We ask our agents to reply with their best price within 24 hours, although the majority of the time they respond within 4 hours (depending on the time of day).
No. On some occasions you may already have found the best possible price. In these cases we will let you know that it is not possible to beat your quote. You can then book happy in the knowledge that you have got a great deal!
That depends on which travel company you are planning to book with. We only send your quote to agents who specialise in the type of holiday you are looking for and also have access to the best prices from the travel company you are interested in.
Much Cheaper agents compete against each other (anoymously) to beat your quote and only the best price wins. Therefore it is safe to say that you should be getting a great deal. Whether that deal is the cheapest price in the entire UK market place is almost impossible to answer. But, of course, you are under no obligation to book and it’s a free service – so what have you got to lose!
Yes they are. We remove all personal information from the quote that you send us before we forward it on to our agents. That means we remove your names, contact details and any options or quote references you may have supplied.
We are very selective about whom we work with. Travel agent partners must have a minimum of 3 years trading history if part of a consortium and 5 years if independent. They must also be members of ABTA or TTA and hold an ATOL license if applicable. We also ask for you to provide feedback on your holiday and booking experience with each travel agent. If we receive negative feedback the travel agent will be removed from the program (although we are pleased to say this has never happened before!).
In principle there is no difference (except the possibility of much cheaper prices). All of our travel agent partners are members of ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents), TTA (Travel Trust Association) and hold an ATOL license where applicable. This ensures they operate to the highest standards and that your money is protected. When you book through a Travel Agent they act as a third party and liaise with the suppliers on your behalf regarding your booking correspondence and monies due.
NO we are NOT a Travel Agent. Much Cheaper does not endorse or recommend the products or services of any particular Travel Agent. Your interactions with Travel Agents including engagement of services, payment and delivery of services, or any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such Travel Agents or any third parties. Much Cheaper recommends that you carefully read the booking conditions of the Travel Agent and any other third parties before making a reservation. Much Cheaper cannot be held responsible for any aspect of your holiday booking.
This decision is up to the individual Travel Agent. Remember that in this situation the Much Cheaper agents are here to provide the best possible price only – so they are acting as a booking agent rather than a travel agent. You should conduct your own thorough research before booking your holiday via Tourist Board websites, TripAdvisor, Travel Forums, Weather/Climate websites, etc.

Normally I book my holidays online directly with the tour operator because I thought that was the cheapest way to do it. A friend told me to use Much Cheaper so I sent them a quote for a Lapland holiday and they saved me over £200!Better than booking direct
We were about to book a last minute holiday to Barbados when we came across Much Cheaper. Having sent them a screen shot of our best quote they quickly came back to us with a better price. The agent they put us in touch with was as equally efficient. We'll be using them again!Quick and efficient
What an amazing service. Sent them my best quote and then a few hours later they emailed me back to say one of their agents had found it for more than £200 less!Glad we found you!
