When you book your hotel through Booking.com, you probably aren't thinking about cancellation policies. However, sometimes life gets in the way and we have to make last minute changes to our travel plans. If you can't get a refund on your booking, you may still be able to sell your tickets to someone else through TransferTravel.com.
It is important to note that Booking.com is a travel aggregator, meaning their hotel deals are sold by individual providers. Your booking will refer to the travel providers' policies so you will have to confirm if you can cancel with the hotel itself. Unfortunately, this also means if your booking is non-refundable, you are then stuck with a non-refundable booking.
If you have booked a Booking.com reservation that is non-refundable, you may be able to change the name on your booking. If you can change the name on your reservation then you can sell it to someone desperately looking for the exact booking that you have. TransferTravel.com was set up for people like you in circumstances like this, to make sure that hotel rooms you can no longer use are not wasted.
It's simple and easy to transfer your booking and get some of your money back. All you need to do once you have you signed up for TransferTravel.com is create a listing with all the details about your bookings. The more information the better as it gives the buyer confidence in you and your tickets. You can find more advice in our quick guide to selling. Once your listing has been bought by someone on the website you will have 72 hours to change the name on your booking and upload the new booking confirmation for the buyer. The buyer will then have 7 days to confirm that they have received the documents and are happy with them. Your money is then released to you 24 after the buyer has used the reservation. Your money and tickets don't go to waste and another traveller can use your booking!
