A travel friend emailed me yesterday, saying she and her sister had bought round trip plane tickets to London and Dublin through asaptickets.com. My friend is flying out of Kansas City next September. Her ticket was $902.50.
I put in dates for our trip to France next year, and received a quote that's about $350 - $400 less than we've been finding elsewhere.
I checked the reviews on Trip Advisor, and almost all of them were negative, citing misleading quotes and large add-on fees. My friend said the price she paid actually was lower than the original quote, and the tickets are on United. I will say that all the reviews were old - like 2013 old.
You get a quote on the internet, then have to call a number to work out the details. Friend said the person they worked with was very accommodating, rearranging flight legs to make the trip more convenient.
Now, I'm not likely to buy through this agency, simply because the only time we bought tickets through a third party (i.e., not the airline itself) we had problems at every airport there and back. But I'm curious: has anyone on the Forum used this service, and if so, what happened?
I had never heard of this place until I got the email from a trusted friend.
