Subject: Re: Credit Cards frozen?
Hi, Another thing that can happen with credit cards is that when you make hotel reservations the hotel will put a hold on your card for one night stay (or so - depending on how long you are staying).

So, if you are staying at many different locations in your trip and depending on how high the room rate is and how low your credit is, don't be surprised to find your card declined half way through the trip even though you should have plenty of money. What is happening is that the hold money is still on the card as well as several nights of hotel charges!!!

Car companies can do this too as well as tour operators!!

If you realize what has happened, call the credit card company and explain that you want the hold lifted on the hotels where you have paid your bill.
