Here's the problem.....night before I checked our balance and it was $312. No problem. The morning of leaving we had a note on the door that there was an additional charge of $70 and that our card had denied it. Went and paid with another card. When we checked our credit card online there was $1200 of pending charges and it had put us over the limit---that's why the card was denied. Have no idea why they triple charged us.......they said it would drop off in 3-5 business days. But still made us incur over limit charge. They also destroyed a large rolling suitcase.
