Hi - thanks, Leandri. I'd actually not thought to ask the guest to initiate a cancellation. They've got a pretty good deal, I wouldn't want to back out if I'd gotten it ;-) . If it ever becomes critical, that is a good thing to think of.
Paying for my mistakes is one thing, but I've always wondered what parameters the booking site uses to pick who gets mentioned at the beginning of the list, and who gets buried. Do you have any insights on that ? It doesn't seem to depend on how long you've been listed on the site, or how many guests you've hosted, or ratings - sometimes even the location does not seem too relevant, I've searched our town and had gîtes all over the Loire Valley come up before ours. So I'll admit I was a wee tad concerned that if I cancel on a guest, my listing would never surface on a search again.
Best regards, Naomi
