Alpharooms' guide to £10 hotel deposits
On selected hotel bookings (for check-ins between Sunday 1st December 2013 and Tuesday 31st December 2013 inclusive) over £100 we are only asking for £10 deposit to secure your booking at today’s prices. You will receive full confirmation of your booking as soon as the deposit has been paid and then full payment will be due 2 weeks before you travel, it really is a fantastic way to make sure you get a great deal on your holiday.
For other selected hotel bookings over £100 you can secure your booking with just a 20% deposit and full payment will be due 8 weeks before you travel.
How much will I pay today?
You will have to pay the full price of your flight, travel insurance, car hire and airport transfers if you are purchasing these at the time of booking as well as any booking fees that may be applicable to your itinerary. These are conditions enforced by the airlines and our insurance provider. Your accommodation will be covered by your £10 deposit or 20% deposit (depending on check-in dates).
When will I be expected to pay the balance?
The remainder of your balance will be due 2 weeks before you travel where the £10 deposit is applicable, or 8 weeks before travel where the 20% deposit is applicable. Your card details will be securely stored by our payment provider and we will attempt to automatically process a payment for the balance 2 weeks before you travel (where the £10 deposit is applicable, or 8 weeks before travel where the 20% deposit is applicable), please ensure you have the funds available for this transaction to complete or you may be required to pay a late payment charge. If you wish to pay the balance before this you can do so from the 'Manage my booking' area of the website.
Will I be affected by price changes?
No. When you pay your £10 deposit or 20% deposit you are securing your booking at that price, any changes will not have an effect on your final balance.
Can I cancel my booking?
