Travel Republic review
Author Name: Elaine
Advantages: Easy booking, Quick to confirm booking
Disadvantages: Unable to contact when needed to
First time we used Travel Republic to book a last minute holiday to Turkey that included flights, hotel and shuttle transfer. No problem with the accommodation, nor flights although had to chase up flight meal on return flight, but problems with the shuttle transfers, which are beyond Travel Republic's control. On arrival to Dalaman Airport was informed that the company booked had gone bust and so Holiday Taxis took advantage of this by agreeing to transport holiday makers to their destination but at a cost. 5 days later informed by Travel Republic that there was a change to the shuttle transfer provider (to Holiday Taxis) - though far too late for the the outward journey. However, despite following the instructions to re-confirm pick-up nearly an hour and half later we were still outside the hotel waiting to be transported to the airport and experienced problems trying to get through on the emergency number provided. Therefore,to ensure that we got to the airport in time we resorted to using the local taxi service, again at addtional costs that we hadn't budgeted for. Savings we made by booking with Travel Republic were wiped out by the additional costs we ended paying out for on shuttle transfer and on this basis can see the advantage of booking through the likes of Thomas Cook or Thomson for package holidays.
Summary: First time have used Travel Republic but with above with would hesitate to use again
