Cancelling a bookingBack to top
To cancel a booking, the Customer must click the Cancel Booking link beneath their reservation status.
This link only appears if your Customer Account settings permit it to display. These settings can include date limitations as well as restrictions on booking status.
Once the link is clicked, the Customer receives a pop-up alert asking them to confirm the booking cancellation.
When the cancellation is complete, the booking status updates to reflect this.
A refund of any monies paid is not automatically triggered for the Customer. They still need to contact you to issue the refund through your backend.
