“great holiday for the price”

Written on: 12/06/2016

This holiday was to Qwara, Malta in March. My daughter and I travelled over for my 65th birthday. Our flight left from Manchester on time. Coach was waiting to transfer us. Check in at Bella Vista hotel very smooth. (I had already stayed there before.) Before we left home got a call saying the outdoor pool was being re-furbished and did we want to change hotels. Our flight was delayed 2 hours on the way back, due to Air Traffic problems in France.All in all great holiday for a special birthday… Read Full Review

The reason the star rating is so low is because they are nothing more than that and a company that went into administration a couple of years ago.
When you book a holiday with them, you are booking a holiday with another company( or so they say) and they are now just the middle man who uses a number of suppliers.
God help you if you book with this company that went into administration a few years ago now should anything go wrong ( as it did for myself and my wife) as you will be told that the holiday was not booked with them but instead with one of their suppliers. It will go on forever.
Look it up, google it, you will see that this company went into administration a couple of years ago
You have been warned

“excellent customer experience”

Written on: 11/12/2015 by Austin367 (1 review written)

It was only about 2 weeks ago I decided that I wanted to return to La Gomera for my well deserved "ME" time Christmas break. Having been to Gomera before, it was my wish that when I would return, I would stay @ The Parador in San Sebastian with multiple trips to Valle Gran Rey. Prior to finding Bookable Holidays on a google search (having not heard of the company before) I spoke with several travel agents some of whom are La Gomera Specialists, I was told that I had left it too late, most… Read Full Review

“Shifty operators”

Written on: 10/10/2015 by streety666 (1 review written)

Had an email advertising a Grand Prix trip to Spain with flights and tickets and race entrance £299. Thought I would book as it was my birthday weekend. Just as I was asked my payment, I wanted the price confirmed And the operator said it was £799 each. Amazingly, she could not justify the difference just telling me, " sorry that is what the trip is coming out at". When I mentioned the advertised rate, she said it must be wrong. DO NOT BOOK WITH THESE PEOPLE. I have now unsubscribed… Read Full Review

we chose a package holiday with bookable holidays.com, and clicked to say we accept the price of the holiday, and they went ahead and took bank card details to pay in full for the holiday, and i thought that was it, i had booked and paid for the holiday, but an hour later we had a phone call saying that the holiday we booked and paid for was now almost double the price, so they asked us for more money to be taken out of our bank, we refused and are now going to a more reputable company… Read Full Review

When did this happen to you? Im really worried tonight after reading all of these reviews. I booked a holiday with them on Monday for next week and I havent received my confirmation email with flight tickets etc. I have emailed the hotel and Monarch airlines tonight so they can confirm I have a booking with them. Im awaiting their response. Im so worried now that they have taken my money and i havent got a holiday.

Check with the hotel is yr booking paid since I got booking at the hotel but one week before my departure bookable holiday just cancelled my hotel. And actually when I called them and asked what happened they just said that the company went down on 17th of October and under administration now and later they send all legal documents to confirm that. But if you booked just recently hopefully you ll be fine. Anyway wish you a good holiday!

We arrived at out hotel to be told our agent had cancelled our booking, so we slept outside all night till 11am (9am) uk, phoned them to be told they had gone into administration and there was nothing they could do!

They have been in financial difficulties for a month,
Staff not paid, suppliers not paid
Did you get an ATOL certificate?
If your did the the CAA will help,
If not, the. Bookable broke the law and you should Sue the director.

The same thing has happenend to my son and his friend . They only left the uk yesterday and on arrival at their all inclusive hotel were told their booking had been cancelled , when I rang bookable holidays I was told the same thing as you that they would have to pay for hotel themselves. Its disgusting that they are letting people still fly and then nowhere to stay on arrival . .

“IF YOU WANT TO GO ON HOLIDAY - DONT BOOK WITH THESE!”

Written on: 16/08/2014 by Jeromeg1945 (1 review written)

Myself and a friend booked a holiday with Bookable back in March 13. We had booked to go to Olu Deniz. 30 minutes after booking the holiday, my friend called up and gave an alternative email address to send all documents too as he had previously had his account hacked. He made it more than clear not to use this email address for anything as he had experienced problems. They confirmed this had been done while on the phone. 3 days before departure, we logged onto their website only to find out… Read Full Review

We booked a 10 day stay at the maracan resort hotel ola Denise, which was classed as a 4*. in September 2013 we paid the full balance of £1500, we printed all confirmation at the time and everything seemed ok. Two months before we were due to fly they changed our flight times, this seems the norm, 2 weeks before we were going I printed off our holiday vouchers which stated out accomadation was at the maracan beach hotel (3*) and not the maracan resort, I phoned the admin manager who assured… Read Full Review

“Any problems are not their problems”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by Tracycw (1 review written)

Arrived in hurghada via bookable holidays. Hotel said two out of our four rooms were not booked. No uk number for bookable out of hours. Denied problem was theirs as they outsourced room booking to another company. Great-stranded in Egypt with choice of no room or paying additional £1600. 24 hours later local agent sorted but terrible start to a short 7 day break. Avoid this company as it's worth paying a bit more for a reputable company who will take responsibility and sort things out for you… Read Full Review

“THEY DON'T CARE”

Written on: 24/04/2014 by lozzatrichards (1 review written)

Booking with Bookable Holidays was a mistake. The hotel voucher issued was no good on arrival in resort... agent went bust. Had to pay up front for room or sleep in the street. Getting a refund from Bookable was like getting blood out of a stone to be honest. Apparently I had to wait for the administrators.... actually they had to wait not me. I paid them so they had to refund me and wait themselves. No response to emails. Eventually said I was contacting ABTA and lo and behold a response… Read Full Review

This happened to us in 2009 - hotel closed after our arrival in resort. Absolutely no aftercare - ABTA did not help at all & we never ever got any money back.
I would recommend to anybody thinking of booking with bookable be aware if it goes wrong you are on your own & they do not communicate.

Happened to us in 2009 - I am shocked that this company is still allowed to keep trading.
We learnt from this that ABTA is a worthless accreditation & do not help & that Consumer Direct whilst acknowledging that we were in the right & bookable were wrong wanted us to do the work & pay for our own solicitors.
With the authorities taking such laid back attitudes it is up to sites like this to warn people of the sharp practices & thieves that we pay our hard earned money to.

Bookable holidays.com arranged as part of telesales booking for travel transfers from Feurteventura in September 13. Sub contracted firm with two highly stressed reps had fifty people waiting for one and three quarter hours in car park. No coaches. Eventually agreed to pay for taxi but said you need to claim back when you get back through Bookable holidays.com. Got home and bookable tried and failed to contact coach firm and gave us £2 as compensation. £10 less than taxi fair. All smiles… Read Full Review
