Requesting a refund
Do you need a refund? Your first step is to message your Host to make it right. If they can’t fix it, they can offer you a partial refund through the Resolution Center. Here’s how refunds work when things don’t go just as planned.

Need to request a refund before or after a trip or Experience? First, discuss the amount with your Host in the message thread, and if they agree, go to the Resolution Center to request money. If they don’t agree to the amount within 72 hours, reach out to us for help mediating.

Good news—if you’re eligible for a refund, you’ll get it automatically within 10 days. Maybe even sooner. We'll automatically send your refund as soon as you cancel, but your bank or credit card issuer may take longer to get it to you—it all depends on how you paid and where you live.
