I ask for a little deposit from guests immediately they book so that I am sure they'll show up on the dates they've booked.
Problem is many guests hardly notice the automated message that is sent to their inbox requesting for the deposit. I have had guests showing up when they didnt pay the deposit and I have no house for them.
How can i collect deposits more efficiently?
THe simple answer is there is no foolproof method, plenty of ideas though.
Unfortunately, you have to chase your guests for damage deposits....
