Booking cancelled by the host: When you cancel a confirmed booking, you won't receive any payment. But more importantly: your confirmation rate will be negatively influenced. Think about it before you cancel. A low confirmation rate decreases your chance to receive future bookings. Contact our support team first in case you need to cancel the booking.
Booking cancelled by the direct Withlocals guest:
- More than 14 days before the experience date: you won't receive any payment.
- Less than 14 days before the experience date: you benefit from the booking guarantee! The booking guarantee depends on your chosen payment method.
- Bank Transfer payment or Paypal: you will receive full payment for the booking
- Cash payment: you will not receive payment for this booking
Cancellation from partner companies:
- If you as a host choose to cancel a booking, the full refund is issued to the partner company.
- If the partner company cancels the booking within 72 hours, the host receives full payment.
- If the partner company cancels the booking for more than 72 hours before the trip but within 6 days (144 hours), the host receives 50% payment.
- If the partner company cancels the booking 7 days and more before the trip, the host does not receive any payment and the partner company is fully refunded.
*This takes into account the starting time of the tour.
Booking Requests rejected/withdrawn/expired before confirmation: All bookings must be confirmed within 48 hours. If you reject or don’t confirm within this time range, the booking request expires and no payment will be made to you. This also counts when the guest withdraws the booking request before you confirm it. Make sure you click on that “Confirm” button!
