Welcome! How can we help?
There are a few ways to book spaces on MyTravelPie.com.
Choosing the Right Stay Option for You:
Some hosts have listed their entire home as bookable where as others only allow you to book individual rooms.
Depending on how many people are travelling you can choose between the "Entire Place" or the "Private Rooms" option. Entire Place consists of the entire property as described by the host in the listing whereas Private Rooms are rooms within that property. You can go through the details of each room and the entire property before deciding on which one to choose.
Some of our hosts want to get to know a guest before they confirm a reservation while others prefer to reduce the time it takes to manage requests by using MyTravelPie.com's Instant Book feature.
Options to book a stay on MyTravelPie.com
• The "Request to Book" button sends a reservation request to a host for the specific trip dates and room type you select. The host has the option to either accept or decline the request, or ask you questions about your trip. When a host responds to your request, we send you an email to let you know. If they don't respond within 24 hours, your request simply expires.
• The "Instant Book" button immediately confirms your reservation and closes the host's calendar to other incoming requests. We send you a receipt by email with your trip's details, and your host may follow up with you, too.
• The "Contact Host" button lets you start a conversation about their space and hosting style through our secure messaging system. You can use our messaging system to discuss trip details, request special prices, or ask about specific amenities.
Payment and confirmation
If you use the Instant Book button, we'll ask for your payment details so we can hold your reservation. You booking will be confirmed and you will be charged immediately. However, we will transfer the complete payment to the host only upon checkin.
If you use the Request to Book button to send a request, the host has 24 hours to respond. We won't charge your payment method until the host accepts your reservation. Once the host accepts, we process your payment and send you a congratulatory email that includes your receipt, trip details, and best wishes for a great trip. If you don't hear back within 24 hours, your request automatically expires.
