Booking on AARP Expedia

Last July I book a hotel on the AARP Expedia travel site for a hotel in Chattanooga, TN.  I was charged $382.72 on my credit card at the time for the room.  When I checked out of the hotel the invoice from the hotel was $287.04.  A difference of $95.68.  Expedia claim they charged the going rate at the time.  The hotel claim they only received the $287.04.  Neither would issue any refund.  I would warn travelers that booking ahead with Expedia my not be the best option.  I have never had this happen before.  I will be more careful when booking in the future.

This is so weird to me; several years ago I posted that booked via AARP Expedia for the AARP Meetup in NOLA the hotel found no reservation. We were able to cover a stay and received refund; then as now don't appreciate AARP promoting wrong-thinking business models such as Expedia (they use money, not theirs) to forward their commercial enterprises.

I also had a very bad business practice dealing with a reservation with Europcar through AARP Expedia. I reserved a car from Europcar in February for $1077 and in June Europcar charged me over $1966. That is a 55% increase in price and very unreasonable and an unfair business practice.

It's been almost a month and I have not heard a response from Mariama A. or anyone else at AARP/Expedia.

 

Did you escalate my inquiry?
