the problem is that it does not seem to me that on booking you can choose who to host ... that's why I think that introducing guest reviews is a useful thing for the whole host community, so that you know who we are hosting at home, and so that guests are concerned about proper conduct!
in fact it is annoying that one has to drive around the house and check for any damage in front of the customer, damages that are often not even immediately visible at first glance, so I think that the deposit withdrawn in this way is perfectly useless. let's say we think differently !!
it is true, but as you well know this is an annoying thing to ask the customer, and above all it also conditions the check-out because often we do not check out and above all it would seem really rude if in front of the customer one gets to do the hound in home to the discovery of minor damage to his presence that may be in a hurry to leave. I think that booking. should also take care of collecting the security deposit and keep it for at least a week on our behalf.
I believe that booking should stop being always on the guests' side and start listening to our problems, even if small damages exist and are frequent. booking should in my opinion create as arb bnb the possibility to review the guests and give an opinion on their stay, this invites people to have a decidedly more civil behavior and certainly to have less damage to the structures. the guest feels more controlled and like everybody works to make a good impression and have a dignified behavior!
