  • Booking a hotel room - Expedia's "No surprises!" guarantee means nothing

    Booking a hotel room - They won't stand by their guarantee of "No surprises! Here's the total price (all additional charges included):" The price quoted was $389.52 which was charged to my credit card. Three days later I am notified by the hotel that there will be additional charges of $129. When I said I was not willing to pay an additional 30% over the agreed upon price I was told either pay a cancellation fee of $259.68 or pay the additional $129. Since I was a female travelling by myself I chose to cancel because I didn't feel safe going to such a shady... More...

  • Novum Boulevart Hotel (Stuttgart - germany)

    %u201CA dwarf's room ?. Are you claustrophobic? Please do not book this hotel !%u201D I was fortunate to travel to many places, stay in different hotels (from 1 to 5 star), hostels, university dorms, tents, etc. I booked this hotel by Expedia. Several sites now include the size of the room. After waiting for the single clerk at the front desk, they got me my room 'key'. When I got into the room (3rd floor at the back), I was truly shocked about the minimalist size of the room: 2x4 meters (16 m2) being generous ! I should probably say a dwarf's room. I have NO...

  • Stayed in Expedia recommended hotel AlAmeen CROM Madinah

    First of all when we reached at reception of hotel they were very annoyed that we booked through Expedia as they charge them huge commission. I was with my family and our car dropped us and it was impossible after a long travel to look for another hotel. They only agreed to take us in on payment of extra money to share commission of Expedia. I checked with few other hotels around that area and left with no choice as most of them were fully booked. So in end I paid them around 100 Euro to sleep in the most filthiest room in the world. Possibly most dirtiest hotel in the world and I know... More...

    I never thought booking a surprised birthday holiday for my girlfriend could be such a nightmare. Having booked a 5 day trip to New York I was expecting the whole trip to be straight forward. After 2 unbooked flights, 8 hours on the phone and being asked to book my own flights by two Expedia colleagues when I thought that was the service they offered I have finally booked my holiday today. I have been appulled by the service, the attitude of their staff and the overall service and the worst thing I haven't even received a sorry! Shocking! None of my hard earnt money will... More...

  • Expedia Sucks!!!!!

    Booked stay for three day stay in New Orleans for 2 adults, 2 children for one room, 2 queen beds non-smoking. When we arrived at the hotel we were given 1 room with king bed and sleeper sofa. When I called Expedia during check-in they told me the hotel made an error. When I explained Expedia made the error, I was told there would be a charge to change the reservation. I explained once again that Expedia made the error not me or the hotel. I was transferred to another department but the gentleman quickly put me on hold and I went into automated phone hell with no assistance. Finally hung... More...

    I have had THE WORST experience dealing with Expedia and will never use them to book another flight even if it means I pay more through the airline itself. Their customer service is rude, condescending and they don't have a clue what they are talking about. I have talked to about 15 different people at this point to deal with one SIMPLE question%u2026.how much credit do I have on file and how can I redeem this. Two different supervisors gave me two completely different answers and neither were helpful. I had one agent tell me to stop talking and to listen to him while he spoke. I am... More...

  • Expedia horrible customer service

    I had a return ticket from Norway to Angola and I needed to change the return date. I had paid $500 extra for the ticket so that it was changeable for a fee. After calling Expedia for 4 days in a row being on the phone with them for 1 hour at the time to try to change the ticket theytold me "sorry" it can not be done even though it was written on the ticket that it was changeable. In the end I had to buy a new ticket costing me $ 2000. The "we are so sorry" from Expedia is really offensive since in the end it was I as a customer that took a huge loss and the cost for...

    If you ever, ever want to consider using Expedia to book a trip, please do yourself a favor and RUN, don't just walk away, or just donate the money you plan to spend to your favorite charity and stay home. You will have a much better and more relaxing experience! I used Expedia recently to book a perfect trip for my husband to celebrate a very special birthday. The entire experience was a nightmare! After booking a flight, car and accommodation package, it took several calls to receive an itinerary. On my last call, I did receive this and was assured that I did not need to worry that... More...
  • expedia is broken!!!!

    I have seen some pretty good ( bad reviews ) but I think I have a list topper. booked a package for my 21st anniversary, found the same trip thru priceline for $535.14 less, told expedia and they said " no worries " we will match. One week later 15 hours on hold, 10 disconnects, double charging my credit card, and one teir 3 supervisor ( that is as high as supervisors go ) saying you paid $535.14 more than you should have but tough shit. that pretty much sums up what this company is all about, their pockets and not ours.

  • TERRIBLE Customer Service

    After booking a reservation through their promotional email TO ME, there was in fact no promotion applied to my booking. When I called the hotel to verify, I was informed there was actually NO SAVINGS and the hotel offered the exact same rate for nights booked. My first lengthy call to customer service ended in a manager hanging up on me, my second in the rudest treatment I ever experienced. The 2nd manager would not provide me with any form of credentials in case we were disconnected again, after a 1 hr phone call still no resolution, and even made me send the original promotional email...

  • expedia has the WORST customer service EVER

    I live in Canada and always use expedia.ca for my bookings. I recently joined up for the "points" system. I was looking at that today as I have booked a lot of travel in the last while and NO points were showing up. I called expedia and spent over 2 hours with the most USELESS so called customer service agents possible. Apparently for some reason when I booked my flight it went to .ca but AT THE SAME TIME when I booked my hotels it went to the .com site.

  • Worst experience with booking honeymoon trip with Expedia

    Ticket counter issue: We were held at the Delta check in counter for over 45 minutes as the agent checking us in found issue with our reservation. According to them, the flight information did not match their record and since it was a third party reservation, she could not touch it or correct it herself. The agent spent over 45 minutes on the phone with Expedia with a long hold time as she tried to resolve our issue.

    Alitalia cancelled our flights because of strike, and I contacted Expedia to do the rerouting 15 January 2015). The agent (called Roxy) was unable to express herself in a clear unambigous English, using confusing expressions like "departure in London" (instead of "departure from London"). Explained to me that it takes more than 12 hours to fly London to Rome. Sent us to a wrong airport in London (City Airport insead of Heathrow 4). Appauling service and confusing language.

    I booked a hotel that I considered to be the best and most memorable hotel in my home country as I was coming back for a visit after being away for 30 years. The trip coincided with the visit of the Pope and the hotel was just across a park where the Pope was going to have a mass for 6 million people. This trip was one of the things in my bucket list. I booked the hotel 4 months ago and recently had to split my itinerary to transfer to another hotel in another part of the city. Expedia made a big mistake in booking the 2 hotels.

    We booked a all-inclusive trip to Barcelo Puerto Vallarta and within 5 hours of checking in received an email from Expedia with an attachment from Barcelo stating that they would have a group that would take 80% of the resort and may or not be nude or topless. If we wanted to change out stay dates that would be allowed without penalty. That's great, but we were already there. The email from the hotel was dated a week before our arrival, but we didn't receive it until we were there. It got worse from there.

I tried to call a week ago when they overcharged me $65.20 and the supervisor I spoke with argued with me for 40 mins straight refusing to listen to me telling me I was wrong. I eventually hung up on her because I was so frustrated and tired of repeating myself. So then they charge me an additional $203 that I absolutely do not owe them - now they owe me $268.20 and overdrafted my account by $100. It took me 3 hours to get an answer.

I will NEVER used Expedia again. The airlines changed the flights, Expedia GUARANTEED they would refund the money if I didn't like any of the alternative options only to REFUSE that after sending the alternative flight options that were not acceptable to our group. I have spent several hours on the phone with A Danielle Turner in their corporate customer service group WHAT A JOKE. I have trip insurance that they won't allow us to use either...NEVER NEVER NEVER WILL I EVER USE THIS CRAPPY SERVICE AGAIN.

😡 The most unprofessional customer service. I booked a flight with expedia , the airline changed my flight time, I decided to cancel this flight, which according to their policy I am entitled to a full refund. Called Expedia more than 10times in one month, they gave me the run a round, each phone call was about 45-60min long, each ended with the agent disconnecting the phone. They lied on several occasions, even after talking to 2 different so called managers I have still not received my refund. I ended up canceling my credit card with them and will never use expedia again!!!!! Stay away from this company, they are a big fraud!!!!!

I have to say, not happy with their service. We've just them before without incident, but this time we've been charged for a 3rd airline ticket, and they say there is nothing they can do about it. We booked two tickets, then a 3rd came through on our AmEx, with 3 separate ticket numbers attached. We called Expedia, and they say there nothing they can do because they don't show the ticket, ticket number, or charge. AmEx is taking care of it on their end by reversing the charge and taking it up with Expedia, but WTF Expedia, really?

I recently just had an awful experience with Expedia as well...I booked their Travel Insurance. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS!!!
My husband and I were going to travel to California next week (we live in Michigan). About 4 weeks ago we found out I am pregnant! YEA, BUT I am considered high risk and under doctor supervision for the first 10-12 weeks. Therefore, unable to travel this far!
I called Expedia and their Insurance and I was literally told 'unless you are in a hospital for pregnancy, our insurance is worth nothing to you.' WHAT??? I thought the insurance was for if an emergency happened and we were unable to travel, example being a written doctor's note forbidding travel until the end of July!
Now, I have to rebook a flight by March 2015 and reschedule the vacation. Problem is, we spent $1500 on the California flight tickets! As we obviously won't be traveling very far with my being pregnant and definitely not traveling with a one month old infant, we will lose out on 100% of our money and Expedia and US Airways gets to just keep it!

Expedia has the worst customer service ever. Charged me for a transaction that I did not make, promised to fax documents over to my bank for verification but failed to do so. The bank evidently has records of the transaction, along with the approval code from Expedia; but Expedia insisted that they did not make the transaction and have no proof about it. The service operator tends to talk halfway, claims she cannot hear you and then hang up the phone. If it happened once, I'd account it to bad reception; but it happened frequently using with different phones used on my end. HORRIBLE COMPANY. I've got a good mind to sue them

I just had a terrible costlt experience with Expedia. When booking a fight out of Houston to Minneapolis, I entered Hobby out of Houston. I am not from Houston, so when the age came back with info for flights, it said IAH Houston. I didn't know that it was Bush IAH. When I saw IAH, I thought it was Internationall Airport Hobby. The person I booked for went to Hobby. No time to make it to Bush for the flight. $343 extra to change ticket. If Expedias page for booking would have said IAH Bush, and not IAHthis mistake would not have happened. Also, I typed in Hobby, for the booking, why did it even show informatin for IAH in the first place? Persons not familiar with initials for airports, are not going to know this. Just write the full name of the airport. Will not waiste my time with Expedia, if when booking, the program they use does not eliminate other airports when you specifically type in the name of one airport. Typical Microsoft started company.

I booked a hotel in Chicago at Club Quarters at Wacker and Michigan through expedia for 2 nights arriving April 12th, 2013. The room shown on line was for 2 double beds. When we arrived at the hotel they told us they did not have any rooms available with double beds but the were going to give us a room with a queen size bed. I was upset because I paid in advance for two double beds. When we got to the room, we found it was actually one double bed. We complained through the hotel with no success, they told us they may have two twin beds available the next night. Also, not what we paid for. We call Expedia on Saturday morning to complain. They transferred us to a Manager and he hung up on us right before he was going to offer us a different hotel. We called back they put us on hold, we waited 35 minutes and decided to hang up. We figured they would never put us through. They had the reservation number and our phone number, they never called back. That is the last time I will ever book any trip through Expedia. They do not promise what they sell, isn't that fraudulent?

[This user has joined the boycott] Expedia took for money and won't give it back

I paid for and booked a hotel for a week through expedia.ca. The next day I was e-mailed from hotels.com saying that even though I paid for the week that the hotel was over booked they couldn't honor my reservation for the entire week. So, I went and stayed at my expedia reservation for 2 days. When I got back I phoned expedia looking for a refund. They said I couldn't get a refund because I didn't call them. Even though it is not my fault, the blood suckers at expedia are keeping my money.

What a joke!!! Booked a hotel through Expedia at about 53 per night for 3 nights in Georgia. The next day, our travel plans changed (Note that this is 10 days prior to actual reservation time) and I called the customer service line to cancel the final day in our reservation which happened to be a friday.

First, the customer service rep told me that a reservation for approx. 170 was going to go down to $140, a savings of only $30.00! She explained to me that this was due to Friday (the last day of our reservation which we were cancelling) was the least expensive day in our reservation. I think we can all agree that this is outright a lie. No matter the hotel, weekends are ALWAYS more expensive. When she gave me an updated total of $140, I asked her how a $53 per night reservation turned into a $70 per night reservation, she was all flustered and said she made some mistake in her calculations ???

Needless to say, if I didn't do the math myself, Expedia would have ripped me off for $40.00.

After she changed the total to the accurate amount of approx $115 (w/ taxes), she let me know that I would incur a charge for any additional changes. I still had 10 more days until my reservation, and the language in the quote stated free cancellation / changes until the 20th of November. I knew for a fact that by just calling the hotel and making the reservation, I would not have paid a single cent for the reservation, would not have had any issues calling to make changes, and wouldn't be dealing with a corporation obviously out to get my money through underhanded means. I cancelled the reservation completely, and called the hotel directly and did exactly that. Know I will have to wait and see how long it takes Expedia to refund my money. My guess is that it will be over 30 days. I will never use Expedia again.

I have used Expedia many times and always get great prices. If you need anything else from them, forget it. I booked through them and was promised a $50 Mastercard Gas card with my booking, which I never received. I reached out to them again and again to inquire about it and got the run around ("someone will get back to you", which they didn't, "you have to call the customer service number", which I did multiple times, etc.).

Expedia.com is terrible with customer service. They will side with the hotel. I was guaranteed a non-smoking room. I was given a smoking room. I complained to the hotel and they did nothing to resolve the issue nor appease the customer. I complained to Expedia and they sided with the hotel:

Dear Expedia Customer,

Thank you for contacting us about your refund request.

We checked our records and found a documentation with case ID: E-1610577 dated September 19, 2011. We checked on your original booking and noticed your reservation is not non-smoking room guaranteed. One of our supervisors contacted the hotel and was advised that they have no record of being notified of an early check-out or that the customer only stayed for 30 minutes. The hotel also mentioned that no refund would be provided.

We understand your frustration but we always have to get authorization from a manager for refunds because we are under strict negotiated contracts with the hotel. It is the hotel’s discretion to issue a refund for your unused night or nights.

We must explain that we operate under certain policies and we have no authority to circumvent or to override those policies.

To further assist you with this matter, give our customer service desk a call at the number provided below as our agents are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If this does not answer your question or solve your problem, feel free to reply to this message or call us at 1-800-EXPEDIA (1-800-397-3342) or 1-404-728-8787 (for callers outside the U.S. and Canada) and reference case ID: M-1310035.

Thank you for choosing Expedia.

DO NOT USE EXPEDIA! We booked a vacation to Breezes in the Bahamas for October 2011. We learned that the resort was damaged in Hurricane Irene. We learned this on our own and never received notice from Expedia. For FIVE days, myself and my two friends, with whom I was traveling, tried getting through to Expedia. We were left on hold for over an hour each time. Each time we asked to speak with a manager we were disconnected. We spoke to several represenatives and given different information each time. We spoke with managers, Victor and Portia, both of whom failed to do what they said they would do. Finally, I called the airline (Delta) myself and was able to have the $150 change fee removed. I contacted Breezes after being told several times that Expedia sent an email to change our travel date only to learn that Expedia NEVER sent the email. We were given reference numbers by Expedia that did not exist. As of this minute our issue still has not been resolved. We cannot reschedule or cancel unless it is done by Expedia. I am literally on hold with Expedia as I type and I have been holding for 1 hour and 47 minutes. I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH THAT EXPEDIA SHOULD NEVER BE USED!

On August 5th I went on expedia.com to book a hotel and flight from boston to cancun from Jan.12th-19th. I found a great package price for $2,035 which was cheaper then other websites. Expedia.com offers a deposit progrm, in my case I would have to put down $905.00 and then just before the date of destination put the rest down. This was all perfect until...

Expedia.com put an authorization for $1396.35, Airtranair put 2 authorizations for $319.48, which on my bank statement said "amount may change", I waited a couple of days and nothing changed so I wanted to double check that they were only going to charge the deposit of $905.00, the representative with expedia said no they are going to charge the full amount. To make a long story short I threatened to contact the attorney general, BBB, my lawyer, my bank and the authorities... they said the only thing they could do was cancel the whole package and then purchase another one if it was available. I explained I want nothing to do with expedia to just cancel everything. At this point I had already been on hold for almost 2 hours and talking to the representative for 45 min! He said he would give me a call when it was canceled and notification by email. I never recieved either so I called back that night and asked to speak with a supervisor and I was put on hold for another hour, when I finally reached someone it was not a supervisor! I spoke to rocky who said it was canceled and gave me a reference number.

I then called my bank who said it probably will not go through, well the next morning it did!! now my account is negative almost $1,000. The bank is going to give me a temporary refund for everything while they investigate. I have of course contacted the BBB and will others. I am the type of person who really pays attention to detail especially with booking these types of things..I read the small print before anything else to make sure there are no tricks or what not. I am also writing to the owner of this company to explain the situation and that maybe he should impove the customer service.

Stay away at all costs. Buyer beware. Expedia is a horable travel site.They lied about the hotel and when you call to resolve a problem you get a rep who is located in India who does not speek english.

I use Expedia and never had a problem. One time I couldn't find my itinerary on Delta but that was because my middle initial was part of my first name, so instead of Lana E it was LanaE. I need to add that I only travel during the off season so that may be the reason I never had a problem with overbooking. I wouldn't pay attention to the star ratings, descriptions, or photos that Expedia has, double check with Trip Advisor. I love bookit.com for Vegas trips they have the best rates but again I go during the off season.
