It makes booking accommodations easier by connecting travellers directly with property owners.

FlipKey provides a Payment Protection guarantee which allows guests to receive a full refund if the property is misrepresented or prevented or denied access to their rental when checking in. This covers up to $10,000 worth of protection depending on the currency used when booking.

FlipKey also has a Cooling-Off Period that enables travellers to cancel within 24 hours of booking without additional charges. This gives customers a better experience and added flexibility for more bookings. The cooling-off period only applies to booking that are 60 days or more away and after 24 hours, the chosen cancellation policy will be applied as normal.

In case a client cancels a trip due to circumstances such as family bereavement and medical conditions, the company recommends getting in touch with their travel insurance provider for guidance on the necessary documents to support their claim. Cancelling a booking is subject to the vacation rental owner’s cancellation policy conditions and Traveller’s terms of use which includes FlipKey’s Chargeback policy.
