What Can I Do With A Non-Refundable Hotel, Villa or Accommodation Booking?
If you have a Monarch flight that was booked that you are no longer using you probably have accompanying hotel bookings and excursions. If they are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled, there is another option than losing out on the booking and money. TransferTravel.com was set-up for just this purpose – to help those who have non-refundable bookings to transfer them to somebody else.
How do I use TransferTravel.com to sell my hotel booking I can no longer use?
TransferTravel.com was made for people like you, savvy and smart! It is easy and simple to list your hotel booking and we provide personalised customer service to make sure that any questions you have are answered and both buyers and sellers are happy. The first step is registering which can be done through a social profile. The second step is listing your hotel. This includes the dates of the booking, the room type, hotel name and full price including any name change fees that are associated with the booking.
How do I transfer my hotel booking to someone else?
Once your listing has been bought on TransferTravel.com a message is created between you (the seller) and the buyer. Here you are promoted to share all information needed for the transfer to take place. In the case of hotel booking check with your hotel provider to see what information is needed. In most cases it is just a name change on the booking. Once you have this you can upload the document on TransfserTravel.com within 72 hours of the sale for the buyer. The buyer has 7 days to accept the transfer. To be fair to both parties TransferTravel.com holds the payment from the buyer until the booking is used and then it is released to you, the seller.
