Airbnb XML and Instant Booking

Post by patstyles » Sat Apr 29, 2017 2:39 am

Hello.

May I suggest a feature for the Airbnb XML interface?

Please consider supporting this interface without forcing us to use Instant Booking.

I have an issue in which more than 50% of my current Airbnb inquiries are from hacked guest accounts. I need to be able to turn these down. It is easy for me to ID them, but Airbnb has more trouble and frequently does not flag the bad booking until just before arrival, if at all.

However, cancelling the booking myself is not an option. I am an Airbnb SuperHost and such cancellations would deprive me of this rating and might hurt my ranking in the guest searches for accommodations.

This would all be solved if I was able to confirm or pre-approve the booking inquires.

thanks,
.pat

Airbnb only allows XML use for instant booking. You will need to discuss this limitation with Airbnb.
