I just called the bovaird location to check for ticket prices and the lady who answered the phone said she was very busy. What do you mean? I thought you are a travel agency?

berealreview

Customer service is excellent - I went to the Hurontario location and always deal with Chitra. She is extremely courteous and helps my family book tickets.

HORRIBLE travel agency with inept agents

I highly recommend that you DO NOT go to Gill International Travel. They give HORRIBLE customer service a whole new meaning. Combined with the fact that they are unable to make simple, proper bookings (ie. place families together and account for same number of baggage there and back), I am surprised that they are still in business. The stress that I and my family has had to go through on account of this agency is tremendous and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Low prices with even lower customer service

I traveled to India for the first time this winter and used Gill International. My trip was 3 weeks long and as we neared the end of our trip we ran into some issues. Gill International operates by contacting various agencies throughout India to book your flight, room, driver and tour guide. In a small city, we were assigned a drive who did not speak English, insisted we shop only at stores he received commission at (tourists end up paying for the high margins) and ruined our entire day because he didn't know where the places were on our agenda (provided by Gill International). We requested for a new driver for the next day who conveniently did not show up. As a result, we called and complained to our contact at Gill International and after many calls, complaints and arguments no one was willing to take accountability for the catastrophe. We asked for a refund/reimbursement for ruining two days on our trip but they thought it was unreasonable. In fact, our contact decided to yell at us and made my fiancée cry. As a peace offering, they GENEROUSLY paid for our $10 lunch. If you're looking for a cheap deal with no customer service or accountability, this is the place for you. Otherwise, don't bother.

It was a great experience buying a ticket from Gill International Travel for my son for Bangladesh. This is the first time my son going to travel Bangladesh on his own. After shop around at two to three Travel agencies, we visited this one. We were served by Vikram Verman. We found him very experienced and knowledgeable on the travel business. He does not mind to explain to his customers until they are satisfied. He is also very cheerful and easy man to talk. We are very satisfied from his service during ticket purchase for my son. My son felt so confident after getting a ticket from him at Gill International travel. I highly recommend this travel agency and Vikram Verman for your airline ticket purchase.

I had a hard time booking and i tried various apps and sites none of it worked. When i took the assistance of gill travels even when it was a non working day, they made sure my booking was done by their customer service. Indeed that was the best and most genuine customer service I have ever dealt with. I generally refuse filling the feed back forms but this one is really worth it. Adding on i got the best deal and even more cheaper rates that were showed to me while browsing.

Hi...had an amazing experience with the services given by the gill travels. Great staff. One of their representative “sachin” helped me a lot to find out the best option for my tickets to Delhi. Even he organized everything for me as I was travelling with my baby. I didn’t face any problem coz he set up everything. Thanks gill travels and special thanks to sachin.

Date of experience : February 15, 2020

It was great but there was a little mishap.

We book through Gill travels a lot, and we fully trust it as we can easily go in person and pay instead of doing it online. But the no-toll website went international and we obviously weren't aware there was an office in India too. Because of that and the pressure of paying online we thought it was a scam but after a call they sorted out that matter professionally and efficiently and we made the payment in person the next day with really good ticketing pricing. I would highly recommend to book through this company.

I had arrived in India from the USA in feb 2020 to visit my sister in Chennai , and unfortunately was stranded here due to the lockdown caused by the pandemic, I was constantly in touch with DIA and to my surprise she was so patient and nice with me each and every time I called ... she always responded to my calls and messages even though there were no flights operating , she always assured me that she is constantly trying to get a ticket back to the USA at the earliest and will instantly inform me as soon as the bookings open up... her kindness , professionalism and patience is beyond any good words that I can speak , and I’d like to thank DIA and everyone at gill international travel for helping me fly back home ...

It was my first time dealing with this company, we heard about them over the radio. I had a very bad experience. One of your woking staff members, Priti, told us a very good price for a ticket that we could afford. She told us she could hold that ticket for us until we make a final decision but when we could her to tell her to book it, she refused and said the tickets are sold out. How can the tickets be sold out just in 20-25 mins of asking to hold the ticket? This is really ridiculous. I doubt that she probably sold the ticket for a higher price to someone else. This is so unprofessional of her. I recommended everybody to not deal with them.

Entrepreneur Dennis Gill revolutionized travel

This article was published more than 13 years ago. Some information may no longer be current.

gill travel toronto

June 9, 1975. Dennis Gill, president of Suntours. Erik Christensen / The Globe and Mail The Globe and Mail

Canadian travellers had limited choices when Dennis Gill moved from England to Toronto in 1963. Air fares were government-regulated and expensive. Package holidays meant bus tours. And winter vacations in the Caribbean were strictly for the rich.

Mr. Gill, 77, who died on Nov. 6 of complications from heart surgery, played a pivotal role in creating today's wide-open travel market. As president of Suntours , Canada's largest tour operator, he oversaw the first successful series of air-and-hotel packages from Canada to the Caribbean, the first transatlantic charter flights that could be sold legally to the general public and the first charter flights within Canada. All three innovations came about because of rule changes in Ottawa spurred in part by Gill's extensive lobbying campaigns.

Mr. Gill built Suntours - marketed to the public as Sunflight - into a massive operation that carried 440,000 passengers a year at its peak. Then in 1981 he walked away from the presidency and a $2-million share in equity in a dispute over the company's direction. Later as president of Fiesta Holidays , he turned Costa Rica into a mass-market winter holiday spot for eco-minded Canadians.

Industry veterans remember Mr. Gill as a dynamic orator, whether flogging his tours to travel agents or promoting professional standards in the travel community. He was also seen as a mentor, guru, approachable boss and above all a gentleman.

"When he was pleased with something," says Richard Mansfield, a fellow executive at Suntours, "he would rapidly rub his hands in glee and beam at you."

Mr. Gill was a frustrated lawyer who loved drafting lengthy legal documents, says Leonard Nathan, an executive and shareholder at both Suntours and Fiesta. Not only did he submit draft regulations to airline authorities in Ottawa, he helped write the bylaws for the Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellors , a professional association, and also for what is now the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies , after it broke away from its parent group in the United States.

"When the Ontario Government decided it was politically right to both regulate the Ontario travel industry and establish an industry trust fund," says Mr. Nathan, "Dennis's hand was firmly on the helm." That fund, created in 1975, continues to protect Ontario travellers in the event of an industry bankruptcy or closure.

Colin Hunter, chairman of airline and tour giant Sunwing Travel Group , is typical of former Gill employees who went on to play leading roles at other travel companies.

"Sunflight was like a university for tour operations," says Hunter. "We had a lot of freedom. Dennis encouraged us to use our initiatives." If Mr. Gill could be faulted, says Mr. Hunter, it would be for devoting too much time and energy to industry affairs, to the possible detriment of his own business.

To his six children, Mr. Gill was the dream dad who took them to foreign lands on business trips and introduced them to unusual foods. "I am still surprised at some of the things that I ate before I was 12 years old," says Neil Gill. "Jellied eels, fried worms, chocolate ants and pickled eggs to name just a few."

Dennis Alan Gill was born in East London on Dec. 6, 1932. His father, Raymond Gill, worked in an asbestos plant and died of asbestosis in 1962. As a 13-year-old student, Mr. Gill earned spending money by organizing chartered bus tours to sporting events, pantomimes and ice shows. At 16 he left school to become an office boy with Clarksons, then a small London travel agency. He married Beryl Rawlings two years later. By the time Clarksons had expanded into the world's largest tour operator, Mr. Gill was passenger manager and an expert on cheap charter-flight holiday packages - something not allowed in Canada at that time.

Meanwhile, Toronto travel agent James Calladine decided to expand his two-office family firm, Calladine & Baldry. After interviewing Mr. Gill in London, he sent a job offer by telegram. It arrived on Christmas Day, 1962. Not wanting to interrupt his family's festive meal, Mr. Gill set it aside until later in the day. When he finally found time to discuss it with Beryl, she had already sent off a cable accepting the job.

In Canada, Mr. Gill and Mr. Nathan, who also hailed from Britain, started lobbying the Canadian Transport Commission for low-cost tour packages, called Inclusive Tour Charters. When new rules finally allowed Suntours to offer the charters to Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua and St. Lucia in 1969, the public was skeptical, Gill said in a 1989 interview. A one-week package to Barbados, including airfare from Toronto, seven nights hotel and two meals daily sold from $289, he said. At the time the lowest regular air fare was $650 and hotels had to be booked at daily rates.

In 1973, after more Ottawa lobbying by Gill, Suntours launched charter flights to Britain from cities across Canada in co-operation with Laker Airways , which was founded by Freddie (later Sir Freddie) Laker. The flights were open to anyone. Under the old rules, cheap flights were only available to members of an affinity club, or to those who lied and said they were.

Within Canada, charter flights were still illegal. But Mr. Gill found a way to skirt the rules. In 1979 Suntours launched cheap flights from Toronto to Seattle with bus service on to Vancouver and from Vancouver to Buffalo with bus service on to Toronto.

"As soon as the Canadian Transport Commission saw us doing that, they realized the game was up," says Nathan. Before long, Suntours was allowed to operate charter service across the country.

As Suntours and its sister travel companies grew into a national empire, a schism developed at the top. In 1981, a number of top executives resigned, among them Mr. Gill, Mr. Nathan and David Hardouin. The three set up a tour company called Wayfarer Holidays. It later bought Fiesta Holidays and operated under that name.

Meanwhile, as Suntours brought in new managers and new investors, Nathan asked the courts to order the winding up of Caltrav, Suntour's parent company. Mr. Gill joined in the action. In order to protect the travelling public, Ontario's consumer ministry took over the case. On April 30, 1982, a judge placed Caltrav in liquidation. Mr. Gill, who once held $2-million in equity, received nothing.

Despite the earlier rift, Mr. Calladine sent a message of praise to a memorial service after Mr. Gill's death. "By any standard anyone might apply, Dennis Gill was a great man," he wrote. "He had a huge heart and he affected positively the lives of just about everyone he met."

Mr. Gill left Fiesta Tours after it was sold to Adventure Tours in 1991. He then held a contract position with Conquest Tours for a number of years, before retiring.

Dennis Gill leaves his wife Beryl; children Susan, David, Lesley, Julian, Neil and Simon; sisters Joan and Betty; and five grandchildren.
