Never made booking but holding my money

    I made a reservation request for a room but the host didn't accept. I actually cancelled within 10 minutes of the request. But AirBnB is holding my money when I check my bank account online. How long are they going to hold my money for? Seems a little ridiculous that I didn't even book the room but I'm without the funds.

    The authorization / pending charge / hold on payment for your booking request may take up to 7 days to release depending on your bank. The problem is that they want to insure guests have the funds available if indeed the booking goes through. Why it takes so long to get this hold released in some instances is a bit absurd.

    They say up to 7 days but it should be 24 hours, maybe up to 3 days at worst.
