Careful Reserving a Hotel Room Online...

Jump to last reply

Not the first time I make a reservation for a hotel room thru one of those online sites (don't want to badmouth any specific one) giving you information that later you find out "it ain't necessarily so".... Or the hotel finds no record of your reservation...

My latest was a site that allowed me to reserve a room for FOUR people at a hotel in Germany, for the price of a DOUBLE ROOM... While other sites would not accept such a reservation for that hotel, this one did. To be on the safe side, and before making the online reservation I picked up the phone, talked to the site's agent. She said if she makes the reservation and it goes thru, we're safe. She did, it went thru.

Next day I CALL THE HOTEL IN GERMANY.... They DON'T have a room for four. The reservation they see on the screen is for a double room.... We must reserve another room.

Of course, Travel...never mind the name... had to reserve another room for us and they had to pay for it. Nice. But not very reliable.

Be careful.
