Travelocity Complaint - Travel Protection is a joke, prices are bait and switch and customer service.... Don't even
I booked my trip for a car, hotel and plane and received a great price. I got to book it, the price jumps up $200 on the spot. Against my better judgment I selected the travel protection plan that clearly states that you can get back the full amount of your trip if you need to cancel. I go to put in my CC anyway and they process my AMEX within 7 minutes and the message I get is sorry, we couldn't book your car. So I call (after a 10 minute hold) and ask what happened and they say we can't give you a car at that price and I say couldn't you give me other options rather than immediately charging my card? So after a few minutes of frustration with "customer care" I ask to speak to a manager. I finally get someone after yet another 10 min of holding and he gets the car I originally wanted, but the trip was still going to be $200 more. I get a confirmation email and they charged me the $100 I paid for the travel protection! I call to discuss this and their system now can't find my reservation at all! I call again and the person says that the reservation is there and goes down the list of everything I bought, but that I need to call their insurance company about the travel protection. At this point I decide to call the CEO of Travelocity. I emailed Hugh Jones (CEO) Hugh. Jones@Travelocity.com too and got a precanned email from someone stating that I'd have to take it to their insurance company because I tried to cancel the whole thing and feel I deserve my money back plus the travel protection because I no longer have any faith in their service and told that I'd be charged $467 and that I'd have to do it through their insurance company. What a joke! NEVER EVER book with this unethical company. Shame on them.
