We didn’t charge the creditcard, we took an authorization.
What is an authorization?
We make an authorization on the credit card to ensure if the card is valid.
This means that an amount on the card is retained in order to guarantee your room.
This amount corresponds to the first night per room booking.
This precaution is taken in case you cancel too late or you would not use your reservation without cancellation (no show).
Only in this situation we would charge the creditcard.
The reserved amount is usually released within 10 days.
So at no time did we charge the credit card.
You pay the total reservation in the hotel upon check out.
