“Had to cancel a ticket booked through Expedia, due to...”

Written on: 17/11/2009 by peterskands (1 review written)

Had to cancel a ticket booked through Expedia, due to illness. The ticket itself was use-it-or-loose-it, which was fine. I called the airline (Brussels Airlines) who told me that yep, I wouldn't get any money back for the ticket, but they were required by law to refund the airport tax at least. Nice. However, they couldn't handle the cancellation directly, since it was booked through Expedia, so I called Expedia who refused to pas on the airport tax refund to me, thus converting it to income… Read Full Review

BAIT and SWITCH
Cutomer Service while nice, wasn't helpfull at solving the problem.

*After I entered all the information, even my creditcard, I submited to buy the ticket
*A page comes up saying the price went up from the time I entered my address to the time i pressed submit, and that my credit card wasn't charged but the price is now 330 instead of 260

Written on: 09/11/2009 by whiteheadstephen (1 review written)

I contacted expedia in july regarding changing the date of travel of our flight tickets and check that our booking was ok. The first 5 or so times that I asked for this I was told that it was not possible (even though the airline continued to tell me that it was and ask again!)
Eventually they relented and upsold the tickets to us to allow us to change the date of travel. We paid for new tickets in late july and were told that the old ones would be refunded within 2-12 weeks. It has not been… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2009

I wouldn't use Expedia for travel anymore. I booked tours in Rome with Appian Tours and ended up on a tour where you couldn't hear anything that that guide said due to faulty equipment. I had another tour with the same company scheduled in 2 days and asked Expedia to switch me to another tour company. They sent me a copy of their policy which says that they do not do changes or refunds unless requested 2 days in advance of when you leave for the trip. In other words, if something goes wrong on… Read Full Review

Their system is broken. When you cancel a reservation at a hotel, they will charge you $200 even if you are already checked in ! Be careful when you are navigating your itinerary on Expedia not to accidentally hit the "Cancel" button. Otherwise, you are dea !… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2009

Never book through expedia. I booked a flight to California and received my confirmation. I even went into my itinerary on expedia a day before I was supposed to leave. When I arrived at the airport I found out that expedia had booked me on a nonexistent flight. When I called them, they were rude; never apologized for the inconvenience and never reimbursed me. I will NEVER book through them again… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/10/2009

I was quite frustrated with Expedia in getting even a simple record on the fee they charged me upon changing my flight schedule. They were quick to charge the penalties but when I requested a sort of receipt of it, they have never come back to me, even if I called them "four times" and an additional email request. Only when I confronted them in my fourth call, they finally gave me the information making an excuse that the request usually takes four to five days. It is more than a week and they… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/10/2009

Had to change a flight and ended up paying more than the original flight MORE for a new flight. Thought that the new price they gave me was overall - not an addition to the already paid amount. When I questioned them, they gave me their line of excuses. I made the comment that it would have been cheaper to just cancel and purchase a new ticket. He agreed; couldn't do anything though.
Being a technical support person myself. I would never screw the customer over like this. Never again will I… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2009

I booked a reservation with the White Barn Inn in Kennebunk, Maine for this upcoming weekend a few weeks ago. I received a confirmation of this reservation from Expedia yesterday. Today, 3 days before my stay, I got an email from a different hotel in Kennebunk, The Yachtsman Lodge, confirmning my reservation. Apparently there was a glich in Expedia's system and my reservation with White Barn Inn was actually submitted to a different (and far less desirable facility). What made this worse… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2009

I have NEVER encountered such bad customer service as at Expedia. I booked 4 flights from LAX to Sydney, 2 adult, 2 children. When the Itinerary arrived, there was a misspelling of one of the names. It has literally taken nearly 8 hours of phone calls to even approach a solution. Expedia wanted me to purchase a new ticket for their mistake !!! Finally the new itinerary arrived only to reflect 4 adult charges and the seating was all over the airplane, an 8 year old and a 6 year old sat alone for… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2009

I have used Expedia multiple times a year for several years to book both domestic and foreign travel, air, hotels and rental cars and I have never had a problem, ever. I have changed my arrangements both on-line and by phone, again, never a problem. Over the phone the customer service has consistantly been polite and efficient. If they did not have an answer to my question they asked someone. My only warning is that when a reservation says "no refund" it means "no refund". I have often had… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/09/2009 by jaysumalnap (3 reviews written)

As I was searching through google, I did find sites of places where users have had bad experiences with Expedia. However, there are many more users who are satisfied with Expedia, rather than unsatisfied with it. If you really think about it, only people who have had bad experiences with Expedia are likely to complain as opposed to satisfied users who are not likely to write any comment at all. In my opinion, Expedia is one of the best sites to offer deals. They are ranked in the top 500 in… Read Full Review

Expedia charged me 2X the going rate for the hotel I stayed in. I did not find out until I was handed a receipt at the end of my stay, apparently a mistake. Do not book through Expedia, the hotel owner told me to always go direct. He said their booking fees are greater than 20% but not to say anything because they send him lots of business… Read Full Review

We booked Jonathan Edwards Motel on 393 Main St Dennis Port, MA 02639
USA in Cape Cod with expedia.ca.
When we got there, the hotel was closed. Like we discovered later, hotel was closed for few months.When we tried to call expedia. ca, it took us 26 hours to get to them.
They told us that it is not their fault.
We booked the hotel with expedia.ca because we thought that they guarantee the information on their website. But we discovered we were wrong.

My advice, check that the hotel you are… Read Full Review

It's official. Expedia can kiss my dirty grits! I will neeevvvverrr book with them again! I will use the credit they have issued to my account & then I will dump them :) I booked a flight with them last year with insurance, but had to cancel. I went to use the refund this year & booked another flight. I was charged the difference, which was fine with me. Then, after a few days when I had received no email confirmation, I called back only to be told that the flight had not been booked & that I… Read Full Review

Juang's Comment

Written on: 20/09/2009

I found this review very helpful because...Just last night i tried to book a flight to Germany. After searching and tried to fill in the passenger info. then it prompted me to call the customer service for some unknown reason. I have had a bad feeling to pay them for the flight that sound too good to be true. They had the flight schedule just the way I want it, when no one else did. I am glad I came to this site and found out on HOW BAD Expedia treats the customers who trusted their service. Thank you so much for this rating, it helps me and so many people out there for this valuable information, so that we would not become a victim of this kind of "make a buck anyway we can" business. I will share this site with my friends and family, so they too will not fall into this kind of trap.
