It is a legitimate website....YES, the thing that i`m uncomfortable with - they confirm booking in the chosen currency, but you pay at the hotel in local one. This issue is not convenient for me....

( a small THANK YOU at the bottom of your post might be nice too)

YES, they only require to submit your card details to guarantee your reservation. The actual payment is collected by the hotel upon arrival. The bill statement will be in local currency.

Depends. Some hotels you can pay when you arrive. Sometimes they offer cheaper deals but its not cancellable and you have to pay up front.

For most bookings, you can cancel up to 24 hours beforehand and it won't cost you anything. We have used them dozens of times.

You pay the hotel when you arrive.

You will pay only what is stated on your voucher from Booking.com for the services also stated in your voucher.
