    Hi, I'm 17, my friend is turning 17 soon, but he'll still be 16 by the time we would supposedly arrive at the hotel.

    I'm planning on using my parents credit card to book the hotel over the Internet. Do I need to be a certain age in order to check in to the hotel and would I need the credit card used to book the hotel room with me when checking in? It's a London hotel if that makes any difference.

    Thanks tor the help in advance.

    It really depends on the hotel policy. Premier Inn for example will let 16 year olds book and stay without an adult, whilst Travelodge say you have to be 18+ to book and stay on your own.

    As below on the ages, and yes, you usually need the card when you turn up. The online aspect only covers the reservation and charges if you fail to turn up.

    It depends what hotel you go for. Travelodge ID'd me once but after that they never did. Premier Inn never ID me. Easyhotel ID'd me once. They've never asked for my credit card. They just sometimes ask for a reservation number and then they ask you to confirm your details.

    It depends on the hotel chain. jelly is right it is 18 for Travelodge, but it is 16 for Thistle, Premier Inn.

    You need to check with the chain.
