  • Orbitz: Impossible phone service and lack of response on an important safety issue



    A month ago I booked a flight on Turkish Airlines with a stopover in Istanbul. After a series of nearly 2000 rockets launched against Israel and harsh anti-Semitic comments by the PM of Turkey ("Israel is worse than Nazi German") and riots during which our embassy was attacked our Foreign Ministry urged Israelis to not travel to Turkey because of the risk involved. I have been trying to change my ticket for three days through Orbitz. I have been on international long distance calls with Orbitz for more than four hours. I have been cut off, given incorrect information and found... More...

  • ORBITZ WANTS US TO FLY TO A WARZONE!!



    DO NOT BOOK WITH ORBITZ, their customer service (CS) is nonexistent, once they take your money you are out of luck if the situation changes or you have any issues completing your travel. This is from experience. My husband and I had booked a flight from NYC to Tel Aviv to visit the holy cities at the end of July and now due to the conflict between Israel and Gaza, we were warned by the embassy to cancel our arrangements and my husband could not get the visa. Once we found out we immediately tried to contact Orbitz CS (about a month before we were scheduled to travel) and they told us that... More...

I am a Hilton Honors member and that made no difference. 1:30 a.m. before I was shuttled to another more expensive hotel that did not have a handicap room available - Disabled vet husband was not able to use the shower or go to the bathroom unaided.

  • Mystery fees



    Booked flights with Orbitz (Jet Blue) for a business trip which cost $688.00. I was forced to change my return flight to a day earlier, and received a receipt via e-mail with "Total due at booking, $915.00" this is expensive, but I had to change so i'm okay with it. Making a change like this, one would expect some sort of nominal fee for a change, and in Orbitz terms and conditions it says a $30.00 change fee. Again, i'm okay with that. Here is the problem: My credit card statement shows up and when I add up the total charges I come up with $1095.00, which is $150.00... More...

    I have been sold a flight by Orbitz World Wide that has a transfer time under the required minimum recommended by the airline - Jet Airways - in Mumbai.

We were told that our tickets didn't exist, had to rebook through the airline, then our baggage was lost. on the return flight, we made it through security and got to the gate tofind out that our tickets weren't paid for....we paid for them three months ago. Orbitz has been zero help in resolving this issue, and has led us in circles regarding our tickets and iteneraries. DO NOT USE. More...

  • Misleading Information and Abhorrent Customer Service



    My husband called Orbitz on May 25 about an inconvenient flight change made without our permission (record #PBORB7319295814). My husband requested to be changed to a flight some other members of our party had been put on instead, but my husband wasn't sure which airline the new flights were. He suggested they might be under US Airlines, and the representative told my husband that he would not be able to make that change since it was a different airline.

  • Orbitz hung us out to dry (family of 8)



    We got shafted by Fiji Airways in Australia...unfortunately the 8 grand we paid to Orbitz for tickets didn't mean jack...they could have got us a direct flight that would have solved everything, but instead hid behind Fiji Airways and said, "So sorry, we can't do anything to help you guys."...right. Here we are a family of 8 and stuck traversing the continent of Australia only because they would 'fix' the situation. Very disappointing in a this big time travel company. More...

    This review has been resolved or replied to by this company. I reserved a hotel through Orbitz and paid $205.24 for 3 days in San Antonio. As i arrived to check in, the hotel look deserted. I went with my friends to check in, i asked the clerk to show me the room because i had a bad vibe from the beginning. She took me to show me the room, and she said "the room has not been cleaned for 3 months." As she opened the room, there was bugs, mold, dust and even spiders all over the place. I simply turn my back and said i do not want the room. I called Orbitz to refund me my money stating what had happened. After staying on the phone for about 2... More...

  • Orbitz Failure to Compensate



    This review has been resolved or replied to by this company. We are a group of 5 and we booked via Orbitz on Alitalia a multiple destination trip. We were shocked to discover by mere coincidence, only TWO days before travelling that Alitalia cancelled the flight and placed us in another one which reaches the destination late at night instead of morning (as was the case in our original booking)! Of course, we rejected the option of reaching our destination at night (it ruins the whole day) and at the same time Alitalia had no other flight options on that day. We had two solutions: Either we accept the bitter reality and remain in this late-night... More...

DO NOT BOOK WITH ORBITZ, their customer service (CS) is nonexistent, once they take your money you are out of luck if the situation changes or you have any issues completing your travel. This is from experience. My husband and I had booked a flight from NYC to Tel Aviv to visit the holy cities at the end of July and now due to the conflict between Israel and Gaza, we were warned by the embassy to cancel our arrangements and my husband could not get the visa. Once we found out we immediately tried to contact Orbitz CS (about a month before we were scheduled to travel) and they told us that we had to call Ukraine airlines,(they purchased the flights directly from them and it showed up as such on my statement). We did that and they said they couldn't do anything that we had to go back to Orbitz... long story short they refused to refund us the money or any other option so now we have to dispute our transaction with our bank, they want us to go to a war zone!!??!! Unbelievable. SO PLEASE DO NOT BOOK WITH THEM! YOU ARE BETTER OFF USING GOOGLE FLIGHTS OR PRICELINE AND PURCHASING THE FLIGHTS DIRECTLY FROM THE AIRLINE. I travel at least 3-4 times a year, I had a similar issue where I had to reroute my flight with Ethiopian airways and they were much more accommodating.

Hello there,

I booked a flight on Orbitz.com, but didn't realize at the time that it was 47 hours long with 2 14hours long layovers. I have a request, can orbitz provide me with a hotel in Abu Dhabi as a courtesy, I would really appreciate if you could make this happen. Or just provide me with a voucher that i can use to book a hotel.
Thanks in advance.

We sat on hold with three different individuals in the parking lot of the hotel while we should have been checked into our one-bedroom ocean view suite and should have been sitting on the beach. This is the absolute worst customer service we have ever experienced and we will never book on Orbitz again. We are a couple that travels more than once per month all over the world and we will never ever use this site again. I am absolutely shocked at the terrible service of this company, and will be sure to spread the word to never use this service.

So this is my story I booked a flight due to a family emergency, and the flight was from Boston to Frankfurt to Munich and after to Moldova .When I got to airport 3 hours before the flight to check in they informed me that I can't bird since I have no visa for Germany since Frankfurt to Munich is a domestic flight . I went to Lufthansa ticketink desk to se if anyone can help me and all they said is that they don't have anything similar and that I should call the agency that I booked with which I did after 30 min if hold agency transferred me back to Lufthansa coustomer service since is nothing to do with them. Well after another painful 45 min the coustomer representative fro Lufthansa tells me they don't have anything similar unless I can pay 1600$ extra on top of my 2200$ which I already spent . I was shocked I hang up and looked at the time it was 4:45 pm my original flight left !!! I went to the counter for tickets and ask a different person if he could help me he tried but unfortunately since so much time past the only option was to pay 1252 $ extra which was cheaper then someone else told me and I have to depart next following day and with a stop in Munich of 11 hours so ill be arriving on Sunday at 11:55 pm in Moldova . I had no choise and I did book it.
Well now let's get back for my reason of traveling on short notice , it was because my father had his second hart atack and was in a hospital and in all this time I spent in trying to get to Moldova he past away .... Now I'm writing this on Friday night on may third 2013 , the sad story I have no choice to wait till tommorow to get on my flight that Lufthansa charged me again to get there on almost Monday when is my loved fathers burial .
I will leave the same rewiev to orbitz which I will advice to evryone never to use.

I Booked A Hotel In Myrtle Beach For St. Patricks Day(3/15-3/17)Weekend Through Orbitz. I Recieved An E-Mail That Confirmed My Reservations. After Driving 5Hrs To Get To My Destination, The Hotel Had A Cancellation Notice From Orbitz. I Never Cancelled! I called Orbitz Customer Service Line, Just To Be Put On Hold For Over 45Minutes. I Couldnt Get Through To Anyone. Luckily, The Hotel Had A Room Left. I Went Ahead And Paid Through The Hotel Which Was $70 More Dollars Than What I Had Originally Paid Orbitz, And Stayed.I couldnt Get Through To Customer service Until The Next Day At Orbitz.The CustomerService Representative Was VERY Rude To My Complaint. VERY Rude. She Argued, Cut Me Off From Talking, Put Me On Hold WHILE I Was Talking...Was Very Unhelpful. After Being On The Phone With Her For Over An Hour, She Said I Should Recieve My Refund From orbitz Within 72 Hour. What About The Extra $ That I Had To pay At The hotel? What About The Extreme Inconvenience? What About A Cancellation Fee For Reservations That I Didnt Even Cancel? We Shall See. I Am A Returning Customer Of Orbitz, But After What I Was Put Through, They Have Lost Me As A Customer. I Will Not Be Using Them Again.

I was trying to purchase an airline ticket online. what happend, It did not went thru and I did it again and again hopeping that it will go through it didnt. I went banking online right away, OMG orbits chargrd my cards $2 three time. I was so disappointed because the transaction it didnt went through not complete but they charged us anayway. I called orbitz 800 number and the lady that answer the call said, "oh its just a pendig charges". I think orbitz its a rip off! the transcas it did not went through but yes they already charged me 2$ three times. I thought i can save money but no I ended up charges in my card that i didnt even get. it is a rip off! I try t convience another orbitz customer service if she could wave the phone charged if i do it on the phone because i couldnt do it online but she said she cant wave the $25 phone transaction fee, it is a rip off! instead of helping me to wave the $25 dollars they try to get more money out of me. It is a total rip off!

Orbitz vacation booking misleading

When I made my booking for a vacation trip in Cancun on March 4th on the Orbitz Web site, the option of "all inclusive" was offered and I made sure that I selected it. In the reservation confirmation, the note "EXCLUSIVE! Beach Hotel Promotion" was included which I interpreted as being the indication of the "all inclusive" option. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told that they had not had any agreement with Orbits for "all inclusive" since March 2011. Having re-checked Orbitz Web site for the same travel package on March 24th, the option of "all inclusive" no longer appeared. I called the Orbitz office from the hotel on March 24th and after an hour of wait and transfer, I was told that this was my word against theirs and nothing would be done. My guess is that this misleading information on the Orbitz Web site resulted from a sloppy maintenance of the Web site and they would not recognize their error. This is unacceptable. Beware!!!

Excursion RIP-OFF!!!! I booked my trip through Orbitz instead of going directly through the cruise line because they offered a $70.00 credit on an excursion. I chose an excursion and paid the extra $56.00. Then when I took the trip I realized that this excursion that THEY offered could not be taken because we would not be there yet. It never should have been offered. Worse part......not only did my travel agent through orbitz not help, but neither did orbtz. They pushed me off onto shore excursions (the company orbitz booked through)They denied me twice saying that 6 other people from my boat were there.Lie lie lie!!. I had to contact Carnival and get them to send me an email with the details of the time table that the ship was on to prove I wasn't there. Carnival who I didn't book from helped me when Orbitz did NOTHING. I did get back my $56.00 after all that effort but got screwed on the Orbitz end. FOOL ME ONCE SHAME ON YOU. FOOL ME TWICE SHAME ON ME.....That's not gonna happen
