If you don't respond to the booking request within a decent time or before the rental date Boatsetter will expire the booking.
Therefore, we advise you to respond right away to facilitate a smooth and quick process. If the booking request is indeed expired by Boatsetter, your listing will appear lower in search results. Numerous expirations will lead to a temporary suspension. Plus, the faster you respond, the better your overall response rate will be on your profile!
Be sure to "Decline" any bookings that aren't going to happen or where the renter is unresponsive.
