We were given a Travel Pony credit to use, so that we could review their service and tell you about it.
My niece was getting married last month, so I booked a hotel for my family and my parents. Going to the Madison, Wi, area at that time seemed to be a task. Apparently there was a convention in town and hotel rooms were filling up fast! I searched TravelPony as well as a few competitor sites to get a feel for the discounts available. The first thing I noticed was that TravelPony seems to have better prices. However, they don’t have very many hotels in their listings. This may have been because of the onslaught of visitors expected, but the other sites did list many more rooms at lower prices. My choices on TravelPony were one very basic hotel or one VERY upscale hotel. I was hoping to spend under $100 a night, so the upscale hotel (at $300/night) was out of the question. I settled for the basic hotel, figuring we’d only be there two nights – the night before for the rehearsal and groom’s dinner, and the night of the wedding and reception. I put in my dates, went back and added another room and booked. I realized when I received my confirmation email that it only had booked the first night! In a small panic, I went back to book the second night and it was now sold out. Disappointed and a little confused, I tried calling TravelPony. Finding the phone number was challenging. Instead, I called the hotel directly and asked them if they saw my booking for both nights. They did not see two nights, but they did see two reservations for two rooms for the first night. Now in a slightly larger panic, I called TravelPony. They confirmed that indeed I had only one reservation and only the first night, and that the hotel was booked. Solid. I didn’t want to “move” to another hotel, and this hotel was not refundable. TravelPony informed me that there was nothing they could do at that point. I called the hotel back, and they said they did have more rooms but since TravelPony only resources a certain amount of rooms, they wouldn’t know that. I booked the second night directly.
To see what happened, I went back through the booking process on TravelPony. When I’d selected a second room, my dates changed back to just one night. I didn’t notice that when I initially booked, so it was indeed my fault. But still, a little nerve wracking that it changes like that.
So, in summary, I recommend TravelPony as a resource for what might be a better price on a hotel room – especially with the free $35 credit they’re giving away. Add it to your arsenal of sites to check for great rates on hotels.
