But not always everything goes according to plan and there are situations when the reservation has to be canceled. Let's take a closer look at how this can be done in my mini-instructions.

Cancellation Policy for Bookings

The first thing you can say about canceling your reservation onBooking.com - you have the opportunity to do this without any penalty, but the cancellation conditions for different hotels may vary. Therefore, even at the stage of choosing a room and booking, carefully look at the cancellation conditions set by the hotel. Reservations can usually be canceled free of charge if you do it a certain time before arrival (from 1 to 30 days, depending on the particular hotel), some hotels may even cancel the reservation and charge you an amount equal to the cost of living in a room for one day.

When initially choosing a hotel room, pay attention to the cancellation policy. In this case, the booking does not require your bank card number and the cancellation is free of charge:

When you select specific dates of arrival, the site draws your attention to what date the cancellation will be free for you:

How to cancel reservation on Booking

Immediately after booking

Immediately after booking on the site Booking undera message confirming that a letter has been sent to your email confirming your reservation will be a link “Cancel booking or make changes”, by clicking on which you can immediately make corrections.

In your account

If you have a registration on a Buckinge, then you can enter the site as an authorized user, and in your account you can cancel any of your reservations or change it.

By the link in the email

Next, consider the case when you book a hotel on Booking.com as an unregistered or unlocked user.

In case the reservation was perfecta few days ago and you have already closed the page of booking, you need to go to your email, which you specified at the time of booking. There you need to find a letter with reservation confirmation. It has links to change or cancellation of your reservation. You can use them if necessary. Opening the letter confirming the reservation, sent by Booking.com, you can see at once two links to cancel the reservation.

The first link is "Make a change to the reservation":

And the second button-link - "Cancel reservation":

Both links lead to the same booking page, where you can finally cancel your reservation. Under the red cancel button it is written how long the cancellation will be free:

After pressing the red button in the pop-up window, you can select the reason for cancellation and once again confirm your decision:

Everything, the reservation is canceled! A message will appear on the screen about the successful cancellation of the reservation and on what conditions it was canceled. In this case, free of charge:

P.S. I remind for those who do not know that instead of Booking it is better to use the RoomGuru service, which allows you to find out the prices for a particular hotel in several booking systems at once, and in Booking as well. Thus, you can decently save on hotels, as prices differ.
