“No Customer Support or Focus”

Written on: 16/02/2016 by myov02afj (1 review written)

My daughter and her boyfriend booked a trip to Venice to celebrate her 21st birthday. Two weeks ahead of time they needed to move the trip by one day and accepted the £168 extra cost. The department they were talking to couldn't take the payment and said they would get a call. For the next 8 days we called everyday (sometimes several times a day) to be told that a request would be made to the relevant department to call back and take the payment. The problem could not be escalated and no one… Read Full Review

“They spelled a name wrong when booking and its my problem!”

Written on: 03/02/2016 by nmeharg (2 reviews written)

Wow....DO NOT CALL TO BOOK ANYTHING..the staff that answer do not speak or understand English properly! Its unbelievable! The booking staff spelled my daughter's name wrong on the booking. (omitting a letter of a common name which makes it so obviously NOT a name) So now i have an unchangeable ticket that i have paid for that has the wrong name on it. Despite repeated phone calls to point out that the error is 100% their fault (again trying to make myself understood was hard work) I… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE”

Written on: 22/01/2016 by ollipug (1 review written)

I made a booking by telephone for 6 adults travelling to Las Vegas for a flight and hotel package. I was on the phone for a good 45 minutes, gave my credit card details and thought great ... holiday booked. The operator assured me an email would be sent confirming my booking. The next day i still had received no such email. I rang them and spoke to an operator who checked my booking and told me although the hotel had been confirmed the flight hadn't ???? I explained as far as I was… Read Full Review

I had something similar I booked a hotel and they never sent me a confirmation email when I turned up there was no booking and I ended up having to pay significantly more as I had no choice. Last minute still took the money ( over 6 thousand dollars) from my credit card and only paid it back over a week later after several phone calls to their India call centre. I still lost money on the return exchange rate and bank charges plus spent half our holiday and hundreds of dollars on the phone to India. They have never responded to any emails. I would NEVER use them again and neither will anyone else I come I contact with

“Never Again - Virtual Flights Sold”

Written on: 22/01/2016 by johnjbaker (6 reviews written)

I just booked a flight to Mombasa via Lastminute. Everything went well online and the money was taken. The confirmation email was received immediately - but from BravoFly, not Lastminute (same set of people cowboys it would seem )However, after a few hours, they emailed me to say the flight was no longer available. ( It was still being sold on their website however many hours later). They offered me an alternative at £110 more. Unfortunately the alternative was similar only in that it flew on… Read Full Review

Update: I gave them another try - only because of the really low prices and my money had been returned very quickly. This time, same dates nearly the same timings but KLM/Kenya Airways Flights rather than Emirates. Everything went very smoothly, and within a few seconds of payment, my confirmation /etickets were in my inbox. So on that basis, 5*.

Written on: 10/06/2016

Hi, I did not do anything different. I suspect that the problem was with Emirates. I have since booked 3 further KLM/Kenya Airways flights with Lastminute and had no problems at all. In fact they have been on the ball when the airlines have made flight time adjustments too. I also had to contact Customer Service , got straight through and got an answer immediately. At least on the first occasion, my money was returned rapidly. I had a similar problem with Opodo and it took 14 weeks to get my money back.

“Awful Customer Service”

Written on: 21/01/2016 by Torres209 (1 review written)

I booked a short break and spelt one of the passenger names wrong and when I phoned to see if I could correct this I was told I could at a cost of £120! Rather than risk my fellow passenger not getting on the plane I agreed to pay the fee. This was 2 weeks before the flight was due to take off I then spent 2 weeks waiting on the name change being done phoning twice a day as I received no correspondence at all in the 2 weeks apart from my initial e-mail from them saying someone would be in… Read Full Review

I booked a flight to Spain, Barcelona, and a hotel for 4 nights via lastminute.com.

“Lastminute.com - Shocking!”

Written on: 08/12/2015 by Hokken (1 review written)

I am not exactly IT illiterate, I have been a web developer for 15 years but I am human and humans do make mistake occasionally. Yesterday, I unfortunately did 2 mistakes, the first one was to decide to book a hotel on lastminute.com, the second one was to enter the wrong dates for my booking, it never happened before. As a normal human being I just thought that just calling them to amend the dates would fix the situation, I was very wrong, I had no clue about the type of people I was… Read Full Review

“never again”

Written on: 08/12/2015 by chrisb28 (1 review written)

Booked a hotel in Ely and arrived to find it closed for refurbishment despite only booking three days previous. Lastminute.com left us waiting while they tried to find alternative accommodation for 2 hours before we took it on ourselves to find an alternative. We found another hotel that was slightly more expensive and when we suggested this to lm.com they wouldn't agree to letting us stay there. We booked it anyway and paid for it. Terrible customer service, will never use again… Read Full Review

“NEVER USE LAST MINUTE ”

Written on: 26/11/2015 by Chloex1973 (1 review written)

I think last minute are an utter disgrace. I booked for me and my daughter to go to disneyland paris on Friday 13th November 2015. Due to the unfortunate and horrible things that unfolded that night disneyland closed down for our entire trip after promising it'd be open the next day (sunday). When we woke Sunday we were told it was then closed until Wednesday and we're due home on Monday night. With the whole of Paris in a state of panic last minute didn't have 1 single holiday rep at the park… Read Full Review

I was put from person to person whilst trying to amend a booking, I finally got through to a lady with awful reception (could barely hear her or understand her) and she then told me to ring the hotel which I did, of course the hotel can't amend bookings, it has to be done through lastminute.com. When I finally got hold of someone again at lastminute.com they told me that lastminute.com customer services has shut!! I had to lose a booking and rebook another hotel. I wasted hours trying and… Read Full Review

“Lastminute.com Shambles”

Written on: 13/11/2015 by 316Mooney (1 review written)

I have used Lastminute a few times and when everything goes right it's great. Be aware though as soon as things go wrong and you need a degree of assistance then you might as well wave your money goodbye. My scenario I was abroad on what was supposed to be a holiday of a lifetime. Sadly my partners father became terminally ill and we had to return to the UK early. Having spoken to my travel insurance agent I was informed that I should contact my flight provider to see if they could fetch my… Read Full Review

I made a reservation on Wednesday the confirmed leg was different to what I had requested, never the less I had bought full flex, I called customer services on 7 occasions and was assured someone would call back and make the change for me, this never materialized, when someone finally got in touch on Friday they gave me a deadline to confirm that I wanted to cancel my trip, when all along all I wanted to do was change my ticket, they finally got back to me to confirm I couldn't use the full… Read Full Review

“An unprofessional mess”

Written on: 01/11/2015 by TannerHarding (1 review written)

We attempted to book a trip to Dublin and found reasonable flights on Lastminute.com. After 24 hours, still no confirmation email. We suspected an issue with the tickets, so attempted to call the company to find out if there was an issue. We were redirected and then immediately cut off. Further calls were also cut off after waiting on hold. We were obviously anxious to get the booking sorted out as we'd arranged accommodation. Eventually, an email was sent. Surprise, surprise, the original… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2015 by garrya75 (2 reviews written)

I booked a cheap flight via lastminute.com. I can't afford expensive flights so I picked a cheaper deal but because of unforeseen circumstances I needed to modify my booking. First I contacted them to find out what I could do and they mentioned a sort of high price which I could not believe. Then I spoke to KLM just to make sure the information given by lastminute.com was correct. But of course it wasn't. I contacted them again to find out how I could make changes of my 414 pounds ticket. They… Read Full Review

Garrya75's Response to garrya75's Review

Written on: 16/09/2015

A new development in the case that I am trying to get my ticket cancelled and according to this knowledgeable lastminute the airport taxes are not refundable. haha. I explained them that they are refundable as they are taxes paid just after passengers got on board. The taxes are paid to the local government. If passengers don't fly they are entitled to claim all the taxes back. But lastminute won't let me claim it. A link to prove that taxes are refundable.
Companies like lastminute should not be allowed to operate as they are tricking people who spend their hard-earned money.

Garrya75's Response to garrya75's Review

Written on: 17/09/2015

A new development is that when I talk to them they hang up and later they say the line disconnected. I wanted to change my flight date and now the 543 pound flight which is displayed on their website is offered for me for 800 pounds. They say KLM gives them this price. I asked them to write this down in an e-mail to make sure I have evidence of it he sends me an almost empty e-mail with lots of evasive answers. When I ask why he doesn't answer he hangs up. This guy was Sherman from lastminute.com and he is rather unhelpful. A few days ago they told me I would get 80 pounds back but today they say I must pay a 100 pounds if I want to cancel. Really? This can't be true. Jokers.
