Accepting Online Payments
Nowadays holidaymakers prefer to pay for travel services online. HomeAway.co.uk has made its online payment services even more appealing with an extra layer of payment guarantee.
Using HomeAway Payments will also help avoid charge-back disputes, as guests have to agree to your rental agreement before paying. Learn more about accepting online payments here.
If you live in a country not currently supported by HomeAway Payments, we strongly recommend you accept credit card payments through PayPal or another merchant account provider so guests can pay securely online.
Holidaymakers should not pay by cash or instant money transfer services such as Western Union or Money Gram. These payment methods are highly susceptible to fraudulent activity and anyone using them will not be eligible for any of the payment protection guarantees offered by HomeAway.co.uk, including the Carefree Rental Guarantee from Europ Assistance.
Property Managers using an integrated software to process payments
Property managers who have an integrated software with HomeAway and accept online bookings on their property adverts, provide secure payment methods for holidaymakers. Guests pay securely online via credit card through HomeAway to the property manager’s integrated software.
Property Managers using HomeAway Payments
Property managers who use HomeAway Payments in lieu of an integrated software also provide guests a secure way to pay online for a holiday rental. When a property manager sends a payment request via HomeAway Payments, holidaymakers can pay securely online via a credit card.
