Hotel Cancellation Guide

How do I sell my hotel room?

If you find yourself about to lose a lot of money due to a change in travel plans, the best thing to do is sell your hotel reservation online with Roomer, the secondary marketplace for buying and selling hotel room reservations. Although we’ve made selling hotel rooms very easy and straightforward, there are a few things that you can do to increase your chances of selling your hotel reservation.

How can I sell my hotel reservation?

Create a Roomer listing to resell your hotel reservation. It's quick and easy!

  • Fill out our short reservation sell form, where you tell us all the information about the hotel room you want to sell. This is extremely easy and only takes a few minutes.

  • In order to validate your reservation, we then ask you to forward us the confirmation email you received for your original booking.

  • We then validate your room and sell your hotel room on our site! A buyer will then hopefully come along and buy your room, and the process is complete!

How can I increase the chances that I resell my hotel reservation?

Share, share, share!

  • Spread the word that you’re selling your hotel room by posting a link to your listing on your social media pages, such as Facebook and Twitter.

  • Post a link to your Roomer listing in forums around the web, such as Craigslist and TripAdvisor.

  • Don't worry, however; the chances that you sell your reservation on Roomer are high, and only increasing every day.

What price should I ask for when I sell my hotel room?

Competitive pricing is very important.

  • The reason Roomer is so appealing to buyers is that sellers generally put discounts on their reservations.

  • This is the case because sellers prefer to recuperate some of their losses, rather than be stuck with a hotel room they cannot use.

  • The bigger the discount, the higher the chances that you’ll sell your hotel reservation. Therefore, we advise that you sell your hotel reservation for at least 20% off the market price of the hotel room.
