Why can't I see Hotel Rates in tripBAM™?

tripBAM isn't your everyday online travel site - we offer a new way to shop for hotel rates.  Instead of scanning through hundreds of rooms and rates, you simply choose the hotels that you would stay and you tell tripBAM™ your desired rate.  

If we find your target rate within the constraints of your search request, we'll book it while the rate is still low.

When "shopping" for hotels, we keep it really simple by allowing you to focus on the hotels in the area you want with the amenities you like.  No need to scan hundreds of rates - once you've told us which hotels you'd be interested in booking, we'll do all the heavy lifting to scan the hundreds of hotel room rates available across all of the hotels you've defined in your "cluster".  

We'll continue to search until we find a better rate or come too close to check-in to make a change.  It's like a VIP travel agent but the service is completely free so you can't lose!
