Why have I received an email saying if I don’t respond OR decline these dates will be blocked form my calendar?
I understand they might be blocked if I don’t respond but if I decline, because of other reasons (like I don’t like the look of the guests) why should I be penalised with the dates being automatically blocked?
Then you have to decline and tell them that AirBNB forces you to take action even though it isn’t clear that your place is the best one for them. Continue by telling them, you will be happy to accept once your discussions have been completed and you both decide to move forward.
Will do next time. I’ve never had anyone taking over 24 hours to reply to booking. I’m usually replying them within minutes and within an hour max it’s booked. I can live with the penalty. The listing ranked quite high so. Thanks though.
