Mobile Anyone else having trouble trying to book through Skyscanner?

Ive been trying on and off all day to book flights shown on Skyscanner.

Im getting so frustrated.

The flight prices have been up and down all day and Ive gone through the booking process so many times its driving me mad.

I get right through to payment and then it says the flights are no longer available.

Twice Ive actually completed the process with Fly Sharp to then receive an email saying theyre not available. The second email just came through and on their website theyre actually showing the same flights for cheaper than I would have paid for them.

Ive never had this much trouble with Skyscanner in the past.

The flights Im trying to book are Iberia for Feb half term next year.

A lot of the "shonky" agents advertise prices that do not exist when you try to book them as they don't use a "live" booking system.

Have you looked at reviews for Fly Sharp?

Skyscanner is not a 'live' system. It is a search engine and sometimes it just shows the cheapest price that has been searched (within past few days) and found for that particular date. Its most annoying when its unavailable.
I always search the main websites too, as I often find they can 'beat' the Skyscanner price.
Also, I have had more luck on occasion with opodo for'no longer available' flights.

hope you get sorted.

If the Iberia flights are Codeshare with BA, these are available on the BA site - if you choose a Flydrive - there are some great prices booking direct with BA.

I think Skyscanner / Kayak are great for price guides and to show when flights get released. We've tried to book with them and always fail. We've tried ringing the companies that show flights and have been told that "that price is no longer available". We've also tried to add luggage and been told we have to do that direct with the airline after we have booked.

Once a flight that you like, at a price you like becomes available, ring around some reputable travel agents, or even the airline direct and see if they can get the same deal.

I got the same flights with Barrhead Travel which has a live system after reading reviews for Travel Up who had the cheapest flights on Skyscanner. Trusted agent and great service. Couldn't be bothered with Skyscanner in the end although they do give you something to aim for!
