Bei Choice Hotels gibt es noch immer eine Best Price Garantie mit der ersten Nacht kostenlos …
Diese enormen Best Price Garantie Versprechen – wie bei IHG es mal war – gehören der Vergangenheit an. Die meisten Marken haben in ein Modell mit Gutschein oder Rabatt umgestellt. Choice Hotels fährt für die internationalen User noch eine klassische Best Price Garantie. Internationale Choice Nutzer können alle 30 Tage einen Fall mit einer kostenlosen Nacht kassieren.
Wie immer sollte man sich auf stornierbare Buchungen konzentrieren. Wie immer ist die absolute genaue Kenntnis der Bedingungen unbedingt notwendig!
“Submitting a Claim: How it Works
You can submit a claim if:
You have confirmed a reservation with a valid credit card or debit card with sufficient funds made directly at a Choice Hotel property, online at ChoiceHotels.com or by calling 800.4CHOICE.
You submit your online claim form within 24 hours of the reservation booking and at least 48 hours prior to a 6:00 p.m. on the first day of your arrival
The difference between the Booking Rate (our published rate) and the Competing Rate (the rate you found online) must be equal to or greater than 1% or $1.00 U.S. (or the equivalent in the hotel’s currency), whichever is higher. “Fees” charged by the competing website must be included in the Competing Rate (for more information on this, see “Lowest Price Guarantee: Our Restrictions” section below.)
The Competing Rate must be:
Available for the same dates, room types, length of stay, type of currency is based on single or double occupancy with the same rate terms and restrictions. This includes, but is not limited to: advance purchase rates and requirements, pre-payment and deposit requirements, and cancellation and change policies.
Publicly viewable and available online on a third-party website and, as determined by Choice representatives, is lower than the rate offered on ChoiceHotels.com at the time the claim is reviewed by Choice by an amount greater than greater than 1% or $1.00 U.S. (or the equivalent until in the hotel’s currency).”
“WHAT RATES IT APPLIES TO: The Lowest Price Guarantee only applies to the following Choice rates: Best Available Rate, Advance Purchase, Choice Privileges membership, Choice Promotions, AAA, and Senior/AARP.
WHAT RATES IT DOESN’T APPLY TO: The Lowest Price Guarantee does not apply to:
Negotiated rates or any other rates not available to the general public, such as group rates, package rates, coupons, membership rates not explicitly listed above, Government Rates, and military rate;
Rates found on opaque or auction sites and other sites where the hotel brand and specific hotel are not known until the Booking is made;
Taxes (except where the rate is tax inclusive), gratuities, guest incidental charges or any other similar charges incurred at the hotel. If the Choice Booking rate is displayed as a tax-inclusive rate, then as noted above, it must be compared to a Competing Rate on a relative basis, so either taxes must be added/included in the Competing Rate or subtracted from the Booking rate. If the Competing Rate is lower by more than $1.00/1%, then Choice will approve the claim, and will match the Competing Rate at the pre-tax base rate for the remainder of a multi-night stay (taxes will be charged on top of this rate);
Bookings for 10 or more rooms;*
Bookings made by travel agents or brokers; and
Bookings at Woodspring Suites, Vacation Rentals by Choice, and Ascend Hotel Collection properties in Las Vegas, NV that include a casino
SITES THAT INCLUDE FEES: Some online travel sites classify part of their rates as a “fee”, instead of including it within the room rate. For example, a hotel will provide the travel site a rate of $75. That travel site will then list the rate as $70 and claim that there is an additional $5 fee, so that their room rate appears lower to the consumer, even though the total price paid is the same. So if you found a Competing Rate on a Third-Party Website that classifies part of their actual rates as “fees” then that Competing Rate must include any additional fees so that the Competing Rate and our Booking Rate can be compared on a relative “apples to apples” basis.
GUARANTEE DOES NOT INCLUDE OTHER CHOICE DIRECT CHANNEL RATES: If there is a rate available on a Choice Direct Channel that is the same or lower than the Competing Rate, that rate will be offered for the entire Booking. U.S. or Canada residents, however, are not eligible to receive the Reward Card and international residents elsewhere are not eligible to receive the free night for variations in pricing on a Choice Direct Channel.
LIMIT OF ONE CLAIM PER STAY: You may only submit one claim for each stay. A “stay” is defined as any number of consecutive nights at one hotel regardless of check-ins or check-outs by the same guest(s).
Reward Matrix: All guests with approved claims will receive the matched Competing Rate. Reward cards and free nights will be applied based on the following:
U.S. Resident / Canada Resident / International Resident
U.S./Canada Hotel Location $50 USD / Reward Card $50 CAD Reward Card / Free Room Night
International Hotel Location $50 USD Reward Card / $50 CAD Reward Card / Free Room Night
LIMIT OF ONE CLAIM EVERY 30 DAYS: $50 Reward Card Limit for U.S. and Canada residents: A person may submit a claim once every thirty (30) days between check-in dates (one claim per name or household only). Additionally, a guest will receive a maximum of one reward card per reservation for one to nine rooms*, regardless of the number of rooms booked. (Example: CRS confirmation number 54689875 for Mr. Smith is for 6 rooms for 5 nights. Mr. Smith will receive one $50 Reward Card, for one of the six rooms reserved.). (*Reservations of 10 or more rooms are available for the Low Price Gaurantee.)
FREE NIGHT LIMIT FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: A person may submit a claim once every thirty (30) days between check-in dates (one claim per name or household only). Additionally, a guest will receive a maximum of one free room night per reservation for one to nine rooms*, regardless of the number of rooms booked. (Example: CRS confirmation number 54689875 for Mr. Smith is for 6 rooms for 5 nights. Mr. Smith will receive one free night, for one of the six rooms reserved).
BOOKS ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE: After a Booking claim has been approved, the Booking is not transferrable. The name on the Booking must match the name on the guest’s photo ID at the time of check-in.
Employees of Choice, any affiliate or franchised hotel, company, their immediate family members and individuals that live in the same household are not eligible for the Lowest Price Guarantee.
Abuse of Lowest Price Guarantee: Choice reserves the right to cancel a previously approved claim if it finds that a customer violated or circumvented these terms & conditions and to reject future Lowest Price Guarantee claims from any such customer.
