Want a good deal ? deal with Ebookers

AdvantagesCheap prices, simple website, good features

DisadvantagesForeign call centre

"...phone. FLIGHT BOOKING I then found Ebookers who were offering the most competitive prices and offering the best cashback at the time. I didn't like to book straight away in case prices went down a bit so after they steadied out I snapped the flights up. I booked 2 seats from London Gatwick to Las Vegas then to Orlando returning into Gatwick for £652.90 per person mid august for 15 days. At the time this seemed a real bargain because you the ..."

E-Bookers - I don't think so.

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesErroneous website, language barriers.

"...nice I can say about EBookers - a dear friend once told me you should not say awful things about people unless you can say something nice..... her rule was to say awful things and then say ''but he/she has nice feet''. I cannot even say that. I am wracking my brains to see if there was anything nice.... NO. My review serves to say the attitude of these ''foreign'' personnel when you politely say you cannot understand their language when they ask ..." Read review

Narrowing Down The Deals

Advantagesgood range, good hotel

Disadvantages-

"When booking my most recent holiday, I made sure I literally checked every website possible to find the best deal on accommodation. I like to book my holidays online as I have done it frequently and never have I had any issues. I always check review websites such as tripadvisor.com just to get general feedback as well as Expedia to see what others have said before booking a hotel. I normally check well trusted websites with a good reputation which ..." Read review

great for straight forward bookings

Advantageseasy to use, secure, good backup, cheap flights!

Disadvantagesaccomodation services, booking flights at busy times

"ebookers are one of only two "complete online" travel engines that I truly rank. (There are quite a few good research sites, but this one and expedia.co.uk are the best when it comes to the whole process from flight research through to actual payment). I have used e-bookers successfully for a recent trip to New York. It pays to book ahead and I managed to get good flights (i.e. leaving at night and coming back over night) on British Airways for ..." Read review

When do I need to travel for that cheap flight

AdvantagesFind what you want easily and fast

DisadvantagesYou can miss out on the good deal just as fast

"...Well, I have discovered that ebookers has a page that helps you track down them cheap flight. It is the special's offers page (http://www.ebookers.com/travelagent/specialoffers/specials/) Here they list all the cheapest flights to top destination but also include when the deal is available. e.g. On the page now we have a flight to Boston from London with Iceland air and we can see that you must fly by the 31 March 2001 for £202 but you must book by ..."

ebomb not ebook! The worst online travel agency ever!!

AdvantagesThe flights were cheap...

DisadvantagesThey took my money 3 times. It took forever to get hold of anyone and cancel the flights!

"I'm surprised there aren't more bad reviews about ebookers.com. But then again, there aren't any recent good reviews about them either. Disappointing as I'd hoped their service had improved since I used them for the first and last time in 2006. ebookers have over 20 years industry experience under various different names. Over the last 20 years they have been known as or merged with or been bought with companies such as Cendant, Flightbookers and ..." Read review

Less hassle than face 2 face

AdvantagesEasy to use, Speed of conmirmation, Pricing

DisadvantagesWebpage Design could be better

"...I have found a bargain. The Ebookers homepage is very cluttered and could on first glances seems really difficult to find what you want but is not. There are 6 sections flights, cars, hotels, insurance, holidays and cruises to choose from each section gives a different way of find your particular needs. For those of you who have never used Ebookers booking a holiday has never been easy. There is a 7-stage booking progress bar, which shows you where ..." Read review

Last minute travel made easy

AdvantagesGood choice of services, good customer service

DisadvantagesPoor layout

"...for a good price, and ebookers were the only site I found who were able to do it. Customer service Unusually for an online shopping site, a customer service phone number is clearly displayed at all times. This is a breath of fresh air, very welcome, and it actually puts you through to a human. Prices Similar pricing to other last minute travel sites. The real draw here is when you need to get flights fast, and ebookers does this at competitive, ..." Read review

BOOKING THAT VISIT THE FLEXIBLE WAY

AdvantagesChoice.

DisadvantagesMy mother in law is coming to stay.

"...I can draw is that ebookers is well used and that Brittany Ferries gives them discounts. Even allowing for discounts, and having searched all the available ferry lines including the Condor crossing which is a four hour crossing, the travel arrangements were getting difficult to say the least. How do you transport a lady of 84 from Manchester down to a Ferry Port or airport, over to France and then back again, bearing in mind bedtimes, limited capability ..." Read review

A Better Deal Cannot Be Found

Advantagesgreat price, ease of use, friendly and helpful

Disadvantagessometimes slow to deliver

"I have used Flighbookers (aka Ebookers) quite a lot. I have always been more than satisfied with the service and the price. I have done quite extensive research and have not been able to beat any of the prices that I have been given from flightbookers. The one downfall that I have found is that during the busier seasons they can get behind in sending tickets out leading the more nervous person (such as me) to chase them down by phoning the office. ..."

Nah, too much trouble...

AdvantagesCity breaks section is good

DisadvantagesWaiting time, takes too long, not big on value

"...will say is valuable about ebookers is their city breaks section which will organise a 2 night or 3 night stay in a major European city, starting at about 200 pounds. This is particularly good when places start getting booked up and you are trying to coordinate a flight with finding accomodation. Not such an easy feat when you aren't sure where the city centre is, etc and want to be in the centre of the action. I have never used Ebookers for booking ..." Read review

Both good & bad experiences

AdvantagesVery helpful in 1999

DisadvantagesVery unhelpful and inflexible

"...from Birmingham via flightbookers or ebookers as they are now called. The service was very helpful and courteous and I believe we obtained a very good price. As a result , I went around promoting them to my family and friends. However , two weeks ago we tried to book another flight only package to Las Vegas , initially from Birmingham but as this was full at the prices quoted , secondly from London Heathrow. The price quoted was in excess ..." Read review

So Simple

Advantagesquick, easy, effective.

DisadvantagesNo personal touch.

"...flight from Paris to Bristol ebookers made it seem so simple. I searched for the cheapest available flight entered my details and voila! it was all done. No hassle of going into a travel agent and waiting forever to be get a quote. I managed to pick my tickets up from an agency in the centre of Paris and my flight went without any hitches. My only concern would be if you didn't live near or couldn't access one of their agencies to receive the tickts, ..." Read review

Good Service

Advantages

Disadvantages

"I've used ebookers to book my last holiday and found them to be very efficient and professional. They offered the cheapest fare (by £100) for my holiday and my tickets were delivered very quickly. This fare was cheaper than booking directly with the involved airline. I found the site very easy to navigate. Ebookers also allowed me to book a multi-destination holiday by filling out my preferred itenerary online and having them email me with the ..." Read review
