Partner and I booked accommodation at a certain hotel in Gordes...
Two weeks later we noticed on his credit card account $170 deducted from some random hotel in Provence.
We knew something was fishy because we book all of our accommodation through expedia yet this deduction was by a hotel we haven't even looked at.
It turns out the hotel is located about 90 minute drive from the one in Gordes and its a sister hotel..
Anyway we called the bank, blocked the credit card and the bank is investigating the transaction. It seems too much of a coincidence that the charge was made by a hotel in such close proximity.. so I am going now have to cancel my accommodation at this so called hotel.. I am just waiting on confirmation by the bank.
Has anyone had this happen? Is this common?
