    Credits or refunds on unused travel insurance

    I'm an annual policy holder and had a trip booked for March. I requested a cancellation via their online form in March and had nothing except an email saying "sorry for taking so long" about 7 weeks ago. Now its almost June and still nothing.

    Qantas Revenue booking cancellations (under covid19)

    Maybe just request the cash refund and if it is not agreed then let your bank/credit card take it up as a dispute - failure to provide goods or services paid for? I'm trying this tack with the Malaysia ticket where they actively cancelled it. I'm hoping they will do the same with the much more...

    Qantas Revenue booking cancellations (under covid19)

    For those who have been offered vouchers, I understand these are valid to the end of the year but are there any stipulations on when you have to make a booking to use them? I'm in a similar situation with Malaysia. They have cancelled one of my two flights planned with them and offered vouchers...

    Diner's Club - lounge access on arrival?

    Sadly I think you are correct. Some of the lounges say you just need your card in order to get in and some say card + boarding pass, which of course I won't have. I wanted to kill 4+ hours waiting time (for friend to arrive) in Singapore next year. Might have to pay for access.

    Diner's Club - lounge access on arrival?

    Anyone know if this is allowed? Can't find anything on the Diner's Club site. I'd prefer to have something in writing I can refer to rather than just a call.

    Answered Any downsides on the Diner's Club Lounge access?

    Thanks for the replies, I'm gonna go for it. Yeah but not a concern for me As I said, I do both domestic and international. I think Virgin membership is way more than $150 too (joining fee + yearly sub). I also get 2 x free Virgin (domestic) passes per year with my ANZ CC. I think Priority...

    Answered Any downsides on the Diner's Club Lounge access?

    For Melbourne it lists Plaza Premium in T2 and REX Lounge in T4. The REX lounge is listed as Domestic on the Diner's club app. Plaza Premium is international. Also you can get the Qantas Frequent Flyer Diner's card for $95 + $55 "Rewards Fee". This is without the companion Mastercard (which...

    Answered Any downsides on the Diner's Club Lounge access?

    Having lost my Gold status at Virgin I spotted the article on the front page of the site today which mentioned Diner's Club as a way to gain lounge access. I've checked up the list of lounges and it seems pretty good (more than 850 at present?). I have no interest in claiming rewards as I am...

    HHonors Gold/Diamond for Velocity Gold/Plat

    My Diamond membership came through by email yesterday - a day after chasing Velocity. Annoyingly it expires on March 31st (the day I applied) even though the "member since" date is 22nd April.

    MEL virgin australia valet parking

    Used them a few times but had a nightmare on the last trip. I left my keys (aside from the car key) in the side pocket of the car (not visible from the outside). No point in taking these overseas. When I got back they were gone! Virgin denied taking them so I turned the car and my luggage...

    HHonors Gold/Diamond for Velocity Gold/Plat

    Had the same experience, applied for Diamond Elite on March 30th. Just called Virgin and they said they would chase. Fingers crossed for a response tomorrow.
