I am a frequent international traveller, I deal continually with international currencies and exchange rate shifts during the course of my professional life. I booked a one-week stay in a Budapest Hotel through Prestigia, was quoted a price in American Dollars, and then magically when BOTH my deposit to Prestigia AND my hotel charges were deducted from my account prior to my arrival, the amounts deducted were GROSSLY, DISGUSTINGLY and ABSURDLY out of line with what I was quoted as the total price for my 1 week stay. I could have easily booked on a different website for a better price, given what Prestigia's "Final Price" ending up really being, as opposed to what they "Advertised" it as being ... this is truly unequivocal fraudulent activity, I don't know how these people are still in business ...
Currencies indeed do shift, we all understand this, but a single-day shift of $55 from when the reservation is made to when the funds are deducted is grossly ridiculous, and really smacks of huge huge impropriety and misleading advertising, and absolute fraud ... at its worst.
I STRONGLY discourage anyone to ever ever ever utilize Prestigia.com to book their travel, they give you the illusion of a deal when in fact they are patently ripping you off, hardcore !
