Orbitz says fare thee well to change, cancellation fees on hotel bookings

Good news for anyone who needs to make a change to their travel reservation. Orbitz announced that it will no longer charge fees to change or cancel hotel bookings.

Company officials say the change – on reservations made anywhere in the world – will make it easier for travelers to change their schedules as needed.

“We are totally obsessed with ensuring Orbitz.com is the best place to book a hotel on the Web,” Barney Harford, president and CEO of Orbitz Worldwide, said in a news release. “Earlier this year we led the industry with the launch of Total Price hotel search results and Hotel Price Assurance delivering meaningful value and transparency. Now by eliminating change and cancellation fees on all hotel bookings we’re giving customers yet another reason to book their hotel with Orbitz.com.”
