    eDreams are a pure scam website - the amount of complaints you can find online is insane. I booked with them, they took my money and never booked my flights - thankfully I got my money back through PayPal.
    I'm glad a big company is making a fuss, as I know many people have reported them to various authorities, yet they're still trading and taking people's money for nothing.

    E Dreams in based in Barcelona, they provide no financial protection and according to the CAA in the UK, they are powerless to intervene. It seems they have the perfect model, sell outside your home territory, so that no one complains to local enforcers, and ignore the issues when people complain. Always make sure you know who you are dealing with, it really is a case of "buyer beware"+

    Why doesn't Easyjet simply block IP addresses known to be used by eDreams?

    Besides, I don't know that easyJet necessarily wants to block eDreams from selling their flights, they just want them to be upfront about prices since easyJet has to be.

    My Dad has fallen for this website - however if he logs in to the Easyjet website his booking is there (albeit through a completely random email address). Can he be secure in the knowledge that his flights are booked?

    Yes. Just that any changes to flight times etc, he isnt going to know about.
    So he will need to keep logging in every so often to check.

    I'm guessing that if he can logon, he has permissions to change the details?

    I don't use EJ myself so not sure
    I have long known that it is part of God's plan for me to spend a little time with each of the most stupid people on earth.

    Thank both. I'll get him to try changing the details and if he can't, make sure to keep checking x
