Guests who can't be contacted
Sometimes it is vital to be able to get hold of a guest to advise them of unforeseen circumstances that will impact on their stay - with the view to agreeing with the guest on the best option re a change of accommodation etc. If a guest is uncontactable this is problematic for hosts. There must be provision for Hosts to cancel bookings where guest are uncontactable after a reasonable period of time - say 24-hours. This is in consideration of the fact that all guests have easy access to either text and or email or both.
Not being able to contact a guest is a very rare circumstance but it can be enormously problematic for a host when this happens and some consideration should be given to host when this is the case.
