  • orbitz worst cuatomer service ever

    I bought two tickets to Madrid with Orbitz, even though they charge for the two they only book ONE with the airline. I realized that when I tried to look my bookings in the airline site. After HOURS on hold and several calls for three days, they "solve" the problem. In the middle of my trip I checked the return flights and they made the same mistake! I had to hire a virtual aassistant to help me solve my problem. orbitz response a $99 discount coupon! ORBITZ NEVER ever again. More...

  • Orbitz Misrepresents Properties to get your money

    I booked a hotel through an employers vacation website that was through Orbitz. The hotel was represented as being oceanfront with private beach and it was not. I wanted oceanfront for my 55th birthday and when I arrived and found it was not I called Orbitz. The representative refused to let me speak to a supervisor and they refused to refund even though they misrepresented the property on the website. I was forced to stay at the hotel even though it was nice it was not what I thought I booked. I called Orbitz on Tues following my stay to speak with a supervisor. After a long hold and a... More...

  • Searches never Finish on Orbitz

    With Expedia and Kayak I can search for airline flights just fine. With Orbitz, when I submit a search it goes to "Stand by ...Completing your request ...then eventually the search screen comes back with "Sorry, there was an error when processing your request. Please try again. I've tried using Chrome, Firefox, and IE. All have the same issue. Yet no other travel site has this problem. I even turned off my anti-tracking browser add-ons temporarily. More...

  • Broadway show ticket voucher not accepted

    RIDICULOUS!! Customer service is dreadful! I called multiple times over days to get a refund for tickets that we paid for in Aug for a Dec 22 Show in NYC for Wicked. ALWAYS did I get an operator who could not speak English. Always I found myself "on hold" for a very long time, while music BLARED in my ear. I MANY times had to re-tell my complaint. I could deal with different "supervisors" in the refund dept. I would get varied responses. I'd wait for a call back and never get one. I would ask customer service pointed questions which were "skirted"... More...

  • Terrible experience

    My experience with Orbitz was TERRIBLE. The airline changed the flight, Orbitz was supposed to notify me, but I didn't receive anything from them. So I missed my international flight, and had to reschedule my connection flight. Luckily the airline (not Orbitz) was able to reschedule my international flight at no charge. The agent claims that Orbitz sent me a notification of the change in the flight, to my hotmail account registered on the Orbitz site. However, I did NOT receive that notification, and when I asked her to forward me the email they had sent, she said that she could not... More...

    ORBITZ NEVER again- UNDERHANDED and DISHONEST, Treating Customers with INEQUALITY Orbitz is an unethical company. Please do NOT EVER consider using them if you want a pleasant trip or experience. I purchased airline tickets for the first time with Orbitz, for a trip to Patagonia and Antarctica in Nov/Dec of 2014, and it will the very LAST time I will ever use them. While in Patagonia, I got word that our Antarctica trip was cancelled due to boat engine malfunction. Not our free choice. Not under our control. We had no need to go to Ushuaia, the port city from which we would have... More...

  • Misleading pricing

    I am looking to purchase tickets to India for travel in mid-December. I have been looking on Orbitz for some time. They have been showing the flight prices at 999.26 (return) for the dates I am looking at. I have been trying to purchase these tickets for the last 7 days. First the site was showing there were 4 tickets left at this price (on Nov 3). Today I can see the same tickets for the same price and it says there are 2 tickets left at this price. However if I go to purchase, there is a mysterious 'error' and it kicks me back to the Orbitz home page. This is happening for a few... More...

  • Changed flight and was NEVER notified!

    I booked flights for our wedding in St. Lucia back in February of 2014. We realized one couple could no longer attend due to a medical reason. We were finally able to get American Airlines to transfer the flights to two other family members. When my brother in law was talking to his travel agent about it, she noticed that the flight we were supposed to be taking out of Pittsburgh at 6:30am and connecting in Miami to fly to St. Lucia was no longer available! The change was made on April 20th, 2014 and ORBITZ did NOT notify us of this change. I found out less than two months prior to the trip... More...

  • Charge more for hotel room than the hotel does for regular customers!

    After booking a room at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs, Co through Orbitz, I was charged $139.34 ($125.32 for the room plus taxes) for the night of 9/15/14. After checking out the next morning at the hotel, they ended up double charging me for the room and only charged me $109.99 for the night (total of $146.80 with room service). I have had the double charge removed by the Hotel Colorado. When I called Orbitz to ask why I was charged more through them than I would have been charged just walking into the hotel and asking for a room for that night, they told me that the $109.99 that...

  • Orbitz worst online flight booking company ever

    Worst online flight booking company ever. Booked a flight leaving at 10:30 am for me and my son and received the itinerary with a flight leaving at 6 am. They put my 7yr old son as the primary on the account and would not speak to me as I was not the primary. Really? I was transferred back into the system over 3 times. The automated system when I called in was choppy and not functioning properly. I had to call several different times just to get the system to work. When I finally got to speak with a representative I was told that the free cancelation did not exist even though it is... More...

  • Refund for Malaysia Airline flight cancellation

    My husband and I booked our honeymoon flights on Malaysia Airlines via Orbitz. Following the MH17 disaster, Malaysia airlines issued a statement that people could cancel or postpone any upcoming flights through Dec 31,2024 if they did so before July 24, 2014 for a full refund even if tickets were non-refundable. We cancelled our flights on 7/21/14 and have been waiting to receive our refund of $3,898.60. I received an email yesterday from Orbitz saying that Malaysia Airlines denied our refund request. I called Orbitz customer service and after being on hold for 22 min I was connected to... More...

  • Don't stand by lowest price guarantee

    I recently checked into a hotel that I had booked through Orbitz for $199.00 a night. The hotel quoted me a price of $159.00 and they said that is the rate that I would be charged. When I was charged $199.00 from Ortitz I was told that was the price at the time I booked and that is what they wouldn't meet the hotel price! I only reached customer service after 7 attempts where I was told no one was available to help me. No more ORBITZ-- next time I would call hotel directly. Have no idea what they mean by lowest price guarantee. I guess if they tell you a room is $1000.00 and you... More...

  • Orbitz is not a good business

    I booked a room for two nights. There were 4 colleagues staying in one room so we booked a large suite with 2 beds. Upon arriving at the hotel we were given a tiny room with one bed. The hotel blamed Orbitz for not ensuring the room we booked was available. When I called Orbitz of course they blamed the hotel for not holding the room. Orbitz would not refund the cost of the original room. They only offered a $20 off future booking coupon! That's absurd. I'll never book with them again. More...

  • Orbitz, poor customer care

    Tried to book a cruise, flight, and hotel in a package deal. Was advised over the phone with Orbitz employee that I could not do that, that I had to book each separately. So I did, booked the cruise, hotel and then within an hour attempted to book the flight. During this one hour or less time the airfare went from $1060. to $1340. I called Orbitz back to complain about this, since when I booked the hotel on Orbitz there was a note that read, "book hotel and flight together and save up to $560." If they had booked these when I first called I would have gotten the lower... More...

  • Stranded in Quito because of Orbitz

    On our recent trip to Ecuador, I bought the following domestic route on Orbitz: Quito-Cuenca-Quito-Manta-Quito. The segments from-to Quito and Cuenca were fine. However, when we tried to get on the flight (July 29, 2014) from Quito to Manta, the carrier, Aerogal, now owned by Avianca, said we didn't even appear on the passenger list. The Aerogal agents that helped us couldn't find us on the list, no matter how many times or different ways they tried to locate our names or e-tickets. In the end, we had to buy the segment again at more than the original price we paid Orbitz. We sent... More...

  • Purchase confirmed no confirmation received...NO FLIGHT!!!!!!!!!

    The customer service center is laughable. Not only are they unresponsive to any questions they have zero knowledge about their own polices. BEWARE with your credit card information. DO NOT authorize any charges because they will not confirm a flight. After 3 phone calls and 2 hours of my life, nothing was resolved. I heard more home alone and wedding march hold music than any answers to my questions and concerns. First my frustrations began when trying to book a simple domestic round trip flight online.

Granted, we had booked the room earlier that day, and we do understand that mistakes happen. However, as soon as the front desk at the Hilton realized the mistake that Orbitz had made, early that afternoon, they called them and requested that Hilton be given a number to call to inform us of the mistake. Due to Orbitz policy they were not authorized to give out our number and instead promised that they... More...

    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.

    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...

  • 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 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.

    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...
