Need to know how to book a hotel without a credit card? If you don't have a credit card, what other option do you have? Most people probably think they would be in trouble if this ever did happen to them. Below is a list of things you can do to book a room without a credit card.
- Use a debit card instead. The only reason why a hotel wants a credit card, is so that if you buy room service, use any paid amenities or damage the room in any way it is automatically charged to your account. What some people don't know, is that hotels also accept debit cards. Why?, because they can be charged just like a credit card. The main objective of the hotel is to make sure they get paid for the amenities they provide you.
- Use someone else's credit card. You can always have someone register the room in their name. They use their credit card and you stay in the hotel. If you use any of the hotel's paid services, then you pay the person back what you owe them based on the money the hotel charged on their account.
- Put down a cash deposit for amenities. If you don't have a credit card or debit and you don't know anybody who can book a hotel for you then pay the hotel a cash deposit. The hotel will usually have an exact amount they deem suitable for this deposit, in case you damage the room or make any charges to yiur account.
- Take advantage of your excellent credit. Let's say you lost your credit card, but you have great credit. Sometimes you can still negotiate with the hotel to get a room, it may take a little longer because obviously they will need to check your credit background for themselves, but it has been done.
