I've never heard of them but I ask myself why one would use a site which isn't a travel agency but simply lists deals which have been 'manually researched'? The site doesn't even guarantee that the deals are up-to-date:

http://www.holidaypirates.com/imprint

It categorically states that the deal provider should be contacted 'if there are any problems'.

As far as I can see it's just an app which skims the web and posts deals which you then follow up and book on the relevant website. I think one can more easily, and more reliably, 'manually research' one's own deals but I suppose it may save some people some time.

I'm always dubious about any site which can only be contacted by an in-site email contact form. This one gives a phone number but requires a prior email appointment for phone calls.

But that's just my opinion.....

Can't find any online reviews on this outfit at all. Wouldn't touch them.

I don't want to parrot others, but despite this site having a good hook, they don't seem to be a patch on other sites...

Sorry.
