“Awful spammers”

Written on: 06/09/2017 by abcxyz86771 (1 review written)

Waste of time. When you phone the Barton price is gone and you'll only save £20 at best. And it gets worse. They then send you spam SMS/text measages! Which claim you can stop them, But the texts are from a short code, the number they give is a short code so may be a premium rate text number!… Read Full Review

“Over the last 3 years or more I have looked at the...”

Written on: 03/08/2017 by Darwin1953 (1 review written)

Over the last 3 years or more I have looked at the prices on line having first put all the travel details in ,ie dates etc etc and when I ring up the cost can go up by hundreds of pounds plus the usual baggage and transfers on top of that. I will never ring them ever again and if I go on their web site it will be by accident. My advise is to avoid this company at all costs and my next step is to report them to the otbonldson and any other trades association… Read Full Review

Hello, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Holiday Discount Centre is a price comparison website where travel providers can advertise their offers.

All prices advertised are based on 2 adults sharing and must include compulsory costs, optional extras such as bags and transfers can be booked at an additional fee, if you wish to proceed with the booking without any optional extras you can do so at the price advertised.

We would like to discuss your experience in more detail, please email us.

I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that you have encountered when attempting to book your holiday via our price comparison site. Thanks Vicky

“Its all a farce!!!”

Written on: 01/05/2017 by Alyson91 (1 review written)

I am writing this review after spending two full days and numerous phone calls to Holiday Discount Centre to try to book a short weekend break for my stepdaughter. I saw a couple of holidays which were the right dates/times and the right price for her, I phoned up to book and was assured that the price I had seen was the price I would pay. I was booking 3 nights all inclusive at a cost of £104 per person (no transfers as they are hiring a car). I double checked before giving my card details… Read Full Review

Hello,

I'm sorry you have experienced problems with Holiday Discount Centre, and I'm keen to get the bottom of this for you.

As Holiday Discount Centre are a price comparison site - bookings/enquiries are made with the advertiser rather than the website.

Please email me with the name of agency you contacted and I will follow this complaint up with their company directors for you.

“Not impressed at all. Don't be fooled by advertised prices”

Written on: 09/02/2017 by BigOrmo (1 review written)

Booked a Holiday to Puerto Banus for two adults. Price advertised was something like from £129 p/p bed and breakfast flight included from Belfast. Fair enough got me interested. Phoned and the cost came to £445 after all the fees etc got added. Real joke. Next bit was even better. I agreed and paid foolishly. Flight was to leave early in the morning which suited us tbh. I recieved a call from the company informing me that the flight was no longer available and they would put me on a later… Read Full Review

“Booked all inclusive holiday from Cardiff to Benidorm...”

Written on: 09/01/2017

Booked all inclusive holiday from Cardiff to Benidorm last night, rung me this morning to say indirect flight which would result in a stop over in Barcelona for 7 hrs,or we could pay extra for a direct flight the following day, not acceptable for us but we have now had to pay a £100 cancellation fee, with an arrogant sales rep which resulted in him saying if you can find cheaper good luck with that! Wish I had read all the reviews first, do not use guys!… Read Full Review

I rang about a holiday which was from £467pp,when I rang to book they said the price was £1136pp.when I said I should pay about £500 they quickly said the holiday for the price advertised was not available any more,I said that was a quick answer,and continued to insist on the price of £467pp.I was told the price was £1136 again and I declined the holiday.I emailed customer services at holiday discount centre and they eventually talked to me on the phone,they said SUNSHINE HOLiDAYS who the… Read Full Review

“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

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

“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

“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”

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

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

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.

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.
