What is a direct debit authorisation?

 When you make a booking, we have in place a direct debit authorisation of €1 (£0.80) on your credit/debit card in order to verify its validity, in the same way hotels or car hire companies do.

Whether your booking is accepted or rejected by the dog sitter, €1 (£0.80) will not be taken out of your account. However, it may be that the amount of €1 (£0.80) is blocked in your account, for one to two days maximum, after the direct debit authorisation.
