Changing a reservation for a place to stay

Whether it's changing the dates of your stay, the number of guests, or something else, you can alter a confirmed reservation by submitting a change request to your Host.

Submit a change request

  1. Go to Trips and then click the trip you want to change
  2. Click Show details under your reservation info
  3. Click Change or cancel
  4. Click Next under Change reservation
  5. Change the dates of your stay or the number of guests and click Continue
  6. Review changes, then click Send request

How it works

Depending on the Host’s policy, changing the number of guests may affect the total cost of your stay.

The original total and the new total will automatically show once the Host confirms your changes. You’ll be charged or refunded, if necessary, and this will be shown before you confirm the change.

If the Host declines your request, or doesn’t respond, your reservation will stay the same.

Other details

Here are a few other things to keep in mind when making a change request:

  • You can’t make changes if your checkout date is in the past 
  • Once changes have been made, any later changes must go through the process outlined above as a new request
  • If the Host altered their pricing for the new dates before you requested the change, your new reservation will reflect this pricing, unless you booked a special offer
  • Changing the reservation dates may affect whether or not you're still eligible for a weekly or monthly discounted rate

For reservations in India, you can't make any changes to a reservation that results in an increased price. If you want to make a change like this, you'll need to cancel the existing reservation, then make a new reservation that specifies the increased price.
