Saved $53.50

May 30th, 2006 at 03:45 am

walked with mom for 55 min

When we returned our Avis rental to the Edmonton airport in Canada we were told we owed an additional $53.50 for a one-way fee. It stinks when companies add charges on after you've paid and used something and there's no time to dispute it since you've already paid for the use. Anyways, since we had to catch a plane I figured there was nothing I could do about it.

Today I emailed the travel agency that booked the rental car for us and complained about not letting us know the cost up front since it would have affected our decision to rent with Avis. I told them we wouldn't book with Avis ever again. They offered to refund the money and I took them up on it. I'm still not going to book with Avis again, but I would use the Travel Agency again.

I got a lot of sample products from each of the hotels we stayed in. I've never had moisturizer samples in a hotel before, but the first one we stayed in, the Hampton Inn, had Purity basic moisturizer samples. I started using it today and really like it, it's a very light moisturizer. I'll have to find out where they are sold.

All of the hotels we stayed in were clean and nice. The Ptarmagan Inn in Banff was probably the least nice. It was really old. No microwave or fridge or A/C. They had portable fans in the room. At Lake Louise we stayed at a 5 star hotel that was a suite.

It had a living room with a fireplace and dining area, plus a separate bedroom with a king size bed and a bathroom with a separate shower stall and a jacuzzi tub. I probably spent a half hour in that tub that night. I was so stiff from sitting on the train for two days it felt wonderful.

Unfortunately, even though we specified non-smoking rooms, my parents room smelled of smoke and since my mom is allergic to smoke they had to move them. The only other room they had available was a small room on the 5th floor in the back with no view. It was a better room than any other room we had on the trip, but compared to the first one it was a real let down. My dad wasn't very happy about that. The room they were originally given was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but someone obviously didn't care. It was very unfortunate, but nothing we could do about it since the hotel was full.

Finished reading the library book Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher. Sci/Fi. Very Good.

    when we went to my dad's second funeral in ky and burial, beside my mom's grave.. my cop son made all of the hotel arrangements, we used the hampton inn, for the swimming pool, restaurant and exercise room.. anywho, my son was going to arrive earlier than us from nc... so, he booked 2 rooms, one by the pool and one on the second floor... well, when we got back home, my discover card showed we stayed at an additional hampton inn and was charged.. i had to call and call and call.. since my son was not available to correct this, and they could not locate their records.. two months later, they finally credited my account.. i talked to the last manager and he said he could not remember us staying there, and he would credit the account.. can you imagine.. we had proof, we stayed at the one hampton inn and that was it... crazy, some of these ppl. are not trained very well.. and they switched us to a handicapped room, on the second nite too. i forgot to tell that one.
