I see you require my credit card to confirm a booking, will it be debited? No, not debited. However your credit card may be authorised prior to your arrival (ie. 'pending'). You can pay with your credit card or by some other method when you stay. If you pay by some other method the authorisation will release and show back in your account within 3 working days.
