Do you really need to call Qatar Airways?

Experienced travelers always use self-service options online or through the airline app first to see whether the problem can be solved without the help of an agent over the phone. For example, there’s no need to contact Qatar Airways customer service if you just want to check the status of your booking, change the date of your flight, or cancel your trip – you can do this by visiting Manage Booking section of Qatar‘s website (you will need booking reference or ticket number and passenger’s last name).

Basically, before contacting Qatar it’s always a good idea to check their support pages such as Help Center, Travel Alerts, Newsroom, Travel Requirements, and General FAQ. They often provide answers to the most common questions and problems you may have. This can be a real time-saver when you take into account the call center wait times.

If you need help with a reservation made not through the Qatar Airways website/app but with a third-party such as OTA, travel agent, etc – try contacting their sales office for quick assistance.

Requesting a refund

If you want to request a refund, there’s no phone number to make contact – it can only be done via the website. To request a refund, log in to your account on Manage Booking section of the website by providing your last name and the confirmation number of your flight reservation. You’ll then have the option to request a refund or check its status.

Changing a flight online can sometimes result in errors. Moreover, your issue can be simply too complicated to handle without some assistance from the airline. In that case, here is the list of Qatar Airways support channels you can use to contact and ask for help:

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.
