Can I cancel a reservation?

Updated 1 week ago

When a guest makes a booking, their reservation is confirmed immediately. So it’s not possible to reject a reservation.

Depending on your policies, a guest may be able to cancel their reservation using a link in their confirmation email or via their Booking account. In some cases, you’re able to initiate a cancellation request if a guest asks you to do so, or if there are issues with guest payments. See below for more information.

Request by guest:

If the guest contacted you to request a cancellation you can follow these steps in your extranet or within the Pulse app to notify us.


If the guest hasn’t shown up, mark the reservation as a ‘no-show’ in the extranet or on the Pulse app.

Invalid credit card:

For information on what to do when the guest has an invalid credit card, please read this article.

No deposit/pre-payment received:

If you have not received these as expected, you can find out more about the actions you need to take in this article.
