    rental deposit payment

    Not wanting to run out of cash soon after arrival, I was wondering whether you can put the apartment rental deposit on credit card?

    Anyone done this?

    Of course this is possible. I did it like this in Harbour Plaza North Point.... No problem at all.

    Harbour Plaza is a hotel, most landlords do not take credit cards.

    you'd have to take a cash advance on your card to pay cash to the L/l....but keep in mind that with cash advances, you pay interest immediately

    fancy developments might have mangement that could take it, but even that is doubtfull because you're signing with an individual owner, not the mgt co.

    Thanks for all the input guys. I guess I will have to leave that money in cash (and put something else on credit). I thought we had budgeted well, but some of the money coming in won't be until a few weeks after we need the deposit money. BTW what is Harbour Plaza North Point like, very interested as we may be staying there?
