This article should serve as a catch-all for travel topics that might fit under the "Sleep" heading of an article. -- Ryan 17:52, 8 August 2006 (EDT)
Merging in from Finding accommodation
WTDuck2, thanks for your help with merging from Finding accommodation. I have only one concern to share and discuss.
Currently many paragraphs appear both at the old and the new page. In theory, people may still contribute to Finding accommodation and we'll need to merge that changes into this page, Travel accommodation. How are we going to deal with this? Maybe we should remove the pieces from Finding accommodation that are already here, so we don't have duplication? --DenisYurkin 03:53, 9 September 2007 (EDT)
cancelling a reservation
Currently we only give details on cancellations made before a first date of reservation.
What is usual policy for cancellations in the middle of stay? Let say, I made a reservation for one week, then only appeared for the first day and checked out and left on the 2nd day--does anyone practice any penalties for cases like this?
Same question about moving existing reservation to later days. Say, I booked a 3 days in a hotel for a middle of my stay in the country, but changed my plans on the first day of my original reservation period, deciding to come stay with them a week later. Is it typically "cancellation and new reservation", or how property owners typically deal with that? --DenisYurkin 04:02, 9 September 2007 (EDT)
Booking by e-mail
I think this might be a very naive question, but I've always booked my hotels (in Europe) via the web and it's only now I come to travel further afield (Latin America, FWIW) and use smaller hotels without fancy web sites that this has come up, and I realise I'm completely out of my depth... When you're booking by e-mail, what's the equivalent of giving the credit card details online to guarantee the reservation? Surely it's not acceptable to e-mail credit card details, is it? Can/should you do this by phone? Or is it common for smaller hotels not to require any credit card details until you physically show up? If someone could edit the section of the article on e-mail booking to clarify this I would be grateful, and I think it would improve the article... --zorn 22:18, 30 December 2009 (EST)
Per Denis' suggestion elsewhere, I would like to rename this article to Sleep. This would conform to our usual more or less common practice of creating travel topics that mirror our section headers, a la Talk, Respect, etc. --Peter Talk 23:18, 4 January 2011 (EST)
