How does it work?
The question you might be asking yourself is – how does Lastminute.com sell cheap holidays if it isn’t a tour operator like Thomas Cook etc.?
There are two methods that Lastminute.com probably uses to get holidays to sell:
With this method, Lastminute.com will buy a fixed number of spaces at a wholesale rate, meaning it can offer low prices.
Lastminute.com would agree a commission to sell spaces. This won’t be at as good a rate as the merchant model, so is less likely in the case of the deals above.
Lastminute.com has achieved a rating of over 6/10 with more than 10,000 reviews on TrustPilot:
This is pretty good! However, if you flick through, you might notice that the reviews seem to switch between large numbers of poorly rated and highly rated pretty frequently.
This might be because they invite customers to leave reviews in batches. People usually only leave reviews by themselves if they have had a less than satisfactory experience though, so it isn’t particularly concerning.
