A breakage deposit is a sum of money that is paid by the renter, either by credit card at time of payment or cash on arrival at the property, this is used as security in order to cover any damage that may occur during your stay, if there is no damage then the deposit is given back in full, if there is any damage to the property or its contents then the owner will deduct a reasonable amount to cover these and refund the difference.
Breakage waiver is a non refundable breakage insurance that will cover up to a maximum of £300 of accidental damage to the property and its contents.
Check to see if you paid the refundable breakage deposit or the non-refundable breakage waiver. Some properties only offer the waiver option. You can check to see what you paid in your renters area under 'view booking/make payment'.Your breakage deposit is automatically refunded to your card, the date is dependent on the length of time after you have completed your stay, this is stipulated by the owner to give them enough time to check for any damage and make any claims. This usually takes around 2 weeks. The exact date though will be in your contract and you will also be able to view the date from within your account.
If you have paid the refundable deposit check the day it is due to be returned. You can see this in your renter’s account in your terms and conditions and also on the ‘view booking/make payment’ page. If the date has passed check which card you used to make the payment, ensure it hasn't expired? If the card has expired you will be given the option to add your bank account details into your account and we will transfer the refund. We will contact you if this needs to be done.

If the property is marked as instant booking then this step occurs immediately and you get an automated email giving you instructions on how to pay. Our owners require their customers to pay a deposit upon booking followed by the balance prior to taking occupation. If the booking is a late booking you may also be required to pay the balance at the same time as the deposit.
Most owners will also ask for a breakage deposit/breakage waiver at the same time as the balance is due. The exact amounts and timing will depend on the individual owner and the timings will be clearly presented to you on screen and by email.
The deposit/full amount must be paid before the said due date to secure the booking. After payment of the deposit you will both have access to each others contact details

Reviews from customers that have been processed through the system improve the members index as well as contributing to the customer star rating. The more favourable the reviews, the better the index rating. However please remember that the index is primarily about booking performance so reviews do not have a great effect on the points.
Reviews from guests added by the property manager(for example from guests who stayed previous to the property manager joining Villarenters or guests that have stayed but have not been booked through the system) do not give any index advantage.
We do this because we are only able to verify guests that have booked through the system and this gives customers a true assesment of what we know about the property.
