I first used Octopustravel when I was booking a flight with Easyjet to Madrid. They are linked automatically but it does not prevent you from using Octopustravel independently-without booking a flight through Easyjet. I have recently booked a hotel in Amsterdam with them, and was extremely...

HELPS VENT MY FRUSTRATION

NONE

VERY SHONKY OPERATERS. Octopus Travel booked our hotel transfers from our London Hotel to Heathrow Airport. They told us the incorrect time for pick up which was stated on the booking. The hotel called HotelInk for us to confirm the booking the day prior to departure. They did not ammend the time...

“Reservation for Octopussy”

published 21/04/2004

Great value for money

Can't think of any at present

I have just booked a hotel through Octopus4easyjet (formerly Octopustravel), which is an EasyJet company and have to tell you how impressed I am with the results. It's so easy to use and not only have I booked a really nice 5-star hotel for the night, but it was 60% off the original price should...

“Octopustravel.com”

Provides hotel information

Bookings are bogus

Tigerairways (49% Singapore Airlines) books accommodation online via Octopustravel (no customer service or thinking human). Any problem and you are on your own. The Octopustravel booking takes 48hours for confirmation, during which time you have to wait or risk multiple credit card billing. The...

Cheap, easy, superb accommodation

Possibly lacking in detail

GENERAL Octopus covers hotels and sightseeing tours for various countries around Europe. Their website is available in numerous different languages and results are available in various currencies as well. Still relatively unknown, Octopus still has the wide range of hotels available. However...

Was a loyal user of Octopus Travel since 2002 for all Hotel bookings. Paid charges for amendments/cancellations when required. Made a booking for 2 couples for a Berlin Hotel in September 2007. Due to a later arrival via River Cruise than first thought, needed to make a slight amendment; dropping one of 6 nights for one couple and shifting from 1&2 September to 2&3 September for second couple. Octopus Travel has charged me an extra £198:50 for this. Will not be using them again after such an experience.

None.

I found this site through a Google search when I was planning a European tour. Prices were invariably good and it was easy to narrow down my searches to the area of the cities where I wanted to book. The map pages were clear and straightforward to use, and after my stays I was pleased I'd chosen...

I recently went to Whistler for a mountain biking trip (awesome place). On my way home I spent 3 nights in Vancouver before heading back to the UK. I booked to stay in the St Regis on the Octopustravel.com site. The rate I paid was considerably lower than the other hotel websites I checked. Over...

computer based booking system

the room and service on arrival did not exist

Very dissapointed to be sold a room that upon arrival was not available. It was not a discounted price but a cost of twice that the hotel had charged them for the room ~ according to the apology letter from the Hotel which is more than Octupus.com has done, apologise that is. I think that Octupus...
