Last night from 6PM-9PM I had about 6 people requesting to book that night or 2 nights starting last night (the entire weekend). Mind you I was driving back from work, having dinner and going out to a concert.
When I came back and glanced at the email I couldn’t believe it. I declined all of them then I changed the titles of my listings and put 24 hrs notice req!
At 11:30 PM I get another desperate request from someone whose plans fell through asking me if he could come right over.
How do we prevent this? Do these people expect us to be 24/7 at their disposal? Dont they have any respect for the hosts? How do you deal with this? One of my listings is brand new. I had it for a month now and no booking because I only get these types of requests. I begin to wonder if it is because it’s cheap and it attracts the wrong people. Have you been through anything like this?
