Payment for accommodation

A wider range of credit cards are available for accommodation payment (including Diners and American Express). Accommodation providers have varying deposit and guarantee requirements (please refer to each hotel’s payment and cancellation policies below). After the booking is established your credit card guarantee will be managed by the accommodation provider.

If you wish the hotel to settle your account with a credit card of which you are not the signatory, you must provide written authority to the hotel to do so.
