Why am I charged a deposit for some bookings?

Depending on some factors, there will be a deposit applied to your booking. Of course this deposit will be reimbursed to you after the booking period if there was no damage. This deposit will be paid to Gearbooker and not to the item owner. An administrative fee of 0.2% (with a €2.00 minimum) of the listing value will be charged when your deposit is reimbursed. Important: if we are able to fully verify your account, no deposit will be charged in specific cases. Contact us to apply for this full verification.
