What is the Ctrip Low Price Guarantee?
Ctrip promises:

Every time you book a hotel through us, your member rate will always be lower than the hotel rate offered the day you check in.

If this is not the case and you check in at a rate lower than your Ctrip rate, you can receive double Ctrip points for the booking. Just send us your invoice for confirmation.

If you decide to pay your Ctrip member rate, you can receive both the CNY difference between rates and get double Ctrip points for the booking. Again, just send us your invoice so we can confirm the difference.

Ctrip will send you confirmation of your reservation once the hotel has verified and accepted your information. Your hotel room will be held for you until noon of the day following your check-in date. If you provide incorrect or false credit card information or if Ctrip cannot verify your information for any reason, your reservation cannot be guaranteed and the hotel will not hold your room for you.
