Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I sign up?

Member Favorite Features: Our Ultimate Bump Protection, tax is included in our rates—what you see is the final price, we offer transportation reservations to and from the airport and you can book additional activities at your destination through us too!
What is Ultimate Bump Protection?
It’s awesome is what it is! It means that if you have to cancel your reservation—because you got bumped from your flight, or won’t be making it for any other reason—you won’t pay a penny. It’s sameday cancellation protection, for free. We just don’t think you should have to pay anything for vacations you don’t take!
How does Ultimate Bump Protection work?
It applies to Last Minute Bookings only. If you book Last Minute—72 hours or less from check in time—than you automatically get our Ultimate Bump Protection, for free. If you have to cancel your reservation, even same day, there’s no penalty and no cost to you. And, there’s no re-booking or re-scheduling to deal with, no one you need to talk to or explain things to. You pop onto GoBumpFree.com, login to your account and with just a few clicks, cancel your reservation. We take care of the rest for you.
If you book In Advance — more than 72 hours from your check in time—you won’t get the Ultimate Bump Protection but you'll have the hotel's standard cancellation policy. Be sure to read that carefully before booking.
Why does GoBumpFree ask for Airline Employee ID info?
Our platform is exclusive to the airline industry—active employees, retirees, your family and friends. We ask for your airline credentials in order to verify your account. You may be asked for this information by the accommodations provider as well, so it’s good to have on hand.
Can my family and friends sign up?
Of course they can! If they can travel on your passes, they are invited to be a GoBumpFree member. All they’ll need is your airline employee ID or your airline’s Speedy Validation Code to complete their registration quickly. They’ll received a confirmation email from us once the validation process is complete.
What is the Validation/Reference Code?
Some airlines have unique codes for their employees and retirees that allow new registrants to skip having to send in their ID—the validation code becomes the ID. Check your intranet/travel page to see if your employer has a GoBumpFree registration code. If they do, add it to your registration form in the “Reference code” box. You can share it with family and friends too!
What’s the catch?
There isn’t any! We think it’s wrong to have to pay for a trip you don’t get to take. We know how hard airline employees work, and how those odd schedules impact family and friends. So we created a service that enables you to do more travelling, easier. No catch.
