One quick tip to get £25 off your next stay with Booking.com

bill-anastas-241386

3 of the 6 times I booked a hotel for my 10 holiday challenge, Booking.com offered the best rates – NICE ONE LADS.

And so when they sent me an email to say ‘would you like to give how many holidays fan folk money off their next booking’ I was like ‘erm, yeah? What’s the catch?’.

But it turns out that apart from a minimum spend, there wasn’t one. Hurrah!

If your booking is between £40-£50, or over £250:

10% back: https://www.booking.com/s/12_6/8e0b574e
(£40 minimum spend)

If your booking is over £50 but under £250:

£25 backhttps://www.booking.com/s/how0ma64
(£50 minimum spend)

How you’ll get your money back

After checking in, your cashback will be credited back onto the card registered on your Booking.com account within 30 days. So, make sure you also set up an account with your card details saved, and the ‘use this card for my reward payments’ box ticked in your payment settings. Full terms can be found here.

There’s currently no expiry date on this offer and it even works if you’ve booked with the site in the past so why not save this page and keep it in mind for any upcoming jaunts.

You can only claim a referral once per account but if you’re booking for a second time and staying with someone else, why not set them up an account too?

PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve had an email saying you’re due to receive £0 instead of £25, do not fret! It’s just a comms glitch. Scroll to the bottom for further info.

It’s also worth saying that Booking.com isn’t just about hotels, I actually booked our amazing Gdańsk apartment through it as well (though pssst, that link won’t get you the money off!)

WHERE MA MONEY AAAAT?

You’re back from your trip and you want your money – I HEAR YOU!

First things first, if you’ve had an email saying you’re due to receive £0 back instead of the promised £25, don’t worry.

As long as you’ve followed the terms you will get your money back. It’s just a communications glitch (based on the fact that I get £0 back each time one of you books!) that the team are working to sort out.

Your money will be back in your account 30 days after you return home from your stay and you can track this by logging onto your Booking.com account and clicking on ‘My Dashboard’.

Then, click on ‘Refer friends and earn’ (or click that from the dropdown menu straightaway!) and scroll to the bottom where it says ‘All Bookings’ which should look a little something like this:

      1. Hi one more question: If I got a new account with a credit card that was used to receive money from other referred link, is it still eligible to get 25 pounds back? Many thanks.

      2. Hi Xi! It’s my belief that you’re allowed one referral per account. It could be my referral here, or another friends, but you couldn’t have both. However, if you had another account – say with your work email – you could technically use the referral code again. I hope that makes sense!

      1. Hi! I have the same problem. Now I am waiting for answer from booking. Have you an idea about the reason?

      2. So sorry this hasn’t worked for you! Unfortunately, you do need to take this up directly with Booking.com as I have no jurisdiction over what gets approved and why. I’d recommend giving customer.service@booking.com an email, or calling them on their customer services hotline: 0203 564 6725 . Good luck and please let me know if you get this resolved – would love to be able to help others that come across this similar problem. All the best!

    1. Hi Piotr – it seems that many refer a friend’s have been stopped. I have a contact at Booking.com and will look into this tomorrow to see if this will be going back up / if there will be a different code replacing it. All the best!

      1. You used to get one once you booked once that would get your friends £15 or 10% off and then you’d earn £15 however that seems to be gone as well. I got the £25 link because I was part of Booking.com’s influencer programme (though note, I wasn’t making any money per booking!)

      1. Hi

        I used your link for booking but after 3 weeks of verification it is look as transaction been declined. I really don’t know why is that. My booking was over £120
        Is this going to be paid as you described in article after 30 days and I should ignore this information?

        Regards

      3. I’ve been contacted with booking.com by phone and they couldn’t tell me why I did get this reward. They haven’t had any details. Just eligible and nothing else. Is there any other way to resolve this problem

  3. I tried to use the link twice with a brand new account (new email), I found the hotel I want but when I submit my credit card details I always get the following error message: “We’re sorry, we seem to have encountered an error when processing your request. To complete your booking, please contact our Customer Service team” (similar to this message: https://prnt.sc/mxwo71). Without using the referral link, booking can be done without any problem.

    Does anybody know what that means?

    1. Hi there – I’ve just tested this on a new account and it went through absolutely fine for me. I suggest trying to book with your new account using incognito/private browsing mode so that there’s no link to your previous account? Let me know how you get on. Thanks!

  4. Hey, I made a booking and it went through fine but now when I’ve checked my rewards it says “Not eligible – Friend already rewarded. You cannot claim a reward because your friend has already received a reward for another booking.” Do you know why?
