Hi there

This may help you: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/pages/terms.html

Incidentally, questions regarding the use of this site or about TripAdvisor themselves should be posted in the Support Forum here: tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowForum-g1-i12105-TripAd… so if you find your post has gone it may well be moved over there.

This forum is for suggestion on how to improve the site itself and its functions.

Hope that helps

CTK01,

What do you mean by 'security'?

Actual security as in keeping burglars out? Or security as in the safety of your deposit payment? Or security as in not getting ripped off if you book excursions through the owners? Or, perhaps security of your actual booking?

Whatever you are asking; I think that TA are not in a position to answer any questions at all regarding security. They display FlipKey adverts free of charge and free of any liability.

Best wishes,

Edward.

CTK01 - they do not guarantee the rentals or any monies you give the Vacation Rental. I am not aware of any website that does that - even for hotels.

How do you address the problem of getting a refund of rent & security deposit on a Flip Key vacation rental abroad,where the person you rented from turns out to be himself a renter who is in arrears on his rent to the property owner,who does not authorize sublets) and has cut off utilities and barred access; and the one you rented from(in U.S.) has not responded to the problem?

Payment in full not made by credit card but by bank transfer as requested.

Hi VistaGina;

You will need to contact FlipKey about this problem.
