大家好,我是康培士英語的Alex,今天我們要講在飯店訂房時用到的postpaid(後付)跟prepaid(預繳)的不同
Postpaid reservation is a payment that is made only at the hotel itself.

Postpaid(後付)表示只在飯店櫃台付款
It is cancelable and the deposit that you may or may not have made is refundable until the day of your reservation.

它是可以取消的,你的訂金在預定入住日之前是可以退還的
Therefore it offers a certain amount of flexibility.

所以它提供了一點靈活性
It's guaranteed usually on a credit card at a fixed rate that cannot be changed.

保證金通常是以信用卡支付固定的費率
Prepaid on the other hand is slightly more, not as flexible as postpaid.

Prepaid(預繳)相反則比較多一點,沒有後繳那麼的有彈性
Essentially you're paying up front also at a fixed rate but usually it's at a discounted rate, therefore it is not refundable.

實質上你付的是固定的金額但通常都是有打折的,所以是不能退費的
That is the difference between postpaid and prepaid reservations.

這就是postpaid(後繳)與prepaid(預繳)的差別

下星期週末我在多倫多有一個業務研討會,我需要三間從星期五到星期天在Plaza Hotel(廣場飯店)的雙人房
Well, that shouldn't be too hard.
Well, that shouldn't be too hard.
嗯,應該不會太難的
Oh, but there's a small problem. There's a chance we won't be able to travel on Friday night and we'll only arrive on Saturday morning. In which case, we'd like to stay until Monday morning. I won't know until Thursday.

噢,但是有一個小問題。我們有可能會改到星期六早上才到達,那麼就需要留到星期一早上,我要到星期四才能確定
Well, that's a bit of a problem because the Plaza doesn't accept postpaid reservations. So you might need to reserve specific dates and you'll need to prepay in full for each night.

嗯,這有一點困難,因為飯店那邊不接受訂房後付,所以你需要預定指定的日期以及預繳每天的費用
Well, I really need some flexibility in that regard.
Well, I really need some flexibility in that regard.
我真的需要彈性一點的做法
OK, let me phone around and see if there's a hotel that offers postpaid reservations. Postpaid reservations will give you some flexibility to change the dates of your travel without any penalty.

好吧,讓我打過去問看看有沒有飯店可以接受訂房後付,這樣你就可以彈性更改日期而不用罰錢
That's great! Thanks. When will you know?
