SYD > New York trip in 2 days - no refund & no communication
I booked tickets Sydney to NYC departing this week (27/5) in February and requested a cancellation on 24/3. I have received no communication outside of the automated email following my cancellation and no refund. The international flights are cancelled by the airlines. There's no customer service line for Jetabroad. I understand that travel agents and sites are under pressure but the level of communication has been unacceptable.
So not happy
I had put in a refund request on 11th April and still haven't got any response. My flight is on 28th may and i was hoping to get some sort of response in regards to my refund. i had tried to reach them multiple times but had failed and so tried to contact the airlines directly and they mentioned my tickets are already cancelled but there is no request for a refund from the agent. Airlines advised that the refunds can be only arranged through the agent, so they advised to call them and gave me a contact number which was a fax number when i tried. so its kind of a dead end for me. but i will be waiting for a day or two and then will be raising a dispute with my credit card company to take it further.
All communication has now ceased...
Booking JZH62V8 tickets booked via SilkAir and Malindo were all cancelled by the airlines and should have been refunded or at least I should have received a credit of some sort.. All these flights got cancelled in March! Still Nothing from this company!! After multiple emails, nothing! Their contact phone numbers are just loops that get you nowhere and you can never speak to a real person! I am joining the class action if they don't get back to me in the next week... Enough already...

Withholding airline refunds -- JYX674B
Our tickets for Tel Aviv - Istanbul - Venice - Warsaw - Tel Aviv journey on April 3 through April 11 were all cancelled by the airlines before the flights. We did not ask the airlines to cancel the flights.
We asked Jetabroad for refund on March 30.
We received 1 email from Jetabroad on April 7. No refunds were issued to us.
We spent US$2200 for our tickets. Did not see a dime back.
This is just unbelievable.
Cancellation refund taking for ever - JZRHCY
We had a trip booked to Europe via China over Easter. Due to Covid and negative travel advisory, we cancelled our trip in early March. Despite contacting the organisation a number of times, they have never replied and we are still waiting for a refund, it is now almost 10 weeks!!!. We paid over 12,000 for our family trip and have not seen a cent back. This is completely unacceptable.
China airlines flight cancelled, have filled out 2 request forms- JZM87RR
Booking reference: JZM87RR
My China airlines flights have been cancelled. I have filled out a refund request form twice now- 28th March and 8th April with no reply or communications. Would it be possible to receive either a travel credit or refund. Understand it is a busy time but the communication from this company has been problematic. Your website notices are conflicting. I’d advise all of your customers to note down your ABN and address, as I have done. Some guidance would be great as I have spent over $2000 on flights and am doing it tough financially due to covid-19
Ignoring my emails
Reference number: HFXEFL
I have my tickets booked for Europe. I have been emailing and filing for a refund many times for the past 2 months and I STILL haven’t heard anything from Jetaboard, it’s getting ridiculous. I need to cancel my tickets and sort out a refund due to the boarders being closed in Australia we won’t be able to to travel for a very long time. Will not be booking with Jetaboard in the future.
Double standard for the identical tickets
My friend and I purchased identical tickets for a return flight to Auckland to attend our friend's wedding. My friend has had her fee waived while I am told that there is a $85 charge. Sent my friend's reply that she got with a waiver to them and asked them to explain why the double standard but have not received any reply from Jetabroad.
I am extremely sorry to say that if no reply is received this week then I have a great case to take it to ACCC. Identical tickets - same dates of travel and same amount paid yet two different replies from Jetabroad.

Booking References: CMPIIY and VJAHZG. Waiting for a month now, still no action.
Please action our request. We have been patient, waiting for a month now, you need to assure us that we can use our paid tickets for next year. We want to rebook our flights exactly same dates per leg for next year. We bought 6 roundtrip (multileg) tickets from you. Am still hoping you guys can rebook our flights with a reasonable cost. I hope you reply soon.

Worst company. Does not respond , No phone contact, only self generated automatic noreply email
Booking reference code: BAILUW & RNDOHB
Very disappointed with this company. Rang Air NZ in March which said due to Covid 19 all flights have been cancelled and Air NZ is giving travel Credit for flights cancelled. I just want a travel credit and when boarders open between NZ and OZ, I want to attend a family wedding. Does this mean with no response that I have to purchase another ticket to attend the family wedding? I am a pensioner and not buying another ticket where future travel credit refund is due to me. Hope to receive 100% full credit within the next few days.
If not I might need to go to NSW Fair Trading, ACCC or look out for class action. Flight Centre has stopped charging cancellation fees after being intervened by ACCC.
Terrible customer Serice. This kind of businesses are a plague to the society
I had exactly the same kind of experience. I submitted a request for refund 2 weeks before my flight due date(4of April) and haven't heard a single word from anyone. You cannot contact anyone, you can speak to anyone. JetAbroad is probably not thinking of the goodwill they are loosing. I don't see any of the customers with similar experience ever returning to JetAbroad
No Customer Service
There is no customer service that i can talk of.
We wrote to them on 30/3, 19/4 and today 14/5 and have yet to hear anything. Yes, they are understandably busy, but 6 weeks come on, that is the most awful service ever.
Non existent customer service
I submitted a request for a refund over 8 weeks ago. Haven’t heard anything since. Can’t contact them. Messaging them on social media doesn’t work and just refers you back to their FAQs. I have a multi trip flight and airlines won’t deal with me as everything was booked through Jetabroad. Ethihad were previously offering refunds but have since changed to credit voucher only. So had J actioned it quicker, I might’ve received the refund I’m entitled to. How am I supposed to use a credit voucher when I was flying for a work conference which will b...e cancelled and I don’t know if they’ll ever hold the conference again? Will mean losing over $6,000 in flights. This is a very significant amount of money for us, a young family with limited income (only decreasing since COVID19). I will certainly be joining the Slaters class action.
Jetabroad are withholding my travel credit unless I pay a ransom
I booked some flights for $770. The airline cancelled the flights and gave jetabroad a "Free Of Charge (FOC) change permitted per passenger to move the travel date within 12 months at no cost subject".
Now jetabroad is holding my FREE travel credit hostage and threatening to steal $770 of credit from me unless I send them even more money/fees as a direct cash transfer to them as their ransom.
Let's not forget that the airline isn't even flying yet so I now have to pay money to receive travel credit on an airline that isn't taking bookings. That is unfair.
In Australia if someone purchases a service, the provider then cancels the service and then offers $0 refund unless even more fees are paid, we will find out if this is legal.
No customer service or communication and has cost me $4k!!!
I am due to fly to the US on Virgin Australia in September, but booked through Jetabroad. With borders being closed, Virgin announced that flights could be rescheduled or cancelled for a travel credit at no cost. I submitted their online form over 5 weeks ago, and all I received was their automatic email response. I can't contact Virgin as they have advised that I need to deal with Jetabroad. Now Virgin have gone into administration and their website states that they while they are honouring travel credits already processed, they aren't cur...rently processing any new requests refunds or travel credits. If Jetabroad had of actioned my request when I first submitted my form, I would have been eligible for my credit, but because of their inaction, I am now $4k out of pocket. Poor business practice.
Got an answer
Well after 3 weeks off waiting today I had an answer from Jetabroad and after writing again they answered right a way. At least I know now my options and I am happy with it. Just let see what happens next
Terrible company do not use, they keep your money and ignore emails
Won’t refund cancelled flights from weeks ago. I’m owed $550 which isn’t a small amount, yet they ignore emails and don’t provide a contact number. I’ve lodged a formal complaint with ACCC as well as to a class action, as this is poor behaviour. There are people without jobs who need these refunds and ignoring customers is terrible!
Send an email via the website in mid March requesting cancellation of flights due to covid-19(less processing fees) as per their policy. They wouldn’t let you send the request unless you said yes to all their stipulations - so I had to agree with certain conditions that were not in the original contract to even send my request through. It’s beyond ridiculous. Apart from a generic email saying they would get back to me have heard nothing. Unable to find a number to call them ether. Horrendous customer service to be left waiting for 2 months now. Am currently considering legal action as this is the only way I suspect I will get any sort of response. I would strongly NOT recommend this company.
No reply for the mails
We were cancelled our tickets 3 months before. No reply ever since. As a company, they are supposed to reply to our mail at least once, never happened. Please try to respond to us.
Poor genetic communication
I sent a cancellation request through to Jetabroad 29th March 2020 for flights commencing on 14th May 2020. Recieved one generic email and no commication with the company to date. Poor service, poor communication. Will not be using this company again.
Questions & Answers
I have written multiple emails to you guys for a flight change and yet today is my flight day and still no response given. You said will prioritise people who will be flying within 48 hours and I have been patiently waiting without a single response and yet I'm meant to fly today. Reference is CVDYEQ flying from Fuzhou to Sydney with Xiamen Airlines 17th of May. Using the proper way to get in touch but doesn't reply or schedule anything when your meant to fly today are you guys ever going to respond?
Order confirmation JZS27GJ.
Have flight from LHR to Singapore on the 16th May and Air Asia from SIN to DPS Bali on Tuesday 19th May.
Both airlines have confirmed flights are cancelled. AirAsia gave me option to swap for voucher or rescheduling on their website but when I use the information you gave me to search for flight there the booking doesn't show up. How do I contact you regarding the BA flight? I can't manage that one directly with them, told me to contact you....
Hi Customer Service, are you ever answerer my or anybody's questions at all ?
Hi Doris I recieved a really comprehensive response today from Jetabroad and waiting via email. The best way was to message them via Facebook messenger. Good luck.
Hi Sharon, funny after this post I had received an E-Mail today too with the questions answered about my flights.
