Long-Term Trip Cut Short by Coronavirus

These are unfortunate times for all of us. Upon hearing the news that nobody could leave their houses, I read this message and realized it applied to me during my stay in downtown San Francisco. The government issued orders that meant I should stay indoors and would be better off at home than raising concerns for other Airbnb residents or hosts by staying in an Airbnb room.

In this case, I took the most reasonable decision to return home only 10 days or so into 30-day reservation. I am seeking a refund for a portion if not all of my stay due to this inconvenience and to maintain goodwill in Airbnb going forward.

I’m disappointed that upon reading a detailed policy and not seeing the refund, I am not sure if I was approved for a refund. I am asking Airbnb to reconsider my case. It’s my first time using the extended stay option and I’m now very hesitant to use in the future if a fair refund isn’t possible.

  1. You want you want “a refund for a portion IF NOT ALL of your stay” due to your inconvenience? Are you kidding? You stayed 10 days and think you deserve ALL of your money back? It would be different if you cancelled and didn’t show up at all, but you actually stayed at someone’s listing for 10 days in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
