Q. What is a Pre-Authorisation?

A. THis is a hold that you bank takes over an amount of money on your card. After about 5 working days (depending on your card type) it will expire if not needed by the motel. It only affects your available balance not your balance.

Q. When would the motel use my Bond?

A. The motel would only take your bond if you broke hotel rules eg. smoking in the room, room damage, unusual cleaning costs or you left owing any money.
