Default Very disappointed

I would like to apologise if at any time my comments appeared to be libellous. At all times all I have quoted are facts but I do accept it is the company's word against mine. I have washed my hands of this incident as life must go on but I just wanted to warn other people to be very cautious when booking accommodation over the internet. To my cost I have found out that unless you book with a reputable company who are ABTA bonded or by booking through a reputable package company you could find that you would not be covered if anything goes wrong with your holiday/accommodation. My gripe is that after months of planning within thirty minutes of landing in Majorca my weeks holiday with my lovely family was ruined never to be compensated for.

I did not get to read the deleted post, but I do agree it is worth while reminding ourselves of the dangers that can happen with what appears to be quick and cheap holiday bookings. I feel sorry for you with your ruined holiday and appreciate the reminder for us all to be aware. Your next one will be fantastic Im sure!!

Hi Snowy,

I think there are many reputable travel agents operating in and around PP but this particular companys reputation is continualy poor and has upset and disappointed many people in the past. I personaly know of at least one occasion when they have offered accommodation to a client that they had no right to be offering and when the accommodation inevitably fell through they then offered an unacceptable alternative coming out with some excuse about a water leak in the original villa.
I know we have to be carefull regarding comments on the forum but we also have a duty to help unsuspecting potential clients of this company to avoid the disasterous effect of a ruined holiday.
Finally virtually all if not all of the accommodation offered by this company can be booked independentley and cheaper on this very web site, just look in villas/appartments to rent.

Please do NOT name any Travel Companies which you have a dispute with or have a complaint about. These comments are potentially libellous and we cannot AFFORD to be involved in any litigation. Feel free to discuss matters in PRIVATE via the ezInbox but NOT in this Public Forum.

I am now closing this post.
