Please note that we are not responsible for remitting tax to relevant tax bodies as hotel suppliers will invoice HEC for tax amount and hotel suppliers will hand over taxes applicable to relevant bodies.

Areas and locations have their different tax rates and in paying tax amounts, there could be slight differences from tax recovery amount based on taxability and rates. Hotels may attract different service fees based on hotel type and amount. You should be able to confirm reservation changes where you fail to turn up, and must do so in not more than 24hrs or face the risk of having your reservation cancelled, as there are various cancellation policy periods for different hotels.

You are mandated to make back payments for early checkouts or no shows within days after checking out.
