For questions regarding travel bookings, please visit our help page.
All flights should be confirmed with the airline directly as they may have last minute schedule changes. We recommend that you do so at least 24 hours prior to departure for domestic flights (72 hours for flights to Hawaii and international destinations).
All reservations must be made in the EXACT name of the person traveling - no nicknames. For international travel the name on the reservation must be EXACTLY as it appears on the traveler's passport. Airlines do not allow name changes.
In most cases, standby upgrades will not be permitted.
Many of our discounted tickets do not allow for Frequent Flyer Mileage accrual.
Tickets will not be sold to unaccompanied minors age 18 and under. Tickets may be purchased for minors age 18 and under; however, they must be accompanied by an adult when traveling.
We reserve the right to cancel requests for High Security Risk Areas.
All customers are advised to know the entry requirements for the country(ies) to which they are traveling or entering. Reliable information regarding international travel can be found at travel.state.gov.
Discounthotels.com's sale of tickets to you does not imply any guarantee of passenger's ability to enter the country of destination. Traveler understands that Discounthotels.com, Inc. takes no responsibility for determining passenger eligibility to enter any specific country.
A passengers duty tax may be assessed upon departure from some international destinations such as Mexico, and the United Kingdom. This is the passengers responsibly and is not collected by Discounthotels.com upon purchase.
If your paper airline ticket is lost or stolen, please call the airlines directly for assistance
In most cases, the airlines require you to purchase replacement tickets at "today's"? fare. If your original tickets are not used after a designated period of time—generally 3 to 4 months, depending on the airline—you will receive a credit for the purchase price of the replacement tickets, less the application fee. This fee varies by airline, but is typically $100.00 per traveler. Please note that these policies and fees are subject to change at any time.
White Label Fares
In some cases, certain agreements we have negotiated with an airline require us to conceal the airline name and/or schedule, flight numbers or connection cities until after you purchase the ticket. Once you have purchased your ticket, we reveal the airline in the final itinerary that appears after your reservation has been processed.
These flights are special fares that are NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-TRANSFERABLE AND NON-CHANGEABLE. If you are in any way uncomfortable with the idea that the actual airline information will only be revealed after you have purchased your tickets, select a different flight. However, if you are interested in substantial airfare savings, you should definitely consider these incredible money-saving fares
Hotel room bookings made available through Discounthotel.com’s hotel service are subject to the disclosed terms and conditions of the applicable hotel.
The "Total Charges" that you will pay for using our hotel service will always be disclosed to you before you submit your Request.
Charges for Taxes and Service Fees. In connection with facilitating your hotel transaction, we will charge your debit or credit card for Taxes and for Service Fees. This charge includes an estimated amount to recover the amount we pay to the hotel in connection with your reservation for taxes owed by the hotel including, without limitation, sales and use tax, occupancy tax, room tax, excise tax, value added tax and/or other similar taxes. The amount paid to the hotel in connection with your reservation for taxes may vary from the amount we estimate and include in the charge to you. The balance of the charge for Taxes and Service Fees is a fee we retain as part of the compensation for our services and to cover the costs of your reservation, including, for example, customer service costs. The charge for Taxes and Service Fees varies based on a number of factors including, without limitation, the amount we pay the hotel and the location of the hotel where you will be staying.
We are not the vendor collecting and remitting taxes to the applicable taxing authorities. Our hotel suppliers, as vendors, bill all applicable taxes to us and we pay over such amounts directly to the vendors. We are not a co-vendor associated with the vendor with whom we book or reserve our customer's travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate and the type of applicable taxes vary greatly by location.
Depending on the city and property you stay in, you may also be charged resort fees or other incidental fees, such as parking charges. These charges, if applicable, will be payable by you to the hotel directly at checkout. When you check in, a credit card or, in the hotel's discretion, a debit card, will be required to secure these charges and any incidental fees (phone calls, room service, movie rentals, etc.) that you may incur during your stay.
Late Arrival and Failure to Check-in on First Night. If you are going to be delayed or find that you cannot check in to your hotel on the date you requested, you should contact the hotel to let them know. If you fail to check in to your hotel on the day of your reservation and do not alert the hotel, the remaining portion of your reservation will be canceled and you will not be entitled to a refund.
Special Needs. If you have special needs (e.g., wheelchair accessible room) you must call the hotel and verify that special needs can be met. Your hotel reservation will be refunded, canceled or modified if special handicapped needs cannot be met.
Must be 21 Years of Age. The guest on the reservation must be 21 years or older to check into the hotel.
Frequent Traveler Points. Frequent traveler points, upgrades, certificate vouchers and other discounts or incentives may not apply to Discounthotel.com’s hotel service.
Hotel Requests for specific features such as bedding type or non-smoking rooms are simply that, and while most hotels will strive to honor your requests, neither Discounthotels.com nor the hotel guarantee that your request will be honored.
Hotels change pet acceptance policies often and without notice. It is very important that you confirm directly with the property that they do, indeed, accept pets. Discounthotels.com accepts NO RESPONSIBILITY for an individual property's pet policy. You must call the hotel directly to confirm pet policies, including pet restrictions on breeds.
Currency Conversions are based on approximate exchange rates at the time of booking and should be used for an approximate guide only. These rates are approximate base room charges. Individual hotels collect payment for per night room tax, resort fees, and cleaning fees, which may be accessed on a daily basis. They also will collect for incidentals such as meals, movies, games, wet bar, parking, and phone calls.
Some rates have special requirements such as Corporate, Government (including Military), AAA, or AARP membership. These rates will require you to present identification at the time of check-in to prove that you qualify. Hotel properties are NOT obligated to honor these rates if you do not qualify.
Payment and Sales Tax
Discounthotels.com Travel accepts Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard credit cards for all purchases. All payments must be in US Dollars. Current billings address and phone information must be included with every order. Sales Tax will be charged on certain products depending on the shipping address as required by law. Due to the terms and conditions of our various airline contracts, multiple charges may appear on your credit card statement. Cancellation, change fees, and shipping fees will be additional.
