  • Pricing

      Safara will issue account credits for the difference between Safara’s rate and the

      publicly available rate on the hotel’s website

      (e.g. We emphasize

      publicly available

      because we cannot match special deals or rates that may be offered as part of signing up for a hotel loyalty program or rates offered through private promo codes. We do not match any third party booking sites, such as Expedia,, Orbitz, Travelocity, Booking, Priceline, Agoda, etc.

      Price matching steps:

      • complete the booking on Safara

      • immediately email with screenshots of the lower public rate

      • if we can reproduce the rate, we’ll deposit a credit into your account for the difference to use towards your next booking

      If you’d like to confirm the price match before booking, please feel free to email us at pre-booking. However, the credit for the difference will still be deposited post-booking.
