We can answer Yes to everyone of these questions.Be safe with your booking and holiday, run the check list first! If in any doubt then phone the company and ask all the relevant questions! There are lots of companies and owners offering rentals on the Italian lakes and this can be very confusing when searching for that ideal holiday home!

The payment site/website needs to have an "https", address, not just an http. This will often be coloured as well see below. If you pay by Credit card you are covered by the "Consumer Credit Act" or variations depending on country and therefore the card provider is also liable in case of problems.Be careful with use of your card however and make sure the transaction is inreal time. If you do not receive an immediate card payment receipt from your bank via email, or the owner or company is given 24 hours to approve the payment, your details are stored somewhere!
