  • Good day, My institution will be paying for my lodging, and I won't physically have the credit card with me when arrive there. However, I can input the card details when I reserve online. Is it possible that the amount be charged directly to the credit card online?

    Hi there, yes this is absolutely fine. We just need the card holder to get in touch to confirm that they are authorizing the money to be taken off the card for security reasons. Thanks.
