[QUOTE=jo-jo;978983]I was planning on booking a room for him but he is not 100% sure he can go. So I only wanted to book something that could be canceled a few months done the road. And if he doesn’t go, he doesn’t need the AP. I know the voucher would be good forever, but he doesn’t have the money right now. If his wife’s temp job, turns full time, they will be going.
The thing is, if he needs the AP now, what’s the advantage of me booking 3 rooms?[/QUOTE]
You’re making a room only reservation, so that requires a deposit equal to one day in the room. If you cancel his reservation, even if it’s 24 hours before arrival, kick the can down the road and change the reservation to a later date. The only downside is that you’ll need to pay any difference between the rate you reserved at and the rack rate for the new date, unless they’ve already released a discounted price for the new date.
I’m not sure, but I think you can cancel and get a full refund of the deposit if you cancel up until 72 hours before check in.
