Do hotels take payment at check-in or check out? How can I check into a hotel without ID?


It depends on the hotel’s policy. Some hotels may require payment at the time of check-in, while others may require payment at check-out. It’s always a good idea to check the hotel’s policies and procedures in advance so that you know what to expect.

Many hotels will ask for a credit card to be placed on file at check-in to cover any incidental expenses, such as room service or minibar charges. In some cases, the hotel may place a hold on the credit card for the full amount of the stay, which will be released at check-out once all charges have been settled.

If you have any questions about the hotel’s payment policies, it’s always a good idea to ask at the time of booking or to contact the hotel directly to clarify their procedures.


How can I check into a hotel without ID?

It is generally not possible to check into a hotel without providing a valid form of identification, as hotels are required by law to verify the identity of their guests for security and legal purposes.

Most hotels will require a government-issued photo ID, such as a passport or driver’s license, at the time of check-in. Some hotels may accept other forms of identification, such as a military ID or student ID, but it’s always best to check with the hotel in advance to confirm what types of ID are accepted.

If you are unable to provide a valid form of identification, it is unlikely that the hotel will allow you to check-in. In some cases, the hotel may make an exception if you are able to provide other forms of identification or if you can demonstrate that you have a valid reason for not having ID, but this is at the hotel’s discretion and is not guaranteed.
