I've had some response by spamming through the bookings feedback option. Apparently my account executive would be calling (Still waiting 2 weeks later) Looks like its back to spamming!
Will do with the feedback! I think nuisance is the way to go!!
If a guest cancels more than 7 days prior to their arrival then we refund the deposit. Our deposit is the value of the first night of their stay. If a guest cancels within the 7 days prior to arrival then it is forfeited as the cancellation fee. If a stay is longer than one night, the guest pays the balance of any remaining nights at check in.
Charge a 1st nights deposit and set a non refundable period (In your case 14 days prior to arrival)
As long as it is in your property policy and the guest is advised on checkin, then yes you can.
Our solution has been to charge a deposit, payable at time of booking, and to set a non refundable period of 7 days prior to the stay. Invalid cards are immediately identified and can be dealt with, also no loss of revenue for you if a last minute cancellation is received.
