Tax and temporary hold fee explained

Tax: pricing for hotels in Singapore is subject to the following tax:

10% Service Charge (mandatory fee)
7% Goods & Services Tax (GST)

We don’t charge any credit card fees at YOTEL Singapore.

Temporary hold fee: YOTEL Singapore reserves the right to collect, through pre-authorization, at least S$ 50 per room as a deposit for incidentals or damage. A $50 temporary hold fee for incidentals is taken per cabin, per night. The incidental fees will be released during the check-out. A pre-authorization will place the pre-authorized amount in a holding-state and temporarily reduce one's credit card limit, but it is NOT a transaction charge and will not be reflected in one's credit card statement. Depending on one's credit card bank's set up, the pre-authorized amount will be released typically after 14 days. For assurance, guests whose credit cards have been pre-authorized are encouraged to check with their respective credit card bank to confirm the above understanding of pre-authorization, confirm that a pre-authorization - and NOT a charge - has been performed, and affirm the pre-authorized amount and when it will be released as scheduled. For guests holding a debit card, the hotel will perform a sale transaction on the total incidental charges. Any balance amounts will be refunded accordingly after the departure in SGD.
