Occasionally, we offer cashback on some travel deals. Below are our instructions for redeeming your cashback, as well as terms and conditions.

Cashback rates 

The cashback you receive from your order varies between retailers (the merchant you buy from) and the exact product that you book. We will inform you of the exact percentage you’re eligible for at the time of claiming it, alternatively you can request a cashback quote ahead of buying by contacting us. The cashback rates displayed on each retailer’s page are provided for illustrative purposes only.

How to claim your cashback:

45 days after you get home from your holiday, forward us the email reciept from the merchant – i.e. your booking and payment confirmation from Hotelopia. We’ll hold on to it until 45 days after your stay finished, and then process it. Payments can only be made via PayPal, and it may take up to 20 business days to send the cashback payment to your nominated account.

The email address to send your claim to is alec@broke.travel

Why the claim period starts 45 days after the end of your stay – This is essentially a fraud/loss prevention tactic to protect us. The Cashback comes from the commission that the Merchant pays us. By waiting until 45 days after the end of your stay, we are guaranteed that your stay was not cancelled, cut short, or was otherwise voided, and that we’re guaranteed the commission. Once the transaction is accepted and approved (typically 30 days after the end of your stay), we are happy to pay your cashback.

Important Notes:

  • For a cashback claim to be valid, you must only use our discount codes – you should not attempt to open any other website’s deals or use any other discount codes other than the ones on broke.travel. The validity of your claim relies on us being able to track the sale.
  • The cashback amount is the percentage (as advertised) from the final order amount – this includes any discount, but excludes processing fees, or costs incurred which are outside the control of the merchant.
  • The maximum cashback amount for any single order is ÂŁ40.
  • Cashback can only be claimed 45 days after the end of your stay. For clarification, we only offer cashback on hotel bookings.
  • You must claim your cashback within 180 days of the end of your stay at the hotel.
  • Cashback payments will only be made once per booking – it is your responsibility to ensure that no one else has access to your booking details.
  • Cashback can not be claimed in situations where the Merchant (Our Partner) does not pay our commission – this includes, but is not limited to – special deals or sales; the use of gift cards or other non-monetary forms of payment; voided or cancelled sales.
  • The Percentage is advertised on the Merchant discount code page.
  • The cashback programme only applies to new bookings made after the 26th of February 2013, and may be stopped without notice at any time.

5. “Approved Transactions” are only those that are tracked transactions between you and Participating Retailers concluded via the Partner Service; and made in accordance with these Rules, the terms of any Participating Retailer’s promotion and any other terms and conditions applicable to the use of the Partner Service; and confirmed by the Participating Retailers as no longer capable of being cancelled by, credited to and/or refunded to you, whether in whole or in part.

6. Without in any way limiting or exemplifying what may not qualify as Approved Transactions the following shall specifically not qualify as Approved Transactions: transactions made when you have more than one Account concurrently in existence; transactions in respect of which you have not initiated transaction tracking; transactions in respect of which the data necessary to enable Cashback Rewards to be credited to your Account has been corrupted, damaged or lost; transactions, which are or which We reasonably believe are conducted by you with a purpose which is unethical and/or intended to obtain Cashback Rewards dishonestly and/or in a manner contrary to the spirit or letter of these Rules.

However, We make no warranty or representation and offer no assurance or guarantee that the Cashback Reward will be credited to your account as a result.

18. You are not entitled to a Cashback Reward in respect of Approved Transactions for which We do not receive the whole of the commission due from the Participating Retailer.
