“I am reading past reviews which are making me v....”

Written on: 17/07/2009

I am reading past reviews which are making me v. depressed! I have tried for 2 days to get through to T. Cook, via various telephone nos., email., customer services, customer relations - the customer services no. has a very long message only to be told at the end of it to call back later, or finally when I got through I was no. 30 in the list of callers. All I want to know is how I check in 2 guitars on a flight that I am going on next week. Looking at past reviews it may not be necessary… Read Full Review

The easiest thing to do is ring the airport you are flying from and ask to be put through to the Thomas Cook desk.

Written on: 15/07/2009

We booked two weeks holiday in August to Cyprus through Thomas cook website, we paid the full quoted price by Credit card, 5 days later we received a receipt through post, which is totally aiffernt price and demanding for extra £1436. I have been facing lots of problem with their customer service and web support, very rude and no support what so ever. I have been told it would take more then 14 days to find out what went wrong. I have faxed them the booking confirmation that we printed out, the… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2009

Thomas Cook are simply the worst airline I have ever flown with, and I have flown Aeroflot!!!!! (the company with the worst crash record in history and are the considered as one of the worst airlines in the world). Thomas Cook made them look like a private first class jet.

We had a total of 10 hours of delays on our trip to Turkey!! and the staff were so rude about it, not one apology and they don't even care. Seriously do not book TC, Easyjet etc are actually much much better.

Thomas Cook, I… Read Full Review

I agree with this review because...this was our experience on leaving Turkey, late May. Thomas Cook got everyone to airport several hours before flight time - one couple even five hours beforehand - No apologies proferred.

“Won't be using Thomas Cook again as they changed our...”

Written on: 13/07/2009

Won't be using Thomas Cook again as they changed our flight times 3 times. We started off booking a 10.00am flight then it was changed to 11.00am. This wasn't so bad but they also changed the return flight from 15.05 to 16.25 which meant we vacated our villa at 10.00am in the morning and had to try and kill even more time before we left for the airport. This is difficult when you have a very painful and debilitating condition in your legs like i have. They changed the flight time again 2 weeks… Read Full Review

My family and I stayed at the Isla Paraiso in June 2009 for 14 nights. Contrary to previous reports of the reps disappearing or just not being around. My Thomas Cook rep was available as scheduled. Although the acutal holiday did not meet my expectations she gave me and my family some very good ideas for keeping us occupied… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/07/2009 by chumble (1 review written)

I recently dislocated my knee on a Thomas Cook flight to Kos. My leg became trapped under the seat in fron of me due to the total lack of space. The plane was diverted to Manchester so I could receiev urgent medical attantion. Following my treatment, the airline refused to allow me to fly the next day, and left my wife and I stranded 150 miles away from home in Manchester airport. They refused to help us get home, despite the injury I'd suffered on board their aircraft. My advice to all is… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2009

We haven't even been on our holiday yet with Thomas Cook, and all ready we have had the worst customer service ever experienced. We've booked a cruise with them on an NCL cruise. Thomas Cook have failed from start to finish to face up to their responsibilities as an ABTA registered travel agent. NCL haven't been too good at responding either. We have contacted Thomas Cook's supposed customer service line countless times, to either be lied too, patronised or in one particular case shouted at! We… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/06/2009 by cornwall09 (1 review written)

Party of 5 at the Royal Alba Hotel Colakli Turkey 9 Jun to 23 Jun 2009.
Where to start and what to say with the limited space available, here goes.
Wow factor of 110%. A well run and presented hotel. Should be 5*+
On arrival we were greeted by very helpful reception and porter service who after checking our booking escorted us to our rooms on the ground floor. The rooms were perfect with everything ready and extremely well presented. Having arrived in the early hours, food was available but… Read Full Review

I have a dispute going on at the moment with Thomas Cook as they have informed me of building work taking place next to our hotel. I have been told that I can change my holiday to another accomadation or destination or have a full refund, TC told me this on Friday, I have called them today and they now tell me the opposite and insist I have been wrongly informed, we have spent hours researching other options and decided on Turkey as we found a hotel with reviews as good as the one we had booked… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/06/2009

Thomas Cook have no right to claim they have a customer services department!. When you eventually get through to someone - and that can take a long time - they are arrogant, ignorant and totally unhelpfull. I have been blatantly lied to by members of their staff in an attempt to get me to drop my claim. As an example of the lies they have been telling I received a letter saying that they didn't have a contract with hotel at the time I was in resort. I complain and all of a sudden they don't… Read Full Review

I tried for over an hour to pay the balance on my Thomas Cook holiday using the telephone numbers on the letter, only to be left on hold .. or for the other end to 'clear' the line!!

I guess they want everyone to default on their balance in order to cancel and resell the holidays ... pocketing the already paid balance to boot

there are lots of choice words I could use about the so-called customer service, but I won't

Written on: 03/06/2009

This is the first and absolute last time I book something through Thomas Cook. I'm due to go to my stag do in Prague on the 17th June and booked through them for (what I stupidly believed) convenience. The tickets came through but one of the passenger names was incorrect. Not our fault I might add, as we gave all the correct info at the time of the booking and by their own admission his details were correct on everything else. So far I have gone to their local branch 5 times to try and get it… Read Full Review

Where do I start, although we had a slight delay due to still loading on cargo, we arrived at Pueto Plata on time. On our return journey we were due depart 30 minutes earlier, but again through no fault of Thomas Cook we did not depart until the scheduled time and again made up for this by arriving half an hour earlier. The cabin staff were attentive on both flights and as for the meals they were better than I have experienced before. Love the seat back TV and the pilot actually switched the… Read Full Review

I have spent many a lovely holiday via Thomas cook, but it is always OK until you want something else! after paying for a flydrive back in August 08, I saw a holiday including accomodation for just 380.00 I tried to amend my booking and spent 5 hours over 3 nights on the phone being put through to various unhelpful Departments, and then being cut off at 8pm. I was even told i would have to cancel my booking and lose 90% of my money just to get the alternative holiday, to include accomodation!!… Read Full Review

WARNING: 16 HOUR DELAY AND THEY COULD NOT CARE LESS

Thomas Cook flight to Las Palmas was delayed several times at intervals of half an hour before announcing that our flight would not leave until the next morning at 7.00am. We were accommodated at an airport hotel for a few hours, to leave at 5.00am. This then changed to 7.00am for a 9.15am departure, which a TC member of staff described as being a positive as it meant "an longer lie-in for us". Having had very little sleep, all the passengers… Read Full Review
