‘JDB SmartStart: One Night Free’ offers must be prepaid, are non-refundable, subject to availability and are valid on bookings made by February 15, 2011 for travel throughout 2011. One change of date is permitted, subject to approval by the hotel (restrictions apply).

According to JDB, one advantage to prepayment of hotel stays, particularly in European destinations, is that clients lock in the exact cost of their stays, avoiding the uncertainty of potential currency fluctuations.
