When will my credit card be charged?

Which currency is payment collected in?
All credit cards are charged in USD, but all prices appear in the currency of the country where the glamping site is located.

You can withdraw your booking request and submit a new booking request with a different credit card. If your credit card has been declined, please make sure that the credit card information you have entered is correct.

There is a (6-12%) nonrefundable service fee for confirmed bookings. There is no fee for sending booking requests. You will not be charged if a booking is declined.
How do I send a booking request?
To send a booking request, find the glamping accommodation you would like to book and select your trip dates and check availability. Once you select the available unit you would like to book, select Request Booking, then you will enter your credit card information. You may also add an optional message to the host then, too.
When can I expect to hear from the host?
We request that our hosts respond to all booking requests within 24-48 hours. However, some of our hosts are located in remote locations with limited access to internet, and it may take a bit longer. If your request is urgent, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I submit multiple booking requests at the same time?
Yes, you can submit multiple booking requests at the same time, but remember that the booking requests are not inquiries and can be confirmed at any moment. Submitting multiple requests for the same dates may put you at risk for a double confirmation.
What does each booking status mean?
Pending: Your booking request has been submitted, but has not yet been confirmed or declined.
Confirmed: Your booking request has been accepted and your credit card has been charged. At the time of booking confirmation by the host, you will receive a booking confirmation email with the details of your stay.
Declined: Your booking request has been rejected by the host. Your credit card will not be charged.
Cancelled: After your booking request has been confirmed, you may need to cancel your reservation. Refunds will be released according to the cancellation policy of the host. Please view our Cancellation Policy for additional information.
Withdrawn: You may withdraw your booking request after it has been submitted. The host will no longer be able to respond to or confirm your booking, and your credit card will not be charged.
Expired: If the check-in date of a pending booking passed, the booking request will automatically expire in the Glamping Hub system.
How do I check the status of my booking request?
The status of your booking may be seen under the booking details in your user dashboard. You will also receive email notifications if the status of your booking changes.
How do I withdraw a booking request?
Log in to your Glamping Hub account and access the pending bookings tab. Click on the booking you wish to withdraw and find the red Withdraw My Request button under the booking details.
What is the difference between withdrawing and cancelling my booking?
You can withdraw your booking request if it is still pending. This means the host neither confirmed or declined your request, and your credit card was not charged. After a booking is confirmed and your credit card is charged, you have the option to cancel your booking. Upon cancellation, funds are released based on the cancellation policy of the host. Please view our Cancellation Policy for additional information.
Where can I find the exact address of the glamping site?
The exact address of a glamping site is withheld until a booking is confirmed. However, you can view a map of the location on the accommodation’s profile. Glamping Hub hosts will release the exact address of an accommodation to a guest upon booking confirmation.
Can I bring my pet glamping?
Many glamping sites allow pets. This information may be found under the features tab in the accommodation profile. If you are unsure or would like clarification, you may ask the host when you submit your booking request.

How do I contact the host?
You may contact the host when you make a booking request. Once you have made a booking request you can communicate with the host via the communication thread that is located in the bookings section while logged in. Once your booking request is confirmed, you will receive the host’s complete contact information, including phone number and email. The host will also receive your personal contact information in order to maintain contact prior to your check-in date.
How do I know if a host has responded to my request?
You will receive an email notifying you that the host has responded to your request. There is a link provided in the email that will take you to the communication thread where you can communicate with the host.
Why can’t I contact the host via email or phone?
The host has sent me a different price or alternative dates, why?
Sometimes our hosts have special offers or prices that are not included on their profile. Also, many of our hosts are in remote areas and need time to update their rates or availability.
The calendar on a host’s profile is always available, why?
We give our hosts full control of their profile and allow them to keep their calendar updated. While we encourage our hosts to keep their calendar updated, many of them are located in remote areas with limited access to the internet and cannot always keep their calendars up-to-date.
A host declined my booking with no explanation, what should I do next?
When our hosts decline a booking request with no explanation, this typically means that they do not have availability or it is an inconvenient time for a guest to stay at their accommodation. We encourage you to look at the surrounding areas on our site for other glamping getaways.
How can I submit a review?
After you stay in a Glamping Hub accommodation, you will receive an email informing you that you can now leave a review for the site. Follow the given instructions to submit your review.
Why are there no reviews on this Glamping Hub listing?
