Mobissimo’s slogan is “We Search. You Travel.” Numerous listings are showing rates that are too good to be true that they are at once considered a scam. Let us look into that matter!
The Spring of Mobissimo
Mobissimo is a travel search engine based in 631 Howard Street, Suite 520, San Francisco, California 94105. Mobissimo was founded in September 2000, however it was launched on January 1, 2004. The founder and the current CEO of Mobissimo, Beatrice Tarka, is an American who has 4 years of experience in the travel industry and is a Board Member of Travelzoo.
The Mobissimo’s Website
The website of Mobissimo is more about comparing prices and it’s quite confusing how they deliver that information. The bright orange colors might add more confusion to customers. Add to that, a bouncing eyeball is the Mobissimo’s logo but some customers see it differently (as a sperm cell, an olive fruit or an alien head). It also has an email service where the customer can sign-up to receive the latest news and offers. They could just enter their email address and they’ll get subscribed. An option to call them for low fares is shown on the top right of the page.
The features of the website provides some suggestion places to go with MobiBlog wherein customers are given the overview of where and what might be worth spending for. The blog provides information such as “Where to go in Autumn,” “Cheap domestic flights to San Francisco,” “Top 5 secret beach destinations,” “Best things to do,” and “See in Medellin.”
It seems like netizens and other prospective customers of Mobissimo are kind of uneasy with the too-good-to-be-true prices they are offering. One reviewer said “Well Well….Nice glowing remarks…not really going to take those into consideration, as I agree with the overtime comment!
Here is my comments on Mobissimo search…. ALL of the airfares that were too good to be true…were in fact! They weren’t even available when I tried booking. Now, I doubt that is Mobissimos fault, perhaps it is. But doesn’t leave a good feeling!” he sounded anxious. The other reviewer said “I actually did try to purchase them twice. Both times, after entering in all the details on their website, the area in which I was to enter my credit card number, did not appear. And when I asked verbally on the phone about the fare I found, it was nowhere to be found.” She sounded really disappointed.
In this Mobissimo review, the online travel agency is being dubbed as a scam. Most of the reviews about them show that the travel agency lacked conviction in providing their cheap fares. It seems like Mobissimo is not taking any major action to that concern yet, since the comments keep coming up until now.
