Booking.com’s inadequate customer service left us without assistance.

In reality, the company seems to rely on hosts agreeing to a resolution or refund in case of issues, indicating that unscrupulous owners might evade accountability for providing subpar accommodation, leaving guests to bear the consequences.

When I raised this concern with Booking.com, inquiring about their policy when a guest reports a safety risk and the protocol if a host refuses compensation for a disrupted stay, along with details on how their modest compensation offer is calculated, Booking.com chose to ignore all the questions. Their response merely stated, “We’re sorry to hear about the experience of the customer you brought to our attention. We have reached out directly to apologize and will be offering a full refund as a gesture of goodwill.” This implies that the payment is a goodwill gesture rather than a requirement under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
