We Want to Help: Hurricane Disaster Relief Efforts

Hotel Engine wants to help as many people affected by the recent hurricanes as possible. In addition to discounted lodging for displaced victims, we have set up a donation program to help offset emergency rescue and disaster relief costs.

If you know someone in an affected area in need of immediate lodging, discounted accommodations are available at hotelengine.com/join/relief

Additionally, from now until September 22, 2017, every Hotel Engine booking made at a hotel within a 300-mile radius of Houston, Texas or within the state of Florida will generate a donation. We’re proud to contribute a portion of each completed stay’s total to the American Red Cross’s efforts to address the massive needs of the devastated areas.

Priority customer support assistance will be given to those with hotel needs in locations damaged by the hurricanes’ path. If you need to make a reservation or amend an existing one, please reach out to us at 855-567-4683 or [email protected]. We are working directly with hotels to help waive cancellation fees or make alternative arrangements as needed.

With some of our own team members in locations facing the crisis first-hand and others who have family members in the areas, our thoughts continue to be with those affected by the hurricanes in this time of crisis.

We’re committed to doing everything possible to continue providing affordable lodging options and relief support to those impacted. Beyond these efforts, we’re working with our sister company, Travelers Haven, to provide short-term housing support for those in need. More to come on that initiative with inventory updates on our social networks.


I. Hotel Engine will give two percent (2%) of the total gross booking revenue of your hotel reservation to the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross will not receive your contact information. Should you require a donation receipt from the American Red Cross, please call 1-800 RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to donate by phone, or give online at redcross.org.
