Written on: 21/03/2014 by MitchellSloan459 (1 review written)

Please do not even bother calling people like Happy journeys.

This company should be investigated by the office of fair trading as this amounts to seriously false advertisng and needs Stopping,I dont know how they can… Read Full Review

“Terrible do not whatever you do book with these people”

Written on: 18/03/2014 by 92Egan (1 review written)

Just tried to book a holiday with this company. Spent 40 minutes on the line, thought I had paid a deposit and all details exchanged. Then they called me back and said this holiday no longer available, and offered me a poorer quality hotel for the same price. They are unable to deliver what they say they can. Wish I had read the reviews first as I feel misled and taken in now. WHATEVER YOU DO AVOID THIS COMPANY … Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2014

Everytime you call them the price goes up and up and up. They add things in a stupid manner swindling you out of as much money as they can. NEVER book with the Holiday Discount Centre as you'll end up paying more or the same as most other properly advertised holidays. They add booking fees several times They over charge for baggage They NEVER state the price it's advertised for DO NOT BOOK WITH THE Holiday Discount Centre… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/02/2014 by Mandy1964 (1 review written)

On holiday discount centre I saw a holiday to Portugal advertised with hot deals for you at just £146 . Great so I phoned to book. They then gave me a total price of £203 for the five days all inclusive. Double checked that included everything. Yes they said. Took the booking and then there was baggage, transfers, ok I said then he said the rooms were very basic but for and extra £28 each we could have an upgrade, finding out what he said was the basic room we paid the extra. Did it stop… Read Full Review

“Excellent and cheap”

Written on: 17/01/2014 by Joneshaf (1 review written)

I have used this company twice and plan to use them again this summer. The first time I booked it was for a family holiday and I was a bit weary, wanting to make sure the transfer etc was ok. Had no problems whatsoever. You pay for what you get and as a family we saved £500 by booking with Holiday Discount Centre. Well done and thanks… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2014 by ballickybill (1 review written)

Went on phone to book a holiday in Lanzarote. By the time he had finished with all his add ons, a cheap holiday that was advertised for less than £600 was costing £700 and that was not including transfers. Baggage for one was £48. Then once he had taken payment said the room we booked was sold and that we would have had to pay another £60 for an apartment.He then said he would put us up in another hotel. I refused and he then informed me it was too late as he booked the flights and only… Read Full Review

“maybe I was lucky”

Written on: 12/01/2014

I booked a holiday to majorca to get a bit of winter sun. The price was what was advertised. If I had booked a few days earlier when I enquired first, I could have got it for cheaper and half board but I waited a few days and the price increased. I was dubious but all was fine. It was very quiet as off season but I expected that and was happy with service. … Read Full Review

You should not believe all reviews on any sites becaue competitor sites write derogatory comments. Use your own judgement. You cannot say anything until you have actually phoned them yourself.

They get your bank details before telling you all the extra add ons. Dishonest really, isn't it?

No-one gets this much bad feedback, unless they really are THIS bad! After reading all these terrible reviews, I'll be staying well clear.

Just booked a trip to Barcelona. First,tried to phone and got connected but each time was hung up on and they called back,they then hung up. This was repeated several times and I now found out that every call I made cost £1.50 per minute. Was this a deliberate ploy? be aware. Then I booked my holiday and was called back to change the departure airport. I was also landed with an extra £18 per person abta guarantee which was slipped in at the end of the call.

“big waste of time!”

Written on: 14/11/2013 by zed82 (1 review written)

Like other reviews I've read, this company is a complete joke. Agreed a price on a holiday to Egypt after nearly 2 hrs on the phone, took all my details, added all the extras I.e baggage, transfers, admin fees, gave me full details of the holiday,flights,hotel and check in details and even put me through to the automated terms and conditions message. 20 mins later received a call yo say the flights have gone up by 150. Now when you think you've booked a holiday and that's the end of it, this… Read Full Review

Hello,

I am very sorry for the problems you have experienced with an advertiser featured on our site.

We appreciate your feedback and take all advice into consideration when reviewing our services.

Holiday Discount Centre is a price comparison site, therefore bookings are made directly with the advertiser rather than the website. However we do conduct mystery calls to ensure that our advertisers are offering holidays within their price ranges.

If you know the name of the advertiser that you called and other information relating to this enquiry please email me with all details. Once received I will pass this onto their management team for investigation.

“Holiday Discount Centre - Lets mess you about instead...”

Written on: 10/11/2013 by tazzz111 (1 review written)

Absolute waste - I do not recommend at all. Cheap price, yeah right. After several phone calls, I lost the will to live. Saw a holiday to morocco half board 7 nights and flights. After like 15 mins on the phone do they tell you about an unexpected booking fee, then a fee to check in (£50 at the airport of £15 online). Baggage also extra - throughout the calls I had prices ranging from £40-£60 for a 20kg, and being offered a 15kg option for £40 then on another call saying 15kg didn't… Read Full Review

Hello,

I'm sorry you have experienced problems with an advertiser featured on our site, and I'm keen to get the bottom of this for you.

As Holiday Discount Centre are a price comparison site based in Newcastle - bookings are made with the advertiser rather than the website.

I can not comment on the procedure used by the advertiser in your case, as we have no access to there phone calls or booking system. But what I can say is that I do not agree with this and would like to take this matter further for you.

However I would like to pass on your full complaint to the management team at hot deal holidays and I would ask for them to respond to you directly. , please email me with your email address and I will send this on for you and also follow this up.

“Rogue discounts on website”

After agreeing to a figure of GBP 656.00 for two gave the operator all my card details. Once he had all my details, he said that it would be 807.94. I told him to cancel it. It was worrying and I had talked to the Bank, and they replaced my card. Horrible experience. This sort of agents should be reported and shut down… Read Full Review

“Possibly would recommend.”

Written on: 04/11/2013

Girl i spoke to was very nice but had put insufficient postage on my documents which meant they didnt arrive in time for us going. I had to go to library and pay to get them faxed. Got them when we came back by paying the extra postage and a surcharge at post office. The transfer company they use for Eurodisney has no English speaking drivers. We waited 50 mins for driver on way there. One of the seatbelts didnt work so i had to sit with my 2 year old on my lap. The driver also spoke and… Read Full Review

I booked via this site and thought it very good, I read some not good reviews after I booked! which caused me to have a sleepless night worrying if I had made a mistake. No need I checked this morning and all is as we wished no extra's to pay other than a case which was advised at the time of booking. the customer care team who take over after the initial booking next day were very helpful and confirmed everything even phoned the airline to check on a question and called me back immediately.

I saw a holiday on their website, for 275 and rang them to enquire further. They told me that it includs flight and bed and brakefast accomodation as advertised. If I ned transfer, it would be 20 per head. Fair enough 295 each, and 590. when it came to booking, they added on about 110 making a grand total of 700. This being debit card fees, bording card admin fees etc. When I told him that I do not want to book this, he was very nasty. This sort of companies shoud be baned by the… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/09/2013

I phoned up asking for a quote which the gave and said they have to Check to see if I can use my card, which I presumed was a credit check and they would phone back in 20 minutes. Once they phoned back they said I would have add ons which came to 600 extra for 4 people. I obviously said I will leave it and they said 'we are going to take it anyway'. I stated that I had never agreed to anything and they should check the call, I was then verbally abused before they tried to take the money out… Read Full Review
