@KKC “Some people don’t feel that good about getting a double payment”
Exactly. I have had three cancellations - the first a very very tragic medical situation (refunded quickly so they didn’t have to deal with EC on top of everything else), the second was a dingbat that drove me bonkers while WE were on vacation (no refund) and the third is this family, who has a new baby and lots of expenses from the hospital that they didn’t expect. Not my problem, sure, but if I can help, I will. I remember being there.
I do not consider it undermining other hosts. I don’t have to refund, none of us do. If I don’t rebook, I certainly won’t. Each hosting situation and house is different. What works for me, doesn’t for others, and vise versa. I have to be happy with my own choices at the end of the day.
