這篇報導相信對大家應該都不陌生,我想,各位也已經知道,當我們在訂飯店的時候,一開始看到的訂價,不一定就是我們退房時候的價錢。有時候,我們在住宿期間,會使用到其他的一些服務,例如,網路、健身房、冰箱裡的飲料零食等。這些照理說,應該是要包含在房價中的東西,收費標準會隨著你住的國家、地區、飯店而有所不同。對我來說,至少網路和健身房都應該要免費提供的,至於冰箱裡面的東西,在很多地方都是要額外收費,而且定價都高得嚇人,通常都會比一般市價高出三到五倍。

 

我們來看一下有那些服務項目通常是需要額外的費用的。




  • Early check-in fee. 提前入住費用

If you want to check in to your room before the preset time, you could incur a charge of as much as $50 for the privilege.

如果你希望可以在一般標準的入住時間,也就是下午三點以前入住房間的話,通常,都必須要付出大約美金50元才能享有此特權。原因是,通常飯店都是讓房客在12點退房,所以12點到3點這段期間就是他們房務人員整理房間的黃金時段,如果你要提早入住,那就表示,房務人員就必須提早把房間整理好。

 



  • Early check-out fee. 提前退房費

You may also be charged anywhere from $50 to the cost of a night's stay if you have to leave a day or more earlier than expected.

當你要提前一天離開飯店或是比預期的退房時間還要更早退房的話,你也是有可能會被酌收50元甚至一個晚上的住宿費用。

 

  • Cancellation fees. 取消訂房費

Need to cancel your stay altogether? Whereas before you might have been able to cancel your reservation without penalty by 6 p.m.on the day before your scheduled arrival, some hotels are now charging you a night's stay if you don't cancel within 48 or even 72 hours prior to arrival.

以前你可能可以在當天的六點取消訂房,但是,現在飯店通常都要求房客必須提早在48小時或是72小時前就要告知,否則就會酌收一個晚上的費用

 



  • Minibar restocking fee. 迷你吧的食物補充費

At some hotels you'll not only have to pay to enjoy an item from the minibar, you'll also have to pay a restocking fee to have the item replaced. So that $12 can of nuts may end up costing you more like $19.

如果你吃了迷你吧的零食,你不止要付零食本身的費用,還要負擔飯店人員事後補充零食的服務費

 

  • Automatic gratuities. 自動加成的服務費

Before you tip anyone, check to see if an automatic gratuity for their services has already been added. For instance, you may incur a one-time $10 to $30 fee to cover housekeeping and bellman gratuities, while your bill for room service or spa services may already include a 10% to 20% tip.

在國外付小費是很正常的,不過,在付小費之前,你可以先了解一下你的房價是否已經自動被加上10%到20%的服務費呢?

 



  • Gym fee. 健身房使用費

Some hotels are pumping up their bills by charging anywhere from $5 to $40 a day for the use of the fitness facilities.

有些飯店會酌收健身房的使用費,大約從5元到40元不等

 



  • Baggage holding fees. 行李搬運費

Need to stash your luggage at the bellhop stand? You might have to shell out a couple of bucks per bag to have them tucked away.

當有行李員幫你搬行李時,可能要考慮一下,因為通常服務完之後,都還是要給點小費才能打發他們。

  • Tiered WiFi charges. 無線網路的費用

Some hotels are charging for Internet access based on how you use it. For example, basic Internet service for things like checking your e-mail may be free, but if you need high-speed access, then it could cost you upwards of $10 a day.

雖然現在很多飯店都是上網免費,但是還是有些飯店硬是要收上網費喔~在使用前請務必小心為妙
