Travelocity Complaint - TRAVELOCITY/HOLIDAY INN SUITED Outrageous Cancellation Fees
I booked a reservation through Travelocity at the Holiday Inn Express Suites, Amarillo, Texas about two months in advance. Yesterday I found out that I would not be able to use this reservation after all. I called Travelocity and spoke with someone who sounded as if they were in a foreign country and spoke with a very, very heavy accent. When I tried to cancel, they told me that all three nights that had been prepaid would be forfeited ($317). When I asked to speak to a supervisor this person would not let me do so. They referred me instead to Holiday Inn, who they say keeps the forfeited deposit. I then called Holiday Inn's central reservation line, who referred me to the Holiday Inn Manager in Amarillo and/or Travelocity. I then spoke with the local Holiday Inn Manager, who referred me to Travelocity. None would refund the deposit.
While I understand a reasonable cancellation fee to cover administrative expenses, charging $317 cancellation fee is anything but reasonable. I urge all readers to not book any hotel stays through Travelocity or at the Holiday Inn.
