I have read all the posts here about credit card scams and fully intend to use my card only for good and never for evil (will restrict to ATMs only)!
Can I please ask some advice as I don't have it clear in my mind at the moment (I am a bit slow :) )?
I am travelling to Bangkok parlt business/part pleasure and the hotel has been paid for. Should I offer cash as a 'deposit' in the hotel upon check-in? The hotel we are staying in has been listed by another traveller here as a potential cause of their card-skimming fiasco.
If we want to charge breakfasts and things to the hotel, do we then have to pay for them as we go rather than charge to the room? I have never paid cash like this before - we have always offered our card @ check-in. What then is the risk of the hotel making off with our cash deposit in similar fashion to making off with our card details?
thanks in advance for any advice
