If the booking was from Booking.com then you can use the Blue button in the ‘Detail Tab’ to Report an Invalid card to Booking.com and they will request a new card from the guest.
If it was a virtual card Stripe might have rejected it because it was not yet valid. In this case you can send it again on check-in day also via the “Details” tab of the booking.
For other channels you will need to contact them and report the card as invalid.
If the booking is in the future, then the invalid credit card details will be stored in Beds24.
