Hi Akbar,I hope that you are well.
The best way to avoid no shows is to not confirm the booking until you have received a sufficient deposit. Whether that is 50% or 100% of total booking value is entirely up to you.
You will also learn which guests are more likely to be no shows. This may not hold true in your town/city/country, but where we are there are pretty clear trends as to who will show up and who will not.
As to charging no shows, unless you have their credit card details and the ability to process them, you most likely won't get your money from the guest. You would be better served to simply black list the guest so that you know what to expect from them the next time they do make a booking with you.
