What if I need to cancel a booking?

We encourage you to only take requests you can accommodate to keep cancellations rare and keep your business growing. In cases where you do need to cancel, please contact your client first to let them know. Then, cancel the service from your Rover account. 

Note: Keep in mind that frequent last-minute cancellations can impact your visibility in search and may result in an automated record on your profile.
