Hotel reservation procedure:
1. Guests book hotel room on the website, if check-in time is later than 18:00PM, most hotels require credit card guarantee, if earlier than 18:00PM normally hotels do not require credit card guarantee exept for the high seasons.
2. Then we process the hotel booking, and send guests confirmation Email within 10 minutes to 12 hours; if hotel is full or price updated, we inform guest by Email that the hotel can not be booked or price adjusted.
3. Guest can print out the confirmation Email and the hotel address/telephone, when arrive in the hotel, guest can show the confirmation email to reception and inform them the guest name to check in hotel with the discount price. (all the guest's info is already in the hotel system, the hotel is waiting for the guest to check in. If you are going to arrive in the hotel late, please call the hotel to keep your room, and you are on the way to the hotel.)
4. Guest check out in the hotel, the guest will enjoy the discounted rate for the room charge, which is guaranteed by our agreements with hotels in China.
Hotel Payment Method:
Pay at hotel side (when you arrive in the hotel check-in), no need pre-payment for hotel bookings; credit card guarantee is for room guarantee only, no online payment charged for hotel bookings.
Difference between "Book by Credit Card" and "Book Not by Credit Card":
* Book by Credit Card can guarantee the guest's room if the guest will check in later than 18:00, this is very important in the hotel peak seasons. If the guest does not check in the hotel without prior notice, the hotel will charge the guest's credit card for one night's fee.
* If it is not in the hotel peak seasons, Book Not by Credit Card may also guarantee the guest's room till 18:00 clock of the arrival date.
In both way the hotel will reserve the rooms for guests, if credit card is required by the hotel, we will notify the guest to provide credit card info to secure their rooms.
