Vacations Made Easy Island Lake Illinois Review

My husband and I contacted Vacations Made Easy for help finding a whirlpool suite for a romantic weekend getaway. We booked the room with Ashley over the phone via the number posted on their website. She said she would charge a $7 convenience fee for an order over the phone, instead of online. We stated we would just hang up and order through the website to avoid the fee, at which time she offered to waive the convenience fee. nShe booked the room for us, and we were excited about our weekend plans. We decided to call the hotel directly to find out the check in time. The person who worked the front desk at the hotel informed us that they did not even have ANY whirlpool suites in their entire hotel. We immediately called Vacations Made Easy to cancel the reservation. We were told there were no refunds, and that all we could have was a voucher for a future purchase. We did not want a voucher, as it was obvious they do not know what they are doing over there, and didn’t need the hassle. nWe were told to call back to talk to a supervisor (Tori), because IF we did get a refund, she was the only one able to authorize that. The remainder of our weekend was spent leaving message after message for Tori, who never once returned our phone calls. nConcerned, I decided to contact the hotel directly to cancel our reservation, as I did not want to be charged for not showing up. The person at the hotel (Comfort Inns) was VERY nice and understanding of our situation. She cancelled our reservation and gave me a confirmation number stating that the credit card (submitted by Vacations Made Easy) would not be charged anything, due to the misunderstanding. She suggested we contact Vacations Made Easy and explain this to them, and perhaps they would be more willing to give us a refund. nMultiple phone calls to Vacations Made Easy later, with no returned call, we decided to stop calling and just dispute the charge with our credit card company. In fact, at one point, when we called them, the phone would ring once and automatically disconnect. We were no longer able to get through using that phone, and had to start calling with a different phone, just to get a representative who would tell us that Tori was “on another call”” or “”not in””

and we should leave a message. nFinally

two days AFTER our reservation date had passed

Tori called us back. (We had not had a chance to contact our credit card company yet

so we heard her out.) She stated that since we did not show up for our reservation
