What is pre-authorisation

A pre-authorisation is a temporary hold of a specific amount of the available balance on a credit or debit card that is provided upon booking. The pre-authorisation is not a charge and no funds are debited from your account. It is simply an amount held in reserve on your card by your bank to provide security for everyone involved. 

Pre-authorisation will occur 3 days prior to your event, or at the time of booking confirmation if the event is within 3 days.
