“We used Holiday Discount Centre to look for holidays...”

Written on: 12/08/2016 by StanleyJimenez (1 review written)

We used Holiday Discount Centre to look for holidays and chose one from their site. The holiday was booked through Travel Service Group. After booking the holiday they called back 5 hours later to tell us that the holiday flights may not be any good for us they are not direct, they then offered us other holidays to different locations that we didn't want to go too. This is a sham and I would avoid this company at all costs. They took £500 unauthorised from our account as a so called… Read Full Review

“The price you see is not what you get.”

Written on: 08/08/2016 by KHorne (3 reviews written)

I have used this site three times this month to find a cheap late holiday all with the same results. Your search for what you want and a price appears with a reference number which is as useful as a chocolate teapot in the Sahara desert. On all three occasions the actual price of the holiday was several hundred pounds more than the price quoted on the website. The site is totally misleading people in to ringing and then the person you speak to tries to push you in to booking. The truth… Read Full Review

“Initial advertised holiday not available”

Written on: 03/08/2016 by Sarai1979 (1 review written)

My mother asked to take my child away at half term, she'd found an affordable holiday online with H D C. She checked the dates with me and then proceeded to make the arrangements. They told her that holiday WA no longer available but what about this 1 for a little more. She agreed and paid only to find out it wasn't on the same dates as the last holiday and my child ended up missing 3 days of school! The hotel was no better than ok but the food was dreadful, my mum can usually find something to… Read Full Review

“rip off!!!”

Written on: 31/05/2016 by holidayz (1 review written)

they advertise deals that they cant match, we called for 4 adults sharing a room in September to Malta advertising at £369 each, called up and she said it then was £586 each, she said that the transfers were complimentary but they couldn't have been because when we called up again and spoke to an agent he said it would be £530 with out transfers. They said about extra taxes but didnt tell us what they were for. Don't advertise prices then put them up.. dont shop here!!… Read Full Review

“Send out spam SMS texts with no way of stopping them.”

Any company that sends out unsolicited SMS messages advertising their holidays with no way of opting out from a fake number is clearly not a reputable organisation. Be very wary of them!!!… Read Full Review

“Not what it says on the tin”

Written on: 02/04/2016 by Angeline266 (1 review written)

I tried to book a deal in Menorca but found the price quoted on the website was no longer available however I could book the same hotel for more than twice the advertised price. The website does not allow you to book online you have to phone and speak to someone at the actual travel company who then tries to sell a completely different deal. I decided not to use  them… Read Full Review

“Website prices are never honoured with HDC.”

Written on: 07/03/2016 by Dougswansea (1 review written)

Looked at HDC to book this year's holiday and found a trip to the Canaries for £400. You cannot book online and have to phone up where you will be put through to an Indian call centre. Then you are told that the holiday you want is no longer available but a similar one can be purchased for a lot more money. I was quoted £675 instead of the original £400. If you refuse then they keep phoning you back with "hard-sell". I tried 3 times and it was the same story each time… Read Full Review

“Excellent value for money.”

Written on: 18/09/2015 by KarenRob (1 review written)

My husband and I have just returned from our holiday in Torremolinos. It was our worst holiday ever. Not because of anything you have done, we received some devastating news 20 minutes after we arrived at the hotel. I just wanted people to know that they needn't worry about your holidays being such good value. If people are in the mind of 'you get what you pay for' they might be reluctant to take the chance. They need to know from people with experience that it isn't the case. We were… Read Full Review

“BEWARE, ADVERTISEMENT PRICE NOT ANYWHERE NEAR TRUE PRICE”

Written on: 18/08/2015

Please beware of the holiday adverts, the cost you see is nowhere near the real price. I phoned up numerous times and was told almost the same story, add £200 plus to advert price. Common themes from agents: The apartments are full, we have to upgrade room or change hotel, It is not a direct flight, therefore extra costs. They will offer cheap transfers and baggage but add the above on anyway. They then become rude on the phone when you question the price. I will never use this site again… Read Full Review

Hello,

We appreciate your feedback and take all advice into consideration when reviewing our services.

We have over 40 advertisers who feature holidays on our holiday comparison sitesite, all compulsory charges are included in the price you see however prices are based on 2 adults sharing, so prices can change depending on how many passengers are travelling, also optional extras such as resort transfers, in-flight meals or baggage can incur an additional fee, therefore costs may also increase for this reason. If you could email me the name of the advertiser which you contacted from our comparison site I can look into the additional cost which you mention in your message.

“PRICES ARE NOT THE SAME AS ADVERTISED”

Written on: 16/08/2015 by boBentley291 (1 review written)

I rang up after seeing a holiday I wanted for £296 pp = £592 I thought it will be about £15 for transfers plus £48 each for baggage £96 so I reckoned that the price would be around the £700 + mark but after a while of speaking I got the final price of £961 why don't they put the price what it will cost on their website so people can see what it will cost When I asked why it was so different I was informed that all the standard rooms had gone and I was getting a bigger room… Read Full Review

Hi when you booked with this company did they tell you that you needed to pay money for checking in at the airport? I am scared to book as they said that was total price but then told me to pay more at the end of the call for checking in. Please help

“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
