How do I cancel a service?

We get it: Sometimes plans change and you may need to cancel a service before it’s begun. No problem—you can do this all within your Rover account.

First things first: know your sitter’s cancellation policy. Depending on the date of the cancellation and your sitter’s policy, you may be entitled to a full or partial refund. You can find out what policy your sitter has in place by visiting their profile page.

Hover your mouse over the cancellation policy to read more. You’ll see details about one of the following four policies:

 Same day

For boarding, house sitting, and drop-in visits:

  • A full refund is available if a pet owner cancels before the beginning of the booking. 
  • If cancelled on or after the beginning of the booking, a 50% refund is available for the first seven cancelled days, and a 100% refund is available for any additional days.

For walks and doggie day care:

  • A full refund is available if the dog owner cancels before the booking begins.

One day

  • A full refund is available if a pet owner cancels by 12:00pm the day before the booking begins.
  • If cancelled later than 12:00pm the day before the booking begins, a 50% refund is available for the first seven cancelled days of the service, and a 100% refund is available for any additional days.

Three day

  • A full refund is available if a pet owner cancels by 12:00pm three days before the booking begins.
  • If cancelled later than 12:00pm three days before the booking begins, they’ll receive a 50% refund for the first seven days of the booking, and a 100% refund is available for any additional days.

Seven day

  • A full refund is available if a pet owner
  •  cancels by 12:00pm one week before the booking begins.
  • If cancelled later than 12:00pm one week before the booking begins, they’ll receive a 50% refund for the first seven days of the booking and a 100% refund is available for any additional days.

How to Cancel a Service Before It Begins

1. Navigate to your Inbox by selecting the envelope icon.

2. Select the Upcoming Stays tab and then select the request you want to cancel.

3. Once the request is open, locate the grey box that lists your service details. Select Cancel booking.

4. A pop-up form will ask you to give some details about why you’re canceling. This message goes directly to Rover Support and will not go to your sitter. Select Submit Request.

5. Select Yes, I want to cancel.

If you haven’t told your sitter that you’ll need to cancel a service already, it’s a good idea to communicate that to them now in your request messages.

Once your cancellation has been initiated, you and your sitter will receive confirmation emails from Rover. You can expect your refund (dependent on your sitter’s cancellation policy) to the original form of payment within 1–3 business days.
