“worst experience”

Written on: 27/05/2014 by LindaMacDonald (1 review written)

Very bad experience with thomas cook on Europe fusion trip. No proper Indian food provide as said, no proper guidance given, no proper hotels given. Very annoying service and feedback from tour manager. Sadly we ver given separate beds room on our honeymoon. 11 days trip it's hardly 7 days that u actually see. No proper time for shopping is given and no call is given before leaving the tourist point irrespective u able to to reach or not. It would be better to go with some other travel… Read Full Review

“Welfare Dept - joke!!!”

Written on: 20/05/2014 by Taniak1983 (1 review written)

My son has coeliac, when trying to book our holiday in store the staff member phoned the welfare dept to ask them to contact the hotel to see if they could cater for him, the welfare dept said they only dealt with medical needs (coeliac is a medical condition) and that he should tell us to email the hotel - why should we be made to pay £3000 for a holiday and have to do this ourselves, the money paid covers the cost of Thomas Cooks service, so what exactly are we paying for, and before you say… Read Full Review

“Service or employees are Dramatic”

Written on: 14/05/2014

I spoke to a customer care executive who took my details and told me that they would send all details. But then there was no response. I called them up again and then they gave me a contact who works in the local office. But again when I called up this person he/she said they would return back and again no response. Again I had to call them up and this time, it was heights : The person pretended as though he/she cannot hear my voice. The actual reason was that they did not have any… Read Full Review

“Avoid like a plague”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by Kailas244 (1 review written)

Booked Holiday with Thomas Cook for Disneyland Paris, after they received our final payment (in March for Holiday in June 2014) They have still not upon repeated requests sent us e tickets, Disneyland paris park tickets, details of airport transfers. They do not respond to emails on time unless you threaten to complain to HMRC for not issuing the invoices / payment receipts. Avoid this company like a plague. I will now contact trading standards to take the matter further… Read Full Review

“Flight change at last minute”

Written on: 28/03/2014 by Follywood (1 review written)

We arrived at Gatwick South Terminal with plenty of time. After waiting at the check in desk were told we were not booked onto our flight TCX1638 to Hurghada as stated on our ticket. We were asked to stand to the side like two naughty children, and after several frantic phones calls with two different supervisors we were told we were flying with Thomsons and should be at the north terminal. We found this very stressful as we had never flown via the North Terminal before. We then had to get… Read Full Review

“Fantastic China Trip”

Written on: 28/02/2014 by ldFox309 (1 review written)

Tour organized by Thomas cook was great. They received us at the airport and took us around in comfortable coaches. The tour guides were very fluent with languages and could communicate well with all of us. The tour was well planned and we explored most of china Japan and Hong Kong. The hotels were beautiful, and they provided me with veg food which I am very grateful for. Great wall of china was breathtaking! I loved the visit to hong kong Especially the Ocean park and Aberdeen Harbour. The… Read Full Review

“There not very good ”

Written on: 24/02/2014 by Limak72 (1 review written)

Just returned from turkey this is the 2nd time I have flown with thomas cook now and to be honest for what they charge I dont think there very good! Check in going out was smooth enough although it did take quite a while to board and we did take off slightly later than anticipated. Waiting for our luggage to come round was absolutely ridiculous; it took over an hour which is completely unacceptable!!! Coming back was outrageous! An hour and 20 minutes it took to check us in I have never… Read Full Review

“Expensive Cattle Market”

Written on: 20/02/2014 by Yari-Red (2 reviews written)

We travelled with Thomas Cook, the route being new to this airline. This was to be a 10hr flight, as the journey outward was via Antigua. On board this flight we presumed the drinks would have been included in the price of the holiday as with Virgin, however we were astonished when the drinks/snacks trolley came round & we were expected to pay the extortionate prices they charge on board!! The in-flight entertainment was very poor with only a handful of very old programmes to watch & the films… Read Full Review

“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
