“Re-Scheduled flight times”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by Deanna282 (1 review written)

Terrible service. Flights were re-scheduled, which I understand is not their fault, however I was informed of this in August, via email. It is now December, I still haven't received my updated e-ticket, and I am chasing them. My flight is in 11 days. In response to my chasing I received an email with the following paragraph: 'We have placed your booking on queue of airline to re-issue; you will receive your tickets within next 7 working days & want to request you to leave 1 good review for… Read Full Review

“Flight to Costa Rica via Toronto”

Written on: 30/11/2014 by maiziemay (1 review written)

I booked a ticket with travelup from Aberdeen, via Heathrow and Toronto to San Jose in Costa Rica. The idea was to sleep in Toronto Airport which would allow me to arrive the middle of the day in San Jose. On presenting myself at the desk in Toronto Airport at 6am I was told that flights to San Jose were no longer happening on Sundays as some weeks before they had been rescheduled to Tuesdays! I had received no communication by email or otherwise about this. My emails on return have not… Read Full Review

Very untruthful, dubious and not helpful . Travel up is very unreliable and , there is nothing good and forthcoming about this company. I will never recommend them to no one, unless you want to be duped and loose your money. They are bunch of rogues… Read Full Review

“refund for cancelled flight”

Written on: 28/10/2014 by Bentleyln485 (1 review written)

Twelve weeks after our flight was cancelled we are still waiting for a refund of our fares. Travel Up seem to be delaying this by asking the same questions over and over ( Twice they have asked for confirmation of our credit card number ) , and by promising payment by a certain date and not paying . I would never use this company again… Read Full Review

“What an incompetent shower of unprofessional people....”

Written on: 11/10/2014 by platterfish (3 reviews written)

What an incompetent shower of unprofessional people. These lot need to learn some proper customer service skills. They wanted me to call my bank to obtain the authorisation code for my payment - thats your job Travelup - have a proper website in place! Ridiculous. The worst aftercare, passed from pillar to post with people that don't understand english or have any customer service skills Cancelled - DO NOT BOOK CHEAP FLIGHTS WITH THEM… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 22/09/2014

Complete lack of customer service, incompetent advisors with laughable levels of written and verbal communication abilities who give the impression the business is run out of someone's back room. Initial flights re-routed with next to no information provided then told (incorrectly) that rescheduled flights had also been cancelled. Issue only resolved by contacting the airline myself after several emails and (expensive) phone calls. Do yourself a favour, pay a little bit extra and either go… Read Full Review

“NEVER book with Travelup”

Written on: 21/05/2014

Never book with Travelup, ESPECIALLY long haul flights. We booked a return flight to Tokyo for our honeymoon. Flight out was BA and flight back was supposed to be JAL from Narita Airport to London Heathrow. Towards the end of our trip, we tried to check in online 24 hours before, as instructed by Travelup. The site wasnt accepting our details so we went to the airport 1 day early to see what was going on. JAL said that our details were not registered anywhere. We had no return flight. On top… Read Full Review

“BEWARE Price increased after paid”

Written on: 23/04/2014 by 112Bowman (1 review written)

Price on the website shown 1022 pounds but after I filled in my card details and paid for the flights - it's increased to 1029.51 pounds for no reason. There was no insurance or any other add-on options and I didn't use VISA debit (no surcharge). How can they debited more money that the amount set out in the previous page?? Contacted Travel Up and they refused to refund, saying that the prices update automatically. So BEWARE, if it's updated by seconds while you are filling in your card… Read Full Review

“TravelUp travel agents- Awful, Awful, Awful”

Written on: 10/04/2014

Undeserving of even one star. Now, when you book and pay for flights with a travel agent, you sort of expect to go don't you? Especially, when you double check your itinerary on the website the day before, and print out your e-tickets displaying status 'confirmed'. Not so, with TravelUp. A month prior, they had kindly rebooked our departure flight to one 2 hours earlier (the original flight still existed - we were just moved from it). They informed us of this change by e-mail. Trouble is… Read Full Review

“WOST AGENCY EVER DO NOT USE”

Written on: 07/04/2014

Worst agency ever. They took my money for flights that didn't exist. They refused, point blank to help with their mistake. When I said I was going to drive to their offices the response was "if you step into out office I will knock you out and kill you" he then hung up on me. They refused to give me any information to prove they were registered with any governing or standards agency. I would never use them again and suggest you don't either. Stay well clear of them, they are rude, obnoxious… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY AT ANY COST!”

Written on: 01/04/2014 by Arnoldtg184 (1 review written)

Travelup is the worst company I have ever dealt with for booking a holiday. They didn’t inform me of a change in my flight which meant that we missed a flight and had to pay for another one. Following this I have spent the next 2 weeks trying to speak to someone regarding this. The first contact, Dimple, who had made the booking I spoke to advised me she would look into it and then was unavailable to speak for the next week. This was then passed to her manager, Mustafa, who again has been… Read Full Review

“Unfairly treated”

Written on: 31/03/2014 by Danimac112 (1 review written)

A good friend of mine recently purchased a ticket with TravelUp and received the confirmation of the booking. As of March 9th, when she paid for the ticket, and this company received her payment, she had assumed all was well. When she contacted the company to arrange to add another passenger to the existing booking, she was told that the tickets had been cancelled because she had not contacted her bank to obtain an authorization number for the transaction (apparently this request had been… Read Full Review

“Booked, then they increased price. Rip-off”

Written on: 08/03/2014 by dkeith109 (2 reviews written)

Skyscanner identified this firm as having the cheapest price for a forthcoming trip from London to Melbourne, so I 'booked' with them. Unfortunately, what wasn't clear (though was probably mentioned in the minutiae of their Terms & Conditions) was that I hadn't actually booked tickets, instead I'd asked them to book them (very subtle difference). They immediately took £1,350 from my bank account, then rang me 2 days later to say the price had gone up and they wanted another £100 (which made… Read Full Review

“AVOID AVOID AVOID”

Written on: 07/02/2014 by ANGRYTRAVELUPCUSTOMER (1 review written)

Travel Up misadvertised flights on their website so when i purchased my flights London - Cape Town with SAA I thought that they were reasonable. When i didn't receive my e-ticket within 24hrs as my confirmation e-mail states i made numerous calls to Travel Up, it took them almost a week to respond. I was told that they flights were misadvertised and that they couldn't honour them, they would require an additional £100 from me. I had already purchased coach tickets each end and arranged to… Read Full Review

“Never again”

Written on: 29/01/2014

Incompetent to the bone! First my name was spelt wrongly and then the agent didn't give me any PNR no to check-in. I had to do it last minute (for a long distant flight). I hated it all. But I must say they are pretty fast and cheap with the tickets. I am not complaining about that… Read Full Review

“Avoid this company as they will treat you like...”

Written on: 22/01/2014

I purchased two return tickets for Jakarta Indonesia from Travel-Up on 23/12/12. The Airline was Qatar Airways which is a good airline. The departure date was 24th February 13. Fourteen days before departure I received an email from Travel up informing me my outbound flight had been canceled because all the new Bowing dreamliners had been grounded world-wide because of all the problems the planes had been having since they were launched only months before. I was informed we had been put on an… Read Full Review

“Dreadfull”

Written on: 21/01/2014

Booked a flight with Travel Up 8 months in advance to Zambia then found out 4 months later from a friend that the flight had been cancelled. Travel Up confirmed it had been cancelled but only offered me an alternative flight to Johannesburg leaving me to find a connecting slight for the rest of the journey myself at an additional £500 cost. They just blamed it on the airline and refused to forward me there complaints policy and stated there was no appeal process through themselves or ATOL as… Read Full Review

We are sorry to read your comments. Unfortunately the airlines reserve their rights to cancel or amend their flight schedules at any time but do so only when unavoidable.

If you are not satisfied with the alternative flights provided or wish to discuss further the handling of your booking please do write us an email with the subject ReviewCentre followed by your booking reference. We will happily look into it for you.

We look forward to hear from you.
