    Hello

    I was offered a really good deal on a ticket and i was thinking that seems cheap. Can anyone tell me is this company/website is legit and not bogus?

    Thanks

    Why would an airline let them sell 'too cheap' tickets?

    How could you doubt the integrity of a company that can write like this?

    They are not a member of ABTA and are based in India.

    Technically they have registered a company in England, but only 5 weeks ago. It has a share capital of £1, the sole shareholder is based in India and it has neither an ATOL licence nor is it a member of any travel trade association. I think this should be sufficient for you to make an informed judgement on whether to deal with them or not

    No one in their right mind would book with that company. One quick glance at their website should be setting alarm bells off all over the place.

    At least the OP had enough sense to check before booking.
