What people are saying
In terms of reviews coming from Mobissimo’s previous consumers, there are a lot of negative comments coming from them; issue are the company’s reliability and legitimacy, as some consumers find Mobissimo quite skeptical especially with their cheap deals and offers that seem to be too-good-to-be-true. Some of the reviews are written below.
“Here is my comments on Mobissimo search…. ALL of the airfares that were too good to be true…were in fact! They weren’t even available when I tried booking. Now, I doubt that is Mobissimos fault, perahps it is. But doesn’t leave a good feeling!”
Just like any other Online Travel Ageny website, Mobisimmo’s website will welcome you with their search panel, allowing the user to input the required locations and destinations they desire and then the website will show the user the search results, for the user to compare the prices on each and every available flight listed. This goes as well with the hotel and car rental options, just click on the said tab and you can search and compare prices, depending on your needs. Mobissimo also offers vacation deals that will show a list of cheap flights. You check their vacation package offer by clicking this link.

Upon reading all the reviews and comments coming from all the travelers who have used Mobissimo, or is just asking how Mobissimo works; I can’t tell any positive remarks about them. It seems that Mobissimo doesn’t respond very well with these reviews as seem to be not doing something about it. The reviews are outdated, and so as their website–as their MobiBlog tab still has the same post, written since september 2015. I just hope that Mobissimo will respond and act quickly with their consumer’s concerns, as this will not only lessen the doubts of travelers who are tempted by their cheap deals, but it will also boost Mobissimo’s credibility and reliability.
