Trying to amend booking


I have submitted a request for accomodation and the owner has approved it. I have since asked if I could stay another day but the owner and myself can find no way of amending the travel dates or cancelling the request so I can submit another. At the moment, because the first request has been approved, the system tells me the dates are unavailable if I try to submit another request.

Do I just have to wait for the offer to expire and then re-submit a request? Obviously, I don't want the property to get snapped up by someone else!

Thanks for your help.

Well, since TripAdvisor doesn't do bookings directly (and this is the site where you have posted your question) you would have to tell us which site you are actually using to do the bookings.

Normally, with most sites, the owner must approve any bookings, so as long as they are working with you, I would say that it is highly unlikely that you will get pushed out.

Hi there,

Sorry, I should have made that more clear. I assumed this forum was to do with the 'Holiday Rentals' arm of Tripadvisor. I see now it is more generic.

I am booking through the 'Holiday Rentals' area on Tripadvisor, using the 'Pay on Tripadvisor' option. Whilst I understand you cannot book through Tripadvisor per se, this is the site that is being used to advertise, enquire and process payment. It seems a little rigid.

I'm sure the owner will work with me on this, i just wondered if anyone had any advice or had experienced a similar thing in order for us to expedite the matter - she is struggling with it also. If not, I will just have to be patient!!

Thanks again, Lisa.
