Think of this scenario: you booked a room in a luxurious hotel, just a few steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, in your dream country. Unfortunately, you fell severely ill just before the day of your vacation. So, now you have no vacation, no beach. You are left all alone, confused and trying to understand how to get the money refunded back to your bank account, but your hotel room was non-refundable. So what to do now when you can’t cancel your hotel reservation?
Talk To The Hotel Directly About Their Cancellation Policy
Talking to the hotel directly is important once you know that you can no longer use your travel plans. They can let you know what their cancellation policy is and how much you would need to pay if you were going to cancel your booking. Most hotels have either refundable or non-refundable bookings. Non-refundable bookings are usually cheaper and therefore more attractive when you are booking.
