Alpharooms' guide to $20.00 hotel and transfer deposits


How does it work?

On selected hotel bookings over $120.00 we are only asking for a $20.00 payment to secure your booking at today's prices. You will receive full confirmation of your booking as soon as the $20.00 payment has been processed.

How much will I pay today?

You will have to pay the full price of your flight, travel insurance, car hire, and airport parking if you are purchasing these at the time of booking, as well as any booking fees that may be applicable to your itinerary. These are conditions enforced by the airlines and our holiday extras providers. Your accommodation, and any airport transfers you have booked, will be covered by your initial $20.00 payment.


When will I be expected to pay the balance of the deposit?

The deposit top-ups are due 30 days and 60 days from the booking date. The final balance is due 14 days before you travel.

Your payment method will be securely stored by our payment provider and, if the balance has not already been paid off by the due date, we will attempt to automatically process a payment for each of the monthly instalments on the 1st of every month after your booking date along with any applicable payment fees. Please ensure you have the funds available for these transactions to complete or your booking may be cancelled and any cancellation charges will be applicable. To pay off the outstanding monthly instalments, you can do so from the 'My Account' area of the website. Please note each payment will incur an admin fee of £4.95



Will I be affected by price changes?

No. When you pay your $20.00 deposit you are securing your booking at that price, any changes will not have an effect on your final balance.


Can I cancel my booking?

In the event of cancellation you will be liable for the applicable cancellation charges and a cancellation fee of $30 per person. You can cancel your booking as per our Agency Terms of Business.
