Probably be interesting to have some feedback from lodge operators on this one. Primary query is, if you received two bookings from the same person, one via Expedia and one via Booking.com and they were for consecutive dates (one night with Expedia and the next five nights with Booking.com), would you ever just cancel the Booking.com and process it all under Expedia for the entire six consecutive nights? I'd be interested to know what information lodge operators receive from these accom aggregators. Then there is the question of commission - are they getting a lessor rate from Expedia than Booking.com and what might the latter think about being cut-out? A US lodge that had basically done that to me and they have increased the room rate in the process. Booking is in three weeks time. They have admitted to the overcharge and want to credit me food & bev (ok, fine). So I end up with essentially an inflated invoice from Expedia all the while when I log into my Booking.com I can still see the original 5 day booking in place at the original rate making me wonder I'll end up with two rooms (lodge assures me not). Sorting this out of course, has been difficult. Could sit around and speculate why the lodge doesn't just put two charges through as per original bookings, they have their own reasons I guess. From multiple email corro and a phone call, they aren't filling me with confidence that they know what they are doing. I understand the property has just been completely overhauled so imagine people are learning the ropes. In case you are thinking "why not book direct and save the operator the 5-20% comm?", well I would normally always do so. However, when Booking.com offer you "free cancellation" and the lodge operator does not, and you don't know 100% that you can actually make the trip, you go with the safest option. I spend about 90 nights a year in booked accom and chasing operators to price and/or condition match takes quite a lot of time for often not a lot of result. Opinions welcome.
