    Have you ever said you're over your limit credit card or debit card was declined, even though I knew I had an available credit or money in your bank account? If this happened shortly after a stay in a hotel or rent a car, the problem could have been card "blocking." What is blocking? When using a credit card or debit card at a hotel or rent a car, the secretary general, contact the company that issued your card to give a total estimate. If approved the transaction, your available credit (credit card) or the balance of your bank account (debit card) is reduced by this amount. This is a "block." Some companies also call this placing a "hold" on those amounts. Here's how it works: Suppose you use a credit card or debit card when you check in a 100 a, a one night hotel for five nights. Probably at least 500 would be blocked.

    In addition, hotels and car rental companies often add anticipated charges for "incidentals" like food, beverages or gasoline to the blocked number. These amounts accessories may vary widely among merchants. If you pay your bill with the same card you used when you checked in, the final charge on your credit card, or the final amount of your debit card, probably will replace the block in a day or two. However, if you pay your bill with a different card or with cash or a check, the company that issued the card used at check-in could keep block up to 15 days after checking.
