Orbitz & Expedia ~ BEWARE!

Recommended Posts

I absolutely agree to NEVER NEVER NEVER use those sites. I"m a firm believer that you get what you pay for. The only time I get on those sites is to see which airlines are going where and for how much, then I get on the airline site to book. It's a nightmare if you have to change something on Expedia. I've booked with hotels.com before (only once because I learned my lesson). They give you the worse rooms they have.

I am so glad to have seen this thread- I had no idea! I have booked through Expedia, etc, before for various trips and now I am thinking that I just got lucky. Never again! Thanks everyone for posting your words of wisdom with lessons learned....

Wow. I can't believe that there are so many webpages out there started by people who have been ripped off... you'd think that Orbitz/Expedia would want to do something to change all that negative publicity.

 

It's much easier to book directly with the airline, I find (Westjet in Canada has amazing fare sales every month or so), so I stopped using Expedia a few years back for flights. After reading this I will stay away from them altogether now!

Uh oh... after reading all these reviews, I'm getting really paranoid. I didn't book with either Orbitz or Expedia, but . I found their site online, then called to speak to a TA. All the guests were planning to book through them too... Is this safe??

This is pretty scary... Hopefully it isn't the same with the flights as it is the hotels!!

 

We are going the week of April vacation and booked through Orbitz... this is a busy week for flights and I'm sure the flights will be over booked... if we get the boot it pretty much means the wedding is in jeopardy.....

 

Is it the same thing with flights or mostly hotel rooms??

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
