Travelguru — Overcharged by Travelguru

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a very frequent traveller, around 15 - 20 days in a month I am on the move. For quite some time I am doing my hotel & flight bookings through Travelguru. The most recent one is my Mumbai booking in Hotel Orritel West. The booking ID is TGU[protected]. The amount debited from my credit card for booking in this hotel is Rs 12903/- . However at the time of checking out the hotel staff issued me a invoice of Rs 11,220/- & said that since I have been overcharged by Rs 1683/- ,I could ask Travelguru for the refund or adjustment in future bookings. But the Travelgurus customer care person Mr. Ross said that it is not possible to refund as they have not overcharged.

I sincerely do not have the time to fight over this issue as I remain very busy . However , I want to warn people to be careful when dealing with Travelguru. Indeed , I am travelling to Dubai in January 08 for a medical exhibition in which I thought that if the package siuts me then I could also book that package through Travelguru .But now this is not possible.

Thanks ,

Travelguru — Wrong info at site and worst customer service

I have used TravelGuru to search for hotels and booked "The Kormangala Residency" hotel for 3 nights. However, after going to the hotel, it is apparant that the hotel is just a rat hole. Even for the basic things you would expect to be part of hotel room is not there. The facilities that TravelGuru website says that they are available, are not there at all (internet, breakfast). I had to find another hotel and move after 1 day. Travelguru refused to reimburse the days I had not stayed in the hotels, on top of this, I had to go through lots of frustration in terms of explaining/follow up with the TravelGuru.

Avoid booking through TravelGuru for hotels, unless you know about the hotel yourself, or from your friends. Do not believe in the reviews what is there in the Travelguru site!

Travelguru — Travel Guru robbed me

We were on three week holiday in Tamil Nadu from the USA, while in Madurai, I logged online to to make reservations for the evening of 1 January, 2012 at the Hotel Queen’s Palace in
Ramaswaram. When we arrived, they sent us away rudely, saying they didn’t take online reservations, and sent us to a seedy little hotel with a similar name, where there were no workers at all (it seemed abandoned). The first hotel was the place pictured on TravelGuru, so we were obviously victims of a scam. TravelGuru kept our reservation money anyway, and repeated emails are ignored. Fortunately, our driver saw how frightened we were, stranded in an alien town, and found us an adequate replacement hotel, but the experience was terrible, the worst we’ve had traveling in the Internet Age.
Avoid TravelGuru and any organization they are associated with.

Although they wouldn’t respond to direct emails, they emailed us after I posted this complaint on I’m new to this website, but very impressed. The first email apologized for the inconvenience, promised an investigation and refund, and requested that I remove this complaint, edit the review. We thanked them and promised to amend the review once we got our refund. They replied by insisting that we FIRST remove our critical posting here, as "too many people will read it," before they would be able to take care of our refund! The audacity staggers the imagination! Talk about adding insult to injury, they didn’t just steal my money, now they have made it clear, they think I’m stupid! No, because fool me once, shame on you..., as they say. Don’t let them fool you, TravelGuru is robbery on the Information Superhighway.
