If you have more than one guest confirmed for the same room for the same date, this is considered an overbooking.

Although this situation isn’t ideal, we understand mistakes happen. The best—and easiest—way to resolve this is to try accomodating the guest in another room, of a similar (or better) category.

If this isn’t possible, take a look at the advice below:

1. Try and find accommodations nearby that are a similar (or better) standard. If you need help with this, our Customer Service Team is available 24 hours a day.

2. Remember to inform Customer Service of the overbooking by contacting us through the inbox tab on your Extranet, or call your local customer service number. The sooner you get in touch, the sooner we can help find a solution.

If the guest has already arrived, or is arriving in the next 24 hours:

In this case, we would ask you to find alternative accommodations within 30 minutes. It’s best to act as quickly as possible, so you can find a reasonably priced alternative.

If the guest is arriving in 24 hours or later:

You should try to find alternative accommodations as quickly as possible, so you find a reasonably priced alternative.

Additional Costs:

As part of the guest’s relocation, we ask you to provide private transportation to the new accommodations. Any other reasonable costs should also be reimbursed, for example, cost difference between your property and the alternative accommodations, transportation, phone costs to the guest, etc.
