Photo copy of passports?

Just had an email from Thomas Cook advising we need to take a phot copy of our passports as this is required by all hotels on check in. Apparenlty most hotels in Goa do not have a photo copier. Any one else heard of this?

Never heard of this, all hotels take your passport and if they haven't got a photocopier they'll get it copied.

Hi

Was sent letter two weeks ago by travel agent to take photo copy of passport with visa showing for hotel to keep.

When asked why, they said its the law now.

No problem cos always take one or two for phone sim etc.

Just had a call from the travel agent about this, but was told just a photocopy of the passports as the hotel needs a copy and does not have the facilities to do it themselves. She didnt say anything about photos though.
