Travel City Direct
One hears many rumours about Travel City Direct including delays, and supplying cheap villas. I am not concerned with the supply of cheap villas for the purpose of this write up as I don’t, and will never offer my villa by any other means than direct to the renter, we have however, on several occasions, taken advantage of the cheap flights offered by this Company, at first with trepidation, but acting upon the advice of several friends who have never experienced a problem with TCD, we went for it.
We have travelled both Upper deck and first class with them and must say that we found their service no worse than any other carrier.
We have just returned from Florida a few days ago, (August 2007), and this time travelled upper deck with TCD, there were just 30 odd passengers up there together with about the same number of Premium passengers and two hostesses who looked after us very well, to serve us. Flights both ways took off and landed on time, the food was good and complimentary drinks were part of the package. In addition, we had priority luggage and were loaded and unloaded first, altogether, a good experience.
Last year we travelled first class with them, an excellent service, complimentary drinks when first aboard, soup as a starter, only in the region of the higher twenties in the cabin with two hostesses, a choice of meals, complimentary drinks throughout the flight, lots of space on very comfortable almost fully reclining chairs, individual screens for the entertainment and of course priority boarding, off loading, checking in and luggage.
The upper deck cost £199 per person and the first class £399 per person, this in addition to their normal low prices.
I have no axe to grind regarding choice of carrier but I have seen lots of complaints written about TCD and, in my experience I have found them to be as good as any other carrier.
I have flown with Virgin who in the first instance were brilliant but I now feel have gone off, American who were very good, Delta who were also very good, BA, Reno Air, United, Continental and a host of others and have to say that pound for pound, Travel City Direct offers very good value for money, excellent service and in my experience good flights that are on time.
If asked the question would I travel with them again the answer would certainly be yes, if asked would I recommend them, the answer would again be yes. I have had nothing but a positive experience with TCD.
