PAYMENT
IN ORDER TO VALIDATE YOUR BOOKING A DEPOSIT OF 419€ MUST BE SENT WITHIN 24 HOURS BY WESTERN UNION SERVICE TO OUR AGENT:

Adrian Sawka
81 Nelson Rd
London
SW19 1HU
United Kingdom

IMPORTANT! - Our system will automatically assign you the first available agent to your transaction. We have agents in the following countries: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Greece, Austria, Italy, France, Australia, Japan.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING THE DEPOSIT:

Payment must be completed using Western Union service in 24hrs. Western Union Money Transfer is the only service that has ultimate authentication of the identity of the receiver of funds. Several IDs and utility bills are required before the funds are paid. Therefore, no one else can pick up the money.


Step 1 - Estimate the cost to transfer money
Step 2 - Find a Western Union agent with Western Union locator
Step 3 - Visit your local Western Union agent. Bring one or more forms of government issued identification, such as:
-Passport
-Driver's license
-National identity card
-Government issued ID
-Airbnb agent name and address

Step 4 - Complete a simple money transfer form. Hand the completed form to your Western Union agent along with the money you want to send, plus fees. You'll receive a receipt and reference number for the transaction.




Step 5 - Confirm your deposit by replying to this message with a copy (photo) from the Western Union receipt and the following information:
- Reference Number / MTCN - 10 digit number
- Sender's full name and address
- Receiver's full name (Airbnb Properties Limited Agent)
- Total amount sent


Once our agent will confirm the transfer we will inform the host that you are a verified tenant and the rental agreement can be completed.

After the payment is confirmed, the landlord has two business days to send you the keys and visit the apartment;
- If accepted: you will sign the contract and move in the same day you visit the apartment.
- If you refuse to rent the apartment, Airbnb will give you a full refund of the deposit.

If you have any problem or delay in the payment procedure, please reply to this email immediately!
