Tourists left stunned by ‘game-changing’ hotel key card trick – The Sun

TOURISTS have praised a "game-changing" clever hotel card key trick which lets you leave the room without cutting off the electricity.

Most hotel rooms require a key card to be placed into the slot to allow electricity in the room, like the lights and the power.

This can be a pain if you want to leave your gadgets or phones charging in your room when you want to head to the swimming pool, or to leave the air conditioning on.

But it turns out that the dilemma of how to keep your phone charging or whether to leave your other half snoozing without access to light was completely unnecessary.

One tourist revealed how you don't have to leave the room key in the slow – but that any keycard will do.

A Londoner who goes by the name of Katyagar Moonagon on Twitter made the revelation herself.

She said: “[I] wanted to charge my battery pack whilst I was I eating dinner, but needed my keycard.”

She posted a picture of her Waitrose loyalty card in the slot instead – and revealed it did the trick.

She added: “I turned off all the lights manually, as not to be too wasteful, just needed to bump up the old battery pack for an hour or two.”

The picture was retweeted hundreds of times, with some people calling the revelation the "hack of the century".

Fellow Londoner Suzanne Azzopardi said: “I’m 42 and didn’t know you could put any card in the bloody hotel light thingy.”

Even hotel works were amazed by the trick.

A Twitter user called Ronan Alex Dunne said: “I'm dumbfounded. I worked in 5 Star Hotels and never came across that.”

Other people on Reddit shared their methods too, with some people putting in a piece of folded cardboard to replicate the card, before putting it in the slot.

Another genius hotel trick shared on the internet is how useful a cheap doorstop can be when travelling.

The simple rubber stop can be used while staying at every hotel room to stop unwanted intruders from breaking and entering.

And a flight attendant has revealed how to tell if your hotel room has really been cleaned – and it starts with the bed.
