Why do I see the price changing on the listing?

Hosts can change their prices between seasons. However, prices cannot change once a booking has been confirmed.

Are there any additional fees for taxes?

White Roof B&B charges a 4% service fee every time a reservation is made. The booking fees are calculated from the reservation subtotal, which is the price of a reservation that has been set (before service fees have been added) in the listing's pricing settings. The service fee will be located on the final checkout page before submitting a reservation request.

Why does my bank statement reflect a different amount than my confirmation?

We recommend that you confirm with your bank or the credit card company. Some establishments do add charges for an international transaction. White Roof B&B does not have control over these charges.
