RootRez may at any time modify these Terms and Conditions, and your continued use of this site will be conditioned upon the Terms and Conditions in force at the time of your use.
Data Protection and Privacy
RootRez acts as a booking agent for the hotel it books on your behalf. When you make a booking, you are entering into a contract with the hotel via RootRez, not with RootRez itself. As an agent we accept no responsibility for the acts or omissions of the hotel or for the services provided by the hotel. The hotel’s terms & conditions and deposit and cancellation policies will apply to your booking, and we advise you to read these carefully as they do contain important information about your booking. We will always provide the hotel’s deposit and cancellation policies prior to booking, which you must agree to in order to complete a booking.
For your security, payments online are made through secure servers. For all Hotel bookings, RootRez will take a credit card number that is forwarded securely to the hotel to guarantee your booking. .
Any advance deposits, additional fees or charges will always be clearly marked before you complete your booking. Once paid, these deposit payments, additional charges and fees may be non-refundable in the event of cancellation, as outlined within the hotel’s deposit and cancellation policies, which you must agree to at the time of booking.
Upon completing your booking, your reservation is immediately confirmed and a contract between you and the hotel will exist when we send you confirmation on their behalf. Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to us immediately. As we act only as booking agent, we have no responsibility for any errors in any documentation except where an error is made by us.
Your credit card information will be stored in our servers until a week after your completed booking, where it will be purged from our system.
All currency conversions are based on data from various publicly available sources and are only valid on the date of booking as a guideline. Payments are taken by hotels in the hotel's local currency and may be subject to exchange-rate fluctuations (depending on the date charged) and charges from your bank or credit card issuer for which we have no liability.
Please note, any applicable VAT/taxes may be subject to change at any time.
Hotel’s Amendment & Cancellation Policy
If you wish to amend or cancel a confirmed booking, you must contact us or the hotel directly. If you choose to amend the booking, changes in rate may apply. You will be responsible for the new rate for the added or changed days. In all cases, once the booking is confirmed, you are subject to conditions of that hotel’s deposit and cancellation policies.
Hotel deposit and cancellation policies may outline a period before check-in when payments may be due prior to arrival, and cancellations may be subject to payment of a cancellation charge. Refer to the hotel’s deposit and cancellation policies prior to booking, as well as outlined in your confirmation email.
Any refunds, when applicable, will be made directly by the hotel, as the hotel is the Merchant of Record (MOR). At no time will RootRez charge your credit card.
Any changes to a booking that involve the addition of sequential nights to a stay will be considered an amendment to the original booking, regardless of whether the extra nights are booked by the person who made the original booking, or by another guest with whom they are staying.
Changes and Cancellations by the Hotel
We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the hotel needs to make a significant change to your confirmed booking or to cancel. We will also liaise between you and the hotel in relation to any alternative arrangements offered by the hotel but we will have no further liability to you. The Hotel maintains liability of honoring your booking and/or finding alternate accommodations of similar quality.
Accuracy of Hotel Prices & Descriptions
RootRez cannot be held liable for errors or omissions in bookings or pricing, either made by the hotel, or as a result of system failure of any kind. We reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. You must check the price of your chosen arrangements at the time of booking.
We do our utmost to ensure all RootRez hotel information is accurate, however, hotel facilities may change at any time and any opinions expressed are subjective.
Our Responsibility for Your Hotel Booking
Your contract is with the hotel and its terms and conditions apply. As agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the arrangements. Our responsibilities are limited to making the booking in accordance with your instructions. We accept no responsibility for any information about the arrangements that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of the commission we earn on your booking.
Our Exclusive Hotel Deals & Offers
Bookings for RootRez’s exclusive hotel offers or promotions are subject to the terms and conditions set by the hotel for its particular offer. All offers are on request and subject to availability which may change at any time. Offers may be subject to blackout dates which may be amended by the hotel at any time. Some hotels will require a deposit or full prepayment on booking, which may be non-refundable in case of cancellation. Any special terms will be stated on the booking and included in your confirmation. Hotel offers and promotions (and any applicable terms and conditions) are frequently added or amended, and will therefore only apply to completely new bookings. Reservations made before the start of the offer or promotion cannot be cancelled and rebooked at the lower rate.
Because the contract for your arrangements is between you and the hotel, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. If you have a problem during your stay, this must be reported to the hotel immediately. If you fail to follow this procedure, there will be less opportunity for the hotel to investigate and rectify your complaint. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to may therefore be reduced or extinguished as a result.
If you still wish to complain when you return home, you can contact us and we will liaise between you and the hotel in order to try to resolve your complaint. Please note that we do this as part of our customer service to you and as a gesture of goodwill only. We do not accept responsibility for dealing with complaints, nor do we have any liability for refunds or compensation.
Any refunds, will applicable, will be made directly by the hotel, as the hotel is the Merchant of Record (MOR). At no time will RootRez charge your credit card.
If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the supplier, but we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.

These are intended to give a guide to the services and facilities you should expect from your accommodation. Standards and ratings may vary between countries, as well as between suppliers.

All guests staying at a hotel booked through us are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly and acceptable manner and not to disrupt the enjoyment of other guests. If in our opinion or in the opinion of any hotel manager or any other person in authority, your behavior or that of any member of your party is causing or is likely to cause distress, danger or annoyance to any of our other guests or any third party or damage to property, or to cause a delay or diversion to transportation, we reserve the right to terminate your booking arrangements with us immediately. In the event of such termination our liability to you and/or your party will cease and you and/or your party will be required to leave your accommodation or other service immediately. We will have no further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost accommodation or any other service will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of termination. You and/or your party may also be required to pay for loss and/or damage caused by your actions and we will hold you and each member of your party jointly and individually liable for any damage or losses caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or losses must be paid directly to the hotel manager or other supplier prior to departure from the hotel. If you fail to make payment, you will be responsible for meeting any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions together with all costs we incur in pursuing any claim against you. We cannot be held responsible for the actions or behavior of other guests or individuals who have no connection with your booking arrangements or with us.
