Cheaptrips - ACA Member ripoff and fraudulent billing on credit card, refused to match price of cheaper carrier, kept on telephone for 1 hour talking with different supervisor Golden Colorado
Today 17 May 04,I recieved my creditcard bill and was charged $119.95 by ACA.CHEAPTRIPS.COM 800-383-7667. RIPOFF
After receiving membership letter and pin number I contacted as instructed for airline tickets.
Also on line now promotional offer for cheaptrips changed. Join now you and your spouse for $74.95 for lifetime membership and recieve 2 free airline tickets.
Logging on to the Cheaptrips.com/ACA for airline pricing I called 800-933-3065 and spoke with the clerk. Joanne informed me I must call another number for ticket request. She became rude when I question about the promotional change for the cheaper membership and free tickets. Joanne said that was my problem and they would not authorize any changes.
I then called the next number for booking tickets and spoke withn a man. Asking for tickets from Frankfurt Germany to Tenerife, Canary Islands. He offered airfare for two passanger for $225.00 each ticket plus $99.95 taxes per ticket. $324.95 total $649.90.
I found online ticket pricing for $579.00 on the same airline and same flight while on the phone with the clerk. I requested he match the price as the contracted/agreement said when I joined. I was rebuked and told the ticket was not available for the price I quoted because the internet was 30 minute delay. All tickets were sold and I was wrong. He refused to book my flight for the $649.90 price because I was going to book online for the $579.00 quote.
I then called customer service and spoke with Debbie Skipper who then passed me to supervisor Lesley Peterson (Lpeterson@cheaptrips.com 856-424-3232). She then listened to my concerns and instructed me to send email explaing the problem and she would work the issue.
My request to Lesley was a full refund. She told me I needed to send an email to the refund department at firstname.lastname@example.org and they would look into my case.
I spent over 90 minutes on the telephone trying to resolve the issue and feel I made little progress. I was paying for a phone call from Heidelberg, Germany to where ever I called.
I am in the military and feel this is a terrible way to treat service members at this time with all going on in the world.
