  • You can find more information about charging a damage deposit here.

  • You need to provide your guests with an invoice when they check out. This is because the reservation agreement is a direct transaction between you and your guest, not with Booking.com. You can provide the invoice on paper, by email, or both.

    Here’s some more important information about invoices:

    • We hold no responsibility for invoicing, and we don’t send invoices for any reservations to you or your guests.
    • Make sure to issue invoices in your guest’s name or another name you’ve agreed on with them.
    • You can use your invoices for tax declarations or other record keeping purposes.
  • For more information about invoices, see this article.

  • If a guest makes changes to a reservation like changing the number of guests, you may need to raise or lower the reservation fee. To do so, contact us for assistance with changes to the reservation.

  • The total amount shown on your invoice only includes amounts we charge commission on, such as room rates, certain taxes, and other fees. To find out more about local taxes, see this article.
