“Is this legal”

Written on: 18/05/2015 by MaureenGlasgow (1 review written)

I have been looking to book a holiday to Egypt in September and checked this site out and was amazed that it was showing really good prices for the hotel I wanted. However when I called to enquire the price rose by over £200. I knew about the baggage charge and did not require transfers. I was told that deal had gone. It was on again next morning and stated price correct at 2am so called at 8am when agents available and again not at price advertised. Increase of £250approx. This has continued… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Value”

Written on: 06/03/2015 by SergioFaulkner (1 review written)

Partner & i were 50/50 on whether HDC prices were for real when we first tried to book a week holiday in Algarve (2013) advertised for £100. So on the first call the price went up a little having been told we must upgrade flights to Thomson, bla bla bla. Other add on bits resulted in price agreed £200 per person (still a bargain in our opinion). Great flights with Norwegian and private transfer to pleasant 3, not 4 star hotel. Everything went perfect, although always waiting for a catch. Our… Read Full Review

“Excellent customer service and consumer advice”

Written on: 20/01/2015 by mariepearce (1 review written)

I booked a holiday with one of the advertisers on Holiday Discount Centres website and unfortunately upon confirmation the holiday wasn't as I originally was led to believe. I tried very hard to resolve the dispute with the advertiser without success. In the end I had no option but to contact the team at Holiday Discount Centre to make a complaint about the travel company with whom I was dealing. The treatment I received was absolutely first class, my complaint was fully investigated and… Read Full Review

“Fantastic customer service”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by DoryM (1 review written)

Having booked a holiday through cheekytrip.com I was very concerned that the company I booked with didn't confirm via e-mail and phone as promised. I e-mailed cheekytrip and a particular member of staff called me back within an hour or so. She went out of her way to resolve the problem with the travel company. Although this took a couple of days (down to the travel company and not cheekytrip) this was all resolved and my booking was then confirmed. Outstanding customer service!… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2014 by Emman120 (1 review written)

I have had so many problems with a holiday I booked with holiday discount centre, we had to pay extra than what was advertised! We have been treated disgusting by this company, you get passed from operator to operator and they don't resolve your situation! I asked for to luggage bags and when I had my notice of payment, they had changed it and only given us one bag for two adults to share, which is ridiculous! Then they tell me if I want another luggage bag I have to pay an extra £80 they are… Read Full Review

“Travelate”

Written on: 01/09/2014 by ATGriff (1 review written)

HDC is obviously a comparison site which uses many travel agents. We recently booked a holiday through HDC but the agents were Travelate. We saw a deal to Crete and decided to get some more details the agent originally told us that we were flying with Easyjet from Cardiff to Heraklion and she had us confirmed seats on the flight out, and actually gave me the flight times. when I asked her to check again she came back and said that everything was correct but she had found a flight a day later… Read Full Review

If you have not already done so please forward me you’re compliant via email and I will make sure this is passed over to the Travelate management team.

“Never Use. Conn Men & Woman!!!”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by Captain1001 (1 review written)

We booked 3 days in Majorca with this crowd advertised for £319 each the total holiday ended up costing almost £800. We also had to pay Agency gold service, 4 of them! at a cost of £18, so £72 which they claim is compulsory. Then called me after taking the cash from my account and said I must upgrade as the room the sold is gone, this was an another £40. I did complain to the manager who decided to refund this. I spoke with a few individuals who were all extremely rude once they and took… Read Full Review

You mention the holiday was advertised at £319 each and the total cost ended up at £800, was this £800 each or £800 for 2 people, I would really like to find out what the difference in cost was for. Compulsory charges must be included in the advertised price, but optional extras such as in-flight meals, baggage or transfers can be charged as an extra if you require them on your booking.

Could you please email me with the advertiser you contacted and your booking reference and I will make sure your comments are passed onto their senior management team for investigation.

I would like to assure you this matter will be dealt with once your email has been received.

“Don't even bother”

Written on: 23/08/2014 by Debbiepat (1 review written)

I'm normally realistic with this stuff, 130pp to Rhodes off peak all inclusive. Obviously I was never going to pay this! The sneakiness involved in gradually bumping up the price. Baggage,ok. Booking fee, ok. Online check in...really!? But yeah ok. Price still good so yes we will book. Then a phone call 20 mins later....... Oh mam there has been a block booking of 20 people on the flight we were going to book you (really how do they know what budget airline bookings are???) so other flights are… Read Full Review
