Travelup came 52nd out of a possible 53 for being the worst agents during the Covid19 epidemic. Check out the poll on moneysavingexperts - or check out all the facebook comments - look for the group 'TravelUp COVID Response'.
Whats the deal code i need? COVID-19???
Looks like a very good price with relatively short stopover (from the example given) Will you be able to get travel insurance then? What exclusions will there be then? Buy now?
If everyone took this further with authorities, they’d be closed ages ago. Just see their latest feedback on Trustpilot and other rating sites, it’s a joke!
Good luck. You’re dealing with a guy calls himself Sam Ozy!!! But clearly he’s not and surely he’s running this business from his bedroom!
Their customer service is shocking poor as well, I emailed them following their website with no reply, then called customer service and they just keep saying I emailed the wrong address. They even hanged up the phone when I ask them to check my query on phone. Very poor, regarding to holding the money, I did heard a lot of travel agency do that as well. So lesson learn, I will book with the airline direct in future.
I fly a lot and have booked through travel up a few times. I've never had any problem until now. My wife had a problem when they sold a ticket but had no seat. Took ages to get the money back. So just be aware that if there is anything to do with refund, it will be a night mare. I've got a flight booked via them in CX for march 23rd to HK and ask them to amend the date, as CX are allowing this due to the covid19 but no reply.
Don’t deal with TravelUp, they’re thieves. They’ve stolen our money and despite the airline refunded them for the flights cancelled due to coronavirus, they’re holding on to our money. Read their latest bad reviews. They’ve been recently ripping people off.

Direct Etihad return flight to Abu Dhabi £273 (Departing LHR / Including 23kg checked luggage) - May Dates @ Skyscanner / Travel Up£273
Used travel up last year when I booked Virgin/Delta flights to Vancouver, within a few days of booking they showed up on the Virgin/Delta websites when I logged on! The flight times kept changing too much for my liking, so I asked travel up if we could amend our return to include a delay in returning from layover in Seattle for a few days and they contacted Delta and they agreed, we only paid £260 return in the first place, so for me it worked a treat:) )) keep travelling guys (y) Am currently in Seoul and there are very few tourists around!!
Wish the NFL schedule was out already! Might have to risk it again!
Thanks for the discount code - worked on their website for a completely different flight. Not worried about issues with ticketing as I've gone with a reputable airline, with whom I can verify the ticket, if needed
In the example above, depart Gatwick and return Heathrow
I have used them a few times on flights to Singapore and Japan without any issues. They usually provide the booking reference for the agent (themself) and an airline reference that you can log in through airline's website. However if any changes to your flight needs to be made, you have to go back to them as airline won't deal with bookings made through an agent.

Direct British Airways return flight to New York (Departing LGW / March & May departures) £199.80 @ Skyscanner / TravelUp£199.80
Just back from 10 days in Orlando....I had to send 4 meals back for various reasons on this trip. And this wasnt at cheap eateries either. It was mainly for the meals coming out cold/warm instead of hot..but also steaks coming out Medium rare when I ordered well done. Seemed to be a recurring theme on the holiday. More a case of understaffed so meals are left on the side to be sent to the relevant tables...and lack of communication with the kitchen. The more expensive the restaurant the worse it seemed to be.....Maggianos and the expensive Disney restaurants seemed worse. Actually the hottest and best service meal we had was at a fast food joint and the cheapest meal for the holiday! So.....you think it's fine to tip compulsory when youve had to send a $40 main course back because it came out cold twice in a row? You think its fine to tip 20% when your $45 dollar steak comes out rare when you specified it to be well done? In America I always tip 15 to 20% as long as the service and food are acceptable...but sorry, when in paying $45 for a main course and it comes out cold twice or isnt cooked as requested then no, I downright will not tip. It is probably the whole reason why service levels have gone downhill in the last few years I've been visiting the states as they know mugs will tip them regardless, so why would they need to keep high levels of service?
If they are willing to be doing that, they shouldn't be working with food, never mind expecting a tip.
I'm yet to have bad service in the US. If i have bad service in UK I will not tip.
Oh that's cool they definitely won't spit in your food then if they are on minimum wage and you don't tip them then even though its expected.....
Lol! Correct Everyone should be paid a fair wage for a honest job... I bet the employer isn't living on tips from the government to prop up his profits?? This is just wrong! Just pay people who do honest work for you...Can't be that hard

Direct Virgin Atlantic return flight to New York or Boston £229 / Miami £244 / San Francisco £257 (Departing LHR) @ Skyscanner / Travel Up£229
Booked off this site using the code provided, been over 24 hours but booking still shows as unconfirmed and PNR provided cannot be found on airline(s) website P.S. This code works on routes with other airlines as well ;)
11 hours in economy is pretty brutal However, on some of these routes the new Airbus A350 is in operation, which is said to provide a slightly more enhanced experience than the older planes Nevertheless, these are some good prices for a carrier that is rated highly and includes meals and drinks To those who will inevitably moan about the lack of checked baggage, you'd be surprised how much you can fit in a cabin suitcase if you pack efficiently
Right you've had it! (cheeky)
Thanks @apur32 :)

Direct American Airlines return flight to New York £235 (Departing London Heathrow / Jan - Mar dates) @ Travel Up (Using code)£235
Time the flights carefully and you can get a lot done in 23 hours as the city is compact and easy to get around
You can book a multi city flight, but you normally find that you can only stop at one loction for over 24hrs (so either Washington or NYC), otherwise the price goes up significantly.
Yes ,is possible .Just look for multi city flights.
I can see good prices for flights from Heathrow > New York but with a 14hr layover in Washington. Any ideas if/how I could extend a layover so I have about 2 days in Washington and then get connecting flight to New York? Is that even possible... Would be nice..
