I've used Alpharooms several times in the past.. great company to deal with.
#2
Voted hot as I am fed up of being charged to pay by card - debit or credit!! How else do they think we can pay over the internet?? I'm assuming we can book easyjet flights through alpharooms?
#3
they show easyjet and all the other low cost airlines when making an on line enquiry.
#4
Would you also get quidco thru alpharooms on flights do you think.
#5
Tried to book some Glasgow (Prestwick) to Paris (beavious) flights last week on RyanRipOffAir

Great pirce flights for 4 at £112 when I selected CC as a means of payment £130

BTF!

Expedia don't charge card fees either, and also discount when you book flight + hotel so it is always worth checking too.

I booked Ryanair flights for £16 each plus £2 switch fee each making a total of £36 for 2 of us. I though that wasn't too bad, but charging a switch fee is just another way to get your money as you don't really have much choice!

I booked a BMI flight 2 days ago and paid the £3 card fee and just checked same flight on Alpharooms and it came out £1 more expensive without the so-called card fee. Sorry, cold from me!

Poor reason to vote cold as flight prices change by the hour.

Before I voted cold I went back to BMI's site to check if they had changed and it was cheaper buying direct, albeit by £1.

How quickly are the e-tickets issued? i booked flights (air europa) over a week ago and still not received anything other than the automated confirmation email! credit card's been charged by Air Europa themselves! cheers

HOT BTW! err... sorry for bringing back a month old thread to life...!

I have also used them recently (to Tallinn in Estonia),I saved not only the card fees,but was £20 cheaper than EasyJet (same flight!!) My wife was afraid ,and asked me to buy at Easyjet,but I didn't listen to her. She said,if flight canceled we will be the first ones to be sorry,as Easyjet won't guarantee our place on the plane.
One or 2 days after purchasing my ticket from AlphaRooms,I had received a confirmation email from EasyJet too.http://www.liquidsky.net/blogger/paris_easyjet.jpg

Airmiles are another outfit who DO NOT charge credit card fees.

Like Expedia they also do some good deals on flights+hotel packages.

Plus of course you can also get Airmiles for whatever you book. Which is better than nothing.

They aren't on Quidco though.

And in some cases a quidco payout from someone who charges credit card fees normally covers it anyhow.

I like Alpha Rooms a lot. Very good company. Voted hot.

I looked into alpharooms for accomodation last year and did not book with them because their cancellation policy was too strict. As soon as you booked, you were liable for a significant fraction of the total cost. I ended booking directly with the hotel because, as is normal practice, one can cancel up to about 10 days before the visit without incurring charge.

I know this is not applicable to flights but it is just a warning to be wary of the T&Cs.

Tried AlphaRooms

Belfast to Krakow (Poland)

Cheapest was £360 per person!!! :whistling: No thanks....half the price with Easyjet
#16
Have to vote cold. If price comparison sites get the price wrong 1% of the time, then they are a waste of time as they you cant rely on them ro provide the right price and have to double check anyway.
#17
you dont get issued etickets
#18
Thanks
#19
I won't vote on this, but i did google alpharooms and everything that appeared was giving negative reviews and also several times was mentioned that people had arrived at hotels and their reservation was not received. Only checked as i was going to book a hotel through them but now i have hesitations !

Nevermind :) not seen anything about their flight side of things.. i should read before i type next time :-)

Voted hot in that case :p
