“I needed to book last minute flights to Nepal,...”

Written on: 28/10/2010

I needed to book last minute flights to Nepal, Southall Travel came up with the cheapest price on Air India.

I was a bit concerned as I saw a few negative reviews on this review website. Anyway, I decided to buy from Southall Travel.

My booking was taken by the very courteous and professional Mona, and I'd recommend anyone else booking tickets to ask to speak with her. She even gave me her direct line in case I need to chat about my flights.

24 hours later, my eticket has arrived and its… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/10/2010

Booked a flight for my wife to mumbai. As per southall and the email we received from them, my wife was allowed 1 inbound change free of charge.
However, when we wanted to amend the date by a few days, we were charged equivalent of £100 in Indian rupees. Air India advised us to take it up with southall travels as there was no way inbound change would be free of charge and there was no remarks on the booking to say so.
When we flew back, we tried to speak to people with all nicknames who were… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2010

My experience of Southall Travel has been fine so far, I booked flights to India last week, I recieved the acknowledgement email straight away, and the e-tickets within 24 hrs as promised at the stated price.
I booked with this agent because they were reccomended by a friend who has used them previously without any problems.
I will post an updated review after my trip!!

Written on: 22/08/2010

Here is a copy of a email I have sent this company about their service:

...I am tired of emailing and being ignored. I have even phoned and been given the run around several times. I will be complaining to my bank to get a refund of my deposit and booking my flights through someone else. I am disgusted by the appalling service I have received by you and Southall Travel...


My advice...stay away!!!

Written on: 19/08/2010

we booked 2 return flights to capetown in september 2009 to travel in February 2010

in november 2009 we tried to book our seats and realised that we had been given the wrong return date

we contacted them and they made us pay an extra £250 each, total £500, to get the date that we thought we had already booked for the return flight

after protracted letters, we learnt, from the carrier not the agent that the airlines cost was £300, leaving £200 for the agent, on checking their own online… Read Full Review

Everyone stay well away from this company, booked a holiday early 2010 to Dubai using my visa debit to pay deposit, due to personal circumstances i cancelled the holiday 30th April and informed the company via 1st class royal mail recorded delivery as per instructions. Nothing then heard from company, correspondence, letters, e-mails, calls, tickets or anything so presumed everything was okay, apart from losing my initial deposit.
The day before departure, 28th July fgound two seperate… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2010

I have spent so much time today trying to book an advertised trip to New York for Christmas shopping. This afternoon I was promised a call back in 5 minutes and 6 hours later I am still waiting. I searched the same trip again and found the same price, called again tonight and am told the price is nearly £200 more than advertised on their travel supamartket web site. This is an 0844 number and it took forever with me on hold to tell me the cost would be £200 more. If I ever see the name… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/07/2010

Southall travel are alot better then alot of smaller agencies out there.
I've used them for my last 5 travels to Bangkok. Everytime they have been spot on.
Those that have problems may have just been unlucky. But what I suggest is that you should make it a habit of following things and documenting things.
I've booked my latest ticket to bangkok from southall travel and negotiated a deal £50 cheaper then quoted on the website.
If there is any negative i can draw is that try to avoid booking… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/07/2010

In my opinion and based on my experiences and the evidence to back my claims, I believe this company needs to improve significantly. While the agents all appear to be knowledgeable, some have tended to be unhelpful and occasionally brash with me. In my opinion and from my experience, they are forward in terms of reminding you about payments due but backward when dealing with the issue of refunds - even if they themselves have already agreed to a refund. I doubt very much that I will be using… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2010 by Mr PhommalyHatton (3 reviews written)

they took £192 for my daughters fare, I called EVA air to check the reservation and they had NO record of this also I was told my daughter would not have either a seat or a basinette because she was over 8 months old and too big - none of this was explained to me but they had her age details for her ticket so they were fully aware of this, they just took the money and said nothing. I have tried to complain but they wont give you their names - just nick names. I received no invoice either from… Read Full Review

I booked tickets to America late last night. Searching through travelsupermarket for the best deal, Southhall travel were the cheapest. As soon as i booked them someone from customer service rang me immediately to let me know what would happen next and when i would receive the e-tickets. The following day the e-tickets were there and after reading some of the comments on here i thought i had better check with the airline directly, and they had all our booking details and i could then check my… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2010

This has to be the worst travel agency ever in UK. I feel they have rude advisors and all they want is short term benefit and quick sale. I would recommend every one not to buy tickets from southall travels ever even if they offer you the cheapest price. End of the day, they are in the service industry and they know nothing about service.DO NOT EVEN THINK OF TRYING SOUTHALL… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2010

I have used Southall Travel on 4 separate occasions to book tickets to India and they are always the cheapest, and never any problems. That's probably because I've only had to deal with the website and not had to call them!

However, more recently (September 2009) I used them to book a holiday to Dubai and they were just awful. I was very stressed right up until the day I was leaving! I called them up to book the holiday over the phone, only to find that the price and offer I saw online was no… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2010

In my opinion, AWFUL COMPANY. DO NOT USE IF YOU CAN HELP IT. I booked through them for my emigration to Australia. Compnay intially bugged me when i was thinking about deals even ringing me at 11pm yes 2300 hours. Once deposit was paid they no longer replied to emails or phone calls. Customer service is horrendus. Use Dial a Flight or a similar company if you can or dont be as tight as i was. Extra few quid is worth it rather than using this company. The stress of a vacation is bad enough… Read Full Review
