What happens if you book a hotel and the price drops?
If you have already booked a hotel and the price drops, it may be possible to get a refund for the difference in price. However, whether or not you are eligible for a refund will depend on the hotel’s policies and the terms of your reservation.
Many hotels offer a “best rate guarantee” or a price match policy that allows you to get a refund if you find a lower rate for the same room type, dates, and number of guests on another booking site. In this case, you would need to submit a claim and provide proof of the lower rate, and the hotel would then adjust your reservation to match the lower rate.
If the hotel does not offer a best rate guarantee or price match policy, it may still be possible to get a refund for the difference in price if you booked a refundable rate. Refundable rates allow you to cancel or modify your reservation without penalty, and you may be able to rebook the same room at a lower rate.
It’s important to check the hotel’s cancellation and modification policies before booking to ensure that you are aware of any fees or restrictions that may apply. If you have questions about a price drop or refund, you can contact the hotel directly or the booking site you used to make your reservation for assistance.
