How much time do I have to respond to a reservation request?

You have 24 hours to respond to a reservation request before it expires, by clicking the Accept or Decline button. Guests appreciate a prompt response, even if you cannot host them.

Feel free to review trip details with a guest by exchanging messages before you respond to their reservation request. However, clicking the Discuss button to continue exchanging messages is not a sufficient response to the request. If you do not accept or decline a request within the allotted time, it will expire and your placement in search results may be negatively impacted. Expired requests cannot be reactivated. 

To read a request, click on it in the Pending Requests and Inquiries section of your dashboard. Keep in mind that the dates included in a pending reservation request will be blocked on your calendar, so other guests won't be able to request them.

To respond to reservation requests quickly, get instant alerts on your mobile phone by text message or with one of our mobile apps.
