these scumbags ripped me off also for 1600 pound. was supposed to be going to new zealand mon 20th jan. i cant get my head round the fact nobody is doing anything about them. action fraud,trading standards, citizen advice, all you get is go to companies house, nobody is checking the account of mark benson at barclays bank. and because of this they are still able to carry on ripping people off . i wish i knew where they was because i would be taking the law into my own hands.because i did a bank… Read Full Review

I paid them £2000,was due to pay them £2000 at the end of December, but the money come back in my account. when I tried to ring them the phone number is not in use, website now closed, e-mails coming back undelivered.

Paid by my debt card and mu bank can not refund because its a bill payment. No one is prepared to stop these… Read Full Review

“EVIL ROGUES”

Written on: 02/01/2014 by Justlady (1 review written)

These people were exceptionally polite and offered a travel fare cheper than all the agents I had called for quotes. From their website they seemed professional and well acclaimed on social media. my mistake was taking their "company" at face value and not digging deeper to verify their ATOL number... If it sounds too good to be true, it is! They took full payment promising to issue my eticket on 3rd Dec, only to give excuses about some backlog of tickets to be issued, promising to issue the… Read Full Review

“Low-lifes”

Written on: 27/12/2013

Don't deal with them they took me for a large sum. They are very good at sounding genuine. They need to understand 'you can run but you can't hide'. The world is a small place and what goes around comes around. If YOU are responsible you will be found and punished. Better give yourself up now, you'll be a lot safer in prison. Advice from hindsight. Only make online purchases with an insured credit/debit card. If using a travel agent make sure they are ABTA/ATOL registered. … Read Full Review

“RUTHLESS!!!”

Written on: 20/12/2013

Just found out I have also been duped. Paid just under 2600 pounds end of November for tickets that don't exist. Unfortunately paid via bank transfer - lesson learned not to part with such sums with no back up cover. So upsetting and devastating for my family who have worked overtime and all hours to save. Reported to Fraud team. Think maybe also using 'Cheap flights bookers' as a business. Be careful!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/12/2013

I was supposed to get my ticket on the 3rd December to travel on the 3rd of January. The ticket never arrived on the 3rd. I rang them and they said it will come on the 15th as they were issuing tickets for people travelling in December first. Come the 15th and still no ticket. I sent them emails and got no reply. I phoned their number and could not get through as the number is not being recognised. It looks like I have joined the statistics of people tricked by this rogue travel firm… Read Full Review

Same thing happend to me. Was told I will receive tickets on the 5th dec then on the 18th because they were too busy. I have reported this to fraud action! Please do the same. The more people report this the mpre chance of this becoming an investigation and a better chance of receiving our money back!!

Written on: 13/12/2013

I was recommended to this Travel agent by my friend, who was in turn recommended by another friend. He was so convincing with the booking deal he offered me. I paid the initial deposit and then the full amount 2weeks later. He was meant to send my eticket in the first week of December. When I tried contacting him to get my eticket I realised he had disappeared. I called him on the number he gave and it doesn't exist. All my emails have bounced back and his website doesn't exist. He is a fake… Read Full Review

“Disappeared with thousands of pounds”

Written on: 12/12/2013 by hare12 (1 review written)

I was using this company for the first time after they were recommended to me by a work collegue who claimed to have used them in the last 3 years. They were very patient and proffessional when I made my booking. With that type of service I didn't suspect anything until yesterday when I wanted to check with them why they had not sent my e-ticket and my trip due this weekend only to find out phone disconnected and website not accessible. I then phoned the airline using the flight schedule I had… Read Full Review

Agree they have left me in a terrible state - was supposed to have travelled today - paid full ticket amount. I have contacted action fraud, consumer direct, companies house, my local paper you name it. Seems like no one really cares. Companies house said the company is still active and has two weeks in which to notify them of insolvency. Check business website has the company as insolvent. I hate these guys so much and hope something really bad happens to all of them - KARMA.

they are nothing but low life , they ripped us off for 1600, nobody wants to know, trading standards just tell you to contact companies house, citizens advice the same. my bank don't want to know because I paid by bank transfer. nobody looking into the account the money was paid into. was told contact action fraud, but there is no guarantee they will even investigate. so these people can carry on ripping people off. if I knew there address I would be there.

The address they have has turned out to be fake. They have been trading since 2009 doing a good job. I guess when they had gathered people's trust they did a runner with thousands if not millions of pounds. We have been victims.
