Tips before you contact Qantas

  • If you need personal assistance with your booking, a baggage issue, etc, you can also talk to one of the regional Qantas regional offices.
  • If you want to cancel your flight and ask for a refund, read the official Qantas information, then fill out the online form to apply for a refund. There is no need to call Qantas. Please note that the refund may take up to 8 weeks to process.
  • Members of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program can receive help via webchat or by e-mail:
  • Direct messages (DM) sent to Qantas social media channels are usually answered promptly. If you are experiencing long waiting times when calling Qantas, try to contact the airline directly on Twitter or Facebook.
  • If you have a relatively simple inquiry (easy to complete by exchanging a few text messages) try contacting Qantas via their SMS service. It appears that SMS-es get replied much quicker than calls, live chat messages, e-mails, or even social media DMs.

Booking through a travel agent can be a game-changer!

If you hate dealing with airlines’ customer care, consider using a travel agent to book your flights. They can remove all that drama from your booking experience. Good travel agents have “air teams” behind them (who have relationships with airlines), often work via a bigger agency, or with support of incredibly strong networks and connections.

When an airline cancels a flight or makes a change to your itinerary, travel agents have the power to handle this for you, on your behalf. They don’t even need to speak to the airline in most cases, since they have access to the backend of a booking system and are permitted to make changes to your reservation. Sometimes, they can even “bend” the rules.

The best thing: you’ll typically pay the same price for the flight ticket. Commissions made by agents generally come from the airline side, not from the customer side.
