I had a guy working in Saudi Arabia who wrote me an airbnb enquiry in this past week. So far so good. So. 3 weeks stay, 4 guests Nov/December. (Actually he submitted the request for 1 guest. I do max of 4 guests in the property but they are a family of 5.) Straight off the bat his communications were all "looking forward to your generous discount".... what's your ultimate offer... more special offer... what's your final offer... can you make it x price... (the guy was asking for my peak summer period mind you... he has no reviews, enquired for the wrong number of people)... Every second message he sent was asking for a discount, I counted he asked 7 times in total, out of 13 messages. 2 days or so later he writes again and said do you still have the desire to host us at x price (which was my price)... and I said sorry but I'm going to decline you as a guest due to your repeated requests for a discount which was offputting...... Anyway a day or two later and i've got a solid booking for that period from a completely separate party. There was no asking for discounts. Just a nice and straightforward booking request. Nice and easy. I just have this thought this person could be a major pain in the backside as a guest. I'm not going to give my rooms away to a cheapskate/bargainhunter in our summertime. Maybe it's cultural, but I don't want to deal with guests like that.
