Can I cancel my Tigerair flight and get a refund?

Unfortunately, Tigerair’s fares, charges and travel extras are generally non-refundable. You can request a refund of your Government taxes only, and you will get back 50 AUD. You may be entitled to a refund in certain special circumstances in accordance with the Australian Consumer Law. The link has information about what these specific circumstances are. If you don’t fit in any of the categories listed there, you can’t cancel your Tigerair flight. Luckily, Tigerair allow name changes, so you can still get a refund for your non-refundable flight.
