Too many rip offs, scams and deals that turn out not be be deals with most of these third parties . I bet those prices turn out not to be available. Book direct with the airline.

The site looks earily similar to another website discussed here.

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i10702-k5877444…

That site has been shut down, leading me to be convinced it's a scam.

Just tried a trial booking - after selecting a flight, you get;

"to complete your booking, call us on ....."

Classic way of operating for scammers.

If not scammers then likely bait and switch, what are the odds the price wont be available and there will be no record of what you agreed to pay and how that matches with what you are charged, and once they add their extras on I bet it costs more than the airline even if its "genuine".

Anyway, even if they were real I wouldn't touch any company that needs you to phone to complete the deal. Too many things can go wrong.

Is there a genuine ''cheap flight'' out there? I don't bother looking any further than Trailfinders or the airline now. With Trailfinders you dial a London or other local office number (not a premium number like some) and there's no credit card charge. Any company with the word cheap in the business name is usually anything but.
