Costco Travel Complaints and Reviews
I have booked cruises with Costco travel for years and every time I have to call back because something is incorrect about my booking. I am always on hold for a very long time and recently Costco is unreachable because of inclement weather. In this day and age weather should not be a reason to close down a call center an entire weekday. Once they do open up again I will cancel all my cruises I have booked with them and I will also cancel my...Read more

I travel to Las Vegas 5 to 6 times a year. I always use Costco Travel to select the best price of four major car rental companies that they deal with. Most of the time, Budget Rent a Car is the lowest priced in Las Vegas. On October 11, 2016 I picked-up a intermediate size rental for the same price as quoted on my Costco confirmation Number C324748367. I signed the agreement and used the car for duration that I requested and returned the car...Read more

Costco Travel Car Rental Review

I have tried to get a deal on a car rental with Costco for Bremerton or Port Orchard, Wa for about 2 months. When I compare Costco to other bookibg sites, Costco is the same price and sometimes even higher. I have saved money in the past, but not this time! I emailed customer service about this, but they didn't even bother with a response. Poor way to impress customers!
Avis Car Rental Review
by Rdanelski120 #907791
We rented an Avis car through Costco Travel. Avis was the worse experience we have ever had. The Agent in West Allis, Wisconsin, Carl Crunbliss was an arrogant, pompous, rude ***. We weren't treated very well when we picked up the car, and even worse when we returned it. Really not Costco's fault, but maybe Costco should drop this place. Will never rent from Avis again!!!
I had contracted a rental vehicle through Costco Travel for a light pickup truck to move a kitchen table and chairs, for rail shipment, while traveling to California. These items belonged to my girlfriend's mother who had passed-away, and they had sentimental value. Well, the light truck was dirty (still had dirt caked in the bed of the pickup) and, although we had a contracted rate and declined all additional attempts to sell us products and...Read more
Im sitting here reading all these horrible reviews and im shocked. I have been using Costco Travel for 15 years. I used them to rent cars book vacations and rent hotels. I have never had a problem that wasnt solveable way beyond my satisfaction. So im confused. How is it that allll these people have been ripped off by Costco and I have been well taken care of every single time I book? I have had so maby positive experiences that this site sounds...Read more
Cannot explain, how brutal the Costco travel customer service is. Please do not book your vacation through Costco travel, they ruin your vacation. I decided to add my review based on my experience. They allocated cheap hotels and put you on waiting when you are at vacation place. We traveled to Hawaii as a family. Costco Travel is still very young, not well researched and totally sucked. This business venture was not thought out well. Don't get...Read more
I have tried three times to book a car through Costco car rental online reservations. Each time, I choose the car, go through the booking process, and check all the details (including, of course, the final price with all taxes, etc.) before hitting "confirm". As soon as I hit the "confirm" button, I get a pop-up message that says that my reservation is confirmed, BUT, it also says that the price has changed. When I check my email reservation...Read more
We have had amazing experience with Costco Warehouse for years and so we decided to book our Alaska vacation through costco travel. We spent a great deal and checked on various things including cuisine prior to booking. Unfortunately we has a terrible on-board food experience and being on the cruise ship we were locked. We returned and shared our experience with Costco travel. Unfortunately the customer service mentioned that there was no...Read more

I booked a Royal Caribbean cruise through Costco Travel because I falsely assumed that Costco Travel and Costco Warehouse are run by the same people (after all, I get good service from shopping there). BIG MISTAKE. Everything was going well until checkout/pay. Once I clicked submit order (charge to card), it didn’t load. I had no choice but to exit out of the page. The website had this same problem from 11:30pm-10:00am the next day. Finally when...Read more
