Hello, I am not sure that you booked your tickets through our company. We are Gate 1 Travel, a U.S.based tour operator. It seems you may have booked through Gate 1 which is a European consolidator whom we have no association with.

I booked a trip in Dec 2018, I needed to change the travel dates, I called two months before my trip in Sept 2019 to reschedule due to my son graduating from Navy Bootcamp. They told me no military was not a good enough reason, that I’d have to cancel and they’d keep...

So you assumed your grad wouldn't graduate, booked a vacation during that time and when you found out they WOULD graduate, your non-refundable vacation wasn't refundable so that you could attend a graduation, you complain? Why on earth would any company give you a refund in this situation?

You deserve special treatment because this is a "military" graduation? I don't think so.

Gate1travel review: Incompetent regarding flight scheduling

Gate 1 is incompetent in flight scheduling. Orientation w tour manager for Japan will be @ 7pm but flight will arrive @ 11pm. We paid Gate 1 to do their basic job; Schedule flight time coordinates w tour orientation & not arrival in a forgien country @ night w no pick which we prepaid for the pickup.Gate 1 doesn't seem to rectify their mistake. Gate 1 keeps stalling stating they r working on it. It takes more than 2 wks to change a flight schedule. Avoid Gate 1 fr now on.

However, our system offers the options available at the time you book along with the best possible pricing. Should you still require assistance with getting this matter resolved, please don't hesitate to request a supervisor.

Hello, We are sorry if you feel there is any lapse in service. However, we did contact the hotel multiple times on your behalf.

As previously explained, they refute that anyone left the hotel due to the heat or that there were issues with the air conditioning. As such, they have charged in full per the terms of your reservation.

Gate1travel review: Love Gate 1

4.4
Details
I am actually shocked to read all these negative reviews. I just booked my 12th trip with Gate 1, have recommended to many friends who have all loved as well. A lot of these complaints seem to be about losing deposits or not getting money for cancellation - this is pretty standard in the industry I think. I don’t buy insurance with Gate 1, but I do make sure I have really good insurance with my credit card, personal travel insurance through a couple providers as well. I actually won’t travel with any other company.
