Class action against Expedia, Inc., Corporation Expedia Canada, Hotels.com LP, Travelscape LLC and Tour East Holidays (Canada) Inc.

On January 10, 2018, Kugler Kandestin filed an Application for authorization to institute a class action against Expedia, Inc. and other affiliated entities on behalf of Quebec consumers who reserved a hotel room via Expedia.ca, Hotels.com, or Travelocity.ca and who were required to pay, since January 10, 2015, in order to secure their reservation, an additional amount above the total price displayed at the time of the reservation (notably for fees commonly referred to as “hotel fees”, “establishment fees”, or “resort fees”).

The Application alleges that the Defendants failed to respect numerous rules of public order in the Consumer Protection Act and the Regulation respecting travel agents, including rules relating to misleading advertising and the obligation to display a total price, including the hotel fees in question.

The Application seeks the reimbursement of the hotel fees in question as well as exemplary damages.

If, since January 10, 2015, you have paid hotel fees above the total displayed price for the reservation of a hotel room, it is possible that you were charged such fees in a manner that we consider illegal. We would be happy to discuss with you, confidentially and at no cost, in order to inform you of your rights within the framework of this file. You can communicate with Me Pierre Boivin or Me Alexandre Brosseau-Wery, the lawyers responsible for this file, at 514 878-2861, or by email at pboivin@kklex.com or awery@kklex.com.

Please note that if you fall within the class definition in the Application, you will automatically be part of the class action if it is authorized by the Court without having to take any steps to join the class action. You will also have the opportunity to opt out of the class action following the terms of an eventual authorization judgment.

We will continue to update this page as the case progresses.
