TableCheck allows the use of debit and prepaid cards, however such uses are not encouraged or recommended.
Prepaid and debit cards are being used in conjunction with an issued bank account which requires the amount to be pre-charged in order to be used. Therefore, when a booking requires a pre-authorization (credit hold) to book, in cases of the debit and prepaid cards, the amount will be instantaneously deducted on the spot.
If a debit / prepaid card was used for a pre-authorization transaction, the authorized amount will be refunded after your visit to the restaurant.
Please note that in certain situations, a transaction reversal (cancellation of original transaction) may occur in lieu of a refund.
The actual time for this refund to come through varies from bank to bank. We encourage you to contact your bank directly for updates on refund status.
