Hi Liam,


Yes .

In your first auto  message template for new bookings,in first section state the terms and process for paying the deposit..


Set the options for deposit payment etc.


Set a time limit by which you can cancel the booking if no funds received, no communication from guest etc.



Create a message template for the door codes, key locations etc, which you will only use when everything is completed by the guest.


Kind regards
