How to save money at hotels and resorts
- by admin
We’ve all been there.
You get a booking, book a room and a week later, your hotel and resort is closed.
Or worse, you cancel, cancel, and cancel again.
Theres a catch.
The hotel and/or resort must remain open, and you have to pay the hotel or resort a deposit.
What do you do if you cancel your reservation?
Theres no easy answer.
You might try and make a new reservation, or maybe get a different hotel, or try again with a different resort.
You could also ask a member of staff to book you the room.
And it’s important to note that this is NOT a hotel booking, it is a hotel occupancy charge.
The same is true for the charges for parking, parking fees and so on.
If you cancel youre stuck with the cost of the hotel and the cost for the room you paid for.
You are then left with a total of the money you paid, minus any deposit.
There are several options, and they are all worth considering if you want to save cash.
If your hotel or the resort stays open and you dont cancel, youre left with some extra cash in your bank account.
This is often referred to as the “credit card charge”.
However, you should consider the following: Theres always a chance that you will be charged the credit card charge at some point in the future.
If this is the case, you could take out a new credit card and put your deposit back in, or you could try and use your hotel booking to get your deposit refunded.
This would be a very costly option, and a bad idea for a lot of people.
You can check if your credit card is in good standing with your bank.
If so, you will need to make a deposit to make up for the card charge.
If it is in bad standing, you can always ask the credit cards company to make the deposit.
You should also check the bank account of the credit provider.
Some people have found that the deposits they made with their credit card providers could be transferred to their bank account, and it is possible to transfer the cash back to your account without having to make any further deposit.
Another option is to use the hotel’s cashier to transfer your deposit to your bank, which may not be the most efficient option, but may be a more cost-effective one.
A few hotels and/and resorts have made some sort of offer to the customer for their deposits to be refunded in the event that they cancel the hotel booking.
This could be an offer to cancel and get the money refunded to your credit provider, or it could be a special offer to allow the cashier a free night.
Another way to avoid a deposit refund is to change your booking at the end of the day.
Some hotels and resort websites have a “last call” feature, which lets you cancel a booking at any time and get a refund in the form of a credit card.
The deposit can be cancelled at any point after you have used the hotel.
However, this only applies to booking online, and does not work with bookings booked by phone or via the website.
Another thing to be aware of is that you could also lose some of your money by not using the hotel, and if you do, you might not be able to claim the refund.
In some cases, the hotel has extended its closing time for guests, and could try to close the hotel for a period of time if you are not there by that time.
The refund policy can also change over time, and the hotel could try a different way to close a hotel, so make sure to check with the hotel before making a change.
The bottom line?
Your deposit should always be considered a deposit, and not a credit.
You must use the credit to make your hotel room, or else you risk missing out on your deposit and having to pay more.

This can be done with a simple credit card application, but if you dont have a credit history or if your bank has a negative balance, then it might be a good idea to take out some money and then apply for a bank loan.
If the money isnt in your account at the moment, you need to do a bank transfer to the person you applied for the loan with, and ask for the money back when you have it.
If that doesn’t work, you may have to go to the police.
If they have already been contacted by the bank, they will have the money in their account, but it is unlikely that they will give you the money.
