I have a $600 credit from a COVID impacted trip. I’ve called several times and no one answers. I’ve emailed and no one returns my email. This is the worse company that I’ve ever dealt with and I warn everyone… Don’t EVER use this company. I’m filing fraud charges against them, too.

Had booked airlines thru Funjet for a trip to Punta Cana.... Tested COVID positive 2 days before the trip.. Despite sending my test results, they would not even give me airline credit, forget about a refund!!!! Spent two hours on the phone with them, but they refused to budge. So much for being honest with them. DON'T EVER BOOK WITH FUNJET- EVER!!!!

Original review: May 16, 2022

We planned a trip for the summer of 2020 but due to Covid we had to cancel. We were told by our travel agent that we have a credit for Funjet Travel and SW Airlines Travel that is valid until 11/22/22. In April 2022, I tried to plan a trip for the end of July 2022 only to be told by Funjet that our SW Airlines travel credit is only valid until 6/14/22. I have the email with the dates we were promised and I have called Funjet NUMEROUS times to resolve this and no one there seems to know what to do. There are never any supervisors/managers available to speak with. I have also emailed customer service at Funjet 12 times and not a single response. Honestly, I don't know how they are in business! Looks like we will lose out on our credit. I will NEVER do business with them again.

Original review: April 21, 2022

Some friends and I organized a trip through an agent. While we were discussing the trip, the agent told us to purchase Trip Protection. She told us the cost and of course I thought that was a great idea. She worked up the trip and I paid my deposit. We ended up not going on the trip so I requested a refund. According to the Travel Protection, I was supposed to be protected for any reason the trip was cancelled. I emailed the agent on March 1st to request that my trip be cancelled and to request a refund. She replied back that evening that she'd sent a request to cancel the trip and request a refund. I emailed her again on March 17th to inquire about the status of my refund.

I received a response from her on March 19th that stated that she would check on it because she thought I would've received my REFUND by then. I texted her again on March 24th to find out what the hold up was with my refund. She said she'd send another inquiry and she would escalate the issue. On April 5th, I contacted her again since I hadn't received my refund. She said she had reached out to Funjet a few days ago. I contacted her again on April 18th since I hadn't received my refund. She finally contacted me today and told me that I wouldn't receive a cash refund. I'd only receive a credit since they'd purchased my flight already and the ticket was non-refundable. So they'd give me a credit. I wasn't happy with that.

I called customer service directly to inquire about receiving a refund since the Travel Protection said I would receive one if the trip were cancelled for any reason. That is when I was told that I only had the basic travel protection that will give me TRAVEL CREDITS if the trip were cancelled. There is a more expensive Travel Protection policy that would've given me cash back minus the price of the insurance. I WAS NOT MADE AWARE THAT THERE WERE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRAVEL PROTECTION. Had I known, I would've paid for the more expensive policy to ensure that I receive my CASH BACK instead of travel credit.

This is NOT my fault. I am entitled to my cash refund. In this economy with everything so unsure, I cannot afford to have almost $800 just sitting there in travel credits. I am very disappointed in this company. I think that this is very unfair that I am being penalized because I was not told of the more expensive insurance to guarantee my cash back for a cancelled trip. Be very wary of doing business with this company.

Cancelled our trip within 24 hours due to a family issue that sprung up. First was told 7 days, then it was 30 to 60 days. IT DOES NOT take that long to send an electronic refund. Called several times and no one is able to help

I’m having a horrible experience with Funjet. One agent told me I could get a refund within 7 days because I cancelled within 24 hours. The other agent said 50-60 days. It doesn’t take that long to refund anyone. They just choose to do so. This is not ok! Companies just don’t have integrity anymore. It’s horrible!

I’ve used Funjet several times and usually have had a satisfactory experience. Last spring I booked two reservations to Cozumel. When my reservation for airline tickets stopped showing on the airline's website stopped showing I called Funjet. Spending literally hours trying to get the reservations changed. I finally was able to rebook. The agent combined the two reservations into one. The other couple purchased travel insurance on their portion of the trip. We did not. A week before the trip the tiger couple had to cancel due to Covid. My husband and I made the trip. I called and canceled their part of the trip. Now I’ve been battling since last fall trying to get their travel credits. I’ve spent hours and hours on the phone. They refuse to credit their full amount even though they had the insurance. They are crediting less than half. I’ve received various reasons why and many different excuses. We will NEVER travel with them again!

I booked flights with Funjet on Nov. 7, 2021 for a trip to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in March 2022. I was notified by E-Mail on Jan. 21, 2022 from Frontier airlines that my flights were changed. The changes were not acceptable, so I called Funjet/Frontier and requested a cancellation/refund on Jan. 25, 2022. After multiple phone calls to Funjet and trying to talk to representatives from India and Columbia, I was hung up on several times. I was finally notified on Feb. 3, 2022 by E-Mail from Frontier that my flight was cancelled and refunded back to Funjet. After several more E-Mails to Funjet, I still have not gotten any answers or refund/credit from Funjet and it now Feb. 23, 2022. This has been the worst experience ever and I would not recommend using Funjet to book any trips to anyone!

We booked a flight to Florida in Nov and the flight was cancelled. Told at end of January 2022 that our refund was approved. Called in mid-Feb and told we had to wait 14 days. When I said I did, he said I had to wait 14 business days and was very rude! Called again today, 2/21 and was on the phone for almost an hour with them playing games about who was to refund us, the amount (much less that what we paid), and needing to talk with management or another department… Very disorganized company and no confirmation number to prove my refund was actually processed. Don’t waste your time or money with Funjet- go through a reputable company!

Thought I was going to be charged for my whole vacation when I used uplift so, I cancelled thinking I did the reservation wrong. Called customer service only to have them tell me that I would only have one vacation but, turns out I have 2. Now I’m being charged twice by uplift because of there mistake and I’m being told that they need to make a decision on if I should be refunded the for the same duplicate vacation. It’s the same dates going to the same place. Same hotel. All the details are virtually the same and they are telling me I might not getting my money back! Do not! I repeat Do Not go through Funjet! It is not worth your time or money! I will never use them again! They are horrible. This is the first and last time I use them. Go through another agency. It’s not worth the hassle or dealing with calls from India. Worst mistake of my life.

My family and I booked a vacation package through Funjet from Philadelphia to Cancun. Our return flight was canceled by the airline due to weather. We did not receive any notice from either airline nor funjet in regards to this cancellation. I attempted to contact funjet to get assistance with this issue, and wait times were a minimum of 90+ minutes!! After both my wife and I waited 90 minutes, we were informed that the wait time was still at least 75 minutes! These wait times are clearly unacceptable. We then requested a call back and never received a call back. We were fortunate enough to be able to book return flights at another time, but had to pay for them ourselves.

Upon returning home, I attempted to contact funjet on multiple occasions, however it seems that it is purposely difficult to find the “after travel” department. There is no direct number at which they can be contacted, therefore you must call the general line, wait at least 30 minutes to be assisted, then they require you to be transferred to the after travel department, which is another 80-90 minute wait. The call back service failed on multiple attempts. I also requested an email to be able to contact this department, and was provided with a dead end email address. AFTERTRAVEL@funjet.com DOES NOT exist, and you will receive an immediate “failure to deliver” message from your email provider.

Once I finally was able to communicate with an actual representative of the after travel department, they were very apologetic and wanted to help, but were incapable of offering any real solutions to my issue. I was assured I would receive an email soon after our conversation, however, it has currently been over 5 hours and I have received no such correspondence. This is clearly a situation where the systems set up assist with after travel issues are extremely poor. The customer service is severely lacking and requires drastic improvements. I would never book travel through funjet again, and could not recommend their services to any travelers. I hope this helps.

I purchased tickets to Punta Cana in summer of 2021 for a trip in December. I also purchased travel protection. We had to cancel the trip before I paid the remaining balance. It took an hour to finally reach someone and they told me I could only get a travel credit, not a refund. After numerous calls and more hours on hold I finally reached someone that explained there was another option of travel insurance which cost more money to get an actual cash refund and that I had 7 days after initial purchase to upgrade to this insurance. Fast forward to Jan 2022 and I want to book another trip (only to use the $2300 they’re currently holding hostage) and it says my travel credit has not been completed. Terrible company that is purely a scam. DO NOT USE THEM. I wish I could give negative stars for this debacle.

Currently on hold for 2 hours and two emails later without one contact. Charged entire vacation versus deposit even deposit was highlighted as payment. While on hold cancelled hoping to start fresh once refunded. However the only ONE contact # is useless. I just literally made the reservation this afternoon and immediately canceled. It does not take 30-90 days to electronically refund in 2022! The hotel is not that busy to be on hold for 2 hours. I will be contacting Dateline, IG, TikTok, 20/20, 60 minutes about this scam of company Funjet.

We used FUNJET to travel to Jamaica over Christmas 2021. The resort we chose (based on our travel agent's recommendation) was absolutely terrible the staff was incredibly rude. Our rooms are booked very very far from the main part of the resort and we spent hours having them moved closer. My sister's daughter ended up testing positive for covid 19 and the resort was absolutely terrible about accommodation. She did not receive meals on time and it was terrible trying to get her home. We ended up having to book flights on our own because the travel agent was of no help. I wish I would have known. I will never ever use funjet ever again to book a vacation. There were 17 of us and you better believe we will tell everyone we know not to ever use funjet.

I originally used FunJet to book a trip with my HS class reunion back in 2020, however it was cancelled due to COVID. I was told by my travel agent that I would receive a bonus 30% credit to use the funds in the future with FunJet. Almost a year later, I was told that I would lose all travel credits if I did not use them by a certain date, so I found a staycation for my lady and I. The cost was more than my total travel credit, so I paid the difference on my credit card. Upon departure from the lodging, I was given the final bill/invoice which was $400 cheaper than what I had paid. My travel agent confirmed what I paid and directed me to FunJet customer service. My trip was on Dec 3 and to date, I have either been ignored or placed on endless hold (twice I've held the phone for over an hour).

I even received an email reply telling me, "Please understand that due to increased excitement to book incredible vacations our wait times may be longer than expected and we are currently unable to accept requests for call backs at this time." If I'm reading that correctly, they're basically saying that they're dealing with the new suckers, and the previous ones have to wait. Indefinitely. My next visit is to the Better Business Bureau and then to a local news station that looks into consumer fraud.

I booked a vacation and had to cancel and rebook it. The agent told me he was applying the credit from my last booking to the new reservation. He did not and I am receiving threatening e mails saying my trip will be cancelled in 3 days! I tried to correct this by an email. They will not apply the credit. I demanded to have a manager call me. They replied that they do not reply. In addition, I am being price gouged $240 for a disabled person to sit near the front of the airline.

Original review: Dec. 11, 2021

My husband and I booked our honeymoon using Funjet. We went to RIU Palace in Costa Rica. Our experience was horrible and contacted funjet to let them know about our experience. They asked us to provide a detailed review of the resort and we included photos to document our experience. This "resort" was so horrible we changed our flights to leave early and would have left even earlier if there were flights available to do so. This resort ruined our entire honeymoon - we planned on utilizing the resort's all-inclusive food but it was inedible so we went out to lunches and dinners to avoid eating at the resort (none of the food was as described) and our room was absolutely disgusting (vomit on the wall, dirty tubs, mold in the bidet, dirty sheets, & horrible smell).

We expressed that we enjoyed one day total at the resort - we were supposed to be there for 6 days but stayed for 4 (again, would have left earlier if there was a flight). We spent a lot of money on flights and had to pay for all of our additional lunches dinners. We were hoping funjet would try to make this up to us by providing most of our money back. Instead, we were refunded for less than 2 days (I had asked for 5 our of 6 days to be refunded). When I think of my honeymoon I will think of this horrible, disgusting resort and this terrible company, funjet, that didn't seem to care that our entire honeymoon was ruined and it cost us thousands of dollars.

Original review: Nov. 16, 2021

I felt I should share about the experiences I had the past few months as a travel consultant with different client reservations. Please keep in mind, most times when I call Funjet, it is a 45 minute to 1 hour wait to get through to a Funjet agent on the phone. Hopefully Hyatt will get Funjet in order.

1. Funjet processed the wrong Future Travel Credit even though I confirmed the hotel cancellation policy and Future Travel Credit with three different Funjet agents prior to cancelling. The issues first began when the hotel cancellation policy showed up incorrectly in their system for the reservation. When making the booking, the hotel was never a "non-refundable" hotel rate. However, after making the booking the confirmation read – “Cancellations at this hotel may be non-refundable. Please contact us for more information.” I asked the Funjet agent to call up the hotel and ask what the cancellation policy is, but the reservation had just been made and hadn’t passed over to the hotel though. He told me to contact the hotel myself the next day.

A few weeks later, I called Funjet again to ask what the hotel cancellation policy was. After an hour on the phone, the Funjet agent told me he got transferred and disconnected by the hotel so I should call the hotel up myself. So I did, but the hotel informed me the reservation was made through Funjet and refused to tell me what the cancellation policy was. The hotel said the cancellation policy has already been provided to Funjet and to ask Funjet. I then called Funjet a third time about the hotel cancellation policy. The Funjet agent spoke with the hotel and told me as long as I cancel by Nov 9 (4 days prior to arrival), it was fully refundable and she put notes on the reservation about who she spoke with at the hotel.

The following day (on Nov 9) I called Funjet to cancel the reservation for my client and the Funjet agent said he had to call up the hotel again to re-confirm the hotel cancellation policy. He spoke with the hotel and got the same information as the previous agent, but then said he needed an email from the hotel stating hotel cancellation policy before processing the cancellation. He forgot to ask for the name of the hotel person he spoke with, which he should have done, so he had to call the hotel back. After an hour on the phone with him, while waiting for him to get the name at the hotel, our phone got disconnected and he never called me back even though I provided my call back number.

A few hours later, I called Funjet and asked another Funjet agent to cancel the reservation. She said the hotel is not an issue, it is refundable if we cancel today. She gave me the exact amount of Future Travel Credit my client would be receiving - $4105.43. A few days later Funjet set me $280 in Future Travel Credit. So I called Funjet again about why the Future Travel Credit was completely wrong. I was told that the hotel needs to send an email stating the hotel cancellation policy because Funjet processed the hotel as 100% non-refundable. This happened after all the phone calls verifying the hotel cancellation policy. So I spent an hour on the phone waiting for the Funjet agent to get an email from the hotel.

After receiving the email form the hotel, the Funjet agent told me he had to attach it as a file into a form for accounting to reprocess the Future Travel Credit. However, his system doesn't allow him to create a file to attach. I spent another hour on the phone waiting for the Funjet agent to figure out how to attach the hotel email as a file to the form for accounting. I spent extra two hours on the phone to get the correct Future Travel Credit amount for my client because Funjet can’t figure out the hotel cancellation policy. All in all, I wasted 8 hours of my life on the phone calling Funjet because Funjet didn’t know what the hotel cancellation policy was, and processed the cancellation incorrectly as 100% non-refundable when it was refundable.

2. Funjet never exchanged/reissued my client's airline tickets when they changed their dates. The day prior to departure, my clients went online to check-in and discovered their flights were cancelled and they had nothing booked. Evidently the Funjet agent that did the change didn't complete the form to request tickets to be exchange/reissued. I had to frantically call in and hold for 30 minutes while they got someone in the air department to exchange the ticket. If you have any itinerary changes, check directly with the airline to ensure Funjet actually reissued the tickets for you.

3. Funjet agents overcharged one reservation $900 and tried to overcharge another reservation by $600 because they don't know how to choose the lowest price for a specific room category. Make sure you go online and view the pricing before calling up Funjet to do an itinerary change. On one reservation, there were 3 different price points for the exact same room category. Instead of choosing the lowest price, the Funjet agent chose the highest price. This happened on 2 different reservations. Do your own price research first directly on Funjet’s website.

4. Funjet agents refuse to assist when they are supposed to. When my client tested Covid positive and needed to change his dates, I asked Funjet to contact the hotel to request a waiver on the hotel cancellation fee. The agent refused to and told me to contact the hotel directly myself. So I did, and the hotel easily agreed to a waiver when I provided the Covid positive document as proof. However, the hotel said that the reservation is through Funjet, so Funjet is required to submit in waiver request directly to the hotel, it can't go through me. I had to call up Funjet again to ask them to do it again.

After changing the dates to the following week, my client still tested positive from the virus though he was symptom free, so I had to change the date again, further out. I called up Funjet to change the dates a second time and the agent refused to do allow me to change it. He said I am only allowed one change per reservation. This is NOT true. 4 other agents had told me I can do changes when needed, there is not rule you are only allowed 1 change. I had to call back and get another agent who was willing to help. You may have to call back numerous times to get an agent willing to assist you because some of them aren't willing to when they are supposed to.

5. Funjet agent messed up on trying to charge payment for the change and almost lost availability. Wasted an hour of my life on the phone. To begin with, I couldn't hear the agent between a loud church bell outside his open window, his dog continuously barking, and his child screaming, crying, yelling, and talking not once but throughout the hour on the phone. Besides his unprofessionalism, when we finally got to the payment screen, I had to give the street address like 6 times before he understood it, his English was not good. I was afraid he typed something wrong with the payment information.

When he tried to charge the card, payment was declined. Instead of verifying the payment information with me to ensure he got it all correct, he first blamed the Funjet system. All, the entire system is down, no one can make any payments. This wasn't true at all. Then he decided to go out of the booking and try to do the whole thing again. However, when he tried this, the availability was gone, and we could no longer book it. I recommend you quickly insist on verifying payment information because an agent tries to go out of the reservation and redo everything, causing you to lose availability.

6. Funjet agent didn't put proper notes on the reservation even though I had requested it 3 separate times. I was going to be out of town over the weekend, and my client needed to do a last minute change because he never got his passport. I spoke with Funjet and requested 3 times in the phone call to properly note the reservation that I give approval for my client to call in directly and make the change over the weekend. The client assured me he would but never did. When my client called in to do the change, Funjet wouldn't let him, he spent 4 hours on the phone trying to get it done. I had to contact Funjet again while out of town. I would just emphasize you make sure the notes you requested are on the reservation before hanging up if it's something important.

7. Funjet agents gave me wrong information multiple times. I was given the wrong date to cancel by to avoid cancellation penalties, the wrong cancellation penalty amount, and the wrong date that transfers had to be added onto the reservation by. I suspected they were wrong when they didn't match up with what I was seeing on the confirmation and in the Terms and Conditions. You can't trust the agents to give you right information.

I so regret not reading the reviews prior to booking my vacation. WARNING DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY, they do not care to accommodate their customers when they provide incorrect information. Covid is new to everyone and understand Funjet that we all are adjusting. We never asked for refund just for you to allow postponing a few months. You have proven that you're only out for the money. I may not shut your company down but I definitely will get the word out. Word of mouth can make or break a company and I'm going to do my part to ensure on every platform that you are exposed to who you really are. You don't deserve any stars, karma is definitely coming back your way one way or another.

I had scheduled a trip with FunJets in April of 2020. Due to COVID it was cancelled and was issued a “credit” of 125% at a later date. Then fast forward to now when I went to use it and they said my credit was given to another person planned to go on the trip on accident and used all my $1,250 worth of credit. Then proceeded to tell me they couldn’t do anything about it and that I was just out the money I paid. Also, 2 hour plus wait time for outsourced nonsense that is not helpful AT ALL!! ZERO ZERO ZERO STARS!!!

I ALWAYS book through major airlines sites but wanted a direct flight so I gave Funjet a try. I booked funjet through UVC, and unfortunately I had to cancel my reservation 22 days from departure. The flight was being conducted on Allegiant air whose cancellation policy is is ONE WEEK (168 HOURS) prior to travel. The representative I spoke to a the phone who continued saying "because you are within 30 days of travel, your cancellation fee is 100% non refundable"... Just say, "We won't give you your money back nor transfer you to a later booking." I can understand forfeiture of the fare but not refunding for "upgrades" and "prepaid luggage fees" is completely unacceptable.

The representative I spoke with told me that I could reach out to an escalation department (via email) and plead my case because I was cancelling for extenuating circumstances... The email addresses provided was a dead link (mailer daemon). Directing me to an email channel when I am already on the phone (after being on hold for an hour and a half to talk to some) is a nice tricky way to get someone off the phone so they stop bothering you... So basically I was told, "here, email someone who cares...no one". Had I booked any other major airline I would have been well within their cancellation period. I will never book with this company again and recommend others beware.

30 hours after booking my Florida weekend trip with Funjet, I followed up with the airline to check for reservations and discovered that my booked flight which Funjet sold to me was not on airline schedule. I reached out to Funjet, submitted pictures of the airline schedules and asked for details about my flight, but Funjet reassured me that there were no changes to my original booking, all remained the same. If I would have been informed that there was a change to my flight I would have not continued with my full payment. And at that time, I still had the option to add Travel Protection Plus premium since it can be added within 7 days of initial deposit. (As stated in Funjet General Cancellation Terms&Conditions.)

18 days after my inquiry with funjet and shortly after I made final payments, ALG sent an email informing us of a change in the departure flight but never informed us of a cancelled return flight. After getting stories from Funjet that flights are not refundable and not guaranteed, I reached out to the airline, with proof that Funjet sold us flights that were not available with the airline to begin with and Funjet staff misinformed us about the flights when we inquired about it within 30 hours from booking. Airline agreed to full refund to the original method of payment. (You hear about of these sorts of scam from third party vendors but now this is Funjet). Funjet is denying a refund to my credit card for the land portion (even though the hotel has a cancellation policy 3 days prior to arrival we are 6-7 weeks away). Funjet is charging me $200.00 for cancelled reservation, accusing me of a voluntary cancellation. I did not cancel my reservations, funjet did.

They emailed me about changes weeks later after having information from the airline, failed to notify me of a cancelled flight (as confirmed with airline) and refused to provide alternative airline. CS representative herself told me that all I need to do is to cancel and start looking for a new package with a new airline. Funjet sold a service which was not available at the time of booking and have not taken any measures to provide an alternative airline since the originally booked airline does not have flights available on our scheduled dates. How is this a voluntary cancellation? I don’t want to cancel I want to go on my trip.

This appears like a scam to me! I cannot believe that I am dealing with ALG, with an elite travel group. I have never received such unprofessional customer service. One of the reasons I use ALG, and not other booking options because of their long experience in the industry and expecting an exceptional CS but it is not the case with Funjet. When I ask to speak to a supervisor, CSR refuses to put a supervisor on call. A few times the call was dropped by CS. I spend days and long hours on the phone pushed from department to department. When I ask for email addresses, they provide invalid emails. Submitted many emails with proof of all documents and no one there cares to review anything, they all respond like robots with the same memorized response and without any courtesy to the customers.

How do they get away with this? Most people forget that ALG, Apple Leisure Group now acquired by Hyatt owns and operates under Funjet, Apple Vacations, Cheapcarribbean and many other such as United and Southwest vacations (so don’t be fooled when you think those are separate companies and you are booking with their competitors). Regretfully, not! Seems like a Monopoly to me.

I wish I could give them 0! Do not book through this agency. They are stealing so much money. I booked my family trip back in Feb. 2020 but had to cancel due to Covid. They told us they couldn't refund us the money but they could give us credit. I have been trying this whole year but there's always a new excuse. At first they said that I needed to look for the same airlines and same non stop flight. Okay.. There was nothing then but a few months later I was able to find flights.

Now they are telling us we cannot use those flights because we bought an "exclusive" package.. Wtf is that? And they said there is no exclusive packages for the rest of the year. Now they are saying we can use any airlines we want as long as they are exclusive (how do you even look for those) and they said it's okay to use and look through other websites (at first they told us it only had to be search from the Funjet website). But apparently there no flights for that anywhere. What am I supposed to do now? They refuse to extend my credit for next year until there is "Exclusive" flights. They are stealing and this should not be allowed!

I was booked into an all inclusive resort resort in the Dominican Republic. Once I arrived I found out that the resort had been closed and boarded up for months. I had to find a place to stay on my own. The hold time with Funjet is well over two hours. It’s been months and I have not been reimbursed for my expenses, not to mention the trauma of arriving to find the resort had been closed for months. The agent told me that everything was all set for my vacation the day before we left. I was fortunate enough to have a taxi driver who stayed with us and helped us find a place to stay.

I’ve been trying to get answers from their post travel department. I sent several emails, made several phone calls to this company and no one is able to give me answer regarding my hotel credit. It’s literally been over a month now. Every time I get on the phone with a representative from existing reservations they forward me call to post travel and then I am put on hold for several hours just to have the phone disconnected. So I call again and I am put on hold several more hours again and no one ever picks up. I have yet to receive a response to several emails I sent regarding my travel credit. This company is a scam! I do not recommend this company at all.

Booked an all- inclusive to Cancun Bluebay Grand Esmeralda for 4/18/2020. Unfortunately Covid-19 changed all that. My agent cancelled my resort stay and credited it on my Funjet account. I did not give permission. I wanted the same resort for a later date. I had to make my own flight reservations. I thought the agent does this? Agent set me up with The Pink Flamingo. I spent $2,855.48 for the Bluebay Resort. I spent the same amount for the Pink Flamingo and it was horrible. The agent did not communicate about booking the trip and I would have to reach out to her. Instead of keeping my original choice of the resorts, I had to go to the Pink Flamingo. At this resort that I was stuck at for eight nights and nine days, the food was awful. There was only two options and the choices were bad. There was also a pizza/snack shop that was open for minimal hours.

As soon as we get there, my daughter and I are in our winter clothes and weren't able to check in. We were watching other families that came in after us being shown to their rooms and we were told we had to wait two hours. It took a bellhop who was confused why we weren't being checked in to get us a room. I had to share a bed with my eighteen year old daughter for four nights when we were supposed to have two standard double beds. I got the room changed, no help from the agent. No coffee in the rooms, you only get two bottles of water. I was told we could get bottled water from the restaurants but that wasn't true. The office personnel was rude. They never had red wine available. It was a hotel, not all inclusive like the agent said. We met with other Americans that also felt discriminated against. My agent did not lift a finger to be helpful and it was an issue to get picked back up to to go the airport. She had no idea who to contact.

There was nothing to do. Not even a gift shop. There was no red wine, no entertainment, It is a hotel not a resort. If it wasn't for the other people we met who were in the same boat as us, we would have died of boredom and Christmas would have not been joyful. At night we would hear music and activities going on and nothing would happen at our resort. We met another mother and daughter and they booked a five day stay. They were just as disgusted and disappointed as we were especially when we had to get food from outside the "resort". When we would go we would talk to other people outside the resort and they've had great entertainment; music; Christmas festivities; food, with Santa sliding down the pole. Her travel agent booked them at a new place Grand Series in Riviera Maya in September for the five days that they lost at the Pink Flamingo. My agent did not do this.

With my experience I don't have any interest in going back to Mexico. This was my first time going but I really wanted to experience Mexico but now I'm afraid to go back with such a bad experience. No one tried to make things right. I have unprofessional emails and text messages from the travel agent. The trip I took to the Dominican Republic through a different agent was amazing. I got my money's worth with the same amount of days and nights. With this travel agent it was a big disappointment through the same company Funjet. The first one couldn't book a trip for the second time due to medical reasons.

In February 2020 I booked a nonstop round-trip charter from MKE to Cancun. Covid shut down the world so canceled the flight. I was told I could not receive a refund because I canceled, not the airline. My daughter received her refund because she held out, if this makes sense. Fine. Decided to use the credit and booked a flight for July 2021. Now we are booking from Chicago rather than Milwaukee because no charter flights available. Inconvenient but manageable.

4 days before flight the airline had no record of us on the flight because Funjet never applied the credit. Meanwhile my daughter is scheduled on the flight with an entire 6 day trip planned for Isla Mujeras with my husband and I. Nervous, I call and literally 4 to 5 hours later, no one can seem to apply the credit. In addition, it was 4th of July weekend and was told I'd have the credit on Monday the 5th when someone "in accounting" was in. I said Monday was a holiday but told "no we are open". Monday they were closed. Really?!!

Tuesday the 6th, after on hold 2 hours with 3 days from flight day was told that they cannot apply credit nor guarantee the price I booked it at!!! I had to book a flight elsewhere to arrive close to when my daughter was in Cancun. I was told "sorry" but since I canceled it first, cannot issue a refund. Back to square one. I have a credit but it's worthless to us when they cannot seem to apply it. I want to do something from a legal angle. Can we all fight for our money and not allow these scammers to be in business? Give these customer service reps a job in an honest company? They suck because the company they work for does.

Do NOT book with this agency. They are giving false information on their website. I purchased a inclusive trip to Mexico from 06/23/2021-06/27/2021. I also purchased the traveler's insurance as stated on their websites for emergencies and things come up that prevents some people from making their trip. They stated they give refunds OR you can use the payment for another trip. They are money hungry scammers. I was unable to get my passport back due to issues beyond my control.

Contacted them weeks in advance. They advised me someone can take my place and the names be changed or I could get my refund. None of this happened! I had someone in place ready to take my spot to make it an easy transition and change of names and she would give me the payment for what I paid, then told after that they could not. Then when I explained to get my refund or even a credit to go somewhere in state those same days to use them, they told me NO. I would have to pay a $300 fee with them and would only get a $600 credit. I was also told I could not even book an in state trip during the same time so they still get business and I still get to take a trip. They did not allow either.

WHY IN THE HECK would I want a credit with them after the lies told on the website and all the nonsense I had to endure from them due to an emergency beyond my control. I will NEVER use them again. Now I'm in a panic and trying to see if any options what can I do to get my refund. I don't want their funky $600 credit when I paid almost $1200 for the trip. I am so disappointed in the lies and false advertisement. I will NEVER book or refer any customers to them. You all should be ashamed, especially when some customers take all the proper steps.

I reserved a vacation for May 26, 2021 - June 2, 2021. I reserved it back in September 2020. There was initially a party of 7. 2 of our passengers are not able to travel due to illness. I called Funjet to remove the 2 from the booking. I was told that there is a $200 cancellation fee. I figured it would be deducted from the cost of the flight tickets. It was never explained to me that I needed to pay an additional $200 to cancel the flights. I just happened to look at my account with Funjet and the reservation could not be viewed. I had to call them back.

At that time, I was informed that I needed to pay $200 by the end of the business day or I risked losing my booking. I was told that after I pay the $200 I would receive travel credit. Well, after paying fees, I attempted to get information on travel credit and was told that that package did not qualify for travel credit. It would have been better to just let the Sears on the plane go empty. It would have saved $200. Beware before doing business with this company.

Where do I even start. Not only did this company completely ruin a our honeymoon trip of over 2 years, but they also refused to return money until we spoke to a supervisor and never let us speak to one! Somehow this company has managed to make it this far without any type of internal communication or customer service skills. We contacted this company over 10 times and stayed on phone for at least an hour each time to fix the mistake they made when they cancelled our trip without making sure our room would be available for us to rebook at an earlier time.

The incompetence of the workers at this company is infuriating and downright unprofessional. I don’t recommend ever working with this company unless you want your vacation to be the most difficult experience of your life. Not only are they now not returning our money, but they have not offered one single time to compensate us somehow for our troubles, that they themselves caused. 0/5 stars if I could.
