I felt I should leave a thread about Travel Republic having just booked and taken a trip with them to Dublin this weekend.
Having booked and then read a lot of reviews on here about them, I was worried sick that we'd paid for something we'd never get.
I am pleased to report all went smoothly though! We booked flights with them travelling with Aer Lingus which went just fine (and very reasonably priced) and also booked and stayed at the North Star Hotel in Dublin, again with no problem. Following on from reading so many bad reviews, I worriedly did call both the airline & hotel in advance of leaving the UK and both were able to confirm my bookings and put my mind at rest. If concerned, I would definitely advise doing this prior to your travels, if for nothing more than the reassurance.
All happy with the Travel Republic trip though and at the best price I could find online.
