We quote our prices for payment by check because that is how most of our guests prefer to pay. Also, our guests understand that paying by check keeps our rates low. Credit card processors charge around 3% of the total transaction cost in order to handle the payments – this would add over $200 to our weekly rate. Most companies simply build the fees into their prices as the “cost of doing business”, but we’d prefer to save everyone 3%.  And that 1% cash back your credit card offers you… well it is coming from the processing fees. Would you rather pay 3% more and get 1% back or just pay less to begin with?  It’s your choice and we like to give our guests options. If you choose to use a credit card to pay for your rental, we add a 3% convenience fee to cover the added costs.
