BEST RATE GUARANTEE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We guarantee you the best available rate when you book a room through our official website when you sign up for private offers / exclusive discount. If you find a lower publicly available rate (“Lower Rate”) elsewhere within 24 hours of making your booking, we will match the lower rate, subject to the following terms and conditions:
1. Reservations must be made through our official website (www.bigbluehotel.com).
2. The Lower Rate must be for the same type of accommodation, which means the same room type, with the same dates and length of stay, same number of guests, same designation as either cancellable or non-cancellable, same advance purchase policies and the same terms and conditions governing the room rate including deposit and cancellation policy.
3. You must submit your claim within 24 hours of the reservation being made with the Big Blue Hotel and at least 72 hours before the standard check-in time.
4. You may submit only one claim for each stay. A “stay” means the total number of consecutive nights spent at the Big Blue Hotel by the same guest or guests. You must complete the stay.
5. The Big Blue Hotel reserves the right to deny a claim, if it cannot independently verify the availability of a Lower Rate at the time it processes the claim. The Lower Rate must be bookable on another website. Advertised or enquiry only rates do not qualify.

8. The Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where The Big Blue Hotel website or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond our reasonable control.
9. Any disputes arising out of or related to the Best Rate Guarantee or these terms and conditions shall be handled individually without any class action, and shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with English law.
10. The Big Blue Hotel reserves the right to amend, revise, supplement, suspend or discontinue the Best Rate Guarantee program and the terms and conditions at anytime in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
