DestRep enables hosts to make their own rules for guests. For example, some hosts may allow pets, others may not. These rules are totally up to the host, and guests are required to know and abide by hosts’ rules during their stay, rental or tour. Fail to follow these rules, and the host may kick you out early and you’ll likely lose the money you paid for the stay, rental or tour.
Bookings, payments, and fees
Hosts have complete control over who they allow to book their services. Hosts are required to confirm or deny a booking request from a guest within 24 hours. Furthermore, hosts are responsible for setting their per-night rates, cleaning fees, and security deposits (if they choose to require either of the later).
Once a booking is confirmed, the guest pays whatever the total fee is, which may include taxes and cleaning fees.
Hosts have the ability to set their own cancellation policies, so make sure to know what that is if you think you may have to cancel a booking after it’s been confirmed. If, as a guest, you cancel a booking before it’s been confirmed, you’ll be charged nothing – though a hold may be put on your credit card by the payment processor in the meantime.
If a guest does decide to cancel, Airbnb will refund the agreed upon amount to your credit card.
