    Many times successfully by using two browsers, I have used one to cancel a reservation then by using the other browser apply those points to the new reservation.

    I tried this very unsuccessfully today for the first time since the recent website change.

    Will this no longer work or is the functionality different now to make this process work?

    This no longer works. The Modify function is what now exists, and it does basically the same thing.

    I did, however, hopefully by using the modify function I won't again. Thanks for the info,

    You want to use the modify function. It holds the reservation you have until you get thru to finalize the reservation you want to change to.

    The old two browser method does no longer work, but have been replaced by the modify option instead.

    I used the modify function for the first time recently for two reservations and it worked well. There appears to be a "built in safeguard" as if you don't check the box, it won't change the reservation. I was nervous using it the first time, but I liked that safeguard of agreeing, was pleased. Hope that it works well for you next time.:goodvibes
