have we been scammed

Posted by uktravelman on 11/6/2009 at 22:44

we got internal flights from hanoi to da nang in oct for $75 from these guys ( http://www.tnktravelvietnam.com ; http://www.tnktravel.com.vn ) and just seen on a post its $23 they asked for credit card numbers and we had to fill in 3 forms and seemed a lot of hassle

I just checked my favorite site for airfares and it said Jetstar can do that trip for $36

I'd concur with Manticore - book with Jetstar direct - no need to use a travel agent.

Is that the cost for 2 tickets or 1? If for 1, I'd say yes you got scammed, unless you booked it the same day as the flight or something. When I flew Hanoi to Da Nang in March it was U$31 on Jetstar. I checked the Jetstar website so I knew how much it should cost, then went to a travel agent to compare. It was about the same price so I booked with the agent, and I don't remember filling out more than 1 short form. I paid in cash. I would never write down my credit card info on a form like that. Did you pay with the card numbers you wrote down? Regardless, I'd be weary about what they're doing with your credit card numbers.

I think uktravelman must have got himself a ticket with Vietnam Airlines instead of JetStar . Alternatively , if the ticket is on Jetstar, it must have been the flexiplan ie with full travel option to make changes
