Why is it taking so long to get through to you on the phone?

As all our customers are reaching out to us, we are facing an extraordinarily high number of customer contacts while many of our service centers are strained by government lockdowns. As a result of this, we are facing very long waiting times and even disruptions of communication infrastructure both with our suppliers and national telecommunication providers.

Special times call for special measures, and so we ask you to allow us to support the most urgent inquiries first. To keep the phone lines as open as possible please only contact us if your departure is within the next 6 days.


I am waiting for a refund - how long is the waiting time?

Please note that due to the current situation, the refund handling time will take longer than normal. We are unable to specify an exact time frame for the refund as each airline also is under a massive workload, but we will of course do our very best to get your refund to you as soon as possible. You will receive an email when your refund has been processed, hence you are kindly asked to wait for that email before trying to contact us through a phone call or email or social media as our current answering times, like for everyone in the airline industry, is much longer than normal.


Will I get a refund? 

Please use the links below to check what applies to your specific airline. We also advise you to check with your airline on what form of refunds they offer at the moment. Many airlines have now stopped issuing refunds in cash and now only offer rebookings or in some cases vouchers. This affects our ability to process refunds as we are subject to each airline's rules. 

Can you help me claim a refund or change my ticket with the airline I was going to fly with? 

Because of the Covid-19 outbreak the airline industry is facing an extraordinary situation with a large number of flight cancellations and payment refunds. If you wish to change or cancel your flight reservation, we will contact the airline on your behalf in order to change your flight ticket or provide you with a refund or voucher after receiving it from the airline and depending on the applicable airline policy currently.

The airlines continually evaluate and modify their refund policies and we are therefore not able to guarantee you a refund. Our ‘’fee’’ for assisting you in this extraordinary situation, is EUR 30 per reservation. You will also need to pay our support package if you have not purchased it in advance.

Please note that we will deal with all refunds or change requests in the order we receive them and that the expected handling time is longer than usual due to the current situation and the increased volume. We are doing our very best to assist you as soon as possible, but we cannot be held responsible for any delays. 

How will you keep me informed about updates?

You will receive an email when your change or refund has been processed and we ask you to not to contact us for updates on your request but wait for further information via email.

Where can I contact you? 

Right now we are asking you to let us focus on the most critical cases. We can not answer general questions over the phone, social media or email right now. If you have already made a claim or raised an issue with our customer service then we will process your case. You do not need to reach out again. The waiting time is much longer than usual. In many cases you will have to allow for several months of handling time. But both our customer service and the airlines are working as quickly as we can to process all requests. To find information about your flight, and the terms provided by your airline please visit the airlines homepage.
