We strongly recommend sending a detailed request to email@example.com in order to review your specific case and do not dispute a charge by your bank.
What happens when I dispute by my bank/CC provider
Hostaway OY operates globally. In some countries filing a dispute on a charge may seem normal. As EU based company the following rules apply when a dispute but the payment processor has been received.
