I have a dilemma I’d really appreciate help with.
I’m planning a surprise birthday trip for my partner. I mistakenly left open one of the days I absolutely cannot have guests. Wouldn’t you know it, it got booked before I realized my mistake.
I could cancel and I believe AirBnB waives the normal $50 fee in a 6-mo period. However, I’d loose my Superhost status for a year. I really don’t want to loose that.
I’ve thought about offering the guest $50 if she cancels. That would cover her non-refundable ABB fee of $18 and still leave a little bit ($32) for the trouble.
Is making an offer like that against AirBnB’s rules? Or, is there something else I can do and not risk my Superhost status?
