[Resolved] eDreams — refund due to system failure
issue ref : [protected]-[protected]
My story starts on Oct 28 2017
On Saturday Oct 28 at 12.30pm, I try to book a ticket from BRU to BKK.
After final details filled in, I come unto payment page. I fill everything in, and system tells me to wait, and please do not renew.
I wait, and after a few minutes, I get a notice that says "something went wrong, please try again with other dates"
So I rebook a ticket immediately after.
Then 5 to 10 minutes later, I get 2 emails, that I booked 2 tickets.
I call e-dreams immediately, and the call center agent says no problem whatsoever. I just need to contact the airline to cancel the ticket. In this case Qatar Airways. I find it strange, since I booked thru edreams, and due to a system failure on their side, I would presume they would do the necessary. But I call Qatar, and tell them what happened. they cancel the first ticket, and tell me I need to contact edreams for the refund, since it was booked thru edreams.
I call edreams back, and they tell me I need to wait 24 to 48 hrs before they can issue a refund. I call them back 2 days later, same reply, I need to wait. I call them back 2 days later, again same reply.
I lose my temper, and I want the issue resolved on the spot, as their system made a mistake. After an more than an hour on the phone, the floormanager at the call center tells me, they will issue a refund, but deduct 300USD, that is the airline policy for this ticket booking class.
I told them over and over that its due to their system failure that I have 2 tickets, so I can not be reponsible, and they should issue full refund.
Now we are 3 weeks later, now edreams claims they will not issue a refund whatsoever because I cannot prove that ticket was canceled at Qatar.
I have called Qatar numerous times, and they confirm that ticket was canceled on Oct 28. But they can not send me any confirmation of this, because it was booked thru edreams. And edreams needs to contact Qatar for this info.
3 weeks after, and myself 700€ lighter, edreams is cheating people, by pretending nothing went wrong, and I need to provide them with info, that only they can obtain from the airline.
I would advise all people booking thru edreams, write down all the names, dates× of the people you ever talked to at edreams, take screenshots in case a problem might arise.
Because edreams is not willing whatsoever to resolve any issue whatsoever.
