What Do I Do If I Missed My Kiwi Flight?

If you have missed your Kiwi flight, keep reading for some helpful tips of what to do next

Nov 18, 2019

Kiwi.com is a Czech online platform that allows users to book affordable flights, train tickets, and bus tickets. As of 2017, it's one of the biggest sellers of airline tickets for Europe. This may be because Kiwi.com uses a fare aggregator that searches all travel sites for all pricing, and shows its customers the best deal.

Additionally, Kiwi.com has a "Kiwi Guarantee." The guarantee promises to protect passengers from flight delays, flight cancellations, and schedule changes. In these scenarios, Kiwi.com will offer passengers an alternate flight to their destination or refund the cost of the unused tickets. If you are unable to get on a flight quickly enough and you are "stuck," Kiwi.com may cover the costs of transportation to another airport, overnight accommodations, or food and drinks for delays more than four hours.

If you have missed your Kiwi flight, keep reading on your step-by-step instructions of what to do next.

Rules for the Kiwi.com Guarantee

In order to benefit from the Kiwi.com Guarantee, you need to follow a few steps.

  1. You need to contact Kiwi.com as soon as you are aware of any situation that impacts your trip.

  2. You need to respond to all offers from Kiwi.com within 24 hours.

    • Note that if there are more than 48 hours to your departure, Kiwi.com gets to decide if you will be put on a new flight or get a refund. Within less than 48 hours, you are able to make the decision.

  3. Do not make any flight changes without the approval of Kiwi.com. If you do, Kiwi.com is not liable to cover costs or offer refunds.

  4. If Kiwi.com allows you to buy a flight that is not available online, they will require proof of payment for that flight within 14 days.

Why does GetHuman Write How-to Guides for Kiwi.com Problems?

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Kiwi.com in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster.

Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department.
