Hotel Reservation Tips

Hotel Reservation Tips

Some questions to ask before you book your stay:

■ What is the pet fee?

■ Is the fee per pet, per day, or per stay?

■ Is there a weight limit or a number of pets limit?

■ Is there a breed or type of animal policy?

■ Is there an incidental fee? If so, what does it cover?

■ Is there an authorization hold? How much is it, what does it cover, and are you going to be charged and then credited back?

■ How are the rooms cleaned between pet stays?

■ Can a pet be left in the room alone? If so, does it need to be crated?

■ Do they have pet sitters available?

■ What’s the barking policy?

■ Is there a nearby relief area?

Getting the policies in writing is always a good idea, especially if you want to avoid any unexpected additional charges.
