NilSS

What sort of a person hands over their passport to a motorcycle hire company

Of course he has, he's not going to be telling all and sundry he's a hotel manager on TVF otherwise.

But how would we find him to grass him up ? 🙂

Im thinking hotel management isnt a good choice for this guy, lol. 

I think he makes a very relevant point. He is running a hotel, has to complete reports to immigration and the info on a Thai DL won't suffice.

Driving licence contains the passport number.

 

Why is that not acceptable, ye twonk ?

Most likely already answered but dl does not have your visa details and tm number which is required by immigration, including entry date , visa type and point of entry

We're very successful thanks and my employers find me to be a good fit.

 

Any international standard hotel in Thailand (read 4+ stars) will ask you for your passport and if you say they don't you're lying.

Sweet Jasus, if I was the owner I would sack your twonk ass!

 

Letting potential customers walk away, being rude to them, making no attempt to explain what you need in order for them to stay in your employers hotel.

 

You say your employer thinks that you are a good fit? are you a tight one?

I'm not getting drawn into tittle tattle with you, but honestly these types are often so abusive to my staff, particularly the ones that live in Thailand and expect to be checked in with a DL. It's usually me that gets called to deal with them. I feel no shame in showing them the door thanks.

You are totally correct Mr NilSS, a Thai DL is NOT VALID as ID for checking into an hotel.

It is however, sufficient to board an internal flight.

I think it is just the way you said things that is getting up people's noses.

Be nice, be happy, but DO NOT accept DLs !

Being fined 2000 Baht for each customer that checks in without passport is not a good business model. This is why I'm in this job, and you're not.

This is true but a little effort on his part to explain to them to go get a copy and all is good in the Kingdom of Twonk.

Most hotels including mine have it clearly posted  on hotel page on every booking site as well as hotel own page. It clearly stated original passport must be presented at check in and only acceptable ID for foreigners is passport . Confirmation emails again state the same and yet people show up with out a passport claiming they do not need it or did not know or never had a problem and always without fail it’s a bad hotel, not stupid person who fails to read and/ or ignorant of the law.

 

yes customer walks away and hotel loose 2000-5000 baht , customer checks in and immigration come for visit ,or something happens and it escalates and it  cost hotel 50000 baht .

For those here who criticize the hotel manager from the OP,

below his a reminder of data he must send to immigration.

He can't get them without your passport (or copy of it and all recent stamps and TM.6)

They do get an explanation. They invariably disagree with it. I won't be disrespected in front of my staff, and I won't allow my excellent, well trained staff to be disrespected either.

Turning away paying guests probably isnt a great business model either.

Maybe you could call the bike hire shop and get the details over the phone, or would that be to much like customer service.

2000 fine is actually 20 000 for not reporting, plus another 30 or so for make it all go away 😉

As I said, 200 rooms, 80 percent occupancy, every night.
