Dont buy fron tripres.com

Beware of crooks.

I made a reservation online, it went through. Later a woman called, said that the hotel did not accept!!, so she offered another hotel for the same price, claiming that the second hotel is a 5 star while the first was a 4 star. I was fooled and accepted. When I found out the trick(in minutes) I called back to cancell. Response: "Reservation is already made and you have to pay. The wrong information we gave you has nothing to do with this, you are a lier."

Beware, don't waste your money and time with this company.

I used them once. It took them about 3 days to e-mail me that they could not guarantee the rate they'd advertised for the hotel. I canceled and got a credit on my card.

Apparently, they advertise a room rate the hotel has accepted in the past-- it doesn't mean you'll get it for when you want to stay.

They charge your card right away. If you don't get a confirmation number within a day or so, you know something is wrong.

I have heard from people that use them sucessfully, but it's a bit of a gamble-- no pun intended.

Hi passenger57

I don't really care if it is better or worse, What I care about is freedom of choice. I don't want someone else to choose for me, I would rather have the proper info and decide for myself.

Yes, she accused me of cancelling only because I found a better deal!!

I think this is all irrelevant, just as the dictation corrections. In any bussiness there is an element of trust.If one side tries to decieve the other, that person is a crook.
