    • Trip to Goa

      Everything went smooth till all booking are done. However I was surprised when I landed at hotel and was told booking is not confirmed. The agent helped to put up in a similar hotel nearby for a day and shift back. But it is really a miss when a confirmed hotel voucher was shared. Not sure if next time I would pay extra to go through same experience or rather book myself.
