Guests pay only when your host accepts your request to book. The payment will be held in escrow until 24 hours after successful check-in.
All major credit and debit cards are accepted. When you make a request to book, we will pre-authorize the total payments due for the rental on your credit or debit card. If the host accepts your request, your card will be charged. If they do not accept your request or your request times out (24 hours), the pre-authorization will be voided and released back to your credit/debit card. The pre-authorization should disappear from your statement within 24-48 hours, however some banks may take longer.
Paypal is also accepted for booking request. Your Paypal account will be pre-authorized when you make a reques to book. If you use a debit card or bank account linked to you paypal account, there may be a hold on your authorized funds for the booking amount. If the host accepts your request, your paypal account will be charged. If they do not accept your request or your request times out (24 hours), the pre-authorization hold will be released and the transaction will be voided.
