    Hotel Bill

    Last week i went to Manchester to watch WWE, and stayed at a hotel in Manchester for 2 nights. I checked out last Wednesday
    I also racked up a £81 bar tab.

    Now when i left i payed for the hotel room with my debit card and i also payed for the bar tab as a separate transaction with the same card.

    I have a receipt for the room and bar tab,They have taken the money out for the hotel room, but they haven't taken the money out for the bar tab.

    They girl on reception didn't speak English very well
    So should i expect the money to be taken out at some point randomly are they magically not going to charge me.

    Are you hoping a member of the hotel staff post on her and will answer your question?

    I'm stunned an adult would admit going to watch WWE!

    If it's a proper receipt from a proper till or pdu thing where your card was actually swiped, then yes you will be charged eventually. If they took your details down by hand or some other man-made potential for error took place, then they MAY have made a mistake and you will not be charged. However, for an £81 bar bill, if they can tie it to your room, they will track you down and you'll be charged one way or another.

    Well you're supposed to tell them on check out that you have a bar tab. By leaving without paying you have committed theft.

    He said he'd paid by separate transaction...

    Some hotels do all the CC processing at night especially if they are processing loads, dont worry they will get the money.
