First, some information about the nightly rates displayed in response to your search request when you are starting the booking process. If the requested dates cover more than one night, the rate displayed will be the average rate for that period. Nightly room rates may vary during the time of your stay – for example, midweek and weekend rates generally vary.
Second, please note that the individual rates that are displayed are set by the hotels, not by CTM. There are no fees or increased costs incurred by the users of our service – in particular, no membership or participation fees. In fact, users of this service are typically offered opportunities to benefit from discounted rates and special amenities provided exclusively to university or college related visitors.
Regarding credit card transactions – Campus Travel Management manages the web platform for these booking tools but does not handle any transactions directly. Your booking information, including credit card information, is securely passed through to the hotel you choose. In most cases your credit card is simply used to guarantee the reservation, and you will not actually be charged until the time of your stay. The exception to this is for pre-paid bookings, or bookings requiring a deposit. In those cases you will be authorizing the hotel to charge your credit card for the reservation according the terms established by the room you choose.
