When will my $100.00 be returned?
A pre-authorisation is a freeze of elected funds which hold for an approximate 5-10 business days, depending on your bank’s individual terms and conditions, before it automatically releases. The pending transaction will be listed on your bank statement and once the hold period has expired, the funds will release and become accessible again. You will not see a refund or credit come through, simply the pending transaction will no longer be listed. If you are unsure whether or not the $100.00 has been released, you can call the resort to see if their were any late charges applied to your reservation or you may contact your bank.
