Has anyone came across a travel company called Air FastTickets.co.uk? Are they a genuine travel firm?

I have never heard of them. No info on their website to say where they are based, I certaintly would not handover my hard earned cash to them.

Do what most sensible people do, book directly with the airlines or use an established travel agent such as Trailfinders.

I have just looked on Groupon and they are doing a great deal with this company, Is it genuine? I have looked to see what airlines they use and cannot find any. There seems to be no reviews on this company. They say you can buy a return ticket to 25 airports and the voucher is valid for a year. I priced up a ramdon destination and date to venice and it came up £129,999. But i would be paying 39.99. Seems a bit to good to be true. I buy loads of things off Groupon and think it is a fantastic site. ( By the way if any one sees Le Boushon French resaurant in Spitifields London, buy it as it was one of the best places i have eaten) getting back to what i was asking, is this a killer deal or are we being blinded by the good price. ? Can anyone give advise.? Thanks

Just to note that even if this co. is legit, the offer DOES NOT incl taxes which will make the cost considerably greater than the 39.99 'deal' being offered (don't know whether your 129.99 incl'd taxes or not)...

Sticking you with paying the seems to be the big catch. For the example below, the voucher is only applied to the base fare of 59.00. So, with a 29.00 voucher, you save 30.00 on the base fare part. But remember, you had to buy the Groupon voucher for 29.00, so it's a wash! You'd pay 75 (taxes) + 30 (reduced base fare) = 105 + 29 (voucher fee) = 134. The original fare without using a voucher is 134.00!


Ticket price per type of passenger including taxes:

Adult (59.00 base fare + 75.00 airport taxes): 134.00 GBP

The only way to benefit from this deal is find a flight with low taxes and a high base fare, if I'm reading it all correctly.

Not familiar with Groiupon but doesn't £29 buy you a fare worth £59 or does it only buy you a reduction of £29?
