This is what #bookdirect is all about.

Why is my stay not showing on the site?

It is normal that your stay doesn’t directly appear on the site. It is probably pending. Trafalco checks every new application thoroughly if it meets the conditions and if it doesn’t fail the security procedure.

How should a traveler making a booking in terms of paying?

This is totally up to the stay’s owner to choose the payment method. The payment is not done through! We advize you to keep your safety measures:

  • Emails with vast amounts of grammar errors should be handled with care
  • Emails asking you for a custom payment method should be closely examined,
  • Any email without contact information is rather fishy
