We provide the
best available rates for the dates of your stay. Discounts

through the organization issuing the voucher.

CARDS AND PAYMENTS
are my credit card details needed?
In general, your credit card details are only required as a guarantee for the
hotel in case you don't arrive or cancel too late. This might result in a "no-show" charge
(generally the equivalent of a one-night stay) by the hotel. We at My Czech
Republic do not have access to your credit card details and will not charge
your credit card. Our booking partner will not charge your card either. You
will pay for your stay at the hotel.
Does the hotel need a deposit or a
payment in advance?
You will pay for your stay at the hotel.
If the hotel requires a deposit, it will be clearly mentioned
on the hotel's information pages. Please note that some
hotels perform a pre-authorization check on your credit card
as an extra guarantee. A pre-authorization is a validity
check to reserve a certain amount that would guarantee the
room. This amount may correspond to the price of one night
or to the total cost of your reservation. Once the credit
card has been validated, the reserved amount will be released.
of credit cards can I use to guarantee the reservation?
MasterCard, Visa and American
Express are accepted as a guarantee. However, it is possible
that the hotel does not accept all of these cards for payment.
Some hotels also accept Diners Club, JCB
and other local cards. Please check the "Accepted credit cards" section on
the hotel's "How to Book" page.
How do I pay
the hotel bill?
You pay the room bill in cash or by credit card at the hotel.
Can I pay for my stay in advance?
Such arrangements depend on each hotel's policy.
Therefore, you will need to contact the hotel directly. The
hotel's contact details can be found in the confirmation
email you will receive after you make your reservation.
Can I pay for my stay at the hotel
with a different credit card than the one used to guarantee
Yes. Your credit card details are only needed
for guarantee purposes. You can pay at the hotel using the
payment method of your choice.
My credit card has been charged. How
can I get a refund?
Neither My Czech Republic, nor our booking partner ever
charges our guests' credit cards. The charge has been performed
by the hotel. Therefore, you will need to contact the hotel
directly. The hotel's contact information can be found in
your reservation confirmation email.
do not have a credit card. Can I still book a room?
Unfortunately all hotels require a credit card to guarantee a reservation.
We are not able to process any reservation without a credit card.
it safe to fill in my credit card number? How secure is
Your credit card information is sent to the hotel and our booking partner through
a secure server, using the latest, most secure technology available, which
encrypts all your personal and credit card details. The encryption method used
is the industry standard "Secure
Socket Layer" (SSL) technology. The SSL certificate has been issued by
Our booking partner also uses a firewall which protects their servers and network
against unauthorized access. In the unlikely event that your credit card were
to be misused, our partner will reimburse you the first 50 euros
of the cost. Your credit card company is obliged to pay the remainder.
Can you check availability and make a reservation

which allows us to offer discounted rates. The easy-to-use interface

availability and pricing, and make a booking yourself. Please

by email. What do I have to do?
When you make a booking, please check your email address. A confirmation email
should arrive within a couple of minutes of your booking. The most common reason
for not getting a confirmation email is typing your email address incorrectly.

your spam filter settings are too strict) the confirmation email may end up
in your "Spam" folder. If you do not receive an email after
