In most cases, Mauritius.com requests credit card details to confirm your reservation with the hotel, on your behalf. Your credit card may be checked (pre-authorised) to ensure that it is valid and/or that sufficient funds are available. After the check, the full amount will be available to you again. In some cases, your credit card details will be used to process the payment for the reservation at the time of booking by the hotel, depending on the conditions of your booking e.g. if there is a prepayment or if it is a non-refundable booking. Your credit card will only be charged if you have requested a pre-paid room or if the cancellation policy, found under ‘Hotel Policies’ and room ‘conditions’ has not been followed.
