Instant-bookable and on-request modes are two ways for guest to make reservations on www.tujia.com .
For on-request mode, when a booking is created, the booking needs to be confirmed by merchant, and then guest will pay for the booking to complete the booking process.
For instant-bookable mode, when a booking is created, the booking doesn’t need to be confirmed by merchant, and guest will pay for the booking directly to complete the booking process.
To decrease the complaint rate and manage the risks, tujia.com will put the newly-launched properties in on-request mode by default.
If merchant can manage room rate and room availability timely and keep rejection rate low (in principle merchant is not allowed to reject instant-bookable bookings), merchant can contact and inform Tujia staff to change the mode from on-request to instant-bookable.
It is very important to keep the communication between merchant and guest timely and effective, which not only can help guest find a satisfying place to stay, but also can help merchant to get a real booking fast.
When a guest contacts you, please reply and answer guest’s questions in time and with enthusiasm.
If the guest is not satisfied with their first selected property eventually, we suggest that you recommend your other properties displayed on www.tujia.com or your friend’s displayed properties on www.tujia.com to the guest.
Before guest checks in, you may want to clean your property comprehensively to make sure the place is tidy and clean; check and fix housing facilities regularly to make sure they can be used normally during the guest’s stay.
On guest’s arrival day, you need to keep reachable to make sure guest can find you and check in successfully. In special circumstances, if your property is not ready or not suitable for guest to stay, please contact guest or Tujia staff in advance and try to work out a solution together.
