Cancellation Policy Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why are you making this change?
R:
 Best Western® Hotels & Resorts has a loyal customer base which has been negatively impacted by the current climate. This change will give you the flexibility and peace of mind you need when making a reservation.


Q: I didn’t book through bestwestern.com, how do I cancel my reservation?
A:
 If you booked through an online travel agent or other third-party, you are advised to contact the original booking provider for information on their policies.


Q: I am trying on bestwestern.com to cancel an existing reservation I booked on that site, but the website is telling me that I can’t cancel the reservation. What should I do?
R:
 When you booked, your reservation had a specific cancellation policy. This new policy supersedes that policy. If you booked the reservation through Best Western’s Central Reservations Office or on bestwestern.com, we can assist with the cancellation. However, if you made the reservation at the hotel, you will need to contact the hotel. Additionally, if you made the reservation through an online travel agency (e.g .Expedia or Booking.com), you need to contact the online travel agency to cancel the reservation.


Q: Does the less restrictive cancellation policy apply to all future arrival dates?
A:
 Yes, the cancellation policy applies to all future arrival dates for reservations that are booked or changed, and then cancelled on or before May 30, 2020.
