Complaint / review / scam report
Charged for 2 TRIPS!!!

I booked a trip on-line with After going through each screen and entering our information, including my VISA number, the expedia web site went completely off my computer, (please note that MY computer was fine and that it was just the web site that went down). When I brought the website back up, the trip that we had booked was no longer available. We figured that being March Break that we had received the last 2 seats. When I still had not received any type of confirmation or E-ticket from Expedia I contacted When I told them that I was concerned at not having received confirmation of a trip that we had bought, I was asked for my "Expedia" e-mail address and after being on hold he came back and told me that no trip had been booked! I was very upset as we were supposed to be leaving on the Monday. He then asked me for any other "account" e-mail that it could possibly be under (maybe by mistake). I gave him my husbands e-mail as well. He came back again and said that there DEFINATELY was no trip booked. He asked if I had looked at the VISA to make sure that there was no charge. I confirmed with him that I had indeed checked and there was no charge at that time. When I asked how this could happen, he said that sometimes the "website" will do this (go down & not book a trip) when a trip is no longer available. After getting very upset, he asked if I would like to book another trip only through him instead of the website. I figured if Expedia's own agent is saying I haven't a trip booked, then I might as well book again. So, I booked another trip for exactly the same destination (different resort - as the original wasn't available), the exact same dates from the exact same airport and same flight times. It did however cost $200.00 more.

So after going on a lovely trip, we received our VISA bill...there it was, the original trip that I was told didn't exist and the trip we actually went on. I called Expedia immediately and the agent could not find any evidence that I had booked this trip that I was talking about. I told him that it was indeed on my VISA!!! After putting me on hold to confer with "somebody" he asked me to fax a letter with the details of what happened, a copy of my VISA, and the confirmation (E-ticket) of the trip that we actually took. I was given a Case#. I did as he asked on that same afternoon.

They never called. I had to call back again on the Visa due date.

After many agents someone finally called back She told me there was nothing more they could do for me and that I had to pay the amount. I was furious. I asked what it was that they had done for me already. I told her this was unacceptable. She said that she listened to the taped conversation between myself and the agent and that there was nothing mentioned about the original trip. I told her that it was lie and requested to speak with a manager or get their number and was refused. I also asked for a transcript of my conversation with that agent and was refused! (Very fishy) She told me she also talked with Sunquest and that they had us down as a no show. I told her that was obvious that we were a no show as we were told there was “NO TRIP BOOKED”. I was told to call Sunquest. I am STILL in limbo with this case and will NEVER BOOK ON LINE WITH THESE PEOPLE AGAIN.
