Checking in to the joining hotel

Postby katb » Mon May 03, 2010 12:28 pm

I'm doing the JXP trip starting in Mexico City in June and as I arrive in the country the day before the tour starts I have booked an extra night in the joining hotel. I was just wondering at what point on day 1 of a tour people usually check into their hotel? Is it after the arrival meeting? Only reason is that as I'll be travelling solo I will be matched up with a roommate so just wondered if this is pre-arranged and the hotel already know which room I will be in (and I can get checked out of my previous room and into the new one) or is it sorted out after the meeting and I need to keep hold of my luggage somehow before then?

Thanks

When I went to Mexico it was all prearranged. When I got to my hotel room my roomie had already been there a few days.
However when I went to China it was a different story and I had to move rooms after my own night of pre booking.
However, either way, it doesnt really matter when you get to the hotel just state that you are on a GAP tour and the starting date and they have it all organised what they will want to do with you - it really isnt a problem. Your hotel will tell you what to do either way - no worries.

The other members of your group can check in at any time of day or night and are usually coming form all corners of the globe - however most people do try to get there before the welcome meeting.
Details of your welcome meeting will be found at reception - no problem!

Thanks for the quick reply! Good to know the hotel should have it all sorted, it's just one less thing for me to worry about!!

Dont forget your voucher from GAP if you booked the extra night through them!
