Things happen, and a Host may need to cancel a reservation. But a guest shouldn’t cancel on behalf of their Host.

If your Host lets you know that they can't accommodate your stay anymore, don't cancel for them. Instead, send them a message asking them to cancel. That way, you'll be eligible to receive a full refund.
