Booking approvals by owner before confirmation


Is there a way host/owners is able to approve booking themselves to better manage and have control over who is booking? I find it difficult when this is managed by booking.com because I've had few guest misconduct and even when reporting and blocking them,  booking.com still allows them to book again and I sort that being violation of my rights as a host. 

Please provide clarity because with other platforms I am able to accept or decline bookings that I'm comfortable with.

Hi Tebogo, 

Thanks for reaching out. As a platform, Booking.com is instant confirmation and we are not able to allow partners to accept or decline bookings before they are confirmed. Here is an article on the the pros and cons - https://partner.booking.com/en-us/click-magazine/instant-bookings-holid…

In regards to the misconduct, if you marked this correctly the guest should not able to book you again with that same profile. Here is a refresher on marking misconduct - https://partner.booking.com/en-us/help/first-steps/first-reservations/h…
