Cash and cheque payments are available in person at the City of Victor Harbor Civic Centre, 1 Bay Road Victor Harbor.

The Bookable application takes your privacy and security seriously. It does not store any credit card details within the system, instead, we have implemented a robust and secure payment gateway, managed by trusted banking partners. When you make a payment through the application, your credit card information is securely transmitted directly to the payment gateway.

This means that your sensitive financial data remains exclusively in the hands of the bank and is never stored or accessible within our application's database. By utilising a reputable payment gateway, we aim to provide you with a safe and seamless transaction experience, while maintaining the highest standards of data protection. Your trust and confidence in our application's security are of utmost importance to us, and we are committed to safeguarding your personal information throughout every step of the payment process.
