“Fake price”

Written on: 04/11/2017 by Jennifera454 (1 review written)

I saw a few great deals which i could not match myself for Cuba at xmas that the HDC showed. I did read the reviews on here but thought i would try them anyhow. I finally agreed a price including the £29 per person online surcharge which they tell you right at the end. They said they would call me back to confirm once it was confirmed. They called me back 15 minutes later, telling me that xmas is expensive (i know) and that the price is £252 more than what was agreed. I could do better… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2017 by Shocking2017 (1 review written)

This company is worse than terrible, STAY AWAY! The holidays advertised are not actually available or booked, even when you make the phone call and pay, despite the lady stating it is all booked and confirmed. Moreover their partners Travelate and Travel23 access your method of payment and book holidays that you did not request or confirm, in order to legally justify accessing your funds. Disgusting company!! The prime focus of their partners was to take monies from an entire family, with… Read Full Review

“Awful spammers”

Written on: 06/09/2017 by abcxyz86771 (1 review written)

Waste of time. When you phone the Barton price is gone and you'll only save £20 at best. And it gets worse. They then send you spam SMS/text measages! Which claim you can stop them, But the texts are from a short code, the number they give is a short code so may be a premium rate text number!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2017 by Darwin1953 (1 review written)

Over the last 3 years or more I have looked at the prices on line having first put all the travel details in ,ie dates etc etc and when I ring up the cost can go up by hundreds of pounds plus the usual baggage and transfers on top of that. I will never ring them ever again and if I go on their web site it will be by accident. My advise is to avoid this company at all costs and my next step is to report them to the otbonldson and any other trades association… Read Full Review

Hello, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Holiday Discount Centre is a price comparison website where travel providers can advertise their offers.

All prices advertised are based on 2 adults sharing and must include compulsory costs, optional extras such as bags and transfers can be booked at an additional fee, if you wish to proceed with the booking without any optional extras you can do so at the price advertised.

We would like to discuss your experience in more detail, please email us.

I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that you have encountered when attempting to book your holiday via our price comparison site. Thanks Vicky

So alls well that ends well...... We thought we had booked a holiday last week to travel from Belfast to Tenerife. The last I spoke to was not the best speaking and having thought it was booked. A few hours after she called me back and told me she had made a mistake and that I need to pay another £178 each......I said no This was meant to be a cheap holiday and I had promised my 5 year old grandson a trip so I tried again. I spoke to a person at Travelate who was really sympathetic and… Read Full Review

“Its all a farce!!!”

Written on: 01/05/2017 by Alyson91 (1 review written)

I am writing this review after spending two full days and numerous phone calls to Holiday Discount Centre to try to book a short weekend break for my stepdaughter. I saw a couple of holidays which were the right dates/times and the right price for her, I phoned up to book and was assured that the price I had seen was the price I would pay. I was booking 3 nights all inclusive at a cost of £104 per person (no transfers as they are hiring a car). I double checked before giving my card details… Read Full Review

Hello,

I'm sorry you have experienced problems with Holiday Discount Centre, and I'm keen to get the bottom of this for you.

As Holiday Discount Centre are a price comparison site - bookings/enquiries are made with the advertiser rather than the website.

Please email me with the name of agency you contacted and I will follow this complaint up with their company directors for you.

Kind Regards

“Not impressed at all. Don't be fooled by advertised prices”

Written on: 09/02/2017 by BigOrmo (1 review written)

Booked a Holiday to Puerto Banus for two adults. Price advertised was something like from £129 p/p bed and breakfast flight included from Belfast. Fair enough got me interested. Phoned and the cost came to £445 after all the fees etc got added. Real joke. Next bit was even better. I agreed and paid foolishly. Flight was to leave early in the morning which suited us tbh. I recieved a call from the company informing me that the flight was no longer available and they would put me on a later… Read Full Review

“Booked all inclusive holiday from Cardiff to Benidorm...”

Written on: 09/01/2017

Booked all inclusive holiday from Cardiff to Benidorm last night, rung me this morning to say indirect flight which would result in a stop over in Barcelona for 7 hrs,or we could pay extra for a direct flight the following day, not acceptable for us but we have now had to pay a £100 cancellation fee, with an arrogant sales rep which resulted in him saying if you can find cheaper good luck with that! Wish I had read all the reviews first, do not use guys!… Read Full Review

“Very hit and miss with pushy sales”

Written on: 07/09/2016 by Kash1016 (1 review written)

This site is good if you get the advertised price but often its restricted to either just a few seats or rooms. It seems that the trick is to lure you in then get someone pushy to give you the same holiday at a higher price. Don't get me wrong it still can be cheap but a 30% or so typical uplift is not a meagre thing. I have booked two holidays from this site and had numerous calls to enquire after others. Let me save you alot frustration and time by recommending that when you give the… Read Full Review

“We used Holiday Discount Centre to look for holidays...”

Written on: 12/08/2016 by StanleyJimenez (1 review written)

We used Holiday Discount Centre to look for holidays and chose one from their site. The holiday was booked through Travel Service Group. After booking the holiday they called back 5 hours later to tell us that the holiday flights may not be any good for us they are not direct, they then offered us other holidays to different locations that we didn't want to go too. This is a sham and I would avoid this company at all costs. They took £500 unauthorised from our account as a so called… Read Full Review

“The price you see is not what you get.”

Written on: 08/08/2016 by KHorne (3 reviews written)

I have used this site three times this month to find a cheap late holiday all with the same results. Your search for what you want and a price appears with a reference number which is as useful as a chocolate teapot in the Sahara desert. On all three occasions the actual price of the holiday was several hundred pounds more than the price quoted on the website. The site is totally misleading people in to ringing and then the person you speak to tries to push you in to booking. The truth… Read Full Review

“Initial advertised holiday not available”

Written on: 03/08/2016 by Sarai1979 (1 review written)

My mother asked to take my child away at half term, she'd found an affordable holiday online with H D C. She checked the dates with me and then proceeded to make the arrangements. They told her that holiday WA no longer available but what about this 1 for a little more. She agreed and paid only to find out it wasn't on the same dates as the last holiday and my child ended up missing 3 days of school! The hotel was no better than ok but the food was dreadful, my mum can usually find something to… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/05/2016 by holidayz (1 review written)

they advertise deals that they cant match, we called for 4 adults sharing a room in September to Malta advertising at £369 each, called up and she said it then was £586 each, she said that the transfers were complimentary but they couldn't have been because when we called up again and spoke to an agent he said it would be £530 with out transfers. They said about extra taxes but didnt tell us what they were for. Don't advertise prices then put them up.. dont shop here!!… Read Full Review

“Not what it says on the tin”

Written on: 02/04/2016 by Angeline266 (1 review written)

I tried to book a deal in Menorca but found the price quoted on the website was no longer available however I could book the same hotel for more than twice the advertised price. The website does not allow you to book online you have to phone and speak to someone at the actual travel company who then tries to sell a completely different deal. I decided not to use  them… Read Full Review

“Website prices are never honoured with HDC.”

Written on: 07/03/2016 by Dougswansea (1 review written)

Looked at HDC to book this year's holiday and found a trip to the Canaries for £400. You cannot book online and have to phone up where you will be put through to an Indian call centre. Then you are told that the holiday you want is no longer available but a similar one can be purchased for a lot more money. I was quoted £675 instead of the original £400. If you refuse then they keep phoning you back with "hard-sell". I tried 3 times and it was the same story each time… Read Full Review
