Do you require a Security Bond upon Check-In

Runaway Bay Motor Inn requires a valid photo ID, along with a credit card authorisation (pre-auth) of $200 AUD at time of check-in. This may be used to cover any additional costs incurred during guest’s stay including, but not limited to, any breakages, damage or additional cleaning charges in excess of the normal level of cleaning, extra guests and or extra bedding used beyond that declared on original booking. The pre-authorisation will affect your available funds balance and spending limit. For more information on this practice we suggest the cardholder contact their card issuer.
