Priceline Are Cheaters. Liars. Deceivers.
All the other sites (booking. com, kayak. com) tell you there's no refund if you book. What does Priceline say?
"For the room type you've selected, you can cancel your reservation up until noon on Wednesday, July 3rd (local hotel time), however the hotel requires payment for the first night's stay. You will be charged for the first night's stay including taxes and fees. Any remaining amount will be refunded to you. Refunds or cancellations are not available after noon local hotel time on your day of arrival (Wednesday, July 3rd)."
In other words, it's NOT refundable.
We're adults. Just tell us. Don't loophole us with all this fine print. Tell us this bogus date to cancel per the hotel's policy. It doesn't matter. I can't even tell you how deceptive this is---"you can cancel, sure, no problem, but you will be charged." What are we, idiots??
I'M NEVER EVER USING PRICELINE AGAIN. CHEATERS. LIARS. DECEIVERS.
