Making changes to reservations
Because cancellations disrupt guests' plans and impact confidence in the Airbnb community, try to keep all your reservations. If for some reason you can’t, you can cancel reservations from your hosting dashboard. Just know that penalties are involved, including things like a cancellation fee or a blocked calendar. However, if a guest cancels, you won’t be penalized.
