Priceline - Same-Day Hotel Reservations Do Not Have Same Cancellation Policy
Decided to get a hotel room this morning. Logged into Priceline at around 9:00am Saturday morning and reserved a hotel room. Found out an hour later that I didn't need to get a hotel because I could stay with family. I called Priceline to cancel and they told me they would cancel the reservation but that they were still going to charge me the full cost of the room. I said it says that Priceline would not charge a change or cancel fee. She said if I had canceled the reservation on Friday, they wouldn't have. SO, I would have had to cancel my reservation yesterday before I had made a reservation today. She said yes. So if I had made my reservation today and wanted to cancel it, I would have to find a time machine, go back in time to yesterday and cancel it...which I wouldn't be able to do because the reservation wouldn't EXIST!!
This conversation was idiotic. I ended up keeping the reservation because at least I felt that money was used for something instead of just going to Priceline....
