    How do I cancel a reservation request?

    As long as your pending reservation request hasn’t been accepted by the host, you can cancel the reservation. You won’t be charged for the reservation or Airbnb service fees.

    But, if you cancel after the reservation has been accepted, your reservation will be subject to the terms of the cancellation policy selected by the host. Find out how to check the status of a reservation request.

    Note: Some reservations may generate additional charges or temporary authorizations. Find out more about when you’re charged for a reservation.

    One way you can cancel a pending reservation by finding the message thread with your host in your Inbox and clicking or tapping Withdraw Request. Or you can follow the directions below.

      To cancel a reservation for a place to stay:

      1. Go to Trips and select the trip you want to cancel
      2. Click Show more trip plans, then click Show details
      3. Click Change or cancel
      4. Click Cancel reservation

      You'll be taken to a new page where you can choose to either change or cancel your reservation request.
