Complaint Review: Travelocity - Dallas TX
Travelocity Travelocity False Advertisement and No Accountability Dallas TX
*Consumer Comment: They ALL Are!
From June 6th to 9th 2019, myself and my 3 friends took a trip to Puerto Vallarta, MX. We booked our flight and accommodations with Travelocity on May 7th 2019. When we arrived to the resort, Villa de Palmar Flamingos Beach Resort and Spa, on June 6th, 2019 and was told we did not book an all-inclusive room, when in fact on our itinerary it says all inclusive.
The resort mentioned we could buy the all-inclusive amenities for $99 per person per night, which would equal $1,188 for 4 people. We could not solve the issue with the hotel because we booked everything with Travelocity. First we were told that we just boked at the wrong hotel because apparently the hotel has 3 different bookings (mind you they are all named different so there no way we booked the wrong hotel)then were told we just book the wrong room package (it does not give any other option but all-inclusive).
So we spent over 6 hours on the phone and spoke to over 15 agents and managers over the course of 2 days even 2 corporate office customer service managers. Every single agent and manger refused to take responsibility that Travelocity had incorrectly advertised on their website and would not rectify the situation even though we not only had evidence on our itinerary saying "all-inclusive", the hotel details literally saying that it is all-inclusive (meals and beverages included) and what it is included as well as screenshots of the website saying that the hotel and rooms are "All-Inclusive" with no other options to choose a non-inclusive room.
The website also does say that this particular resort has all meals included. Also, the resort is listed under all-inclusive hotels on Travelocity's website. We suggested doing a screen share, skype, or webex to show what we see from our computer screen as a customer when trying to book and was refused and told that no one could do that, which is false. IT could've intervened.
We were told by one of the corporate manager that we should've called the resort ourselves before booking also was ignorantly mocked as if we didn't know what all-inclusive means. How does that make sense when we are using your service to book and information should already be accurate?! The toll-free lines are all recorded and we had 1 agents out of 15 actually say “the website doesn’t show whether the rooms re non-inclusive or all-inclusive but the resort does say all-inclusive”. Confirming that we were correct and that a customer would assume that they are receiving an all-inclusive package.
Travelocity then lied and stated that none of those conversations were recorded to save themselves. Since our initial complaint on 6/6/19 to Travelocity, they have added an option under our exact resort, Villa de Palmar Flamingos Beach Resort and Spa, for non all-inclusive, so why not take accountability when it wasn't there when we booked last month? but It still says the resort is all inclusive.
Travelocity is advertising rooms that the hotel clearly says is wrong. Due to the disconnect between the resort and Travelocity, we should be refunded our money. We booked with Travelocity only because this resort was all-inclusive, if we weren’t going to get what was advertised we would’ve booked elsewhere. Travelocity is a scam.
