Some travel agencies in the UK, for instance this one specify below.
Proof of accommodation fully paid, if possible, in the name of applicant. Should come directly from the hotel Return ticket fully paid, in the name of applicant
Another one says this below.
Proof of accommodation in France: Evidence of a hotel booking in France or a rental agreement,
This is inconsistent with what I have researched otherwise on the internet. I am a Pakistani citizen living and working in the UK and I wish to know if a Booking.com confirmed booking will suffice?
Some hotels have no way of prepaying and only accept payment at check-in/check-out so I am not sure what to do here. Confirming bookings do validate the debit card.
