I recently booked a room for one night in December, I was told that I didnt have to pay a deposit or any money until I arrived.
However they wanted to know,as well as my name and postcode, the long number across my debit card and its expiry date. I told them I had several cards and didnt know which one I will be paying from. Even so they wouldnt take my booking without this information.
(I was very displeased about this and would have shopped around elsewhere but for the fact that this is for a wedding, and a coach will be laid on from the reception to that particular hotel).
Does anyone have any views about this?
