    Based on my personal experience I would suggest that you avoid Flight
    Centre. I recently (January 2011) booked a vacation with Kevin T. at the
    Yonge & Eglinton location, at 2354 Yonge St. in Toronto.
    There was no benefit in doing so.
    I ended up booking exactly what I had found myself online, since he
    claimed there was nothing else comparable available.
    He offered me insurance that was more than 3 times the cost of what I
    eventually purchased from the Adventure Travel Company, the exact same
    coverage from RBC.
    He was humorous in that he flipped and flopped in every opinion he
    pretended to have, so long as it encouraged you to book, the old 'used
    car salesman' approach. The sky is blue, then purple or green – if you
    know what I mean.

    There were serious errors in the paper work for the booking. When I
    attempted to e-mail and telephone this representative at the location I
    received an automated response notifying me he was “out of the office”.
    This surprised me greatly, since he advised me that I would be able to
    reach him during the following days, as my departure was less than a
    week away.
    I called again when the office was next open, (not open on Sundays) and a
    woman Susan C. the “Team Leader” at this location was very short,curt
    (honestly I felt she was rude) on the phone. She accused me of signing
    off on incorrect information. And said that she would contact the
    appropriate person to correct it. I distinctly got the feeling that
    since I was not a new booking I was being ignored.

    In the end I got the urgent help I required from the tour
    operator/airline when I contacted them directly . Their customer service
    rep advised me that although Susan said she would contact them – she
    HAD NOT. I would have not been able to board my flight if this
    information hadn't been corrected.

    After reading many reviews online after my experience, I realize what
    happened to me is standard practice at Flight Centre. I thought booking
    through an agency would give me peace of mind and a contact person to
    help me – this was not the case
    SAVE YOURSELF THE STRESS AND EXTRA MONEY.
