“delivered to dock for a ferry that did not exist”

Written on: 05/02/2016 by Kirbyca202 (1 review written)

6 holidaymakers of which 5 are pensioners were delivered to a very small dock on Rhodes to pick up a ferry to Tilos. We were informed by the captain of a day trip boat that there had not been a ferry from that dock at all in 2015.Two phone calls to the Olympic office eventually arranged taxis to an hotel. There we were handed a letter stating there would be a ferry the following day from the port of Rhodes. The hotel had no accommodation vouchers so after more phone calls a very reluctant local… Read Full Review

“Never again”

Written on: 13/10/2015 by juliant57 (1 review written)

We booked our holiday through Olympic holidays to Mykonos. The holiday and hotel were fantastic, Olympic holidays were a total rip off. We booked our holiday and decided to upgrade and have the gold package for £160. This gave us the use of the executive lounge, a bottle of sparkling wine, a basket of fruit and private transfers to and from the airport. We got to the airport with more than 3 hours to spare to use the executive lounge,we got through the nightmare of a check in with just 30 mins… Read Full Review

We have decided we would never book our flights through Olympic Holidays ever again, we booked our holiday in March 2015 , we knew the hotel we wanted and we knew the times of flights we DID NOT wan, we left the travel agents very happy, we had the hotel we liked the flight times were good, we even booked & paid the hotel for the night our flight to avoid us having to travel early in the morning on the strength of this we also booked and paid our evening meal and breakfast.

“Avoid booking with Olympic - use an operator that cares”

Written on: 21/06/2015 by Hahnpw324 (1 review written)

Booked a boat trip and it was thundering / lightning on the day. Expected it to be cancelled but no word. Went to the beach and ALL of the local operators had packed up and left for the day. However Olypmic insisted on running their trip. Offered us an alternative trip on the afternoon we were due to retun home and seemed to think that was ok. We lost our money as a result. Local reps not interested in helping us. Just interested in getting their commission (the trip was more expensive than… Read Full Review

“Fantastic in resort service ”

Written on: 05/06/2015 by JT1941 (1 review written)

My son became ill in Turkey & luckily was travelling with Olympic - within an hour of me calling their UK office as a concerned parent I got a phone call from the resort manager from Olympic who was at the hospital with my son & let me speak to him. I am 100% impressed with this & would like to thank all the staff concerned. I have travelled a few times with Olympic also & they are great value for money & obviously have fantastic customer service. This was in Cslis Beach, Turkey - fantastic… Read Full Review

“HOTEL WAS OVERBOOKED FOR OUR HONEYMOON”

Written on: 05/11/2014 by Naomi_Lesniewska (1 review written)

This was the first time we'd travelled with Olympic holidays and will certainly be our last. We booked our honeymoon with them in July and were thrilled with what promised to be a fantastic two week break in beautiful Rhodes. The holiday set us back £3,500, and had been paid for by our family and friends as a fabulous wedding present. The resort was a 5* accommodation, boasted fantastic evening entertainment and looked stunning. After the stress of wedding planning (and a mini-disaster on… Read Full Review

“Terrible ”

Written on: 26/10/2014 by Janiyah471 (1 review written)

We booked a holiday with Olympic to stay at the Primasol Ionian Sun in Corfu, an all inclusive we specifically asked for a hotel that was quiet and of a decent standard, the hotel was horrendous when we arrived. I read the poor reviews prior to leaving about Olympic holidays I was horrified by the way we have been treated, it was meant to be a romantic get away. The hotel was filthy stained carpets, insects every where, hard old beds they couldn't even give us a double bed! We slept on old hard… Read Full Review

“Poor Customer Service”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by RandallGrace (1 review written)

We booked a family holiday with Olympic, which was not cheap by any means. Everything appeared to be fine until we got to the airport, they had sub-contracted the flight to Easyjet, but when we checked-in they advised they had no information for us and we may not get to board the return flight as our seats may have been sold. Despite entering the API information on Olympic's system, this was not transferred to Easyjet. They then allocated seats where a 3 year old child was separated from his… Read Full Review

“No Customers service on evening and weekends ”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by Patiencer337 (1 review written)

This is by far the most useless company i have ever travelled with, we missed our flight and there absolutely no body in the Airport to talk to , we were given a telephone numbers that says they are only open Monday to Friday , there is no emergency number . we just had to purchase a new flight from another company. The problem with this company is the fact that you will never get any help from them if you miss your fight and it is impossible to get hold of them on evenings and weekends as they… Read Full Review

“Poor travel arrangement to Paxos”

Written on: 02/09/2014 by terrycity (1 review written)

If going to Paxos be careful with flight times as ferries are not frequent and it is easy to lose a day at the start of your holiday because of this. To make matters worse our flight home has been brought forward by 8 hours so we lose another day at the end of the holiday. 12 days holiday for the price of 14 is not a good deal. Olympic themselves do not seem to give a monkeys about this. A shame because Paxos is lovely… Read Full Review

“Olympic Holiday Transfer”

Written on: 23/08/2014

Had a week in Kos in June. Olympic brochure advertised transfer as 50 mins. On arrival it took around 1.5 hrs but going back to airport we were picked up so early that we missed dinner and then had to sit for 2 hrs on a very hot coach whilst we picked passengers up at various points. We were only around 20k from airport. When we wrote and complained they were not interested. Never again… Read Full Review

“Hurrah for package holidays...”

Written on: 03/08/2014 by pameyd (1 review written)

Just returned from a 2-week holiday in Zante with Olympic Holidays and, what a bargain. I paid £253 for everything - flight from Birmingham, transfers to and from the resort (and with a REP to boot), accommodation and baggage! It was just like the good old days when holidays weren't DIY. The place I went to was the best out of the 4 holidays I've had in Kalamaki. I stayed at the Dyonisis and Tonia apartments which were right in the middle of the resort - quite a long way from the beach (I'm… Read Full Review
