We used twice the service from Octoupustravel. The first time, everything went OK, even though I didn't like the idea to pay in advance. The second time, however, was that what you would call a disaster. We had booked a hotel in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Unfortunately, our 1 year old daughter got ... Read review

"We used twice the service from Octoupustravel. The first time, everything went OK, even though I didn't like the idea to pay in advance. The second time, however, was that what you would call a disaster. We had booked a hotel in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Unfortunately, our 1 year old daughter got badly ill (hospital, ICU,...) so that we moved the trip by three months. I changed the date at the Octopustravel page and got a positive reply.

Octopus travel.How to save squids..

Advantagesspeed, price, convenience

Disadvantageshotel unseen, if you haven't done this before it might be intimidating

"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 pleased with the hotel that I booked-for price, cleanliness and facilities. Another success! What I noticed was the speed that the system worked. All you ..." Read review

good service worth a try

Advantageseasy booking system

Disadvantageshotels of choice not always available

"I have used octopus travel twice, once in Berlin which was excellent 5* Hotel at a budget price worth every penny. The second time was in Paris. This time I went for economy. I tried to book one hotel but it came back that it was full so offered an alternative; unfortunately this was on the opposite side of the city. I eventually found a 2* hotel within walking distance of the Gard Nor (train station). The hotel was described as clean and basic ..." Read review

AdvantagesProvides hotel information

DisadvantagesBookings 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 time delay is also a disaster if approaching peak season and the final straw, it gives false reports. Note the following: Hotel: HOTEL81 - ORCHID, Singapore Date: ..." Read review

Reservation for Octopussy

AdvantagesGreat value for money

DisadvantagesCan'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 I have booked through the hotel chain direct. Bargain! If you already have in mind the location you wish to stay and the type of accommodation you want, ..." Read review
