    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Is there anyone that can assist me? I have called and spoke to 3 different people that all admit I was charged the cancelation fee TWICE, but they won't refund the money. I booked 4 round trip tickets from Atlanta to San Fransico last minute and the day we were supposed to leave and had a sereve panic attack. I went to the ER. Once I gathered myself, I called Priceline and they called the hospital to confirm that I was there. Here is what I received via email from them.

1. Your original airline ticket request has been cancelled. Your account will be

refunded the amount of the original charge minus the noted amounts. All refunds

will be posted to your credit card account within 10 business days. A breakdown

of these transactions is as follows:

Original Charge Amount: $1,557.00

Non-refundable Processing Fee: -$29.80

Cancellation Fee: -$400.00

Non-refundable Shipping Fee: -$0.00

Travel Insurance: -$0.00

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Refunded Amount: $1,127.20

I checked my account today, 05/29/2009 and they only refunded me $727.20. I knew instantly what happened. They charged me the Cancellation Fee twice. I called Priceline and after 10 minutes of trying to explain what happened, I was disconnected. I called back and spoke to a girl who was probably 18 and she had no clue as to what she was doing and put me on hold about 5 times. Finally she figures out what happened and she said they system charged the cancellation price twice, but there's nothing she can do...then became frustrated and said if "You need need to take it further, then do it". Are you kidding me??

Then I hung up on her. While we were on the phone, the first Customer Care Agent I was disconnected with called back and left a message and said, please call us back, I know what happened, you were charged the cancellation fee twice. I SAVED THE MESASGE. So I called back and then that Rep said send some email to whom ever and they will straighten this out. I'm reading all over the net the Priceline is a horrible company and that they are crooked. All of this for $400? This money is due back to me and I need to make sure that I get it.

Please help!

Did you pay by credit card? Can you enter the transaction into dispute? Been successful for me in the past when I get nowhere with getting a refund.

I'm assuming that your airline tix were non-refundable and PRICELINE is refunding you for the price you paid, less a cancellation fee, so not sure why you call them a 'horrible and crooked company'... they're actually do more than they need to. :)

So did you email the person you were told to send the information to?

Please read the post again. They did not refund the $1,127.20 and admitted to subtracting the cancellation fee TWICE. Why would I even post here if I receive the amount promised?

It was a debit card. So you think calling Wachovia bank will help?

I get it, my point is that they have agreed to refund your money, less a cancellation fee... but apparently there was a glitch and now you need to have somebody fix the accounting error.

Have you emailed the person who they told you to contact?

Go to PRICELINE web site. At the bottom select Investor Relations. That will get you to another list. Choose Management. There is an option to choose 'customer complaints'. Email your situation and, hopefully, someone will reply via email. If you are not satisfied with the reply, there may be a contact person/number to call. I hope this helps you. Please let me know the results.
