Refunds are not issued automatically via Guesty upon cancellation, but you can issue a refund manually. The funds will be returned to the original payment method, whether the credit card is valid or expired. Follow the instructions below.

General Guidelines:

  • Refunds for Airbnb reservations are handled in their Resolution Center.
  • When refunding more than one payment for a single guest, each payment must be refunded individually, up to the amount of the payment itself. For example, if a guest made two payments of 50 USD for a total of 100 USD, you cannot issue one refund in that amount. You will need to issue two refunds.
  • Payments processed through Guesty should be refunded in Guesty.
