Bait 'n Switch

This is a Complaint / Review about

I booked and paid for a Mid-Sized car using and was given a Compact Car instead. No confusion here folks, the car make and model I was given "was" categorized as a Compact Car on their website for the specific location of pick-up.

After contacting Hotwire, they refuse to rectify the situation. Instead, they will have their research department look into the situation within 10-14 days.

In the meantime, I am stuck with the car.

I filed a formal complain with the BBB so it sticks to their business record. Best thing you can do. That is what they get for being so blatantly unethical and not doing the right thing.

Classic bait 'n switch. They are not willing be to held accountable. Utterly shameful.

They told me if I disputed the charge with my credit card company that they would ban me from future use of their services. That is their policy.

Apparently, they think they have card blanche to defraud you.

Fradulent practices, non-accountability and retribution for attempting to resolve through 3rd party. What does that tell you?
