Selling on Cancelon

Selling a Traveler Deal

A listing can be removed for two reasons:

i) if your reservation doesn’t meet all of our requirements during the verification process or any information provided is incorrect  

ii) if your deal is not sold up to one day prior to the check-in date, it will be removed as there is not enough time to carry out the transfer process from seller to buyer with the hotel.

You can sell your hotel reservation by entering the details on the Cancelon website here.

Please note that in order for your reservation to be viable for sale, it must be a valid booking that is prepaid and non-refundable (must be listed for sale over 48 hours prior to check-in).

Once you have entered all the details of the hotel reservation on the Cancelon site, the reservation will undergo a verification process. Once verified, we will post the reservation on and it will go live and be available for purchase.  

When a buyer is found, they can either accept the price shown or suggest another price. Once a price has been accepted by both parties, we will contact the hotel to change the name on the reservation. For more information please visit our support page found here.

In order for your reservation to be viable for sale, it must be a valid booking that is prepaid and non-refundable and listed within 48 hours of the check in date.

Currently, reservations sold on Cancelon must be sold for the exact dates of the original reservation booked. This is because hotels do not allow you to split an existing booking between two different traveling parties.

You will need to create a listing for each room separately. This will also increase the probability of a successful sale.

You can view, edit and remove your listings by going to ‘My Account’ and then clicking on‘My Listings’.

You can continue to modify your reservation as long as it has not yet been booked by another customer. We will notify you by email once your listing has been booked by someone else.

In order to increase your chances of selling your reservation, we recommend pricing your listing at least 20% lower than current market prices. We also recommend lowering your price as check in gets closer. This will increase your chances of selling it.

We recommend pricing your listing at least 20% lower than current market prices. Also, our data shows that sharing your posted reservation on social media increases your chances of selling by at least 30%, depending on the number of followers you have.

Once the reservation has been verified and a buyer has been secured, with the sellers permission we will contact the hotel on the sellers behalf and change the name on the reservation.

Currently our platform allows the purchase of a reservation as one unit only and does not allow the splitting of a reservation. However, as Cancelon's prices are VERY competitive, in many cases buying a 4 night reservation on Cancelon and only using 3 would be cheaper than buying from another online booking site.
