How does the security bond work?

We process a pre-authorisation on your supplied card on the day of arrival or on Fridays for weekend arrivals. The amount is $500 or $1000 depending on the level of property.A pre-authorisation on a credit card is a temporary hold placed on funds to verify cardholder payment capability and to ensure sufficient funds. You will not see a ‘refund’ as the hold is not a charge/transaction. It will be automatically released by your bank within 5-10 business days from the date of the pre-auth.

If you are having any issues with your pre-auth release, please contact your bank.
