Has anyone actually had a good experience? It seems the majority of you have had a bad experience.
I have done searches on websites such as Opodo, Travelstart, eDreams, CheapoAir, Faregeek etc. and I know what the complaints are. There are a few exceptions who had a good experience but am I only hearing the nasty side to these websites? It does seem you're more likely to voice your complaints on the internet instead of singing their praises.
I'm trying to fly out of Helsinki mid-April to Hong Kong for 5 days then New Zealand. I'm really apprehensive about booking from these websites now. I have tried going direct to the airlines but I can't find the same deal. The prices are double to quadruple what's quoted on these websites. I'd have to miss the Hong Kong stop in that case and pay a hefty price to get home. I'll be traveling between Finland and New Zealand in future so I can't afford to pay direct to the airlines each time.
Would you strongly advise me against using these sites? Any feedback would be very much appreciated, thanks!
