Ever paid for VRBO rental in cash?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I found an apartment I really want to rent for a few days in Amsterdam on VRBO. The listing has 6 good reviews and lots of other information. I emailed the manager a couple times, and he's written back promptly with lots of information. He says to confirm the reservation, I need to give him my credit card details as a guarantee, but pay cash upon arrival.

I have only used home rental companies like this twice before, so I'm not sure if this is normal or not. Has anyone else had a similar payment arrangement? If you were me, would you go through with this? The VRBO website says never pay in cash. It just makes me a little nervous; I'd rather use PayPal or something. Thoughts? Thanks.
