I’ve made an enquiry but haven’t had response. What do I do?
This article is for: Renters
If you’ve made a booking request but haven’t had a response from the property owner/manager here’s what to do:
Check the current status of your booking
First, log into your My Bookabach account and go to my bookabach > Bookings to check your booking request. There’s a chance that it has been declined but the owner/manager omitted to send you an email. By default you should receive an email from them, but they can override this and choose not to send the email.
If your booking is still showing as REQUESTED
Check the email we sent you when you first made the enquiry (booking request acknowledgement). In this email (in most cases) you’ll find the owner/manager contact information and an indication of how quickly they typically respond. Remember that holiday homes are not like hotels and motels, and in many cases owners are not doing this “for a living”. So, while some commit to responding quickly, otherwise are up front in saying it may take them a few days to respond. So, please respect this.
Use the owner/manager contact details to contact them by phone. You’ll find a link to their contact details next to the entry in My Bookabach > Bookings.
If you haven’t heard back in the specified time frame and the owner’s/manager’s contact details aren’t recorded, then please put in a support request and we’ll follow up for you. If the response time isn’t specified, we’ll contact an owner/manager on your behalf if you haven’t heard back after 48 hours (excluding weekends).
