1 The Castle Inn Ian Trott Hi Is anyone else having bookings made before lockdown has been lifted and without contact first by Booking.com? 9 Sharonpowney Lockdown is different in every country in the world, also lots of places can take bookings for essential works. Don't expect booking.com to know every single rule in every country. If you can't accept bookings where you are then you need to mark dates as Closed. Use Rates, Calendar and do a bulk update.
