In most cases you can refund your hotel stays, however, if you are booking in advance your stay is much cheaper than those purchasing the month/week before. This can be when problems arise, hotels know that you are getting the room at a much cheaper rate than those last minute folk and so they apply cancellation fees to your bookings and make refunding a little trickier.
… we don’t blame them!
I mean think about it, these cancellations effect the whole chain, from the cancellation fees that you have to pay to the 30% potential income that each guest stay brings to the business. If you book through a travel agent, they also lose out on their commission.
transfertravel.com is the only peer-to-peer marketplace, allowing you to list your hotel booking to an audience of international buyers looking for last minute hotel deals.
The transfer over of guest names on a hotel booking prevents any losses occurring either with the customer, travel agent and with the hotel companies themselves. We can now get a refund without cancellation fees, the travel agent keeps the commission and the hotel maximises the business that comes with each room booked. Win win!
Now you may be thinking about all the hassle that comes with the transferring of guests, I will simply eliminate that headache with the following step by step guide:
Get registered on www.transfertravel.com – registering is free and easy to set up. It only takes a couple of minutes and you can sign in with your social accounts. We know time is important to you and we have simplified this process. Signing in with a photo and details adds trust with the buyer.
Once your hotel booking is in the travel marketplace buyers have the opportunity to communicate with you through our messaging service. They also can make an offer if you are willing to take less to ensure your hotel room is sold.
Once you have come to a decision with the buyer you can then change the name of the booking and take payment from the buyer. We recommend PayPal for this.
The buyer has a relaxing stay in the hotel and you have a pocket full of cash that you could have lost out on!
It’s as easy as that!
If you have any questions, any at all, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
