The usual and standard answer to my mail at Booking.com. I will be looking for a reliable and cheap VCC and therefore I will ask a 10% higher price for clients.
I will like to inform you that the Bank account details are just informative, Booking.com does not make bank transfers of the reservations that are generated through our platform.
The only method of collecting the reservation money for the property is through the online payments program.
What is Online Payments by Booking.com?
Booking.com online payment is a service provided to members by which Booking.com facilitates payment between the guest and the property.
How does it work:
Customers makes a reservation using their online payment method, Booking.com will charge the customer and property will send virtual credit card with the total amount of the transaction.
Remember you have to leave the commission on the virtual credit card.
Thanks a lot Ana. I don´t really understand why other platforms like Airbnb do have the policy for Cuban hosts for sending money on European bankaccounts and Booking.com is not offeirng this option. Please inform me if you achieve an answer of Booking. We shall ask Cuban owners how they manage with this problem.
Hi Ana, if you get a reaction form Booking, I am interested too. It would be very nice if we could hold the currency to Euro. I wonder if there are other options left. Like let the client pay cash in the house.
Do you have any notice how other owners in cuba arrange it. There must be an other way. I cannot imagine that they all use VCC. cubans are very ´inventive.´ I like that.
Is it possible to get paid at the account of a Cuban bank? My wife has one and she is owner also.
