AirBnB was initially very supportive and processed my full refund BUT denied me the privilege of sharing my full story because I had initially mentioned the company who was managing the key collection. They did not ask that I remove the name of the company, but they removed my entire review as below! Your rights to share your experience on AirBnB is very limited. Know your rights and be careful.
What to do if Airbnb cancels your accommodation at the last minute? Posted on by thetechieguy You are a planner. In March you booked and paid for your flight.
You check the availability and the price and instantly book it before it is snapped up by someone else.
Now, all that you need to do is count down the months until year-end-break…. But there is a problem. Two weeks before your magical holiday is about to begin you are notified that the Airbnb host has decided that he would rather use the accommodation himself and promptly cancels the booking.
You now have to scramble to find alternative accommodation for a family of six which is scarce and at the last minute any accommodation you do find cost a fortune.
This has just happened to a family from Johannesburg, South Africa who received an SMS saying the accommodation in Plettenberg Bay has been canceled leaving them and their family who will fly to South Africa from overseas stranded.
There was no apology from the host nor was there any offer to help find alternative accommodations. Dena also tried to call Airbnb but could not find a telephone number on the site. Thankfully she found another accommodation to accommodate their family of 6 over the busiest time of year.
This is not an isolated incident as others report a similar incident such as this tweet: Kobus did confirm that he did find another accommodation that same day and the process was disappointing but painless. I found a new accommodation on the app pretty easily they refunded me the difference between the rates the new one is slightly cheaper on the same day.
What about the money? When it comes to the money, Airbnb protects is users by holding the money and it does not pay it out to the host until 24 hours after the guest has checked in. Therefore, if the host cancels or the listing is not what a guest expects, the money can always be refunded directly from Airbnb and no fights need to be had with the host.
If a guest does find that their host has canceled their reservation, they have two options: Transfer their payment to a new reservation and if the new reservation is less than they originally paid, Airbnb will refund the difference.
Receive a full refund of their payment. The contact details can be found on their booking itinerary and our customer service team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a variety of languages.
