Gate1travel review - Refund on optional excursion

Update by user Mar 03

See photo below for updated response.

Original review posted by user Feb 01

Did a trip to New Zealand with Gate1. Trip itself was wonderful. Signed up for optional excursions, including a nature walk. Could not do the walk because of a pulled back muscle from having to porter our own luggage at two...

Hello, Porterage is included in every lodging. Some are slower to get the luggage to the individual rooms, and we always make it known and allow any guests to carry their own if they wish to have it faster than the hotel can provide the service.

We understand there was no mention of your injury to your tour manager.

As already advised, despite our efforts on your behalf, we were unable to secure any refund from our supplier. Travel insurance would have offered some protection had you seen a doctor locally.

Yes, we had a similar problem with Gate 1 on a recent Greece trip. We were told we would have two "separate" beds at each hotel.

However, at one hotel, it was one bed frame with two mattresses. Believe me, that is not separate.

Hello, We do regret any lapse in service when you contacted us regarding the credit. Upon review of the information sent to you regarding your credit, it does state, "you are eligible to receive a $300 per person price reduction on your next escorted tour or river cruise with Gate 1 Travel." Unfortunately, as the Iceland trip was Independent, the credit was not applicable. We do apologize for any misunderstanding.

Hello,

We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused by your schedule changes. Unfortunately, such changes are made directly by the airline and are beyond Gate 1’s control as we do not own or operate the airlines. Additionally, we are sorry to hear of your negative experience with our service department.

I have traveled with gate one numerous times. It is clearly stated that transfers are NOT included if you travel early or stay later.

I do however, feel the hotel and meal quality has been declining on my last few trips.

Does anyone have an alternate company which offers similar tours? We have used ric Steves with satisfaction but all travel arrangement need to be made separately.

How about GATE 1 accepting responsibility and providing some sort of compensation? How quickly Gate 1 is to accept compliments and even quicker to pass the buck!

While we do our best to provide as much information as possible within our travel documents, we are sorry to hear if there was any misunderstanding in regards to the transfer. As for the flights, please know at the time the reservation is created our system offers all of the options available at that time along with the best possible pricing.

What was selected may have been the most cost effective option or it could have been, at the time, the most convenient flight.

Nevertheless, we do regret any inconvenience and can certainly look into other flight options for you in the future.
