Safe to send credit card number?

I'm considering a 3 week trip to Borovets and Bansko, Bulgaria but I'm wondering how to safely transmit payment for reservations. Can anybody help with information on this?

Hi Powerdog, what do you mean? Are you sending them over a web site or how?

Depending on the site you are using, yes it should be perfectly safe. You can tell the type of site you are using by checking out other businesses that use it and if it offers security lock or paypal options. If it offers paypal, create a paypal account, it's worth the 5 min it takes to set up.

If it offers neither of those, find out if a deposit is put on the card at the time of the reservation. If there is a deposit, find out the amount, get a prepay card for one dollar more than that amount and put the deposit on that card. You can get a prepay card at most any bank as it's a card replacement for Amex travelers checks. If they try charging more, guess what, they can only get a buck out of it, not to mention, there is no tie to your actual bank account of CC number, therefor they can't trace the money to an account to charge more.

Hah, forgot one big point, If you make a payment on a card and you do not get the services, you can dispute the claim and get your money back. All major credit card companies will get you your money back, as they support the customer over the business.

I definitely think paypal is the way to go, some websites can be quite sketchy these days and look pretty legit

Most of the well-reputed companies using online reservations and payment systems have adopted Paypal as its the most secure method of money tranfer undoubtedly virtually available. go ahead and make your payments without fear
