“Family flights to Asia”

Written on: 29/10/2013

After much trawling on the internet, I called Holiday Genie to compare costs for different routing options. Allen was extremely helpful and courteous, hearing our requirements for travelling with an infant. His advice (which London terminal is best for taxes) and quick searching of the options made for a pain free booking experience. The service was not pushy, but customer focused. Equally important, the flight was the cheapest I was being offered from a number of This is the second long… Read Full Review

“Flight Booking to Japan”

I recently booked a flight to Japan through Allen at Holiday Genie. I was extremely happy with the service provided, every effort was made to accommodate the requirements for my flight times and the resulting price was better than I found anywhere else online. Dave… Read Full Review

“magical holiday - magical experience”

Written on: 24/10/2013 by jadebeaverstock (1 review written)

This was my second holiday to Florida booked through holiday Genie, and can genuinelly say I was delighted with the experience! Holiday Genie contacted me and my fiance shortly after we had booked the holiday and told us we could upgrade at no extra cost to a better hotel, they also put no pressure on us to do this and even told us to look the hotels up online and decide which one we preferred and get back to them. We agreed with them and changed our hotel to the Ramada Gateway resort. Holiday… Read Full Review

“TERRIBLE AFTER SALES SERVICE”

Written on: 22/10/2013 by oxyjohn (2 reviews written)

The company where great right up until I fully paid for my holiday and then they were terrible. They don't return calls and don't reply to emails. i keep getting referred to the original person who took my original call and no one else will help. i booked an extra person on our trip, which cost in total £4880! so you'd expect them to look after me, and they took my money and 2 months later i still don't have the e-ticket for the extra person. i call almost daily and still get the brush off, or… Read Full Review

Yes, I know how you feel. Try one of the no win no fee companies who may sort it out for you. I have similar experience with this company, trying to get someone to answer a query is impossible you just get shoved from one dept to another - customer 'services' - what an inappropriate title for that dept. Accounts - hu! Bookings - hu! They are happy to take your money and then you can't get a reply from them at all. Utter disgrace.

“Complete hassle free booking system”

Written on: 16/10/2013 by Matthew100 (1 review written)

This is the first time that I have used Holiday Genie and can honestly say that I am more than happy with the service they provided, and I didn't even have to speak to another human voice! Being a bit of a picky traveler I had certain requirements which was not a problem at all for Holiday Genie. Thank you for your great service, of which I plan to make use of again and more than likely again!! Now I can relax and think about my upcoming trip to California :)… Read Full Review

“No Complaints From Us!!”

Written on: 17/09/2013

Booked a two week 'allocated on arrival' villa for two weeks. Price was excellent and have asked to book again! The in-direct flights went without a glitch and the villa was gorgeous. Our sales representative was helpful, patient and nothing was too much trouble. Villa was as described if not better and the booking system was effortless. I received a nudge when the balance was due and all paperwork arrived via email in plenty of time! Thank you Holidaygenie...looking forward to 2014!… Read Full Review

I had used holiday genie for a previous business trip, so didn't hesitate to look at their web site. the website was easy to use, and once we selected our resort a rep , Their rep immediately emailed me with a further recommendation, of a better resort, at a better price. Once we had paid the deposit we waited until time to pay the balance, when all the e tickets, accommodation details AOL certificates etc were sent. We had friends who booked to the same are, booking flights and… Read Full Review

“Do not keep you informed.”

Written on: 06/09/2013

Terrible agency to book your holiday with. After booking flights with them they did not keep me informed of any changes. My brother, who booked the same flights through Expedia, got regular emails updating him on changes to the flight times. If he hadn't told me of the flight change I wouldn't have found out until check in… Read Full Review

“Decent, not perfect”

Written on: 03/09/2013

Having booked flights with holidaygenie on the back of limited research, I spent 24 hours convinced I'd just blown £500 by reading this site. However, at 8am on Monday morning (well in advance of the 2 working day deadline they set themselves), the e-ticket arrived and everything checked out with the airlines. I was able to make seat reservations with Air Canada over the phone that very morning. However, although I failed to receive my ATOL certificate as I should, I am prepared to believe… Read Full Review

“family holiday to Florida”

Written on: 17/08/2013 by Helenjason (1 review written)

My family and I, after much discussion decided to take the plunge and book our long awaited holiday to Florida. I was recommended Holiday Genie by a work colleague who had booked previous holidays to Florida. I usually book our holidays independently, but I felt totally out of my depth and didn't know where to start when booking the whole 'Disney' thing. Thankfully Mel at Holiday Genie was there to help with absolutely every aspect of our holiday. She basically tailor made our holiday to fit… Read Full Review

“Holiday to New York & Las Vegas”

Written on: 16/08/2013 by Luv2travelaway (2 reviews written)

First I would like to say a big thank you to the advisor. How help us plan this excellent holiday. She came up with some great cost saving ideas. All the flights were great and the hotels. I would have no hesitation in booking with them again. A few ideas if your going ; upgrade your seats if flying with United you get loads of leg room. Save money not staying in Vegas over a weekend. As for New York, try the restaurants on 8th or 9 th Ave. use the subway to get around quicker… Read Full Review

“Simply the worst customer service I have EVER...”

Written on: 06/08/2013 by aurium123 (1 review written)

I booked flights and car hire for a break to Iceland with Holiday Genie. I was happy with the price and duly received confirmation email advising that my documents would be with me in 2 working days and that if they did not arrive I should telephone them. The documents did not arrive so I called them as requested. The call took in excess of 15 extremely stressful minutes. The customer services rep repeatedly asked me for my booking reference even though I told him quite clearly that the… Read Full Review

“Nice Smooth Booking!!!”

Written on: 24/07/2013 by robtefc (1 review written)

Wanted to say thanks for Holiday Genie for setting up what was a wonderful holiday for my family in Florida. All was as expected, great price and even Virgin Atlantic rang to confirm the booking and asked if they could be of more service!!! Booking a day trip to the Kennedy Space was made easy before going, as part of what we wanted from our holiday. The holiday would have been made better if we were advised of bookings things like swimming with the dolphins at Seaworld before going as there… Read Full Review
