FareGeek.com is an online fare finder website that promises to find their visitors the lowest possible airfare prices without compromising preferences or compromising great service.
Established in 2006, FareGeek.com is an aggregate site that collects all the published airfares and travel deals for over 500 airlines, in addition to rental car fares, cruise line fares, and special discount travel deals.
They are a completely independent booking search engine, which means they don’t have exclusive partnerships with particular airlines, cruise lines, or rental agencies. They simply provide you with a list of current fares for whatever it is you are looking for.
“Bait and hook” fare schemes are when websites advertise certain airfares or deals that are not actually available at that time, or to the general public, in order to get you to their website and then attempt to get you to purchase a more expensive product.
FareGeek.com promises to never participate in these types of schemes. Instead, they only show the fares that are available right at the time of publishing so that they can be booked immediately.
In booking your airline tickets, FareGeek.com gives you the ability to book one way tickets and multi segment flights, access to special rates for children and infants, and your choice of economy, discounted business class, or first class reservations.
You can take part in the FareGeek services completely online or, if you prefer, you can contact an agent via telephone and have them personally assist you with your travel booking needs.
FareGeek promises flights between 40% and 60% below retail prices, as well as wholesale ticket prices provided by over 60 airlines, and over 15 million different airfares to choose from in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

They are Rude and not professional. They will hold you and make you loose time... I've made a reservation which was not successful after 24hrs of exchanging information with them. Finally I got a call from them saying that the price went up...
DONT USE THEM!
I have not checked my CC but probably will have to cancel it
I booked a flight with this company back in April for £566.23, they then passed my details on to a company more local to me that also charged me £566.23 for the same flight. Both Faregeek and JTA travel have profited at my expense and there`s nothing the bank will do as they say that both companies say that they`re entitled to the money. This means that Faregeek and their partners can readily scam any customer by separating their financial responsibilities
DON`T USE THIS COMPANY
I had to visit South America for a personal tour and I got my tickets from this website. I got it at a great discount. Thank you so much.
Booked tickets to New York with Faregeek. They confirmed my seating which was paid in full. At the airport the airline informed me the seats were priority and I had no choose but to pay the extra money. Faregeek had reserved seats which were clearly not in the price I had paid. I have tried to resolve the matter for over a month now and Faregeek have now ceased to communicate or respond to me.
Avoid at all costs. Go direct to the airline.
I recently returned from a trip to New York that I booked via FareGeek.
The tickets were cheap (much cheaper than direct with the airline) and although I thought it was too good to be true, I booked anyway.
After I booked I didn't receive email confirmation of my ticket from the airline and started to read some reviews (a lot of which were negative) and became very worried. I tried to phone them up but was on hold for ever (most reviews also state this). I did email them however and received prompt responses assuring me to stay tight and that the e-tickets might take over 24 hours to arrive.
After a sleepless night, sure enough the next day I received confirmation of the tickets and could login to the airline's booking system and check the details. Although this was a massive relief I still worried that the agent (FareGeek) could cancel the booking.
The end result was that everything was fine and if I hadn't had read any reviews I wouldn't have worried and thought anything of it really. After receiving the booking confirmation, the rest of the process was like it would have been if we'd booked direct through the airline, although the tickets were cheaper! Something FareGeek explain on their FAQ (http://faregeek.com/faq.php).
I have been tracking a certain flight for two weeks now, the price was $888 everyday. One day it went up to $1062, so I called and asked. The lady insisted I buy my ticket now as prices are going up and tomorrow it will be more expensive and she told me they have a best price guarantee if the flight drops, I can the difference back. I decided to listen to her, as I should be able to trust these people.
I am still without my E Tickets and needless to say the price dropped. So I have been calling to get my tickets and the price drop refund, but no one picks up. I have called over 30 times in two days. The ridiculous hold message, says press a button and we will call you back...I try that and it doesn't even work.
I am going to call my credit card company and claim fraud against them if I dont get through in the next day.
My first experience was ok with them, but second time was good.
Faregeek, buyer beware these guys are a rip off. They charged me $300.00 to book a $167.00 airline ticket. They operate from the Skylink Airline Ticket Center,15W 36th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10018 (http://www.skylinkus.com/Index.aspx). They sent me a bad itinerary Airline confirmation number: United Airlines L8BV5S. Which was a flight out of Montreal instead of Denver. Plus I have yet to receive my eTicket Number for the flight.
