I booked two flight tickets from Cheapoair, later I found I can use mileage to buy the tickets from the same airline, so I called to cancel my reservation in three days, I only got partial airfare I paid back, plus $300 cancelling fee, total more than $500 loss.

When I booked tickets, there was "free cancellation" on the page, it is not real "free cancellation".

I booked a flight to China through your website. Decided the dates I had originally never fitted in my plans. I asked your administration how much it would cost to alter the return. £500 was the answer on a ticket that initially cost me £400. Therefore I had no other choice to cancel the flight and, book another flight at another £400. I asked for a refund of the first ticket and, got back just £1.00 with out reason or, breakdown as too what happened to the rest of my hard earned money. Ticket i/d 5249939. Maybe you could help with this one or, explain where my money went. Don't forget CheapOair had almost 3 months to sell on that ticket. It was a last minute cancellation.

I booked a ticket through this CheapOair , only to change the return date a few weeks later. I paid £400 for the ticket and, they wanted over £500 so I could the return date. Therefore I cancelled and, guess what? A refund of £1.00. What a rip off! No reason as to why the refund was so little, or any explanation. Last time I have any dealings with them.

cancel a reservation here is more difficult to see the president of US.the costumer service in English is bad.they send you from representative to representative ( in my case 4 time more than 30 minutes between representative).They have to solve this problem.or they will lose customers.Good luck. God Bless.
Received $150 refund back. Appreciate that.
Part of the change was taken away by airline, not CheapOair.
A refund of $150.00 was processed back to the customer.

Our customers concerns are important to us, therefore we have refunded $150.00 back to the traveler.

Dear Customer, free cancellation if you click on the link says within 24 hours not 3 days later. Once you miss the 24 hr grace period all rules and penalties are applicable. I would be glad to review the charges and see if anything can be done. Email the booking number to.
