Have you heard of Kuoni? Doesn’t sound weird to you? Well the company name is really unfamiliar. However, did you know Kuoni has been a travel organization for a century and nine years? Let us see what 100 years of experience has to offer.
What is “Kuoni”
As it shows on their page, Kuoni was founded in 1906. This travel organization is one of the largest travel companies in Switzerland and worldwide.
I was part curious about the word “Kuoni”. So I made a few searches for Kuoni reviews. Some say it’s just a made up word however the majority says it’s a German boy name which means “Brave”.
Getting to facts, Kuoni was derived from the last name of the founder, Mr. Alfred Kuoni, a Swiss who was initially an overseas worker and went back to Switzerland in 1905. In that year he suggested adding a travel agency to the freight business of his three brothers. The new CEO of Kuoni is a 50 year old Swiss; Mr. Peter Meier.

After browsing Trustpilot.com I read a lot of negative Kuoni reviews and this review caught my attention. The reviewer said “Approached Kuoni for help with honeymoon in Venice. Foolishly ended up paying a deposit for four nights later this year – before realising I could book the same hotel (with a better quality room) and the same flight for less money than that quoted by Kuoni (this includes taking into account the deposit which we couldn’t get back). Rookie error – but I wouldn’t be using Kuoni again.” he named this review with “Avoid” an gave Kuoni a 1 out of 5 rating.

To sum it up
Soaring thru various Kuoni reviews, I noticed that the travel organization has really created a nice reputation for their customers. Kuoni is focused on assisting customers travelling needs and not searching for flights and hotels deals. Kuoni is being left out by other online travel agencies in so many ways and services.
