"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 my traveling companion - him of the dubious passport pic agreed that a trip to New York would be a great idea. With some trepidation I started to look for ..." Read review

Upside down, and round, round

AdvantagesCheap and fast (the service, not me)

DisadvantagesNot 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 folk at British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, and Aer Lingus amongst others. Why is this good? It seems that these full service carriers have overcapacity and ..." Read review

Booking with opodo.co.uk - worst support I have seen before and o

AdvantagesHotels were booked

Disadvantagesdisgusting customer support, unexpected charges at hotel check-in

"...My own opinion is that opodo.co.uk now in my own black list of booking sites. For justice I will add, 7 months later Opodo has returned our 200 USD to credit card (even a little more due to currency conversion) . The receipt with charge description and hotelís stamp obtained in the hotel has helped me to convince Opodo and their partner that we really have paid money for citizenship change in the booking. BTW, when Iíve received the receipt in ..." Read review

Opodo - avoid like the plague

AdvantagesCheap but not worth the hassle

DisadvantagesSelling flights that they're not licenced to sell. Terrible customer service. No 24 hour helpline.

"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 but I booked through Opodo because I (wrongly) trusted them. The day before I was due to travel they rang me up and said my flight had been cancelled (!!!). ..." Read review

Opodo no no

AdvantagesLots of airlines, lots of destinations

DisadvantagesNever 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 have just booked my latest holiday (cant wait!) and have once again found that Opodo's flight options were both indirect and expensive. The website ..." Read review
