Hi, does this hotel charge a Bond or a Pre Authorisation upon check in?
Yes, $50 is charged to your credit card, and supposed to be canceled on departure.
3.5weeks later, I'm still fighting for my refund, and staff are very unhelpful.
I don't think so I don't really remember if they did or not
Yes, I believe it was about $50
yes, it's AU$50, either in cash or with credit card. in cash you'll get it back immediately upon check-out.
Yes they do and it's pretty standard policy these days
They take a $50 cash deposit or a preauthorise of $50 on your card which takes 5-7 days to get back
Hotels I stay in take $300 bond because of mini bar etc
My advice is pay the cash bond.
Hope this help
