DEPOSIT NOT RELEASED ?
HOW THE PLBS WORKS
On the day of departure, we take a provisional bank imprint called a pre-authorized bank deposit (PLBS)
This amount is not debited from your account but is provisioned, i.e. your bank blocks it.
Even if we release the PLBS upon return, some of the bearer's banks may take time to release the funds.
In addition, regardless of any action on our part, PLBS expire after 28 days from initiation.
You should therefore ensure that you have the necessary funds and anticipate this blocking for a maximum of 28 days.
Please note that with some new banks, the provision appears on the bank statement, but it is a provision and not a debit.
