Actually if a hacker had their motive set, even the card details are not sent by email also can be sniff out.

Lets say u called and tell them personally, they key in into their system, its still subjected to their security policy. Most CC scams are due to server getting hacked and not cos of email containing the details.

Can tell them to hold the rooms for u when u dun have Cc meh? If everyone call to book without cc and fly them aeroplane...... HahA

内江商旅饭店 and 百悅商務旅館 allows me to book without giving CC.

Only condition is three days prior arrival, need to call them to confirm the booking again, otherwise they will not honour the reservation.
