I found what seems to a great apartment for EUR780 for 4 nights and put in a booking request.
The owner then declined the request and sent a quote where they asked for a 50% deposit through TripAdvisor plus a 25EUR cleaning fee and the rest in cash on arrival.
Is this legitimate or a scam? The property has TripAdvisor Payment Protection but does that only apply if the full amount is paid through TripAdvisor?
Thanks for your help.
