Tripmaster website reviews
Has anyone ever used tripmaster to book a vacation? I am seeing vacations for a week in two European cities for around $1750 for two people including flights and hotels. Attached iternary.
It just seems way good to be true.
Never used tripmasters before, but I’d err on the side of caution. That seems way too aggressive to be true. As a point of reference, your exact flights on Google Flights show as $3,200 (for 2 people), alone. I’ve heard of good deals, but that’s almost 50% off before even looking at hotels.
On a similar note, you could book your trip into Paris and out of Rome (skip the Paris to Rome flight), and that prices at $2,600. You can then buy the Paris to Rome ticket separately for $100.
Last suggestion! Your trip is 6 months away. You have plenty of time to build up mileage/points to offset the cost that way. Reward flights to Europe can typically by had for around 25,000 miles each way in Economy.
For what it’s worth, we used Tripmasters in Costa Rica in 2013. Everything worked out the way it was billed, including the United economy flight. We upgraded a couple of the hotels, but it looked like their basic hotel choices were fine too. A great inexpensive vacation!
