Admit it my fellow VR owners…
The only reason you got in this business was for the excitement of dealing with security deposits, right?
I know, I know, vacation rentals are a great business, but there are several hassles that we must deal with everyday.
Rather than bore you with my own security deposit process, I brought in an expert, John Amato, who deals with LOTS of Vacation Rental Owners. John is the co-founder of Bookerville VR Booking Software so he sees all the issues from every angle possible.
I use LeadPlayer for all my videos (watch the END of the video to see why)

- The pros & cons of security deposits.
- The psychological benefit of a deposit.
- John’s best practices and things all owners should consider.

*Resource Spotlight: Flipkey’s take on Security Deposits
One of my top tips for any vacation home owner to increase bookings is a Free Listing from Flipkey.
Owners that are NOT using Flipkey are missing a huge risk-free source of bookings. Speaking of security deposits, since Flipkey handles the money, you don’t have to manage the deposit! If the guest is due the entire refund, do nothing and it get’s refunded to the guest automatically. In the rare event you need to keep a partial or full deposit, just alert Flipkey within 7 days, and then Flipkey sends you that amount, and the guest the balance. Try Flipkey for Free here.
Easy. Who doesn’t like easy?
