Credit Card

We have heard that you must have a major credit card at check in. Does anyone know if you can use a visa debit/check card? We will be staying for the first time 1/30-2/3. Any suggestions would be great.

In general, you have to have something they can charge to. It's like a security deposit sort've. Like the case when you rent a car. The alternative, I suspect, would be to leave a certain amount of cash as a security deposit. If you don't have a credit card I'd inquire as to what to do with the particular hotel or resort you'll be staying at. I don't think a debit/check card would do but I'm sure there's a way around it.

You can use Visa Check Cards the same as if you're using a Credit Card - that's the nice thing about them. They'll put a draft against it though, so you'll have to have that amount of Cash in your checking account.
