Hotel prices fluctuate based on demand and supply. Hotel bookings are often refundable if cancelled. A user with a refundable hotel reservation can therefore cancel and rebook the hotel if the price drops. Currently, such cancellation and rebooking requires a user to keep track of hotel prices and rebook upon detecting a drop in the price, e.g., from that paid by the user. This disclosure describes an automated method to monitor hotel prices after a refundable booking is made and automatically take action upon detection of a price drop.
