please avoid cheapoair

I purchased tickets that I found out cost 2.5 times (!!) more than buying via airline website directly and they refused to do anything about it. Please avoid using this company

What exactly do you expect them to do. It's a free market economy, they offered you flights at greatly inflated prices and you chose to buy them and at the same time agreed to their T&C's. More fool you. Sorry but any company with 'Cheapo' in their title should send be viewed with caution. You didn't bother to research them and you didn't even check directly booked prices. You are their prime target. You've been done over and there is absolutely nothing you can do.

Wendy, I'm afraid you are late to the party. There are about 80 threads on this forum going back years saying exactly the same thing.

Research first.

You have just learnt a hard lesson in life.

Take it on the chin and move on. In future, do a little homework before you part with your money not after.

There is nothing you can do and Cheapoair have not in this case gone anything wrong.

Checking out prices when shopping for anything is basic 101 stuff, unless Cheapoair have developed a new app that makes a 250lb gorilla armed with a baseball bat stand behind you until you press the "buy" there is no reason an explanation-just a smug grin on their faces

On and on it goes.........How many times has it been not just on Trip Advisor, but numerous other websites ?

Do the reasearch BEFORE you buy , not AFTER you have lost your money.

Sorry but what is it about buying airline tickets that turns people's brains into mush? Would you buy a car, a sofa, a book, a vacuum cleaner without checking prices elsewhere first?

Then why the heck would you not do the same with airline tickets ?

I have said it before, and will say it again - just the name "cheapoair" should tell people that it's pretty unreliable or dodgy.

Before I book anything on a new or different website I google it's name and the words "reviews and complaints" and see what pops up. Doing that allows me to avoid nasty booking experiences.
