2.1. Guaranteed booking
Your booking will be fully guaranteed as soon as your stay is paid for, either directly in cash at the hotel, or when you provide your credit/debit card details to secure payment (unless the card details are not valid).
Providing your credit/debit card details to pay for your booking does not imply you will be charged for the nights you have booked, but it does authorise the hotel to charge you for the first night’s stay in the event of a no-show, if the booking has not already been cancelled (in the case of bookings with free cancellation).
An e-mail with a booking number will be sent to the e-mail address you have given the hotel for all guaranteed bookings.

These offers, which are only available on the official www.hotel-bb.com website or through B&B Hotels commercial partners, cannot be combined with other discounts, and cannot be cancelled, refunded, or changed (including rooms and any additional services).
As these are "non-refundable" bookings, 100% of the total amount of the booking will be charged at the time it is made, unless expressly stated in the terms of the offer, and this amount shall not be refunded under any circumstances (including rooms and any additional services).
In the event of a no-show by the customer on the scheduled date of arrival, and even if the hotel is notified by any means, the bookings hall be cancelled in full, and the hotel shall reserve the right to charge the total amount of the booking to cover cancellation costs and damages.
In this case, the establishment's obligation to honour the booking will terminate when the room is not occupied within the agreed timeframe, unless the customer confirms their definite arrival within this timeframe.
