Cheap and fast (the service, not me)

Not guaranteed cheapest

opodo - it reads the same upside down as it does right way up. I found this amusing. I should get out more. With Opodo I can get out more, because I can fly cheaper. Pretty good huh? OK so Opodo is just another on line flight search and booking site, but this one is brought to you by the good...

Opodo.co.uk is a travel site set up by a variety of european airlines, including British Airways. Having taken the rather daring step to attend the wedding of a very good online friend in Pittsburgh the hunt was on for a cheap airfare to the US, matters were further complicated by the fact that...

On this spring I’ve booked two hotels in Egypt with opodo.co.uk. I have mixed fillings about this booking system. First of all I want to mention that they have disgusting customer support. For any enquires that were sent using their web site, they have provided answers more than one week later or...

READ THIS - Very important . I would never use opodo again after the trouble I had after booking a flight with them. I booked a flight from London to Kathmandu three months before travelling. I used an internet comparison site and the cheapest company for the flight I booked wasn't actually Opodo...

“Opodo no no”

published 19/03/2005

Lots of airlines, lots of destinations

Never seems to come up with a good deal!

I have had a lot of comments regarding this review, mainly defending Opodo and syaing its great! I still cant see why people rate it. See my recent experience at the end! I am a long serving internet flight booker and must have used, or at least tried to use all the major net booking services. I...

“Warning to travellers”

None

unreliable, unsympathetic, unfriendly, unhelpful

I write this opinion to warn others of the difficulties they might face when using online booking agents Opodo. I was after a return flight from Edinburgh to London and used Opodo after seeing their adverts. The online system was straight forward enough to use and my booking was confirmed twice...

I booked a flight from Birmingham to Brisbane to (see my father at Easter) through Opodo and all was confirmed online with the money going out of my account within 18 hours. That part was easy - I guess spending money always is. However, my father was taken seriously ill at the start of February...

“Book with ease”

published 19/02/2005

ease of use, selections - it's just so easy

None for me as yet

I've used Opodo a few times and whilst they may not be the cheapest (they are not affiliated with the budget airlines), I can always get to my destination, to the airport I want from the airport I want., at a time that is good for me. So if I have to pay a little extra, that's fine by me. Opodo...

“Reliable company”

published 29/09/2004

one of cheapest sites and easy to use

cost of paper ticket

I have written this review couple of months ago but decided to add some more info which may be relevant and useful. The website for Opodo can be reached from www.opodo.com where you choose your location ( UK, France or Germany) or you can just go directly to www.opodo.co.uk. The company is...

“Business Plus”

Excellent range of prices, great search

No airport ticket issue on departure

Opodo is a must for all business travellers. My company has a designated travel agent, not opodo, and we can often knock the price they quote down telling them the opodo price. Last year I was quoted by the company travel agent £250 for a return flight to Amsterdam but found on opodo that by...

Who knows what their confirmation is worth?

Following the 13 March disaster in Japan, I wanted to get my son a ticket out of Japan. I'd used Opodo often for work travel and generally found their service ok for booking flights, so I booked a flight for my son, got their email confirmation and thought no more of it. I got onto an overnight...

Confusing information about pricing and fees

Looking for cheap tickets to Japan, we checked Trip Advisor, which came up with Opodo as the cheapest option. I'd heard of the company, but never used it before, as I usually book flights through Expedia. This time, Expedia were £80 more expensive for the same flight, based on the data provided...

I would strongly advise against using this website to book flights. My reservation was cancelled even though I had recieved a confirmation of booking, and when I queried it I was met with incompetent and unhelpful staff which resulted in me having to re-purchase the flights at a more expensive price. They refused to reinburse me for the difference and claimed it was not their fault. If you have made a booking I suggest that you call them up to make sure it is confirmed even if you have recieved an email confirmation. My overall advise though is do not use this website!!!

I booked an Alitalia flight to Rome for Christmas through Opodo. The flight was overbooked and the queue was "combed" by Alitalia staff placing the Italian passengers on board. By the time I checked in the flight was closed and subequent flights were cancelled due to fog. I was advised to leave the airport and apply for a refund. After an 8 month battle with Opodo they have just told me that Alitalia have recorded me as a "no show" and are refusing to give me any refund. LIARS AND THIEVES

cheap and easy to book

website crashed a couple of times during booking

I am going to visit a friend in Edinburgh and decided flying would be the cheapest and quickest option. Feeling slightly nervous about booking online (will i get my tickets, are my details safe etc), I spent a fortnight prior to booking 'researching' the different companies, prices etc. Opodo...
