Cancellation modification by country

This is the first time I have seen this so I thought I would share.
Has anyone seen this for other countries?

I have seen this first time yesterday also.
I also have one question about cancellation, what if I don’t accept a booking request, let it run out of 24 hours. Does it still count as a deny?

AFAIK it’s only for Korea. Those pesky regulators…

I think that’s a completely issue @Ping

The original comment relates to making a booking in Korea.

If you have a booking request you need to confirm or delete within 24 hours or this will affect your rates.

@Ping – start a new discussion, do not insert a question in the middle of another discussion.

I guess the lesson here is to not book South Korean guests more than 30 days out, or unless you’re willing to risk losing 50% of the booking fee if they cancel after 30 days.

The good thing is that you can refuse the reservation without penalty “Cannot accept due to South Korean mandated cancellation policy.”

Not IN KOREA… From Korea. Their government imposes this on US, no matter where we are, for their citizens.

I have flexible cancellation policy anyway so it doesn’t affect me This is going to guarantee that South Korean guests have a hard time booking many Airbnbs, especially the vacation rental type places that are hard to rebook last minute.

I’ve had this come up a few times, having hosted a small number of guests from South Korea. Haven’t had a problem yet! It’s like anything else, you know that it’s going to be fine most of the time. I might decline if it was for a particularly popular set of dates and I didn’t want to take the risk, but so far that hasn’t been an issue.

Pity they can’t focus on fixing real problems in the region
