They advertised a first class ticket from Sacramento to Houston for $865.00 but to buy that ticket I had to call.  When we set up everything and found one that worked the price changed to $1,065.  I had spent so much time I went ahead and purchased it. I purchased the ticket November 28, 2016 for the flight in August 2017

I then recieved and email from United that that flight was no longer available.  I spent an hour with them trying to find flights that worked.  They basically had nothing.  No direct flights and none that were first class and the times changed drastically.  I asked if I could get a refund and was told yes it would be no problem.  Then I received an email stating that it was a United credit.  I didn't want that as their flights don't seem to work for me.  I was told since I had purchased it from a traval agency they would have to rufund my money.

I called Travel Help Desk in April 2017 to notify them of the issue and was told they would contact the airline and I would receive my refund shortly.  I called back a week later and was told a few more days.  I called back May 8, and was told 5 more days.  I started using their chat feature on May 15 so I would have a paper trail and was told a few more days that the airling had to open the ticket.  I verified with the airline that the ticket had been open and all they had to do was request the refund.  I then had another chat May 22, 2017 and was told the same thing, a few more days.

It is now June 10, 2017 and I still have not received my refund and was told yet again that it would be 2 or 3 days.

I received an email from United that the travel agency had been issued a refund.  When I contactated TravelHelpDesk I was told it would take 1 to 2 payment cycles.  I questioned that they were able to take the money within minutes yet it takes 30 to 60 days to refund something they have in had.  I was just left in chat with no further communication.  This company is the worst!  RUN don't walk away from them.  Check the reiviews on them.  Had I done so I would have never purchased from them.
