    make or get or have

    is it make/get/have a reservation? ex:"Can I make a reservation?"

    I thinks it's make, if so, Is it possible to use get in spoken english, thus " Can I get a reservation?also Can I have a reservation?


    Situation: I'm in a spa, I wanna get a massage but there's no available therapist, what will i say? "can I have/make a reservation?"


    Thanks!

    Re: make or get or have

    In my dialect, we usually say, "make a reservation." Everyone would understand "get" or "have" to mean the same thing.

    Re: make or get or have

    I would use 'appointment' rather than 'reservation'

    Can I have/make/get an appointment for a massage?

    Can I make/have a reservation for a room (hotel)

    Re: make or get or have

    And when you've made/got it you say either 'I have a reservation' or 'I've got a reservation' or 'I made a reservation earlier'. Often, you wouldn't mention the reservation at all, but say 'I phoned earlier - there should be a table for four in the name of Mr Thunderpleasant'.
