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 Fare Buzz.

Fare Buzz Reviews 2016

The New York-based travel site was established way back in 1994 and had been seated on a discreet position ever since they started. We already wrote a review about Fare Buzz in September 2015. To my surprise or more like disappointment, Fare Buzz hasn’t really made any changes and improvements so far. Well I know that I am not the manager of a travel company, but yet even after knowing last year that Fare Buzz wasn’t in a good standing, they never even tried to make updates. Now, we are starting to think that Fare Buzz was really built not to compete but just to blend in with other travel agencies during the 1990s.

However, we should be aware that businesses won’t be successful by mimicking things. Businesses need innovation, initiative and talent.

How does Fare Buzz work?

As mentioned earlier, Fare Buzz hasn’t made any changes and that applies to their layout as well. Services are similar to search, compare and booking flights, hotels, vacation and car rentals. Their toll free number still appears in red at the top right of the page. There’s actually an on-going promotion for $10 Off on all flights booked on Fare Buzz and it only uses one promo code: “FLIGHT10”. Isn’t that too general? The bottom part of Fare Buzz just provides more listings of their so called top flight deals and links to their social media accounts.

The privately held travel site is being led by Mr. Arnold Walter who for some reason recently announced the update they made for their mobile site which, apparently, no customer or traveller cared about. Talking about customers, let’s check some Fare Buzz reviews 2016:

After scanning through several Fare Buzz reviews 2016 posted online, I am now convinced and I am encouraging you guys not too book your stuff with them. Why? Name it: Flyertalk forums, Complaints Board and Yelp had said it all. This travel site is not reliable and not even close to accommodating. Feel free, check these out:

Overview

This is the only buzz that I wouldn’t give time to look into. I am really disappointed that a travel company from the famous Big Apple isn’t even using this place as their advantage. Seriously? With an 8 million population by merely the city alone, not a single person is even interested with the travel site? Now, I am starting to feel fulfilled to write a Fare Buzz Review 2016, because it didn’t just help me, but also other travellers who might be considering booking with them.

Stay away from Fare Buzz. Feel free to leave a comment below.

Fare Buzz Review

There are people who probably think that the Travel Agency business is easy to manage. Those people are naive, the initial part might be easy like setting up the website, gaining connections and promotion, but after that, everything starts to amplify. Having the necessary skills and knowledge is not enough, an individual should go beyond the standard and default.

Fare Buzz is a travel agency from the big apple, let’s see if they are as popular as the city of New York.

Company Profile

Fare Buzz started in 1994 in New York City, they worked their way up in the industry with their affiliations with vendors of travel services like Airlines, Hotels and Car companies.

The current CEO is Arnold Walter who leads the agency with his experience in business. The company focuses on promoting deals to business professionals who travel frequently.

Customer Feedback

There aren’t any recent reviews for Fare Buzz for other websites which tell us that the agency is not that popular since there are a lot of bigger agencies out there. Well, they have their own “client testimonials” page on their website, and most of the reviews are positive, very positive. Reviews outside of their website would probably be more credible because there is the possibility for the testimonials on their site to be bias, just a possibility.

There were reviews on their facebook page but only a few. The reviews are positive saying that the agency provides great price rates and was able to grow productively in the industry. Customers also submitted their reviews on Tripadvisor.com recommending travelers to do business with Fare Buzz without hesitation.

Of course, negative reviews can’t be avoided, some previous customers dissuaded future customers on dealing with Fare Buzz and just went straight to the travel companies. One traveler even called fare buzz a “third party agent.”

It would be better for Fare Buzz to receive more reviews, either positive or negative ones, that way the agency starts to make some noise or in their case, start buzzing.

The Website

Fare Buzz's main interface
Fare Buzz’s main interface

Their interface is without a doubt, the same as most travel sites. Customers can book flight deals, hotel reservations, car rentals and vacations easily. Fare Buzz allows customers to look for cheap flights and cheap business class flights. Other than promoting deals right on their homepage, Fare Buzz provide promos from time to time, for example a $10 off on all flights for limited time only.

There is a list on the homepage for top ten Airlines and destinations, for international and domestic.

One more thing, they show a service and fare percent rating on their homepage to gain customer attention.

Customer Service

Their customer and sales service phone support is open from 9am to midnight EST on weekdays and 9am to 8pm EST on weekends. They also include their fax number on their contact page.

They provide email support for feedback and concerns, most of the emails sent to them are positive reviews which they post on their homepage. They also provide a FAQs page for customers to easily gain access to information.

About

Their main office is located in New York and according to their website their company is managed by an expert staff with a combined experience of over 80 years.

Here is Fare Buzz’s contact information:

In a Nutshell

If the testimonials on their website are credible, then Fare Buzz is doing a great job. However, there are also agencies who do the same thing, but receive a lot of negative reviews outside their website. Maybe reviews for Fare Buzz might start appearing one by one, so that their travelers can have a credible source of online feedback.
