Advantages: Easy layout to book the whole holiday
Disadvantages: Awful Transfers
We bought our flight, hotel & transfers through Travel Republic and all were great except for the transfers. On arrival we had to wait two hours before the coach left the airport to drop us off at our hotel as they were waiting for people on a later flight. When booking the transfer it had stated we would have to wait no longer than an hour. This however was better than our return journey to the airport. We tried calling the number to confirm our transfer 24hrs before departure, no answer, we then tried the emergency mobile number, again no answer. We then resorted to calling the English emergency number which we managed to get through to, we managed to leave my flight details etc but as we took no phone abroad we left the number of our hotel. Being an international call the payphone ate all our money (we put in well over 10Euros) so I presumed Travel Republic would leave a message at our hotel. The lady at reception was really helpful and promised to take the message if one came through but it didn't. She also mentioned that the transfer company we had been booked with were very unreliable and she herself had many problems with them. We ended up having to get a bus and walk quite a bit to the airport. This would have been fine if we hadn't already paid for transfers but we assumed Travel Republic would look into the companies they used first.
Summary: Generally the holiday was great just a shame they didn't look into their transfers
