As Hostelworld is PCI compliant, there are a number of restrictions on credit card details
- Credit card details are stored in the system up until 7 days after the scheduled check out date, due PCI Regulations.
- Unable to store & display CVV/CVC code. However if your business is listed as an accommodation provider you should be able to charge anyway by bypassing the code. Contact your bank or the credit card company for more information.
