There may be occasions that require you to temporarily close your property. In this article, we will outline how you can manage this.
This article includes:
Reasons for temporary closing
- Major renovation
- Following government regulation (such as Covid-19 preventing measures)
- Natural disasters
Whether the occasion is planned or unplanned, Agoda strongly encourages you to honor every booking that has been made from Agoda customers at your property. This means that every booking that is made, even during the closing period, would need to be accommodated.
Any bookings that can’t be accommodated should be offered alternative accommodation. You can find more detailed steps in this article: What should I do if I can’t accommodate a guest?
Please note that if you can’t provide any alternatives, you must compensate Agoda to cover the costs of relocation for guests.
