“Summer vacation in America!”

Written on: 11/02/2014 by rajesh_verma (1 review written)

To make my son’s summer vacations exciting I planned a trip to America with help of Thomas Cook Tour for 14days and 13nights. We decided to go to North America and we boarded the flight to United States of America and from where our journey begins to experience a part of this continent. The things which remind me about this trip are the exciting boat ride to The Statue of Liberty, the ‘Historic City’ - Washington, D.C and last but not the least American Chocolate factory at Hershey’s… Read Full Review

“Steer well clear!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 27/01/2014 by Jarvo1961 (1 review written)

Booked a holiday to Egypt from the local shop with very helpful staff. When the paperwork was received we were warned that some hotel facilities were not available. However, we were not told of other changes, including some that we had paid extra for that the company knew weren't available even when we paid!! I am now in an argument for a refund of the amount that they took from me knowing I would not get the service. The local shop has now closed down and I am dealing with someone who is… Read Full Review

“January Big Cruise Deals”

Written on: 20/01/2014 by alf789 (1 review written)

My wife and I picked up this brochure on 19th Jan and were very interested in the Italy & Croatia Explorer deal on page 10. As pensioners we thought this to be a good deal within our finances. We decided to book this deal and contacted Thomas Cook to do so. We were horrified to be quoted a price of £1209 each from Gatwick. Our hopes were dashed we could not afford this quite apart from the extra cost of travelling to Gatwick. My question is why advertise what you cannot deliver? In future we… Read Full Review

“Absolutely fantastic staff in Horsforth, Leeds”

Written on: 17/11/2013

I have always holidayed with Thomas Cook. My boyfriend and I have booked a few holidays with TC in recent years. On the first two occasions we went on what the agent advised us to book. We told her what we wanted and she suggested a hotel. Everything she told us about the hotel's were true. They were both amazing and in great locations! We booked both of our first holidays with one agent, on two separate occasions. She knew exactly what she was talking about and had a fantastic knowledge of… Read Full Review

“Frustrated and annoyed, I feel like I am being mugged.”

Written on: 16/11/2013

Apart from cancelling one of our bookings completely so that we have had to pay an admin fee to re-instate it, this morning they have informed us that the aircraft that we would have been flying on has changed and as we had pre-booked seats with extra leg room would we like to choose our seats again? Done that but have had to pay for them again, done the live chat thing and got nowhere , actually spoke to a real person who was about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike and still got… Read Full Review

“Shameless Airline”

Written on: 16/11/2013

Flew from London to Orlando. Had to pay for a seat, pay for each bag, yes no luggage allowance, pay for a meal and now comes the hammer. They even tried to charge me for a glass of water. No leg room, arm rests could not be raised. I wish I have had read the reviews before I flew. Pay a hundred more with another airline and you get at least basic service, NEVER AGAIN… Read Full Review

“Couldn't care less! Carnival Ectascy cruise rooms...”

Written on: 10/11/2013

Complained about our recent 5 night Carnival cruise on the Ecstasy to the Bahamas. Our first cruise so we booked the best rooms called Statesroom. Directly above our room was the gym which was used all hours, even when it was supposed to be closed at 8 p.m. Every night we were woken up by Carnival staff using the gym equipment and dropping the weights. There is no after service from either Thomas Cook or Carnival cruises. They couldn't care less! Very poor service! Be careful not to… Read Full Review

“This is the worst experience I've ever had with a company ”

Written on: 07/11/2013 by VeryBadgerBoy (1 review written)

They have the worst customer service team in the world, ever. No replies, no answers and no courtesy - nothing The lady who is supposed to be dealing with me has ignored so many emails I've lost count (it's has been months) Holiday was rubbish as well so I guess I should be grateful that excessive delays and staff incompetence meant we missed a big chunk of it. Never use!… Read Full Review

“Flight times changed to late night flight and bad service”

Written on: 25/10/2013 by cottingham (2 reviews written)

I booked with Thomas Cook as their flight times fitted my needs. I have now been informed that they have changed the flight times to arrive well after midnight. The flight change notification gave a high cost 0871 number to phone to discus options if you were not happy with the change. I phoned this number and after waiting in a queue for over 15 minutes I was just quoted the T$Cs that allowed a 7 hour flight time change without any compensation or cancellation rights. I will not recommend or… Read Full Review

“You're not going to believe it!”

Written on: 26/09/2013 by bobbyj (6 reviews written)

Thomas Cook sent us 2 tickets - the 1st was wrong. We arrived at the airport 3 hours early only to be told our flight had departed. Thomas Cook told us they had sent the amended ticket and they denied any responsibility and deserted us at the airport. Despite being pensioners and celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary and with one of us becoming extremely distressed Thomas Cook couldn't have cared less and continually repeated they had sent us the amended ticket and stated what we did was down… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time Complaining to Thomas Cook. ”

Written on: 24/09/2013 by Stevekz007 (5 reviews written)

Try to book a 'deal' online and watch the price rise by the time you get to the payment page. Then waste your life having to call their Premium rate number to be told we couldn't get the same price; as that price was for online bookings only. Even after explaining to the minimum wage drone that it couldn't be booked online you get 'stiffed' into paying the higher price! Then a lousy holiday anyway for all the usual reasons. I thought I'd vent my anger and frustration articulately on their online… Read Full Review
