Hotel Key Cards

ORACLE

This is pretty good information. I have never even thought about Key Cards containing anything other than an access code for the room!

Ever wondered what is on your magnetic key card?

Answer: There usually is:

a. Your name
b. Your partial home address
c. Hotel room number
d. Check-in and out dates
e. Your Credit Card No. and expiry date


Until the card is electronically 'overwritten' for the next guest, it is usually kept in a drawer at the front desk - with YOUR INFORMATION ON IT!. An employee can take a handful of cards home and using a scanning device, access the information onto a laptop or go shopping at your expense.

Keep the cards, take them home with you or destroy them. they will not charge you for the card (it's illegal to do so) and then you'll be sure that you are not leaving a lot of valuable personal information on it that could easily be lifted with any simple scanning device card reader. For the same reason, if you arrive at the airport and discover that you still have the card key in your pocket, don't throw it in any of the airport waste-bins. Take it home with you and cut it up or shred it.

Could have guessed, 'cos it's printed in Pompey (Hilsea)
