How do I send an inquiry or booking request?
To send a booking inquiry:
From the listing page, scroll down to the very bottom and tap "Contact Host" to send a booking inquiry. You'll enter your travel dates, the number of guests, and a brief message to the host who will then get back to you with a confirmation of their availability to host, either via message in response to your inquiry, or through a Pre-approval, which will then allow you to book, pay and confirm their space then and there.
To send a booking request:
From the listing page, tap the "Check Availability" button at the bottom of your screen. From here, select your travel dates, and tap "Request reservation". On the reservation request screen you'll be able to input the number of guests and a brief message, as well as see the booking total & price breakdown. Hit "Send reservation request" when you're ready to confirm and pay. Your card will be processed upon the host's acceptance of your request.
