Your trip can end unpleasantly in case you make a mistake as you check out from a motel. This article discusses some suggestions which you should implement while checking out from a motel so that nothing unpleasant happens after you have had a good time in that motel.

Pack Early

It isn't uncommon for travellers to realise that they forget something in the motel long after they have left the area. For example, you can forget the phone charger in a power outlet near the bed inside the room. Such oversights can be avoided by packing your belongings early. Pack most things the previous night if possible. Walk through every part of the room, such as the bathroom, and pick up everything which belongs to you before you check out.

Plan Your Time Well

It is advisable for you to plan to check out when you have extra time. Don't wait until the last minute when you have just enough time to drive to an appointment. You can be frustrated when you reach the front desk and find many people waiting to check out. Take the precaution of checking out about half an hour early so that you can absorb any delays which may occur during the process.

Know the Deadline

You should not assume that all motels expect their guests to leave the rooms at the same time. Find out what the deadline is at the motel where you have booked a room. Make sure that you pack and leave by that time so that you don't inconvenience the housekeeping staff who want to prepare that room for the next user. Leaving in time may also save you from incurring surcharges that could be levied on those who stay in rooms beyond the expected time.

Check Your Bill

Make sure that you read through your bill before you leave the check-out counter. This is a good habit to cultivate because it can help you to spot any honest mistake which could have been made. For example, you may have been accidentally billed for a different meal than what you ordered. Checking the bill allows you to request for that bill to be adjusted when your card hasn't yet been debited or when the mistake can be corrected in time.

Checking out of motels will be an easier process if you remember all the tips above. You will avoid stress and save some time and money (such as the cost of replacing a charger which you forgot).
