Getaroom — internet hotel booking service
Booked a room a week in advance, then change of plans and needed to cancel hours later - same day.
Their website looks like a hotels, they charged me full price for the Hotel room plus their service fees which were 50% of the Hotel room!!
When I wanted to cancel, stated they have a no cancellation policy - read the fine print! - WHERE did it say that?
Apparently this is the Hotel policy, called the Hotel - it isn't their policy and they can't do anything! No principles!
So I reversed my cancellation as I decided to use the room-nope can't room is cancelled.
No principles, shoddy, careless and fraudulent - stay away!

Getaroom Customer Care's Response, Oct 09, 2019
Thank you for contacting Getaroom.com and bringing your concerns to our attention. While we strive to provide exceptional customer service to all our customers, we know things can happen that prevent us from achieving this objective. If we have failed to meet your expectations, we appreciate you letting us know, so we can continue to improve our services.
By securing this reservation online, you had to agree to the terms and conditions of this booking prior to submitting payment. In addition, upon completion of your booking, an electronic copy of your itinerary was sent via email to the following address ([protected]@msn.com) that you provided.
All prepaid reservations that are posted on our website are fully visible along with the subtotal, tax recovery charges and service fees. In addition, the cancellation policy was fully disclosed at the time of booking and was agreed to by you at the time of purchase.
We were unable to reinstate your reservation, our system does not have the capability to process changes/additions and certainly we are unable to reinstate a canceled reservation.
However, in an effort to resolve her concerns and as a gesture, we issued a refund in the amount of ($723.30) back to the original form of payment on Oct 6th.
Again, we regret any inconvenience or frustration that this experience has caused and hope you find this gesture to be sincere and in good faith.
