Depending on your payment currency, PayPal may be available as a payment method. If PayPal is available, you will be able to select that option on the payment page. If you don't see the PayPal option, you will need to change to another currency or another payment method.
Once you have selected PayPal as your payment method, a new browser window will appear and you will be directed to the login screen on the PayPal website:
- Log in to your PayPal account
- Select one of the linked payment methods (for example, credit card or bank account) in the Select payment method section
- Click Continue
- Confirm the payment method, read PayPal's policies, then click Approve & Continue
Once payment for the full value of the reservation is authorized by PayPal, your reservation request will be sent (or your Instant Book reservation will be confirmed). You will only be charged once your reservation is confirmed. If your application is canceled, rejected or expired, the authorization on your PayPal account will be canceled and you will not be charged any fees.
You may need to link a bank account or credit card to your PayPal account to complete a reservation. This alternative payment source will only be used if your primary method was unsuccessful. The PayPal website contains more information on how to choose your preferred payment method.
How do I use my bank account to pay via PayPal?
- Funds can be transferred securely from your bank account to using PayPal Instant Transfer.
To use PayPal Instant Transfer, you need to log into your PayPal account and set it up as follows:
- Connect your bank account as a source of funding to your PayPal account. This process can take up to 1-2 days. The PayPal website contains more details on how to link a bank account to your PayPal account.
- Add a backup payment method (such as a credit card) to your PayPal account. PayPal will only use a backup payment method if your Instant Transfer transaction is unsuccessful.
Once your PayPal account has a linked bank account and a backup payment method, you can use PayPal Instant Transfer to pay. Follow the steps above and select your bank account as a funding source when you are asked to Choose how to pay on the PayPal site.
