And after this experience, it really reinforce my belief not to take any package tour.
After putting down the deposit for the package, I got a call from the tour agent 2 days later to inform us that the standard room is already sold. We are advised to top up $305 for the deluxe room, which we agreed.
Another day later, another person from the agent called to inform me that the pricing was wrong quoted. The top up should be $500 instead!!! And what pissed me more was the guy's attitude sucks... instead of apologising for their mistake, he told me he's trying to make sure I secure the booking soon by agreeing to the top up amount. I was disgusted with the bad service and I requested for a written quotation instead.
You know what, the fax quotation indeed reached me. The time stamp on the fax read "5.12pm", and it says the quotation is only valid until 5.30pm the same day!!! Can you beat this?
Holiday should be a happy event... who needs holiday if it gives you more grieve more pleasure? So I told them I decided to cancel and ask for the refund. I do not know if this is the industry practice but was told the refund will take 3 weeks!
Seriously I think the whole event is a rip off... and at this point, I simply couldn't be bothered to argue with them anymore!
Cos I need to run off for my baby sister's birthday... this lucky gal is born on Sep 9!
