The Airline Network part of Gold Medal Travel Group plc. Having arranged my accommodation in Florida, timeshare exchange. I decided to use the internet to book my flights to Florida. I first turned to MyTravel (Airtours) web site - no flights available. Then I tried Thompson flights available cost £619 to Sanford Airport. The I used Yahoo to find suitable flights and was directed to Airlines Network, with who I booked flights for £478. They were able to find flights that allowed me to fly from Manchester Uk to Orlando via Philadelphia and to return from Tampa via Philadelphia to Manchester. I will be flying with US Airways. Watch out for my opinion of US Airways later in the year. Note the only draw back with the Airline Network was that they charge 1% to use a credit card. I then attempted to book a car. Firstly I when direct to Dollar quoted £500 plus for two week car hire. Next I tried Hertz quoted £420. Finally tried the Airline Network quoted £416, to rent a Dollar Car, which after phoning was added to my outstanding invoice which I will be paying by cheque. My advice would be to check out the web site to get a quote and then phone them on 08702410097 so that you only have to use your credit card to leave a deposit. Hope other members find this information useful.
Airline Networks. This is the first time I have ever used them, and I was pleasantly surprised. Not being a frequent flyer, I have never really had to buy airline tickets on line, in fact, I have only ever brought one before, and that was with EasyJet to Inverness. So I was venturing into uncharted territory when buying my latest ticket. A 3 month return to Tennessee with British Airways. Now unfortunately, I am not lucky in the sense, I can just book the fastest flight, first class and not worry about the cost. So I needed good price. I started looking on Expedia.co.uk and they seemed to offer the best ticket prices on the Web, that I could find. Until someone mentioned Airline Network. Not having anything to lose, I gave them a try. What they produced was the same flight as what Expedia was offering, but £1 cheaper. Not really a difference to quibble over, but obviously could match Expedia for price. Obviously I wanted the best service, so it came down to booking. When trying to reserve the ticket on Expedia, I was faced with all sorts of tasks, and found I had to first become a member and have all these silly junk mail people given my address so they could send me stuff. I usually give sites like that my Hotmail address and never actually check it, so don't care what they send. But unfortunately, the same address was to be used for sending confirmation emails etc, so it had to be my main address. That put them on the back burner. Time to try out Airline Network. I confidently opened up trusty old DooYoo and went to see what others had to say. Darn. Only one opinion, and well, it wasn't exactly the most informative in terms of what I wanted to know, but they rated them good, so I picked up the phone. This is where they really got my money. None of this plinky plink music and pressing every number on the phone in menus. Got on the phone to a nice young lady and got down to business (buying the ticket that is).
I was very impressed with the help and service they offered. Looking through and going through with me the various options open to me, we eventually decided on the British Airways flight, and cost was almost the same, as the previous Delta flight. Then she went through working out dates and times, in order to meet US immigrations strict standards and time tables, as well as obviously not wanting to make my contact the other end turn out to a small airport at midnight on her own. She then went through and sorted out travel insurance, which was a very competitive rate, and I was surprised at how cheap it was, especially for 3 months in the US, and in today's situations. This was then worked out and finalised. So far there has been no pressure from her, none of this, 'I can only offer you this if you sign now' rubbish you get. It seemed selling the ticket wasn't the ambition, and she was talking to me friendly, while she went through the usual computer crashes and freezing common these days. Once the main details were worked out, before she actually took payment and committed me, she went through things like, seats? Did I want a window seat? I said yes, because 9 hours on a plane on your own is boring enough as it is, might as well look at the big fish pond. And this was fine on all flights apart from the main flight out. Where there was no window seats available. But instead of just saying no, sorry no seats, she started ringing the airline and asking them to make one available because I was travelling alone, and went out of her way to try and get one. (probably some poor dear has been informed she has lost her seat now because of me. Oops) Sorted out if I wanted any special meals, or help etc during the flight, and then, and only then, did we get onto the painful bit of handing over my hard earned cash. This was done with no problems, and no hidden charges. What they said the cost would be at the start, was exactly what
I paid. There was no sudden appearance of £60 airport tax, £100 transfer charges etc. only thing was a £5 MasterCard charge, which I actually had been informed of, but had just forgotten. 3 days later I get my invoice and the tickets in the post. The invoice was wrong, with the departure date, and amount paid, but after ringing them, it wasn't actually wrong, it was just the invoice was slightly out, and a new one was on the way to me immediately. So, from not having a clue how to go about buying plane tickets, to being the owner of a return to Tennessee in 30 mins, was pretty good going. So, over all? Great. I don't know anything I can fault them on, yet! Remember I am still in the UK, and not flown out yet, so theres still time (if your reading this after the 14th Oct 2001, and there has been no updates, then assume all went to plan) Customer service is the best I have experienced from ANY company. And help and value was great. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for tickets online. The URL is up there and the phone number is 0800 727747
After failing to get our imminent flights to Las Vegas booked with Flightbookers (ebookers) due to their "We will not be beaten on Price or Service" guarantee not being true , we tried Airline Network via www.netflights.com Their on-line booking system was very straight forward and easy to use. No penalty for using a Credit Card either , the 1 - 1.5% fee that some companies charge is very annoying. The confirmation came through in 4 days , very clear and easy to understand. Overall , we have been very impressed with them and can strongly recommend them to other users.
