    Bharatkatyal's 5 days trip to Coonoor

    All was good except my stay in Mist n Mount at Ooty. Although the location was very beautiful but staff was unavailable right from the beginning, specifically in early morning and night nobody was there. Infact when I told them that we have a flight tomorrow and will leave hotel early morning they t
    old me to vacate room on my own as the staff will come after 730. However they provided one Bread packet and 4 butter small in the night for breakfast. But if any problem exist nobody was there to attend. Also no hot water there in early morning both the days. However we manage it. Rest stay was very good. Also Driver was not cooperative enough. I mean to say that the driver should do according to customer but he was not going on as per itenary provided for sightseeing and was adamant I think. But he was very honest. So tell them to be cooperative in future. Overall it was a nice experience

    Ganesh's 4 days trip to Coonoor

    Communication between can driver and travel agent is zero. Due to this miscommunication our itinerary is not followed which lead to miss few places without visiting. Cab driver takes his own decisions without asking us and tell us at the end saying this is my plan. River rafting

    Anmoljain's 5 days trip to Coonoor

    This was the worst and the costliest trip of my life...all because of "book it forget it" travel company and travel triangle. Opposite to their name, they kept on forgetting the things and travel triangle guys also on the same pattern. Highlights of our trip:- While booking we asked them we nee
    d sedan car with carrier, travel agent confirmed the same thing, when we were about to leave from our home to railway station we called him again and confirmed the same thing , we had asked driver details couple of times he didn't shared those details (we were told that we will get driver details one day before of travelling). He shared us driver details when we were in the train, cleverly approx 7. When we called the driver he told me that he is not having carrier in his car as this is banned in entire Tamil Nadu (not sure if it true or not). When we asked same thing to travel agent he told us yes carrier is not available in car, You didn't tell us that you will be having more luggage.( Can someone please let me know what will be the other meaning of asking car with carrier on top of that) He forced us to pay extra 6300 rupees for some old model innova car. We got threatened by travel agent like pay 6300 or else deal directly with driver (Driver was from Madurai) At rameshwaram driver asked to pay 10 k else he will stop the trip. ( We had payed only 2 installments to travel triangle remaining amout was 15k + 6300( additional cab cost, agent told driver to collect the money from us and marked payment as done on portal) Rameshwaram trip and madurai trip was good as no more places to visit. On the day from madurai to Kodaikanal driver asked us check out late from hotel as his car is having some issues, he reached hotel to pick us at 12 , on hills car was not able go above 30 35 , 2.5 hrs journey become 5 hours journey for us. One full day wasted. For covering all the places mentioned in itinerary driver was asking more money from us and my travel agent was also forcing us to pay extra. Our Driver got changed 3 times during trip. Driver who was responsible for trip was not having proper plans to visit we were on same route for 2 days. All our time money energy wasted. Travel triangle guys also didn't listen to us, they told you directly deal with agent , agent asked us to deal with driver and driver was asking money for everything even for parking which was included in our package. This was our 4th trip with travel triangle 3 were good and this one was worst. No one was listening to our problems. Learnings :- don't believe in travel triangle and there agents this is the new way of looting the money from us, as we are out of city and had payed approx 80% of the amount to them. Note:- while talking to driver he told me that we are the 5th customer who are facing same issue, agent use to write many places to visit in itinerary which is not possible for us to go in same budget. How can I forget to mention our travel triangle advisor Abhijit...he was of no help worst fellow and worst company to book any trip. Nothing

    Sadyaja's 6 days trip to Coonoor

    Trip was overall good. But the jack hilltop resort booked in Kodaikanal was pathetic. The room was smelly and it has mould growing on one wall.Very bad experience in that hotel. Other than that trip went smoothly and we enjoyed a lot. The cab driver mr. Pradeep was very helpful and polite. Visit to

    Really good service right from the booking of the trip upto the very end. Support was always available. Hotel were what we expected. The cab was right on time at the airport for our pickup. Local cab driver helped us a lot, with the best places to eat, drink tea and shopping. I would surely recomm
    end TravelTriangle to my friends. Funny enough I was recommended TravelTriangle by my friend.
