Whether you book a Fairmont hotel room for a special occasion or just to escape every day life for the night, you sometimes can't avoid last minute travel plans. You may be looking for a refund but some hotel policies don't offer this, but all is not lost. You can sell your unwanted hotel bookings on TransferTravel.com to a traveller looking for a great deal.
Fairmont hotel cancellation policies are varying and different for each hotel, and type of room booked. This means that you will need to contact Fairmont directly to ask them about the cancellation policies on your individual booking. You can change or cancel your reservation on their website under the "Retrieve / Cancel" button. Your booking may be non-refundable if you cancel, leaving you out of pocket.
If you cannot cancel your hotel booking and you have booked the non-refundable booking you might feel like you are stuck with your booking. When you first find out that you can't use your hotel booking, you should check with your specific booking that you can change the name on the booking because this will let you sell it to someone else on TransferTravel.com. 80% of hotels now allow you to change the name of a guest on your booking but each booking is slightly different so talking with the hotel that you booked from is important.
Once you have checked you can make a name change, you simply create a new listing and fill in all the appropriate details of the listing on the TransferTravel.com platform. Add things like the dates and locations of your booking, a small description and any other important information that you think a buyer would need. For some tips and tricks, check out our blog on how to write a great listing.
When you sell your listing on TransferTravel.com you will be connected with the buyer where you can collect all appropriate details for the transfer. This might include things like full name, name on passport, passport number etc. Each travel ticket is different so make sure you get all the information you need. As soon as you change the names on the documents, upload the new document for the buyer, who will then confirm they have received them.
