I have booked the reservation with this business through Expedia and they told me I needed to speak with the property manager. Then I reached out to the property manager and he refused to give me a refund. He offered to provide me with credit for the faculty and I didn't want that, I just wanted my money back. I have spoken with *** also about the matter and they had tried to reach out to the property manager too. There has been no further response to *** from the property manager. I felt reaching out to the Revdex.com would be my only option.

Dear Revdex.com,It has been my pleasure to assist with Case #***. Our findings and resolution to the case are listed below:Findings:I can confirm that the customer booked a reservation at *** - Luxury Condos on February 25, 2020, via Expedia's website for check-in on May 13th, 2020 and check out on May 15th, 2020. At the time of booking, the customer selected a pay later reservation and agreed to the following cancellation policy:The room type and rate selected are non-refundable. The non-refundable payment is collected by the Hotel within 72 hours after booking. Should you change or cancel this reservation for any reason; the payment will not be refunded.From March 10 thru July 20, 2020 the customer was in contact with customer care regarding a refund for their reservation. Conclusion/Resolution:We would like to offer our apologies for any frustration the customer may have experienced trying to reach a resolution.Upon receiving the customer's complaint we reviewed their booking and found we have processed the cancellation on our end. As the booking is a pay later booking we would not be able to refund the booking as the hotel was the one who charged the guest.As the hotel is the billing merchant, we recommend the customer reach out to the property directly to reconcile the billing. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.Kind regards,The Expedia Team

***ALL ATTACHMENTS PERTAINING TO CASE REDACTED BY Revdex.com

I booked travel with Expedia which had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 for 1 April. Received confirmation that I could redeem a credit a month later. The email stated that I would receive another email that would give the expiration rate. This was never received. I am now ready to redeem my credit and have followed the guidelines in Expedia's website. You can't do this self service, you have to call them. But the information on the website is false. They give a number to call to be able to redeem the credit, but those agents are not able and have no access to do the redemption so they put you through a supervisor. I called the number and was on hold for 1 hour to no avail. I called back the number and they put me on hold for a supervisor that can complete the transaction for 1.5 hours. The call was cut off. I called for the 3rd time and been on hold for over 3 hours. In total today I have been on hold for nearly 6 hours trying to redeem my credit and book my flight. They should be truthful on the site and say that after you call the advertised number, those agents cannot process the credit, they will put you through a supervisor, which doesn't answer the phone. When I spoke to the 3rd agent, she stated that to get a hold of a supervisor takes around 2 hours on hold. So this is 2nd day I have been on hold a total of 12 hours to redeem the credit and book a flight.

Revdex.com:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.

Everything has been handled and my credited flight has been confirmed.

Sincerely

I booked a trip that included flight, hotel and the flight was cancelled due to COVID19. Because it was cancelled, I requested a refund which they refuse to give. The hotel will not refund even though I dont have a flight to take me there. Each refund request (hotel and flight) is a separate request even when it was pur***d as a bundle. Regardless both airline and hotel refuse to give a refund.

Dear Revdex.com,

Thank you for taking the time to contact Expedia regarding an issue from our customer. We appreciate the Revdex.com (“Revdex.com”) allowing us time to address the comments and concerns brought to our attention.

Expedia is responding to the consumer complaint from Ms. *** (Revdex.com case number ***) regarding her package reservation. We understand the customer is requesting a refund for the entire reservation.

Our records indicate the on January 16, 2020 - The customer, or an authorized user of the Expedia account, self-booked a package for two passengers on Expedia's website, under itinerary ***: A Round trip with *** from Los Angeles, CA, to Cancun, Quintana Roo, departing on July 20, 2020 and returning July 25, 2020, A non-refundable Room, Junior Suite, Ocean View, at *** Cancun - All Inclusive, for July 20-July 25, 2020, *** Shuttle: Cancun Airport and Travel Protection Vacation Waiver. Upon review, on May 27, 2020 – Email was sent to customer in regards to an airline-initiated schedule change that occurred on the returning flight, which resulted in the original flight no longer being available. The customer called in regards to the email that was sent and was provided with alternative flight options, however insisted on the original flights. Upon further review, on June 12, 2020 - The customer called Expedia and request a refund for flight since Delta changed it. Our agent called support team for help as the outbound flight was cancelled by Delta and per airline customer can apply for refund with waiver code *** REFUNDED PER CORONAVIRUS INTL 17MAR20 *** The customer also requested to cancel hotel reservation as well as shuttle service and an Email was sent to the hotel to request a waiver in order to refund.. On June 17, 2020 the hotel replied advising they would be open July 15,2020 and that the customer booked a no-refundable reservation. An email was sent to the customer advising them of the response from the hotel. Customer email back asking what does the email mean and that no refund will be issued?. On June 18, 2020 Ms. was directed to call customer service to cancel the hotel using the waiver, due to chargeback received , the customer was already refunded for the hotel using the waiver and refunded from the chargeback for $1472.38 and the failed refund for $32.00 for the shuttle.Please be advised based on the airline’s policy and the flight’s fare rules, we are unable to honor the customer’s request for a refund with ***. Please note that Expedia serves as a third-party intermediary with travel providers such as hotels, car rental agencies and airlines and is subject to the rules and restrictions of those providers. We hope you understand we must follow the terms and conditions as dictated by the vendors. Additionally, at the time of booking Ms. accepted Expedia’s Terms of Use, which expressly state: The carriers, hotels and other suppliers providing travel or other services on this Website are independent contractors and not agents or employees of the Expedia Companies or the Expedia Affiliates. The Expedia Companies and the Expedia Affiliates are not liable for the acts, errors, omissions, representations, warranties, breaches or negligence of any such suppliers or for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting there from.

I contacted Ms. July 30, 2020 to provide assistance and she advised that the refund was already approved with the Chargeback and will no longer need a refund from Expedia.

We thank you for allowing us the opportunity to address the issues brought to our attention. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us. Sincerely, Monica ***Corporate Correspondence Team

Revdex.com:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.

My credit card company issued a charge back after Expedia continued to refuse a refund for cancelled flights and eventual hotel cancellation by the resort. They failed to provide satisfactory evidence to the *** dispute department showing that it was me (as they claimed) who cancelled the trip. They cancelled, not me.

Even in their response to the Revdex.com they stated that they couldnt honor a refund from *** even though the flight was cancelled.

But yes, in the end my credit card company issued me a refund (charge back), and I am okay with that as long as the refund was made.

Expedia failed to provide proper customer service and a refund for a service they didnt deliver.

Sincerely

I have been using Expedia.com since April 2019 for hotels and flights to and fro college, and they were great - website, confirmation, and service. Ever since a January 2020 booking for May, things went terribly. Expedia customer service reps helped me get a replacement flight after expedia would change my flights to other destinations. Therefore I no longer had the opportunity to use the airlines of my son's choice, at the price I originally agreed, and somehow the airline was blamed. It was probably because of covid, but this occurred 3 times, even if I booked ahead of time, and I had to pay double the price in the end. So, shoppers be aware. If you can avoid this mess, you were warned.

Expedia.com did not answer phones prior to my trip. The flights were changed and then there was a travel ban that caused us not fly to Germany on March 19, 2020. We made numerous attempts to contact the company with no luck. The customer service line hung up on customers. The 2 times we spoke to a customer service rep they were rude and deceitful and offered no remedy. United Airlines said we must go through Expedia to get a credit. My Itinerary #

disheartened the customer felt their concerns, were not resolved adequately by
our company prior to seeking further actions from you.Expedia is
responding to the consumer complaint from *** (Revdex.com case
number ***) regarding a
refund. We understand
from Ms.’s complaint that she was not able
to get through Expedia phone lines to cancel her booking prior to her trip
start date. Our records indicate that on March 2, 2020, Ms. or an authorized user of the account booked a
package to Munich, Germany for travel 19-28 March 2020. The package reservation
included a roundtrip flight departing on March 19, 2020 from Washington, DC to Munich, Germany via *** Airlines, and
returning March 28, 2020. The package booking also included a 8-night stay at *** Hotel for check in on March 20, 2020, checking out March 28, 2020. Total cost
of the package was $1,771.24.

At the time of completing her booking on our website, Ms. agreed

received in a timely fashion.Upon receipt of this complaint, we
investigated the issues which were brought to our attention. We can confirm
that on June 9, 2020, Ms. called in to
request a refund or an airline credit for the unused flights. Expedia agent
documented that the call got disconnected before it was transferred to the Corporate
Department. Agent’s attempt to call customer back was unsuccessful; hence, agent
left a voicemail.

After further review we can confirm that on June
25, 2020, an acknowledgment email was sent to the customer stating that customer
will be contacted once investigation on customer’s issues has been completed.

In addition, on July 31, 2020, United Airlines confirmed customer’s
tickets are currently open and can be used as airline credit towards a future flight booking. And on August 3,2020,
the hotel also confirmed that the hotel reservation is not eligible for a
refund. Please note
that Expedia serves as a third-party intermediary with travel providers such as
hotels, car rental agencies, and airlines, and is subject to the rules and
restrictions of those providers. United Airlines was the operating carrier on
this itinerary. We hope Ms. understand
that we must adhere to the rules and regulations of the air carrier, including
their cancellation and refund policies. Moreover, we are also bound by the property's
terms and conditions so we cannot process a refund for any booking where the
terms and conditions indicated no refunds would be permitted.Based on the
above, Expedia was able to advocate in behalf of Ms. to have
an airline credit with *** Airlines. Expedia however is unable to honor Ms.’s refund request for the non-refundable hotel
reservation. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to address the issues that

I purchased airline travel tickets in November for a trip I was taking my sons on in April of 2020. I purchased flight insurance via Expedia at the time of ticket purchase. We cancelled our flights do to COVID and the stay at home orders, two of us being health care workers told not to travel and I being over age 60. We have been dealing with Expedia, AIG and *** to attempt resolution and we were told by AIG that we were not eligible for a refund as *** gave us travel vouchers, which we have never requested. We have been adamant in 2.5 months and 20+ hours of calls/fax/emails that we only want a REFUND. There are so many issues related to Expedia's failure to comply that we are following two Facebook pages created solely for this purpose. And it appears that Expedia is highly DISCRIMINATORY in their refunds as we see many receiving resolution but still others fighting for their money. The Expedia/AIG insurance says "quarantine" is a covered item and if a national stay at home order doesn't qualify for quarantine then I'm not sure what does. We have had zero success with Expedia, AIG, *** and American Express related to our REFUND as each says the other is responsible.

Expedia is responding to the consumer complaint from *** (Revdex.com case number ***) regarding a refund.

We understand from Mr.’ complaint that his flights were cancelled, and he is requesting a full refund and not a credit using the travel protection. Our records indicate that on November 6,2019, Mr. or an authorized user of the account purchased seven non-refundable, combined one-way fares online via Expedia.com, departing on April 20, 2020, from Kansas City, MO, travelling to Eugene, OR (for itinerary ***-combined one way fares) and from St. Louis, MO, travelling to Eugene, OR (for itinerary ***-roundtrip), via *** Airlines and returning on April 26, 2020, via *** Airlines (for itinerary ***).

We can confirm that on March 30, 2020, customer reached out to one of our chat agents regarding itinerary ***, requesting a refund. The agent documented to have advised customer that booking is only eligible for a flight credit and not a refund. The agent then provided the insurance company’s contact information. On June 4, 2020, Expedia agent reached out to both *** and *** Airlines to confirm the refund eligibility of customer’s tickets. Both airlines confirmed tickets are only eligible for a future travel credit. The same information were passed on to the customer via email.

After further review we can confirm that on March 25, 2020, Mr. cancelled his reservations via Expedia’s self-service portal. On July 2, 2020, another email was sent to the customer reiterating the airlines’ flexibility policies concerning both bookings. Expedia agent further advised customer to that they can reach out to insurance provided, Travel Guard, directly should they decide to file a claim for the unused flights. On the same email, customer was also advised that Expedia cannot make any guarantees in behalf of Travel Guard, as they are a third party insurance company.

In addition, Mr. was advised of the Terms and Conditions of his Cancellation Plan, which was also available to him at booking and within his booking confirmation email. The Plan is administered by Aon, and any claims can be made directly with them at the contact details provided to Mr. in his confirmation email ([email protected]), or by phone at 1-855-266-4973 or 1-516-342-4503).

We hope Mr. understand that we must adhere to the rules and regulations of the air carrier, including their cancellation and refund policies.

My family booked a vacation package using Expedia.com. We booked a hotel, rental car and airfare. We were to travel to Daytona Beach, FL on May 25th but due to COVID19 we had to cancel. We knew when we cancelled there was a chance we would not receive a full refund and we understood that but on May 4th I received an email stating that we would be refund $1052.70 for our rental car. I assumed that was not the amount we paid for the rental car but I assumed since they billed it all together they must have just lumped it together with the flights for the refund as well and I couldn't call to ask because we were instructed not to call. Several weeks later we finally received our refund but it was for $261.85 so I called Expedia to inquire. I provided a copy of the email I received and spoke to 3 different customer service reps who explained the email was sent by mistake but that I should still get the refund because it was not our fault but after 5 hours on the phone with Expedia the final say was in the hands of the supervisor on-duty who said we should have known it was a mistake because we didn't pay $1052.70 for the rental car. They offered us a partial refund of $504.60 but I feel we are due the full $1052.70 because they said we would get the full amount. How can you email someone saying they are due a refund and then just choose not to refund them?

I have been trying to get my refund from Expedia for more than 10 weeks now.

Expedia was supposed to have processed the refund for a flight to Europe in the beginning of April, I even received an email that a refund was to be processed on March 28.

The flight was cancelled by the airline, *** Airline, due to covid. The airline has even given them authorization to refund me, I spoke to them directly, and even Expedia confirms that this is the case. The airline itself has the clear policy, written on their website, and confirmed by the customer service representative when I called, that it is the Travel Agency, in this case Expedia, who has to process the refund.

I have called Expedia upwards of 10 times, and they continue giving me the run-around, constantly telling me a variation of "everything would be fine if I just wait a couple more days". It has now been more than 10 weeks since that refund was supposedly processed.

The current run-around they tell me is that the airline is blocking! them! to process the refund, even though they themselves tell me that they have a note by the airline customer service representative authorizing them to process the refund. Now they tell me that the airline instituted the "blocking policy" after they authorized it, but the refund was still somehow not processed. They said they have contacted the airline, but now has been 3 weeks since even that supposed contact, and supposedly they are still waiting. Three weeks ago, when I called them, the Expedia customer service supervisor told me that they would receive the info from the airline in about 2-3 days. I called a week later and was told that because of covid, it is taking longer, but definitely less than 2 weeks. It has now been three weeks, and I am again told that I should "wait just a bit more". When I asked why on all the previous calls I was told that "everything is fine, the refund is being processed, it just takes longer, wait 8 weeks", they said they "thought" it was fine, but the airline was apparently "blocking them". When I ask well why wasn't I told that the airline was "blocking them", they said they didn't know.

I am afraid that they are just giving me the run around, because they can. They know they owe me the refund, and yet they are not giving it.

Please help me! I am a cancer patient, and this is a lot of money for me, as is for everyone actually. I was planning to travel to see my family, which is why I had booked that flight, but I can't travel now, because as I cancer patient and immune-compromised I can't travel due to covid. So I can't use any vouchers, or anything like that, I need the money.

Thank you.

Complaint: ***

I am rejecting this response because:

At this stage, I will only believe the refund is in process when I actually receive the refund. In this reply, Expedia say they have contacted the airline on July 29th. !!!! TODAY!!!! They told me several times before that they have contacted the airline and that the refund is in process, and that I just have to wait. The first date on which I was told that was March 28 (I have their email, in which it says the refund is being approved and is being processed). I was told that again on April 29th and May 28th--that Expedia had contacted the airline, and I just have to wait. Now I am told that the Expedia contacted the airline on July 29th, TODAY. This in itself is 4 months after March 28th when I was told everything is fine and I just have to wait, three months after April 29th when I was again told that everything is fine and I just have to wait, and two months after May 28th, when the whole thing was repeated. So now they are telling me again to wait 3 months. I have the feeling that in three months they will tell me that they have JUST contacted the airline and the refund is being processed, and that I should wait again. Is there any recourse at all? I have been waiting, and I obviously have no other choice but to wait, but at some point isn't there a violation of my legal rights and process? They all agree I am owed this refund, and yet I am not getting it.

Thank you to the Revdex.com for facilitating this discourse, at least now we have the timeline officially laid out for all to see.

Expedia will not return inquiries. I am trying to cancel a hotel reservation on Wed. June 24 in Missoula Montana.
Expedia itinerary #***.Tried to cancel in April. got the run around. Payment amount was $74.53 on a VISA card. This is unfair business practice and not ethical. I cannot use the reservation due to the fact that my event was canceled due to the COVID 19.

Complaint Reference Number: ***Dear Revdex.com, It has been my pleasure to assist with Case #***. Our findings and resolution to the case are listed below. Findings:I can confirm that this reservation was created on February 15, 2020 via *** Missoula for arrival on June 24 and departure on June 25, 2020. At the time of booking, the customer selected a hotel collect booking and agreed to the following cancellation policy: This booking is non-refundable. The deposit payment is equal to the total cost of the booking and collected by the property within 72 hours of booking. If you change or cancel for any reason, you will not receive any refund.There are no notes showing any contact between the guest and our customer care team. Conclusion/Resolution:We would like to offer our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused the customer.Upon receiving the customer's request, we reached out to the property to see if they would be willing to offer a refund for the reservation. Unfortunately, we were not able to obtain approval for a refund from the property. As the hotel has declined to offer a penalty waiver we can’t proceed with a refund for this booking.If the customer has additional questions about the billing for the reservation, we recommend they reach out to the property directly since the hotel is the billing merchant. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and allowing us a chance for resolution.Kind regards, The Expedia TeamTell us why here...

I purchased some airline tickets through Expedia on May 31, before purchasing, I called regarding insurance and they said my ticket had insurance. Hawaii just issued a 14-day stay for quarantine to all travelers. Due to that, I decided to call and get a refund. My mother has heart conditions and cant travel for that long. Expedia refuses to give a refund and give me the run- around transferring me to different agents. I have called 7 times. They said they no longer offer insurance. They informed me my tickets did HAVE insurance and now they refuse to give me a refund even in the middle of a pandemic.

We appreciate the Revdex.com (“Revdex.com”) allowing us time to address the comments and concerns brought to our attention.Expedia is responding to the consumer complaint from Mrs. *** (Revdex.com case number ***) regarding a vacation package.Our records show on February 9, 2020, Mrs. or an authorized Expedia account user self-booked a package reservation on Expedia’s website under itinerary ***. Travel was with *** Airlines, traveling from Newark, NJ to Orlando, FL departing on April 24, 2020 and returning on April 30, 2020. The package included a car rental and hotel stay at *** Resort & Spa Universal Studios Area, for a check in on April 24, 2020 and a check out on April 30, 2020, for a total of $1,726.48. We understand Mrs. is requesting that Expedia refund the entire package based on a dispute filed with the customers financial institution. On April 8, 2020, Mrs. used our website services to cancel/ initiate a refund against both the car rental and hotel accommodation. However, since Mrs. chose to file a dispute both refunds were cancelled. Therefore, based on the dispute, Mrs. request for a refund must take course through the channel in which she initiated her request.On May 26, 2020, Mrs. contacted Expedia to request a refund due to travel restrictions, she mentioned that she was unable to cancel the reservation online. In addition, Mrs. stated she filed a dispute with her financial institution that was denied/closed. We then advised Mrs. that she must communicate with the financial institution for their final determination in regards to her refund request.The record shows on June 16, 2020, Mrs. contacted Expedia to request a refund for the entire package reservation. We can confirm a refund of $1007.02, for the car rental and hotel portion of the vacation package was submitted. It may take up to 30 days for the refund to post back to Mrs. original form of payment.Additionally, the airfare portion of $719.46, is non-refundable, Expedia reviewed *** Airlines flexibility policy on their website which indicates that Mrs., has a Future Travel Credit. Regrettably, *** Airlines is not permitting a refund but a penalty fee waiver until, December 31, 2021. This is based upon their non-refundable airfare restrictions.We received a dispute case from Mrs.’s financial intuition, therefore, we conducted an internal investigation. In most cases when consumers dispute a charge their credit card company will remove the amount disputed from the customer’s statement pending a decision. This means a customer will not be held financially liable while the case is (open/unresolved). Ultimately a reservation can be cancelled during the investigation between a merchant/financial institution. We do attempt to resolve a dispute with a consumer by phone prior to any cancellations. We understand that Mrs. is seeking a full refund instead of a future travel credit. These are unusual circumstances. We have worked with our airline partners to provide customers with flexible solutions due to COVID-19, particularly for non-refundable flights. In Mrs.’s situation, we are bound by *** Airlines terms and conditions. The future travel credit issued by *** Airlines is the only available option at this time. Additionally, by selecting to complete this booking you acknowledge that you’ve read and accepted the below Rules & Restrictions and Expedia’s Terms of Use.*** Airlines Cancellation Policy: Tickets are non-refundable Moreover, Mrs. agreed to Expedia’s Terms of Use, which expressly states:The carriers, hotels and other suppliers providing travel or other services on this Website are independent contractors and not agents or employees of the Expedia Companies or the Expedia Partners.

Expedia, without providing any option, continues to give "flight credit" instead of a cash refund. They did so without contacting me and without my permission. When I contact Expedia to be given a cash refund instead, which I have done multiple times, they do not get back to me in three days as advertised. They do not even attempt to get back to me. They blatantly disregard customers attempts to receive a cash refund, despite knowing they are obligated to. I have requested a cash refund numerous times now over the span of months and Expedia continues to be non compliant and fails to even respond. They are taking money from customers like me without giving us any actual avenue for relief.

I booked a hotel 2/11/20 under itinerary *** for the dates 5/13/20 -5/17/20. COVID-19 happened and the hotel closed in Miami. I received an email from Expedia 4/27/20 asking if I wanted to cancel due to COVID-19. I went ahead and cancelled. Expedia explained that I would received a voucher in 30 days. I contacted customer service on 5/27/20 advising that I had not received my voucher. Customer service advised that my voucher was in "failed status" due to a problem on their end. He advised he was escalating this to a specialized team and I would receive the voucher by email in 48 hours. I contacted customer service 5/30/20 advising I still had not received the voucher. Customer service agent stated that I was supposed to have received the voucher 5/27/20 but it is still in "failed status" on their end and "not to worry" that she was also escalating this to a specialized team and that I would have to wait 4 weeks to receive a reply from Expedia. I feel as if I am getting the "run-a-round". Customer service keeps brushing me off. It went from 30 days to now 4 weeks for an email reply. I followed all of Expedia's instructions. The hotel closed and then only opened for essential business travel in Miami. I feel as if my funds are being held hostage for something out of my control and especially when I followed all the instructions from Expedia. I am very disappointed in this type of service.

Expedia takes money from consumers for reservations, takes a good chunk for themselves, and then pays us our portion via a "one time use virtual credit card", which we are authorized to charge on the day of arrival--and retain, whether the guest shows up or not. We are obliged, in return to keep that room and suite open and ready for the guest. Problem: on three occasions in recent months, they have protested our collection of the funds they authorized via a "one time use virtual card" that they themselves provided to us. This has resulted in losses to us of $643.64

Expedia is responding to the consumer
complaint from Mr. *** (Revdex.com case number ***) would like a
refund. We understand Mr. would
like a full refund for $4708.65.

Our

flights on *** Airlines departing March 22, 2020 from Louisville, KY to Nassau,
*** and returning on March 28, 2020, with a six night stay at *** at
***, airport transfers and the Vacation Waiver via ***.

We can confirm on March 3, 2020, the customer called in and requested to know the
options regarding cancelling. Our
representative advised the flight was in basic economy and was not refundable
and non-changeable, but the customer has a valid vacation waiver. The
representative advised the customer to alter the time to cancel one day before
to insurance can be valid.

On March 17, 2020, the customer called to
cancel the hotel and flight. Our representative
reviewed the account and noted per itinerary history there was no indication
when the hotel was cancelled. The refund
option was above the representative limit, the representative tried to contact
hotel but it was outside of their business hours. The customer called back to cancel the flight due to Covid-19. Our representative processed the cancellation. The customer was advised must rebook on/before
December 29, 2020 and travel to commence travel by December 31, 2020.

I booked a hotel room using *** Hotel Card gift cards. The reservation needed to be changed and the representative from *** said I could give them my credit card, they would book it using the credit card and then refund the charge to the gift card. I received an email indicating the refund had been processed but the last four digits of the card were not mine. When I called their customer service I was first told the funds had been refunded. I continued to call and they said the transaction had not gone through. After many more calls, an escalation and multiple emails I was told that refunds could not be refunded to a gift card and I was out the money. Elliott, who I spoke with on my last call, told me the *** Hotel Card representative had made a mistake in telling me the gift card could be refunded when I had originally made the reservation.

Was booked for a flight from BWI to Calgary, Canada on June 17th to meet up with family and vacation. The airline canceled my flight due to Canada being closed to Non-US citizens. Was entitled to a refund as per my understanding of Federal Law. Expedia refuses to issue a refund. Also bought trip insurance and submitted claim weeks ago. My itinerary # is ***. Their excuse is that *** will not refund, but my credit card says "Expedia" took payment, not ***. I also filed a dispute with my credit card, still waiting to hear. Expedia only issued me a voucher for 24 months. I wrote to them that I did NOT want a voucher, I want a full refund. I am a senior citizen on a fixed income. If I don't or can't use voucher in 24 months, Expedia keeps my money. With Canada being closed until tentatively mid July of 2020, I may never be able to use this voucher. In any event, I DO NOT want a credit/voucher, I want a full refund.

the cancelled flight. The
customer called in to get a refund for the cancelled flight. Our representative advised there was a future

credit and request a refund. Our
representative advised the customer to check with the provider of the protection
for refund possibilities.On June 15,

the future credit was applicable.From June 12, 2020 through July

about the customer receiving a refund for the cancelled flight. Expedia advised per *** policy the
flight has a future travel credit that must
be used to book a new ticket for travel by or before June 12, 2022.On July 9, 2020, the customer contacted our Social Media

Complaint: ***

I am rejecting this response because: when I booked, there was not an ongoing pandemic. My flight was cancelled by Expedia*** due to Canada being closed to non Canadian citizens. A limited time voucher is NOT a cash equivalent as if I cannot use it on that time, I lose my money. That in itself should be illegal. Also, *** was offered g a no expiration, fully transferable ticket. Expedia’s customer service had me on hold for hours, hung up on me and told different stories. There are thousands of complaints on social media about how awful they are. Also my sister had return tickets from *** who specifically told her that they would refund cash but Expedia had to follow a specific process. They either are complicit in keeping g the customer’s money or they are ignorant of what to do. Neither is flattering to them. Therefore, I reject their response that they are offering me an inferior product that I do not want.

Sincerely

I purchased an airplane ticket on 12/30/2019 on Expedia.com for a round trip flight from Cebu, *** to Bangkok, Thailand on January 29, 2020 and February 1, 2020 return from Bangkok to Cebu.

My itinerary number is *** Airlines fully refunded my flight without question due to covid-19 concerns in the island of Cebu, where 70,000 Chinese travel annually.

However Expedia (despite me calling them on the telephone twice - each call lasting over an hour including hold time and speaking with customer service rep Thomas in Egypt) has delayed processing the refund of 272.74.

I have a formal letter from *** Airlines authorizing the refund in full. I have 2 attachments I can provide you:
- *** Airlines formal refund due to covid-19
- Expedia purchase invoice (itinerary number ***)

Also Expedia hotel reservations were canceled (refund for cash paid refunded, BUT EXPEDIA COUPONS OF $50 AND $25 WERE NOT RETURNED TO MY ACCOUNT): ***

Dear Revdex.com,

Thank you for taking
the time to contact Expedia regarding an issue from our customer. We appreciate
the Revdex.com (“Revdex.com”) allowing us time to address the comments and
concerns brought to our attention.

Expedia is responding to the consumer
complaint from Mr. *** (Revdex.com case number ***) would like a refund. We understand Mr. would like a refund
for $272.00 and to also receive the reward points taken from his account at the
time the hotel reservation were created.

Our records indicate on December 30, 2019, Mr. or an authorized user of the Expedia account, self-booked a round trip flight
on *** Airlines
departing on January 29, 2020 from Cebu, *** to Bangkok, Thailand and
returning on January 31, 2020, via ***. We can confirm on May 16, 2020, the customer
emailed Expedia and asked to receive a refund for the cancelled flight. Expedia replied to the customer email and
asked that he call Expedia. Mr. replied advising “I’m not calling anybody. Refund my cancelled flight or I will file written complaints with the
FTC, Revdex.com and authorize my attorney to file legal action (and
publicize it online for a potential class action with other consumers).”
Expedia replied, “unfortunately we are not able to process refunds for flights
in our offline department. We need to have you on the phone while we research
and check on your request. Unfortunately, we are limited to the assistance we
can provide via e-mail correspondence.”

From June 8, 2020 through July 23,
2020, there have been numerous email communications between Mr. and
Expedia regarding the refund request.

Our records indicate on May
16, 2020, Mr. *** or an authorized user of the Expedia account,
self-booked a one night stay at *** checking in on
May 26, 2020 and checking out on May 27, 2020, via ***.

We can confirm on May 22, 2020, a refund was issued for $27.82 and 1,711 Expedia
Reward Points were returned to the customer Expedia account.

Our records indicate on May 16, 2020, Mr. or
an authorized user of the Expedia account, self-booked a one night stay at *** checking in on May 27, 2020 and checking out on May 28,
2020, via ***.

We can confirm on May 22, 2020, a refund was issued for $40.04 to
the original card that was charged.

After further review on July 29, 2020, Expedia contacted *** Airlines since Mr. forwarded the refund application, he received from *** Airlines. *** Airlines advised that
the customer needs to coordinate the refund directly with their ticketing office
Cebu. They advised to have the customer
contact their ticketing office directly *** (if calling from the Philippines).
The two hotel reservations have been refunded and the one reservation that used
Expedia Rewards points, the points have been returned to the customer account.

Please note that Expedia serves as a
third-party intermediary with travel providers such hotels, car rental agencies
and airlines, and is subject to the rules and restrictions of those providers. *** Airlines was the operating carrier and
merchant of record (the entity that received the funds and the company that

completing his booking on our website, Mr. agreed to our Terms of
Use, which expressly provide:Supplier Rules and Restrictions:Additional terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and

I phoned Expedia several times (even again yesterday for an hour) about the refund from *** Airlines. I told both *** Air and Expedia through whom the air ticket was bought to provide a refund, neither has thus far, both pointing to the other and shunning responsibility.

Expedia received payment for the air ticket and now must refund.

Revdex.comAlaska, Oregon & Western WashingtonComplaint DepartmentRe: Expedia Case #: ***Dear Revdex.com,Thank
you for forwarding the Revdex.com *** consumer rebuttal
from Mr. *** We regret to hear Mr. did
not accept our response.

We are again responding to Mr. complaint
regarding a refund. We understand that Mr. believes that Expedia charged him and
should refund him and he also request that the two hotel reservation that were
cancelled have the coupons reapplied to his account. Expedia stands behind our previous
response. We have verified since the last Revdex.com complaint was addressed on July
29, 2020 that the customer contacted Expedia on August 6, 2020. The customer called in wanting to follow up
on refund. Our representative reviewed the previous notes and an email from Philippine
Airlines that advised the refund was processed on June 27, 2020. Our representative was unable to open the
airline ticket information as *** Airlines has taken over control of the
record. The customer was advised to
check with his bank. The customer
insisted the refund should come from Expedia and advised he will sue and will report
to Revdex.com. Customer wanted a Supervisor,
our representative called and the line was disconnected. The customer was called back but would not
wait on the line.After further review on August 9, 2020, Expedia
verified the customer purchased a
published fare ticket and was charged directly by *** Airlines. Expedia previously spoke with *** Airlines and they advised that the customer that
the customer needed to coordinate the refund directly with their ticketing
office in Cebu. They advised to have the
customer contact their ticketing office directly *** (if calling from
the Philippines). Expedia previously
advised the two hotel reservations had been cancelled and refunded. Expedia confirms a $25 coupon was associated with each of the hotel reservations
when they were initially booked. The
coupon terms and conditions stated the coupon will be deemed fully used once a
qualifying reservation has been made and will not be returned or replaced, even
in the event that the reservation is cancelled.Thank
you for allowing us to address this matter further. If you have any further questions or concerns
regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us.Sincerely, Di-Di *** Corporate Correspondence Team

Expedia promised me a refund for my hotel cancellation on March 29, 2020 ( email in hand) after the hotel closed due to covid 19. This refund was aborted on April 4 and they have now refused to provide the refund, saying "the hotel has refused to give refunds only credits". On Jun 13, I received another email now saying I WOULD receive the refund. However, I am now unable to reach anyone in Expedia in authority to confirm this. I waited on hold 2 hours on June 15 and was told it might be another 2 hours to reach a supervisor.

I called EXPEDIA on 5/29/20 to rebook my tickets after the COVID issues. I was told on that date it would an additional $301 per ticket. I received the email confirming the ticket change, but it had the wrong dates. I called Expedia numerous times after that, and I was told that they never ticketed the flight (a problem with opening the ticket on their end) and the would honor my price. Now they are saying they will not honor the price and it has went up several hundred dollars. I have been on the phone over 25 hours dealing with them. Please assist ASAP.
