Paid £9500 for 9people. Booked 9 months ago. Told yesterday holiday to eygpt at the water park was not available. Tried to get us to pay £2000 more for a mother holiday. Told them they are the worst company I have delt with. Will never walk into there shop again. Got full refund. Wast of my time, they will take your money and give you utter bad service. (read more)

I booked a holiday to Morocco on the website (same holiday was £107 extra on Firstchoice site). My confirmation of booking appeared straight away by e-mail, paperwork came through the post 4 days later. I noticed I had booked a room that had a connecting door. I hadn't intended to (knowing that these can sometimes be noisy). I sent an e-mail to customer services to see if I could rectify this. I was impressed to receive a response less than 24 hours later saying that the booking had been... (read more)

I booked with holiday hypermarket online in early May to go in late June. I rang the customer service before booking to check prices had not changed and they said if it goes through and gives you confirmation you get the cheaper internet price and no prices will be added it will tell you if it hasn't gone through due to prices. So i booked and never had a problem, confirmation came through within seconds and received paperwork within 5 working days, tickets were sent out 12 days before... (read more)

Online booking system works ok. But just try getting in touch with them afterwards e.g. to make the final payment... takes hours. If/When you do get through (this alone took me more than 10 goes over the period of 3 weeks), they aren't helpful. It's taken me 3 weeks just to try & get a receipt for my holiday. Literally hours spent on hold. Still no receipt or proof of paid invoice. Worries me that my tickets are very unlikely to turn up at this rate as both my receipt and subsequent... (read more)

staff not very helpful their "great prices" not very great, not happy when we gave countries we did not want to go to, after all it's our holiday.
don't listen to them about their special car parking rates at the airports it's more expensive than booking direct as they charge for using credit card.
their special exchange rates for being a costumer turned out to be lower than a local shop.
no phone call to tell us our paperwork was ready to be picked up. don't try and phone them the outside... (read more)

Myself and a friend used the Holiday Hypermarket on Kingswood in Hull to book a holiday to Greece, 4 adults, 2 children. Our booking were taken by Dean. We were quoted a price and so continued to book it, however Dean had missed off our childrens prices, so the price went up by £60. We asked if he could do the holiday for the first price quoted, as this was not our mistake. Dean replied 'if you dont like it, then book it somewhere else'. His attitude were absolutely appauling, poor customer... (read more)

Stay clear from this company, I went in the Warrington branch yesterday to buy some Euro's, the girl behind the counter told me the exchange rate was 1.02 and it is the same everywhere, I bought £500 woth of Euro's and got 510.
I then went straight into town where the lowest exchange rate I could find was 1.07 and the highest 1.11, I basically lost out on 40 Euro's, they robbed me of £30, I went in to complain and they offered me £370 for my Euro's that I had only bought 18 hours previous,... (read more)

I have booked quite a few holidays with www.holidayhypermarket.co.uk safe in the knowledge that as they are part of the Thomson/FirstChoice (TUI) group if anything went wrong my money was safe. It's sad that people complain without thought. Websites that sell holidays from other operators are sometimes at the mercy of outside forces. I have my own unrelated site and customers type in the wrong phone number or email address so I can't get in touch, they also don't read booking terms and... (read more)

We were promised a family orientated resort, but Festival Village was dirty, and unless you slept in reception, we were not told about the 90 Euro room deposit. After all, First Choice had already got over £3600. There are too many bad points to list, but First Choice customer service will be hearing from us. (read more)

This was the first time we used Holiday Hypermarket, and I was so impressed. We wanted a last minute deal that was hassle free, and we got one. The girl who I spoke to was really helpful, and she gave me lots of advice on where to eat and where to stay away from. She even gave me directions on how to get to certain places to make our trip easier, and everything she told us was spot on. We stayed in beautiful apartments, and can honestly say, for the money we paid it was more than value for... (read more)

I booked my holiday in Turkey with Holiday Hypermarket. I found a few holidays on their website and rang up. The girl I spoke to gave me some pretty good advice about the place I went to (Kusadasi). I went to Ephesus, and I thought it was amazing. I would probably book with them again.
They do have loads of different holidays on the Holiday Hypermarket web site, so it's worth checking. (read more)

This is the first time that I have booked with Holiday Hypermarket and I was very impressed!
I haven't been on the holiday yet, but I was so happy with the service that I had to comment.
The web site was very helpful and easy to use.
The lady at Reservations has to be the most helpful lady I have ever spoken to. She was efficient and called me back on several different occasions as promised. She was friendly, helpful and kind.
I found that the holiday was very good value for money, for... (read more)

We went to Fort Kinaird First Choice Holiday Hypermarket in January 2005 to book our family summer holiday. We stated we would like an all inclusive. The travel agent we sat with then proceeded to advise us that they had some amazing deals for all inclusives to the Dominican Republic. So we asked to see and hear more info on this holiday, the girl then showed us the holiday in the brochure which was a brand new hotel, and all the extras such as a junior suite for the family which has a...
