    How does the Key to the World cards work? Do you put so much money on it and then use it or do you use it the whole time that you are there and then pay for it at the end of your trip?

    Hi Jamie,

    You can choose to leave a credit card for your incidental charges (souvenirs, tips, meals, snacks, etc). They will run an authorization on your card for a certain amount and you can charge to your room against that. You can also opt to put x amount of cash down on the room and use your Key to the World card to charge instead of having to carry cash around. If you put a credit card down for charging privileges but would prefer to pay in cash at the end of your trip, you can close out your balance upon check out.

    Hope this helps. If you need further clarification, please don't hesitate to send a follow-up question,
