“Don't bother complaining”

Written on: 20/09/2013 by beast5 (3 reviews written)

When taking the holiday out (Which I haven't been on yet) I managed to obtain a £50 discount. Great I thought!! However the pre-selected seats that I was told were included didn't appear on my invoice. I called back to be told these were not part of the package and I had to pay extra. After much talking and little action I raised a complaint 2 weeks after raising via email I was told that the department i'd emailed couldn't deal with the complaint but not to worry as if I replied to the exact… Read Full Review

“will take your money with a smile”

Written on: 11/06/2013 by MathewSpiller (1 review written)

What an absolutely rubbish organisation this is. I booked a holiday on Saturday to Disney World, Florida. I requested that we sit together on flights as two children coming with me and wife. This was added to my cost, or so I was told. Then they tell me that they had made a mistake and my holiday price would increase. Also when we went into the store we explained that we would be taking my step son with us and we were not 100% sure of the surname used on his passport. The agent told us that… Read Full Review

“SHAMBOLIC!”

Written on: 10/12/2011

I have booked our holidays with co-op travel in Rochdale for the last 10yrs. This year, I needed to know if our Esta was still valid for our trip to Florida--not the most difficult of questions?? How wrong i was, one member of staff told me i would have to alter the details on it, because last year we went to a different state in the US. Another staff member told me, no, she was wrong, it was valid and just leave it. Not the conflicting answer I wanted to here a week from departure. I then… Read Full Review

“I would go there again”

Written on: 05/11/2011

I booked a last minute holiday to Cyprus in October 2011, i was more than happy with the service i received. I had not been abroad for about 9 Years, so was a bit out of touch. The CO-OP found me a brilliant apartment in a lovely resort. I am definately going back to them again next Year. So well done to Midlands CO-OP Travel in the High Street, Solihull, West Midlands… Read Full Review

“call centre is useless”

Written on: 04/11/2011

I've just called co-op travel as I could not make any booking online (I'm travelling with infant). First operator put me on hold after 5 sec of conversation!!! Phone went dead. Another one checked just one offer, according to him it was not available and he didn't even try any alternatives!! I have no chance to find it by myself online as option for travellers with infats is not available. And call centre people can't wait to get rid of your phone!!!! Avoid if possible!!!! … Read Full Review

“no ownership”

Written on: 11/10/2011 by EAppleby1960 (7 reviews written)

Although we had a really nice rep in the Liverpool store it has been a mare trying to get certain details sorted and we are due to travel shortly but have still not been given an answer over who from, when and where our tickets are coming from? Co-op have sold the holiday on behalf of Thompson and despite having paid for all the holiday upfront getting a) a straight answer and b) someone to call back with any answer is proving to be an up hill struggle. If (with months of planning) things are… Read Full Review

“Dreadful! Dreadful! Dreadful!”

Written on: 07/10/2011

To be honest I can't be bothered to waste anymore of my time on this company...but I'll just leave a few warnings so what happened to us, doesn't happen to others. + This company lost £1200.00 of my money and tried to make me pay it again. + This company arranged an airport transfer that was 4 1/2 hours late collecting us from the airport (because the company they booked us with couldn't get the driver up apparently, according to the rep). + I asked specifically for a hotel at a particular… Read Full Review

“Wrong flight times/rude staff/lyers”

Written on: 04/08/2011 by Corness21 (1 review written)

We booked at the Doncaster Co-op to go to Ayia Napa for 1 week. Booking the holiday was fine no problems in taking our money from us but when it came to go on our holiday they turned round to one of my friends and said that she wasn't able to go because her passport was not valid (Even though it was valid for 3 months after we got back) She was gutted but she rang tha actual government flight place and they said she was fine so she just went. The day before we were meant to fly we had a phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2011

We booked a holiday through the co-op online, however we did this in a branch. It was not made clear that this was not a package holiday and actually all different components and no rep on site. So when we arrived and were moved to different accommodation that that which we booked we had no comeback or any assitiance in resolving the problem - not what I want from my 'holiday'!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2011

I wish there were more Travel Agents as friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about their job as the Co-op! Absolutely great service, unlike most travel agents they will check everyone to make sure I got the best deal, which I certainly did. I have used them in their St Neots branch and more recently their new one in Bedford, simply fantastic! Keep it going youre the best!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2011

I booked a Holiday from the Co Op Travel Agent in Heckmondwike to Turkey I was offered a free boat trip which sounded fab. They then told me I could not have the boat trip because it was 2 hours away and they had made a mess they then offered £10 off my holiday which no way compensates for the boat trip which would have cost much more as it was an all day trip with lunch.
I explained to the Co cop that I would like a refund as we only booked with them because of the boat trip. The rude manager… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2011

First time using Co-op travel booking a weekend hotel in New York for what appeared to be a fab price. Booked it, paid deposit. E-mail came back, room not available. They offered same room at higher price or refund. Chose the room as wanted to stay there - sorted. Then chose to upgrade to bigger / better room. Co-op couldn't do it even though we had confirmed with the hotel that rooms were available. We booked direct with the hotel with no problem and cancelled our booking with Co-op (over 1… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2011

Had used the Co-operative Travel in Heckmondwike last year to book our holiday, found the agent to be very efficient and helpful. We decided to try them again this year and the same agent remembered our face and again found us the right holiday at the right price. We had the holiday booked for 2 weeks and encountered a problem which meant we had to cancel and lose our money. The agent then said she would check the costs and call me back. Shortly after I got a call from the manager who told me… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2010

Would strongly recommend to anyone to avoid Co-operative Travel for any transactions whatsoever whether it be travel, travel money, insurance. Would rather give my custom to anyone but the Co-operative Travel on the basis that customer satisfaction and the way they speak to customers is the low of the low Avoid their Liverpool Lord Street branch at all costs. Rude staff and when you complain the so called Customer Services Solutions Department will simply be as efficent as someone from… Read Full Review

be very careful if booking on line with this lot.on some of their holidays, when you get to the latter stages of booking there are 4 options which may be removed...5kg extra luggage allowance, seat choice,resort transfer.and inflight meal.if you choose to remove the 5kg extra luggage allowance ( the normal 15kg allowance shows up as part of your package at no cost ) you will find that you have no luggage allowance at all when your tickets arrive.this means an additional cost and several phone… Read Full Review
