Please don't book with this company, they quote prices then remove more than expected from your card. We are in a current dispute and I will up date every one on their actions, so far they are being bullying and threatening. Anyone with any tips or resources to help stop them please get in touch. … Read Full Review

321 Travel do not illegally remove monies from cards. All costing are explained on your booking call and recordings back this up. We have advised you to send your issue to the TTA who have given a verdict that our call recordings support that.

We are however sorry to hear you feel this way.

“BEWARE do not use this company !”

Written on: 12/06/2013

I booked a holiday with this company last week, after forking out nearly £900 over the phone on my debit card, I discovered that what I was MEANT to be getting for my money was completely different on paper and I only realised this once I received my confirmation email. Was told I would be flying direct to/from Aberdeen airport, only to discover that we are flying into Birmingham airport on the way home, with a seven hour wait at the airport before flying back up to Aberdeen. I was told I had… Read Full Review

I am not a spammer, I will continue to comment about you on ever forum I can, you have no idea who I
I am and last time I looked the NHS the "company" I work for doesn't care who I book my holiday with. You are an unpleasant company and I'm gutted to have been so ripped off and had to deal with such aggressive behaviour. but please you carry on making comments as its all going as evidence.

Summer37 isn't a spammer, this is just an example of you guys trying to marginalise a genuinely disgruntled customer.

Anybody reading should look at this as the tip of an incredibly disgusting ice berg. Avoid this company.

Having listened to all the calls you were quoted on a seat save fare. The terms were read to you 'flights will be indirect, involve a stop, or change of aircraft on route'. At no point on the call were you told you were flying on a direct route, they do not fly one from Aberdeen.

Regards to the bags, no low cost airline includes this free of charge, that is an additional extra.

We forwarded your issue to the TTA and liased with trading standards with our supporting evidence who both ruled we acted appropriately throughout, however we are sorry you feel this way.

If what you are saying is true, that they do not operate a direct route between Aberdeen airport and Ibiza, then why was it possible for me to fly direct from Aberdeen to Ibiza on my outbound journey with no stops? Again, the information you are stating is false and incorrect. First Choice and Thomson holidays also offer a direct flight from Ibiza back to Aberdeen on a Wednesday departing 11:30 arriving at ABZ at 13:50 so it is misleading to say that you can't get a direct flight between Aberdeen and Ibiza. Regarding the baggage issue, it may be common knowledge to you or someone who works in your industry that no low cost airline includes baggage free of charge, but someone like myself who usually travels with a reputable company (not budget/low cost) should be made aware at the time of booking that the price you have quoted DOES NOT include baggage allowance and it is only right and professional that you make your customer aware of this at the time of booking and offer them the option of purchasing baggage allowance. I am amused to hear that you went to trading standards (off your own back) to check that you had dealt with my issue in the correct manner. As far as I was concerned the matter was closed and forgotten about and I have not once mentioned that I was going to take the matter further. The fact that you liaised with trading standards speaks volumes - it seems you were unsure if you really had dealt with my issue correctly and needed reassurance from them. You obviously had concerns that your company MIGHT not have handled my matter correctly because you went and checked with trading standards to cover your own back. I have no desire to discuss this matter further. As far as I am concerned, even if you DID read the terms and conditions to me over the phone and informed me that 'flights will be indirect, involve a stop etc etc....', that is still no excuse for not coming to the phone when I tried calling several times, hanging up on me when I DID eventually get through to you and, well, your appalling lack of customer care in general. I trust this matter is now closed and we shall agree to disagree that your company is anything but a money hungry disgrace to the travel industry. Thank you

“Missold Holiday, add on charges and poor customer service!”

Written on: 07/06/2013 by PrincessJasmine (1 review written)

Have recently booked a holiday. At first the staff seemed helpful and friendly. This was until the confirmation came through. We were sold a 5pm flight from Liverpool airport, when we received the confirmation 10 minutes later it was then a 18.15 flight. My name was also incorrect on the confirmation, I was also told the price of my holiday and then to my horror was charged £72.00 booking fee which was NOT mentioned. When I had called to query this I was told by someone that they would not… Read Full Review

On the booking you was indeed told the booking fee of £18 x 4, this is the extra £72. This is a charge you were quoted and we simply do not add that on, it is illegal to do so. With regard to the hour difference in time we are sorry if that hour inconvenienced you in any way but it is out of our control.

You may take a different view, but you did call in to air your views about the hour difference, at this point you became very rude and started shouting at the advisor who was trying to help. You are free to call in any time to go through your issues but our staff can only take so much when they receive abusive phone calls.

In any walk of business there are certain problems and issues that crop up from time to time, we have a team that are here to listen and help, but please also treat them with common courtesy.

We book many thousands of passengers each month and over 99% of them are very happy with the service we provide.

Just like any travel agent there are optional additional extras (bags,transfers,parking,room upgrades, various flight uprgrades etc) and there are extras we as an agent may charge (credit card fee if using one, booking fee if it applies). The price you see advertised as with any agent is for your flights and hotel only. Anything else charged is based on your decisions, debit card, no charge, just hand luggage, no charge etc.

This libellous comment 'RIPOFF' is simply false and we take such postings extremely seriously.

We are sorry for any customer service issues you feel you had.

I have an identical experience to this and looking at the comment that 'ripoff' is a libellous term. Well that is exactly how I feel after dealing with your travel firm. I feel ripped off and anyone who values their peace of mind and the effort it takes to save your hard earned money should not pick the phone up to 321 Travel. Avoid this company, avoid avoid avoid.

Used 321 Travel to book flights for 16 people to Lanzarote for christmas. The names were not correct on the tickets so we contacted them several times to get them changed, but they didnt want to do it. they just kept saying that it would be ok. ( the womens tickets had MR on them and the surnames were spelt incorrect as well. Got to the airport and of course was stopped because of the names wrong, had to pay £104 per person for name change and then told that all seats together had not been… Read Full Review

We are sorry you experienced such issues but you were fully refunded for this. Low cost airlines at that time were a first come first served basis with regard to seating.
