There should be a cancellation policy on their website and a help desk number, she might be lucky enough to get the full cost back?

Good luck

It depends - some are free cancellation and some are not. Usually the free cancellation rooms are a little more when you book. She may be able to change her booking or keep it as a credit with booking .com. I would call rather than cancel on line

When I booked with booking.com the money from my credit card went straight to the hotel and not the website,

I believe booking.com then get commission from the hotels so you may have to see if the hotel has a refund policy.

Depending on the reason for cancelling if she can't get all of her money back would her insurance come into play?

A lot of the price options on Booking.com are pay later which can be cancelled right up until the day before departure, but I don't get why the traveller doesn't know what they have booked.

Surely it's best to check the T&C instead of asking a bunch of people who can't know the relevant information.

I couldn't agree more, Realdiver. It isn't something anyone else can help with, but the OP ought to be able to read it in B&W in the booking conditions. Very often on that site you see various prices depending on exactly whether you want to pay more for the option of being able to cancel. We don't know which box was ticked.

However, maybe the following would be useful:

Whenever you pay for a flight or a hotel by most bank's credit cards, there's automatic holiday insurance included. It's limited, but worth investigating if it looks like you'll lose the money otherwise.

A last resort would be to try to sell the booking onto someone else. There would presumably be charges to change the name but you may be able to recoup 50% or so.
