“Quick refund within free-cancellation period”

Tom B.
1/10/20

I cancelled my booking within the 7-hour free-cancellation period that my flight had when I realized I need a different flight plan. Opodo refunded my money to the penny within 3 working days (only downside is that since my account is not in GBP I got screwed on the exchange rate, but that's my bank screwing me, not Opodo). One weird thing is that I still keep getting emails as if my booking was still confirmed and even when I log in to Opodo's site to manage my booking it still appears to be confirmed, only thing indicating a refund is that in the "Billing" section, the mentioned total is "Total: £0.00 Congrats! That's an amazing deal". Aside from this confusion, really good service.

“Pay more to get less”

Maurizio S.
3/1/20

If you want to get less than what you pay for book Opodo! Their customer service is not worth a nickle. When you call their number nobody picks up the phone. When you try to handle it via their internet site - they tell you to call a number and so it goes in circles. I cannot recommend this platform to anyone. Should you however choose to use them anyways make sure to carefully read their conditions first. You are in for more bad surprises if you don't.

Be aware of the service charge. Before you book the flight, click on "price breakdown" . Otherwise it is easy to miss, unlike the credit card fee, which is shown in a box you have to click to proceed.
I was confused when i simultaneously received a flight confirmation and a flight denial due to a credit card issue. I called the help centre to make sure the flight was actually booked. The wait time on the phone drove me almost insane and made me incredibly rude to the service person . which i feel bad about in hindsight.
When i had a question about the cost breakdown, i wrote via email. They surprisingly answered right away, although it took a few emails to get the information straight.

Hi Heather.

Thank you for your feedback. We do appreciate the importance of cost and work very hard to provide our customers with the best available price. However, prices do vary and fluctuate depending on the market due numerous reasons like currencies, airline offers and availability. In any event, thanks for booking with us and we hope you enjoyed your trip!

Do not trust Opodo! I was purchasing a ticket to Spain through Opodo. until the very last stage in the booking and payment process, the final price I was to be charged with was written but when I gave my credit card data and purchased the ticket, an extra ~25% was charged from my card! So I contacted Opodo and explained the situation and they said that this has happened a couple of times before and that they would investigate the case and get back to me. However, even though I called them 3 times after that, they never got back to me with an explanation nor did they reimburse me. I will never purchase a ticket through Opodo again and I suggest that you do the same as the customer service is horrible!

Tip for consumers: DO NOT TRUST OPODO

Answer:

Guys, it would only cost you about £40 to take them to small claims court. Dont just take the loss, these people need to be held to account. Id also contact Rip Off Britain to get a programme made about their tactics

You can complain all you like but once they have your money they dont give a tinkers cuss. Best form of complaint is social media like this site and face book.
