Consumer forums and OYO Rooms
I've had the worst experience with the Oyo rooms total holiday packages of North East India package which includes Sikkim, lachung and Darjeeling. After constantly trying to reach their customer support by calls and mails, still they're reluctant to give any proper information or any sort of solution.

This is the last mail which I've sent them when they asked for customer feedback, and after that they're not even replying.

There should be a regulatory body for this kind of online traveling companies which doesn't care about their customers after getting all the money in advance and as they're located mostly in Delhi region it's not even possible to get there physically to report at local police stations.

If someone has faced the same kind of problems please let me know and also the solution to the same.
Mail sent on 2nd June 2019

Our overall experience of the tour with your Oyo total holidays is the worst ever and got mentally harassed in all the process of complaining and not getting on time solutions. It's been very much distressing as we've faced many problems thorough out the whole your and didn't get solutions on time and there's very big problem of contacting the responsible person who could solve the problem and has the authority or any knowledge of how he or she can be helpful.
And also as per promised by Oyo there were no Oyo captains assigned to us. After so many requests we're assigned 2 persons. 1) Ashima and 2) Antriksh.
Ashima was never there to talk to us and was of no use to us at all. And Antriksh said that he's not looking after the issues regarding Gangtok. So we're helpless from that end.

As I've already mentioned in the previous mails and also in the telephonic conversations with everyone on your end, we're left on the road on 24th at Gangtok. The transporter said that he's not allowed to go further than that, instead of that your team or the hotel should be responsible enough to arrange it.
After that when we reached to the Dwang resorts, the manager denied us to stay there as he didn't have adequate staff and there's also renovation going on. So we've informed your team still nobody could solve or arrange anything. So as we're stuck and didn't have any other questions left had to stay there only. In the hotel room there was no adequate hot running water, no service staff and also poor food quality as there was also not cooking staff available.

So I need the money of stay in Dwang resorts for 24th may refund.

After that on 25th relationship manager Afreen khan and Mohammad amir told us to change the hotel and they'll arrange to make payment of it. So we changed the hotel to The hotel Kizomla, Gangtok.

On 25th as per itinerary we've to visit tsongmo lake and Baba Mandir but your team and transporter couldn't arrange it and our whole day just got wasted and they sent a car at 2 pm and he showed us 2 local sightseeing points. And also asked for Extra money to drop at our hotel. Which is contradictory to what you promise as pickup and drop from hotel.

We had to checkout on 26th morning but your team failed to make any payment so we've paid by ourselves despite of sort of money on us.

Your transporter provided us the car at 2 pm and by that time the road to Lachung was already closed due to landslide.if you had provided the car in the morning we could have make it to Lachung and could save another day ruined. And because of that we had to spend another day at Gangtok and we've also paid for that hotel.

On 27th may, We're constantly trying to be in contact with your team but still they couldn't help us with making payment for the hotel.

So we've paid for 25th, 26th and 27th May in the Kizomla hotel by ourselves. that we need to get refund.

On 28th may we're transferred to Darjeeling. But the provided hotel Anjali was in so poor condition that even on the worst day I would not stay there and I had to stay there because of no choice left. And the hotel staff was very rude as they instantly said this is the condition if you don't like it just leave. As it was evening we didn't have any choice and your team didn't help us resolving the issue on time so we had to stay overnight there and it was a horrible experience. I've already sent the pictures of the room in previous mails. It was way below any Hotel standards.

After doing so many calls and distressing wait on your customer care numbers and hour and hours of repeating the same issues to the different person everyone on the same number.

It was totally horrible and stressful experience and that too on a family holiday.

I want full refund of the tour that I've paid which is 1,14,000 plus the hotel charges that I've paid in Gangtok as mentioned above, plus 500 rupees for transportation to hotel from where driver left us on 24th. 250 rupees that driver took to drop us back to hotel on 25th. Then we did sightseeing on our own at Gangtok which did cost us 1000 rupees.

So I want all this refund with 1,14,000 plus hotel bills which I've attached in the mail.

I've already launched a complaint in the Department of Consumer Affairs, so revert back ASAP as taking this matter seriously.

I hope for positive and quick response and refund within the least time.
I have already started sharing my ill experience during my recent booking at Hotel OM Palace at Khatu Shayam, Near Reengus, Rajasthan. I was denied check-in, hotel staff and owner was too rude and arrogant, they wanted us to shell more money. They even provided no water, no empathy during this situation.

OYO support was worst. Tried so many calls to them, most of them were disconnected after 1 or 2 minute, some lasted for 30-40 minutes of waiting, once we were connected to other customer seeking resolution at OYO support, only 2-3 occasion, we are able to speak to OYO executive, but they promised to call back, that never happened. We had to left the hotel humiliated, and tired in hot and humid conditions of Rajasthan as if we have commited some crime or theft, by booking room through OYO and paying well in Advance. I have decided to never book hotel with OYO and make sure that none of my friend and family should book either. more

hello jay, we have had the same disastrous experience with oyo total holidays and our money is stuck with them. we have files consumer complain online we are waiting for the reply and if it doesn't work we will be filing a legal case. if you want we can join our hands together against oyo. oyo's policy is to take money and hen forget the customer. we have 38500/-rs to take as refund and we are under huge tension, because we saved this money over months to go to ladakh and also we are from not so financially strong background so this money matters hugely for us. more  
Jun 25
Yes I'm looking forward to filing a legal case more

I have all the sympathy, but I am strongly against such practices in Tourism Industries at large,
I suggest that all the aggrieved persons/parties should file collective suite in consumer court/Lokayukta/court to make it a public issue and report the same to media, face book an d other social media so that many other such aggrieved people may also join against such corrupt practices in Tourism Industry. more

Yes I believe so bcz there's nobody in-person who's responsible to answer us when something goes wrong. more

A law needs to be made where any 'service assured business' is allowed to take only 50 percent first then 25 percent on the usage of half the service and full payment only after the service is complete. for this purpose a middle assurance agency where the customer deposits the full money needs to be created. On clearance from the customer the money is transferred by this middle financial platform to the concerned business. The idea obviously needs more deliberation and refining. more  
Jun 08
That's a good suggestion. more

You can lodge the case in consumer court. more

Mr. Jay hopefully your issue gets resolved easily and at the earliest. Tourists are always easy prey. Specially in India, every single person or agency associated with tourism industry always try to take undue advantage of tourists unfamiliar with place being visited. Need of the hour to promulgate stringent law to curb such menace. more

Dhrubajyoti, I like you to correct your sweeping statement "every single person associated .........." There are individuals involved in inbound Tourism for 2 decades like me. Every single person goes out satisfied and I am like God to them . I know all the tricks in the trade from supply of water to shopping there is heavy paybacks for the person bringing customers .

By the way I supported your post on overcharging by a liquor shop in Bangalore . more
