. If your name is printed on it and it has a visa or matsarcerd logo you are fine .. But one thing you need to know is you need to have at least one night stay and tax and resort fees in the account . This will cover your deposit and if you choose to pay cash at check out you will have that option You should check with the hotel because deposits vary . Best thing is to just have the entire amount in th account Also . Whoever books the room has to be there for check-in . So dont use a credit card of someone who will not be there to check in . you will loose your reservation .Hope this helps
