Renters have 72 hours to send a booking request payment before the booking request expires. This provides renters enough time to prepare the funds (which could involve having a parent send the money). You'll be updated by email about the status of your request. If more time is needed, you can message the host that you need more time and send another booking request after expiration.
After successfully sending the payment, your booking will automatically be confirmed and your payment processed. If the request expires, we don't process your payment.
