Trip.com is a great website with awesome prices, sometimes offering prices even cheaper than the prices found on partner comparison website after having clicked the link. The bookings are usually confirmed within 10 minutes of booking.

See below a full review of the trip.com website for a 2 nights booking for 2 persons in Sofia, Bulgaria, after having found the cheapest price online on WhereCanIFLY? travel price comparison website.

Trip.com hotel booking

The first step is to search for a hotel room, giving the destination city, the check-in and check-out date, the number of room occupants, adults and children, and eventual other search options.

Once the hotel has been selected, or coming directly from a comparison website on the hotel page, the fares will be displayed, and the eventual extra taxes as well.

After having selected a fare, even the cheapest one, you might be surprised to see another fare that is even cheaper, for the exact same booking at the same hotel.

Sometimes, especially when booking takes too long, it might be possible that the rate has changed.

However, this is not a scam, the hotel had genuinely increased the price during our check. We took more than an hour to decide, and the hotel was already getting full.

After seeing this message, we checked again on all comparison websites, using all standard methods, clearing cookies, using another browser, another IP address, another device (all of them proving again to be an urban legend), and the price did increase meanwhile, Trip.com was still offering the best rate for that booking.

The payment methods are numerous, but they all necessitate a credit card. There is no way to pay on Trip.com without a credit card, for example with PayPal, or another electronic payment method.

Trip.com hotel booking confirmation

After that, the website will submit the booking to the hotel, which is necessary to emit an electronic confirmation.

The hotel manual confirmation is necessary to generate any booking from a travel agency, therefore this operation might take some time, and sometimes might even fail, in case the hotel did not manage to provide a confirmation, became full meanwhile, or changed the booking conditions.

Smartfares is a great website to book flights, as shows our check on a round trip booking from Athens to Sofia, coming after trying another website which tried to charge us a 10% surcharge at payment for no reason.

The booking process on Smartfares is quick and efficient, without useless screens or them trying to show us pop-ups to get us to buy extra services we do not need and can even get for free without any travel agency.

We have found the best deal online with them while comparing prices online, the cheapest fare found on this route being offered by WhereCanIFLY?

Flixbus booking review

Bus Flixbus review booking

A great way to travel for cheap in Europe and North America, the Flixbus buses are easy to book. Their website is clear, and it is even possible to cancel a ticket for free in case of mistake, and book another one without paying again, using a discount code from the first cancellation.

Flixbus booking

The booking start by looking for cities deserved by Flixbus, which are numerous! Flixbus Europe for example is available in many countries, and new routes are regularly added, making it slowly more and more easy to travel with them, as their network of connection expands slowly but surely.

FlixBus.com | Explore Europe by Bus | Affordable & Safe with FlixBus‎

Flixbus booking review : Main search form
Main search form

The list of connections available on a day is clear, with exact departure and arrival times, duration, and the station, as in some cities there might be several stations.

For example, in Frankfurt, there is a Flixbus station at Frankfurt airport, another one in the city, and another one at the Southern bus station.

Prices are shown per connection, as each of them might have different price depending on schedule, number of changes, and occupation.

Selection a specific bus is pretty easy, and it is possible to redeem a Flixbus voucher at this stage, for example a voucher coming from a Flixbus ticket cancellation.

If the language or the currency are not correct according to your payment method, then the only way to change the currency is to change the language – and changing the language might also change the currency.

Common problems of international websites designed by people that have never left their home city… they do not understand that country is not synonym of language, and the inverse is also true.

For example, we wanted to browse the website in English, but pay in Euros, as our credit card in Euros, and we use English in general… but the combination of both is not possible.

Flixbus language and currency

Anyway, a large number of languages are available, but you might want to buy in the language of your credit card to avoid exchange fees, even if the language is not right for you:

Flixbus Bulgaria in Bulgarian,
Flixbus Bosnia in Bosnian,
Flixbus Catalonia in Catalan,
Flixbus Czech Republic in Czech,
Flixbus Denmark in Danish,
Flixbus Germany in German,
Flixbus global in English,
Flixbus Spain in Spanish,

eDreams flights booking review

Website to avoid, as they advertise prices that are not available at checkout with a sudden 10% price surge after a very long booking process. Disappointing.

eDreams booking

When looking for a flight from Athens Greece to Sofia Bulgaria, we have found a great price on eDreams cheap flights booking website.

The catch? At the end of the booking process, when submitting our payment details information, the price suddenly went up of 10%, from 131€ price to 144€ booking price.

We of course abandoned the process, looked again online, and found the same flight for 132€ on another website, using the flight comparison website wcifly.com.

Therefore, we do not recommend using eDreams to book flights, unless absolutely necessary.

Don’t be surprised if at the end of the booking process, the flight price suddenly goes up 10%!

Your travel agency: Book cheap flights – eDreams International
Cheap flights and hotels on WhereCanIFLY?

eDreams tickets

The website is generally clear, but is turned in the way of making you buy extra and useless services, such as insurances, paid seat, and other services that you anyway have for free for the seat selection, or probably have included with your credit card payment for the insurances.

Also, it offers to add extra checked luggage, for a higher price than doing it online with the airline.

Most of their services are useless, and a waste of time – especially considering that at the end of the booking process, they will take the price 10% up, while other online booking agencies are offering cheaper prices without any hidden checkout price change.

The succession of screen is terrible. It takes so many steps to even get to the payment form, nearly twice as much as competition, and all that for nothing, if you are courageous enough to start it again on another website to save the 10% extra charge that they suddenly added at the end of the booking process, without any reason.

At the end, this sudden price surge is explained by the website as “the airline has changed the ticket price, meaning that you have to pay a higher price”.

Well… we did find the original price on another website, using the excellent price comparison website wcifly.com. Thank you eDreams and goodbye.
