Article Sections: 

If the guest is paying by bank transfer, you’ll receive their payment over the course of the month following their check-out. We’ll transfer the payment by the 15th of the month.

A bank transfer might take up to a few days, depending on your bank.


We calculate the monthly payment by subtracting your unpaid invoices from the remittance advice. The remittance advice is a document showing the total revenue earned from your reservations with a departure date during the previous month.

The final amount transferred to you = the remittance advice – invoices


You’ll find these documents in your extranet. Log in and click on the ‘Finance’ tab. Select ‘Invoices’ from the list and you’ll see a record of payments.

To see your remittance advice, select ‘Payments from Booking.com’. To check your invoices, select ‘Payments to Booking.com’.

All documents can be downloaded as a PDF by clicking on the document number.


The total reservation amount on your invoice includes your room-rate amount only.

The total reservation amount on your remittance advice is your room-rate amount plus all additional fees (excluding city tax).

This means that the total reservation amount on your remittance advice can also include cleaning, parking or breakfast fees. We don’t charge commission on these services.


If you're using the Payments by Booking.com option, we charge the guest on your behalf, so you don’t have to change your day-to-day operations.

However, as the guest made a reservation at your accommodation directly – and therefore has an agreement with you for the reservation – you’ll need to provide an invoice at check-out, either on paper, via email or both.

Please note that we can’t send you the invoice for the reservation, it must be issued by you.


Booking.com will assist with the process of refunding the guest.

If you're receiving payments for your reservations from us via bank transfer: There’s no action required from your side. We’ll refund the guest and this amount will be excluded from our payment to you.


We send you invoices for legal purposes. As you have a contract with Booking.com, we will always send you an invoice. Also, we recommend that you keep these invoices for accounting purposes.

In the exceptional case that your invoice amount is higher than your remittance advice amount, you’ll need to pay the difference.


The Direct Debit form is required as an approval to deduct funds from your bank account in the event that the invoice amount is higher than your remittance advice value. In this case, you’ll need to pay the difference.


You can change your bank details in the extranet by clicking on the ‘Finance’ tab and selecting ‘Bank details’ then ‘Bank details for receiving payments’.

Click on the ‘Edit’ button at the bottom of this section. It takes five working days for the bank account to be activated in the system.
