Is FlightHub Legit
What makes a company ‘legit?’ Sure, anyone with sufficient funds and proper connections can launch their own business but not all of them provide services equally. Nowadays, more and more people are traveling the world. With the availability of services, it’s relatively easier for people to go anywhere they want or need. This increasing demand makes room for more travel companies.
In today’s article, we will be evaluating the legitimacy of FlightHub, an online travel agency specializing in providing airline tickets from around the world. Although not as popular as other online travel agencies like Expedia, CheapOair, or travelocity, this company claims to provide more options, best prices, and less headaches.
Frankly speaking, a tagline like this no longer catches my attention. However, the thing that successfully caught it was the simplicity of the website. I have a knack for minimal—but not lacking—website design. And no, I don’t mean overly-artsy, full of white space web design. When I say simple, I mean direct, easy-to-use, and fully functional. Other online travel agencies try to incorporate so many features and add-ons to their website to the point that it compromises usability.
The FlightHub website
Speaking of the FlightHub website, the first thing you will notice is that they use a layout that is very similar to other online travel agencies today. Some may find this unoriginal, but I think websites under tha same industry (which is travel, in this case,) should actually develop a standard website design to make things easier for those who like to check several OTA websites before purchasing a ticket.
Overall, FlightHub.com functions smoothly with only minor hiccups. If it’s your first time visiting their site, I suggest that you check their Terms and Conditions page as well as their Support page. This makes things easier in case you encounter issues regarding the booking or the website.
A look at FlightHub’s history and experience
FlightHub is based in Ontario, Canada and has been in business for over 20 years. Of course, they didn’t initially worked as an online travel agency. Instead, they offered offline travel services as a brick-and-mortar business.
After teaming up with web developers and customer support experts, their original group of travel professionals were able to create a simple but practical website. This led to FlightHub.com’s success as an OTA.
Today, FlightHub promises to provide fast travel booking experience, seamless customer service, and instant ticket delivery via email.
FlightHub also developed a mobile application for both Android and iOS devices. Although the app provides similar functionalities as the website, the mobile version is perfect for travelers who like to book on the go. They can also send you email newsletters and limited-time discounts if you want, all you need to do is sign up for a FlightHub account.
What customers think of FlightHub
To answer the question “is FlightHub legit?” would be impossible without looking at what their previous customers have to say. The majority of customer reviews that I read were from Tripadvisor, Feefo, and Sitejabber. These websites were teeming with FlightHub reviews and I had to wade my way through the fake reviews to help me make my own opinion on the company.
I will no longer post the exact reviews here, as I’ve already provided the review websites. If you want to see them, go ahead and visit them.
For the most part, FlightHub has some surprisingly good ratings from the customers. I say surprising because customers are less likely to post reviews if they had a good experience and more likely to jab at the company if they had a terrible one.
Customers commended FlightHub for its cheap tickets and reliable online services. I appreciate travel companies that deliver what they promise. For FlightHub to be praised for the things that they claim to offer, is really admirable.
As with all companies, there are some unsatisfied customers. The complaints ranged from technical issues from the website to unpleasant experiences during the flights itself. Let me just say that the latter is completely out of FlightHub’s control. If you did not like the cramped seats or flight delays that you experienced, you should probably complain on the airline itself. Remember, FlightHub is just a distributor of tickets.
Is FlightHub a legitimate travel agency?
To summarize everything, the answer is yes. FlightHub is just as legit as Expedia, CheapOair, Travelocity, etc. These online travel agencies may run under different owners, but they have similar services and function under similar systems. FlightHub may be not as popular but based on personal experience, I can prove that this company can offer some very affordable tickets.
A company with 20+ years of experience is hard to call a fraud. I’m not saying that business longevity is an indicator of reliability, but for them to stay in business for this long means that they may be doing something right.
