What Is The Difference Between Sending A Message vs. A Booking Request
On the HouseStay platform, you can either a message or a booking request. The difference between a message and a booking request is the following:
Message: A message does not contain your desired stay dates and does not have an expiration clock so does not expire. You cannot see the potential cost of your stay when sending a message.
Booking Request: A booking request contains your desired stay dates, and hosts have 24 hours to respond to a booking request before it expires. When you send a host a booking request you will be able to see the complete due at booking payment, payment breakdown, payment schedule, and the total potential cost of your stay.
