Anyone used Travel Trolley?

Hi

Has anyone used the Travel Trolley website to book flights? The website says they're part of the Southall Travel Group, although I've never heard of these. I have found a cheap flight however have never used them before, and see that they are relatively newly incorporated.

Please share your experience if you have used them.

Thanks

These forums are scattered with the sorry tales of people who thought they were being clever and getting "a deal" and it all went sour.

Book direct with the airline if you don't want to get ripped off or heartache and hassle.

If I'm not mistaken Southall Travel are not highly regarded on these forums, so I would urge extra caution to that posted by Joe.

Thanks for your advice Joe and Bluebreezer. I'll steer clear and go directly through the airline.

Thanks

Hi

I just paid a flight but the last step on screen after purchase says nothing about reservation number or the flight tickets details just purchased. And there is no email sent to me only appeared with words ' successful payment and being processed', so I wonder if anyone knows whether this is normal, because normally there would be a rather immediately confirmation email sent but I am just a bit worried if this is a scam! Please advise!

thank you

Jenny, they have taken your hard earned cash and may or may not try to purchase your flight from the airline for you for that price. If they can't purchase you may or may not get confirmation of this. You may or may not get your money back and you may or may not lose your sanity in trying.

Lots of variables there which you can avoid by booking direct from the airline.

Please advise

Research who you buy from BEFORE booking

Then book direct anyway.

I did find travel trolley very odd when looking to book. They didnt give any addisitional details about the flight like how much luggage you are allowed to take on or where you would like your seat to be. It was just the payment screen. I want to book with them however because the flight is so mucb cheaper than anywhere else. Hmmm. What should i do?
