“Shoddy rip off merchants”

Written on: 09/03/2016 by davidindurham (1 review written)

Like others .... Saw an advertised trip at approx £250 but couldn't book online. Phoned to organise the trip, which was no longer available, but for £40 more they can do something similar, still seemed reasonable and I felt under pressure on the phone, so agreed and processed payment. Later that day, got a phone call saying they had undercharged for the hotel, which would cost £20 more. That afternoon, received a 'confirmation/quotation' for the £322 reluctantly agreed .. PLUS booking… 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”

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,
Thank you for replying I was not 100% sure of travel company so I have contacted the one I thought it was super escapes the man was very nice but the advertised price for the Blue sea apts Lanzarote was £161 per person = £322 plus baggage £50 each plus transfers £13 each which comes to £448 for the flight etc as advertised so why was I quoted £675 if this deal isn't available then it should be taken off the site I look forward to your response for the additional £257 which i have been quoted

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

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.

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.......

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 :)
