If you need to cancel a reservation, update a reservation, or understand how payments work, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll help you navigate any cancellations or alterations, and explain what happens when changes are made.
Changing or canceling plans
Plans change, and that’s OK. You’ll first need to make sure you’re logged in to your Airbnb account. Then head to Trips and select the reservation (for a stay or Experience) you need to modify. You’ll find links to change or cancel—follow the steps and you’ll be guided through the process. If you have an emergency or unavoidable circumstance, check our Extenuating Circumstances Policy for all the details.

Paying on Airbnb
You’re ready to book, but need to pay. The good news is we support different payment methods—it just depends on the country your payment account is located in. In addition to major credit and debit cards, certain payment options (like Google Pay or Apple Pay) are available in specific countries. You’ll be able to tell which payment methods are accepted on the checkout page before booking. In most cases, your payment method will be charged as soon as your reservation is confirmed.
If you do need to cancel, any refund will be based on the Host’s cancellation policy, so be sure to check the details before you book to make sure it works for you.
