I have a booking at a Berlin hotel for next month.The booking was made through a third party website which I frequently use.
The confirmation e-mail includes this advice:- ***ATTENTION*** Cost absorptions are only accepted in exceptional cases.The hotel charges a handling fee of 4,80 Euro per each cost absorption.Please contact the hotel directly regarding this payment method.
This appears to suggest that 'cost absorption' is a method of payment.
Google translates 'cost absorption' to 'Kostenübernahme' and translates 'Kostenübernahme' to 'reimbursement'.
I can't figure out what is being advised here.Can anyone clarify please?
