“The Price You Paid Then Goes Up”

Written on: 28/01/2014

They are agents who allegedly work on a live system so you would think that when you hit the confirmation button for the holiday, then that would be the price. Well, read their T&C's; they act as agents for third parties, such as 'Ryanair' and Hotels so expect a call within 24 hrs telling you that the price has gone up and when you ask for a refund, they will tell you that you can't have one, because they are only acting as agents for the hotels and airlines. Used to use TR years ago, but looks like they have found a good sales technique. Also, they use their own credit card to pay the third party, (not yours) then charge your card later? Strange system?

Exactly what has happened to us, they put the price and even after I said we would pay the price they put it up again! I ended up booking my own flights because it could well have gone up again. Flight confirmed straight away!
