loveholidays.ie

Has anyone here ever used loveholidays.ie to book accomadation?

They're almost €200 cheaper compared to booking.com for a hotel I'm looking to book for a week in Spain

I've never heard of them and wondering if they're legit.

Just back from a week in italy with them.
Whole holiday per person was the same price as just flights if i booked myself.

No complaints!

Used them for a week in Portugal for the two of us - flights (Ryanair), accommodation and transfers. All good and no issues with link to Ryanair for check-in etc. Emails from them were timely and their "pack" attachment included everything we needed. Nothing bad to say about them. K

They seem to be fine. I think they are connected in some way to lowcostholidays who went into administration in 2016 though.

Used them a couple of years ago for a trip to the Canaries, no problems whatsoever. They came in less than half the price from my local travel agent. I'd use them again without any hesitation.

Completely false. They are in no way affiliated.

Loveholidays are a legit company. Have seen their HQ in Hammersmith in London and know a couple of people working there.

Any reason then why www.lowcostholidays.ie redirects to www.loveholidays.ie

Have used them twice now, was they were cheaper, but with no complaints.

However, i have see reviews & complaints of them online, i think i and many here are in the 99% that had no issues, however, if you are in the 1% with a problem, they are a disaster.
So the same as every other holiday company (hotels.com & expedia included)
