This action automatically releases your payment, from Stripe to your Host, and cannot be reversed by LiveLocal.

What if I want my money to go straight to my host?

If you don't want your payment to be held securely by Stripe until check-in day, you can opt to have your payment go straight to your host. All you need to do is click "completed" on your booking in the LiveLocal website.

⚠️ A word of caution though - once your payment is released to your host, this is not reversable. LiveLocal permanently loses the ability to facilitate a refund of your payment in accordance with our cancellation policy.

But if you trust your host, and you want them to get paid up front, this is entirely your choice and our website offers the functionality for you to select this option.
