Frequently Asked Questions 

How does HotelSwaps work? 

What are HotelCoins?

1. Earn HotelCoins. Advertise your availability on the HotelSwaps channel on SiteMinder and earn HotelCoins as payment for reservations made by other HotelSwaps members. 

2. Transfer HotelCoins. Transfer your hotel's HotelCoins to anybody of your choice - employees, suppliers, friends, family or even yourself.

3. Book rooms with HotelCoins. Use HotelCoins to pay for stays at any other hotel member – either from instant availability or request of specific dates.

How many HotelCoins do I earn for a booking?

In order to offer a fair exchange between members, hotel members of HotelSwaps are classified in 7 categories determining the number of HotelCoins per room night booked. HotelSwaps determine a hotel’s category by evaluating its publicly advertised room rates for a double standard room across all seasons of the year.

Grouping hotels in value categories allows for like-for-like exchanges between hotel members. See our Frequently Asked Questions for more details about the HotelCoins currency.
