Why should I pay and communicate through NextHunt directly?

Paying and communicating through NextHunt helps ensure that you're protected under our Terms of Service, cancellation and refund policies, Host Guarantee and other safeguards. It also makes it easy to find and reference important reservation details like a listing's address, your itinerary, check-in details, and other useful information. We can’t provide these benefits if your reservation isn’t booked and paid for directly through NextHunt.

Paying or communicating outside of NextHunt also makes it harder for us to protect your information and puts you at greater risk of fraud and other security issues, such as phishing.

Report suspicious messages
