Hotel billEach Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Rob W., who says:

“What I do now, for stays of three or more nights and especially if I have used the hotel bar or restaurant, is head down to reception the night before I check out and ask them for a copy of my hotel bill. I take it to the comfort of my room. This gives me the opportunity to review details with out the pressure when one is checking out.

“In the past six months, I cannot tell you all those pesky small charges I have had added to my bill for items I have not used. By doing this you can then raise the issues with the reception on the way out and not be having to deal with them for months on end afterwards.”

A great tip. Thanks, Rob!

    I don’t know how many times over the years I have found charges on my bill that were not mine. It pays to check!
