Pre-authorization Credit Card Auto-Cancel (Release) Upon Departure
Currently preauthorization holds expire after 7 days in Mews but no cancellation of hold is sent to credit card or bank. The credit card or bank determines when the authorization hold is released depending upon their own policies. If the property sends a cancel for preauthorization the system does send the release to the bank. Is there a way that when a guest checks out, Mews can send a cancel to release the preauthorization hold.
Hi team, if pre-auth is a part of the rate group configuration, we will automatically cancel authorization on Mews' and the bank's side 24h after the guest departs.
However, due to other priorities, we did not work on the automatic cancellation of all pre-auths in all flows after departure, adding this initiative back on the backlog.
