Hotel conversion scams

Jump to last reply

Be sure to get your hotel quotes in the local currencies of the countries you're going to as they love to convert USD or Euros at a bad rate to pick up some extra money. It's a common thing all over Europe and most all do it.

An example is that you get a quote from a hotel in Prague and they give it to you in Euros but then when you pay by cash or cc, it's in their local currency-not Euros that they quoted you. They usually pick up 5-10% doing this and most people never notice it.

I learned this and always get my quotes in the local currency they use.
