What happens if the hotel cancels my booking (booking.com) because I failed to make pre-payment in time? Will they still charge my bank card as if I had made the cancellation?
I didn’t get the hotel’s email with the payment instructions in time (it got in my spam folder) and now I’ve received a message that the hotel has cancelled the booking. I’m on holiday and I can’t check my balance but it’d be good to know if I’ll still pay the full price (as it would be the case if I cancelled the room). Thanks for any info.
Edit (after being asked in comment: What did your booking T&C say about cancellation/prepayment etc?):
It says "This is a non-refundable reservation. If you choose to cancel you will not be refunded. Changing the dates of your stay is not possible." And also "The property requires prepayment via PayPal. Guests will receive a direct email from the property within 24 hours of booking with the PayPal link. To confirm the reservation, payment must be made within 48 hours once email is received."
This is what I did not do in time and the booking was cancelled by the hotel.
