If the customer's credit card is due to expire before the customer is due to stay then the customer must provide the accommodation supplier with their new card details when the new card is issued. The Accommodation Supplier may cancel a booking if the customer does not inform the accommodation supplier of their new card details or make alternative arrangements for guaranteeing the booking.
