Thanks! I hope your problem is better now :)
I just read an interesting comment on another thread about this. It seems that "under the radar" immigrants make bookings on the site with fake or stolen credit cards, so that they can get a booking confirmation to get them into the country.
Booking.com is absolutely shocking at taking any responsibility for hijacking our calendar!
Thank you so much for this information! I was wondering what on earth is going on - why would people make fake bookings?! This is deifnitely the best answer.
What country are you based in, if I may ask?
I'm very tempted to cancel our booking.com listing for this very reason - their instant confirmation policy means our calendar is getting blocked with fake bookings! So unsavoury and leaves a bitter taste in one's mouth...
