Guests can self-service cancel reservations that are eligible for a 100% refund. For reservations that are not eligible for a full refund, you may need to cancel the reservation for them.  

When a guest submits a cancellation request, the booking status will show as Cancellation Requested in your Inbox. When a guest contacts you to cancel their booking, direct them to their account to submit the request.

Keep in mind that partner-initiated cancellations that don’t qualify for a cancellation waiver can affect your ranking metrics and will incur a partner fee.

If cancellations are due to property sold or ownership change, see About transferring a listing to a new owner to prevent negative guest impacts.
