Car Rental Price Increase
Posted by Kimkent00 on 08/08/2013
I rented a car for my recent trip to New York. The company I rented from overcharged me, and Orbitz doesn't care. The car was filthy, and I didn't notice all of the garbage in the back until after I took it. I showed Orbitz all of the proof of the overcharging and the mess and they still didn't care. Don't use them. They told me that the price is just an estimate and the car company can charge anything they want. Use somebody else, I have never had this kind of trouble before.

Never trust Orbitz...multiple charges to your account
Posted by M4tesh on 08/08/2012
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- I reserved a car with Orbitz a week ago. I went to the rental car, make the necessary payment and pick up the car. After a week, when I check my account I found out that Orbitz charged me for separate insurance which I already paid at the rental car. When I called to request a reason the only justification they gave me was that they emailed me the next day that I would be charged for it and gave me a fax number and email to make a complaint. It is only $36, but never trust these people......

Car rental
Posted by Jendrocontracting74 on 04/21/2012
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -- I had booked a trip all in one to key west and as soon as I landed in Miami to get my car from dollar rental they said sorry can not do it cause of my credit I spent 3 hours dealing with them finally had enough so I went next door 2 family rental and got a car in 3 minutes. I would never do any of this again in my opinion Orbitz deserves to give me some money back as I lost so much time on my trip and had to pay 500 dollars more to get a different car. the lady at Orbitz thought it was funny which pissed me off even more lesson learned

Made good on car rental price
Posted by LeeRobbins on 02/15/2012
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- Orbitz, which I have used for many years, shows the price of renting a car listed as Total Cost once you complete the booking process. As car rental prices change, I booked a Full size car for 4-4-12 to 4-16-12 for $416 on 2-8-12 and then a few days later on 4-13-12 for $358. Being a helpful person, I promptly canceled the first. Then I decided to switch to a Premium as it was only $10 more and booked this right after on 4-13-12 for $368.63; again I helpfuly canceled the prior $358-Full booking. Today I checked again to see if prices had dropped further but discovered they were much higher, almost twice as much. Deciding to check my reservation just to be sure, I found it still said Total Cost as $368. But Orbitz has a + for more information on cost and billing; here there was an additional line I discovered showing Total as $745.70. I thought perhaps all of them had this BUT checking, this switch did NOT appear in either of the two prior rentals. In other words, Orbitz seems to have changed their price presentation. Further before you click the + it shows Total as $368.63. Total means TOTAL, and I should not be charged more than that PARTICULARLY as I canceled the prior reservations based on the inaccurate/incomplete information provided. I have also taken Screen Shots of all these items and have them available.

It took a long time (1 hour plus) and two calls, but the very professional customer service agent, Stuart, contacted the car company, Thrifty, and they nd Orbitz made good on the $368 Premium car price for 12 days from Philadelphia International airport. I've now confirmed it on the Thrifty website.

"But Orbitz has a + for more information on cost and billing; here there was an additional line I discovered showing Total as $745.70"
So what did it say the other $378 was for when you clicked the + ?

Overdrafted charges Orbitz made me lose money
Posted by Kbeen47 on 11/14/2011
LA, CALIFORNIA -- Booked a hotel on Orbitz solely a hotel I was charged an extra fee of 319$ that was unknown to me and I lost money.

75$ for overdraft fees my bank penaltied me for not having sufficiant funds in my account. I needed that money for groceries and starved for about a week cause I couldn't by food.

Still a week later Orbitz is making charges on my card. Customer service is not helpful and uncaring. Never book with Orbitz. Ever ever ever ever causes more stress it advertises to relieve.

What are they still making charges for? You need to contact your bank or credit card company and have that card cancelled, then file a dispute with your bank or credit card company regarding the unknown/unauthorized charges.

DISHONEST and UNRELIABLE
Posted by Keysorchids24 on 11/06/2011
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- Having prepaid a round trip airport to hotel car service transfer, we arrived into the Charlotte airport on schedule. The driver was nowhere to be found. We paged the driver and waited 20 minutes; no one showed up. We placed 3 separate calls to both Orbitz Customer Service and to Carmel Car Service's main office in New York. We were either put on hold or subsequently disconnected. Upon reaching the hotel we called Orbitz again. After being rerouted and put on hold several times, the Orbitz representative informed us that the driver said he was there, but we were not. They lied to my credit card company as well and I now have no recourse but to pay for services not received. Obviously, I will NEVER use Orbitz again.

Rental car robbery via Orbitz and partner

Orbitz, Economy Rental Car

We recently booked a rental car via Orbitz for a vacation to Manuel Antonio Costa Rica. We chose Econony Rental Car based on their discounted rate. What a mistake!!!!Our reservation was made via Orbitz on July 21, 2010.Our pick-up date was Monday, July 26/2010, and the car ( a Hyundai Tucson 4X4 SUV), was to be returned on July 31st. Orbitz quoted $299. According to the written contract when we left the office in Manuel Antonio on the 26th, it specifically stated the rental was for $385 for the entire week. (a rate of $49 per day/$385 for the week), as liability insurance is mandatory @ $20 per day) Hello Orbitz! During the course of the week we discovered via our credit card company that our MaterCard had been pinged for $466, $266, $385, and also a hold via Economy Car Rental was placed on our account for $1,253!!. All of which we consider to be fraudulent, and deceptive business practice. My wife is an attorney, has been for over 25 years, and fully understands service contracts in general, as do I, and to say the least......she wasn't happy at all about the absolutely ridiculous discussion that took place at the local office when we confronted the representative It was an absolute insult to our intelligence. We immediately returned the car, and paid cash for what we had used...then took a cab everywhere for the last few days. Orbitz has been contacted and refuses to make any comment what-so-ever. It was the first time we had used the travel site, and will obviously be the last time. I cannot even find who owns/operates Economy Car Rental in Costa Rica. Orbitz really needs to pull their heads out and take a good look at who they are doing business with.

Orbitz car rental services
Posted by Squeek12 on 07/20/2009
I have used Orbitz car rental services for many years and have been satisfied. However, DO NOT RENT HERTZ vehicles from Orbitz. Hertz does not honor the quotes given by Orbitz and it takes an "act of Congress" to get the charges adjusted. It is not worth any perceived "savings" to go with Hertz. They over-bill, over-charge and won't respond to Orbitz when Orbitz attempts to verify/correct the billings. Choose one of the other car rental companies.

Orbitz is the problem, not Hertz.

Car Rental Insurance
Posted by Cpcpcp on 07/19/2009
Orbitz gave me travel documents that had no information on it regarding the fact that I had purchased insurance and there was no customer service phone number to call.
The rental company said I hadn't purchased insurance. I could not confirm this due to the uninformative travel documents and lack of customer service by orbitz.
With Orbitz the customer is always wrong. Read other reviews before dealing with Orbitz.

Orbitz Customer Care Sucks. They Are Cheaters
Posted by Chaits on 04/29/2009
They kept me on hold for 2 hours and made a false promise that my flight has been cancelled. But still they charged me and I didn't even get a credit.

This happened thrice and am not going to use Orbitz again in my life.
