What does the guests experience look like?

Guests will be presented with the option to purchase refund protection during the online booking process and on the payments page.

The XCover Protection fee is automatically calculated as a % of the booking value, as seen in the screenshot below.

The guest makes an informed decision on whether they’d like to purchase protection or not.

If yes, the guest continues through the booking journey as normal and pays the XCover Protection fee directly to you.

The guest is then immediately protected should the worst happen and they are forced to cancel their booking.
