Payments

Is it possible to check out after the stated check-out time?
A late check-out can only be arranged with the hotel and usually depends on availability at the time of your stay. You can ask about the possibility at the reception upon arrival.
What's prepayment?
Some properties require a prepayment. The prepayment is an amount charged by the property, ahead of your stay. The date of the payment, and how much is charged, depends on the property's prepayment policy.
What taxes and fees are included in my booking?
Kenyageographic.com does not charge a booking fee. Any additional charges or taxes you do see are defined by the property and local tax rules.

Very likely, yes. Properties usually accept payment for the stay with a different card or cash. To confirm that paying with a different credit card is OK, contact the property.

The amount held will be returned to your account after a certain period of time, which depends upon the property and your card provider.
