Fancy a ~£65 (75 Euros) Booking.com discount off your next hotel stay? All you have to do is follow the steps below.
~£65 Booking.com Discount
75 Euros is worth roughly £65 at the moment.
Booking.com promotions are a bit odd, in that rather than discounting the amount charged before you pay, they ask you to pay the full amount and then refund whatever the promotion offered back to your card later. Strange, but it seems to work out ok. I would recommend taking screenshots as you book though, just in case there are any technical issues with the refund.
I wasn’t entirely certain the 75 Euro promotion would work with a UK based Booking.com account, so I did some tests and it seems absolutely fine. To add an extra layer of complexity, I even looked up some hotels in the USA and the site dealt with the various currency issues without any problems, consistently showing the promotion correctly on the final booking page.
In fact, it also helpfully lets you know what the minimum you need to spend to trigger the promotion is (in Pounds!), if your transaction hasn’t reached the threshold – at the time of writing £198.75:
If you’re not looking to spend so much, remember that the previous $40 off $80 offer might still be working too – have a read of details here.
Also, if you don’t already have an account with Booking.com, sign up here and you can get £15 back with your first stay of £30+ (I also get a referral bonus – so thanks!). Note that these offers don’t stack, you have to use them one at a time. The £15 signup bonus only applies to your first booking, while the other offers can be used any time, so if you’re making a number of different bookings it makes sense to start with the £15 offer first.
It’s a little unclear whether you can take advantage of the 75 Euro offer if you’ve already used the $40 one, but I think you can. If it’s showing up on the booking screen as above, I would personally be tempted to risk it – just be prepared to argue your case if required (take screenshots!).
The relevant terms state:
Within a reasonable time after your stay, you must either create a user account and save a valid credit card in the account settings or provide a valid credit card on the provided digital form in order to obtain the reward as a credit to your credit card — and the American Express card is not currently an accepted credit card (for receiving a credit).
Booking.com will only recognize one eligible reservation per participant per campaign to count for an incentive bonus; and you may only receive incentive bonuses from a maximum of three different campaigns per year — including Refer-a-Friend campaigns.
It’s good to see another variation of the Booking.com discount. For a company that did very little in terms of promotions for a long time, these offers are surprisingly generous.
Between the sign up bonus and the other promotions mentioned above, you could get a very nice deal indeed on your next few hotel stays (or break up a multiple night stay into separate bookings).
Always check hotel rates elsewhere too though, of course, and take into account the value you might be giving up in terms of Points/status benefits when not booking directly with a hotel group. For example, if I wanted to stay at a Radisson Blu / Park Plaza/ Park Inn/ etc any time soon, I’d still definitely book direct in order to make the most of the new ‘Free Friday’ promotion.
