Today we did our online check in, i put a cc # down. I noticed they charged $1 to the card, im sure to make sure its good. But im wondering now, when you check in, do they authorize an amount on the card prior to use? We normally dont use a card for charging, we either pay cash or use the card ourselves, not tied to the room. The reason im concerned is i plan on paying for the DDP with the same card, a debit card linked to my checking account and dont want it authorized and then have no money left. We also have 3 reservations at different resorts for the stay, so i dont want an authorization for each stay, then find out we dont have access to our money since they authorized it 3 times.
