Advice needed for all-male groups
I am new to BDC and already I am experiencing problems with all-male groups booking and causing havoc in my holiday let building (four flats and a basement that I live in), disturbing other guests and myself, breaking stuff and leaving the place in a mess putting a strain on cleaning resources.
I have rarely experienced this before and have been running 15 years.
With BDC I cannot charge a deposit (unless I take on day - difficult), nor can I write my own description or mention any of my house rules that are vital for the happiness of everyone else who stays in the building. I am also getting bad reviews from other guests who have been disturbed by said male groups.
With other sites I can vet and email any interested male parties prior, and only once or twice in 15 years have I ever been let down. With BDC I have had two such groups in last month and another just checked in, drunk, young and asking where the nearest clubs are!
I absolutely hate to tar all males with the same brush but it is without exception that every bad experience has been a male group.
I am very close to taking my listings down: I've never had so much commission taken, never waited for so long to be paid, and never had such a lot of awful guests. I am at the end of my tether :( I would like to hear from anyone who is experiencing the same and how they are dealing with it.
With thanks, Jo
