1) Attention aux prix d appel de Hotelsclick

qui peut être 50% moins cher que la concurrence mais avec résa en demande seulement (c est-à-dire en attente). On commande avec sa carte, mais, comme par hasard, l hôtel n a pas de dispo au prix bradé indiqué. Hôtelclick vous propose alors d autres hôtels à des prix inférieurs ou supérieurs et vous êtes + ou – obligé d acheter car, si vous vous désistez, je ne vois pas très bien, sur leur site, comment fonctionne la procédure de remboursement. Je me demande si c est bien légal commercialement.

2° défaut. si vous commandez 2-3 semaines avant la prestation, la commande est débitée 5 jours ou + avant l arrivée à l hôtel, ce qui peut être gênant, si un pb survient entre temps, car là encore, la procédure de remboursement par Hôtelclick n est pas évidente (je ne l ai pas expérimentée) et comporte au minimum une retenue de 50 €uros à titre de tax administrative.

3° particularité HotelClick est une société italienne qui n a pas encore acquis une grande notoriété (malgré sa présence sur TripAdvisor)

Un conseil, NE RESERVEZ JAMAIS PAR HOTELSCLICK. J ai effectué comme à mon habitude une réservation d hotel par l intermédiaire de Tripadvisor. Hôtelsclick était le moins cher des sites de réservation et comme il était référencéur par Tripadvisor, je ne me suis pas méfiée et suis passée par eux. La réservation date du 3 juillet. J ai été débitée le jour même de 388€ comme convenu. Par contre, ma demande est à ce jour (le 11 juillet) toujours en attente de confirmation. J ai appelé l hotel qui m a confirmé qu il y avait de la disponibilité aux dates que j avais sélectionnées. Alors pourquoi n ai je toujours pas de confirmation. J ai tenté de joindre le service clients. toujours sur répondeur et ils ne répondent pas non plus aux mails. Il vaut mieux dépenser quelques euros de plus et passer par un site beaucoup plus sérieux.

Zafira not starting, ignition goes on, but no clicks from starter FIXED

Welcome to the MSE Forums

Zafira not starting, ignition goes on, but no clicks from starter FIXED 14th Jul 12 at 5:23 PM

Wife’s Zafira is not starting again.
The last 2 times this happened it was the starter, replaced and all was OK.

The difference between the last 2 times and this time is that the solenoid on the starter is not clicking (still clicking before)
And when I took the starter off it was still free. (was jammed before)

Also checked the old starter at the 2 live connections while off the car.
1) starter starts to spin OK
2) the solenoid clicks OK

Tried a new starter anyway but same symptoms.

The other symptoms is that the central locking is sluggish, and feels like the battery is quite low – however same symptoms as when the starter did go previously.
When trying to start all the dashboard lights go out. (or is that normal)

I have checked the earth wire from the starter to the battery earth and no resistance – so OK here
The battery was tested with Gunson’s Start check battery tester and was 75-100% so seems OK here too.
Battery has been smart charged anyway just in case.

It would appear that the solenoid is not getting power to get the starter spinning.

Any mechanics here that know what to check now, or what the likely cause is ?

Glad you like it!

If your dash lights are going out and theres barely enough juice to activate the central locking, while I’d check all major connections, I’d bet the battery is just about to give up the ghost.
Modern batteries appear to be all or nothing and can go off very suddenly.
Check the voltage across the battery terminals and if its less than 10.5 – 11 volts, it’s very tired. Get it started with a jump, check across the terminals again and make sure it’s at least 13v with the engine running, ideally around 14-14.5 volts to make sure the alternator is fine. Anything higher is just as much a problem too!

Glad you like it!

Users saying Thanks (1)

It ended up being the battery – a shorted cell.

What threw me was that it initially was showing OK.
After charging it was not showing OK and 10.6 volts
I checked it an hour later to confirm readings and checked out OK with around 12.5 volts – so intermittent readings.

So wasted my time and effort changing the starter motor twice, and that’s not easy to do on a Zafira.

Glad you like it!

Sorry!

    Thread: GBM – end stage question

    Re: GBM – end stage question

    Dear Imli, sorry to know what you are going through. As I understand, that is the way this disease progresses. The patient switches to coma later and then passes away in sleep. When death is close, breathing pattern changes and the color of urine goes darker due to lack of sufficient oxygen in the body. Death is usually painless.

    My mother is in the end stages of GBM. She is currently completely bedridden, cannot talk or comprehend and sleeps all the time. When she does open her eyes, her gaze is unfocussed and glazed. Her vitals are strong, and she is being fed via a tube. Has a catheter- Urine and stools normal. I know this is progression of the disease, but I am still at a loss and its hard to see a loved one deteriorate. We were told that the symptoms in her case were due to edema and swelling post Gamma knife, may not be the tumor. This has been going on for 5 weeks now.How long can this go on? I know a lot of you have lost loved ones to the disease, and am hoping your collective response can give me a better picture on how much more time she has. She is diisplaying symptoms ( of the timeline chart on brain hospice) of 1-2 weeks for over 1 month now.

    An update on the situation and a little confused. Mom had been sleeping and opening her eyes for a few minutes at most, occasionally-when she was physically moved. This has been the situation for approx 6 weeks. No response to any other stimuli, no recognition or cognition. Last week she had low grade temperature for a few days and still feels warm occasionaly. Since the last 3 days however, her eyes are open and gazing at the ceiling for hours. Her breathing sounds like she is snoring lightly.Her last MRI was in Nov ’09 which showed lots of Edema, post Cyber knife ( Aug 2009). CT in Dec ’09-showed heavy midline shift, when she became paralysed. bedridden and non-cognizant after which she was given steroids that only marginally helped her.
    I’m not sure what to make of this, in that she has gone from sleeping continuosly, to opening her eyes and gazing for hours. Is this a sign of improvement? Should I push for another MRI?

    Hi Imli. I don’t know what it means that your mother now has her eye open for a long time but still not responding to others. Does she track? That is, if you put your finger in front of her eyes and move it, do her eyes follow your finger? If not, she is probably not really seeing anything just sleeping with her eyes opened. She needs to blink her eyes or they will dry. In hospitals, some times they go so far as to tap eyes closed when someone sleeps with their eyes open so that they do not dry.

    In terms of getting an MRI. for sure you need to make her doctor aware of this change and let him/her advise you on what needs to be done.

    New User Join Date Jan 2010 Posts 14

    Brainman- No, she does not track. Keeps Gazing and but does blink on her own though. She has been off steroids for approx a month now as well.

    response to your queries

    Sorry imli, as far as my experience with this disease goes, it appears that the disease is spreading within the brain and is taking away your mom slowly. I am not sure if scans can reveal anything since growth and spreading could be at microscopic level. A doctor would be able to advise you better. Sorry again, it is painful to observe the patient at this stage.

    Re: response to your queries

    signs of increasing body temperature are also common, as I understand. I am not sure how that connects with the disease.

    Aim

    Hospice at Home aims to enable patients with cancer or other advanced illness to be cared for at home, and to die at home if that is their preference. Care may be provided to prevent admission to an inpatient unit, for respite or crisis management, or for longer periods of time. Care is intended to be of the highest possible standard so as to enhance the quality of life of patients, carers and families.

    Philosophy

    Hospice at Home is an integral component of palliative home care, bringing the skills, ethos and practical care associated with Hospice into the home environment and putting the patient and those who matter to them at the centre of care. Palliative home care forms a spectrum from advisory and educational roles to hands-on care, in response to the changing needs of the patient and carers.

    Applying for multiple Amex cards within a short period? #credit #card #reviews,

    Applying for multiple Amex cards within a short period?

    I’m a young small business owner (early 20s). I’ve been with American Express since 2008. I originally got added to my father’s amex account. He has a Costco Platinum card. A little over a year ago, I picked up the zync card on my own account.

    Last year I spent

    34k on my card and have had no late/missed payments and have a decent credit history. Since my history is young, I only have a 767 faco score. (I utilize credit secure through American Express.)

    My gross income is

    100k and I have about 25k of liquid assets (checking + retirement accounts)

    I really want to get accepted for the Platinum card, as I’m going to be a frequent flyer and would appreciate the benefits of the card.

    I called American Express to apply over the phone, but I was a bit weary of applying for the Platinum card because of my limited credit history.

    I chose to apply for the Gold Premier rewards out of safety (foolish mistake). I managed to get my application approved and the card is being shipped out.

    Would my circumstances yield a platinum card approval?

    If I don’t activate the gold card, will I be able to apply for a platinum? Would American Express do a second hard credit pull with the second application?

    Should I keep the Gold Card for 13 months and attempt an upgrade?

    I do not mind the annual fee difference, as the marginal benefits outweigh the marginal costs.

    Thanks for all your help.

    You could always call them and ask. Since you are already a member, AmEx can pull credit reports on you all they want and it doesn’t count as a hard inquiry. Usually you have to have the Gold Card for awhile to establish a history with them. The worst they could do is say no, you have to wait. When you upgrade they apply what you have already paid in fees toward the new card.

    That sounds like a great idea I would say yes. you never know you might just end up liking the gold rewards better than the platinum.

    I would if I were you.

    I applied for 3 cards in two days and all was approved. I also already had a clear card totaling four applications in about six months.

    This move is highly UN-RECOMMENDED. My application for platinum was for 50 000 Membership Rewards points for new Platinum card signup, transferred 50 k to Delta and I got 30% 15K Point certificate back that was credited back to my account. For 75000 Miles it was worth the hard pull but again I already have all the credit I need and don’t plan on applying for anything for at least two years.

    My take is you stay gold, but you know what is best for you.

    I agree with ooxs, I would wait. I received 50,000 points when I signed up. Of course, they didn’t show up like they were supposed to, so I called. I was amazed at how much nicer they are when you call Platinum CS versus Gold. I forwarded the email and immediately I received an apology. 50k miles in rewards is a very nice incentive. When AE decides you fit the profile, your account will flag the marketing department to send you an invitation in the postal mail. At that point, if you wait until the next invitation, you are more likely to get bonus points for accepting it. My first invitation had no points attached to it.

    I ve used hotelsclick.com and never had a problem. I booked a quad room in VAN DER VALK HOTEL SCHIPHOL A4 – Amsterdam for less than £200 for 3 nights including breakfast and that was for all of us. £50 each for 3 nights. I was a bit nervous at booking as they say if it s too good to be true, it probably is and it was down to me to get it right. What a great decision I made. I received a confirmation email and it didn t occur to me that anything would go wrong and it didn t. The place was amazing. They state that a continental breakfast was included however it was like a banquet, you couldn t want for anything, including smoked salmon. and it wasn t even Christmas. The hotel put on a courtesy coach to go back and forth to the Airport to get the train into the heart of Amsterdam. I can t praise this hotel enough however as I said, I booked it through hotelsclick.com . There is a phone number and email address on their site so I don t know why the other poster had a problem. However, I have noticed that there is a hotelclick.com (no s ) which is also a sponsered link to this site. So very confusing! I ve looked at both sites and the latter uses 32 reservation websites. Therefore you are not booking with them.

    Smartlondonla, just checked booking.com for 25 – 28 Nov at the above hotel I stayed in, £339.54 for a Quadruple Room

    Prices are per room for 3 nights.

    Included in room price: 6 % VAT.

    Not included in room price: 6 % city tax. • FREE cancellation

    Meals: Buffet breakfast costs EUR 15 per person per night. Buffet breakfast costs EUR 7.50 per night per child under 12 years.

    Taxes: 6 % city tax is excluded.

    So add £50+ per night for 4 for breakfast, £150 that s £489.54 then add 6% city tax. Ouch, that works out expensive for FREE cancellation. Take out insurance, it s cheaper!

    They state on their site – •Best Price Guarantee. Found your room online at a lower price? We ll match it. Bet they are kept busy

    Now, Hotesclick.com – 25 – 28 Nov for a quad room, £321.75 including all taxes and breakfast. Now that s uncomplicated, no add ons.

    Hampshire 127 forum posts

    For one, mine was not a late booking. Yes they get good prices but isn t that we want. I ve read your link however the poster is not complaining about hotelsclick.com. They booked the accommodation in good faith and of course they are going to take payment. The fact that the hotel was overbooked wasn t down to them, they have their allocation and the fact that the hotel was overbooked is not their fault, it was down to the Midland Hotel for overbooking.

    Quote from poster:-

    Since this was the evening of the Manchester United v. Roma and the World Swimming Championships I am sure that the hotel could ask more for our room than we had paid! Emails to the hotel were met with curt and unhelpful replies. HotelsClick eventually found us a room at The Macdonald Manchester Hotel where we were very well looked after. I would warn other travellers to beware since bookings not made directly with The Midland Hotel may not be honoured .

    Nowhere does the poster state that it was down to hotelsclick.com . However, they looked after them which is more can be said for the hotel staff.

    Hardly a negative response so I don t see your point.

    Edited: Nov 15, 2011, 2:37 PM

    Hampshire 127 forum posts

    Your comments iggyfitz

    Although the reviewer blames the Midland Hotel, it seems far more likely that Hotelsclick had not confirmed the booking .

    That s heresay on your part and not constructive being that you are obviously biased for some reason. Mine was confirmed, booked and honoured.

    Just a parting shot iggyfitz have you been affected by hotelsclick.com ?

    If not, you have no room to comment.

    No, yours was not a late booking but that does not mean that Hotelsclick did not book it or confirm the booking with the hotel until much later when the discounted rates kicked in. Exactly when (or if) a discounted rate kicks in will depend on the hotel, but some booking companies trust to luck that they will. If the lower rates turn out not to be available all they have to do is tell their customers that the hotel overbooked.

    The reviewer referred to only knows what Hotelsclick told them. If the hotel had not received a confirmed booking from Hotelsclick and the hotel was full, there is nothing much they could do. Hotelsclick then comes to the rescue with another hotel.

    My comments are based on some of the threads on this site about Hotelsclick. It s strange that this seems to happen so much more often with this company than with others.

    Replacing the final stage unit # #replacing #the #final #stage #unit/blower #motor


    #

    Does your A/C-heater blower seem like it’s possessed? Does it quit working for no apparent reason, then come on again just as mysteriously? Does it run only at one speed no matter what the controls say? Does it keep running even when the car is off and the key is out of the ignition? Your problem is most likely a faulty final stage unit.

    Based on what I’ve seen here and elsewhere, this is a chronic problem with the E39, but fortunately it’s a relatively cheap and easy fix. There’s a good DIY here. but since questions about it get posted here with regular frequency, I figured it would be a good idea to post one here too. Some of the photos in this post are very large because it’s very helpful to see the details if you have no idea what’s going on here.

    BMW calls this thing the “final stage unit;” the parts guys call it a “blower motor resistor.” I’m not sure what the reason for the different terminology is, but it’s the same part. The PNs have changed a couple of times over the years, but as of the date of this posting, what you want is PN 64 11 6 923 204 and there’s a diagram of the system here. As far as I can tell, the same part is used in all E39 models (but you may want to confirm this). Bavarian Autosport has them for about $70, but they’re unfortunately available a lot of places, including the parts counter of your local dealership (I say “unfortunately” because it’s a reflection of how often this thing fails).

    For some reason, dealer service departments are notorious for not being able to recognize this issue, and may charge you for hundreds or thousands of dollars of unnecessary repairs without solving the problem. If you don’t feel confident doing this yourself (i.e. you’re the sort of person who is more likely to take an eye out with a screwdriver than a screw), at least bring them this information. Done properly, this is a 15-minute,

    This is what you’re replacing:

    The silver part of it is a heat sink. I’m not an electrical engineer, but I believe this thing allows the blower controls to change the speed of the blower by altering the current that passes through it. Inside is a bundle of resistors, and by sending the current through a different combination of leads, it creates the proper current to operate the blower at a desired speed. But resistors generate heat (thus the need for a heat sink), and over time, I suspect the constant heat up-cool down cycle degrades the resistors until they no longer produce the right current, and the controller can no longer send the right signals to the blower. Thus, the blower starts acting strangely despite what the controls are doing.

    Now, I’ve read a lot of horror stories about how difficult this replacement can be, but I didn’t find it that way at all. This is an extremely simple operation that took me less than 10 minutes. The hardest part was getting myself into a position where I could get at the faulty FSU.

    All you need here is a Phillips screwdriver, a flashlight (the one in your glovebox will work fine) and understanding that you’re working with electrical components, not mechanical ones. That means being mindful of how much force you’re using. Nothing in this operation requires any great effort, so if you find yourself needing force things, you’re doing something wrong.

    The FSU is behind the dash in the passenger side footwell. You’ll find it easier to work if you pull out the cover under the glovebox. It’s not secured by anything, so just yank it out. The FSU is behind a fabric covered plastic panel on the left side:

    You want to unscrew the screw (red circle), then slide the panel backward (see arrow), not out. It’s also held in place by two metal clips that attach to the frame behind it:

    Once you’ve got the panel out, lay on your back and look up at the space you’ve just exposed. The FSU is inside there.

    Inside the space, you’ll see a plug with 5 colored wires coming out of it. The FSU is the thing the plug is connected to, so you’ve got to get the plug out. The plug is held in place by two clips on the side, and you need to squeeze the clips to free it.

    You may find the plug a bit difficult to get out; if so, just wiggle it back and forth until it comes free. Don’t yank it out–you may break one of the wires loose, in which case you’ve just bought yourself an expensive and embarrassing trip to the dealer.

    The FSU is itself held in place by another clip at the bottom. You need to push this clip down at the same time you’re pulling the FSU out.

    Again, if you’re doing it right, you should not need to force anything. Once free of the clip, the FSU should slide out easily.

    You may find all of this easier if you lay on your back in the footwell to get your bearings, then sit up straight, reach under the dash, and do it “by feel.”

    Now, surprise, surprise, the part you’ve just removed won’t resemble the new one exactly, since as I mentioned, the PNs have changed a couple of times:

    Hmm, could this be because the original version was defective?

    Now just slide the new one in the spot the old one came out of. It should slide into place with a “snap” as the clip engages it.

    New FSU in place. Note orientation–it will only go in one way. If you’re having trouble getting it in, you’ve probably got it rotated 90 or 180 degrees out of alignment.

    Replace the plug, then slide the panel back in the way it came out. Be sure to get both clips into their respective slots, or it will hang loose. Replace the screw.

    If you’ve done everything right, your blower should operate normally now. If it’s not, go back in and check the connections. If everything looks right but it still doesn’t work, you may have other problems.

    Thank’s for the instructions, my wife has a 2003 530i with 54K miles and her blower stopped working entirely. Here’s a little story.

    The A/C stopped blowing air and I hadn’t gotten the BMW manual for it yet so I took it in to the dealership and I figured it would probably just be a simple electrical relay .
    They called my wife back telling her ;

    1) $440 to fix the blower,
    2) The A/C wasn’t as cold as it should be and they needed to replace the dryer – $790
    3) The plastic components (bushings) of her suspension were cracking and they could fail if she hit a pothole – $825
    4) Her fuel filter needed to be replaces – $325
    5) They recommended a fuel injector cleaning – $350
    6) Her tires were feathering and she needed a 4 wheel alignment – $350

    I went online and found your instructions on how to replace the blower relay. It took 15 minutes to replace and cost $100 for the part. Everything works fine and all the other items were BS not to mention 2 to 3 times what they should be charging for the services.

    For once crime didn’t pay.

    Oh yeah I forgot, they charged her $135 to tell her how they were going to rip her off. I ordered the manuals yesterday.

    Thanks for the great post! I was amazed at the detailed instructions on replacing the FSU.

    Thanks a million. Saved me a fortune. I hate to think what the stealership would have charged me. Regards UK member.

    Thank you. Saved me from replacing the climate control unit unnessarily (Had a similar problem on my E36 M3 that was the unit). After reading your description, I replaced the unit in under 15 mins with no fuss or drama. It really was nice knowing the details without having to go “diving” under the dash in 90 degree weather.

    Just a quick word about the Brain Hospice timeline

    So, I’ve recommended the brainhospice dot com symptom timeline as a reference point to others in the past. I’m not finding it very accurate as we wind down.

    At this time it is about six weeks since my sister fulfilled the timeline’s descriptors for 2 to 5 days left, and for roughly two weeks she’s fulfilled the descriptors for just hours .

    I knew the top of that timeline was kind of iffy but now I’m finding the bottom is too.

    Thank you all for your good thoughts and kind wishes. I send ’em back atcha.

    Sib we are going through the same thing here. I’ve been searching for a better lung cancer death timeline. Jody

    May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favour. Born 1960. Diagnosed 4/2011 with one tumor, LUL, NSCLC. Tumor size 1.1 inches. Thoracic surgery 6/1/2011. No action taken. Eight weeks of radiation and chemo. Carbo and Taxol. Follow up with four rounds of Carbo and Alimta.
    December 2011 CT scan shows all clear.
    April 2012 CT scan shows all clear. July 2012 had several x-rays taken at the chiropractor for shoulder pain. Took them to the onc and nothing suspicious noted. See them again in Oct.
    October didn’t work out. Pain in the left shoulder continued to worsen and lymph nodes in the supraclavical swelled so I called the onc and they bumped the regular scan up to September 19 and we went for the results on the 24th. The tumor is back and the spread is extensive. Option 1: Try targeting chemos that may work and then on to clinical trials. These would give me about a year or so if the cancer responds. Option 2: Do no treatment and let nature take its course. This will give me six months give or take. As good as I feel right now, I�m going for door #2 and will continue to live well and enjoy myself until I don�t. I�ll keep you posted. Live it up everyone!

    7 months into hospice and palliative care. It has been a very good relationship with the organization as a whole with a minor glitch. April 2013 spent the night at hospice facility, PICC line inserted for morphine drip. I said I wouldn�t but, had a hospital bed delivered. Started 10 rounds of palliative radiation to shrink the neck tumor. Busy month for me!

    I’ve taken a couple of nasty falls this last week. (first of mid-May) Right on the cancer shoulder. So I have a life alert necklace on me now. I wish I could get my hands on a small scooter!

    There is another node swelling on the other side of my neck. Still small.

    I ve used hotelsclick.com and never had a problem. I booked a quad room in VAN DER VALK HOTEL SCHIPHOL A4 – Amsterdam for less than £200 for 3 nights including breakfast and that was for all of us. £50 each for 3 nights. I was a bit nervous at booking as they say if it s too good to be true, it probably is and it was down to me to get it right. What a great decision I made. I received a confirmation email and it didn t occur to me that anything would go wrong and it didn t. The place was amazing. They state that a continental breakfast was included however it was like a banquet, you couldn t want for anything, including smoked salmon. and it wasn t even Christmas. The hotel put on a courtesy coach to go back and forth to the Airport to get the train into the heart of Amsterdam. I can t praise this hotel enough however as I said, I booked it through hotelsclick.com . There is a phone number and email address on their site so I don t know why the other poster had a problem. However, I have noticed that there is a hotelclick.com (no s ) which is also a sponsered link to this site. So very confusing! I ve looked at both sites and the latter uses 32 reservation websites. Therefore you are not booking with them.

    Smartlondonla, just checked booking.com for 25 – 28 Nov at the above hotel I stayed in, £339.54 for a Quadruple Room

    Prices are per room for 3 nights.

    Included in room price: 6 % VAT.

    Not included in room price: 6 % city tax. • FREE cancellation

    Meals: Buffet breakfast costs EUR 15 per person per night. Buffet breakfast costs EUR 7.50 per night per child under 12 years.

    Taxes: 6 % city tax is excluded.

    So add £50+ per night for 4 for breakfast, £150 that s £489.54 then add 6% city tax. Ouch, that works out expensive for FREE cancellation. Take out insurance, it s cheaper!

    They state on their site – •Best Price Guarantee. Found your room online at a lower price? We ll match it. Bet they are kept busy

    Now, Hotesclick.com – 25 – 28 Nov for a quad room, £321.75 including all taxes and breakfast. Now that s uncomplicated, no add ons.

    Hampshire 127 forum posts

    For one, mine was not a late booking. Yes they get good prices but isn t that we want. I ve read your link however the poster is not complaining about hotelsclick.com. They booked the accommodation in good faith and of course they are going to take payment. The fact that the hotel was overbooked wasn t down to them, they have their allocation and the fact that the hotel was overbooked is not their fault, it was down to the Midland Hotel for overbooking.

    Quote from poster:-

    Since this was the evening of the Manchester United v. Roma and the World Swimming Championships I am sure that the hotel could ask more for our room than we had paid! Emails to the hotel were met with curt and unhelpful replies. HotelsClick eventually found us a room at The Macdonald Manchester Hotel where we were very well looked after. I would warn other travellers to beware since bookings not made directly with The Midland Hotel may not be honoured .

    Nowhere does the poster state that it was down to hotelsclick.com . However, they looked after them which is more can be said for the hotel staff.

    Hardly a negative response so I don t see your point.

    Your comments iggyfitz

    Although the reviewer blames the Midland Hotel, it seems far more likely that Hotelsclick had not confirmed the booking .

    That s heresay on your part and not constructive being that you are obviously biased for some reason. Mine was confirmed, booked and honoured.

    Just a parting shot iggyfitz have you been affected by hotelsclick.com ?

    If not, you have no room to comment.

    No, yours was not a late booking but that does not mean that Hotelsclick did not book it or confirm the booking with the hotel until much later when the discounted rates kicked in. Exactly when (or if) a discounted rate kicks in will depend on the hotel, but some booking companies trust to luck that they will. If the lower rates turn out not to be available all they have to do is tell their customers that the hotel overbooked.

    The reviewer referred to only knows what Hotelsclick told them. If the hotel had not received a confirmed booking from Hotelsclick and the hotel was full, there is nothing much they could do. Hotelsclick then comes to the rescue with another hotel.

    My comments are based on some of the threads on this site about Hotelsclick. It s strange that this seems to happen so much more often with this company than with others.

    1) Attention aux prix d appel de Hotelsclick

    qui peut être 50% moins cher que la concurrence mais avec résa en demande seulement (c est-à-dire en attente). On commande avec sa carte, mais, comme par hasard, l hôtel n a pas de dispo au prix bradé indiqué. Hôtelclick vous propose alors d autres hôtels à des prix inférieurs ou supérieurs et vous êtes + ou – obligé d acheter car, si vous vous désistez, je ne vois pas très bien, sur leur site, comment fonctionne la procédure de remboursement. Je me demande si c est bien légal commercialement.

    2° défaut. si vous commandez 2-3 semaines avant la prestation, la commande est débitée 5 jours ou + avant l arrivée à l hôtel, ce qui peut être gênant, si un pb survient entre temps, car là encore, la procédure de remboursement par Hôtelclick n est pas évidente (je ne l ai pas expérimentée) et comporte au minimum une retenue de 50 €uros à titre de tax administrative.

    3° particularité HotelClick est une société italienne qui n a pas encore acquis une grande notoriété (malgré sa présence sur TripAdvisor)

    Un conseil, NE RESERVEZ JAMAIS PAR HOTELSCLICK. J ai effectué comme à mon habitude une réservation d hotel par l intermédiaire de Tripadvisor. Hôtelsclick était le moins cher des sites de réservation et comme il était référencéur par Tripadvisor, je ne me suis pas méfiée et suis passée par eux. La réservation date du 3 juillet. J ai été débitée le jour même de 388€ comme convenu. Par contre, ma demande est à ce jour (le 11 juillet) toujours en attente de confirmation. J ai appelé l hotel qui m a confirmé qu il y avait de la disponibilité aux dates que j avais sélectionnées. Alors pourquoi n ai je toujours pas de confirmation. J ai tenté de joindre le service clients. toujours sur répondeur et ils ne répondent pas non plus aux mails. Il vaut mieux dépenser quelques euros de plus et passer par un site beaucoup plus sérieux.
