On the 28th June at 9am our summer sale will start. We will be releasing 1000 bedrooms, 500 at £1 and 500 at £29, available between the 1st July - 30th September.
During our last sale, we sold over 1300 rooms (slight software error), we had over 100,000 people trying to book the rooms and all 1300 sold out within 19 minutes! Because of this amount of traffic you may not get a room for either a £1 or £29, we are sorry, and we will have other rooms on sale starting from £59. We also try to make the sale as fair as possible and only allow one £1 room per person; if we find anyone misbehaving they will loose all their bookings.
This time our software has been improved (thank you Tech support) but unfortunately, due to the way our software works, the room is not yours until you receive a confirmation number. If you find an available room, you must complete a series of 5 steps before you can have the room. During the time it takes you to complete each step there could be another 100,000 people trying to book the same room, so you have to be quick. To help make the process easier and to try and reduce confusion we have provided this "How to book" guide, highlighting step-by-step what you have to do to try and get a room. We suggest that you print this page (sorry trees) and have it with you for the sale. The quicker you are the luckier you will be. Good luck!
Looking at the website again, it seems they've put the start time back to 10am. Thanks to Nel N for pointing this out.
