“Would never use Travel Republic again”

Written on: 15/09/2014

I booked the flight hotel and transfers through Travel Republic and it was confirmed immediately and I printed off the vouchers. Two days before I was due to fly they rang me at nigh time to tell me the hotel was overbooked and they were putting me in another hotel. I did not want this hotel as it was a family hotel and I had booked an adult only hotel. I had found another hotel that was the same rating and an adult only hotel so I told them I would have that one instead. As it was more… Read Full Review

“Rip-Off Republic”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by Stevendes (1 review written)

Avoid using this agent if you think you are using an ABTA registered company. I booked a 4* hotel for 1 month with them. I was given a 0* filthy apartment (NOT a Hotel) I requested another hotel and was charged extra to be put into a 3* hotel !! After lots of complaint letters they still refuse to refund the surcharges..I contacted ABTA and was told that Travel Republic sell the bookings to other agents who are NOT ABTA bonded therefor ther is nothing you can do. So in summary, You pay Travel… Read Full Review

“I would advise anyone thinking of booking ANYTHING...”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by KarleyHutchinson (1 review written)

I would advise anyone thinking of booking ANYTHING with Travel Republic not to. I gave them 3 months notice regarding a hotel cancellation and was charged £40. They claimed it was in the small print..be aware that their small print is very small!!!! They are aggressive and unsympathetic sales people. John Lewis they are not!! Quite clearly the customer for them is always wrong. In a word, DREADFUL… Read Full Review

“Terrible service”

Written on: 24/08/2014 by EmeryMunoz (1 review written)

Dear Travel republic guests, you should know that this agency does not accept any responsibility for the their guests, you can live in a completely different hotel than you ordered. Blue Domes Hotel in Kos island very nice, but we paid for 2 weeks or live only 1 week at this hotel, the other one we spent in Norida beach Hotel. Below I will give you my correspondence with the agency. /////////////When we are arrived to Blue Domes Hotel the reception lady tell us that they don’t have any… Read Full Review

“Poor Attention to Detail - Cost me for their error”

Written on: 23/08/2014 by Fletcher11 (1 review written)

When checking in Travel Republic had not used my surname correctly as they had included my middle name as well. This resulted in me not being able to check in online and having to pay £70 (£35 for the both of us) as the fine when I was at the front desk. This lack of attention to detail is extremely concerning as it also delayed me being able to go through security as my names on all the boarding cards were wrong and I was late for the boarding of the plane. Poor show from Travel Republic… Read Full Review

“nightmare from Travel Republic”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by estu (1 review written)

Booked with Travel Republic. Pregnant partner plus 17 month old baby girl in tow, arrived at holiday destination to find the offices shut down, the phone number provided on the booking form was for a private house in the resort (luckily he spoke English and was able to tell me to get lost) but we found another number on the website. This number reached a lady at the right resort name at a reception nearby (we had been dropped at the old reception). The lady who answered the phone spoke very… Read Full Review

“The worst customer relations dept ever,”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Bontwoody (1 review written)

After raising a reasonable complaint with Travel Republic I was repeatedly fobbed off with replies that failed to answer the issues. My initial complaint and 1st reply are shown below I would advise anyone to steer clear of this company. I wish to complain about the transfer that I booked with your company for the 20th July, from the airport at Malta to the Grand Hotel on Gozo. (TRN/8226326)\ \ On exiting the arrivals gate at the airport, there was no one waiting to pick us up. A man did… Read Full Review

“poor transfer service”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by AnnetteCowell (1 review written)

Loved the simplicity of booking the complete holiday package. Felt cheated on the transfer service as we had upgraded the transfers to the premium price paying over £22 each for the return trip (understanding a taxi cost c.30Euro) and was provided the same service that our friends paid £11 each for. We had to wait for 30-40 minutes for a bus although the service was sold as a speedy shuttle with a meet and greet service. We were even told the evening before collection that our pick up time… Read Full Review

“BUYER BEWARE”

Written on: 12/08/2014 by PJJ2 (1 review written)

Travel Republic are only booking agents, your holiday will be booked with travel operators who are likely to be not ABTA registered. Therefore in the event of a claim do not expect any help from Travel Republic or indeed ABTA. It appears Travel Republic's responsibility to the customer ends when they take your money. We experienced this on a recent booking made with this company… Read Full Review

“Hotel Double Booked with 4 days to go”

Written on: 04/08/2014 by wobblywibblyweb (1 review written)

I have flights and accommodation booked with TR to Corfu for my family of five since October 2013. With 4 days to go to my holiday Travel Republic kindly inform me the accommodation is double booked. They can't offer me a similar alternative and there doesn't seem to be much available on the island. Currently the only thing on their site is £2000 more than we paid. Wife is in bits and three kids are going to be mighty disappointed. The call centre left us on hold until the lines shut at 20:00… Read Full Review

NEVER use this company. I arrived at Sharm El Sheikh airport having booked this hotel 7 months prior to be advised there were no family rooms, i booked 5* having spent months researching the best hotel for my family.....the rep stated they found a much bigger & better hotel for us & put us there....24 hours into the holiday & we discovered its 4* & was horrendous. Numerous complaints were made abroad & at home, and guess what, no refund...!!!! I contacted ABTA who advised THEY ARE NOT EVEN… Read Full Review

“They left us stranded and lied to us!!!”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by marshaaldridge (1 review written)

Do not use Travel Republic. Their customer service is less then useful. their in-resort resolution team are liars! We arrived in Spain on Saturday and were put in a room that was completely not in line with what was advertised. No balcony, and not big enough to even accommodate two suitcases - one had to be unpacked in the bathroom! Our friends who booked with Expedia and paid 1/3 less for the hotel, were in massive rooms with big balconies overlooking the sea. We spoke to the hotel who… Read Full Review

“Watch the small print (£1:00 deposit) and they don't...”

Written on: 20/07/2014

I have a booking for a gatwick hotel and now see it cheaper on other sites, although they advertise £1:00 deposit if you cancel they hit you for £40:00 unlike other sites like Bookings they email you back and if under cut make good the difference. A learning lesson with Travel Republic you may have caught me for a few pounds this time, enjoy it because it won't happen again… Read Full Review

“Do not use, poor poor poor”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by SerenityBentley131 (1 review written)

I unfortunately have had to cancel an upcoming holiday, this includes cancelling a hotel booked through Travel Republic. What a long winded stid process, I have been waiting for almost a week now for them to confirm my cancellation. Having just rung them, and got someone useless (not her fault, obviously only allowed to follow a script) I am still non the wiser about when or if my hotel booking will be cancelled. Another hotel I had to cancel through Expedia, simple, log in, press a button… Read Full Review

“Not Reliable - every chance the hotel will be cancelled”

Written on: 17/07/2014

I have booked a few holidays with Travel Republic. Some have gone to plan but the few which I had problems with were handled really badly by TR customer services. I booked a large group family holiday 2 years ago to Algarve and, after all the details were confirmed and paid for, I was contacted by them to say a mistake was made in the price. The difference I was asked to pay was substantial so we chose another hotel. Last year my daughter booked with TR and received a similar treatment. At… Read Full Review

“Charged me £1166 to cancel my journey 2014”

Written on: 03/07/2014

Booked a journey with Travel Republic for July 2014. Ten hours later my hospital telephoned to say I should keep that week free as I may need tests. So I cancelled my journey with Travel Republic using their on-line system and by fax (I like to keep it in writing) I noticed that the full amount of the journey had come out of my Paypal account and my bank account!!!! Through Paypal I have been told that Travel Republic will only refund £1901.90 out of a total of £3067 So therefore they are… Read Full Review
