Crash and Dash

Updated: 2019-02-01.

Crash and Dash is lingo referring to a hotel guest who sleeps over and then leaves without paying.

A crash and dash is also known as a “recline and dash,” which rhymes with the origin idiom of “dine and dash.”

To mitigate some risks of crashing and dashing, a hotel might take note of any scanty baggage guests (those with little or no baggage). Hotel managers may choose to limit the credit these guests have or ask for full payment at check-in.
