I have put my flat on Airbnb for hosting and made two reservations that I know must cancel.
I fully understand the damage that might have been done to the guests, but there was no other way to resolve the issues I currently have.
For the cancellations of those bookings Airbnb has put a cancellation fee of 150 dollars to the account. In My Transactions I can see that there are two pending payouts of 132 euros (148 dollars). I know have removed my flat from the listings and plan on never hosting again to avoid any financial damage to myself and others.
My question is: Will Airbnb literally fine me and take the money out of the account or will I simply have a penalty for my next AIrbnb operations? I am from the European Union, Eastern Europe.
P.S. I am aware that there was a similar thread created, but the answers provided there still leave me doubting of what further actions will be taken by Airbnb.
Thank your for time : ).
