Why was a hold placed on my payment method when I requested to book a booking?
When you submit a booking request, we place a hold on your payment method, called an authorization, for the full amount of the booking.
If your booking is accepted, the authorization will turn into a real charge and the amount will be deducted from your payment account.
If your request is declined or expires, the authorization will disappear or appear as a refund in your payment account. Depending on your bank's processing time, the release of the authorization may take up to 7 business days.
