All you need to know about Direct Debit
What is Direct Debit?
A Direct Debit authorises Booking.com to collect payments from your account automatically when they are due. You give this authorisation by completing a Direct Debit Mandate form. Once authorised, Booking.com can automatically take payments from you.
What are the benefits of Direct Debit?
Direct Debit is the safest and most cost-effective method of paying regular or occasional invoices.
It saves money in transaction costs.
It is automated, so you do not need to remember to make payments.
It saves time, as there are no forms to complete along with every payment.
It is secure and safe, leaving no room for human mistakes.
It is digitalised, with notifications available at all times with debiting amounts and times.
It is guaranteed, and you are entitled to a refund for any incorrect debits. If your debit is with a SEPA Direct Debit, the funds can be recovered via your bank up to 8 weeks from the debit date without any reason, and up to 13 months using a comprehensible reason.

When will my account be charged if I pay via Direct Debit?
After an invoice is issued, we’ll debit your bank account 14 days later. Keep in mind that Direct Debit processes take 4 to 5 days to complete.
The invoice will appear as paid (showing in green) on the extranet after a request is sent to your bank for payment.
If the Direct Debit doesn’t go through, the invoice will appear in red, i.e. unpaid, on the extranet.
