Travelling without a credit in the US is difficult. It's almost impossible to rent a car. Some hotels will try to work with you, others will not. You may have to put down substantial amounts of cash as deposit. Many providers will simply refuse service. For example: there is a simple food truck outside of Boston's South Station that takes card only: no card?...

This is usually possible, but since it's essential to your travel plan, you'll want to confirm it directly with the hotel management before booking. What normally happens at checkout is you settle your bill and you turn in the room key. So most likely, they'll ask you to settle your bill on the previous night, or to just let them charge your payment card ...

When you check-in, a card is usually requested, which will be used as a guarantee for incidentals, but also in some cases for the cost of the hotel itself (unless you paid at tile of booking, of course). Some hotels will simply not accept anything else. Others will just block any incidentals on your room. That may include locking the mini-bar if there is ...

Note: This might depend on the country, which you didn't state. Normally, this is not a problem at all. I regularly 'check-out' in the evening before I want to leave, not because I leave very early, but to avoid the lines in the morning. This 'checking-out' consists of paying the bill, and notifying the hotel that I will leave in the morning. In the morning,...

I run an Australian whitelabel booking site (Beat That Flight) that's mainly for flights, but also has hotels. What's interesting when I look around at other sites is how much it varies. While others have mentioned the illusion of choice with self-competing and merchant/agency, it's also worth noting that for many sites, we have different data sources for ...

This is possible and not that uncommon. The particular hotel might have a policy about it, so you must contact them to handle this. There are several ways I've seen it done: Checkout the Night before: You do the exact checkout procedure at the reception the night before where they settle your balance, charge your card if needed, except that you keep the key ...

No problem at all in South Korea. You can come an go at your leisure and unless you are blatantly violating a hotel policy or local law, no one will care. Rules may be slightly different for minors but that's more up to the chaperones or parents, then the hotels In fact, for most "normal" bookings, you could stay in the room of your girlfriend without ...

Most likely what you have paid is a "deposit", which in this case happens to be for the full amount of the stay. If you were to check-in, they would deduct the deposit you've paid from the room cost, and thus you would end up not having to pay anything as you've in effect already paid for the room. If you cancel, or if you fail to check-in, then they will ...
