We checked the eDreams customer reviews on PissedConsumer to find out if the company honors its promises.
eDreams has an average star rating of 1.3 as of the date of writing this article, which indicates that most customers are dissatisfied. There are numerous eDreams complaints regarding poor customer service, wrong billing, and wrong booking information.
The numerous complaints and low ratings make customers wonder, “Is eDreams legit?”
For instance, in a video review on PissedConsumer, the customer complains about poor eDreams customer service. He said he had booked a Skyscanner flight before Covid, but the flights were canceled due to the pandemic. The eDreams customer service has been difficult to reach as there is no one to speak to make a refund request.
The only response he got was through a chat robot, and he was taken in circles about his refund. He kept being referred back and forth between eDreams and the airline with an offer to be refunded with a voucher. He says that eDreams should not have sold the flight in the first place if they knew that flights would not leave the airport.
3. How to Change a Flight on eDreams?
According to the "How can I change my flight" FAQs page, flight modification is only possible if your fare ticket permits. It also depends on the availability of other flights and the stipulations of the airline.
In most cases, cheaper fares do not allow you to make changes on your flight. In instances when changes are allowed, you will be required to top up the difference if the new flight is more expensive. A penalty fee may also apply.
Edreams customer reviews indicate that users often cannot change their flights, even when applicable. According to the eDreams complaints, customers are referred back and forth between the travel agency and airline when they attempt to change their flight.
If you cannot change the flight, you may want to consider canceling it. Whether you receive a refund depends on your specific circumstances and how they relate to the eDreams refund policy.
4. How to Cancel a Flight on eDreams?
According to the eDreams cancellation policy page, eDreams offers different cancellation terms. They offer free cancellation for flights marked as “Free Cancellation” if you make it on the same day of booking. Otherwise, cancellation charges will apply.
The standard eDreams cancellation policy is that depending on the specific flight booked, you may either be entitled to a full, partial, or no refund. If your flight booking is refundable, or if your booking is either standard or premium, it will be canceled free of charge. Otherwise, eDreams will charge you a $50 administration fee per ticket. Some airlines also charge a cancellation fee.
eDreams can make the cancellation request on your behalf with specific airlines such as American Airlines, Air France, and British France. To cancel your flight, get in touch with eDreams customer care via phone. On the other hand, for low-cost carriers, you will have to get in touch with the airline to request cancellation.
5. How to Get a Refund from eDreams.com?
According to the eDreams refund policy, you can get a full, partial, or no refund depending on the reason for cancellation, the ticket price, and whether your circumstances meet the fare rules and conditions. You may get refunded for both voluntary and involuntary cancellations.
Generally, most budget tickets are non-refundable. If your flight cancellation is due to disruption by the airline, you should be offered an alternative flight or a full refund. You may sometimes be offered a voucher or the ability to rebook instead of a cash refund. If the flight cancellation happens when you're ready at the airport, you may be entitled to compensation from the airline—check with the airline’s customer care desk.
If you do not turn up for your flight, it is considered a no-show, and there will be no refund.
Some of the refunds are processed by eDreams. However, refunds due to issues such as strikes, coronavirus, schedule changes, illness, or death are sent to the airline for authorization. Although EU regulations require airlines to refund within 7 days, it might take about 30 days to process your refund.
You do not need to contact the eDreams customer service team to follow up on your refund. Besides, there is no eDreams refund number that you can call. Check the eDreams app for status updates on your refund request.
6. What Payment Methods Does eDreams accept?
According to the help center, there are two main eDreams payment methods:
- Credit card and debit cards, such as Diners Club International, MasterCard, Visa;
- Online payment methods such as PayPal and Entropay.
Debit/credit card payments are authorized right away. Some debit cards and credit cards issued outside the US may be charged additional fees to cater to the currency exchange.
eDreams reviews indicate that some customers were double or wrongfully charged when paying for a booking. eDreams clarifies this issue in their FAQs. They note that card payments may temporarily appear twice on your account.
This is a normal procedure by most card issuers. The first charge is a pre-authorization, while the second is the actual payment. The duplicate amount will be returned to your account once the payment has been processed successfully. If the refund takes too long, contact your card issuer.
7. How Long Does eDreams Processing Take?
According to the “What is the status of my booking” page, eDreams issues tickets within a period of 24 hours after you have made your payment. Usually, tickets are issued immediately after your payment has been received unless the service you are booking requires confirmation with the airline on issues such as reduced mobility or bringing a pet along.
In case a transaction does not go through, eDreams will contact you via email to let you know of the failed transaction. eDreams recommends that if your booking is being processed but you haven’t received an update within 24 hours you should get in touch with eDreams customer care.
You can check the status of your booking either on the eDreams iPhone or Android app or through their website under “My Trips”. The status of your booking will either read: “Confirmed Booking”, “Booking request received”, or “Booing cancelled or payment declined”.
8. What Is a Baggage Allowance When Booking a Flight Through eDreams.com?
According to the Baggage Allowance FAQ page, the allowable number, size, and weight of bags for each passenger vary depending on the airline and route. It also depends on the amount paid for the ticket. Most budget tickets do not include any free baggage.
You can check your baggage allowance under the "Manage My Booking" area. Or, contact the eDreams customer service for further assistance.
If you plan a trip, you may consider the eDreams online travel agency for its wide range of travel services at low costs. Whether you are looking to book a flight, hotel, car rental, or buy travel insurance, you will find something that fits your budget.
However, you also need to keep in mind the cons of the company. For instance, there is no way to speak to a real person for assistance. No eDreams customer service number is available unless you are a prime member. The main way to contact eDreams is via the chatbot on the website or direct message on social media.
Furthermore, there are numerous eDreams complaints about wrongful billing and double charging, flight disruptions, difficulty changing flights, and difficulty getting refunds.
