Everyone is planning their summer vacations these days, trying to get the best deal. For some of us, planning ahead is very stressful especially since there is always a chance that we may need to cancel. When it comes to hotel cancellation policy there is so much confusion that we decided it is time to shed some light on this topic. It has recently become even more confusing as the number of traveling sites have rapidly grown . As a first suggestion, and relatively obvious one to some, we recommend that if you think you may need to cancel your hotel booking remember to read the small print to ensure that you will not pay any extra fees when canceling hotel reservations.
When you booked your hotel directly from the hotel you have two options.
1. If you booked your hotel directly from the hotel through an ordinary program, most likely you will be able to cancel your hotel
reservation even 24 hours before your arrival date and will get back most of the amount you paid or won't be charged if you haven't paid yet. This usually is the easy case.
2. If you booked your hotel as an advanced purchase then Canceling your hotel reservation will not be as easy, since from the hotel's point of view, you already received a relatively good price and they don't want to give up on you so easily. Now it gets more complicated as we are moving forward to canceling your hotel rooms booked via traveling sites or traveling booking engines.
