Beware of Dooley vacation online pricing.

We recently purchased a package with Dooley Vacations online. Within 24 hours they called us to say the price was posted wrong and the actual price was almost 3 times as much. We told them we expected them to honor the listed price. We were willing to do some negotiating but they offered a small discount and wouldn't budge. The customer service rep. seemed very nervous and agitated. I thought we were still going to be able to negotiate something with them but they just decided to cancel our package and refund our money without any further notice. I would definitely NOT book a vacation with this company.

They handle their car rental division in the same friendly fashion.

We booked this vacation last August for Travel Feb 18th to 24th and paid approx $750.00 per person traveling. Saw it advertised again on travelzoo 2 weeks ago for $100.00 less per person. Adare manor is beautiful and the villas are lovely but there were some maintence issues. Shower handles coming off, showers not draining and broken glass on the kitchen floor after trash was removed.

But the scam is in the car rental. Add about 150 euros for additional insurance. I was given a ford Galaxy with a broken wing mirror. I insisted they note the scratches down the left hand side of the car but did not check the tires. When I returned the car a nick about the size of your baby fingernail was in one tire completely consistent with the previous damage. It cost me 200 euros. Avoid Dooley rent a car at all costs.
