Well, sooner you answer, higher are the chances that the traveller wants to stay with you.
To answer a booking request, you have to go on your Yestudent profile, in the "Host" tab.
You'll go then to your Reservations Requests and you'll have the choice to accept, refuse the booking request or contact the traveler.
After a 48h delay without any answer from you, the booking request will be automatically refused.
After two booking requests automatically refused, your ad will be unpublished.
Answer a booking request means :
- Send a message to the traveler via the Chat
The aim of this feature is to help the hosts not being disturbed by some booking requests they can't answer, like exam period.
You'll be able to publish again your ad whenever you want and when you're available again to host travelers.
