Will my credit card be when I book?
No, your credit card will not be immediately charged. All transactions will be managed by the Hotel, not by Visit Knoxville Housing.
For most events and most hotels, you will be charged at check-in. Every hotel reserves the right to "pre-authorize" your credit card prior to arrival, however. This is a temporary, refundable charge that a hotel will process in order to make sure your credit card is valid.
If your card will be charged prior to check-in, that information will be listed in the "room reservation agreement" at the time of booking and in your reservation email. Unless otherwise clearly listed during the booking process or under the "room reservation agreement," your credit card will not be charged until check-in (other than a potential standard pre-authorization).
