What is the usual procedure of payment?
There is not a fixed standard of how payment is arranged with the owner; however many use the following method
- On making a reservation, 20-50% percent of the total amount is paid
- The balance is paid between 3 to 10 weeks before arrival
You may also be asked to pay a refundable deposit upon arrival, in case of damage to contents of the property. Most owners will ask you to make a bank transfer. Some will accept cheques while more and more have set up their own paypal account in order for the clients to pay by credit card.
