“Good service”

Written on: 01/05/2015 by TerryMail (1 review written)

Big thank you to Travelbag for help with organizing our holiday to Las Vegas (returned on 14 April). The Flamingo Hotel they recommended was in a fabulous location and was clean and provided excellent customer service and Las Vegas was buzzing (as they said it would be)! Its easy to leave a bad review when things dont go so well so thought id prove you can leave a good review when things go well. They were professional and customer driven throughout.Keep up the good work! … Read Full Review

“Holiday of a Lifetime”

Written on: 24/04/2015 by franktio (1 review written)

We would like to let everyone know how brilliant the holiday went and to say thank you very much to Travelbag, without whose help we would never have been able to book our dream holiday. We had an absolutely fantastic time and everything went to plan. Travelbag made a few recommendations including the upgrade for the island club package that exceeded all expectations. and the staff at the hotel could not have been better. we saw some fantastic sites and the memories will stay with us forever… Read Full Review

“DO NOT BOOK FLIGHTS ONLINE WITH TRAVELBAG!! ”

Written on: 19/04/2015 by Thomsonog220 (1 review written)

I learnt a valuable lesson today never to book online with a company for the first time without reading reviews first. So when SKYSCANNERS directed me through to Travelbag's booking site, I thought, that's a well known name, shouldn't be any issues, so I went through their booking process and paid the advertised price by debit card. However, I expected to receive a booking confirmation, but no, I got the "request received/ consultant will be back to you within 72 hours" reply. Why I thought… Read Full Review

“No problems recommending !”

Written on: 16/04/2015 by lindacam (1 review written)

Could I just take this opportunity to say what a pleasure it was to deal with Travelbag for my Barbados holiday yesterday as, not only were they happy and pleasant on the telephone and understood what it was I required and this was dealt with quickly and efficiently ( and also at a better price than Virgin Holidays whose operator couldn't have cared less whether I proceeded or not ). Well done and thank you again. I will have no hesitation in using Travelbag again for our next trip… Read Full Review

“Inn Barbados”

Written on: 10/04/2015 by AlanMcCochrane (1 review written)

Myself and my wife have just returned from the absolutely wonderful holiday arranged for us at The Inn. Travelbag were really great with us from start to finish. Firstly - What a great hotel. The staff were very attentive and polite and nothing was too much trouble. Secondly - The weather was constantly 26 degrees throughout the 12 days so perfect! The only small complaint we had was the seating with Virgin Atlantic, something we will learn from for next time. Thanks to Travelbag and their… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2015 by ianboothferry (1 review written)

Travelbag were recommended to me by a friend who recently returned from south east Asia, a twin centre holiday all booked with Travelbag. I'm glad I took her advice. I have been liaising with one of the girls in their chester office on what has turned out to be a complex itinerary. I'm not the easiest of customers and I've changed my mind on a number of occasions! The girl who dealt with us has been calm, patient and professional throughout. Indeed, nothing has been too much trouble for her… Read Full Review

“Misleading flight booking service, apparent scam tactics”

Written on: 26/03/2015 by MV2015 (1 review written)

I was looking for flights from London to Bangkok on Skyscanner. A deal for 508 pounds on EVA Air came up on the list, it was a deal offered by Travelbag on March 25th 2015. I chose to take it and clicked the link, it redirected me to the Travelbag website and the website clearly said "BOOK TICKETS NOW", I inserted my details -including credit card info- and they said I'd get a confirmation. Just like a lot of people who've been reviewing their flight tickets service, it turns out that the… Read Full Review

“Terrible expensive experience”

Written on: 13/03/2015 by Disgruntledone123456789 (1 review written)

Having spent some time coordinating our holiday with travelbag (weeks) via email, we finally settled on an itiniery for a U.S. road trip. We booked last Friday after Travelbag agreed to price match a Netflights package. The trip was for just under £6k. I received an email yesterday from the agent informing me that there was a 'slight problem'. It turned out that because netflights also had held flights for us when they gave me their quote and Travelbag don't actually book your seats… Read Full Review

Dge123's Comment

Written on: 03/03/2015

Agree 100%, booked flights to Bangkok, money taken & everything seemingly okay, received email next day saying I had to pay more money if I wished to continue as previous price no longer available despite accepting booking & taking money, I emailed back saying I didn't wish to continue, I never heard from them again but did receive money back in account today, (1 week later), have booked direct through airline, received booking reference & confirmation in less than 2 minutes (& no card surcharges), travel bags previous price (the one that's not available ) is still being shown today on travel bags website, BEWARE of travel bags fictitious prices.

“Falsely advertised price”

Written on: 10/02/2015 by JayJb (1 review written)

This company led me to believe that I was booking a flight and after taking my personal information, revealed that the flights wold cost an extra £58 (£29 each). When I queried this I was told that I had only submitted a 'request for booking'. I feel duped out of my personal information and when I explained this, the representative actually began to laugh whilst telling me he was 'sorry about that'. I am now in the process of trying to get them to confirm to me in writing that they will not… Read Full Review

This was my first ever booking with Travelbag. They were professional throughout (going on the excellent service i received from (Kirstin), every enquiry i had about my trip was dealt with quickly and easily. We choose to stay at the Peace Resort in Koh Samui. I had a couple of questions that Kirstin didnt know the answer to straight away, so she emailed the hotel directly and within an hour she rang me back with all I wanted to know - excellent service! Would I book with Travelbag again? -… Read Full Review

“Stay well clear!”

Written on: 17/01/2015 by DominikL (1 review written)

Nice enough website but even when they tell you the flight price and availability, they are often untrue, even after you submit your payment details. I bought a ticket, confirmed that the ticket price was live, only to be phoned the next day saying that I need to pay almost £300 more to get the ticket. When I complained, I was told that no matter what it said on the website, as I only received an order confirmation email and not the tickets, I should have known!!! Even more importantly, when… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2015 by Francesca485 (1 review written)

Absolutely shocking.. Sold me an abolsute dream... and in reality was all fake advertising, booked a flightto dubai and got an email 3 days later to say it was unavailable, when I could have booked elsewhere, but rather prices shot up. And when I spoke to a memeber of staff they were absolutely rude about the issue. DO NOT USE THEM EVERRRR!!!!! better of just finding realiable travel agents, and these people are not reliable… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/12/2014 by spencetayl (1 review written)

Thanks to all at Travelbag for their advice and booking our holiday to Boston and New York. We flew out on the new Dreamliner with Virgin which was a great unexpected experience. The Colonnade Hotel recommended to us and staff in Boston and their hospitality provided was absolutely fabulous and exceeded our expectations. The Amtrack experience was great as the lovely chap at travelbag advised us it would. New York another good experience. DELTA airlines Ok I feel not comparable to Virgin. I… Read Full Review

We've visited Toronto, Niagara Falls and New York which we booked over the phone with Travelbag back in August. We've just got back now and had a wonderful time, everything was arragned brilliantly - we didnt have any worried for the whole 11 days. We were a bit nervous about booking it as we have never done a holiday where you spend time in different places but the chap who dealt with us from Travelbag was really knowledgable and really put our minds at rest. From start to finish they were… Read Full Review
