Deferred payment is a feature that allows you to book pre-paid property rates without the need for immediate payment, giving you the flexibility to pay 7 days before the free cancellation date.
Deferring payment is eligible for:
- Property bookings only
- Bookings made 14 and 280 days before arrival
- Refundable rates and rates that do not require a deposit
- Expedia collect rates (Expedia takes the payment, not the property)
- Standalone and package rates
Follow these two easy steps to book a property and defer its payment. To learn how to manage these types of bookings, click here.
Select the property rate
After finding the refundable property to book, you need to select the rate. Take into consideration that not all rates are eligible for deferring payment. Once the rate is selected, you must pick the 'Pay Now' option.
During the checkout, select the option to defer payments
On the checkout page, look for the deferred payment green banner. Check your agency’s deferred payment balance. If your balance is too low, you can pay off other deferred payment bookings, which will add credit to your balance.
To book using deferred payment, select the option to ‘Pay on xxx’. On this date, the credit card used will be charged accordingly (you can change the payment date from the homepage).
Complete the booking by selecting Buy Now.
Note: other payment options cannot be used when using deferred payment.
