My holiday did not go as planned. What do I do now?
The best solution is to post a review on the holiday package page. We take reviews very seriously and will do our due diligence to ensure the operator ensures better service next time around. If the operator consistently gets bad reviews for its packages then we will blacklist the operator and prevent them from listing their packages online. Further, if the lack of service on part of the agency was severely inexcusable, Tripshelf will blacklist the agency.
