Globe Hunters

Globe Hunters

I have just booked a flight from Manchester to New York with Globe Hunters. The price was cheaper than with other agents and airline companies. I booked by phone and the agent was courteous and helpful. Two hours after paying I received my eTickets. So after initial wariness, I can say that I am very pleased with this company and the way that they dealt with my booking.

There's also this one:

I would strongly recommend people stay away from this company.

I am very reassured by your experience, as I have just received my e tickets from them for a flight to Orlando with Virgin. Should I check with Virgin?

That's always a good idea when buying from a 3rd party.

Phoned Virgin Atlantic and flights and all bookings are confirmed and cannot be changed or cancelled without me knowing.

I've had a unique experience with Globe Hunters. We booked our tickets in September and had a confirmation. Since then, there was some confusion and our tickets got cancelled. We were very angry and not happy at all. We rung them today and were extremely annoyed. We asked to speak to the supervisor and since then our experience has changed. We have been wowed by their floor manager, Sunny who had apologised to us and totally understood our frustrations! In fact he has worked so hard in the last 2 hours that not only has he got us new flights but also on the same dates with a very good airline and only charged us very little extra! Given that it is November and we are flying out in December, all tickets are very expensive! Still Globe Hunters have managed to keep their word and deliver fantastic service

I have just returned from New York after booking with Globe Hunters. I was really worried once I booked as I never received any confirmation or email from the company and then did some research and noticed all the bad reviews about them on Trip Advisor. After contacting Globe Hunters chasing them for my paperwork they sent me my e-tickets 4 days after booking. I contacted the airline too to make sure the flights were confirmed and they said they had been. I still didn't believe the tickets existed until I got on the flight. Their admin is not the best as you have to do all the chasing, but they did save me money on high flight prices.

No airline that I can recall has ever asked for my passport details when booking a flight so I wouldn't worry for that reason.
