What Is OYO Money

OYO Money is one of the two virtual currencies OYO has. The other one is OYO Rupee.

It is a promotional amount that can be used to pay for booking in applicable properties. The usage of this virtual currency is city and property-specific. And since it is a promotional credit, its usage is limited to booking and payment.

OYO Money Usage Policy

You can use 10 to 30 percent of OYO money of the booking amount while creating a booking from the official website or application.

That means you cannot use all of it to pay for the booking.

For Example, let us assume you have 1000₹ in your virtual wallet. And you wish to book a room for 1200.

Then the maximum you can use from the wallet is 120₹ to 360₹ (10% to 30% of the booking amount).

How To Use OYO Money For Payment?

So, how can you use it while booking rooms?

Well, using it is really simple. You don’t have to do anything to redeem it. OYO calculates the applicable amount at the time of booking and deducts it from your wallet automatically.

As mentioned above, this virtual currency is city and property specific. That means it is possible that it might not be applicable to some of the properties.

But, if it is applicable in the property you wish to book a room then it will be auto deducted from your wallet when you create the booking.

The percentage of booking amount to be paid from the OYO wallet depends on the property and is decided by OYO Rooms. You cannot choose the percentage (10% or 30%) of the booking amount to be paid from the OYO wallet. These things are done automatically.

  1. My girlfriend and I had a pretty bad experience with oyo just today. We had booked a room on line for $26 so that my girlfriend who is homeless right now would have a place to rest up and take a shower tonight someone had sent her that money so she could do that. She put what ever lil money she had left in her gas tank and headed to the oyo on east skelly drive off of Yale by the red roof inn. We get there and they want a $50 security deposit that they said nothing about on the web site so we had to cancel the booking.beings how she paid with pay pal they would have to put it back on her card. Which could take days! Then we find out there is a $26 canceling fee which is the exact price of the room so they tried to keep the money for a room she didn’t get to use! And she’s homeless someone tried to do something nice for her and oyo tried to basically cheat her out of it! That is completely unprofessional and bad business. I will tell as many people as I can not to do business there every chance I get cause that was just plain not right! Doing it to anyone is wrong but doing it to someone who’s down on her luck is worse! She ended up having to sleep in her truck tonight because they held up her money and didn’t even offer to compensate her in anyway!
