Barrhead Travel Service - scam

Tried to invoice me for a vacation I never booked. Right name, wrong country, and IDEK how they got my email address which isn't my name. fishy as heck. And of course you can't submit a contact form without giving them all kinds of personal information. I need more letters so I'm just filling space now, just avoid this company. Try again, scammers, your bait is stale and your sauce is weak.

Barrhead Travel Service - booking

Booking Reference: 9265468,

I am writing to you to raise an issue about Travel Agents at Barrhead Travel on June 4th, 2018.

Firstly the travel provider/hotel changed the 24 hr buffet so it is now no longer 24hrs. When being advised about this change we decided that this was probably not the right hotel for us as it tells us that they are scaling back. My husband phoned Barrhead travel to tell them that we had found a new hotel and that we would like to change. They told us that it would £300 plus £100 admin fee. My husband said that due to the fact there was a change in what the hotel was providing that the admin fee shouldn't be applicable. He said that he would provisionally book this room and get back to him regarding the admin fee. He was also told he would receive a confirmation email regarding the change. This email never came so my husband phoned the next day in order to give Barrhead travel time to sort this out. On this phone call he was told that it had not been dealt with and that the last person he spoke to was incorrect and there wouldn't have been an admin fee in the first place but now the room was £800. Every time my husband has phoned he has had to speak to different call handlers and every time begin the process again. So to sum up the issue. Barrhead are asking for £800 extra when we can get the same hotel online for £137 difference. I am extremely disappointed that due to incompetence of Barrhead travel staff we have missed out on the hotel we wanted to change to. They want £2000 from us if we cancel the holiday. Now, I completely understand that hotels change things but we are within our rights to change our mind because of these changes, especially when we are willing to pay the difference. However, I do not accept that because of incompetent staff that I am stuck with a hotel we are now unhappy with. I can safely say I will not be booking with Barrhead travel again and I will not be recommending. Thank you in advance.

I look forward to your prompt response.

Barrhead Travel Service - not being informed that we would have to pay a hotel facility charge of 32.99 dollars per day

Booking reference [protected]

When we arrived at the reception of the Roosevelt Hotel, New York on 4 April 2018 we were told that we had to pay a facility charge of 32.99 dollars per day for internet connection, gym use, being able to make local calls and they gave us vouchers for 10% off at their restaurant. The hotel said that as we were an Experia booking we had to pay this and this was disclosed when the booking was confirmed. We had not been told anything about this facility charge when we booked the holiday and although we wanted the internet connection, we had no intention of using the gym, making local calls or eating in their expensive restaurant. We had to pay £167.32 for the facility charges for 4-11 April 2018 when we left the hotel for just for using the wi fi. There is no mention of the hotel's daily facility charge in the accommodation voucher ref. 7392373 we were given. We feel that we were badly let down by Barrhead Travel and the company should refund us the £167.32 we had to pay for something we should have been told about at the time of booking. If we had of been told about the hotel's facility charge we would have chosen a different hotel with free wi fi. Barrhead Travel is responsible for informing its customers of all costs and charges they will incur especially when these would be in addition to the total cost of the holiday which had already been paid and they failed to do this.

Barrhead Travel Service - lack of fluency and competence

I booked sandals Antigua for 2018 for my husbands 50th next year in may.
From the beginning there have been problems, difficulties and a to.tal lack of transparency.
From flight times being changed to not informing myself of charges, i.e. Booking premium club seats, but have to pay £200 to sit together. To lack of consistency, i.e. Having a set number of hours for flight transfer. When going out there is only two hours, and expecting us to wait 7 on return, and. Or book connecting flights ourselves. I am totally dismayed, disappointed and troubled by the way I have been treated.
To top it of. Sandals have taken no responsibility with there changes. Leaving, I feel is having to compromise or change or holiday.
Due to these issues, I know have had to cancel a concert, organised for our return for my husbands birthday
I would appreciated you looking at my case
