1 800 HOTELS

Has anyone used this online booking company?

Are they reliable?
Do you get what you pay for?

Thank you,
Molly23

yes for Sept probably won't book with them again
1. they make you pay up front
2. more than other sites (hindsite)
3. when I contacted he hotel by email they didn't have the reservation
took frantic phone calls and emails to verify an I have already had to pay in full for a trip i haven't taken yet.

I'll reserve my decision till I return and see hotel the hotel goes.
no matter which site you book with double check with hotel that they do indeed have a reservation in your name

Thanks for your reply.
But you will see that you have to prepay hotel reservations with most booking sites such as Expedia, and Travelocity.

molly23 - disagree. I have booked with venere.com and have never had to pay until we checked in.

Hi molly23; You could check this site, as they usually do not charge for the hotel until check-in. www.booking.com/ Dick

It is true some booking sites you have to prepay and Expedia is a notable example. But you don't on lots of them. So I would not say "most", as I rarely do and when I do it is solely to get an APEX discounted rate, not just to book. I haven't ever used a booking site that required prepayment.
