“Do not book! Beware of agent name JAY. Lose your money”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Helplesspassenger (1 review written)

They are nothing but rude and dangerous. Will talk you in to make a non refundable installment and when you have , they will tell you your flights are cancelled and prices have gone up. Will yrap you on giving more money and harass you endlessly. No manners eapecially a certain agent. A non knowledgeable customer service personnel and another rude person. I ended up losing my 1000 deposit as they would not allow me use that to accomodate a single person flight in a group booking. Immeasurable… Read Full Review

“Terrible! Awful experience, not worth the stress!”

Written on: 23/04/2014 by Stack189 (1 review written)

Awful experience! I never usually write a review, but I had such a terrible experience that I needed to. When I first booked my flight, it said that it had gone through online, and the money had left my account, however it said that there was an error and no confirmation. Nothing else. I tried to call their offices but they were closed. Once I finally got hold of them 2 days later, I was put on hold for about half an hour only to be told that the person I needed to speak with was on lunch. So… Read Full Review

“Worse Service”

Written on: 10/04/2014 by Miles326 (1 review written)

I have started the chat online and suddenly they stopped responding, Closed the window and sent the request and the message came up saying your request has been cancelled. Very strange. Also the prices displayed in the website are totally different when you call them. You cannot book the tickets online. Its just a cheap trick that they show cheap price online and when you want to book they force you to call them and wont let you to proceed with the booking. When you actually call them they say… Read Full Review

“Great service, would use them again...”

Written on: 17/01/2014

After booking with them and reading the reviews I was really worried I even called the airline to check we were on the flight! I should not of worried as everything was fine. I would definitely use them again the man I spoke to was really helpful giving me alternative flights that suited me better and when I emailed a few days before to ask a question they came back within 5 minutes. I had been searching for weeks for these flights as over new year and they were the cheapest I found. So if… Read Full Review

“Scam Artists”

Written on: 10/11/2013

If you read the small print you discover that all their online 'quotes' are for outbound flights only, and do not account for return. I called them today and at first they gave me a reasonable price outbound + return, at about 30% less than market value, however, the sales person then asked me to confirm the dates so I had to repeat them. This was his excuse to the some 'more typing' which was in essence market research. So I waited a minute or two on the phone, then he tells me that the price… Read Full Review

“Poor service”

Written on: 03/11/2013

Called to see about a cheap advertised flight after a while on the phone waiting the quoted price was more expensive than booking direct with the airline. When I asked about the quoted cheaper flight the rude male staff member told me that it was without tax and that I was to go and book elsewhere and hung up. Poor customer service never ever calling them back and will be telling friends not to either… Read Full Review

“All they want is your money!!”

Written on: 23/04/2013 by Xbondibabex (1 review written)

I talked to someone on live chat on this website and managed to get a flight for the dates I wanted, well that's what I thought!! She emailed me my flight, I noticed the return date was wrong, then she said would you like this date which was wrong again, I said look can I cancel this as nothing was confirmed!!! She then emailed me telling me it would cost £200 to cancel something that wasn't even booked!! So then I started to panic! I told her the dates again to see if she could get it right!!… Read Full Review

Wana's Response to Xbondibabex's Review

Written on: 08/09/2013

my experienced was different tactics from this travel agency. WE booked it and paid for the deposit,but didn't sent our tickets and itirenary right away,when my partner called them,they said they are still waiting for the airlines to give them the go. that they are waiting for the airlines to say there are some seats remained.That's the most ridiculous story we ever heard. so meaning if the airlines say,there's no seats left,we asked them what would happen next then,they said they will find us another options. which means,another price which maybe cheap or expensive ( I believed it will be the latter) and then because you don't have any choice because of the traveling dates and for desperation,you will be trapped to their tactics. we asked them to cancel our tickets which as usual they will say there's a cancellation fee of £200!! anyway,we managed to get all the deposits after threatening them to go to the trade authorities who does all these kind of problems.

Rang Wisemiser and spoke to a very pleasent and helpful member of staff. I was looking for a direct flight to Thailand and he searched while I was on the phone. He gave me an excellent price which I accepted. As I couldn't print the E ticket out at home, I emailed Wise miser and was sent the ticket by post. No bother whatsoever… Read Full Review

“wise meiser”

Written on: 17/03/2013 by ominkin (1 review written)

Phoned up to book flights and was told I would get a phone call back with a quote. After waiting hours I phoned back to be quoted a price nearly double the price on the net?! When I questioned this he was really rude and told me to go book some where else then. The prices on the website are apparently nothing to reflect the actual prices as they are "subject to availability." So they just put low prices to tempt you into phoning. I was shocked at the way I was spoken to. Really shocking… Read Full Review

“Was told to 'get lost'”

Written on: 13/03/2013

Called up late at night, was informed of one price and when I called back 5 minutes later was told that price wasn't available anymore. Spoke to [name removed] who was very rude, very pushy and outright lied when I asked if I would have to give card details before I received flight confirmation. I asked if there was any guarantee on them and he laughed. Just before it came to giving my card details I did a quick review check on this website and told him I'd call him back in the morning, at… Read Full Review

I thought at the start the service was reasonable when booking. But during the Booking I was asking all questions on Can I change my flight at a later stage, I was informed that this could be possible. When I went to change my return flight via e-mail to 2 different sales personal the e-mail was ignored and also was informed that they hadn't received it but he later found it and repeated the whole e-mail. Then re-asked what I wanted to do. I had to ring up and speak with them to change my… Read Full Review
