e dreams air ticket company

Another word of warning about e dreams.

They charge a MASSIVE £1.53 per MINUTE! PLUS TAX just to speak to someone.

Furthermore, it is not clear and the wording so small you need special glasses to see it.

There is NO NEED in this day and age to pay extortionate per-minute rates to book your tickets.

Thirdly, for the benefit of us customers, you will also notice they advertise a trick ticket which simply does not exist at the price they state. Today I saw a ticket to Thailand stated as £189 but when clicking on it are not shown where it is. Eventually, showing the ticket as over double the actual trick advert promised. I will use another reputable air ticket company but NOT e dreams. They are misleading us. You have been warned.

Did you actually purchase a ticket from eDreams? If you did, what research did you do before buying? There have been plenty of posts regarding eDreams for you to read about.

Put e dreams in the search box and spend several hours or even days reading about the problems that people have had with them - you are not the first and I doubt you will be the last to post such warnings.

However as long as people keep chasing the cheapest price then they, and others like them, will continue to operate. So called cheap prices always come at a price - one of which is premium rate phone numbers.

"please don't tell me you work for them too?"

You win the prize - 2nd post and already claiming that others work for an airline or travel company because you didn't like the reply.

"I for one do not know how this company can keep trading." - It's simple really - because people like you book with them.

And no I don't work for e dreams, any other travel company or any airline - I simply do some research before parting with my cash.

I can see very clearly the phone number, and cost, even without my glasses! £1.53 per minute VAT incl. plus network extras. Not sure how it's deliberately misleading when the information is right in front of you.

Maybe doing some basic research before booking would have prevented your rant. Book direct with the airline in future.

Missed the reply at #5 - Just amazed to see a one post ranter post a reply (not a troll then!).

Even more amazed that anyone in their right mind would think that a £189 fare to Thailand would be in the least bit genuine.

I'm wondering why the OP phoned them in the first place.
