Read here why registration is required to book or send messages in HolidayPorch


The user who submits properties (property owners) will receive an email notification when a new booking request is received from another user.

You have received a new booking request on! Go to your account in “Bookings” page to see the request, issue the invoice or reject it!

User who submits property (owner) will see all bookings made for his property in User Dashboard -> My Bookings.

From here the owner can:

  • Reject Booking,
  • Issue Invoice and approve booking, or
  • Cancel a confirmed booking.
Rejected Bookings will be deleted automatically from the user dashboard.

User will be notified via email that his booking request was rejected or canceled. But the booking request will no longer be available in his dashboard either.

Below there are screenshots with all possible status for booking requests received in User dashboard -> My Bookings (property owner)

The owner can cancel the confirmed bookings as well.

Approve or reject a booking request. Deposit fee must be paid before booking is confirmed.

If a deposit fee will be asked by HolidayPorch, then the user submitting the property will have the possibility to:

  • issue an invoice,
  • add invoice details,
  • delete invoice and generate a new invoice,

All these BEFORE payment is made by the user who submitted the booking request to HolidayPorch and have his booking request confirmed.

When issuing invoice the deposit is visible in invoice details:

In this case, the invoice can be deleted and generated again (BEFORE DEPOSIT IS PAID)

All the invoices generated by a user who owns the property (who submits the property) will be visible in User Dashboard -> Invoices


Multiple Booking Requests for the same period

If 2 or more booking requests are sent for the same date/property – 2+ invoices were issued,  we will allow only the first payment to be processed.
