I've already booked my holiday and paid for in full the flights and accomodation. The ladies I were meeting up with have all cancelled and are no longer attending. What sort of refund would I be entitled too?

Hi
My question is we have booked a hotel and flights with hello world but have just found out there will be Major construction happening at the hotel we have booked. We have chosen another hotel that we would like to stay at but have been told that it is not on hello words supplier list. We have been told that we will have to pay a cancellation fee if we do not wish to go through one of your hotels but I’m having trouble getting an answer on how much this cancellation fee would be and how much we paid for the original hotel as it was part of a package. We don’t wish to cancel the flights just the hotel .
Thank you for any information you can give me

How soon do I pay for my ticket after I book it?

Hi Billie-Jean, If you book online you will have to pay at checkout before the booking is made. You may get longer through a helloworld retail agent depending on the Airline and fare.

Hi Bob, May we ask that you contact the Customer Service team with your booking reference ? Was this an online booking or through a retail store ?

I have a dispute with a NSW Hello World Office.

I am looking to resolve the issue at a level above the franchisee.

I do not wish to raise the issue or specific agent publicly.

I would appreciate details of who might assist me to facilitate a resolution.

THanks. Greg

Hi Greg,

Do a company search (it can be done on-line) get the name of the Managing Director and write to him/her in a personal capacity i.e mark your letter "Private & Confidential"..........Don't deal with order takers i.e. franchise people deal with the decision makers!

I booked a cruise for my husband and I and put a $400 deposit , I had to cancel my cruise 14 months prior to cruise , the travel agent said she would have to charge a small cancellation fee .. I asked her how much and she said $50 per person totalling $100 for her trouble and had to be paid .. is this fair I should lose 25 percent of my hard earns money for 5 minutes work ??

When you booked, T&C would have been provided to you. It is not the travel agents who are charging you the fees, but actual cruise ships. If the cruise has a cancellation fee, travel agent has to follow it to the line. The logic behind cancellation policies including airlines & cruise is that they have lost potential customers & would have to spend extra to find another customer for that seat/cabin. I can assure you that when any travel agent who cancel tickets, would not even get a dime from the cancellation fee. Some agents (including flight center) do charge service fee for any kind of service they provide.

I was a customer, same as you. Suggest contacting the airline, they should be able to explain the rules. If not, maybe get more info from the person who gave you the tickets?

I booked a trip from Melbourne to Guayaquil. The first flight is domestic from Melbourne to Sydney. I used the Record Locator to find the reservation on Qantus but apparently they have my name wrong.("ms" appended after my first name). Just wondering if it will affect my trip?

I would phone Qantas to check for yourself. I had to phone Vietnam Airlines several times to check all the mistakes Helloworld made with my booking. Best of luck and take it as a lesson never to use Helloworld again

You can book a fare that includes baggage, you can add baggage (if the fare permits) during the booking path or you can contact the airline directly after you have made your booking. To find information on the baggage fees and allowances applicable to any flight, please consult our Baggage Fee and Information Page; these fees are subject to change at any time.
