Be careful with the payment
Posted Oct 25, 2011
I have used Expedia for more than 10 years. My understanding (and experience) is that when the reservation is made with Expedia, Expedia charged my credit card and I do not have to deal with the hotel on payment issues. However, this hotel asked me to pay upon check-out (and I paid) and told me that this is their arrangement with Expedia. I had to catch a train and did not have time to check all these things then, so I paid. They did say that I may contact them if in the end it turns out that I paid twice (to Expedia upon reservation and to the hotel upon staying there). I do not know now and will learn if I indeed paid twice after I receive the statements from my credit card company in a few weeks.
I was a bit annoyed by this. Perhaps this was due to the fact that the hotel had deals with Expedia only recently. I do not know.
