I see a preauthorization in my account, what is this for?

When making a booking request at CheckYeti using a credit card, your card is pre-authorized for the amount of the booking, this means the amount is reserved/blocked on your credit card, so it can be charged later only when the bookings if finally confirmed.

Only when the booking is accepted, the money will be charged from the pre-authorization. If the request is declined by the provider for any reason, the preauthorization will be released in the following 24h-48h and no charge will be made.
