What are People Saying
While doing a detailed research on EuropeanDestinations.com, there were a lot of customers who were curious about the legitimacy of the products and services provided by the website. In this European Destinations review, we are giving customers a greater overview on what customers are saying about them.
The negative sentiments about the website are overwhelming, based on different online forums. Customers who dealt with European Destinations before expressed their dissatisfaction with the services they experienced and advised other customers not to book with this online travel agency.
Although the website may offer good travel itineraries, they reportedly provide poor customer service according to some travelers.
One customers shared their experience with the company. Booking the flights and hotels were smooth, they have a very user-friendly website that allowed customers to manage their their hotel reservation was not processed.
Also, one thing that really infuriated customers was how European Destinations allegedly took advantage of the customer’s situation. The final price on bookings constantly changed every time customers had amendments made on their itineraries. Somehow, this was reasonable; but according to customers, it’s a deliberate scheme of the company, because the customers had no choice.
European Destinations Website
Meanwhile, the website had enormous advertisements splashed on their website that featured their products and services across Europe. Sample prices displayed in the website included airline tickets (for both domestic and international flights), also included the value added tax rate. Prices also may change unannounced at certain times. They also offer tailored itineraries for individuals or traveling groups.
For booking assistance, customers may call the European Destinations customer service hotline via 1-877-267-2247 or if customers are outside the US, they may call them via 1-202-349-7506. Customer support is open 24-hours a day.

Personally, I don’t find this website convenient, for many reasons. For one, the website only provides third party service. They act as a host between the service provider, like hotels and airlines, and travelers. It is also proven that in these kind of websites, tickets are non-refundable and it’s much easier to deal directly with airlines or hotels where booking is free.
I highly recommend that travelers plan and book all their trips independently.
