“Car Hire rip off”

Written on: 25/05/2015 by glayvagirl2 (1 review written)

Checked online for a car hire in the USA for 3 weeks, picking up in Chicago dropping off in New Orleans. Called to confirm the price yes, it was correct. They offered us the whole hire in medium size car for agreed price, even confirmed it by email and promised that the price quoted was the full and total price we would pay with no extra payments for taxes, insurance, one way hire etc.. even followed this with an email to us. we called back and paid the full amount using the credit card at… Read Full Review

Hi,

We’re very sorry to hear that you’ve experienced problems with our service.

We always want our customers to get the best deals and service - and this is the same with this case. After making the booking, the car hire company mentioned that there is an extra payment to be made directly to them upon pickup – a clause that was not apparent prior to the reservation.

Knowing that this will be a horrible deal for our customer, we argued with the car hire company to get this voided free of cost. Though this was a non-refundable booking, we got it cancelled due to the terms and conditions not being made evident and understandable from the very beginning. The car hire group cancelled the booking as a goodwill gesture and made sure that all their terms and conditions will be made clear from this point onwards.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. If you need anything else please do get in touch with our customer service team and we are happy to help.

Best regards,

Your Globehunters Team

“Trip to Australia”

Written on: 27/03/2015 by GaynorNormanton (1 review written)

After spending hours and hours online and over the phone obtaining prices for flights to Australia and endng up with an array of prices and options it was so refreshing when eventually I spoke to Rodney at Globehunters. Not only was he extremely helpful but he also advised me on the best route and hotels and found me the best deal so far. Not only have I saved a lot of money without skimping on quality but Globehunters were so quick and efficient confirming everything straight away and withing… Read Full Review

“Bad customer service”

Written on: 23/01/2015 by MKJ12 (1 review written)

Worst customer service ever!! The agent who spoke to me was so rude.Instead of helping me to find the right flight according to the fare I got online he kept giving me different fares and when I tried to tell him about the flight details I got online he told me to go online and book it myself and hung up. If I wanted to book it online I wouldn't have called them anyway… Read Full Review

“Personal approach to a confused holiday booker”

Written on: 09/01/2015 by Dominic1976 (1 review written)

They've been super duper helpful when I was booking my super duper last minute Christmas and New Year holiday. What I found amazing was their personal approach and their genuine helpfulness. I called to inquire about a flight price to Havana but after a little bit of chatting, the agent then transformed the call into a very personalized and tailored holiday with my wants, needs and addressed my potential concerns! Never considered Jamaica as a holiday destination but it turned out as one of the… Read Full Review

“Globe hunters for flights to perth”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by r18uty (1 review written)

I just used globehunters to book flights to Perth Australia from Manchester. Globehunters were the cheapest by over £200 and we searched EVERYWHERE! Stupidly I booked before checking their reviews. I then panicked and started checking reviews some of which worried me to say the lease. Most of the bad reviews seem old and in my experience the problems mentioned are no longer present. I received confirmation with minutes followed up by ATOL certificate. I was told I would have etickets within 24… Read Full Review

“Flights”

Written on: 25/11/2013

I am searching for flights to Orlando and came across this website. I entered details of the required flight which generated a reference number and average price of flights. The price seemed to good to be true so I call the number to speak to an agent. I gave the reference number I had been quoted but was told that the information advertised on the website is a guestimate and they were unable to give me a price. Just to let you know that I was told that they are unable to give any prices for… Read Full Review

“Affordable Agent”

Written on: 06/11/2013 by samanthakbentley (3 reviews written)

I found that Globehunters somehow was able to provide flights at a much cheaper price compared to all other comparison sites I checked, I booked online and really managed to save a substantial amount of money which was an added bonus to my Bangkok holiday seen that even 10 pounds can be allot of money in Thailand, though I save almost 100 on my return flight… Read Full Review

Although I must say that one thing I didn't like was the fact that I couldn't clearly understand their agent which does make me hungry as she had a very strong accent, the price they offered for flights and accommodation was very competitive and we booked. The holiday went well and so did the flight and booking process… Read Full Review
