Making a booking
How can I make a booking?
Bookings can be made online or over the telephone 24 hours a day. Reserving a room online is the quickest method of making a booking. Sometimes a small number of properties featured on CheapFlightHouse, such as smaller guest houses, cannot offer a lot of online availability due to the risk of overbooking. This means that we can still offer you the great value prices, but you may need to telephone us to make the booking instead.
Any special requests you make online are sent to the hotel but cannot be guaranteed. If you have any additional questions or specific requests you will find our call centre 24/7 to be most efficient. All the prices you see on the website are the same online as they are over the phone; you simply pay for the phone call.
How much is the cost of a call?
To make it easier for you contact us we have introduced some additional national rate number for our key source market. Details of these can be found on our Contact Us page.
Do I get charged a booking fee?
No, the CheapFlightHouse service is completely free - we'll never charge you.

No. The credit card used at the time of making your reservation is only used to secure your booking. You can pay using the same, a different card or by cash at the hotel.

Prices and Payment
Do I make payment with you or the hotel?
CheapFlightHouse will never debit your card. Most of the hotels featured on the site require you to pay in full either on arrival or departure; your card details are simply taken to secure your booking.
Each hotel's individual cancellation policy will inform you whether they require a deposit or full pre-payment.
Why do you take my credit card details if you do not charge my card?
Although CheapFlightHouse will never take payment from you, we do need to take your credit card details to secure your booking with the hotel.
The normal procedure is to pay the hotel on arrival/departure using a credit/debit card. Upon booking your card will usually be pre-authorised by the accommodation provider, however payment will only be taken if you fail to arrive at the hotel and you have not cancelled your reservation, or you fail to cancel your booking in accordance with the hotel's cancellation policy.
Some of our accommodation providers do offer special pre-pay rates that are often discounted more than usual. These rates will be charged to your card at the time of booking and cannot usually be cancelled or amended. Please ensure you check the properties cancellation policy before you book.
What currency will I have to pay in?
The currency which you make payment will be the currency of the country where your chosen hotel is located.
How to you calculate exchange rates?
Due to the fluctuating nature of currency exchange we are unable to quote a specific exchange rate. To find out the current exchange rate, we recommend that you check with your bank or a foreign exchange agent however these differ day to day and the price your bookings is confirmed at is what you will pay at the hotel, however CheapFlightHouse has no control over changing of exchange rates therefore you may find the exchange rate changes from your booking date to arrival.
What cards are accepted to secure my reservation?
The majority of all properties featured on CheapFlightHouse accept all leading credit/ debit cards including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Each property featured on CheapFlightHouse differs, and many also accept other leading credit/debit cards. You can check which cards are accepted by the hotel once you are ready to book and proceed to the payment details.
If you experience any problems trying to make a reservation using your card please contact one of our reservation agents who will assist you in reserving your room.
Are the rates on your site per person or per room?
All rates advertised on CheapFlightHouse are per room per night.
Are taxes included in the rate?
All taxes and service charges are included in the rate unless otherwise stated. Some Countries will charge tourist tax which will not be included in the room rate. In these cases, the hotel will specify the extra charge with their room details.
Why do the prices differ by day or from the last time I checked the website?
CheapFlightHouse is all about getting our customers a great room at a great rate. Hotels will vary their prices depending on how busy they are, which can mean hotels will offer different rates for different dates.
Because the hotels have complete control over the rates and availability they offer, prices can fluctuate at anytime, even right up to the moment of your stay. However, the price you have booked is always the price you will pay.
Is breakfast included in the rate?
Not all hotels will offer breakfast in their room rate. All rates vary greatly between each hotel, especially what is included in the offer price. For example, room only, bed and breakfast, dinner, bed and breakfast.
Each hotel is very clear on what the room rate includes. Once on the hotel's details page, each room type displayed will state what is included in the price you pay.
What should I do if my credit card number is correct but my card is not being accepted?
The majority of hotels featured on CheapFlightHouse accept all leading credit/debit cards, however every hotel differs and it may be that the hotel you are trying to book does not accept the card you are trying to use.
You can check the cards types that the hotel accepts while on the booking form page, just below where you type your card details. Alternatively, please try using a different card or call us and one of our reservation agents will be able to assist you.
Can I be invoiced for my reservation?
Unfortunately CheapFlightHouse cannot provide any invoices for bookings made as we do not take payment from you. You can however request an invoice to be provided from the hotel once the reservation has been paid in full - usually upon check-in or check-out. If you have booked a hotel which requires full pre-payment you can contact them before your arrival date to request a invoice.
Do you charge a credit/debit card fee?
No. CheapFlightHouse do not charge any credit/debit card fees. We provide a completely free booking service. However, some hotels may charge credit/debit fees if using this method to make payment. You can enquire about extra fees with the hotel direct once reservations have been made or by contacting our call centre.
How do I know your site is secure?

What do you do with my personal information?
Your personal information and card details will be passed on to the hotel so they can process your reservation, but nowhere else. Any information entered into the online booking page or given over the telephone is securely encrypted and protects your personal information from being tampered with. We will keep your card details expect your security code and booking information on file indefinitely after you have made a reservation. This is to assist in any customer service issues that may arise and to ensure that we meet any legal requirements relating to tax, etc.
