Omega Travel Milton Keynes

Hi,

Beware if you experience a problem with an online booking! I have taken 5 days & numerous lengthy phonecalls to sort out a flight booking with them. Long waits on the phone to speak with someone, staff who don't seem to have good knowledge of how to deal with an issue.

Very frustrating people to deal with, I'll never use them again however cheap their flight deals are.

You have discovered one of the perils of booking flights via a 3rd party - poor after sales service.

Out of interest what flights are involved, any reason you did not book direct with the airline and how much did you save by going with a 3rd party.

You might also want to delete your duplicate post.

Hi,

Return fare to Oman with Swiss booked via Skyscanner £401 return fare. I made a stupid error when booking and it cost me £150 to put right!!

I am in the process of complaining as I told them within minutes about the error but they went ahead regardless and wouldn't budge. Taking it up with Swiss.

Hey ho, you learn from your mistakes (or should).

I won't be posting any further comments re this episode.

Signing off.

"Return fare to Oman with Swiss booked via Skyscanner £401 "

Nooo. You didn't book via SkyScanner as SkyScanner doesn't sell tickets. It is simply a search engine.

Oh the irony. If you are going to get any two words wrong in a post complaining about wrongly spelled surnames and whose fault it is ......
