@Chara, I am sorry for the late response. Your place is lovely. Keep calling them and hopefully they will have somebody with an interest to spend the time with you to help you.
You can also list your place with airbnb, Expedia and Home-away. They are all good sources if BDC doesn't get back to you.
@Delarosqa3, your property might need to be approve first. When this is done, booking.com will send you an email to let you know that your property has been approved. You can also call their customer service phone number if you have any issues or questions..
@info, what I did was not to merge the calendar with booking and other sites that I use to rent my property.
I changed the minimum days to 5 and max to 15. When a guest book with the other site, I'll go to booking and block the days that are not available. This way, I found myself no loosing money because of the stupid setup booking has.
@Barbicangirl, it doesn't let let me use this option. It is frustrating, people just keep booking and no showing up. They don't have anything to loose.
Please keep me posted. They told me that nope, they will not give me permission to charge the guests for bookings or cancelations until I have good reviews with them.
How I can achieve that since the guests can book or cancel without any penalties? Let's see what will happen, maybe a guest will actually show up one day. (-:
Yep, that is exactly what I am saying. I cannot use the pre-authorization references yet because I am new. So they said.
