My invoice at hotel was issue with a value different of the value a paid originaly. When i mentioned there were no willing from the staff to get it right. All i got was excuses such as "it is commission that expedia takes", "i cannot do anything" etc... I spent go9d time on the phone to get it sorted with expedia. It is shame that the hotel did not take it serious.
