I have booked a flat with the next conditions (get standard letter from booking.com):
Your reservation 3 nights, 1 room Change Check-in Sunday 14 May 2017 (14:00 - 18:00) Check-out Wednesday 17 May 2017 (11:00 - 12:00) Prepayment No prepayment is needed. Cancellation cost Until 29 April 2017 23:59 [Yalta]: RUB 0 From 30 April 2017 00:00 [Yalta]: RUB 6,000
And today I recieve a letter (through booking.com) to transfer part of the cost (30%) to the bank card of the host. This is done without using the booking service so I feel confused: looks like no garantee of reservation or even getting money back in some case.
What should I do in this situation?
