I am just in the process of booking directly with a hotel in Ubud, which I have done several times before. This hotel however is asking for me to send then a photocopy of my credit card (both back and front) as well as completing their cc authorisation form (amount is blank) which will also have all these details provided?
It is is with a 4 star upmarket resort, so is certainly a legitimate property, however I am just a bit concerned about sending an actual photocopy of my credit card, as well as the authorisation form via email - should I be? any security issues? Have never encountered this request before?
