Guest houses that Accept Credit Cards


Dr_Dave

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be a good idea if fellow mongers posted which guest houses they have stayed in that except credit cards. I could have done with this information before, because I had booked to stay at the China Garden and with it looking like a really decent place, but I have recently found out it is cash only or paypal. I am very dubious at using paypal due to them being useless if something goes wrong! I have previously paid for a stay at the Billabong using my credit card with no problems. Please post your guest house or hotel that excepts credit cards below.

 

 

 

I have been stung by using paypal before therefore I do not like to use it even though I know the China Garden has a excellent reputation.

 

However I would prefer to pay with my credit card so I have protection!

Tourism businesses worldwide are stung by these credit card transactions. A client sends you an order, you get a CC authorization and they never show up. Of course, the CC number has been stolen so not only do you not get any money for your troubles but the CC processor dings you for submitting a declined number.

 

This is why merchants are turning to PayPal. PP has some advanced algorithms to detect the scam and doesn't penalize you for being a victim.

 

Is it fair to expect a business that does not know you to take a chance? How about giving PayPal another chance? Merchants also deserve some protection.

Maybe they do deserve some protection but not at the loss of mine.

I see the sense in not taking a credit card booking until  the customer turns up in person and then the card is processed.

But using paypal means the customer loses all their protection, and I know this because I got scammed by the Chinese and paypal did jack shit about it.

Why can't you use your credit card to pay PayPal?

 

Protection isn't meant to be unlimited.  It is our duty to take reasonable steps to avoid a scam.  In the case of a guesthouse, it is unlikely that they will disappear.

I have emailed this customer to inform him he can pay via Pay Pal at "any point" during his stay, I imagined his concern was paying up front for his "long stay" and having a problem if he decided to check out earlier for any reason. We run our business with integrity and we are more then happy for our guests to pay when they check out at the end of their stay! We want repeat customers not a bad reputation ;-)
