Hotel piracy is a new epidemic in the meeting and events industry. Scam companies may reach out notifying you that AED has contracted outside vendors to assist you with booking your hotel reservation – something AED would not do. These fake companies then pressure you or your office staff to provide them with your credit card information to book your hotel stay directly through them. If you fall for their trick, you will arrive at the meeting location and there will not be a reservation under your name, but your fees for the room would have been stolen from your credit card. If you are contacted in such a manner, please capture as much information as possible and send their contact information to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Do not make any reservations for the Corinthia with another organization, if you do we will be unable to assist you with any issues that may arise. Only use official AED materials to register for the meeting and book your hotel stay – never work with a third party, book directly through our website or email communication. We take the privacy of our members very seriously. AED will never release your contact information to a third party vendor. Also, keep in mind, this situation could happen to other similar societies or organizations for any meeting, conference, or convention you might attend.

TRAVEL TIPS

Travel Documents

In much of Europe, the only document a U.S. citizen needs is a passport. Please check the expiration date of your passport, and note that it must be valid for at least three months after your ticketed return date to the U.S.  In addition, the Czech Republic requires that you carry proof of health insurance. Be sure to check the requirements for any other countries you may visit during your trip, and the specific requirements for your own country if you are not a U.S. citizen.

Currency

Local currency is the Czech Koruna (CZK), but Euros are accepted almost everywhere. You can use your debit card to get Czech currency at a local ATM. Most of the outdoor markets are cash only and accept CZK and Euros, U.S. currency is not accepted. Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted, and American Express is less common. Before your trip, be sure to check with the issuer of your credit card as to any foreign transaction fees, and inform them of where you will be traveling so that your foreign transaction goes through successfully. To check current exchange rates, a good resource is www.xe.com.

Electricity

The U.S. runs on 110 volts, and Europe on 220 volts. Most appliances and electronics these days are dual voltage, be sure to check all of your items.  If they are dual voltage, all you will need is an adapter that allows the U.S. plug to fit into the European outlet. At the Corinthia Hotel, there is one U.S. outlet in the bathroom, all other outlets are European. There are no USB outlets.
