I was appalled to see my flight booked and paid for at 153 euro and then seeing my card debited by 183 euro instead for something called Fullflex. I booked the day before the flight so why would I need this? Never even noticed the option for this. Very angry. I was careful to watch out for the OPT IN or OUT trickery on these websites but this I never spotted. The flight became more expensive than going to the airline website Paula Cullen. Flybe 23/03/2017. Dublin to Southampton
This and its parent company have not refunded my cancelled ticket for six months now, have to take them to court! No other way to get money back

My booking id is 299427305 and would like to reschedule my trip. When i called at 9 AM Copenhagen time they responded to me around 12PM and asking to Fare adjustment: 93.06 EUR extra. I am really not sure why they chosen a flight which has more fare on that day. After that called around 12:30PM and provided the flight details which has less than my price but no response until 5:10PM. No one picking the call in Copenhagen and also no response to my email from last 5 hours. I really not sure why/what takes more than 5 hours to send the quotation. I personal feel before they respond my flight tickets gets changed. Next day got a call from executive to reschedule my flight with out collecting the fare adjustment charge. I feel better that their escalation process was quite good and things happens quickly after few follow up's.
I knew it straight away when I couldn't do my online check-in I tried & tried but have put it aside & re booked with the Airline, but I wonder how do these scammers keep getting away with it with all the letters I've just read ( I wish I wasn't in such a hurry yesterday) but now I know it will be a waste of effort to do any more...
Stupid business plan & my star rating for them would be stardust °
Im planning to purchase ticket with this website since they offering good & cheapest price for my last minute trip. I can see lots of negative comments. But just want to make sure before i proceed. Appreciate your advise...
My boarding passes are notmloading with bravofly, im booked to go on the 30th to tenerife and need to print 7 days before. I know its not 7 days before but why cant i still view them?!?!
Getting very worried from the reviews ive seen.
Do not use BravoFly They can not take enough money from you ordered the flight online with Visa therefore they took 25 % extra for the ticket when I came to the payment there was also travel insurance on do use that compani many complain about TrutsPilot immediately *******246
We have one good and one very bad experience with Bravofly in Berlin.
The good one is that we got an full refund for a cancelled flight and were able to book a new flight to the same (USA) destination. Easy, as this was not their fault and they get reimbursed too by US Airways.
The very bad experience is that for this flight we now need to fly to Brussels in order to catch the corresponding flight. So far so good, however what Bravofly never mentioned on their website while booking is that with Brussels Airlines only handluggage is free but you do pay for baggage in the hold of the aircraft.
After several calls from our side and promises to repair, nothing happens and undoubtedly will not happen! This means that we are now obliged to either buy new tickets directly from the airline company or pay a considerable fee for reviewing our tickets, 3 in total!
As soon as it is their mistake, they are not taking any responsibility whatsoever and hide after a deafening silence curtain!
So, despite the few positive reactions I read here on this site, for us it is the very last time we'll use Bravofly for further bookings.
I don't really think they're scam nor swindlers, but I do think they are extremely incompetent and unprofessional, especially in dealing with problems they cause themselves. Probably due to underpaid staff, thus indifferent and unexperienced.
We certainly will never recommend them to any of our friends.
Regards from prm.
I have bought a ticket for my mother, to travel in January, do to a yearly checkup the doctor said to cancel any trips until diagnosis is clear, I called BravoFly, and i also had the policy they suggested the voucher after cancellation just in case i need it purchase the ticket soon again cancellation, they promised to give the number 72 hours after cancellation, and nothing! After almost 2 weeks, no response, but to wait...
Finally we got the diagnosis, and she could travel mid january i need urgently to buy the ticket and no voucher number, I hope all this bad reviews can be solved my good assistance after this review...
Waiting now for answers.
My number of booking is: BRTOP312079419
I made a booking ID 330375873. I noticed the following day a double payment had been taken from my account who i contacted and was told Brovofly took 2 payments 20 minuets apart. I contacted Bravofly and was told to respond to my confirmation email with a screen print of my bank statement which i did as soon as it was visible on my statement.
The only responce i had was in portuguese (presumably because the booking was made from Brazil) and even after explaining i could not speak portuguese i received further emails in portuguese.
Upon returning to the UK i contacted Bravofly again and was told to repeat the process with another representative in the UK. After waiting 3 days i was told simply we would like to apologize for our late respose.
"We inform you that we ehcked and there was no a double charge.
You made two bookings: ID BOOKING: 330375873 and ID BOOKING: 330389313."
I never made two bookings and never received two confirmation emails.
Im positive this is a scam as they have been no help in resolving this!
I do not recommend anybody use BRAVOFLY. It has gone from being the cheapest to the most expensive flight possible!
I booked my flight for 9 Feb [Booking ID: 580856485] on 14th Jan 2016. On Feb 5th they sent me an email saying "... due to a system check your reservation with booking ID 580856485 had to be cancelled.". They took 5 mins to pull the money from the CreditCard but now i am trying to call them up for the refund amount and i am not getting any proper response from them. Really pissed off.
I had a very bad experience with Bravofly and Fullflex, I paid the requested fees of flight ticket to Fullflex, for flexibility on change, and when I requested a change i didn't find a reply, even confirmation of receiving emails. And after more than 72 hours of requesting the flight change, I had a reply for start processing my email while my flight were about 36 hours.
They are not professional not dynamic and it's totally unprofessional, they are very very slow. Still this is my first step of complaining againts this very poor service which does not meet the amount paid as well.
Tip for consumers:
Don't use Bravofly & Fullflex they are cheaters.
Please do not use this agency. I bought my ticket to Johannesburg via Nairobi and a few hours later got two simultaneous emails stating that due to a technical problem my ticket could not be issued and the money was being held in a frozen area. This happened on 16/04/2015. I am now taking this matter up with my bank and reporting it as fraud. I have sent them an email and they have not responded yet and their customer service keep saying the problem is with my bank. My bank has confirmed this is not true and have given me the authorisation code for the transaction. They are a scam & should not be operating.
Just got home to the UK from a holiday booked through Bravofly. Now I have read most of the negative reviews and have to admit to having some post booking nerves. I will state here and now it was totally unjustified. Bravofly easily sorted a concern re baggage followed up by excellent communication to ensure we understood it was all sorted to our satisfaction. The flights to Italy and home again all went very smoothly with no problems whatsoever. I for one will have no hesitation in booking with Bravofly in the future. Well done. And just to add, yes, there will be problems with any travel company, that's the way things are but DON'T believe all that you read online. Bravo Bravofly.
Tip for consumers:
Don't believe the negative reviews, yes the contact phone line was overseas, so what. The baggage issue we had was resolved very quickly to our satisfaction.
I used KAYAK for flight comparison and found that Brave fly were offering me tickets for
£945.57, but their confirmation showed £1,075.75. They have taken this amount from
My visa debit card. This is fraud and thieving. It was in March, and since then I have made
Effort to recover the difference of £125.18 without any success.
Whilst there is nothing much I do, but I do not understand how such rogue companies are
Allowed to be in business. And what is the point of price comparison?
I booked my flights with this company and they took the money from my credit card straight away. The next day I received an e-mail saying that my tickets have been cancelled due to a system error and they have refunded my money. It has been over a week and the money hasn't shown up on my credit card. I have been trying to contact them. I wait in the queue for 10 minutes and their system automatically disconnects me. Should've checked the reviews before booking with them..
No problems at all with the website, but it was annoying that you could only print out your boarding card 7 days before your flight - I had to remember to do this on the morning of departure for my return boarding card when I was busy enough getting ready for the holiday. If I had been on a 2week holiday it would have meant ferreting round on holiday to find somewhere to print my boarding cards.
This company is a joke they don't care about people, I asked the airline to change ticket or cancel a month in advance and they said they were processing, every time I sent an email it was the same response so I assumed they were in contact with airline. To top things off the only reason we needed to change was because my daughter was ill and having seizures and many issues, i had medical reports and certificates and told them that and they kept on saying be patient we are processing. Now the flight is about to leave in two days and now they tell me that they made it a priority now to answer me and I got my answer not only did they not cancel ticket due to medical they are now telling me that they can refund 280 euros out of a $7000 euro ticket. Now they have delayed my response caused my daughter added injury as we have no flights home and cost me a lot of money, i think this company should be given a negative rating not 1 star I want to give them negative 100. Also if you have a problem you have to pay to talk to them on your credit card what a joke. I am now going to take legal matters when I get back to Australia and hopefully I can shut them down i will make sure everybody knows about this provider, they don't class a child who is having hundreds of seizures a priority then they are lacking any type of humanity and they should be ashamed in there company and themselves, shame shame shame! I hope God Blesses and touches your heart because something is very lacking in your responses to me and my family over last month. Writing this letter even makes me sick as I now have to get my family home and now I don't know how I am going to do it as we needed refund money to pay for new ticket, but I guess its not there problem because sick children are not a priority in this world anymore, Thankyou Bravo good job you guys excel in customer care.
You know why you experience an unexpected amount of calls because you are scammers and you are going to hell.Do not be overcome with evil but overcome evil with good, that is why I am praying for you people working for this shameless company. I have reported you to international consumer protection, my own country in Australia, in America and endless chat sites that ask for reviews, you have found a friend now in me and I am going to shut you down and find out where you guys practice, my solicitor has received a file and I will be chasing you endlessly, you hollow hearted human beings. Repent and ask God for forgiveness. Sincerely people like yourselves will end up in hell please seek God you need it, I don't want to go there so I forgive you.
Your new best friend
They are based in switzerland for a reason. You can't get hold of them when something goes wrong and they won't pay up. Most bookings end in tears and they pocket your cash no matter what. Stay away and warn your friends to never use them.
Lufthansa cancelled the main leg of the flight and indicated I should rebook through Bravofly, but the only option Bravofly offered is a refund with some administrative charges (I'm still waiting for this refund after two weeks) or a voucher.
Now I do not know how long I would need to wait for the refund or how much are they going to refund (I also bought an insurance, but apparently I'm not getting that money back)
One thing is sure, I will never again book through Bravofly. Worst client service ever.
My outbound flight was cancelled, I received incredible grief about a partial refund. They kept telling me it was my job, not theirs to contact the agency. I had to purchase separate outbound flight as they would not refund my car rental or my inbound flight. Then they would not adjust my car rental time to match the new flight time.
Hello Jacqueline, This is a rogue company, they know that they are thieving are from each transaction. Thieves are the last people to worry about negative reviews on their website. They get away with the fraud, as there is no such thing as internet police.

Hi Sangheeta, The first thing regarding booking your ticket from Banglore to London is to forget rogue companies like Brave-fly. You may be able to book this on British Airways, who have a direct flight. Book on their own website. You want to check, which airline offers a free Change fo date for the return journey. I think Air India, jet airways and Emirates offer free change. Other wise single tickets, as cancelling return ticket is not worth a lot.
