These kind of guest must have some kind of sanction from booking.com. They are not just dangerous in this situation, it is often not one-time problem, they are usually problematic no matter where they're traveling. As we work with booking.com on mutual pleasure and interest, they may consider to protect the host in some way.
I had some experience with bad behaviour by guests side, sometimes even with police intervention. It has been very stresful. I also had the experience with guests who have been warned because of not respecting house rules, and then they told me "I will put you bad review because I'm not allowed to have party in your property..." .Well, it is difficult to work with people because every one of them are carrying their own frustrations with themselves and sometimes it is the host who "suffers". I'd like to propose to booking.com to consider making changes as airbnb (for example) did- as person who books accomodation, you have your own profile and you receive reviews, and also you can have recommendations from host. Therefore, host can choose option to receive bookings only from people who have recommendations. This way, bad experiences can be reduced.
It would be very nice to have this option on booking.com. That way, relation between guest and host would be 2way street. There are many people who can have bad intentions, and their review may not be objectivly written. So, it affects our bussines.
I had the same problem, firstly I clicked on "finance" and on page "payments by booking.com" there is option to remove that kind of payment. After that you are asked to write why do you want to change way of payment, and when you fill this it will be written that you need to contact costumer service. Today I contacted them, they told me that I need to send them message in my extranet, to ask them for removal and once more, to explain why I want it. It has been said to me that that's all I need to do and that they will remove this kind of payment.
Hello, did you solve this problem?
I had the problem with synced calendar as I paste the link to my airbnb page and checked calendar once again- there were completley wrong dates closed then. I have redone it later, but it was the same- for example, some date which is booked on booking.com was open on airbnb, and there were completley different dates closed on airbnb calendar.
Did anyone had these issues?
Also, is it secure to open instant booking on airbnb, at the same time with the booking.com instant bookings? How accurate can be this syncronisation?
