It's only rated 1 star because I couldn't figure out how to give 0 stars in this review. I planned a trip well in advance and would not have cancelled under any circumstances. However, the President of the United States has instructed us NOT to travel. So I cannot go due to Federal Directives. Yet, Red Awning will NOT provide a refund. It seems to me that Force Majeure takes precedence here and this policy is wrong. I expect I will eventually take this trip sometime in the future - and with a refund would have gladly booked through RedAwning. Now I will make sure you NEVER receive another penny from me and anyone else who will listen to the way you treat your customers. Profiting off a national pandemic is disgusting.
We booked an apartment through "Booking.com" / "RedAwning Vacation Rental". We wanted to contact “RedAwning” regarding a booking because we urgently needed information. There was no reply to e-mail and nobody is reachable by phone ( only the answering machine ) . We are talking about the period of more than 4 weeks with many email / phones calls. I can only advise against booking a house or apartment via "RedAwning Vacation Rental". The worst thing about booking is not having a contact person.
Avoid RedAwning at all cost ! First of all they do not even have a phone line - this was a shock, I wish I had known I would never be able to contact them. They also refuse to respond to my emails asking to speak to a manager. They are refusing to give refunds in the Covid-19 crisis. I am beyond dissatisfied with this company. I would give zero stars if that was an option.
