flight booking review review of a disappointing flight booking with different final price

The website, sometimes linked from other websites claiming to find secret deals for flights, usually does not deliver the promised price for the ticket. Therefore, we do not recommend using it, as you can see below.

During our TripMonster review, we were asked at the end of the flight booking procedure to pay much higher than the price for which we came on the website – therefore making us go back to a price comparison on websites such as WhereCanIFLY, Kayak‌ or Skyscanner‌ which have more reliable partners than that one.

The first step is to select the flight to book, usually coming from another affiliate website, which will claim that it is a secret fare, which is not true - they usually simply don't know how to compare flight prices, and did not even bother to check the flights on comparison websites such as Skyscanner, KAYAK, WhereCanIFLY, and others.

If the flight route found and price are correct, let's try to proceed with booking.

The passenger information form is simple, and does not allow to enter the frequent traveler information or dietery requirements.

Validating the order a first time, we are ready to book and don't want to lose time with useless extra insurances. useless and annoying pop-up

A first annoying extra insurance pop-up will appear, as the site tries to force the clients to add extra insurance to their orders - these insurances are usually included with any credit card payment.

The pop-up never stop, and they annoy us one after the other.

After getting read of the pop-up, when can again validate the order we would like to place for a flight.

They try to make us take extra useless service, such as some protections, which are totally unnecessary.

The user must refuse manually to have them, instead of having the option by default selected to no extra service, which a legit website would do. Unfortunately, is not a legit website.

A first waiting screen will ask us to wait while they confirm the initial price.

Another waiting screen asks the user to wait while they look for another real price, as the first fake price is never available. scam flight booking

When we finally get to the payment screen - or more like the payment type selection, we notice that the price is different from the one we wanted to buy.

This while we did not spend any time waiting.

The website did not secure the price even for 5 minutes, and made us lose a lot of precious valuable time closing useless pop-up, and saying no to unnecessary extra travel insurances. in summary

The website is not a legit website, and should be avoided as much as possible.

In any case, if you plan on booking with them, always double check the prices with other legit websites such as Skyscanner, WhereCanIFLY?, or Kayak‌ for example, to make sure that even their fake price is the cheapest.

Our TripMonster review is based on a real booking that we were about to make for ourselves. However, given the issues we have, we finished our TripMonster review by booking on another website.

However, when trying to book a flight with the US website, we did not experience the same issue, meaning that the final price to pay was really the price advertised.

Except for the recurring annoying popups that are trying to get us to buy unnecessary travel insurance‌ and other products like extra flight delay compensation‌ for a fee, the booking process‌ is smooth on the US version of their website, the airline tickets offered seemed to be fine.

A las dos de la tarde compré un pasaje en la página de tripmonster y habiendo pasado cinco horas y media aun no recibí los boletos por mail. Llame ya dos veces por teléfono habiendo las personas que me contestaron en español prometido que ya los emitirían en un ratito y enviarían en dos horas por mail. Ruego a Uds proceder a emitir mis pasajes y enviarlos a mi mail Gracias INGRID

Uma pena só ter lido isso agora. Fui enganada pelo Tripmonster do início ao final da compra. Além de aumentarem o valor inicial, me venderam um serviço que eu acreditei ser solicitação de bagagem extra, mas era somente um gerenciamento de serviço. Ou seja, não servia para nada e tive que pagar à parte a bagagem. Muito decepcionada, não recomendo.
