All bookings that come in from our partner sites are automatically confirmed. These instant book reservations don't require approval from the host before they can be booked. Guests can simply choose their travel dates, book and discuss check in plans with the host.
The only way an instant booking can be declined is if the guest refuses to complete the host's reservation requirements before check in, or if the reservation has not been paid in full.
We strongly recommend that hosts with Airbnb as an existing source, turn off their instant book feature within Airbnb. This will help avoid any over bookings that could occur
