I have found that almost all of the requests I am getting from VRBO are people who don’t read the listing and try to book with children. The listing clearly states its an adult only property, yet they keep on requesting to book. Then they all act confused about the pricing, but I don’t really understand why its not being made clear to them when they put through a request.
I received an inquiry this morning for a week in September. Its a good inquiry, and we will get paid $1400. She said it was for “2 people”. I sent her a reply saying:
“Thank you for reaching out about our guest house. We have the entire month of September available up until the 23rd. If you are interested in booking, please let me know who will be staying and why you are visiting. We do live on the property and just want to make sure the guest house is suited for your needs. We don’t allow children at this time. Thanks a lot and please let me know if you have any questions.”
To which she replied to me with “thanks for getting back to me, please let me know the cost and the details”. She ignored all my questions. So I am going to hit the deny button. I am not sure if I should reply again, or simply deny. I already have a bad taste in my mouth.
What would you do?
