How To Make Hotel Reservations

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
  • Telephone
  • Dates of travel
  • Room preferences
  • Credit card

Follow these steps to make hotel reservations:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Tips:

If you do have a regular credit card, you can purchase a pre-paid credit card to use for booking your reservation.

Warning:

Making changes to your reservation at the last minute can result in additional fees.
