of transaction costs on credit card charges

How much money can my hotel save with these transaction costs?

Well, this depends on the bank you use that handles your credit card transactions. But a simple calculation tells us that when you have a hotel with 20 rooms, each €150,- a night, with an occupancy rate of 75%, and 50% of your transactions are handled via a credit card, you pay a total of €1050,- a month when you use the ING as bank. If you use our online credit card terminal you pay almost half. If you let us handle your credit card transactions you only pay €580,- a month. That saves you €470,- a month!

How (not) to deal with credit card payments?

Lots of hotelier’s scan credit card and save the print in one of their folders. Kind of surprising, because your guests’ credit card data is highly sensitive information, which should be cared for with caution. Hiding credit card information in a folder beneath your reception is not the right place, in our opinion, as it is the first-place people with bad intentions will look. 

Why a credit card terminal is perfect for independent hotels and B&Bs?

A lot of business guests use the credit card of the company. By use of RoomRaccoon’s credit card terminal, your hotel or B&B would be much more attractive for those guests.
