I booked my yearly flight home to visit my family last week. Earlier that day, Orbitz was down for maintenance/website stuff. I have never had issues with Orbitz and have always received excellent customer service, which is why I refer them to friends and family.
After submitting my purchase I received an error and it said to try again. So, I went through the process again and my card was declined. I checked my bank account and the money was withdrawn with the first transaction.
I called customer service and was told it was a pending transaction and the money would show up in my account again within 3-5 business days. I was given an approval code that I could take to the bank if I needed to.
It's been a week-no funds returned. After spending 2 days at the bank I was advised by the bank I needed to file a complaint with VISA (I used my Visa debit card). They then informed me that it could take 30 days for the refund.
Well, my daughter is graduating 8th grade, will be giving a speech and singing, and my son will be getting his learner's permit-and because of their error I will miss it. The ticket prices have also jumped $300. I am able to leave for one month during the summer to spend with my family. Thank you, Orbitz, for making sure I miss my summer with my children.
