I am planning a trip to the Alabama beaches this summer but am concerned about how difficult it is to book a condo. Have I just had bad luck or is this just normally how it goes in Alabama. While on Vrbo I have found units that I was interested in only to be told that the units weren't available when the calendar clearly shows them as available , but that they could book me into other units. (bait and switch?)
Today I was going to book another unit and was waiting on a brochure of the condo complex (Beach Club) which the owner said they would send before giving a deposit today. I was patient because the owner said she was out and couldn't send it with her phone. When I emailed back that I didn't receive it, she said it was booked.
I have never experienced anything like this while booking anywhere else , and I travel a lot! Does this happen often? Or have I just had bad luck?
