"Incidental Charges"

Good Morning,

I have a credit at the FSM where I'm staying for each night that I stay.

The credit is for "incidental charges."

Am I correct in assuming this will not apply to food or beverages bought on property?

Incidentals usually refers to any charge over the room rate. Without knowing the specifics of your credit I couldn't stay for sure but if your rate gives you $50 per day or something for incidentals I would think it could be used for food and beverage. Of course a call or e-mail to the property could give you the answer.

Incidental charges are generally food and drink ... and spa. In other words, it's not real money ... they just want to keep you at the resort so when your credit runs out ... you start spending real money there! The credits are for things that are grossly over-priced to start out with. That $50 will disappear into thin air.

Stores on the property ... it would depend on whether they were outside contractors and what agreement they have with the hotel about credits.

I seriously doubt that credits can be used for parking or resort fees. Mini-bar, movies or use of the phones are a possibility. Maybe special events like a luau on site.
