They seem to hold all funds till guest arrives.
But how many payments does the guest make??

Hi @Ruth5,

 

As far as I know, the guest only makes one payment which is at the time of the booking.  If you have a security deposit, they place a hold on the card for that amount until 48 hours after the guest checks out.

So, my question is this:

My listing's securtiy deposit fee is around 1000 dollars. If the guest cancels his/her credit card right after his stay, and there are obvious damages in my place, how can I get the refund?

Or the guest's credit card limit is just not enough for the security deposit, how does airbnb blocks that amount of money?

Or worst case scenario would be, what if the guest deactivates his/ her airbnb account? 

 

Thanks in advance.
