Most common customer service questions:

Change a Reservation

Reservations cannot be changed online. If you need to a make change to your reservation, please contact our Customer Service Center at 0845 644 0978 for assistance. Reservation changes may be subject to a $25 change fee. If your cancellation or change request is made after the cutoff date applicable penalties noted in the cancellation policy section of your reservation may apply. Changes or cancellations made after check-in are subject to 100% penalty. Once you have checked into a hotel you cannot cancel nor receive credit for unused nights if you check-out early.

NOTE: You may be required to cancel your original reservation and rebook it for the new dates. However, we suggest you first check availability for the new desired dates in order to avoid any disappointment from canceling your first booking if the new dates are not available.

Cancellation Policies

What is the cancellation policy? Will my credit card be charged if I do not cancel my reservation(s)?
Cancellation policies vary from each hotel and are implemented by hotels to avoid holding a room available for a guest who will not use it. If you do not cancel your reservation within the allotted cancellation period, the hotel will charge a penalty (usually one night's room charge plus tax) to the credit card provided to reserve the room. Please be sure to review the cancellation policy for your hotel carefully during the booking process. If you have questions about the cancellation policy for your particular hotel reservation, please contact our Customer Care Center for assistance.

For non-cancelable reservations, no changes or cancellations are permitted once a confirmation number is issued.

My cancellation policy reads "Cancel 24 hours prior to arrival" and I plan on checking in at 11:00 pm. Can I cancel my reservation by 11:00 pm on the day before my arrival?
Cancellation policies are related to the hotel check-in time, not your projected arrival time. If your hotel cancellation policy indicates a 24, 48 or 72 hour cancellation policy, it means you must cancel your reservation by 4:00 pm local hotel time of the date in question.

Confirmation of Booking

What if I do not receive a confirmation at the time of booking?
If your confirmation page does not display after completing your booking, please check your email for your confirmation. If you do not receive your email confirmation within ten minutes please complete our request form and a duplicate copy will be emailed to you.

What if I do not receive my email confirmation? If you do not receive an email after making a reservation, it may be that we have the incorrect email address or your Internet Service Provider may have blocked the email.

  1. The name the reservation was booked under
  2. The hotel name and location (city)

How long will it take for the hotel to have my reservation information?

There are certain reservations that are booked out of an allotment. These rooms are guaranteed and payment will be due upon check-out of the hotel. In some cases the hotel will not have your name on the reservation until approximately one week prior to arrival.

If you booked a discounted prepaid reservation, please print out a copy of your voucher and bring it to the hotel to provide documentation that your reservation was paid in advance.

Hot Rate Hotels

What is a Hot Rate Hotel?
Hot Rate Hotels are special discounted room rates that are designated by a SAVE or HOT icon.
We book a high volume at these hotels to be able to negotiate lower rates than are generally offered to the public. When you book a Hot Rate, you can be confident you are getting a great deal as they are backed by our Best Rate Guarantee.

Why are Hot Rates Hotels prepaid?
Prepaid reservations allow hotels to extend their deepest discounts. By prepaying your reservation you are assured that the rate paid is secured and that you will not be subject to room rate increases. The hotel room is charged to your credit card at the time of the booking. Hotels typically collect payment information separately for incidentals such as meals, movies, parking and phone calls. Cancellation terms and fees apply to prepaid bookings.

What if I find a lower price after booking a Hot Rate?
If you find a lower price on another website within 24 hours of booking a Hot Rate hotel, simply complete our Best Rate Guarantee Request Form.
If the lower rate on a travel website can be verified to our satisfaction, we will match the rate PLUS pay you 10% of the difference in price.

Room Occupancy

What if there will be more than two adults in the room?
Most hotels allow additional guests to stay in the rooms at a charge (usually between $10 - $20 USD per person, per night) provided the room has not exceeded the maximum number of guests per room. If you book a room that cannot accommodate your party size, the hotel may cancel your reservation or require that you book additional rooms. Please note that we can not be held responsible if you book a room type that cannot accommodate your party size.

Our children will be traveling with us - do they stay free?
In the United States children less than 12 years of age typically stay for free in the room using the existing bedding. In most other countries only children under the age of three stay free. The age requirements differ depending on the specific hotels policies, which can be viewed in the hotel information. It is the hotel's discretion to charge additional fees for extra persons staying in a room.
