I wrote it off the first time to some kind of rapid change in the currency market as to when I actually paid, but now this is twice with the same card. Also, I did not agree to any DCC, and this was from major hotels before where I have stayed previously. Am I the only one with this?
Did you stay at the exact location previously, and bill it with the same card network? Or just others in the chain?
I recently stayed at the Marriott Regents Park in London and they used DCC despite every communication I received from them portraying costs in pounds. Other Marriott hotels abroad have not done this.
