Paid in full for round-trip airfare and hotel package through BookIt.com. Due to Covid we had to cancel our trip. They told us we had one year to utilize the credit. When we went to book the trip we found out the company went out of business and it was too late to retract the funds which were already paid from our credit card/bank.
We booked a family vacation for Nov 2020 in February, they took two payments of 1063 from our account on 2/4 and 3/4. They called us in March canceled Our trip and didn’t give us a refund. Told you contact our bank or credit card. Not fair, we are hard working people with 4 children looking to give our children a nice experience and now we are out over $2000.
Of course Booking couldn't have been easier. Very attentive and helpful. Agency canceled trip, closed call centers and did not inform me. I only found out that my accommodations were canceled when I attempted to postpone my trip due to Covid-19. My flight was not canceled so I was left to deal with that. Still no refund so my next step is contacting Consumer affairs and the BBB.
Booked in December for an all inclusive at the Moon Palace for April 2020 for 6 days. Purchase travel insurance recommended by BookIt and that was AIG. Covid hit and our flights were canceled and the Moon Palace closed. I thought, no problem, I have travel insurance! Had to argue with AIG for many, many months and finally got one half of my money and now they tell me I have to get the rest from Bookit, you know the one that folded and is now open again, yes that one! They of course have not responded and I am still waiting for my refund. Who in their right mind would book a vacation thru Bookit, & pay for travel insurance after all if this! Bookit, it is time to settle with people like me so your reputation can be resurrected. Do the right thing and give back the money to all the disappointed people like me that had their trip canceled due to the pandemic. Sincerely, Nina **
You guys cancelled my trip on March 21st and said my bank had to refund me and my bank is saying no they will not!! It has now been 4 months and I have yet to receive my money! At this point you guys are thieves!!!
In January my husband and I planned our 1 year anniversary/honeymoon to Punta Cana. In March Bookit.com gave us no notice and cancelled our trip due to COVID. I understand this has been a challenging time for everyone but we have a $5,000 loan to pay back for this trip and the company is refusing to respond. I finally heard back from our travel insurance company (AIG) after 5 months and they agreed to return $1,151.
We paid $5,700 in the form of a loan and are still responsible for paying that back. I’ve spoken to the bank, to the state senator, to the attorney general, I’ve emailed bookit multiple times with no response. I’ve called them, I’ve called the resort, I’ve called the bank... I’ve called everyone. NO ONE WILL RETURN OUR MONEY. This is ridiculous!! We are not wealthy by any means, we spent $2,000 on our wedding and eloped on the beach so that we could have a nice honeymoon. If this money is not returned we will be paying for the next 2 years for a trip we never received that they won’t let us reschedule. How are they getting are they getting away with this theft?
Don’t know how many times this happens but somehow third party cancelled my reservation. So I purchased flight and room for long Vegas weekend and had no problems with flight until I tried to check in hotel. I was told by BookIt to purchase room for weekend and that I would be refunded. Never received email or difference in price. I will never use book it again....
I made a reservation for a vacation with my family to Cancun. I paid downpayment and made the first payment for the total amount of almost $1000. Before doing the 2and payment (thanks god) they sent me an email telling me that due the Covid 19 my package was cancel. They didn't refund any money. As soon as I read the email I went to the webpage and they were fine. I try the phone and nothing. They disappeared overnight. I have tried to do whatever I can to recover my money and nothing. It appear that there is no law in this country for these kind of thieves, because that's what they are, a bunch of scum bags delinquents. As me, there are a bunch of people in the same situation. If anybody hears anything about please make a contact.
Well I booked a trip for my daughter’s birthday back in January for May to Miami Florida. BookIt canceled my trip in March due to COVID-19. After waiting for a month for my refund it never happened so I contacted my bank in which they gave me a provisional credit. Last week July 5th my bank emails me and tells me that they found that I authorized the transaction. I know that I did but this business bookit.com shut down and did not refund me my money now myself and several other people are out of money. Not to mention I paid on my debit card and these people want money back from me that I cannot give them because this slime ball Bud Finlaw deleted all his account and is the owner of the company that stole from us. How will we get our money back. Are we just at a lost. I’m so frustrated...
So I booked a trip to Mexico back in October 2019. I used Bookit.com. My trip was canceled by bookit in March due to Covid 19. I even call bookit.com and just get an electronic recording. So I went through my credit card company to get a refund which is what I was instructed to do. From the email I received from bookit.com. Well my cc company tells me that we are not entitled to get our money back. Bookit just stole my money and Bank of America did nothing. Now I'm out $4100.00.
I have received a refund.
They cancelled our trip with no notification in March. Discover initially refunded my $1200 but now I receive a letter stating they were unable to settle the matter in my favor. This is absurd!! BookIt has taken thousands of dollars from so many people. Someone needs to help us get our money back!
You guys cancelled our trip, due to covid-19. March 25, you sent an email to us to get with our bank for a full refund. We called the bank every month and nothing was refunded. It's now June 15, still no refund. Please refund us back. So we can continue to do business with you. It would be greatly appreciated.
I booked a trip to Negril on the Bookit.com website. I made three payments utilizing Pay Delay. Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic Bookit cancelled the trip. I have been trying to get a refund since March and it's June 11. I have tried to contact Bookit via telephone and the site. When I called the telephone number it sounded like a robocall that stated they are not at normal operations and then the phone was disconnected. The Bookit.com website has the cancellation letter that they e-mailed me. I filed a claim through my bank which was denied. The bank told me that I would have to dispute the charges with Bookit.com. I am so frustrated all I want is my money back because the trip was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Cannot get money back for a trip that was canceled by Bookit. Resort never got paid, the itinerary shows we were refunded, but we never got the money back. Filed a dispute with the credit card company and they are apparently able to communicate with them to say it's a valid charge, but can't contact customers.
Hi. My name is Ms. Demetrica **. I'm currently staying at the Motel 6 Downtown Memphis TN South Pauline st location. The rooms are nice and clean. I've been staying here for 8 weeks straight now at the rate of $408 a week which is way too high for Motel 6 but hey I don't control the rates. Anyways my complaint is I was told through Bookit that my 10th night would be free and every 10th night stay would be free. Well I've been here 60 days straight again at the rate of $408 a week and I've yet to receive any free nights.
I've consistently emailed the site bookit to no avail. I've also called several times to speak with a rep. No response. Just the automated recording. Checking with the front desk I was told only bookit gives the free nights by the hotel manager so I'm now leaving my complaint. Again it's been 60+ days straight and no one has responded concerning my complimentary 10th night free. I'm due about 6 free nights at this point. Well if anyone cares to respond I'm here if not it's still a nice hotel just not $408 a week nice. Lol???? Blessing to all during this recession. Thank you for your time.
Still haven't received my refund for my canceled trip. Please refund my money. My trip was to take place in May. I've tried to reach out to you guys several times including today. It was unfair for you guys to just shut day and not have anyone for me to contact. Please call me at the number provided. Thank you in advance.
SCAM company!! Cancelled my flights and resort reservations without my consent and then kept 100% of my money without refunding a single cent. Initially, their phones, email, and website were disconnected/shut down and they blamed COVID-19 for their theft. Their cancellation email said to talk to my credit card company about my "options", but they denied my attempts for reimbursement since I didn't dispute the initial charges so I'm out $2100 because Bookit STOLE it! As of 6-3-20, they have the balls to start accepting new reservations and payments again as their booking website and call centers are functioning again. When I called the new call center today, they said they could find no history of my reservation and therefore could not process my refund. I would give Bookit.com -1 stars if I could. Scum of the earth.
Prior to the COVID pandemic, I purchased a vacation package through Bookit.com. One week before our vacation date, bookit.com posted an advisory on their website that all vacations were being canceled and no refunds would be issued. I was instructed to contact my bank to regain funds taken by the company in “pay delay” payments, totaling over $3,000. My bank could not reimburse this amount and opened an investigation on the company. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission and the Attorney Generals office in Florida where the company headquarters is located. No one has resolved this issue. Bookit.com representatives cannot be reached and continues to evade the responsibility of repaying my money.
I researched whether my resort or airline reservations were paid for. Having confirmation numbers for both, I looked into what bookit.com was doing with my money one week before my travel date. My flight was not paid for nor was the resort reservation. Dispute the travel ban due to the pandemic, since no service was provided, bookit.com should give people their money back. Not only is this bad business, it’s theft! I am so disappointed at agencies, designed to protect consumers from things like this, turning a blind eye and slowing a company to get away with this. You owe me money bookit.com! I trusted you with my hard earned money and you took it and ran with it during this difficult time in our nation. If anyone can help, many customers of bookit.com have similar issues with them. This company should be held accountable for this!
I booked my hotel reservation for the month of June .. BookIt send me a email indicating that my hotel booking had been canceled. I already had paid them 4.000 dollars. I tried calling them with no response.. We have to do something. There has to be a way to have them return our hard earned money.
Booked a 20 year anniversary trip to Mexico for 6/23 to 6/28. Due to the pandemic our trip was canceled and the company went out of business with NO WARNING and NO REFUND! I called our airline carrier, Frontier Airlines but since we used pay delay our flight refund went back to Bookit not us!!! How are we going to get our money back. As you can see this is not just me. They took all our hard earned money and took off with it. What can we do to get our money back??? Is ANYONE going to help us??? ANYONE???
Where's my money? I have been waiting on it and well I haven't seen it. So when do you plan on returning my hard earned money that I entrusted you with? Please let me now so I can pay back my credit card.
Paid for a family vacation package to Antigua, and I had already paid $4065 but still owed some money. BookIt cancel and never gave a refund. I used my debit card and my bank won’t refund me bc they say they don’t have charge back rights, but my cousin got her money back from her bank. Wow I’m so P.O. Can someone tell me if they used a debit card and their bank paid them back.
I got AIG and all and spent over $2800 easily! No one will answer now from either party and my bank can't help since I booked through the third party scam that is BOOKIT! I want my money back!! Never again! There needs to be a massive lawsuit. Is that possible???
During the coronavirus BOOKIT went off-line. We have not been able to get any of our $3800.00 back. I have been saving for my 50th birthday and now we have NOTHING!!! They booked through the airline and it said we paid $0. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE,HORRIBLE... The hotel refunded BOOKIT and they are off-line, so no refund for us...
Booked a vacation and while making payments for my vacation sent me an email stating that due to covid 19 they had to cancel my vacation and that there wouldn’t charge my credit card any more. Three days later charged my credit card AGAIN. Sure hope that Bookit refunds my money being that they charged me $1,800 for a vacation I didn’t get. Very disappointed in the way Bookit does business, will not ever use them for future vacations and I go on vacation twice a year.
You are the absolute worst company I've ever dealt with. I can't believe you would steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from your customers. The people you have screwed over deserve their money back. You are completely awful and dishonest.
These people just shut down! Canceled my trip for June. My airfare was refunded back to them! They didn’t pay my hotel bill! Got me for $8500!! Tell me to call my credit card company for a refund then you dispute my claim saying you refunded me. What kind of company is this. I will tell you they are scammers. Leave people stranded. No phone to call. Took hardworking people’s money & ran!! Cowards.
I received an email that my trip had been cancelled and that I should contact my credit card company to see about getting a refund. They said the airline reservation would be cancelled by the airline. When I called the airline they told me that only the travel agency could cancel the reservation. The resort isn't taking calls. The Bookit.com website has some message that they are closed down and their phone numbers disconnected.
I booked a trip with Bookit.com in February. They cancelled my trip due to the “coronavirus” and refuse to refund any of my money! I have emailed and called every number I can find with no luck. Does anyone have suggestions?
Bookit.com has committed a Ponzi scheme fraud against its customers. My family purchased prepaid all inclusive Antigua vacation and prepaid American Airlines tickets totaling $4,200 back in October of 2019. This trip was cancelled by Bookit due to the Corona Virus pandemic and no money was returned. When we contacted the resorts, they never received payment. When we contacted the airlines they stated that Bookit.com had initially paid for the flights, but requested refunds of the flights. Bookit.com has not returned those funds. Seems to me that they were operating in the red for sometime and used the pandemic to take all our money and run. They are a travel agent middleman so there is no way they would be out of business so quickly. We need to make complaints with the Florida Attorney General to start a criminal investigation against this Florida based company.
