  • Monarch, for real?

    I find it incredibly surprising Monarch won this prize. In travel we should be encouraging transparent pricing, which in turn creates trust. On this 'award winning' site clients are shown a 'lead-in' per person price. In the next step considerable charges are automatically added to this price, which a client must remove to get back down to the lead-in price. To make things worse, at no stage is the per person price shown again, only the total flight costs, which effectively hides these automatically added charges. At least the low-cost carriers make clients add the extras if they want them. Try it. Sorry to be negative, but it's not a system we should be applauding. Congrats to everyone that fully deserve their accolades.
