Mr. Darshan Kumar M Patel visited our portal on November 25th, 2018 at 04:13 pm and filed a complaint against OYO rooms related to online hotel booking issue. Mr. Patel was facing some issues with the cancellation of his hotel booking with OYO. On the very same day at 09:08 pm he got the resolution and marked his complaint as resolved.
A brief look into the travel complaint
Our client Mr. Patel made a hotel booking through OYO rooms. Later on, the booking was somehow canceled by OYO itself. He paid an amount of Rs 2950 and asked for its refund. The OYO representative told our client that the amount is non-refundable, but it can be adjusted in the next booking. So, Mr. Patel made another booking for Rs. 2970 as he had no other option. He paid an extra amount of Rs. 20 for the new booking, and the amount was adjusted.
Then there were some changes in our client’s plan, so he had to cancel the booking by his side but this time team OYO told him that neither he will get the refund nor the amount could be adjusted. This incident was shocking for our client as he was a regular user of OYO app and didn’t expect such a bad experience.
The resolution provided by us
After trying several times to find a solution on this matter, Mr. Patel did not receive any resolution. He came to our consumer complaint forum and filed a complaint against OYO rooms. Out of our four services, Mr. Patel chose to send emails to the company to solve his problem. As per his request, we sent an email to the company, and within 5 hours the complaint was resolved. Mr. Patel called the OYO customer care once again and received the resolution for his complaint.

Things they must keep in mind are location, hygiene, connectivity, budget and the most important thing is to read the reviews of the hotel.
