What can go wrong when shipping to a hotel or hostel and how to avoid it?
It happens that there are different departments responsible for receiving packages. So, when you write for example “reception” in the address field and it should go to “storage” or any other department, things could get mixed up. To prevent this always double check the details that were provided by the hotel. It is even better to ask for such information in writing.
It might be that there is a valet parking or another reason that there is no direct access to the main entrance, or the entrance specified.
Make sure that the hotel room is booked in the same name as the receiver of the package in order not to complicate things.
It happens that your plans change for various reasons. Of course, you can’t always predict this. But when you know this beforehand it might be a better idea to ship your package to a nearby parcel locker. This way you know for sure that your items are stored in perfect condition.
After the delivery, some hotels apply extra charges for storing your package on a daily basis. Always check the policy of the accommodation facility to avoid unpleasant surprises when it comes to delivering your luggage to a hostel or a hotel.
