“Fareboom is a joke”

Written on: 03/04/2014 by bez1 (1 review written)

I found a "good" price on a flight...got excited, as it was much lower than other sites. Started booking!... and!...what I've got in answer:
""Price check: The selected itinerary price has changed due to changing seat or fare availability. The new price is C$286 higher than originally quoted. If you wish to try other itineraries close the current selection.""
I'VE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES THE SAME PRICE ...WITH THE SAME RESULT!

Don't go there!... the Flighthub is much better!

We regret the negative review posted for an unknown route and by an unknown user, purportedly seeking to advertise our competitor that is typically significantly more expensive than us. We would be more than happy to investigate the fare change incident to determine its root cause if given a chance.
We search aggressively millions of fares and hundreds of airlines and this may result in a very small margin of misquotations from time to time. Each itinerary is pre-checked for fare accuracy before the actual customer booking to ensure that customers see the up-to-date price before submitting their passenger and payment information. In other words once you book with us your discount fare is accurate and secured, contrary to what others are reporting about the mentioned website.

We would like to review the problematic itinerary in order to address the problem as quickly as possible. We seek to serve to our customers accurate fares at all times, while we acknowledge that due to so-called data caching prices may change at itinerary selection time (and before booking) under rare circumstances. We continuously work to address these issues with consumer reporting assistance.
