Can a guest alter or cancel a long-term reservation?
The Long Term cancellation policy is automatically applied to all long-term reservations of 28 nights or more and requires a 30-day notice for both changes and cancellations.
Changes to long-term reservations
If a guest wants to change their reservation, they must submit a change request to the host.
If the guest gives more than 30-days notice, the changes will happen automatically and the guest will be charged or refunded accordingly. If the guest gives less than 30-days notice, or wants to extend their stay, the host will need to accept or decline the changes.
Airbnb service fees are also adjusted if any changes are made to the reservation price.
Canceling long-term reservations
If a guest cancels a long-term reservation before the check-in date, the first scheduled payment is paid to the host in full, and the guest is refunded the remaining amount. If the guest booked a reservation in Italy on or after October 18, 2016, they can cancel up to 30 days before the check-in date (at 12pm local time) and get a full refund, including all fees.
If the guest cancels during their stay, they'll only receive a refund for the nights of the reservation that start 30 days after the cancellation is made.
