How to cancel a reservation at a booking without penalty

Booking.com is the most popular system for pre-ordering hotels online anywhere on the map. You can find and reserve the right hotel while planning your vacation. But it happens that plans collapse, the trip is canceled and there is a need to cancel the reservation.

Cancellation policy for booking

Pay attention to the rules for making a reservation before booking a hotel room. Free cancellation of booking is possible if all the conditions of the selected hotel are met. The reservation can be withdrawn without penalty for a certain period (1-30 days) before the check-in date. You will see all information about the number of available rooms and the nuances of refusal immediately after entering the dates of residence.

Please note that, as a rule, hotels charge a fee for 1 night in case of cancellation of the reservation after a certain date. But sometimes the penalty can equal the entire amount of your order. Often a hotel offers the same room under different conditions - a free reserve or full prepayment. The second option will cost less, but in case of failure you will not receive your money back. Use the offer only if you are sure that the trip will take place, otherwise do not take risks.

The rules of some popular hotels in the table will help to make an overview of the cancellation system of the preliminary reservation.

Hotel reservation cancellation

After refusing to book a hotel, the booking site asks for a reason in the corresponding line (an analysis of the reasons for which it was refused is necessary for the site to work successfully), but you can leave this line blank.
