Change a Reservation
Reservations cannot be changed online. If you need to a make change to your reservation, please contact our Customer Service Centre at 1-866-270-2849 for assistance. Reservation changes may be subject to a $25 change fee. If your cancellation or change request is made after the cutoff date applicable penalties noted in the cancellation policy section of your reservation may apply. Changes or cancellations made after check-in are subject to 100% penalty. Once you have checked into a hotel you cannot cancel nor receive credit for unused nights if you check-out early.
NOTE: You may be required to cancel your original reservation and rebook it for the new dates. However, we suggest you first check availability for the new desired dates in order to avoid any disappointment from canceling your first booking if the new dates are not available.
What is the cancellation policy? Will my credit card be charged if I do not cancel my reservation(s)?
Cancellation policies vary from each hotel and are implemented by hotels to avoid holding a room available for a guest who will not use it. If you do not cancel your reservation within the allotted cancellation period, the hotel will charge a penalty (usually one night's room charge plus tax) to the credit card provided to reserve the room. Please be sure to review the cancellation policy for your hotel carefully during the booking process. If you have questions about the cancellation policy for your particular hotel reservation, please contact our Customer Care Centre for assistance.
For non-cancelable reservations, no changes or cancellations are permitted once a confirmation number is issued.
My cancellation policy reads "Cancel 24 hours prior to arrival" and I plan on checking in at 11:00 pm. Can I cancel my reservation by 11:00 pm on the day before my arrival?
Cancellation policies are related to the hotel check-in time, not your projected arrival time. If your hotel cancellation policy indicates a 24, 48 or 72 hour cancellation policy, it means you must cancel your reservation by 4:00 pm local hotel time of the date in question.

Save Rate Hotels
What is a Save Rate Hotel?
Save Rate Hotels are special discounted room rates that are designated by a icon.
We book a high volume at these hotels to be able to negotiate lower rates than are generally offered to the public. When you book a Save Rate, you can be confident you are getting a great deal.
Why are Save Rates Hotels prepaid?
Prepaid reservations allow hotels to extend their deepest discounts. By prepaying your reservation you are assured that the rate paid is secured and that you will not be subject to room rate increases. The hotel room is charged to your credit card at the time of the booking. Hotels typically collect payment information separately for incidentals such as meals, movies, parking and phone calls. Cancellation terms and fees apply to prepaid bookings.
Multiple Room Reservations and Group Bookings
Our group reservations services provide you with the convenience of booking rooms for groups at the hotel of your choice. For your convenience you can book up to four rooms online through our hotel booking engine.
If you require five or more rooms please goto Group Bookings Site to make a group booking.
Special Rates and Discounts
How do I know if I qualify for a specific rate?
Rates displayed may include government, corporate, senior and AAA discounts. At the time of check-in, you may be required to present special documentation to confirm that you are qualified to receive the rate booked. Please refer to the rate description for information regarding ID or membership requirements. You will not receive these special rates at check-in without the proper identification, even if you booked the special rates online.
Can I use coupons from the hotel?
Currently we cannot accept hotel coupons towards your reservation.
What is the hotel check-in time?
Typically, the hotel check-in time is after 3:00 pm local hotel time.
Will the hotel hold my room if I am arriving late?
Because your reservation is guaranteed with a credit card the hotel is obligated to hold your room until 7:00 am the day after arrival.
What if I need early arrival?
Early arrival should be requested in the special request section of the reservation page. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request; however it is subject to availability upon arrival at the hotel.
What if there will be more than two adults in the room?
Most hotels allow additional guests to stay in the rooms at a charge (usually between $15 - $30 NZD per person, per night) provided the room has not exceeded the maximum number of guests per room. If you book a room that cannot accommodate your party size, the hotel may cancel your reservation or require that you book additional rooms. Please note that we can not be held responsible if you book a room type that cannot accommodate your party size.
Our children will be traveling with us - do they stay free?
In the United States children less than 12 years of age typically stay for free in the room using the existing bedding. In most other countries only children under the age of three stay free. The age requirements differ depending on the specific hotels policies, which can be viewed in the hotel information. It is the hotel's discretion to charge additional fees for extra persons staying in a room.
What if I need a specific type of hotel room (non smoking, handicapped, etc...)?
Please enter your request in the special request field of the reservation form. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request(s); however they are subject to availability upon arrival at the hotel and cannot be guaranteed.
