Service Rating


Transfer cancelled and refund refused

I was booked with Amber Transfers. They cancelled the transfers that I had booked with them 2 days before my outbound flight. I then had to scramble to get an alternative set of transfers at higher cost. They then refused to refund me promptly, so I had to report them to Mastercard via Revolut as not delivering the services that I already paid for and after 4ish weeks I got a full refund. In short, they wasted a lot of my time.
