“Shocking Transfer on Arrival.”

Written on: 23/06/2015 by Ramage12 (1 review written)

On arrival we searched for our transfer company. I never realised there was a transfer voucher but I had papers showing all my booking information etc from travel republic. After asking a few stalls if they could help I was referred to the travel republic desk. After explaining I had no voucher he said i was at the wrong stall after apparently going through his paper and not seeing my name. I left and seeked help elsewhere and I was pointed in the direction of the same travel republic desk. At… Read Full Review

“surprised”

Written on: 20/06/2015 by bazann (1 review written)

We were surprised to have to pay £40 to cancel a trip to Bournemouth at least 3 months in advance. Everyone we have spoken to has never had this experience. Although I was eventually told we could use it towards another booking… Read Full Review

“Texting and E.mails”

Written on: 20/06/2015

I've used travel Republic Lloyd of times in recent years and have been generally happy with the service, except for one practice TR inflicts on its customers! I'm talking about the ordeal of your return pick up time. Trying to get through to the local call centre is a nightmare with the call often cut off half way through the call for no apparent reason! And leavening you no wiser as to when the pick up time is. Haven't TR ever heard of the smart phone that can receive E.mails and even texts?… Read Full Review

“Value For Money......”

Written on: 18/06/2015 by Drcue (1 review written)

I like using Travel Republic, as I have used them many times. Always have great deals! Only problem this time was that we couldn't find the transfer desk on arrival and therefore had to get a cab, which cost an additional €40 each way! :-(… Read Full Review

“Car Hire/Accomodation instructions”

Written on: 27/04/2015 by Wheats (1 review written)

We had used Travel Republic before, with a hire car, but had no instructions where to find Europcar. It was only after asking at the in-terminal car desks, that we discovered it was just outside the terminal. Instructions to the villa (in this case) was nothing more than GPS coordinates,..not much use without GPS. When we got to the villa estate, we had no idea which was supposed to be ours. After appealing to a maintenance man on site, he called his office, and then took us to a villa and let… Read Full Review

“Cancelled Flight! and Car Hire Trauma!!!”

Written on: 12/04/2015 by Kelley489 (1 review written)

As our flight was cancelled because of the French air traffic control strike. We were advised to fly to Malaga instead of Barcelona and get a train. We paid over £40 to transfer our car and collect it in Malaga because we would not arrive in time for the overnight train. Once we arrived it took over two hours to find the car as we could not access the email voucher and the office in the UK was closed! We finally left Malaga in a thunderstorm after midnight having paid extra for the car and… Read Full Review

“Misleading Booking Confirmation”

Written on: 22/03/2015 by EricandEdwina (3 reviews written)

We booked a holiday to Hurghada, Egypt. Knowing what Egyptian airports are like we booked private transport to the hotel, and the booking confirmation stated that we would be met in the arrivals hall (as most other passengers were. This didn't happen. Our courier was outside the airport and it took ages to find him amid the chaos as he was dealing with another customer and not displaying the sign with our names on. Less experienced travellers could easily have been duped into taking an… Read Full Review

The majority of the interaction was very good, but when I tried to change dates at the last minute, I felt you could have done better - even if you weren't able to extend the timing, the information would have been useful. I have put the details on the hotel review; I didn't know I would be offered an opportunity to comment on your performance… Read Full Review

“Booking not same as we booked on Line”

Written on: 02/02/2015 by Treats42 (1 review written)

We booked B&B at The Village Swansea for 3 couples for 31.1.15 but when we went down for breakfast we were told we only booked Room only. We phoned Travel republic from Hotel but they said we had only booked Room only, Why would we do this when we wanted B&B ? We know that we clicked on line for B&B. So we think that because it was for 3 rooms you didn't have enough rooms at the offer price for B&B so you just did room only!!. We always have used Travel Republic before but were disappointed on… Read Full Review

“Hotel didn't receive our payment quickly.”

Written on: 11/01/2015

We made 3 bookings through TR and in all three cases the hotel we stayed at was not notified quickly that we had booked and paid. Eventually sorted out, after several days, and several phone calls though - and hotel wanted us to sign to pay if TR payment did not arrive. Suggest that TR double check that payments made by customers to the hotel companies Med Hotels and hotels4u etc are passed onto the booked hotels speedily. Having said that, the prices were good value… Read Full Review
