Confirm booking request

Hi there, since the beginning we've set up our listing at Booking.com platform

we're getting instant bookings without a need to confirm it first. We understand it can be great feature for our guests, but sometimes it's a bit restricting and very surprising (with very last minutes booking) someone can book in without our need to confirm it.

I hasn't been able to figure out where to change the booking style from the instant to the one which would need a confirmation to become a valid booking.


Any idea how to achieve this?

Many thanks,




Hi, BDC is not like AirBnB. Once the booking is made it is confirmed and you are not able to cancel it (withouth the penalties).
