tripres.com Paid for "cancellation" insurance and wast told it will cost me more! Internet
*Consumer Comment: This happen to me too, and even worst
I discussed a little, with Nerrada, about this and asked how soon would I have to notify them, to get my refund and if I would get a full refund. He said I could call the day of my booking and get a refund. (I can't remember the exact words, but, supposedly the conversation was recorded)
I had told Nerrada that I wanted to get the insurance, because near past, I had paid for events that I had to cancell, and lost money.. and, so I wanted to insure that this time, I didn't lose my money. Nerrada led me to believe that all was well, and that I would be covered and able to cancell for no reason at all.
Well, we found out yesterday, that the reception date had been changed, and we will not be able to go on the new date. So, today, I tried to cancell my reservations.
I was told that the insurance that I got did not cover for "date changes", and that only if there was a death in the family, would I get my money back. This was NOT what I was told in the first place!
After arguing with the representative named, Jerry, he said he would listen to the recorded conversation and get back to us.
In the meantime, my husband called the Tripres.com (800-255-0372) and the woman who he talked to, told us that it would cost us $50.00 per person to cancell our reservations, ($100.00) or it would cost us $25.00 to change the date of the reservations. When David asked what it would cost if we hadn't gotten insurance, the woman said there would be no change and that we would have to pay the cancellation fees and then we could call the Travel Guard Group, with whom the insurance policy was subcontracted (by Tripres.com) and see if we could get them to reimburse us.
I DID NOT purchase insurance on my reservations for any other purpose, but in case I had to cancell; so, I could get my money back. I feel I was taken advantage of and "screwed" out of my money, having to pay for insurance that did NOTHING for me!
This is fraudulent in my opinion! I feel I was lied to or in the least, mislead to believe that I was "covered" if I had to cancel my reservations. LIES!
