Has anyone on here booked their hotel in Bora Bora through Hotels.com? I just signed up for the Capital One Venture card and if I book through their partner Hotels.com I can earn 10x the points and possibly use that to pay for the airfare ect. I am hesitant to book such a dream vacation through a third party website for this reason:
My husband exceeded his quota at work and we won a free vacation to anywhere in the U.S. We are New Yorkers so we chose Lake Tahoe b/c it was far and we prob wouldn't really go there otherwise. When trying to check in to the hotel, we couldnt get a room b/c the travel agent/booker whoever idk made a mistake and they wouldn't help us because it was booked through expedia or something. They had said if we booked directly with them they could have helps us better. This was all after flying through the middle of the night and then talking to them at 4 am their time.
So, for those of you who used a third party booking site what was your experience, especailly if you used Hotels.com. Also!! do you think if i booked a diamond owb at Intercontinetnal that they would be reluctant to upgrade me to the brando or something if used hotels.com and not them directly?
