Hidden Fees At 3-star Hotels in Jamshedpur

by Manish Kumar Marketing Head

Budget travellers often stay very cautious while staying at the 3-star hotels in Jamshedpur so as to keep a check on their total expense at the hotels. First and foremost, they choose a hotel that fits in their budget. They use the amenities wisely to prevent unnecessary extra charges. Still, many times, the final bill shows many extra fees added to their hotel charge.

So, what are these extra charges that generally the 3-star hotels in Jamshedpur or anywhere charge?

Let’s find out:

  • Resort Fees

Well, don’t go with the name. Even if you stay at hotels near Jamshedpur railway station, the hotels ask you to pay resort fees.

Basically, a resort fee is what you need to pay for all the amenities and extras that you use at the hotel. This fee may cover the charges for a daily newspaper, fitness centre, or maybe a business centre. Well, it really depends on the hotels what they advertise omitting these “extra fees”.

The entire criteria of resort fee vary from hotel to hotel. You must also know that the resort fee is highly negotiable.

If you are a loyal member of the hotel, you may waive the resort fee, and more so, if you book the stay using your reward points. If you are not a member, you still stand a chance to waive this fee. Ask the hotel to waive the charges of the amenities that you won’t use at the hotel.

  • Occupancy tax

Also known as the transient occupancy tax, occupancy tax is basically a tax issued by the state government. Well, this certainly depends upon your location and the government rules and regulations. If the local body governing the area implies no such tax, you may escape paying it altogether.

  • Donations fee

There are some hotels near Jamshedpur railway station that charge automatic “donation fee” which goes into the charity of the choice.

Well, the hotels in Jamshedpur certainly work for social causes and by paying the fees, you can also make a contribution to this philanthropic cause. But you need to be very cautious while selecting the hotel as many hotels demand the fees but don’t donate it to the cause. The entire money goes into their pocket and they get a tax write-off.

So, to make sure your donation fee is actually going into the right cause, you must be very upfront and discuss it with your hotel at large. Pay only if you get a satisfactory answer.

  • Restocking fee

Well, not every hotel charges a restocking fee. But, certainly, there are some 3-star hotels in Jamshedpur that demand so.

As the name says, they charge for restocking the minibar. You must ask the front desk in detail about the restocking fee before you even book the hotel.

  • Service charge

There are only a few hotels in Jamshedpur that charge for the staff gratuity. These are the hidden fees that the hotels in Jamshedpur demand.
