Since it has been a year, we will be starting to write new reviews about the travel sites we once wrote about last year, just to give you a heads up of the current status or changes of a particular online travel agency. Things can change in a span of a year, that’s why we decided on re-writing some of the written travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.
In this review, we will be re-talking about BeatTheBrochure.
BeatTheBrochure Reviews 2016
BeatTheBrochure was created under Truly Travel Ltd. in 2004, making Kumar Edara the President and Managing Director who had been doing most of the calls in 2005. The Indian travel entrepreneur was their asset then. The main office of BeatTheBrochure is located at Scottish Provident House with over 200 skilled employees behind the scene. It looks like their numbers are too many to be working in a single-floor small office.
How does BeatTheBrochure work?
Everything on the homepage seems to be enlarged to fully use the entire page space. However, some information is hard to find, because the layout design is a little cluttered.
BeatTheBrochure offers categories for booking, wherein a customer can book a flight, hotel reservations, or a flight and hotel booking at the same time. Other functions include providing cheap flights, flight alterations, or cancellations; these can be processed through their customer service.
Their deals are divided by categories, which are the followng: the deal finder, holiday shortlist, and the perfect beach finder. Their target market is mostly vacationers looking for leisure.
BeatTheBrochure Reviews 2016 from Customers
There are not much BeatTheBrochure reviews 2016 shown online. But, the few ones had rated the travel site as a do-not-use-for-booking site. More specifically, some feedback are rating them between 1 or 2 out of 10 for their deceiving offers and deals. This has always been the problem of BeatTheBrochure. What’s more frustrating is they never acknowledge customers’ complaints.
Moreover, it seems that BeatTheBrochure’s deal packages are not packages at all. One customer was confident that he would be able to pay for everything and only have to worry about packing his luggage. When he arrived at the airport, he was charged extra for baggage allowance; in the package deal provided by BeattheBrochure, everything was included. Another target for complaints is their customer service representatives; despite an open phone line for concerns, customers are having a difficult time reaching BeatTheBrochure. Is the company doing this on purpose? Because, there were several cases regarding this issue.

Price beat is a popular term in the online travel industry. The meaning behind it is simple: beat the price, gain something with low rates without sacrificing the quality, or rather, have your cake and eat it too!
BeattheBrochure hasn’t made a strong impact in the online travel industry; yet, they are already experiencing major operation difficulties. Something needs to be done quickly or their reputation will keep on declining as they lose more customers.
