Introducing: booking requests Hi, When a traveller wants to book your rental, they can now submit a booking request. They enter their payment details and we pre-authorise the payment - it’s only processed when you click Accept. • You can accept, decline or reply to booking requests (you must do one of these within 24 hours) • You need to accept above 50% of booking requests. If you accept less than 50%, your listing may be suspended. A quick recap of how travellers can book your property:
Booking requests A traveller wants to book your property and enters their payment details.
You must accept within 24 hours to secure the booking.
Top tip: Accept as many booking requests as you can.
Enquiries A traveller sends you an email about your property.
Either send a quote to allow them to book or simply respond to their query.
Top tip: Guests are twice as likely to book if you respond within 6 hours. Check out our blog post for a more detailed step-by-step guide to bookings.
