Secure Credit Card Payments

If we can verify your claim then we will match or better the other offer.

Please ensure to include the full website address as well as proof of availability (such as a confirmation email) in your claim or we will be unable to verify it. Please note that this applies to bookings that have not yet been paid.



Start with a deposit
Unlike other travel websites, in most cases, we only require a small deposit if you wish to confirm an available room. The balance will typically be payable 31 days prior to your arrival at the hotel.



Safe Shopping Guarantee

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS (FAQ)


How do I find and reserve a hotel with your service?
Simply select the destination of your choice from the menu and you'll see a selection of hotels that can be sorted by many different factors including type, location, rate, hotel type and so forth. You can also use our Hotel Search function to find your favorite hotel. Type the name of the hotel you're looking for in the search box and our internal search engine will provide results that match your criteria. If we don't have the hotel you are looking for, we'll offer lots of suitable alternatives. The hotels we offer are in the 2-star to 5-star categories. We usually provide photographs of important features such as the exterior, the rooms, dining and recreational facilities. Important amenities and other facilities will be listed on each hotel page. Each hotel's rate page lists our special discounted rates which are all per room, not per person. Then go to our booking form to make your reservaton. Also, be sure to make your reservation for the full duration of your stay. If you do need to extend your stay after arrival, please contact our Customer Service agents so you're not charged the hotel's full rate.



What happens when my reservation is placed?
1) In order to get you the best room we contact the hotel's reservation department and request the room. We do not work with instant confirmation as this often means "run of the house" or the lower quality rooms within the individual hotels.. Even for a specific category there can still be differences in the quality, i.e. a one Superior Room may not be as good as another Superior Room.  Even so, we can confirm a reservation within 12-18 hours.

2) If a room is available and you submit your credit card details and agree to the booking conditions on the booking form, then the reservation is confirmed and a hotel voucher will be automatically sent to your e-mail address after fraud verification. The hotel voucher will only be issued after we have received and charged your credit card information. The hotel voucher must be presented upon check-in at the hotel.



Can I make a reservation directly through the hotel?
The rates listed on our websites are only available through our service. Rates offered directly from hotels are 50% - 75% higher.



How long does it take to check if a room is available?
We usually confirm a reservation within 12 hours.



Are your hotel rates per room or per person?
The rates displayed are per room, NOT per person. As a general policy, hotels allow two adults per room and one child under 12 years of age.



What is the hotel policy for children?
Most hotels allow children to stay in the room with parents either with or without an extra bed. The normal hotel policy is not to charge for children if they are under twelve years of age. Some hotels will limit occupancy of a room to two adults and one child. Only a few hotels will have existing bedding for additional children, so an extra bed is usually required. Some hotels will charge for this extra bed.



What is your credit card payment procedure and how safe is it?
We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all information. All secure transactions take place on our secure server. All payments are subject to credit card surcharge.



Why do I need to provide additional documents during the payment process?
In relatively infrequent cases we require additional documents, such as a faxed copy of the credit card, to support a booking. This may occur when the guest name differs from the cardholder; when the acquiring bank for the credit card transaction requires this, when the booking is deemed high value, or when our Fraud Protection program identifies a high-risk transaction.



What is your cancellation policy for hotel reservations?
Please see click the green tab alone saying "cancellations & other terms".



Who operates your websites?
www.giliresorts.com is a fully bonded travel agent with The Tourism Authority of Thailand and affiliated with PATA (Pan Pacific Travel Association) and therefore fully licensed to operate in Asia. We are also fully registered with the Thailand Ecommerce Board and The Department of Commerce.



I have made a payment but my control panel does not show it, why?
If your payment was made within normal business hours, usually the status will be updated very quickly. However, from time to time your account may be updated slower due to many smaller hotels not being open outside normal business hours and on occasion only having one person process their reservations. We will do our best to finalize the booking as soon as possible. We also carefully double check your reservation details to ensure everything is to your satisfaction.



I want to shorten my stay, how?
If you wish to shorten your stay and have not yet made any payment, then simply edit your booking using your control panel, by logging in. If you have already made a payment towards your booking and the booking is confirmed then shortening your stay is considered a partial cancellation and our usual cancellation terms apply. Please see the cancellation tab aboce.



I want to extend my stay, how?
If you wish to extend your stay and have not yet made any payment, then simply edit your booking using your control panel.

Deposit Paid
If you have already made a deposit payment towards your booking and the booking is confirmed then please email us and we will check availability of your request and add the extra nights for you.

Fully Paid
If you have already paid the booking in full, it is easiest to simply make a new booking online from the hotel page.



What if I don't like the hotel when I arrive there?
From time to time perceptions regarding a specific hotel may lead to dissappointment. All the details on our website are supplied by the hotels and as such we cannot be responsible for any inconsistencies nor misconceptions on your part. However, we will of course try to work with the hotel you have booked, to remedy any details you are not satisfied with

In all cases it is imperative that:
If you experience any problem on arrival or during your stay, that you MUST contact us while on location. We CANNOT help you if you consequently contact us with complaints about service, conditions and so forth once you have returned home.



My duration of stay has changed compared to what I ask for when I login, why?
Many hotels require a booking to have a minimum number of nights in order to accept the booking. This is during special events, holiday and peak season periods and so forth. Our reservation staff strive to edit your bookings proactively if during the reservation process the correct number of nights were not chosen.



When I login, the hotel I requested is not the hotel showing in my account, why?
We always strive to offer an alternative hotel or room type if the requested hotel or room is not available. If the alternative we offered you is not suitable, simply ignore our offer or send us an email with other hotels you are interested in.

Please note that we do this as a service and apologize if you feel that the alternative we offer you is not suitable.

The check in and check out time varies and depends on the hotel's own policy. In general, check in and check out time is at twelve noon (12:00 PM). However, in some regions, the hotel will only permit check-in from 15:00 or even 16:00 onward and check-out at 10:00.
