Govt Picture IDs -for EACH adult?

Many VR owners require a government picture ID for each adult in the booking party. (Again, I have not started yet.)

But hotels do not seem to do this. And I have units that hold up to 8

Question: Is it overkill to expect a picture from each Adult, just from the responsible/paying guest(s)?

What do you do?

Personally, I don't ask for ID on every booking, just if it seem scammish or otherwise high risk. Anybody else on the forums want to pile on with some advice?

I think it's overkill to ask for ID's from every guest. There's an argument to be made that it's reasonable to ask for the ID from the responsible/paying guest because of fraud/chargeback issues, but personally if I was booking and somebody tried to get an ID for all of the people I was bringing, I wouldn't go for it.

Only ID of the primary guest who is signing the rental agreement and paying.
