What is needed to charge a VCC via RoomRaccoon?

Your booking channels (i.e., Expedia, etc) must include the VCC details in the reservation information they are sending to RoomRaccoon. If this is not yet happening, please contact your booking channels directly and ask for this.

How are the VCCs charged in RoomRaccoon?

VCCs are automatically charged with RaccoonPay on the VCC activation date from 01h00 UTC. The charge will reflect as a payment in the reservation.

What is the VCC activation date?

Each booking channel sets its own activation date rule. These are the general rules:


Day of departure


Day of departure - it depends on the cancellation policy:

  • Non-refundable reservations: on the day the reservation is made
  • Partially refundable reservations: on the day the reservations become 90% non-refundable
  • All other reservations: on the check-in date

If you have any further questions about the activation date, please reach out to your booking channels directly.
