They are refundable, subject to any applicable deductions for damages, missing items, and/or unpaid sanctions. The security deposit will be returned to the same credit card used to place the deposit within 60 days of your official checkout date. If your issuing bank has changed, we ask that you let us know your new wire bank details so that we can refund the deposit to your current credit card.
