Not personally however by all reports dealing with them is like dealing with a severe case of gastroenteritis... unpleasant and very messy.

Crystal Travel.....Absolutely useless.

Left us stranded in the resort with no help what so ever, we had to arrange different accommodation ourselves as the hotel they booked for us was closed for the season.

When we got back to the UK we called them and was told they would look in to the matter and come back to us, one week later they still haven't called back, I've made several calls to them asking for the manager (Sam) but he refuses to take my calls, all the staff just seem to brush me to one side by saying they will get Sam to call me back, he never does.

Here is a reply from Sam (Manager) after my initial contact with him:


Greeting of the day.

As I have seen the below email which in regards to the hotel changes.

I really apologize for all your inconvenience on your holiday. I really appreciate your patience.

Please give us time till Wednesday ,as we were not aware of the changes which is done by our supplier, let me investigate personally on your concern.

Hope you understand, as we are dealing with 3rd party.

Thanks & Regards,


If your thinking of using Crystal Travel or any of its associated companies to book your holiday be warned, they're costumer service is non existent.......Rant over!!!!!

"Hope you understand, as we are dealing with 3rd party"

I like the irony in this statement. As if they're admitting dealing with a third party can be a pain.
