Participants request the official travel agency to book their room in the hotel selected from the list below, stating clearly their names, organization, confirmation ID from the ITU Registration service and method of payment as well as date of arrival and date of departure. The travel agent will calculate the total costs and inform the participant who can pay this amount either via bank transfer or with an American Express credit card. In case of bank transfers, participants are requested to send to the Travel agency the bank confirmation of the transfer in order to confirm the booking. If payment is to be made by Amex, a copy of the credit card that clearly shows the name, expiration date and card number should be sent to the Travel Agency.
