Disputing Priceline with VISA

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I recently had a horrible experience with Priceline. I bid on a 3 star hotel and got a motel instead that had horrible ratings. (I already posted my win in the hotel board) I wrote a letter to the executive management team at Priceline to see what they can do for me. But if they won't help me, I am thinking about disputing the charge with Visa. Has anyone done this before and won their case?

nothing can stop you from trying, but you might not have a lot of luck winning if priceline disagrees with you about star rating

Choose your battles wisely. If you dispute your charges, Priceline will probably ban you. Is it worth it?

Yes, it is worth it, because you can always find another person to book your stay for you!

PS. I recently read about someone who got to the hotel, and there was no room waiting for them. (it was posted on this board). They only offered the couple $55 back for what they paid and a small credit for the next stay.

I'd be taking their behinds to court for breach of contract, plus expenses for wasting my time.

this isn't the kind of thing to be settled in court, the judge would just tell you "dispute the charges with your credit card company"

I was referring to not providing a hotel room. That is something which you can sue for. You can't ask a credit card company for damages (without insurance, that is).

You enter into a contract with Priceline that they will provide you with a hotel room at said location for this amount. You even pre-pay the amount in advance.

but the thing is priceline has surely had people who have threatened to sue them by now when they consider priceline breaks their terms of the contract.......probably would've been a big class-action lawsuit against them by now if it was really that big of a problem

it would be interesting to see if priceline has ever actually been sued before though

hello saving money

we are the couple without a room - priceline have now offered to pay the difference between the hotel i should have had with them ($50+) and the one we stayed in ($200+)

i will find out if the full refund has been made to my credit card when i receive my next statement

i had to really push because the customer services reps (phone and email) kept saying that a refund of $50+ was the best i could expect

i emailed the executive offices after advice on this site

it really does seem to pay to complain (if you have a case) :)
