“terrible service”

Written on: by LaurynNoonan (1 review written)

I called up regarding a holiday to turkey which was advertised at £259. he kept me on for ages before giving me the price which had increased to £490, this was without any baggage. I had expected extra costs but not to nearly double in price. I said thank you for his time and the information given, after explaining that I was only calling for a quote and not to book. he then hung up on me. charming !! ill stick with teletext holidays or on the beach. much better service… 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 site, 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. However If you could email me the name of the advertiser which you had dealings with I will contact them and ask them to investigate the cost difference is cost for you?

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.

“Don't even bother”

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

Ditto, when I rang twice tonight to book holidays for different dates reps both times accidentally added the figures incorrectly , in their favour of course! apologised when picked up on it. They confirmed hotel and flight times and took card details and said they would phone me back with reference numbers. suprise suprise both times the flights they had told me all about were unavailable now and had gone up around £100 each time! I declined being ripped off and advised them their practice was unacceptable and illegal and I was going to inform every one! so here we are :)

“STEER CLEAR! Nightmare company!”

Written on: by Luisa02 (1 review written)

Booked a holiday to Morocco for a week. Okay it seemed a good deal, and then there were all the add ons. Every time we thought we had a final price something else would be added on or the flight/hotel would increase. Paid for online check in as they said this would work out cheaper but they didn't tell us that when we came to check in online we would have to pay £7.99 per seat. I thought that would be the last hurdle only I've just received a call (less than 24 hours before our flight)… Read Full Review

I do not know the name of the advertiser as that is not stated on your website either. If you put a 5 star filter on your website you will see our hotel (Kenzie Europa) clearly marketed as 5 star on several occassions on your site.

Can you please advise me of how to make a formal complaint as we ended up in a 4 star hotel, not the one that was later allocated to us as the room there was small, dark, dingy, smelly and full of ants! We spent our whole first day trying to find a suitable hotel. This is not acceptable.

Our booking reference was PDNY5E

Not impressed with Holiday Discount Centre in the least. We found an all inclusive holiday we liked the look of in Tenerife, advertised at a certain price. The site we had to call was Super Savers. When we called, we were told it would cost us a lot more and that the price advertised on the website was only for the first 2 customers who called in. How bizaar. False advertising?

Written on: by johnwillie (1 review written)

My recent complaint about Holiday Discount Centre resulted in the standard reply "WIZNY OOR FAULT".Paid them approx £900 for a week in Torremolinas after they kept upping the price with add ons. Returned yesterday from a Thomas Cook holiday 2weeks in Florida £1200. They also arranged 2weeks car hire for a further £250. Anybody crazy enough to use this company after reading the reviews is probably someone who believes in the tooth fairy. Dont be fooled by the odd reply to a bad review saying… Read Full Review

Hello,
I am firstly very sorry to hear that you were not happy with the booking you made via our holiday price comparison site.

I have never directly received a complaint or email from you concerning your Torremolinos booking; therefore I have never give a "WIZNY OOR FAULT" response.

I would like to assure you that if you would like to send through to myself your complaint outlining the add ons that the advertiser has quoted to you I will investigate this with the advertiser involved.

Holiday Discount Centre is a holiday price comparison site therefore we do not take bookings directly. However I would like to assure you that we do follow a strict code of conduct and also have regular compliance checks in place to monitor our advertisers.

If you would like to discuss this further please email myself with your contact details.

Also I would like to add that we do not allow staff members to write reviews about our company.
