I quickly unsubscribed from everything once I realized how useless their "alerts" are, yet I'm STILL getting constant popups even through my popup blocker. Hate hate HATE airfarewatchdog! Make it stop!!!

AIRFAREWATCHDOG Total scammers!!! BEWARE!

I booked a flight from Cranbrook to Vancouver March 2017. I called back in less than 2 hours to book the flight for a different time, they said no problem they had not even processed the first booking yet. They said they could make the change under the same confirmation number, sure, okay. I find out later they had put through charges for both flights(even though only one flight) they ADMITTED they screwed up but made me wait a month on their refund department, then after the month they said the airline showed you as a no show, they will not refund. The managers I spoke to initially could see their mistake, but in the end basically said too bad! No refund. DO NOT BOOK with this company!!!

This website sucks plain and simple. They bait you into thinking they can find you great fares. Lies! It is a waste of time, so don't waste yours.

Has never worked for us. Not once.

When we have tried to use this site, twice, it was a nightmare of pop-ups and referrals. We have never found anything but the regular fares already available on the airline sites. When we tried to call one of the pop-up numbers, we ended up at an Indian travel agency. :o)

Never works

Airfarewatchdog website is so very frustrating to use. They have awesome emails very eye catching. But when you go to the actual website I have NEVER once found the "great prices" they sent me in my email! The pages load at snails pace. Don't waste your time. Either go to the websites yourself or call your travel agent! UGhhhh! Next step for me! ONE LESS EMAIL! ^^^ And whats with the affiliation selection above to be able to leave this review? My choices are ...I am an employee or affiliated or I received a sample? Neither am I.... double ugh..

Has not worked 1 time!

Not sure why everyone loves this site so much. I have tried utilizing their fare alerts a minimum of 100 times, and not ONE TIME have I found the fare they posted. NOT ONCE! Unsubscribing from their alerts and never looking back. What a waste.

It has never worked well for me

I signed up for email alerts for a route I like. I get e-mails claiming to have a wicked deal on my selected route and even show a price for that route. I click the link and I have never ever found not one time the so called great deal they claim they found for me. It is a waste of time site. Ease of Use Its just a tease of a site. Features What features, when you are alerted to a deal and then you can't find it. Customer Service No idea, since I've never used the service.

Airfare Watchdog fun to check out

3

I was disappointed that they didn't offer special deals on the routes that I would be taking however if you happen to be going to one of the routes that they offered you could save a few bucks. Ease of Use Good information is given on the question and answer section of their web site. You can submit your own questions and overall I felt that the web site was easy to navigate. They also offer hotel deals that might be worth checking into as well. Under Airline information they cover things like baggage fees, airline information, including fees and policies. And they even include maps of the different airlines route. Features This web site offers a travel questions and answers section. Great idea and it gives a insight to things like how do airlines decide what order people board. You can sign up for fare alerts to routes that you are interested in. Problem here for most of us still working, we cannot just take off and go when a special pricing is offered. Customer Service This is one I will keep to use again.

Useless, popup nightmare, e-mail updates overkill

The Bottom Line: I cannot possibly recommend this website to anyone who is looking for fair airfare prices. After signing-up for alerts, I started getting tons of spam, and using the website itself was frustrating at best, thanks to all of those annoying popup windows. Cluttered, too many ads, and no good airfare deals. No thanks. Ease of Use This website is way too cluttered, has entirely too many ads, and the cheapest airfare I was able to find for my location to Paris was about $1600, which is about $400 more than the normal price! Needless to say this website has been completely useless to me. Features There is nothing about this website that makes it special or even as good as some other travel websites. I hate how many pop up windows you will get for each new search, and it seems to me that this website is mostly an advertising channel for other travel websites. Customer Service After signing up for airfare alerts with Airfare watchdogs I started receiving and incredible amount of e-mails, most of which were to let me know that they still had not found a good deal for me, and recommending me to check out other "interesting" offers. In one day I received no less than 10 spam e-mails. I promptly unsubscribed myself, and after 2 weeks, I was still receiving spam from them. I ended up having to e-mail them several times, before they completely removed my e-mail from their database.

Great for a traveler on a budget

I started receiving the daily emails from Airfare Watchdog after a recommendation from a coworker and I'm truly pleased. You can setup alerts from your nearest airports to see special discounted flights straight from your airport to other destinations around the world. While I don't travel too frequently, I love that I can look here first to see if there's a destination I'm wanting to go. You can even set alerts for flights between two destinations if you're looking for a future trip. If one happens to come in at a low price. you get a notification email. I always look here first before flying anywhere. Ease of Use It's a very simple site. I can easily search and navigate. Features It's pretty bare bones, but that is what makes it great. Too many travel sites have too many features. This is just for finding cheap flights. And it's great. Customer Service I haven't reached out to customer service yet, which is a testament to the quality of this site.
