Even the discounts can be a little misleading..... eg. stay 10 get 1 free at hotels.com, 16% off code at cheaptickets, 12% off using an amex at agoda, 12% off using a mastercard at expedia, etc.
Nice idea, but often the hotels I am booking are in a country and city I may not have traveled to before - and that can trigger some even more colourful accents!Good Lord People, why doncha just ring the hotel you wanna stay at? This latest trivago ad with the weird kiwi accent makes me wanna do an elvis on my telly... "me 'n' my frinz" indeed...
Last couple of times I've rung, the rate has been quite a bit above what they are selling on their own website. Hotels often provide different inventories at different price levels to different channels. Not to mention that many chain hotels have done away with in-house reservations and you get transferred to central reservations anyway.Good Lord People, why doncha just ring the hotel you wanna stay at?
Good to see the justice system in action - hopefully they are forced to pay a large damages bill/fine too.[bump]
