Billing & Payment

+ What is a pre-authorisation?

A pre-authorisation is a validation of a credit card, which protects both the merchant and cardholder from increasingly common fraud incidents. When a pre-authorisation is made, funds from your account are held by the credit card company for a period of 3-5 working days. A pre-authorisation will affect your available funds and/or spending limit. Unless you have pre-paid for your room, we run a pre-authorisation when you check in, valued at the cost of your nightly room rate + an additional amount of $100 for each night of your stay to ensure incidental costs such as room service, laundry, etc. are covered. (If your room has been paid prior to arrival, the pre-authorisation will just be the $100 for each night of your stay.)

+ Will my credit card be charged when I make a booking?

If you have booked through our website or directly through Adelphi by phone or email, your credit card will not be charged. We ask for the card for our cancellation policy only. Some third party websites may charge your card at the time of booking.

+ What happens if I want to cancel my booking?

For direct bookings (made on our website, via email or over the phone with us), we require at least 24 hours notice regarding cancellations. If you cancel your room outside of this timeframe, you will not incur any cancellation fees. If you cancel within 24 hours of the check-in time, you will be charged for the first night’s accommodation.

+ Is there additional fees for paying with a credit or debit card onsite?

An automatic 1.35% Merchant Fee will be added to all onsite credit and debit card payments.
