Orbitz - No Savings on Hotel
No Discount Over Hotel Normal Rates - Complaint
I was going to a Florida city and looked up prices on several motels/hotels and thought I would get a discount if I used Orbitz or Expedia. I am glad I just didn't jump into paying the 3rd party scammers. The rates at the hotels were either the same or lower than Orbitz and Expedia.
I even found a weekly stay hotel and Expedia said is was $280 per night and Expedia's rate was $40 per night - SCAM - the weekly rate was $280, not per night. Also, I could not get the name of a hotel until I booked it on Expedia. WHY? Because if I knew the name of the hotel I could get a cheaper rate by going right to the hotel.
Whatever you do, don't believe that Orbitz or Expedia is giving you a discount - check the hotel websites first, then decide if the 3rd party sites will give you a better deal.
