“Great Flexibility ”

written by MikeJamesSussex on 12/07/2022

Love to put together our own holiday, not limited by package deals. TR means we can choose dates, flights, accommodation and transfers all in one place. Easy to use and great value! Have used many times before and will do so again.

“Would book with them again always reliable and helpful”

written by Calabonaiscool on 08/07/2022

Have used travel republic many times. They efficiently refunded our money when holiday cancelled during covid so happily used them again. When our return flight was cancelled a week before departure this time they went over and beyond to sort for us. We didn’t have to do any of the sorting. Very grateful to them for the pressure being taken of us. Will definitely recommend and use again without hesitation

“Customer service ”

written by geo33 on 26/06/2022

Only a couple of weeks before travel, got an email saying our flights had changed, significantly! After reviewing our options, we were able to book different flights that were almost spot on with our original booking, however! It was myself that informed customer service of the flights we ended up booking, they hadn't initially offered them as an option. Sunexpress are a new airline, but they are jointly owned by Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, no issues with them at all. Taxi transfer? Don't book through the agent, much cheaper just to turn up and jump in a taxi, although agree a price before you get in! Its only 20 minutes to Lara Beach, so should be no more than 15 Euros.

“Fast, easy, affordable ”

written by on 20/05/2022

Looked around on different websites to find a decent deal for a last minute budget holiday. This was the most reliable with the best reviews. I only had one issue with my flights not being confirmed, but it was quickly resolved by the customer service team with no issues. It was the first overseas holiday I had ever organized and taken myself, so I was sceptical about literally every detail. The holiday went smoothly, all information from this website was clear and direct and I was given plenty of receipts and updates. Only issue I had was my return flights, but that was entirely to do with the company I flew with, and not to do with travel republic. However I was grateful for all the confirmation pages/emails and receipts for my flight given to me from this website, as it made the ordeal go smoother with lots of back up evidence incase of emergency.

Flight was Cancelled was not informed by Email, when I went to check in on the airlines website message said flight changed to 11am check in for 9am, the time at the time was 9am and we was having breakfast at the hotel impossible to get to the airport on time, called the airline they informed me the flight was changed on the 1st April 2022 and they Emailed Travel Republic to let them know, I don't understand how comes our flight was changed more than three weeks before we even travelled and no one let us know by Email or phone call not happy with the service we received this time been using Travel Republic for more than Ten years now.

“Great prices, but slow contact centre”

written by Coyle216 on 20/04/2022

Great prices and hassle free, but if you have a issue you have to email as couldn't get through by phone. Takes days to get back to you. But once they do it's sorted straight away. All in all I think travel Republic is great

“Too little too late.”

written by 61O'Neill on 14/04/2022

Had to phone travel Republic 2 days before start of holiday because check in details for flights not sent. Waited over an hour to get through.eventually got sorted but limited seats left on plane.ended up behind some bouncing child screaming right through flight. Not a good start to holiday. Also we were charged approx 60 euro for taking our cases on return easy jet flight.felt a bit robbed as we were able to take the same size cases on other flights.make sure you check size guide before you go.

“Awful booking experience. Hotel was awful.”

written by Jo888 on 25/01/2022

Hotel room was in desperate need of decorating. Paint peeling off walls, lots of mould on walls, extractor fan in bathroom not working causing terrible condensation in bedroom. Shower leaks under bathroom door into bedroom. Safe was not fixed and could be picked up in one hand and taken away. No hair dryer or tea making facilities. Breakfast was in a different hotel. Gym was not open.

I do not believe they have a standard form. Go to their "contact us" or FAQ section of their website. In my experience you will not get a satisfactory resolution and this service, or lack of service, should be factored into your decision making when booking with them. Unless you are prepared to use small claims or other legal process there is minimal resolution or escalation

No, my holiday was in Sicily. But beware that the ATOL cover is far more limited than you might expect. In my case, I got no support from Travel Republic over pricy, more or less compulsory, add-ons when I picked up a hire car that I paid for through Travel Republic under the impression that it was all-inclusive. It seems there's a loophole where ATOL covers aspects that Travel Republic directly provides but other aspects are not covered, where TR acts as an agent, not a provider. I've no idea how you'd know what was covered. So, beware what you buy from or through TR.

This happened to me however I got told at the arriving airport & got put in a less superior hotel. This ruined my holiday & when it came to complaining upon return we discovered that because the hotel is booked through a different company & not through travel Republic, this was not covered by ABTA....I was so shocked as I did everything through them. I won't book with them again - they're customer service was appauling.

Whilst on a driving holiday in Sicily I was contacted by my daughters in the UK informing me that a hotel had apparent building issues and that we would need alternative accommodation. Having this kind of hassle whilst on holiday and expected to resolve on pay as you go phones especially when Travel Republic have an automated phone queuing system was "not fun" The lesson I learned is that they are only a booking agent, if you have a problem you have to deal directly with the hotel (this I found out afterwards, is in their terms and conditions). are the same. My advice to avoid this is to use a larger company and use price match to get Travel Republic rates.

I have being using them for years & have never had a problem, even when we had to change a holiday because of illness, they have always given an excellent service.

This has never happened to me with Travelrepublic. I would guess it's an unfortunate one-off situation and shouldn't put you off going with them in the future. It's a no frills service but as such the prices are very competitive and it's a good way of going abroad relatively cheaply.

BE VERY CAREFUL! They ruined my holiday in Turkey,sent me to a resort I didn't want go to because (they said) the hotel was overbooked although they sent me confirmation it was booked.They will take your money and lie to you.

You can book one from the arrivals lounge at the airport, although we booked it online. Our flight arrived late at night and the coach took about 1.5-2 hours to get to Praya de Rocha, it goes all around the houses and as its dark there is nothing to look at. It was relatively inexpensive, but slow. The following year we hired a car. This didn't cost a great deal more, the journey was about 45 mins and we had the car for the week. (good fuel usage policy as well)

I booked my shuttle bus through Travel Republic. I have used this service twice and it is very efficient. The bus companies were called Green Bus and A2B. I believe A2B have the concession for the whole of Faro Airport. In October 2013 I travelled to Ferragudo with A2B and their office was positioned at the far end on the right as you walk into the arrivals lounge after baggage collection. We travelled to our destination in a private car with one other couple but on our return it was a 6/8 seater minibus. Our previous visit had been to Olus D'Agua near Albufeira and was by minibus in both directions. Hope this is helpful.
Report this content jennyliannebiggs Written on: 08/06/2015
If you want a shuttle bus then use resort hoppa not A2B. However be prepared to wait at arrivals for up to 45 mins. It will take about 2 hours. The best option is a private transfer. A bit more expensive but does go direct. I always use private transfer after nearly missing a flight back due to having to wait at each hotel for other pick ups.

Hi, I was a little wary at first as have never heard of them, but I took a chance and would gladly do it again! They were well priced and very professional. I normally only ever go for high street travel agents, but as I was travelling with my 6 girl mates, they were all keen to keep the price low. Everything went smoothly and they were readily available on the phone with helpful staff that answered all of my questions. Hope this helps. :)

I have booked with TR a couple 2 or 3 times, the last one being a holiday to Minorca in October, we booked a week on a self catering basis and we had booked and paid. We were going for a specific reason and it was out of season over there and a couple of weeks before we went we were informed the apartment owner had decided to close early and our apartment was no longer available. T.R sorted us out a 4 * hotel on a B&B basis, they gave us a couple of options and the hotel we went for was excellent, and a lot for expensive that the s/catering money we had paid. So, in summary, the dealings I have had with T.R would encourage me to use them again, I used then initially on the recommendation of a friend and I have be delighted with their service.

There are no guarantees on the Internet, ever, and I'd always consider paying by credit card, not debit card, as that gives you a way of reclaiming lost money. But to answer your specific question, Travel Republic have been around for years; I use them several times a year and have never had a problem or felt unsafe. Many hundreds of thousands - if not millions - of people have used their service; they have trading relationships with all the major companies in the travel industry. While they may not always provide a perfect holiday, I've never heard accusations of NOT being as safe as houses. Also, if you Google "travel republic reviews" you'll see what others have said about them.

We travelled to London for a city break through Travelrepublic about 6 months ago and we could not have been happier with the service. It was a very safe and secure way to book, and they took care of every detail. I don't have experience of booking a longer holidsy through the company, but they were certainly very efficient with what they did for us. I was also able to speak to someone over the phone to go over finer details of the trip, so that was also quite reassuring, as it can sometimes feel like a leap of faith when you are just clicking buttons! Have a great holiday!

I can only speak from personal experience but have used Travel Republic for several years now and never had a problem with any aspect of the holiday. I have booked not only hotels and flights but also car parking and transfers, all without a problem so I would recommend. If you mean 'safe' as in if the company was to cease trading then you are as safe with them as with any other holiday provider who is ABTA and ATOL bonded.

We booked with them last year a flight, private transfer and hotel. I was nervous about arriving at the airport without a rep but the directions to the private transfer office were easy to follow and they were expecting us, despite our flight being delayed. Much better than booking a package and traveling by coach with a rep rabbiting on.

It worked for us , last year when we travelled to Spain, booking a car, room and flight, which you had to do individually through the site, what I would say is they are / were not a Travel Agent IATA with guarantees , the staff were very pleasant as we had an IT issue which they sorted out , and everything including the holiday worked out very well, competative, and a few choices that others did not offer - its all down to you and what your looking for and how you holiday.

Our party of 4 adults used Travel Republic in June 2013 for a 5 night trip to Barcelona and everything was handled very efficiently. Prompt email confirmation of flights and hotel bookings, complete with ATOL certificate. I had reason to telephone Travel Republic with a query about passport information for entering Spain and they handled the query straight away, no problem about getting through. All in all a positive experience, and a well established and safe company to deal with.

You don't. Booking with Travel Republic is a risk. My last experience was being left in a Rome hotel lobby without a reservation; a reservation I booked through travel republic. Using their helpline was no use either - they said they would sort the booking out & then went home for the weekend without sorting anything. Managed to book & pay for another room myself - lucky there was a vacancy. Took me 6 months of them claiming no responsibility to get a refund. TR are agents only & seemingly claim no responsibility for any errors or foul ups. USE THEM AT YOUR RISK.

I used travel republic twice last year, booked both holidays 24 hours before departure. They give you all the information you need, just need a printer to print all your documentation off.

Travel republic are very safe. I booked a holiday with them last year. I knew what hotel ,dates and flights I needed and got exactly what I wanted including transfers to and from the hotel to the airport. Some people say that they don't want the hassle of building up their own package deal but in my opinion there is no hassle. It was so straight forward to build and even managed to save me money which companies which offer"the whole package"couldn't . I would definitely book through travel republic again. What could be more appealing than booking exactly what you want and save money. Hope you find this helpful.

You are ATOL protected. Everything is done via Internet and email so the prices are good. If you are comfortable using Internet and email then you will be fine. If you want to take the 'belt and braces' approach, then use your credit card to pay. You have to pay an extra 2.5% (if I remember correctly) to pay using your credit card but you'll enjoy the extra protection it affords (payment needs to be over £100.00 to get the credit card protection by the way). I was a bit wary the first time too but I would happily use them again.

I have used Travel Republic many times and have never had a problem. They have a low deposit room reservation service with the balance bring claimed automatically nearer the time of travel and the system has always been flawless. Add to this competitive prices and a web site which incorporates extensive customer feedback for their listed hotels, as well as extensive local information. I always look at them first, and I have never had a "dud" booking with them.

Travelrepublic are a well established and reputable on-line travel company.i had an issue 4 years ago when a no-frills airline called kiss flights went bust and travelrepublic sent me a text alert at work,thus enabling me to rebook flights before prices went through the roof.they were most helpful in making a claim for a refund.most companies nowadays charge a small fee,usually £5 for atol protection.they are not always the cheapest,but certainly competitive and most reliable.

great service,beats most other sites operators i have tried over the last few years.ideal if you are flexible in your dates as you can choose the best rate for flights.Download all the vouchers you need depending on whether you just book flight,hotel or the complete package including parking and transfers.will be using them again this May,have only had a small problem concerning using a debit card which for whatever reason the wemsite couldnt accept so ended up using credit card with credit charge applied.Would recommend them as i have already done with friends.

no problems at all, even when i had problems with my flight provider it was all sorted out really quickly, the vouchers were easy to understand and everything matched up at the other end, accomodation, transfers etc. They also send timely reminders for due dates to pay which is helpful and everything is booked and confirmed at more or less the same time.

If anything goes wrong with your booking Travel Republic will not help you, they refuse to take any responsibility. I had this experience with them last year. If you have a problem with any part of the booking they will tell you to sort it yourself as they only act as agents

It was a safe as houses for us, online it said our documents would be emailed within a week or so, but in fact they arrived within seconds, it was that fast - from the moment I pressed "pay" to having all my travel documents was 5 minutes (that's the time it took for me to print them!). Bite the bullet - go with it - they are safe and do know what they are doing.

Do NOT touch this Company with you hard earned money. There is a litany of complaints against Travel Republic, on various travel forums on the internet, look these up for yourself, I wish I had. They phoned me and left an answerphone message at 5.20PM the night before we were due to fly. When I received the message their office was closed and their website "down". They had changed our chosen accomodation to an alternative that had been described as a "Glorified Hostel" in travel reviews. We lost £800 in flight and other expenses and they virtually laughed at us when we asked for some refund. To my horror, I then read reviews that made the same complaint about them over and over, too many to be a coincidence. They were dismissive and rude on the telephone and their final words were, "Read the small print and go ahead and sue". I have made many reviews of holidays on various sites and I always try to be measured and look at both sides of the argument, however my honest advice to you and any others is DON'T TOUCH TRAVEL REPUBLIC..! You can research them yourself on the internet if you don't want to take my advice.

I use travel republic for accommodation at least twice each year and have always found them very reliable . the booking process is simple and when I once made an error with an online booking the problem was quickly sorted out by a very helpful lady over the phone . I would never hesitate to use them

Booking flights and insurance are OK and comparatively good prices, e.g. our Ryanair flights were the same price had we bought them directly with Ryanair. Travel Republic let us down badly on car hire - they grossly misrepresented what was included by lying about inclusive car excess insurance and describing fuel charges for a full tank of fuel as being slightly higher than at the pump, when in fact it was charged as more than double per litre than at a filling station. Book flights with Travel Republic BUT DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR CAR HIRE SCHEME.

Like others I have used Travel republic many times now, both for UK hotels and holidays abroad. They always seem very competitive and often in UK hotels have breakfast included and still cheaper than other companies with no breakfast option. When traveling abroad the paper work they send is very clear and I have had no problems. One observation you might want to note is that when abroad there is no holiday rep that you can go to should you have a problem and for some people that may be important. Holidays are ABTA protected

Our holiday to Algarve last September was first time we used Travel Republic. Flights were with Ryanair, car hire with local hire firm, hotel through Travel Republic. All communications were excellent. Travel Republic are members of ABTA and ATA and are ATOL protected..for extra protection we used credit crad payment. Of course you are not booking a tradional package holiday as each booking...flight, car if you wish or tansfers and hotel are separate bookings...and there is no local rep. If you prefer tradional package holiday with support and assistance of a holiday rep and all local transport sorted as part of the package then I would recommend high street travel agents....but if you are travel savy and want to make good saving and have more choice and like to look after yourself then give them a go.

Don't worry! I have been booking with them for the last 10 years and we have stayed in about 30 or more different hotels in the UK, Spain, France, Portugal. Only once, on a French/Spanish driving tour from the UK did we arrive at a hotel and we didn't get what we had booked. That problem turned out that the restaurant was closed, it was the end of the season and we couldn't get dinner in the evening! In the end the owner of the hotel managed to offer us something, even though it came out of the micro-wave oven!!! I have no hesitation in recommending Travel Republic to anyone, in fact, I have just this week finished booking hotels in Spain for a 35 night driving tour in September! So don't worry, go for it. Hope this helps?

I have used them a few times and they have always been good. But as with all travel agents make sure they are members of ABTA and have an AYOL number. This will ensure that if things go wrong you are protected.

I used them twice last year and have no regrets about this whatsoever. At first I was like you: a little hesitant about using an unknown brand. The deal that they got for us on a short stay in Valencia was so good that I kept thinking that there had to be a catch, but the hotel delivered everything we hoped for at a fantastic price. It was the same again when we took another trip a couple of months later. Based on my experience I'd say go for it!

Beware: many parts of their holiday elements are NOT protected by ATOL or ABTA (it's in the small print) and I was ripped off over car hire in Siciliy. Travel Republic gave no support beyond forwarding my complaint to the car hire agents ( another go-between) and after 28 days and an appeal they firmly told me the case was closed. They were completely unsupportive. The flight and hotel were fine. So, as long as it goes smoothly, OK. But don't expect support from them or ABTA if things go wrong.
