Reviews from our Delighted Customers
I like the fact that you have all the top Holiday Brands listed on your site. Makes it so easy to pick and choose. And the SIM Card was a pleasant surprise. You save so much money in a place like Europe, thanks to this incredible offer
Dipali Apte, Mumbai
Italy is my favourite part of Europe. I found all top brands on HolidayRewardz offering holidays to Italy. And they offered me a free SIM Card just to inquire via their platform. So, its a win win situation - both for the travel company and for the customer, isn't it ?
Aniket Ganju, Delhi
We booked a package to Italy via Thomas Cook and luckily submitted our inquiry via HolidayRewardz. So, while TC gave us an awesome holiday deal, HolidayRewardz topped it up with a free European SIM Card just to route the inquiry through them. I simply loved it !
Ankita Gurnam, Jallandhar
I have to admit, the free SIM Card was the deal clincher. I would have gone directly to Thomas Cook to book the European holiday but I simply had to pick up the free SIM Card. So I inquired via HolidayRewardz and booked via Thomas Cook. Two birds with one stone :-)
