Roomer Travel Ltd., and its subsidiary Roomer Travel, Inc. and affiliates (“Roomer", "we", "our", or the "Company") welcome you (“User", "You") to our online marketplace where Users can buy and sell unused and non-refundable hotel reservations, allowing the sellers to avoid burdensome and exaggerated cancellation fees and allowing the buyers to enjoy incredibly low prices for exclusive hotel reservations (the "Service"), all as can be found on our website at www.roomertravel.com (the “Site”).
The Service allows sellers (“Seller/s”) in possession of hotel reservations with cancellation fees or otherwise non-refundable hotel reservations (“Reservation/s”) to avoid paying unnecessary cancellation fees by selling said reservations to buyers (“Buyer/s”) who wish to book relevant hotel rooms. Booking hotel reservation on the Service is conducted in a secure and reliable environment hosted on our Site and supported by our proprietary technology insuring payments are secure and accurate and that reservations are valid and transferred to the Buyers correctly. In addition, Buyers and Sellers may also post reviews and comments (“Review/s”) related to hotels and other travel matters in general on the Service.
We make no warranties as to the quality of service provided by any hotels visited as result of Reservations that were sold on this Site, nor we are responsible or liable for any damages or costs incurred to a User as a result, or in connection with, a Reservation purchased through the Service, other than expenses arising from the Buyer's inability to use a Reservation (for more information, please review our Buyer Protection Program. Please note, all prices may be displayed in various currencies, but the charge and invoice will be in US Dollar only.
In order to sell a Reservation, simply fill out the online form available on our Site at: https://www.roomertravel.com/sell with Your Reservation details, your selling price for such Reservation and the name of the guest who will check-in the hotel (the “Guest”). Once we validate the Reservation with the respective hotel, we will post your Reservation on the Site for sale. Once a Buyer opts to purchase Your Reservation and pays for the Reservation, We will transfer the Reservation to the Guest's name and send the Buyer a confirmation of such transfer by email. You hereby authorize Us to contact the applicable hotel and/or room provider on Your behalf to add the name or change the Reservation to the name of the Buyer or the new guest.
In consideration for providing the Service, Roomer may collect Service fees from Sellers (“Service Fees”). Service Fees are based upon a percentage of the amount the Seller is to receive for his sale of the Reservation to the Buyer on the Service. Where applicable, Taxes or other money transfer fees may also be deducted from the final sum paid to Seller.
Payment owed to Sellers for Reservations sold through the Service is held in trust by Roomer until 10 days after the buyer checks-out, to insure that Reservations are not sold to more than one person. When Sellers become eligible for payment, they will have the option of choosing a preferred method of payment from either Pay-Pal or wire transfer.
Buyers may purchase Reservations on the Service using a valid credit card. Roomer will charge the amount to your credit card immediatly. Once a Buyer pays for the Reservation, We will transfer the Reservation on the new Guest’s name and send Buyer a confirmation of such transfer by email. By using the Service, the Buyer provides his consent to Roomer to share the Buyer’s and/or Guest’s personal information with Reservations providers and/or hotels in order to change the Reservation to the name of the Guest.
In addition, we will hold the sums paid by the Buyer within an escrow, until 10 days after the buyer checks-out, in order to insure Reservations are not sold to additional persons after the sale.
Special requests or changes asked by a Buyer, requiring additional payment are subject to the terms herein. In Case we are unable to fulfil the special request or change, Buyer will be refunded in full for that additional payment. Special requests and changes in the Reservation booked are subject to availability and Roomer shall not be obligated to fulfil that special request.
We take great measures to insure the validity of Reservations made through the Service and prevent any mistakes or fraudulent activity with respect to the sale of Reservations on the Service; Nevertheless, to insure your peace of mind when purchasing a Reservation from a stranger through the Service and not directly from a hotel or travels agency, note that in the event that a Reservation you placed online is not honored by the hotel, you are entitled to certain compensation and remedies, as detailed in our "Buyer Protection Program" at https://www.roomertravel.com/buyer-protection
Reservations booked on Roomer are non-refundable. Roomer may offer You Flexible Cancelation ("Life Happens”) when You are booking the Reservation or thereafter (post sale). If You have not purchased Life Happens together with the Reservation, Roomer may send you an email to the address you provided when opening a Profile with Roomer, offering You to purchase Life Happens post sale. Life Happens allows Buyers to cancel their reservation up to 24 hours before scheduled check in date. Life Happens enables the Buyer to receive a flexible refund of the reservation price paid (excluding the Life Happens fee). The service applies only to a Buyer who purchases the Life Happens, PROVIDED HOWEVER THAT (I) BUYER WHO DID NOT PURCHASE LIFE HAPPENS SHALL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE SERVICE AND/OR GET A REFUND WHEN CANCELING ITS RESERVATION; AND (II) BUYER WHO BOOKS A RESERVATION WITHIN 24 HOURS BEFORE THE CHECK IN DATE SHALL NOT BE GIVEN THE OPTION TO PURCHASE LIFE HAPPENS.
Buyer may activate life Happens up to 24 hours before check in date and the credit card used to book the Reservation and/or purchase Life Happens shall be refunded according to the terms herein. If Buyer cancels less than 24 hours before check in date, the Reservation shall not be refundable.
The refund will be paid by Roomer 14 days from the time a Buyer activates the Life Happens by clicking the cancellation button on the "My Booking page".
In the event Buyer used Roomer Credits to book the Reservation, Roomer shall refund the proportionate payment out of the cash paid and Roomer Credits shall not be returned.
Once activating the Life Happens, the reservation will immediately become Roomer’s property and Roomer may use this Reservation in its sole discretion.
In order to prevent any fraudulent activity with respect to the purchase and sale of Reservations and/or the Service, Buyer and/or Seller that will misuse the protection, shall not be refunded and the fee paid to purchase the Life Happens shall not be returned.
The cancellation policy may be amended by Roomer in its sole discretion.
