Ratings and Reviews
Hotwire customer care terrible
Booked a hot deal and my card was charged. I was then brought to a screen that said an error occurred and that deal was no longer available. So I had a full trip charged to my card and Hotwire customer care refused to do anything except lay the blame on my credit card company and me. Took 4 days for the credit to be available on my card again. Their customer care department is a third party company out of Malaysia that refuses to give you information on how to contact Hotwire corporate offices after they ultimately refuse to help you.
Stay away from Hotwire. They’ll cause your money to be caught in limbo while you watch hotel prices get higher by the day waiting for it to be freed back to available credit. I booked my room directly through Hampton Inn, the hotel Hotwire suggested I’d get with the hot deal and they were more sympathetic to my problem than Hotwire was and provided the same rate.
Do yourself a favor and book directly through the hotel. Many times they’ll honor prices found on apps like Hotwire. Avoid Hotwire, Expedia and Priceline. They’re all the same company who doesn’t care about you. Just a middleman trying to carve a slice of something they don’t deserve.
The agency Hotwire gave me , Thrifty
I rented a car thru you guys and you gave me Thruftybcar rental. The first car was defective so I had to cut my vs ation short and drivecakl tgedwsyvbsck to Nashville to exchange the car, too late to do what I wanted in my vacation . I called strictly they extended my rental one day . I still didn’t get rondo anything since they couldn’t find my contract on the car . It was such a big mess. I took car back to dat. Spoke to the manager at Trifty at Nashville airport location Carlton. He told me that I didn’t have any charges on my rental that it all was refunded. I came back home looked on my Cc to see and there still a charge from Hotwire on the rental car. I’m so confused. This has been the worst vacation I have ever had because of all that has happened. I thought Carlton was gonna refund my charges and he looked and saw where nothing was charged but mybCC said different. I then tried to call Carlton but no one answered at that location. I really feel that the service I got from both companies was quite unsatisfactory for even charging me. How would you feel if it was your vacation?
Best Deals I’ve seen this far!
I’ve used Hotwire twice now, both to book hotels in Charlotte, NC. First one was a 4-Star Hotel in Uptown Charlotte for about $111/night which was about $140 cheaper than any other hotel in the city. Next time I used it we got a 4-Star Hotel in the heart of the city for about $104/night - even better than the first time! Although you may not know exactly where you’re staying at the time of booking, it may be worth while if you are planning on being in a big city or somewhere loaded with hotels because this website will give you the best rate because of that no show until book policy. Just read the details like free WiFi, parking, choose your bed or hotel chooses for you, etc. before booking and you shouldn’t have a problem!!
