Booking of hotels mentioned in this forum.

Hey friends,

I am going to Chamonix soon! however, the hotels there don't accept online booking, I can only book by providing my credit card details over email which I feel isn't secure.

Would like to hear opinions on this please.

Thank you!

Call them! Most hotels are fine with telephone booking and you get to hear what the people at the other end are like. If the hotel is listed in several repertoires and has a web presence, then it's a pretty safe bet you'll have no issues (a legit hotel wants return customers!).

You should give your credit card details by phone. I don't put it on an email or fax either.

That's the usual way. I prefer not to email it too. Kind of daft really but there you go.

My family and I are currently (Oct-12-19) staying in a self catered apartment in Chamonix. Booking and confirmation made by email. Payment by credit-card made by telephone call. Seems safe enough. I checked my visa on-line account and saw no other strange transactions since the payment was made 2 weeks ago.

Hope this helps.
