Trip Report do not use edreams.

Jump to last reply

We booked almost $3,000.00 CAD with edreams for round trip tickets to Thailand from Vancouver with 2 layovers on each leg of the journey. On our return flight our itinerary clearly states that we would be transferring planes in Huangzhou to Shanghai and flying for 4.15hrs in economy class. However, upon arrival in Huangzhou the airline informed us that flights to Shanghai had been cancelled almost 4 years prior and that the only way to Shanghai was by taking 2 busses through rural China that totalled more than 5 hours in transit. The airline took no responsibility for this and informed us it was the booking company's fault and that we should contact them (which of course we could not do from China with our Canadian phones). Of course, we did as we were told and got on the busses as required. On these busses we were racially attacked by the bus driver and ridiculed by the fellow bus passengers for our race and inability to speak the language. The journey was in every sense of the word, a living hell. When we finally made it back to Vancouver and placed a call to edreams explaining our situation they refused to take any responsibility and pointed fingers back at the airline. We begged that they take it up with the airline and figure out who was going to accept the responsibility for putting their customers through hell and that the very least apologize and refund us for that leg of the journey. They assured us that they would and that we would get a call back within 24hours. After waiting 48 hours we placed another call, were forced to recount our entire ordeal for a second time and were assured we would receive a call back in 3 business days. Again we did not get any call or email back and had to place a third, fourth, and fifth call back spanning over 2 weeks. Everytime they claimed they could not get ahold of the airline (whose offices are for the most part open 6-7 days a week in larger cities) and assured us they would keep trying. No one at the company seems to be exerting any effort on the matter and the company as a whole seems to not care at all. They seem to be hoping we exhaust and simply go away silently despite their grave error in our booking and complete lack of customer service following. At this point I would strongly recommend you never book through edreams. They are a hideous company with no regard for their customers or their safety and happiness on their journey and will offer you no assistance for weeks should you have any issues with your travel. Do not use edreams. The small monetary savings you receive by booking through them are not worth the disorganization and lack of empathy you will receive in return.
