Hotel booking different name
Hi all, please help with this situation.
My friend is going to San Francisco in May for a paid work conference and I want to tag along for fun. I currently have the chase sapphire reserved card, and want to take advantage of its benefits, mainly late checkout, so I want to use my credit card to book for the hotel. However, since this is a paid work trip, my friend will need to submit all receipts to get reimbursed. Is it possible to book the hotel under his name only, but have me pay for it with my credit card? Will my name show up in any receipt? I don’t want to get my friend in trouble because of this. We both will be present at check in and check out as well. Thanks in advance.
Assuming this is not a pre-paid rate, have him book the hotel. When it comes time to pay the bill you pay it. You can keep the credit card receipt and he keeps/submits the hotel bill that shows it was paid by card xxxxx1234.
