FAQ

The simplest way to make a hotel booking is to perform a hotel search for your chosen destination from our homepage, we have a simple to use clearly labelled booking form and completing a reservation should only take a few minutes. To book over the telephone please can contact one of our sales advisors for help and assistance.

The full range of payment methods we support are listed on our payment screen.

The lead guest booking on travelup needs to be at least 18 years of age, some hotels have higher minimum age requirements, should a higher age restriction apply then this will be specified in the hotel description.

These can vary by room type within each hotel, we WILL always display the exact cancellation policy on the payment page prior to the booking being finalised. The most common cancellation policies are:-

Non-Refundable: These are typically the cheapest available room rates with the strictest conditions, full payment is required at the time of booking and no refund is provided for cancellations.

Flexible: Full payment is still required to reserve the room but the reservation can be cancelled and refunded up to 7 days before arrival.

Pay at Hotel: These rooms can usually be cancelled up until the day before arrival free of charge, a valid payment card is required to secure the room but the actual payment is collected locally by the property. The hotel will collect payment in the local currency so the exact amount charged by the hotel is subject to daily exchange rate fluctuations.

Hotel Specific: In this scenario the hotel will provide a cancellation policy for the room being viewed in real time, in most cases this will mean that any cancellation after booking will incur a penalty charge levied as a fixed amount or as a percentage of the total price.

The amount due to be refunded will be clearly specified during the cancellation process. Refunds are processed by us within 48 hours but can take 7-10 days to be returned to your account as these are subject to the timescales imposed by the card issuer. Should you need to cancel your booking you can email hotels@travelup.com, please allow up to 24 hours for a response.

Our total price is for the full duration of your stay and includes the cost of the room plus any applicable meals. Full details of any locally payable tourist taxes or hotel in resort fees for services will be provided in a price breakdown throughout the booking process.

The prices displayed on our website are calculated in real time for a specific search, we make live availability requests to several specialist providers and prices can fluctuate mainly due to suppliers updating currency exchange rates and changing room availability.

We can only collect for the tax we are authorised to receive so when a local authority imposes a tourist tax in a local currency that needs to be collected by the hotel we are unable to include this in our selling price. We will always endeavour to provide a breakdown of the taxes that are applicable to your stay so that you are fully aware of the total cost you will incur.

We will always show prices and availability for each room based on the room occupancy and the child ages specified in your hotel search. If you require a cot instead of a full size bed then any information about the availability of cots is usually contained in the hotel description. If you require advice prior to booking a room then please call one of our expert sales advisors.

We offer a variety of catering options and the meal plan is shown next to each room price, the most common meal types we publish are:-

Room Only = No meals provided

Self-Catering = No meals are included but the room will have a kitchen section with some cooking and food storage facilities

Bed and Breakfast = Breakfast is included in the room price

Half Board = Room price includes both breakfast and an evening meal

Full Board = Room price includes breakfast, lunch and an evening meal

All-Inclusive = The room prices includes all meals and drinks, the exact details on the type of beverages included and the restaurant opening times will be shown in the hotel description.

We use recognised and trusted licensed software to encrypt and protect your card details from being visible to any third parties. We also support PayPal payments where PayPal process the payment on your behalf without sharing any of your personal card data.

3-D Secure is an additional security check for online credit and debit card payments. The intention behind the system is that it can help to reduce fraudulent use of stolen card details. If 3-D Secure applies to your booking then you will asked to complete the required security steps to complete your booking.

We will normally provide a downloadable accommodation voucher on your confirmation page. In the unlikely event that the hotel provider doesn’t give us instant confirmation then we will provide an email –confirmation. In the majority of cases your booking is confirmed within seconds of payment being taken. In some rare cases where we need to contact the hotel supplier to manually confirm the room it may take up to 12 hours to confirm your reservation.

Please ensure that Adobe Reader is installed on your computer, if you require your voucher to be provided in a different format then please contact our Customer Service team.

No, your booking is always confirmed by us on your behalf with the accommodation provider.

If you have received an accommodation voucher from us then your booking has been confirmed, some hotel chains hold booking information in a central system and then pass the guest names to the individual hotel a few days before arrival. If the hotel is not recognising your booking at the time you call then please contact our customer service team so that we can act on your behalf.

Bookings can be made by phone but may be subject to a surcharge. Payments are taken using a secure encrypted platform. For most transactions you will be sent a link by email which will allow you to process payment efficiently and securely.
