I would like to extend my stay in Europe in the hotel the RS uses for our tour. They offered me a reservation. However, they want me to email all of my credit card information. I keep hearing that this exposes me to fraud. They provide me with their telephone number. However, I've not been too successful employing this method. Is the hotel I contacted employing a standard technique for payment?
"They provide me with their telephone number. However, I've not been too successful employing this method." If you tell us what the problem is, we can help you make the call. Or, post the phone number (it's for a hotel, so it's public information), and we can tell you exactly how to do it. There are ways to save some money on the call, too, which I'll detail once I know where you're calling.
So, the same question twice, and two different answers - both valid. The shotgun approach may or may not hit more targets, but sure makes it difficult for the helping helpers here to work with each other.
