What are the charges for taxes & services?
In connection with facilitating your hotel transaction, the charge to your credit card will include a charge for Taxes and Fees. This charge includes an estimated amount to recover the amount we pay to the hotel in connection with your reservation for taxes owed by the hotel including, without limitation, sales and use tax, occupancy tax, room tax, excise tax, value added tax and/or other similar taxes. In certain locations, the tax amount may also include government imposed service fees or other fees not paid directly to the taxing authorities but required by law to be collected by the hotel. The amount paid to the hotel in connection with your reservation for taxes may vary from the amount we estimate and include in the charge to you. The balance of the charge for Taxes and Fees is a fee we retain as part of the compensation for our services and to cover the costs of your reservation, including, for example, customer service costs. The charge for Taxes and Fees varies based on a number of factors including, without limitation, the amount we pay the hotel and the location of the hotel where you will be staying, and may include profit that we retain. Except as described below, we are not the vendor collecting and remitting taxes to the applicable taxing authorities. Our hotel suppliers, as vendors, include all applicable taxes in the amount billed to us and we pay over such amounts directly to the vendors. We are not a co-vendor associated with the vendor with whom we book or reserve our customer’s travel arrangements. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate and the type of applicable taxes vary greatly by location. For transactions involving hotels located within certain jurisdictions, the charge to your credit card for Taxes and Fees may include a payment of tax that we are required to collect and remit to the jurisdiction for tax owed on amounts we retain as compensation for our services.
When do I pay for my booking?
That depends on the type of booking:
1) Rate per room per night – Pay online: If a room is available and you’ve submitted your credit card details and agreed to the booking conditions on the booking form, the reservation is then confirmed and a hotel voucher will be automatically sent to your e-mail address. The hotel voucher is only issued after we have verified and charged your credit card. The hotel voucher AND credit card must be presented upon check-in at the hotel, together with a valid form of photo ID.
2) Book Now Pay Later – Pay online: Book Now Pay Later is just that, make a booking now, pay for it later. The booking will be instantly confirmed. The booking conditions (cancellation policy) will determine when you are billed. The actual charge date will be approximately 2-5 days prior to the hotel booking conditions becoming active. At that time you will be charged the full amount. This option is only available for Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and JCB. Please make sure you select “Pay Later” when you input your credit card details.
3) Special Rates – Pay at the hotel: Tripmazon.com works in partnership with other companies to ensure we offer the best rates. If you choose to stay at a hotel where an Tripmazon.com partner has provided the lowest rate, we will confirm your reservation and issue a confirmation email. In such cases we will not charge your card. You will be required to pay the hotel directly upon check-out and the hotels own cancellation policy will apply. The title of the rate section for these hotels is ‘Special Rates’ instead of ‘Rate per room per night’.
Please note: The hotel reserves the right to preauthorize/charge your credit card prior to arrival. Timing and amount of charges will be in line with the conditions of your booking.
When do I get a confirmation email?
