We phoned up about 5 day holiday £274pp (total £1096). Phoned up and the quoted price was £1395, the extras being for 2 checked in baggage and transfers (6km taxi ride). Phoned up again and refused transfers and baggage. Price now £345pp (£1380) because flights and accommodation apparently charge higher prices for children over 5. I told them that this was untrue as the flight carrier Ryanair charge the same from over 2's and they then said it was only for accommodation. We argued and in the end gave up and we are going independently, turns out it is cheaper. Would use this site with caution and expect to pay at least £50pp extra. It felt as though we refused one way of them hiking up the prices so they had to try a different way to extract extra money.
I have been following a hotel for the last 10 weeks on teletextholidays and iv phoned up 5 times to be told the holiday has gone up because the flight price has changed ok I could accept this but the very next day its back advertised at the cheaper price so I phone again to be told the flights just happend to of gone up AGAIN this happens all the time. Teletext holidays is a big con the prices they say is correct at a certain time DONT exist. I challenge Teletext to give me a holiday at the advertised price but i know that is impossible !!
Found a great holiday price etc, called to book and the price increased by hundreds. Once the luggage, transfers and recommended room upgrade added on it wasn't such a great deal. The person taking the call couldn't speak clear English and had trouble understanding me (call lasted an hour!), not what I expected from such an easy to use and comprehensive site. All the work is done by the holiday maker, still saved a few quid, but next time I'll pay the extra and have someone do all the legwork for me.
I always use teletext holidays but i have noticed that the price shown is NEVER the price u actually pay it always ends up more expensive and they try to add on every extra they can.
u can get a good deal if u haggle and stand your ground, i once cancelled whilst he was asking for my card details because he wanted me to pay a stupid amount for luggage, he soon phoned me with a "managers special" and i got it for free.
