Expedia - Stay Away at all Costs

Jump to last reply

I have used Expedia now for several years. Recently, I have booked travel with them that involved "ticket aggregation" from more than one airline. If there is even a slight chance that you will need to cancel or make a change to that flight before you use the ticket you are going to essentially pay a lot more money or may loose the full amount. I understand there are change fees that the airlines charge but if you have two airlines on one ticket you must pay the re-ticket/reissue fee (usually $200) AND when you go to use the ticket by booking another trip you MUST also use both airlines. That means you cant do it online and you can only book flights where both airlines fly. One leg has to be with each airline. This is INSANE!

I know the airlines made this rule but I blame Expedia because Expedia DOES NOT TELL YOU this! It seems like somewhat important information if you are spending $500-$1000 on a ticket to know that you may loose the entire value of the ticket if you need to cancel or make a change and cant re-book to a destination that both airlines serve within one year of the original purchase date. I have had other major trouble with them regarding confirmations of hotels that actually were not confirmed and really no help when you are forced to call on the phone.

So to avoid this just stay away from Expedia altogether because it is just not worth the trouble. It is far better to pay an additional $15 or $20 to book with the airline or hotel directly.
