Roomer helps buyers get a great deal on hotel rooms while sellers avoid cancellation fees.
Roomer benefits two types of people: those that need to get rid of a hotel room that they’ve already booked and paid for, and those that need to find a great deal on a hotel room. The site connects those individuals, allowing people to book hotel rooms from people that can’t use theirs. The site seeks to end the cancellation fees associated with pre-paid hotel rooms. If you’re forced to cancel a vacation, the last thing you want to do is pay for a hotel room that you can’t use. To sell a hotel room through Roomer, you simply have to submit basic details about your reservation (the site automatically adds all the extra images and details about the hotel). After someone books your room through the service, Roomer directly contacts the hotel or booking agency in order to change the name on the reservation. Roomer also has a payment guarantee, so the funds are directly transferred after someone books your room.
The process is similar for those buying hotel rooms through Roomer. The service is also designed in a manner similar to other popular hotel aggregating sites like Priceline or Hotwire that makes it easy to discover exactly what you’re looking for. Roomer works with hotels around the world, so you simply need to type in your preferred location and check-in/check-out dates before a lengthy list of options is displayed. You can filter rooms by map, budget, star rating, or TripAdvisor review. Because almost every room available through Roomer comes with some sort of deal, the amount of money you’d save by booking through the service is also clearly displayed. There’s even a section on the site for Last Minute Deals, which features hotel rooms around the world with significantly marked down prices if you’re able to book them at the last minute. The service Roomer offers is unique, but it benefits everyone that uses it. It’s worth checking out whether you’re a buyer or a seller.
