5 Ridiculous Hotel Fees You Should Never Pay by Opinionated: 11:31am On Jan 10
Hotels are always looking for ways to make money. Thus, they have devised subtle ways to rake in more money-which may appear ingenious to them but not to their guests. Check your bill closely and always speak up when a hotel hits you with any of the following ridiculous fees shared by Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency.

Additional person fee

Hotel room rates are usually based on double occupancy. You don’t have to pay extra charges for kids or friends in the room. To avoid this fee, you need to be aware of it before you book so that you can search for another hotel that doesn’t charge it.

WiFi fee

WiFi should be one of the perks customers enjoy when they stay in a hotel. But a lot of hotels charge a fee for WiFi. This said, when you find such a fee on your bill, do not hesitate to make a complaint especially if it is ridiculously expensive.

Parking fee

You should not pay to park your car at a hotel you are lodging. But in a desperate bid to earn more, some hotels charge this absurd fee.

Early check-in fee

Some hotels will charge you extra if you check in at a certain time. If you arrive early, ask whether there is an early check-in fee. If there is, you should not hurriedly pay. The hotel should be magnanimous enough to check-in whether you arrive early or not.

Luggage Holding

Some hotels charge guests to leave their bags at the front desk. Always confirm if this service is free before stashing your luggage with them.

In most Nigerian hotels, you would not need pay most of these fees.

But in many other countries, you surely will pay.

Many Hilton hotels require you pay for some high Speed wifi services. Same with Car-parking and extra beds by Marriot/Intercontinental hotels even in African Destinations like Kenya, Uganda, SA etc

If I count the number of times I paid for a hotel room, I'm sure it would be less than 10times.

I mostly move about with artistes and paper boiz. I don't even pay for the orobos, it's a given undecided

OP really? Some hotels do charge for common WiFi and luggage? What kinda nonsense hotel could that be?

Parking space, aye. Not all places you park in some hotels. There are reserved areas where you must pay if you insist on parking there.
