Studying via the responses right here, I’ve had a really totally different expertise which can be related relying on the particulars of you journey and your state of affairs. I’ve traveled many, many occasions forwards and backwards to the Republic of Armenia and Georgia, and broadly all through Europe and the transcaucasus area, having household there. I reside in america as a everlasting resident, and have by no means had issues touring there or about earlier than, till this time. With my father struggling a stroke, and in an more and more unstable situation, I booked journey via Travelocity, which related me via two European cities, Frankfurt and Vienna, earlier than persevering with on to Yerevan, Armenia. Observe within the means of finishing my reservation, I did be aware to verify my paperwork for visa necessities for my FINAL vacation spot, which I did. So I arrive on the airport, baggage in hand, with contingent plans at my vacation spot with household and was turned away by the airline, and had my reservation canceled. I used to be directed to contact Travelocity, together with one other group of vacationers having the EXACT similar difficulty having booked via Travelocity – apparently this can be a constant factor with individuals who have used their service. After two hours of forwards and backwards on the airport, we attempt to subject an unbiased clear up with no assist forthcoming from Travelocity customer support, and head again house. I continued the irritating journey for solutions the following day with their customer support staff who had zero solutions for me, and proceed to switchboard me to new individuals in a maddening cycle of confusion, till I’m lastly informed there’s nothing they’ll do for me, and put me onto the airline who says additionally they can do nothing for me, aside from present me with credit score contingent on a better future ticket price, plus a $340 change price, plus adjustment in journey fare. To offer you all a style of what this truly means, I had them run a separate ticket fare utilizing this credit score and the extra greenback quantity together with change price and adjusted fare for my vacation spot was over $4000 – on prime of my “credit score.” So, so, so useful. So my $1300 is an entire wash and I really feel like my cash was stolen. A fast search now reveals this is a matter many, many individuals have encountered, to related ends. How onerous wouldn’t it be to place a system redundancy in place to alert vacationers to middleman transit visa points like this, outdoors of apparent ultimate vacation spot visa points? SO INFURIATING. In the event that they abided by their “buyer invoice of rights” I’d at the least have a clear up or some readability at hand – zero help. All that is to say, don’t use Travelocity. I’ve now booked a separate ticket leaving tomorrow, and having alerted them to me being a everlasting resident, they supplied an itinerary with ONE European transit level, as a substitute of two, thereby permitting me zero transit visa points en path to my ultimate vacation spot. Solely price me a further $1600. Steep value, however lesson realized. Be forewarned, do your analysis on Travelocity earlier than you utilize their service. It could price you rather more in actual phrases, past the minor financial savings marketed in a direct fare comparability with different related providers. My recommendation – e book with a service who has your greatest pursuits in thoughts and who care about you and your buyer expertise, not simply your cash. Or as different commenters stated, attempt to e book instantly with the airways; most likely well worth the minor further headache of coordinating all the things independently.
