I recently booked 4 return tickets (2 bookings) from Malaysia to USA through expedia, it was a Malaysian site, so charges was in Malaysian Ringgit.
Gosh, when I received my credit card statement, the actual charges was higher than that quoted and printed on the receipt.
I contacted the bank and was told that Expedia claimed their charges in USD, ALTHOUGH IT WAS EXPLICITLY AND DEFINITELY QUOTED IN THEIR FINAL CHARGES THAT THE TOTAL CHARGES WAS ALREADY CHARGED TO MY CARDS IN RINGGIT.
So, it seemed that that Expedia will definitely make extra money by charging in USD if USD IS stronger and charges in local currencies it USD is weaker, which is definitely a way of ripping off their customers.
found this in the web:
Does any one have any such experience with Expedia?
I had done many bookings with Expedia before, but this definitely put me off, looks like its kind of tough even to believe in such established name nowadays!
It appears they don't only scam their customers, but are also involved in price fixing to rip off their customers:
Looks like we better avoid Expedia in the future!
