World Cup holiday deals warning

Published in News

Consumer watchdogs in York have warned World Cup fans to be wary of holiday deals which seem too good to be true after bringing a travel company to book.

TravelnTravel.co.uk lured consumers with the promise of cheap flights, but failed to honour them, an investigation involving York Council trading standards officers revealed.

Cllr Tracey Simpson-Laing, York Council’s Cabinet Member for Safer Communities, said: “People planning to make last minute arrangements to visit Brazil to watch the World Cup games should heed the warning this case gives.”

The website looks horrendous and that should at least start off the warning signs in people's heads... Anyone buy a holiday needs to do their research before handing over their hard earned cash.

Use respected travel agents and larger companies such as Superbreak or Thomas Cook. If you find a deal cheaper elsewhere, go back and tell them about the lower offer. The worst they'll say is no, so you're really no worse off for trying.
