  • Is booking online secure?

    We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order, we offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

  • What sort of payment methods are accepted?

    We accept payment by credit card (American Express, Visa, Mastercard or Discover). We also accept checks if not booking less than 15 days prior to check-in, or you can pay via Bank or Wire Transfer.

  • Do you collect a Security Deposit?

    We do not collect a security deposit. Instead, we collect a $99 Damage Protection Insurance fee per unit, which covers up to $5,000 in accidental, non-intentional damage to the unit. If you choose not to do the Damage Protection Insurance – we require a $5,000 refundable security deposit – which will be refunded within 90 days of check-out.

  • What other fees are included in the total?

    Along with the Damage Waiver (insurance) fee, we also collect a cleaning fee and a lodging tax, required by the state of CA. How much money do we put down as a deposit to book with Wander Rentals? If booking 15 days or less from time of arrival, the entire balance is due to book the property, otherwise we require 1/2 of the Rental Rate and if you chose to do the Refundable Security Deposit in lieu of the Damage Insurance the $5,000 Refundable Security Deposit will be due upfront with your 1st payment. The balance of your total will then be due 14 days prior to your check-in.
