    Yes Philadelphia, I agree with you as many of us do re OTA’s . I too struggle with false or no funds in credit cards that are offered via Booking.com. Interestingly I have had, over the last few months, several from Booking.com that are prepaid by the guests to Booking.com so, like Expedia , I receive the virtual credit card details to process the payment for the room’s full amount. It has become necessary to process the first nights payment as soon as the booking arrives. If the card is invalid, I immediately process this via Booking.Com as an invalid card. The system then allows, as we know, the guest to rectify the card or they or we cancel the booking. Yes, processing dodgy cards has added to the workload. I am envious though, 30 plus bookings for Booking.Com for the weekend !
