For any other currencies that are not in the currency selection, default currency for charges will be Euros. The actual currency and amount that will be charged are shown on the actual booking page.
We also would like to let you know that otel.com cannot be held responsible for currency exchange rates or bank surcharges whatever the circumstances.
Some credit card providers might also charge an “International Transaction Fee”. This fee is passed on some credit card providers because the charge for your booking has been processed outside of the country that you reside in.
Please note that the charge has not been passed on by otel.com and that we cannot be held responsible for any international transaction charges passed on by your credit card issuer.
For “Pay at Hotel” bookings, the hotel will require a valid credit card number and details to guarantee the booking in the event that you don’t show up or make a late cancellation, etc. The hotel has the right to pre-authorize your credit card to ensure that the card has suﬃcient funds. The hotel will determine the actual currency for charges.
Please know that otel.com makes no charges when you make a “Pay at Hotel” booking.
A situation where a stay has to be protected at an alternate hotel only happens as a last resort when absolutely necessary and there is no way that the original hotel can accommodate.
The reason a booking has to be moved may be due to unnoticed renovations taking place at the original hotel, maintenance, overbooking or that they are closed during certain periods such as Christmas.
We would like you to know that we hate this as much as you do since it is completely beyond our control and otel.com accepts no liability for any losses or costs that might occur.
The cancellation policy that we have in place for every hotel is different and is clearly shown on the hotel information page, on the booking form and also on your pre paid accommodation voucher.
During special event periods, the hotel may pass on a different cancellation policy of which you will be informed as soon as we are notified.
Please also be informed while booking that there are some hotels/rooms that are non-refundable, in which case no refund is possible in the event of cancellation.
Cancellations are made online by logging in to your otel.com account, under “My Account”.
Please be informed that we will not be bound by nor held responsible for any changes and cancellations made directly with the hotel and please make sure you are familiar with your cancellation policy by reading your prepaid accommodation voucher.
There are some hotels that are non-refundable, and some others with a minimum night stay, in which case no cancellation is possible.
Any refund due will be credited directly to the credit card that was used to pay for the booking. The refund normally takes between 7–14 days to appear on your credit card statement depending on your bank's procedures.
Please read the hotel’s cancellation policy before going ahead with the cancellation. There are some hotels that are non-refundable, in which case no refund is possible for cancellation.
