Hotel booking or reservation is done in most cases to approve an empty room kept for you until your arrival. You do not need to pay a full price in order to book that room, just a small amount of money in order to get a document from the hotel that confirms that you have a saved room in the hotel for specific dates.
The hotel booking confirmation document shall contain the following details:
You will be charged a small amount of money for booking the room. However, this is better than fully paying for the room, despite that you do not know whether you will be granted a visa for sure or not. In case you do not and you have paid for your stay, you will lose all your money. Whereas, despite the fact that there are hotels that offer reimbursement in case of cancellation without charging you anything, these hotels are 5 to 10 times more expensive than normal.
In many cases, the embassies simply ask for a Travel Itinerary, which should consist of both, the Flight Itinerary (or the itinerary for other means of travel as applicable), the hotel booking as well as a list of the places you will be visiting and the dates when you will be visiting them.
There are different travel companies and hotel booking agencies which offer Hotel Booking Confirmations, but only a few of them offer cheap and genuine services. When choosing a serious hotel booking agency, you have less to worry about when making the reservation.
The entire process of booking your hotel for the visa is easy and is done in only a few following simple steps:
A flight reservation is an arrangement you make through a personal reservation number, to save a seat in the aeroplane for travelling to your destination, typically for a week. In case you do not purchase the ticket within a week period, your reserved seat will be cancelled.
A travel itinerary describes your trip, where you start it when you leave, the time you arrive in your destination country, where you will be staying, what you are planning to do, when you will leave, etc. On the other hand, a flight ticket is a document, which confirms you have a saved seat in an aeroplane for which you have paid a full price.
