Frequently Asked Questions

How do I add my travel credits?

To view your $100 credit, click on “ADD MORE...” in the upper right hand corner of the travel page. Enter TERPTRAVEL and hit “Add Credits.”

Why are some hotels listed as “No Credits”?

We aim to deliver the lowest prices possible, so don’t be surprised to see some hotels already listed at or near the wholesale rate. For properties already listed at the wholesale rate, we display the “No Credits” banner - meaning you’re already getting the absolute best price.

Can I earn more credits?

Whenever you book and pay for a hotel, you will earn additional credits for your next booking. You may need to log in again to view your new credits.

How do I use my credits to save money?

At checkout, you’ll be prompted to use your credits to discount the retail rate to get at or near the wholesale rate. Credits cannot be used to book a property lower than the wholesale rate.

What is the “wholesale” rate?

The wholesale rate is the minimum charge for each room, and it’s the lowest rate available.

Can I spend all my credits on a single booking?

Maybe. It depends on the hotel/resort, the length of stay, number of guests, etc. Your credits can be used to reduce the retail rate to the wholesale rate, but if there is no difference between these two rates, your credits will remain valid for future bookings.

What is the “retail” rate?

The retail rate is a public price most consumers typically pay whenever they book a room.

Are “wholesale” rates uncommon?

Wholesale rates are rarely offered to the general public. Typically they are only offered to wholesale providers (like Access) who can drive a large volume of sales. But most all other wholesale providers mark up the price significantly.

Can I purchase more credits?

You may not always have enough credits for a booking, in which case you will be prompted to purchase more credits (at pennies on the dollar) at checkout.
