Hey Marxius,

Booking here is as safe as anywhere online. There is always a risk, but it is a very minimal one as far as I'm concerned and is far outweighed by the convenience. I've personally booked probably several dozen properties through Travellerspoint and never felt my details were compromised. The booking systems we use are very high profile and have a lot to lose if they compromise the security of your information. Hope it helps!

I've never booked through tp but have been to hostels found here which have been great

I've booked a couple of times on TP and it's been fine - as good and safe as anywhere else online. Good range of budget options too!

I have had one experience in which a booking party's deposit needed to be refunded; the booking agency did this immediately. As far as the accomodations go, you can always them ask for references.

Best,

Kevin
