Best Price Guaranteed for Direct Bookings


Take advantage of our Best Price Guarantee quickly and easily if your room at one of our hotels is available to book on another website at a cheaper price than we are offering on our own official site. Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Make your booking on and keep your booking confirmation;
  2. Fill in the form below and send it to us with a screenshot or image of the cheaper price that you found;
  3. Wait for our team to contact you with details of your new price and your new booking number.

See how it works below:

Let’s say you were booking a three-night stay at a Details Hotels & Resorts hotel for €280. As you were finalising your booking, you found the same hotel and room type for the same date and the same number of people for €210 on another site.

Take a screenshot of that offer, fill in the form on this page (taking the terms and conditions into account) and wait for us to contact you. We will let you know how much of a discount you will receive to match the lower rate that you found.

That will be the amount that you pay at the check-out of your booking.
