Uncover that Dream Hotel or Hole?! Diamond review

AdvantagesEasy to Use, Offers Great Advice, Read Before Your Book!

DisadvantagesCovers only Europe, Mainly Canaries, Spain & Greece.

"I absolutely hate questionnaires and personality profiles where you’re constantly asked to list your hobbies – I mean I’m not exactly the kind of girl that has any real passions in life or anything like that, I’m not mad about reading, nor do I follow any sports like a religion and I’m not blessed with culinary skills! So I tend to end up putting the old usual euphemisms “socialising” meaning getting drunk with my friends and having to be carried ..." Read review

Undercover On Holidays Uncovered !

AdvantagesHonest reviews, useful information

DisadvantagesA bit slow at times, reviews could be set out better

"If you are thinking about booking a package holiday, or are about to book one, then it might be worth your while taking a look at this website. Even if you have already booked, it may still be of interest to you, but only if you are prepared to read reviews of your chosen destination/accommodation that you may not like ! It may be a case of shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted ! The site consists of 2 main things : A database of ..." Read review

Truth,the whole truth and nothing but...

AdvantagesClear & simple to use site, well presented, honest opinions

DisadvantagesRelatively limited reviews (although this growing)

"I came across this web site quite by accident - I was surfing the World Wide Wait for information on Mallorca as I was in the process of researching my package holiday prior to booking (see seperate opinion on Thomson holidays). Here was a sight for sore eyes! A web site that provides good, honest info on resorts and accommodation. The site is simply laid out, with hyperlinks to relevant destinations. Following the links provides you with a ..." Read review

What the travel agents don't always tell you.

AdvantagesGives you the chance to find the truth out.

Disadvantagesyour hotel might not be there.

"This is a great site for discovering the truth about certain apartments and hotels. It is a site for anyone who has been on a holiday to write a review on what they really thought. All you do is click on the link to enter the site,there you will see reviews on The Canary Islands, hopefully mine is there, I did a review on a Tenerife hotel, you don't get paid, it's just to help others make a decision. There is also a section on the Balearics featuring ..." Read review

Look Before You Book.

Advantagesvery easy to navigate

Disadvantagesnone that I could see.

"Holidays uncovered is one of the best, holiday help web sites that I have had the pleasure to discover. It gives individuals the chance to read other peoples opinions on holidays which they have taken. In many cases it gives you the pros and cons about hotels,apartments,resorts etc. This web site is not run by big holiday companies, so there are no flashy pictures, and no booking facility's. it does include a good assortment of search engines ..."

Earn money for writing reviews!

AdvantagesEarn £1 per review

DisadvantagesYou have to go through TCB, and offer may expire

"Holidays Uncovered is an internet site which offers consumer reviews on packaged holidays and hotels. In some ways, it is similar to TripAdvisor, but I would say the content generally is of a much lower standard, although the range of reviews is enormous, and there are very few corners of the earth untouched! The design of the site is an aggressive holiday orange colour, but it's easy to navigate, and the pages load up quickly so it's not frustrating ..." Read review

STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH

AdvantagesPersonal up front knowledge

DisadvantagesPossibly have to sift out the better reports

"Where best to get real holiday information than from those who have little to gain from telling little white lies. My first choice for information on places I wish to go for my holidays is http://www.holidays-uncovered.com; Why! Simple! Its information from those who have actually been there and who are genuinely either enthused or otherwise by the place. Age groups are given so that you can judge whether the info is akin to yourself or not, but generally ..." Read review

Essential reading before you book a holiday

AdvantagesPlenty of comments both good and bad.

DisadvantagesWeak on non-European destinations.

"Holidays Uncovered now forms an essential part of the process I undertake to select every package holiday I book. The brochure is always biased and I also find that the magic under-the-counter 'gazetteer' is very subtle in making any criticisms. The 'gazetteer' by-the-way is the so-called independent guide that travel agents keep hidden from us public. The best way to be sure of a good holiday is by personal recommendation and that is exactly what ..." Read review

Check holidays-uncovered before you book!

AdvantagesTotally free and loads of reviews to read

DisadvantagesNone really.

"www.holidays-uncovered.com lists real reviews of real package holidays that have been submitted to the site by people that have been on them. The site welcomes good and bad reviews and is well worth checking before you book a holiday with any of the leading tour operators such as Airtours, Cosmos, First Choice, JMC, Portland, Thomson and Unijet. Holidays-Uncovered encourages comments on resorts, accommodation, the tour operator, reps, bars, clubs, ..." Read review
