Racist and rude ground staff 'Anna'. Snatched my phone from my hand and was not returning it.

Where is my refund?

published

Tigerair, I have now been waiting since the 31/3/20 for a refund on a flight you cancelled and have answered the same questions 3 times now. That's 6 weeks!!! No confirmation on refund, no response to paying and when, no call centre to get answers. Zero stars if you even care about that as there's no way to complain!

Tiger have Improved

published

I gave up on Tiger many years ago however last year I flew with them and found them to be quite good, airfare was a good price and even though the flight was cancelled to next day, they gave me plenty of warning so I wasn't mad and got to spend extra time with my bestie. It's unfortunate about current issues with Coronavirus as I had to cancel a booking for this week but I am hoping they come through with a refund.

Bad customer service

published

I booked a flight from Adelaide to Melbourne, my exam got postponed due to covid -19, I managed the booking online and got flight credits to be used till September, if not used will be forfeited. It's very tricky in this situation to use the credits within that time limit. Calling them no response. And can't even use flight credits without calling them.

You are entitled to refund

published

Further to my recent review and after a second call to them they are still refusing refunds...as per the ACCC you are entitled to a refund as per the below, you do not have to accept their offer of a flight credit nor should you ( with the lowest reviews of any domestic airline in Australia there probably won’t be the option to use a flight credit in the future)
Two years ago, the ACCC put pressure on airlines to offer refunds if it wasn’t reasonable that they would be able to provide a service within a period of time.

“If they can’t provide you with a service within a reasonable period, they need to offer you a refund. You don’t need to accept the credit - you can get a refund.”

DISGUSTING.

published

I had booked a flight from perth to sydney and back but with the corona virus tiger air cancelled all flights which is fine if people are protected but the disgusting bit is that instead of contacting people to let them know and offer solutions they put me on a flight with virgin. they should have called me and asked me, I would have said I want a full refund. the professional way of doing things is contacting customers not behaving like dictators and do as they please. disgusting, disgraceful, unprofessional.

Never Book With This Airline Again! No Customer Service

published

I have booked the domestic flights Mel- Syd for a group of 7 guests who are some from overseas. Due to the ban of visitors to Australia by Australian Government imposed at the moment, our guests were no longer to arrive. Have contacted Tiger Air for the refunds but only given flight credits which unlikely to be used in future. No customer contact service available. Never use this airline again!!!

Delayed flights for 2hours without proper explanation

published

Woke up early in the morning to catch the flight from Adelaide to Melbourne today, scheduled time was 0855hrs and waited at the gate since 0740hrs. Suddenly they informed that the flight is delayed till 1020hrs then again delayed another 30min. Staff didn't even bother to explain why the flight is delayed (would understand if something goes wrong) and no apologies (of course it is not their business). We will have to pay extra money again once we are back to Melbourne airport for a late pick up my car parked there. It was first time to use Tiger, I will swear I will never use this airline. They have already wasted my money and time enough.

Confusing booking site

published

Booking flights to Hobart started with good price then all add ons and unresponsive booking site. Ended up paying for luggage allowance extra one way due to unresponsive site. Not noticed till booking complete ??
Money gone from account but no email of purchase ticket 3 hours later?
Couldn’t use manage my booking without. Rang contact not very good. Mentioned extra payment for luggage and silence!!
I know it a budget airline and first time using but could have a better web site and email confirmation as booking completed
Will review flight once taken fingers crossed

Taxi companies can have their licenses taken away if they do not meet certain standards etc, obviously this does not apply to airlines? Otherwise Tiger Airways would have had their licence revoked by now!!

They are a subsidiary of Virgin Airlines Australia. I think this is why they have not been shut down yet.

Thanks, that makes sense, after they cancelled my daughters flight with only 90 minutes notice they helped her rebook onto a virgin flight costing her an additional $100, sounds like a scam to me??
