SULU Hotel Corkage Fee
« on: July 18, 2012, 03:06:34 PM »
Hi mga Sir,
 
Good Day!
Me and my gf just recently entered into a Photobooth Business.
We had a reservation for a Birthday Event on SULU Hotel.
Yesterday, the Client just cancelled her photobooth reservation because of this Corkage Fee stuff SULU Hotel told her. They said they need to pay an additional PhP3,000.00 if they'll be having a Photobooth on the event.
 
Are there any other experience like this? Is this ussual?
I mean, is Corkage Fee for photobooth a standard on Hotels?
Its just im so disappointed, i was very excited back then since it was supposed to be our very first Client.

Dapat inalam muna ng client kung merong mga ganyan na fees before putting in their reservation with you. Meron talagang mga hotels na ganyan lalo na kung meron silang in-house services din.

I've heard some hotels/venues have this sort of corkage fee now to push or promote their accredited suppliers. Maybe you should just include a deposit in your own contract with your client with the agreement that the deposit will be forfeited to you in case they cancel a day or 2 before the scheduled event. And then you may want to inquire with the different hotels/venues how to be accredited with them.

@vproject:  o nga sir, feeling ko dahil sa mga in-house services nila. I think i'll better do as what sir eag said, i'll inquire with hotels/venues on how to be an accredited service provider. Thanks.
 
@ead:  i think you're right sir, i'll better add this up on the contract. Thanks. I'll start inquiring about the accreditation process.
