SEND PHOTOCOPY OF ID and CREDIT CARD for hotel booking??

Jump to last reply

I am posting this here instead of on the Mexico forum because it will be seen here by more of you. This could happen anywhere, so is not confined to Latin America.

I recently booked a hotel in Puebla, Mexico. Going against most of the sage advice here, I sent them my credit card to confirm the booking. I do not use a debit card, by the way, so I see the charges before I pay the bill.

All well and good, so far. But with the confirmation of the room, the hotel is now asking me for a photocopy of both my credit card, and my I.D. I have had to send these before only in instances when I was making a large payment to a travel agent in South Africa, who had booked game lodges and flights for me, or to Burma when I booked a river cruise and a few hotels with another travel agent. But I do not remember any hotel ha ving asked me to provide these copies.

My first instinct is just to ignore the request, but I do not want them to cancel the booking. I've already written to them indicating that I do not have a fax and would have to send, if at all, by postal mail. Have not heard a response yet to that e-mail.

The hotel in question is very well reviewed, and they already have my AmEX details including codes.

What would you do? (Travel partner told me to find another hotel, but I want to stay in this one!)
