How do you intend to pay the long distance call to your cc company? Don't get me wron, I am quite skeptical when jt comes to bitcoin, but a rant from a sesamestreet figure is not convincing.

Today internet access is also crucial if you loose your credit card, so that argument doesn't hold. What I distill from your answer (which in my opinion is more a rant) is that it is a matter of personal preference, but that in certain conditions bitcoins offer a valid means of payment. Whether you use it or not depends on your ability to be an early adapter or prefer to have a conservative approach in your travels.

comment Can a hotel kick you out if you let an unregistered guest share a room with you?
@choster agreed. But is the number of particpants part of the terms and general conditions? I have specifically checked on two occasions and nothing was said about the number of occupants. Actually if you don't say so, you usually pay double toursits tax on booking.com booking, even if only details of one visitor is giving. So given this behavior by hotels, my behavior is just reciprocity.

That really depends on the fees. Usually I pay the same fee for single versus double occupancy. I would consider it stealing if my guest would go for "christmas"

The difference here is that I am actually paying the bill.

@annoyed if it is easy to exchange in local currency, it is actually very handy. You can just sent bitcoins to repay someone.
