When the Booking Method is set to Request to Book, the booking request comes to the host (notifications via web/ email and mobile), the owners get to choose to accept the booking or not.

Why Request to Book: This is particularly helpful when the prices are fluctuating, or guests ask for a price lower than listed or if host wants to choose whom to rent in a busy season. It helps in greater control with the host and revenue maximization)

Once the host gets the request, they can either ‘Accept the booking request or send Special Offer, where the invoice can be edited by the host as per guest request/ discussion.

In case of Events like booking for corporate events, conference, marriages, birthday parties etc, this feature comes handy for both the guest and the host for negotiation and coming to even terms and/ or discuss about the venue and its facilities.

Fabvenues provides complete transparency between the host and the guest for enquiry about property, arrangements etc for most convenience to both host and the guest.

Note: The chat function limits the exchange of contact nos., e-mail ID as Fabvenues as we insist on booking through Fabvenues for maximum security. Multiple trials of exchange of contact detail may lead to the chat option being blocked.

Payment from Guest
