How can I hold dates for a guest?
Sometimes hosts want to make dates on their calendar available so that only a certain guest can book. There are a few ways you can hold dates for a guest:
If a guest requests to book
Dates are automatically held once you accept a guest’s request to book until you accept or decline, the request expires, or the guest withdraws their request. If you accept, the guest’s dates will continue to be held while we’re awaiting payment or awaiting verification.
If a guest sends an inquiry
You can pre-approve an inquiry that a guest has sent you, and the guest has 24 hours to accept or decline your pre-approval. The only way to unblock dates once a reservation is confirmed is to cancel it, which may result in penalties.
