Ctrip accused of faking hotel reservations

China’s largest online travel retailer Ctrip has been accused by an unnamed hotel operator of faking reservations on the Japanese version of its overseas travel platform Trip.com. The operator of the spa hotel said it found that the platform showed the property was still available for reservations while its rooms were fully booked.

The issue reportedly resulted in the hotel dealing with orders for which there were no rooms. It speculated that Ctrip intentionally overbooked the property in a bid to charge extra fees for cancellations. TechNode could not verify the claim. In a statement issued to TechNode, Ctrip apologised for the incident, saying it was a result “misaligned information” with its accommodation partners
