Top Booking Tips
Let me give you a top tip
We’ve partnered up with Booking.com to help you find the perfect accommodation for your budget and travel needs. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be unsure what to consider before making a booking, so we've made a checklist to help you find the stay that's right for you.
1. Find out about a property’s health and safety measures
Many properties' pages on Booking.com now provide more in-depth details on the specific health and safety measures they have in place. This includes information about physical distancing measures and the type of cleaning regime the property has implemented. These details are presented in a clear and consistent format so you can easily compare them. You can also check each property's overall cleanliness review score, based on previous guests' experiences.
2. Check the accommodation's cancellation policy
Many properties offer refundable booking options. Click on the respective policy on the property page to find out more – it’s worth reading the small print. This is also where Booking.com provides details about the risk you may be taking in booking non-refundable or partially refundable reservations.
3. Choose the type of accommodation you're most comfortable with
Whether you’re happy staying in a hostel, keen to book a hotel room or looking for a whole home, Booking.com has the right filters in place to facilitate your search. Also check our budget guide below to see which types of accommodation are available in each host city.
4. Consider check-in policies and additional costs
Before booking, be sure to read up on the accommodation’s policy – simply scroll to the ‘House rules’ at the bottom of the individual accommodation descriptions on Booking.com’s website.
- Adding an extra guest to your accommodation may result in additional costs. Be sure to know the final number of people staying before you confirm your booking.
- For smooth travels, be aware of your accommodation’s check-in and check-out policies. You may also be eligible for a late check-out if you’re a member of Booking.com’s loyalty programme, Genius.
- Room prices may vary depending on city/VAT taxes. Extra bedding, towels, accommodation activities and facilities may also occur additional costs.
- Double check if your accommodation properties accept credit cards, require a deposit or an upfront payment.
5. Don't be afraid to ask for help
Still need more information? If you’re using Booking.com, they have an extensive COVID-19 FAQ section as well as a COVID-19 resource page. And their customer service team is available 24/7 to answer any questions.
