FAQ For Guests

Because you have straight contact with the host of the accommodation and the opportunity to communicate prior booking with the host of your choice. And you book directly commission-free. Many hosts give lowest price guarantee and on request remarkable direct booking discounts. The accommodation rates of all major accomodation portals include high agency commissions between 10-25%. These commisions have to be paid when booking in such portals. Zakynthost.gr doesn’t work commission-based, only a small ad fee per year or per month has to be paid from the host. So direct booking can be therefore very advantageous for both sides.
Yes. Your personal credit card data are secured by the HTTPS protocol. Payments using Paypal can also be provided. You can use your credit card and Paypal together, even if you don't have a Paypal account until now. Then your credit card details are never passed to the payee. Many times you can also book without paying deposit. However, then your credit card information is usually required as a payment guarantee.
Payment Hints:
Deposits or advance payments: You should generally take care to make low deposits or advance payments if your arrival date is more than 6 weeks in the future. If it is less than 6 weeks, you can request at any time a chargeback from your credit card company or PayPal.
Some offers are particularly favorable but a refund of the deposit is expressly excluded from the host. In case you want to book a non refund special offer, you should consider a trip cancellation insurance at least. So you control everything and you are always better protected than with non binding customer protection programs from major accommodation portals.

According to the Greek law of the protection of the tourist every host is obliged within 21 days prior arrival to refund 100% of all made deposits and payments. For later cancellations it is allowed that max. 50% of the room rate can be charged. But many hosts offer better conditions, especially in low and mid season.
