Poor Handling of Agent Error 2/26/2008

My wife called Hobbit Travel and spoke to an agent for a quote on a cruise. She was quoted an amount around $3800 for 5 passengers split between 2 outside cabins. The agent offered to hold these 2 cabins at this price and my wife agreed to this. We then looked into and found flights but before we booked my wife called the agent back to make sure that the fare and cabins were being held. She was assured that they were. We then moved forward and booked flights to Miami via our credit card companies mileage program (non-transferrable, non-refundable). When my wife called the agent to book the cruise she was told there had been a mistake and that the fare would not be honored, but that for a rate of $4600 the cruise could be booked. My wife expressed that she had specifically checked twice on this and had booked airfare predicated on this verbal agreement on the cruise fare. The agent, though polite said she would not be able to assist in any way regarding this error. Jen asked to speak to a manager and was told that "Joe" the manager was busy and put through to voice mail. I then called Hobbit and after some time was connected to a manager "Andrea". I politely expressed my surprise that Hobbit would not honor the fare that was twice quoted by their agent and that we were assured was being held for us. I explained that we had booked airfare based on this verbal agreement. Andrea said that Hobbit would not be able to help with regards to the fare for the cruise. She did not offer to in any way alter the full fare of the cruise despite the clear error by Hobbit staff. I was surprised that no fare adjustment of any kind was offered. I am surprised that a local company would conduct business in this way. To me, it is short sighted and somewhat arrogant to not live up to the obligations verbally agreed to in good faith. In my area of work if I make an error I go out of my way to make this up to the affected party. This does not appear to be part of the culture at the Hobbit office my wife called and this is disappointing to us. That an error was made is upsetting but understandable. The response to this error by Hobbit is not appropriate and does not speak well of the company. more

Hobbit Travel 4/24/2006

Hobbit Travel is a travel agency based out of Minneapolis. They also have a website, www.hobbittravel.com. This travel agency seems to have terrific deals. The prices of airfare, resorts, and cruises seem so cheap! If you are a travel nut like me, you love to look at websites. You see this website and you get excited to travel. Then you call them (because you can not purchase online, another bad thing about their website), and you realize that they really do mislead you. The prices they list on the website do not include any taxes or fees that the travel agency institutes. The prices end up being MUCH higher than what is listed. Also, the prices listed are usually for like one week of off season travel, dates you would normally not travel. You are better off to check out travelocity, orbitz, or cheap tickets. more

Saved Me A Hundred Dollars On My Last Trip 8/16/2005

I was flying to NY in July, and needed a cheap fare. Did a lot of comparing and found that Hobbit had the best price by about $100. Yeah, it was on crappy Sun Country airlines-but it was also non-stop-unlike any of the other majors except Northworst. Another bonus is for the internet-phobic--with Hobbit travel you actually get to make your reservations with a live person located in the Twin Cities. more
