“Travel republic really got the extra mile in customer...”

Written on: 18/02/2011 by Steven999 (1 review written)

Travel republic really got the extra mile in customer service, if you have a query thay reply very quickly through telehone support or email, They provide fantastic value for money and amzing discounts rather than going to hotels direct the savings can be over 50%, my personal choice is dont book untill you give these guys a go, we have used them on many occasions and always comes up trumps.
on personal note this is a massive thank you to all the staff at Travel Republic for many years… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

Although I have booked holidays with this site several times with no problem, when things do go wrong their customer service is shocking. Every query has to be raised via a customer service request which takes several days for them to complete. When you are awaiting an answer this is very frustrating… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

I tried to book a Hotel in Dublin with Travel Republic and got an email saying I should have confirmation wihin 12 hours. I hadnt heard so phoned them only to be told to give it another 24 hours as they were still waiting to hear from the Hotel. After 24 hours I had still heard nothing so phoned again to cancel as I needed to try to get another Hotel booked and was told it would have to go to the Admin Dept and they would phone me back. As I guessed, no phone call so I made another and was told… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2011

Absolutely unbelievable. Rip you off at every chance and far more expensive than booking directly. Would advise everyone to steer well clear. Never known so many hidden charges. Ended up paying double the price for one night away. Was told they match online quotes but when I challenged them I was just fobbed off with another excuse… Read Full Review

Travel Republic charged me an extra 2.5% for paying by credit card athough this was not visible before commiting to pay (if it was on screen, it was not prominent). I asked them to explain and advise whether there was a charge for paying by credit card. They 'closed' my customer service query without answering. Avoid… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

TravelRepublic are operating illegally. They add costs to your bookings all over the place including adding credit card charges without informing the customer and charging huge cancellation fee's even if the hotel will charge them nothing and you book for next year.

We cancelled a booking that wasnt due for 7 months, the hotel charged the company travelrepublic nothing, but we had to pay 20%, (over £150) for "cancellation charges".

It may look like this company have good prices, but they are… Read Full Review

TRAVEL REPUBLIC - RUIN HOLIDAYS. A party of 23, (10 adults and 13 children) have booked a holiday with Travel Republic for one week in April. They have just notified us changing our flight from a reasonable daytime flight which cost £250 per person to a flight that now lands in Turkey at 3.25am and then a week later back into Gatwick at 4.30am. We would not have chosen these flights from their long list of options, even if they were free. Apparently, they have this accounted for this in… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2011

We have just returned from a holiday booked via Travel Republic. I was a little concerned having read other reviews. I'm pleased to say that everything went very smoothly. This company gave the cheapest quote and we weren't disappointed at all. We arranged transfers as well through TR and flights and again all went well. I would book through them again.

Please note however that if anything does go wrong, because you are booking via an agent, I don't think that you will be able to rely… Read Full Review

“An awful company! ”

Written on: 25/01/2011

An awful company!

The proof of the standard of any company isn't seen when everything runs smoothly. The proof is seen when things go wrong and in this respect these criminals are sorely lacking. Our problem was with an airport transfer in Prague. On the day we were to return we called the number provided only to be told that the company we had rung no longer works with Travel Republic! We called the UK and were assured that we could get our own transport and be refunded on our return.

i have booked with this company 7 times, i can't see why people have complained as i've always had great experiences!!!
their prices are really competative (i always spend a few weeks checking around travel agents and online and always end up booking with travel republic) and their staff have been nothign but helpful, although i usually book online as i work shifts, and i'll add i think their website is really easy to use.
i've booked flights, hotels and car hire with them if that helps.

Written on: 18/01/2011

I have booked four holidays through travel republic and all holidays have gone smoothly the accomodation has always been great. We have never had any problems at all, the only draw back i have noticed on the last two holidays I have booked with them is that they have no started charging extra on top of the quoted price. I never pay with credit card it is always a debit card & have never known a surcharge on debit cards before. The full price is not made clear until you have paid then it is… Read Full Review

booked flights to Faro with my two little girls for holiday of a life time with only small funds available. I booked they took my money and then phoned a week later and said the fare had gone up with my flight provider and if I wanted the tickets I had to pay the extra £85 pounds.I have been ripped off as I had to book in fear of flights getting more expensive. They are not interested in my frustrations and position… Read Full Review

Bomber22's Comment

Written on: 15/01/2011

I have the same problem, a refund from Ryanair was passed to Travel Republic on or around 20th December. Despite several phone calls and emails they have failed to pass on the refund to me, in fact they are now ignoring me. I have logged into "View my Booking" which clearly shows they have received the refund and my the booking has a credit balance of £130 ie the money refunded. What I can't understand is that I have booked with them many times, any problems have always been dealt with promptly. What is going on it doesn't make any sense.
