People are unfriendly for booking more than 28 days for the refund policy.
Usually we use Moderate policy but in the first attemp for booking 1 month we found this trouble.
No refund possible for more than 28 days, it's a general rule.
I thinked in accept a book for 27 days and block the next days. Guest will modify when he arrive the city and we unblock the days until the 30 days that he need.
¿ what do you think about this solution?
There are some disadvantages if you do so:
- Monthly discount will not apply on initial booking
- Airbnb Guest Service fee is significant lower percentage for stays of 28 days and more (so guest will pay too much on initially booking)
- changing a reservation from short term to long term will not calculate the new price properly (It is known bug)
If guest has to cancel a long term stay, you can allways refund manually, if desired.
Just let guest book what they need and follow Airbnb rules !
Ok thank. ¿IF I refund him what happen with the fees of airbnb ?
I think that I will discount it from the refund.
Possibly I will lost the 1 month book finally but I agree you...it's better that guest choose his options.
Thanks and regards.
