No, it is not permitted to request a deposit outside the platform.
The deposit is paid by the Traveller as part of the rent and is therefore collected by Goboony. We guarantee the financial safety of Travellers and Advertisers. We protect the payments and offer Advertisers the opportunity to be compensated for damage that may have occurred during the trip.
In some circumstances, we do allow the Advertiser to receive the deposit directly, if it is stated in the insurance policy. Please note that this must be clearly written on the advertisement.
✔️ All payments outside the Goboony platform - including the Deposit - are a violation of our Terms & Conditions.
