9flights.co.uk REVIEW?

These guys seem to have some amazing flight deals, but was wondering if they are a bogus company? Has anyone else used 9flights.co.uk before and have you ever had any issues with them?

I am worried!!!!!

I have booked my flight from Leeds/bradford flying on the 13th July to Kenya and returning on the 11th August. I have looked so far and my flight appears to be booked and going ahead as planned, however, I am aware that 9 Flights.co.uk have caused so many problems. I have left a message on KLM's facebook wall asking if they could confirm that my flight is booked with them, I am waiting on a response...... Could anyone recommend anything else I could do?

Looking at various websites there do seem to be issues with 9Flights - who as I understand it are originally a German company. I was tempted by a low price but soon realised that "cheap is not cheap".

The advice given to book directly with the airline is certainly the safest.

However the well known, respected, sites such as Expedia, EBookers, Opodo, LastMinute etc are all fine and may offer better prices. They are upfront about any charges and, having travelled a lot and used all of them in the past 2 years, I have never had any problems. If I had to choose one I'd go for Expedia.

I have booked a trip with 9flights, to Kathmandu in 5 weeks. When I went online just now to view my flights, I couldn't follow the link and the phone numbers on the website are incorrect. I am very worried! What can I do?

Call the airline and check if they have the booking.

Buyer beware!! They have some of the lowest fares but their customer service is appalling. They do not return calls (despite promises to do so) and trying to amend bookings after flight cancellation or rescheduling by the airline is almost impossible in my exerience. I tried in vain to get them to reschedule seats after original flights were cancelled by the airline. You get put on endless hold or are passed from person to person to finally be told the person you need to speak to is busy and they will call you back within the hour (they never do...).After 2 weeks of trying to get them to sort things out, I eventually gave up and contacted the airline directly. The impression I got from the airline concerned was that I was not the first to have had this problem with 9flights bookings.

I will never use them again.

recently i travel to egypt with 9flights and had multiple problems with them .After payment I was given wrong return flight. Once you phone customer service and want something sorted out they immediately block this number from their system.It cost me extra £100 to change my return flight for 2.I was told 2 baggage but then it was only 1 when I phone I was told they always tell you that just to attract customer.

I have had the same problem with 9flights.whichever number you call from once they know they block the number from their system and pass you on from person to person until you hang up.I end up spending a total of £300 on baggage extra and flight change.I was at the airport with 2 baggage when only 1 is allowed.I had no choice but to pay and was given wrong return flight.


better off pay the extra £2 to £10 INSTEAD OF ENDING PAYING 10 TIMES AS MUCH.
