    Can anyone help with advice about accepting credit card payments from guests for your two holiday apartments? Trying to work out if it is cost effective to get a credit card machine? Or is Paypal the way forward? Currently we are taking cash/cheque or BACS but this isn't always convenient, especially for overseas guests. Any advice from other accommodation providers is much appreciated! Thank you.

    This response is probably too late to be of use to you, but I'll offer my opinion anyway. Until now I've only taken cash, cheque or BACS payments. I set up a paypal business account to take card payments, but am very dissatisfied with how that works, and don't use it at all now. However I use the freetobook booking system ( it's very good) and they're offering what appears to be a good rate for a credit card payment system. I've signed up but haven't got it operational yet so can't give any feedback as yet. Check out their website.
