Travelocity

Does anyone have any experience with booking through Travelocity? how long does it take for the charge to post? My credit card has been authorized for a few days now but they haven't posted the charge. My available balance is considering the pre-auth, but it just doesn't show up. Seems weird.

It should be immediate for
flights in my experience. For hotels it does stay temporary for awhile.

Not something I would worry about.

Many online merchants will put through an authorization for the full amount, and have it changed to a charge only several days later.

Anything up to 5 business days seems normal to me.

Ok, now I have a small charge - this was the cancellation insurance - but the actual fare hasn't posted yet. So weird.
