Don’t fly with Kiwi! 1/5
I booked a transatlantic flight with this company which turned into a nightmare. After missing my impossible to make connection, I immediately started looking for solutions while also staying in contact with the “customer service”. After 10 international phone calls with 9 different representatives (it turned out that they do not exchange information of customers within the company) I was forced to spend 24h at Dublin Airport. They finally booked a flight 100 miles from my final destination, and never compensated me.
They will probably post a polite reply to this review but I don’t want to waste my time.
Don’t waste yours either, and don’t trust your money on them!
As expected, they advised me to contact customer support. Don’t you think that I’ve tried that? Countless times. I wish customer support was as active and helpful supporting customers as they are when damage controlling honest reviews.
Excellent Apps! 5/5
Easy to use, I love it!
They can be better 5/5
I just took a trip to Strasbourg France from FLL USA. I got the ticket on line as it was on emergency. When I got the Airport I was told they can only check me up to London, so I had to go out, collecting my luggage & recheck in Prague & same for Strasbourg, having a short connection that was not easy. All the Airlines counters told me sorry your tickets are not joined. This was not nice of Kiwi.com to do that. For that quick $$ You did not care for your passengers. You don’t care even if they get stuck in some strange airport!!!! On line you did not even asked me to buy the meal !!! For 13 hours with no meal, where I saw many other were enjoying their meals . May be not now but some day The Kiwi.com will pay for that. My advice to you be honest & be good to your passengers.!!! And they will be back.
Thanks Haresh Bhagia +14432356007.
Kiwi save me 5/5
Kiwi found the next available flight after a United flight was delayed. I didn’t have to pay extra. Kiwi took care of everything.
Not cheap here in the states 1/5
Cheaper to purchase directly at the airline website.
Plus they attempt to charge you 10 Euros for name correction when you can directly call the participating airline for the name change request..... For FREE...
Lots of good pricing and easier to find a good rate by their easy to use search
Never ever use this travel agency 1/5
Unless you want total anxiety from weeks before you trip until the last flight home, never use these people. The WORST!! All I can say is it’s a lesson learned.
Messed up booking 1/5
My first flight to a connecting got cancelled and they failed to notify me. When talking to support after finding out 3 hrs before my flight (went to airport early), they expected me to pay for another series of flights.
They are scammers. I had some minor delays on the first series of flights (-7 hrs in airport) but had to buy a whole NEW and expensive return flight because of the cancellation they didn’t notify me of or fix the booking. Their guarantee is a joke I’d recommend going directly through the different airlines.
Consistent error messages 2/5
I downloaded this app and attempted to such for a car and hotel room. It kept changing my dates from the dates I actually picked. It keep telling me it could not connect to the server. It would not load the maps. Prices and user friendly were not as friendly s Expedia, booking.com, or even Travelocity. All within 10-15 minutes I received about 6-7 error messages. Uninstalled!
If you’re not using Kiwi... you’ll wish you were 5/5
Little known App for Americans, but if you’re looking for an easy to use, sensible travel App. I found it when I was traveling in NZ, but I’ve used it for travel everywhere.. it’s perfect!
Horrible service with zero post booking accountability 2/5
I never write reviews but I felt compelled to write this to warn others. I booked through Kiwi last summer for a trip to Greece and thought it would save me a few dollars. Kiwi didn’t send me a booking confirmation and when I called they said they couldn’t find it in their system and therefore it was nonexistent. They gave me the assurance it was ok to rebook it. TWO weeks after the fact they sent me an email and said they found the original booking and couldn’t find it when I called due to an email typo! When I asked for a refund for the double booking they showed zero accountability and said there isn’t much they can refund since it was a nonrefundable flight! So now I’m stuck with an extra +$750 flight! That’s just not right. Also be warned, connections are super inconvenient esp in the UK since you have to go through security clearance and recheck bags AGAIN with tight layovers. It is not worth a few dollars you think you’re saving upfront for the added stress and a claims department that won’t help once they’ve taken your credit card info. Stay away!!
Good price, trustworthy, and excellent service 5/5
First time using this app to buy tickets. At the beginning, I was a little skeptical about the low prices they offered, but I’m so glad that I found this travel agency. The cost to fly was low and affordable; they took care of everything for me in regards to checking me in and keeping me posted with flight updates; a great app to find the best traveling deals.
I highly recommend this app to anybody who is traveling local or international.
I loved this app until they changed there platform now it’s like every other platform like Expedia and etc. it was better when they had the weekend trips and etc. I felt a lot better about buying random tickets now it’s just a needle in a needle stack of flight apps
Muy buena app
The best app for airfare booking 5/5
Excelent app to visualize day changing fares. The best
I booked my flight with kiwi and they were great!!!!! I had a delayed flight and missed my connection. The kiwi guarantee covered my missed flight and booked me the next one going out the next day. They even booked me a hotel for free. They are very accommodating and when anything changed about my flight they called me right away!! I would book with them again!
Ease of app very good 5/5

So far this has been easy no issues
My trip is in a few weeks and I just booked a return trip my daughter had a few issues which has mad me nervous but so far so good
Scam! Never use for international travel 1/5
tl;dr: we were not allowed to board our international flight with two legs booked through kiwi because the booking required a visa for the layover country
When you typically book an international flight with a layover, you do not require a visa for the layover country and your luggage is checked in till your final destination. With kiwi.com the reason you save money is because they will book separate itineraries for all your legs without clarifying the same, and you need to clear immigration, customs, and check out and check in your luggage at the intermediary destination. What this means is that if you do not have a visa for the intermediary country where you layover, you’re screwed and you cannot board your original flight. This is exactly what happened to us, and AT NO POINT IN THE BOOKING PROCESS WERE WE NOTIFIED OF THIS REQUIREMENT. Customer support was completely unhelpful. Would never use again. What a waste of money!
Very good 5/5
Everytime l can find very affordable ticket.

Terrible flight experience, left stranded. 1/5
I do not have anything positive to say about our experience with kiwi.
1. All flights are separate tickets. When doing transfers we had to go through customs/immigration collect our baggage and then go through security again.
2. Fees are higher through kiwi vs booking your self (luggage, seat selection, etc.)
3. We had 2 passengers on the trip, multiple legs of the trip were not on the same reservation/confirmation number.
4. Most of our connections required changing airports.
5. Left stranded in London on the way to US. Our connecting flight was at a different airport which was a 1 hour taxi ride (1.5 hour bus), with additional expense. We were allowed 3 1/2 hours for the connection (immigration, baggage pick up, airport change). Flight was delayed, we did everything possible to expedite - skipped lines, took a taxi, etc. When we arrived the check in had closed and we could not board the flight. We called Kiwi who instructed us to not rebook directly through the airline as they would be sending new booking options to choose from to reach our finial destination as part of the Kiwi Guarantee. The options never came, we waited for hours at the airport, multiple international roaming calls to find out they would not be assisting in any way or refunding any money for the flights we did not take. When we were notified of this we had then lost the credit the airline was offering us to rebook.
We had to spend ~$2,000 additional to return home. Very disappointed, stay away.
The guarantee is a scam, they do not honor.
Guarantee means nothing, book direct 1/5
Their app has poor options to get support and if you need help at the airport you’re screwed. You have to submit a ticket and wait for them to make a decision before adjusting plans for delayed and canceled flights. Avoid this service, no added benefit, only downside. Just work with the airline.
Seems like a scam 1/5
By frank in the game
Be careful the site and app take all your details and never confirm your flight. Either say the flight is booked or freezes has no contact phone number which is super weird.
You should not have to register to access your contact information. If you don’t have to register to book a flight. Why hide your contact info at all? It should be easy and forthcoming.
I feel terrible that I waited so long to do this review. ... sorry about that. These guys were amazing! I took a flight a year ago (!). The airline, though everything was in order, wouldn’t let me board with my service dog. And don’t argue with me - I found out from their mouths (customer service) that everything was in order. So I missed my flight. Dealing with the airline was no help. I was going to make a new reservation myself. But prices had skyrocketed since my original reservation. So I thought, why not call Kiwi? Maybe they can help. They not only got me a better set of (and shorter layovers) flights; but also dealt with the original airline! Completely above and beyond. And at the same, original price, with zero extra fees. It’s why I always try to use them. Love you guys ❤️!
Kiwi is Fraud 1/5
By Asjal Rana
I request you all never ever use such scam and fraud application to buy air ticket. First they do not give any support and second they do not guide you what to do. They do just charge your credit card or debit card. Without validation. Airport taxes are needed to pay again over Airport even they include all the taxes. Most important baggage issue. They don't pay for baggage even they have charged. Second they don't take any RESPONSIBILITY.
It's a fraud and should be closed. I will complain to cyber crime about them.

WRONG FLIGHT INFO, NO FLIGHT CHANGE UPDATES, BAD ALTERNATIVES 1/5
I booked multiple flights on kiwi.com, one of which was a connecting flight. When my first flight was rescheduled several hours later by the underlying airline, I received no notification from kiwi. After notifying them, the solution they offered was to reschedule both my flights to the following day.
Even after notifying them, kiwi still shows my flight as on its original schedule, and even worse they CONTINUE TO SELL THE CONNECTING FLIGHT UNDER THE ORIGINAL SCHEDULE. These flights cannot possibly work as the rescheduled first flight lands an hour after the second flight departs. DO NOT BOOK WITH KIWI.
24/7 support is where? 1/5
It says that you guys have 12 language 24/7 support when i can’t even find from where i can access it. I hate websites/apps that make it hard for a user to contact support team especially when it comes to flights.
Makes everything simple ! 5/5
Helps me stay organized and not get confused with my flights ! Also keeps me updated with things.
Kiwi is like the Kiwi Fruit! 5/5
Its sooooooo Fruity Awesome❗️♥️
Hello! I really love kiwi.com it is a great app for finding flights, but the one main problem i face all the time is that, 1) i can never find the type of aircraft ill be flying on when i check the information. 2) whenever i go on to select passengers, there never is a choice for children its either infants or adults, which changes the final price and causes confusion. 3) i can also never try to find how to finish a alert, there isnt any option i can find to stop a particular alert. What i want added is an option for travellers like children and teenagers, i also want added some aircraft info like aircraft type and i want an option to finish alerts, other than that this app is really good! Thank you.
Very Easy 5/5
Took 5 mins to book a flight
NOT COMPATIBLE WITH APPLE WALLET? 2/5
This application claims to be compatible with Apple Wallet but it has not shown me any sign or buttons as to how to download boarding passes and itineraries to my Apple Wallet! I called customer service and they have no department that deals with how to download passes to the wallet app and have told me they absolutely no clue about what I am talking about when I asked for help to my passes downloaded into my wallet! What kind of company is this? There is not even a single screenshot of any person who has ever used it showing proof that it is compatible and downloadable to the Apple Wallet!
Prices do not exist 1/5
Prices do not exist. When you go ahead and try to finish your booking, always appear an error message, or a pop up message saying the prices have incresded. Always! It is impossible to trust on it! Do not download this app. It is an illusion and waste of time!
Kiwi is the best 5/5
I love this app you it all the time.
Best travel search engine experience 5/5

Worst travel app!!! 1/5
By Mr. Vadell
This people are the worst problem resolving when they change the schedule of a flight. They don’t even take into consideration what plans you might have that could affect the rest of your trip. They expect you to pay more for the change of flight. Bad accommodations if you have to stay at the hotel. They don’t even care about it. No supervisor speak to you for resolving the situation even if you asked for it. They will give you the less. Very bad service!!!
love it very good very cheap price 5/5
i love it i Recommend everybody to use it
User Friendly 5/5
Very easy to use!
Excellent service.. customer care is v v v helpful.. I recommend everyone to use this app.
Poor flights. Will make you stranded in a random country. 1/5
Do NOT use this service. They booked me a flight out of an airport I cannot get to at 6am. They refuse to help me or rebook the flight so I have to buy ANOTHER flight home on a different service.
TERRIBLE TERRIBLE SERVICE. Do not use this.
Doesn’t Work 1/5
By Nicci E
App is garbage and when it finally loads says it “appears to be offline”. My internet is fine and works great with other apps. Use Momondo it’s more reliable.
Best and cheapest 5/5
The app/website is the best i will find you the cheapest tickets i got mines for a total of 2,990$ from LAX-HAM for 5 people best of the best but we need an email or an phine number so that we can contact them
Buenas compras 5/5
Estoy muy agradecido con mis vuelos siempre a buen precio.
Couldn’t find the advertised features 1/5
I specifically downloaded this app the receive recommendations on destinations in different months. The ad showed a map that would show good and bad destinations in a given period. This feature is not available on the actual app...
Great app - Beautiful UI 5/5
By Andreas Franchino
They could def. improve their user experience in the knotty gritty, I have used the app to fly to and from Europe multiple times, the only problem I have with it is that their alerts aren’t very helpful, I had to cancel a flight, but when I did, there was no indication that it was cancelled so without knowing it was cancelled I went to the airport and waited only to find out the flight had indeed been canceled.
Kiwi.com never notified me it was cancelled, thankfully they reimbursed me credit. I say this not to guide you away from using the app but to let kiwi know that they should really focus on their customer experience from a logistics standpoint.
Is a the best app 5/5
I loved app
