Pretty new at this rental vacation thing. We booked a villa in Florida a few day ago through tripadvisor and now the owner wants us to sign a rental agreement which is 28 pages long, full of typos on price and resemble more a long term lease than a vacation rental. He also wants a copy of our driver licences and was also asking for our kids passport. Of course, there is no way we are providing any passport information but I can understand why he would ask for driver licences.
Should we really have to sign that or is booking through this site a sufficient contractual act that binds both parties?
I'm feeling very nervous about this whole thing now
Thanks for your help.
