Check your reservation status as a guest
Your reservation status keeps you updated on all kinds of things, such as whether you're confirmed or need to do something like verify your ID or leave a review. To check it, either find the message thread with the Host in your inbox or go to Trips and click or tap Show more trip plans, then Show details.
A Confirmed status means you’re good to go! You’ll receive an email saying so, along with a text (SMS) and a push notification if you have those set up.
Instant Book vs Request to book: What to expect
For Instant Book listings, your reservation is automatically confirmed. If you used the Request to book button, Hosts have 24 hours to respond. If they decline or don’t respond, no worries: You won’t be charged and are free to book a different stay. Either way, be sure your account is up to date with valid payment information and your verified ID (Some Hosts require it.)
