    You can not charge more then 500€ for a damage if this is the amount you've set.

    Hi,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    I understand what you are saying. The thing is: if the deposit is too high, it's basically impossible to get people to book. At the same time you could get really unruly guests who could set you back a few thousand euros, especially for a fine property (like ours). No way to get out of this impasse.....?

    Well 500€ is already too high from my point of view. Even 250€.. Did you had a negative experience in the past with guest who damaged your place? What kind of guests do you usually have, drunk students? :)

    No, not at all

    And I'm probably just being overcautious.

    But before (a few years ago) I did it with airbnb and homelidays and never had real issues really. But this new place is quite more "upmarket" and the furniture is quite nice so...well...is there a way to scan a guest's credit card on arrival?

    With such policy you will probably receive less bookings. I wouldn't book your place for instance, specially if there are enough other properties in your area.
    Perhaps I accidently broke a jar, my card could be debited for hundreds of euros? No thanks, you never know. :)
     
    You can get yourself a POS terminal for your business, then you are able to pre-authorize CC's..
    But I think a written policy such is yours is scary enough to prevent getting "unrully" guests. Even a superb guests such as I am :D 

    In my policy it is written that we colect 50€ damage deposit in cash at the check-in. We never did collect money upfront neither we didn't charge it in the past 10+ years. Well only once because they were smoking inside. But no major accidents happened and we have quite a lot of guests (12 rooms, 4 apartment, 4 bungalows). Small accidental damages are tolerated.
