Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Easyjet Easter flights 2020 shared experiences

sorry to hear that snowhound. When the time comes I’m definitely going to request a refund. To be honest, if the flight is not cancelled I’ll move it, as after one Of our family is still recovering from picking “something” up on our ski holiday in February, it’ll be a while before we want to sit in a tube with 300 strangers. We’ll move it to next year in the hope the world is in a better place by then. No guarantees on that though I know.

Thank you very much for the info/number, excellent information Little Angel just rang it, took 16 goes to get through but very straightforward. Refund requested, she said 3-5 days to process.

I had a flight out on 3rd April returning 15th, and had received the usual cancellation emails and voucher offers. Can't remember exactly when, but probablyu after receiveing the status update from the CEO on 4th April (where he confirmed refunds were being offered), I sent them a mail using their contact form making the refund request. Got an email back on Fri 10th (at 23:30) with this information

If you prefer a refund, email your request to flightrefund@easyJet.com.  As soon as your refund is processed, we will send you an email confirmation. It is extremely important that you enter the following information in the subject line of the email, in the same format as shown below.  This will ensure we can process your request quickly. If you have more than one booking reference, please submit separate requests.
Subject Line : Booking Reference/Departure Date/EN

Example : ABC1D2E/16042020/EN

So did immediately what they asked, the request was acknowledged Sat 17:30, notification of refund to card Tues 15:15, and now refund appearing in online statement.

It's easy to criticise, with the removal of the refund button, but it's an unprecedented situation and they have immense challenges. But they've got their act in order now, and I think they're doing well in the circumstances. No complaints.

I've had a partial refund. I paid in two parts - flights & a bag. Then added bag & seats. The first has been paid last night, so just a day after request. Pretty good I reckon.

Edit: rest of refund received overnight.

Conflicted now, actually impressed with the speed and efficiency of this refund process but still incredibly frustrated that they made it so difficult to ask for.

A positive development on our cancelled mid-March flights.

After 30+ days of "refund being processed", we managed to get through to the EasyJet call centre this morning to chase the refund, as advised on the Covid-19 section of the website. They immediately agreed to process the refund (they also asked if we'd prefer travel credit, which we declined).


A quick update to say that I've checked my credit card statement and we have been fully refunded (and the date of the transaction is the same day we rang them - last Sunday).

So thumbs up to EasyJet from us. Next up, Ryanair...

So did the Bat Phone No. @norris, 4 min wait. Spoke to a human and asked for vouchers. Done and dusted in 10 mins total. Email received while still on phone:

Value: 308.37 GBP
Reference: XXXX
Codeword: XXXXXX
Expiry Date: 16 April 2021

"Your flight voucher can be used against the cost of a new booking or to add extras such as hold luggage, allocated seating etc. to a new or existing booking too. In order to use your voucher you will need to call our Customer Service Team".

Perfect. Just need to choose the new dates and might wait until things have calmed down before calling them again. October might be about right!!

Update on the batphone.

If you get the generic we're busy message, just hang up as it will disconnect you. Keep trying and when you get the answer with the option to press 1 for English etc, choose your option and then wait.

I was on hold for all of 30 seconds after selecting my language preference and the person processed my refund request with no fuss.

Thanks for the tip!!

My flights for the EOB have now been cancelled, so I checked them on the app and was given the options of changing flight or a refund. At the bottom of the page was a button for ‘What are my other options’ or something similar. I clicked on the link for requesting a refund and was presented with a refund request form. I filled that in with my details I.e. Booking ref, name and email address and just got a blank page back but scrolled back up and the form had disappeared and replaced by a successfully submitted message. I’ll let you know what happens.

I have a return trip booked from Basel back to the UK for the end of May and have received an email from Easyjet saying not cancelled yet but they know it might be and that I might not want to fly regardless. They are therefore offering for me to change for free or receive a “thank-you” voucher if I take the credit. I do intend to fly once things open up again so I theory I’m happy with the credit. I was about to mail the address in the email to take them up on it when I noticed the following text:
Quote:
Bookings transferred or issued with vouchers will not be eligible for a refund in the event of flight cancellation.

Which seems a fairly concerning risk to take on a flight in the next 12 months! If most people on a given flight paid with voucher/transfer then what is their inclination to even run it?

It also looks like the voucher can only be used for one booking, so if (as looks likely), my eventual replacement flight is cheaper than the original then I would lose the difference. To further complicate matters I had a car hire booking included in the booking and I’ve no idea what happens with that...

This “offer” is only valid until 1st May and my outbound flight is for the 16th May. Can anyone who has been through the process already for earlier flights advise if I can get a proper “credit” if the flight is actually cancelled? Obviously that carries with it the risk that if they do decide to run it I lose the lot.

They are trying to force your hand by putting 'offer runs out 1st may'-don't blame them - I read it costs £5million per day to run Easyjet atm without a flight even taking off.
like any business ,they are trying to mitigate losses and keep ,at least, some revenue coming in.
Personally ,I would gamble that your flight was going to be cancelled (I can't see flights taking off for a good while yet)-sit it out and then either ask for a refund or transfer flight after the original one is cancelled.

I’ve rescheduled our Spanish flights to next year at a total increase of £48. We’ve decided to take our teens too (will probably regret that Very Happy ) but because we dithered over a week doing so, the cost per person rose from about £80 to £150. Every time I refreshed the screen the price was shooting up. Clearly a very popular flight. It’s just that only I have decided to allocate seats because the plane diagram shows It as otherwise empty!! I hate these sorts of tactics.

"First time I've booked with these bandits. Also the last."

Shocked

Unprecedented circumstances at the moment. Seems like they are doing ok to me.

Then again - I'm a veteran of hundreds of EJ flights, so have lots of positive experience of an airline that has undoubtedly changed travel for the better for millions of folk throughout Europe.

@Bergmeister, yes I'd agree with you. I've used easyjet many times, and have had many positive experiences. They impressed me when our Geneva flight was cancelled due to an air traffic controllers strike. They put us up in a lovely hotel, with two rooms with an adjoining door so we lots of space. Free food and good facilities. Apart from the lack of clean clothes, we've actually got some nice memories of the 3 days we spent in Geneva.

I knew that it wouldn't be easy to get the refund, but I also anticipated that easy jet would play fairer than Ryanair. I sent my email request to flightrefund@easyJet.com about ten days ago - I knew it would take longer to process than a phone call, but was also loathed to spend hours on the phone trying to get through to them (at least not as a first resort). This morning I had email confirmation that they were refunding me. It hasn't hit my bank account yet but expect that in the next 24 hours or so.

Easyjet cancelled our flights, as expected on 5 April from Manchester to Geneva. We tried to obtain a refund but after many, many attempts at trying to speak to someone in customer services, pressed the request a voucher button. This was on the 7 April, as of today, we still haven't received the voucher or indeed any communication from Easyjet at all. I have tried ringing the number 0330 365 5000 but still can't get through. I've also tried using their 'contact us form' but it doesn't seem to be working. Has anybody else had to wait this long for their refund or voucher? Have any Snowheads had success using a different telephone number?

@wishfulthinker, check back through this thread. There's a Manchester number we've being calling the "batphone" which appears to be doing the trick. There's also an email address which gets straight to refund form. I used email to apply for refund, no money het but did receive an email acknowledgement.

I've e mailed and filled in the online refund form (cancelled flights for 18 and 25 April) but had only an acknowledgment as yet. I guess that they're working slowly through them.
Mind you, I put in a credit card charge back much earlier on, and only even got an acknowledgement from them a few days ago. Must be swamped and struggling. Can't imagine why.

Manchester number is a myth. Recorded message telling you to ring customer service number. Refund@easyjet is a myth. Automated response sorry this mailbox is not monitored etc.

Sadly the rosy picture painted by the fanboys is also a myth. After weeks of trying I spoke to customer service this morning and after several attempts to give me a voucher the person got snotty and accepted my request for a refund.

Lufthansa on the other hand took 2minutes 38 seconds to sort a refund on the first time of trying. No pressure for a voucher and a very polite manner.

Fanboys? Anyone in particular you're referring to?

For anyone else struggling.. flightrefund@easyJet.com worked well for me. Just put you booking reference\date of flight\EN in the email title. Took about ten days to get the refund back which seemed reasonable. It would have been a hell of a lot easier if they just put a refund button on the website. At least the email address approach was straight forward, and I didn't have to spend any time on the phone trying to get through.

I've searched this (and other threads) but can't find anyone who has managed to get a refund for flight out (in our case on 19 March - Bournemouth to GVA) which wasn't actually cancelled, and return flight which was cancelled. We would not have been allowed to board the flight out as Switzerland would not have allowed us in.

Has anyone got a refund for a flight that wasn't actually cancelled but which we would not have been allowed to board?
