Every year the hospitality industry sees $8.6 billion worth of non-refundable hotel room cancellations. The numbers are astounding, and if you have ever made such a cancellation you know how they eat into your wallet.

When you are planning a holiday or even a business trip, like most people, you too may be looking for the best deal. Often this means that you end up booking cheaper, non-refundable hotel rooms. This is great, until you find that you have a change of plans and will not be able to use the booking after all. This, of course means that you will lose money. You wish you had done things differently and say a few prayers hoping they could make the situation a little better. Well, your prayers and those of millions of hotel guests have been answered by Roomer, the online marketplace that specializes in buying and selling non-refundable hotel rooms.

Roomer works quite like eBay's StubHub does. You may have some experience in selling tickets to a game, concert or event because of change of plans at the very last minute. Instead of losing money on the tickets you would have sold them and recovered most of your money. Essentially Roomer does the same, but in this case guests are selling hotel reservations that they have paid for but cannot use. Buyers benefit from getting discounted hotel bookings. An additional benefit is that a buyer may be able to book a room even when the hotel says it is completely full.

How does it Work?

Roomer is not about making money on the hotel bookings that you cannot use. It is about recovering most of your money. The online travel marketplace has an automated system that validates every booking that is listed. This means that the buyer is protected and assured of the room that they intend to book.

The Seller: All that the seller needs to do is to list the non-refundable hotel room that they do not wish to cancel, and would rather sell the booking to another traveler. Once the basic booking

information has been provided, Roomer takes care of all the other details, including providing information about the hotel. Once a buyer books the room, the Roomer Reservation Transfers Department contacts the hotels and relevant travel agencies to update the names of the new guests. As a seller, this means that once you have listed your booking on Roomer you do not have to bother with any other details.

The Buyer: The biggest advantage that RoomerTravel.com offers travelers is the discounted prices that they can benefit from. They do not have to worry about being cheated out of their money as the company verifies all bookings that are listed and offers the relevant details. Once a buyer makes a hotel booking, Roomer immediately begins the task of informing the hotel regarding the transfer and takes care of all the related details. The guest does not have to bother with contacting the hotel, and on arrival they can use their own credit card information. They can expect to be greeted and treated just like any other guest would be.

Secure payment platform

When it comes to financial transactions, sellers and buyers are worried about money matters. The Roomer Vault boasts of a secure payment platform that ensures that sellers safely and promptly receive the money from the sale of their non-refundable hotel rooms. When a sale is finalized, the seller is immediately informed. The buyer pays for the booking and the money is held in the vault. It is transferred to the seller's account through a PayPal payment transfer 10 days after the date of check out.

It is a Win-Win Situation

Roomer offers both sellers and buyers of non-refundable hotel rooms a win-win situation. While one may think the hotel industry would be happy with paid cancellations, this is not really true. Everyone is upset with the situation, the guest ends up paying cancellation charges, the travel agent loses on their commission and the travel industry loses out on the income it would have otherwise earned from the food and beverage bills, and also from the additional amenity shopping.

Israel based Roomer, offers a perfect alternative to cancelling non-refundable hotel rooms.
