Learning how to make hotel reservations will ensure that a room is ready for you when you go away for business or pleasure. There are several ways to make a hotel reservation. You can use the Internet, a telephone, or a travel agent.
You will need the following items to make hotel reservations:
- Computer with Internet service
- Dates of travel
- Room preferences
- Credit card
Follow these steps to make hotel reservations:
- Go to the website of the hotel you wish to stay in. Type in your check-in, and check-out dates. You will also need to list how many people will be staying in the hotel room. A list of available rooms will pop up. Prices will also be displayed. Click on the room you wish to book. Use a credit card to book the room. Email confirmation will be sent to you. Print it out and bring it with you when you go.
- Call the toll free number for the hotel you want stay in. A customer service representative will use his computer to locate available rooms based on your travel dates. Simply tell the customer service representative which room you would like to book. Have a credit card ready. Read the representative your credit card number. Once the room is secured, the customer service representative will give you a confirmation number. Write this number down and bring it with you when you go.
- Meet with your travel agent and pay the travel agent to take care of the reservations for you. You can tell your travel agent what you want in a room, how much you are willing to spend per night, and what your travel dates are. They will take care of the rest for you. They will also provide you with a confirmation number you can use upon check-in.
If you do have a regular credit card, you can purchase a pre-paid credit card to use for booking your reservation.
Making changes to your reservation at the last minute can result in additional fees.
