    booking :- 1. advance reservation: an arrangement by which something such as a theater seat or hotel room is kept for somebody's use at a specific time

    reservation - arrangement made beforehand: an advance booking, e.g. of a seat, hotel room, or ticket

    Será que "booking" implica el pago anticipado y "reservation" no?

    Ya ves, muchos anyos después, se le presenta la misma duda a otro y la pregunta queda sin resolver :(

    It is the same thing, but it is more common to hear "booking" in US and "reservation" in british English (I've been working in hotels on both sides of the world and that's the only difference I found).

    Cheers to all!
