Are my personal details kept private?
Your personal details, such as name, booking details and email, are completely private and will not be used in conjunction with any issue other than your booking and use of WorldRes. WorldRes and the hotel only know these details.
What does it cost to book online?

A deposit is usually required to confirm your booking, this will be clearly indicated to you and will be debited from your credit card at the time of completion of the booking. Please note that the deposits are non-refundable. In the event of you not turning up or not cancelling on time, the Hotel may redeem the full cost of your booking.
How can I contact My chosen Hotel?
As an online hotel reservation service, our customers book online to avoid the time, effort and expenses that are required to reserve accommodations by telephone.
We encourage all WorldRes hotels to include as much information as possible on our site and strive to provide the largest amount of information available about our hotels online. If you wish to contact a hotel directly, simply refer to the contact information in your e-mail reservation confirmation. This is sent to you when you make reservation(s).
Hotel contact information, including telephone, fax numbers and e-mail addresses are only provided once the reservation is confirmed
If you recently made an online reservation and it was confirmed, you should have received an e-mail confirmation. This e-mail includes your confirmation code and is generated minutes after making your reservation. Simultaneously, a record of this confirmation is sent to the hotel.
If you did not receive an e-mail from WorldRes, one of two things may have happened:
- Your e-mail address is listed in our system incorrectly
- Your reservation was not confirmed successfully
There are a few ways to confirm your reservation:
- Go back to the main page of the Web site you originally made your reservation from and click on "Modify Reservation." You can view any outstanding reservations in your name.
- Call the hotel directly and confirm that they have a record of your online reservation. Please keep in mind, that it may take 24 to 48 hours for a hotel to enter your reservation into their system.
If you have further questions or need additional assistance with your online reservation(s), please email us at email@example.com.
What happens if I need to cancel or change my reservations?
Information on cancelling or changing your booking will be contained the confirmation email you receive after your booking has been made. Please note that you must agree with the property's specific cancellation policy as part of the booking process.
