    Flight Credit. Anybody got a refund?

    While it wouldn't surprise me if some did jack up the prices to 'make up' for lost income, the majority of hotels are struggling so I think they'd just be happy with any income. There's some crazy deals going on Agoda at the moment. I've booked decent hotels around Soi 20 for cheaper than the price of a ST room. Previous hotels for 2k+/night going for 600-700.

    Yes if and when we can all travel we need to watch the flight prices. On the one hand, they could go sky high ( see what I did there) as airlines try and get some money back, or they could do some deals to get people back to travelling. Same goes for hotel prices and travel insurance.

    Yeah I was thinking the same about having to top it up if the prices go sky high or I may use it for a multi trip around Europe in September when my niece gets married as she lives and works in Ibiza. I looked at a trip Manchester-Amsterdam-Madrid-Ibiza-Amsterdam-Manchester £425 and use the remainder for upgrades for leg room

    I got budget for a very good 2 weeks short blast of a balls-out trip and yes having a flight already paid for is good. (unless the prices go up that much and I have to top it up)

    Yeah I would have liked the cash as well in these precarious times. But having had my first vaccine on Thursday I’m starting to see a way out and have hope I’ll be back in Thailand this year

    Do you still have the credit voucher ? I couldn’t get my money back but happy they extended the credit to 31st December 2021 Bit of luck I’ll have Christmas in Bangkok or Pattaya

    I got an answer from the card company. It's No. Fuck it Looks like I waited to long. Oh well I got another year so will now have to sit and wait.

    Just got off the phone with KLM and all vouchers issued from March 3rd 2020 are extended to 31st December 2021. As mine was the 4th March I’ve made it by one day Here’s hoping Thailand is back open for tourists without quarantine by then.

    I booked a flight from London to BKK with Thai for 2020, it was of course cancelled and has now been rebooked for 3 weeks in November 2021...the flight was cheap when I originally booked it so I thought rebooking would be better than maybe it costing a lot more when things open up...

    I had an Emirates booked for last November. I kept it as an open ticket valid 2 years rather than refund as it was at a bargain price. I'm assuming when I get to use it that prices will be higher

    And I have done just that. Called them Tuesday and told them the details. I asked if this would be goods not received and was told yes. I have to wait up to 45 days but I got time to wait 555

    Time to call your credit card company and state that the flight is the same as "Goods not received". Airline companies will have you going around in circles before you get a straight answer.

    After 2 phone calls to get a person who had half a brain I got an answer from Ethiad........ they aint gonna give me a refund Not sure that's totally legal still?
  22. Thanks to all who replied. Useful and constructive feedback fellow BMs! I will struggle on having been denied the enlightenment of Advanced Membership. Shades of L. Ron Hubbards scam Scientology and Xenu, the evil galactic overlord??
  23. There's a lot of bigoted bullshit and as you say 'old man yelling at cloud' stuff but some solid info to be had outside of that - I found the ignore button to be invaluable. You can soon spot which thread will degenerate.
  24. Fair enough, I probably rag on the place too much. There's def good intel to be had on there and if I were in Patts more often I'd be on there more. The TS models tube thread is really useful for finding local LBs who have done porn. Maybe liberal use of the 'ignore user/thread' function would solve my issues with the place.
  25. Im not an advanced member but I find the public info to be quite handy still
  26. I really enjoy both the advanced and public sector of the pats site, there is loads of info that also covers BKK as well. I have always found the vast majority there to be a decent bunch .
  27. Funnily I actually started there first- my account on there is from 2010 (shit that's 10 years ago). Much busier than here but the bitching that goes on between a few long-timers that derails every other thread is annoying, plus the general "old man yells at cloud" feel of the place- like ThaiVisa forums if you've ever had the misfortune of visiting. Not that there's anything wrong with the experienced crowd but a few seem to miss the irony of the whole "young people are ruining everything, anyway I wanna fuck this young person"
  28. Taaseesanuk and ssmurry : all true. The Bangkok public forum is everything you need as a newbie, it helped me a lot 2 or 3 years ago. Advanced section in the Pattaya forum is fantastic - not now obviously - , you should try to advance there ssmurry. By the way, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY ! Wish you many lbs and the best.
