Any penalty (or negative consequences) for multiple cancellations?

    I have re-booked twice already for the same room after finding better deals on 3rd party sites. Just found a better rate through the TR page for Flamingo...any ideas of this can affect me negatively if I cancel and re-book a 3rd time? I'm well outside the 72 hour window for cancellations. I guess, given the choice, I'd rather be booked through the hotel itself and not a 3rd party.

    Not likely as it happens a lot. More common with folks switching properties than the same room tho. That's one advantage of booking directly with your resort. Some MAY have a surcharge for cancelling, but are usually upfront about it. Riviera, for example, a couple of years ago asked for the first night in advance and it was non-refundable. I don't know if this is still the case as I've been getting comped rooms with CET an MGM.

    I've seen some offers from MLife that said there is a charge for changing the reservation plus you have to watch if a reservation says it can't be cancelled. And Total Rewards has had for years that listed fee (that they don't seem to use, but can come up) where they can charge to change a phone reservation over the phone

    Flamingo has a best price guarantee where they will beat the lowest prices on 3rd party sites by 10%.

    But on topic, I've changed reservations multiple times and multiple hotels and never saw any problem. Always look at the fine print and make sure they offer free cancellations though.

    As long as you book refundable reservations, you'll be fine. I often book, rebook, double book and cancel without issue.

    I guess that all this thread talk is through various web sites. Has anyone found things like this booking through their host? Does your host get mad? A host can do lots of good things.

    If you have a host and actually warrant one I would expect this shouldn't be much of a problem because you are likely getting comped rooms up front and the only other question is what extras (slot/table play and food credits) you get to go with it.

    Just make sure it is refundable. Many times i book a non refundable room (in canada) if i am sure of where i want to stay, and that i will for sure be going. I watch prices and having worked in a hotel for a year i know what to look for and when it is what i will settle for i book. I also book if i know it won't go lower. Most places here do not have last minute price changes.
