How to Send Money to a Hotel


Many people make travel arrangements over the Internet using third-party providers such as Expedia and Travelocity to make payments to airlines, hotels and car rental companies. However, some businesses do not maintain an online presence and are unable to accept payment directly. If you need to send money to a hotel, there are a few alternative options including Western Union, PayPal and electronic bank transfers.

Western Union

  • Go to a Western Union office, call 1-800-325-6000 or go to and set up a transfer in person.

  • Set up a transfer by filling out the transfer form using the hotel name, address, phone number and email address if available. For transfers online, you will be required to create a free account.

  • Pay the Western Union fees and provide the funds for transfer. Transfers made in person can be paid in cash or credit card. Transfers made over the phone or online must be made using a debit or credit card.


  • Create an account on PayPal and verify it using your Social Security number or bank account information.

  • Add funds to your PayPal account with an online transfer from your bank account.

  • Send funds to the hotel by using its PayPal number or its PayPal email address.

Electronic Bank Transfer

  • Go to your bank and set up an electronic bank transfer.

  • Fill out the transfer form with the hotel's name, address, account number and routing number. The hotel might opt to contact your bank directly without giving you its account information, for security reasons.

  • Authorize and transfer money directly from your bank account to the hotel bank account.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the hotel has created online bill payment, you might be able to pay it directly from your online banking page. Look for a "Bill Payment" option and follow the steps to set up a new payment.
  • Always be cautious when transferring money to any business. Get a confirmation number from the agency that transfers the money to the bank and ask for a fax or emailed copy of the receipt from the hotel.
