What would you suggest for a Bed & Breakfast

Hi all, 

We have a bed and breakfast in which you can check availability online and then reserve a room.  Does anyone know how this is traditionally handled? Before we got the website, they would take the order over the phone and verify the card, then only charge on checkin. 

Is this a case where Partial Authorization Transactions would be appropriate? Say maybe a $1 partial charge to a 140 dollar stay, then charge the rest on check in?

You can use CIM to saved and verify their Credit card info, then use it fo the charge when they checkin.

 

Partial Authorization Transactions is not what you think is does. Read
