Self catering apartments - do you charge a damage deposit.

If you charge a deposit deposit, how do you process it ? Do you preauthorise? Do you think it puts people off booking? 



Its very much a mixed bag of opinions.

Some will, some wont.

Yes some will not have the budget for a deposit,  but as to what % of the target audience that is, hard to say.


Deposit , prepaid, has to be handled directly with Guest.


A payment link, a list of options, IBAN shared,  revolut banking app, etc


Thank you . I know it’s a hard decision I don’t want to put off the majority of our responsible guests but unfortunately a couple lately have made me question whether we should.
