How does AlwaysOnVacation Traveler Protection Work?
AlwaysOnVacation Traveler Protection provides a comprehensive umbrella of protection for travelers during the entire property rental experience – from delivering payment protection, protecting against fraud, pre-screening rental properties, and offering 24 hour customer service support.
Some AlwaysOnVacation properties require you to book a vacation stay by paying the property owner directly, while other properties have chosen to activate the AlwaysOnVacation Booking System. The AlwaysOnVacation Booking System allows your credit card payment to be held directly by AlwaysOnVacation and doesn’t get released to property owners until 24 hours after you check out – thus providing you with further protection.
The AlwaysOnVacation Booking System Traveler Protection protects your payment when you select the “Book It Now” button on the property page and book the property using the AlwaysOnVacation Booking System.
The AlwaysOnVacation Direct Payment Traveler Protection is provided when you select the “Contact The Owner” button on a property page to submit a booking inquiry and book directly with the owner.
