Found a lower rate but not booked by tripBAM?

Our mission is to find the best rate at the best hotel, every time.   Occasionally, a traveler will find a rate at a hotel that is less than the rate booked by tripBAM at the same hotel and for the same room.  Most often, the reason is:

  • the rate outside of tripBAM requires prepayment or a deposit
  • the rate is non-refundable.  tripBAM only books flexible rates that don't require a deposit and can be easily cancelled.   
  • the rates are part of a negotiated rate program such as AAA, AARP, military/government, etc.  If you quality for these rates, be sure and select those options on the search options page and in your profile. 
Finally, if everything looks the same, please send us feedback and we will research the issue.
