Frequently Asked Questions

What are the fees for using Know Your Guest’s damage deposit solution?

We take a non-refundable admin fee for deposit handling from your guest.

How long does it take to refund a guest their deposit if there is no damage?

If no damage is caused during their stay, by default we will release your guest’s deposit 10 days after checkout.

Do I need to use either Know Your Guest’s Intelligent Guest Screening or ID Capture solutions to use the Damage Deposit?

No you do not need to, however, our Damage Deposit works best when combined with our Intelligent Guest Screening or ID Capture.

What is the difference between a damage waiver/damage deposit?

The principal difference between damage waivers and deposits is that a damage waiver is a smaller, one-time, non-refundable fee; whereas, a damage deposit is a larger fee paid upfront and then remitted to the guest after check-out.
