How do we get our money back for bookings in July to Singapore?
How do I get my e-ticket for booking no. BJT153775003290 made with Bestjet. This booking was made on 24 September 2018.
Please help me with the number. I book return ticket to overseas and there was issue with it.
There is no number that is current. The only way is to contact the airline and enquire if your tickets are valid. If not and they are not willing to help. Then contact your bank and ask for a charge back. As most banks have fraud insurance. Then you will have to rebook your tickets. It is unfortunate we all have been scammed.
I bought Business Class tickets from Bestjet in Sept 2018 for travel Business Class China Air Bris - Tokyo in April .
2019. Received confirmation from China Air in Oct.2018 . Just checked on the China Air website today & all looks OK with the China Air Res. No bringing up my flights OK. Does that mean all is OK in terms of China Air having got my payment from Bestjet ? Can't phone China Air until they open Mon.
I am just wondering if anyone has booked Qatar flights through bestjet. We did 5/12 and our flights appear as confirmed on Qatar website as of today and app. Called twice to confirm last week and no issues apparently? Not flying until late June so potentially 6 months of stress ahead.
Booked with Qatar Airways through Bestjet on 20th August, 2018. Received E tickets from Qatar on that date. Flight to depart Sydney on 3rd May. Booking is still showing as confirmed on their website. Tried to call Australian number but can’t get through, left message 3 times. Eventually called Qatar number & spoke to them. Not sure if they fully understood my concerns but they claimed booking was fine & emailed me another e ticket. No different to the original e ticket. Still feel a little uneasy, but all should be well?
Alan T, visit Qatar Airways web site and find MANAGE MY BOOKING enter your booking reference no and it should then tell you if your ticket is confirmed, very easy to find out. You are one of the lucky ones! Australian web sites should be forced to put money into bank accounts which cannot give access to the company and only used for cases like this one and refund money to customers or when the ticket has been booked the only person that is allowed to change or cancel is the name of the customer. I will never ever book another airline ticket on these dodgy web sites and go straight to the airline or use a travel agent, so this will cost me more but my money and ticket will be safe. Even having travel insurance does not cover and event like this. This husband and wife team should be brought to task, all assets sold and money returned to customers. I think you are safe and all should be well.
Thank-you, Pat FR. I agree, I have been one of the lucky ones. Still a little anxious that the ticket can be cancelled without my knowledge, which should not be possible at this stage. I think cancelled funds should not go back to the TA but to an escrow account. In future I will book directly with the airline or through a bona fide TA. Bestjet have had a chequered history. The signs were there. The new owners seem a bit suspect, too. If they took over in early November, these refunds have been occurring under their watch.
Alan I booked tickets through Bestjet in November to fly in February. When I first learned about Bestjets administration I called the airline (Emirates) directly and they assured me my flight was confirmed and sent me through the e-ticket. I then went on to manage my booking and put in my reference a few days later and nothing came up. I called Emirates again and they advised the ticketing company cancelled my tickets (and could do up until my departure date) so I would advise you to continually check to ensure your booking is valid.
HOW are people getting in touch with best jet? I have a flight next month and need to look in to cancelling it or changing it? The number I was given doesn’t work.
Hi Jack, I have ticket cancelled a few months back. I didn't know BJ collapsed and kept waiting for refund until recently I knew it's not possible to contact BJ. I am trying to contact Qantas, the airline I had a ticket.
If your ticket still valid, cancelling or changing should go via airline directly.

Dear Rob JV I booked Singapore Air to Rome Italy leaving 27th May 19 and returning 26th Jun 2019 and paid to Bestjet.com on 14th Dec 18. On 17th Dec 18 I received the confirmed e-tickets.(SQ5272, SQ366, SQ265 & SQ 5339) On receiving BESTJET ALRT I checked booking on Singapore Air Website, Manage Booking, only to find out they were cancelled. I sent e-mail and called Singapore Airline, they said Agent cancelled my booking and refunded to the Agent ( I don't know if the Agent was Bestjet.com or its ticketing company) without my consent. I called to my credit card company on 25th Dec 18 and I am still waiting for the investing team to contact me. Could you please advise me if I can get chargeback from Credit Card Company or any other way my booking can be honored, which SQ rejected but offered to keep the booking and I can buy the same flight with some extra? I still don't get it why liquidated company can cancel the existing booking on the liquidated day.
SQ won’t help you as they have not been paid and never will be. Bestjet has taken your money. I can’t tell if your credit card issuer will give you a charge back, but they should and it takes time- perhaps days to a few weeks. You will need to purchase tickets again, if you can’t afford to yet you will need to wait for the charge back. Travel insurance does not cover Financial Default of an agency like Bestjet. Maybe next time purchase direct from the airline rather an online agency.
Hi I have booked tickets in September for travelling Next week, rang airline , said tickets are confirmed but not guarantee, I have 5 days period to travel and still unsure what to do. I received Etickets and seat number confirmed. Can bestjet still cancel my tickets ?
