How do I book a pre-approval or special offer?
If you contact a host about their space before requesting to book it, the host has the option to invite you to book a couple of ways:
- Pre-approval: The host invites you to book for the dates and prices shown when you contacted the host
- Special offer: The host chooses a custom price (or other details) and invites you to book with the new details
Note: A special offer will be for the nightly rate only, and won't include the guest service fee or any additional taxes, fees, or costs.
