Prepayment is when you pay for something in advance. When booking a hotel, this means you pay for the cost of the room at the time of booking instead of on departure or arrival.

The benefit of paying upfront means that all costs are accounted for at the time of reservation, travellers therefore, do not need to part with any of their own money and submit an expense claim. However, it’s important to review the terms and conditions of the booking, as more often than not, the booking will be non refundable if you cancel.
