Question by Emily: Can you rent a hotel room at 18 with your parent’s credit card?
My friends and I are going to Virginia Beach and we need to find a hotel suite/ condo with multiple bedrooms, all the ones I have found say you have to be 21, I’m only 18.Can you rent one of those hotel rooms with your parent’s credit card and them being ok with it. Or do you need an ID to check in?
Answer by SK
You can’t sign for your parents’ credit card, and they are within their rights to ask you for ID to make sure it matches the name on the card anyway. Of course your ID will show that you are under 21. Basically, I think this *might* work, but you can’t rely on it.
A better idea is just to have your parents call the hotel and ask them if they will accept this compromise. If their concern is over the maturity of the patrons, then probably they won’t let you stay. But if their concern is about your reliability when it comes to making payment, then they might let your parents book the room for you. Honestly, I’d just ask the hotel offices themselves.
