Have used them a few times and on the most recent occasion I tried to book at trip to the US through their site, it crashed and the booking failed. Despite me contacting them and them checking the card to make sure it had not been authorised they continued to take payment, 3 times without my authority. They can't explain how they did it. Was told I would get a refund which I did however it was for the wrong amount.
They will not reimburse the charges from the bank as they say they have processed the refund and it's not their fault it takes 5 days, however agree they shouldn't have taken it in the first place.
They won't honour the holiday and said initially that the price didn't exist and it was a computer glitch, I challenged them asking why they debited my account for that amount and they said it was that the computer thought it was for 2 people not 4. I then produced the quote they emailed confirming that couldn't be the case and they agree again it's their fault but won't do anything.
Currently still out of pocket, pursuing them legally for it. Would absolutely say if you can book fine the holidays are what you make them and the prices are good on the face of it, however it would appear they are now doing as other web based companies do and selling holidays that don't exist to get you on the phone.
