Help Bookings

What's the cancellation policy?

The Handy platform is made to be flexible, but we have some rules.

Our policies are designed to promote a reliable, consistent experience for customers and pros alike.

While we know schedules can change quickly, rescheduling or skipping a booking with short notice causes professionals to lose valuable work. Therefore, fees apply when bookings are cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours (but more than 2 hrs) of your booking's start time.

Cleaning Plan Cancellation Policy

If your plan carries a minimum term of 3, 6, or 12 months, skipped bookings during the term will be billed and added to your saved cleaning credits. Additionally cancelling your cleaning plan before the end of the term will result in a cancellation fee of $99 in the US and Canada and £60 in the UK.

Learn how to cancel your plan here.


Handy Select Cancellation Policy

Handy Select memberships automatically renew on either a monthly or yearly basis. You will not be charged a Handy Select fee for the subsequent period if you cancel your Handy Select at least three days before your next Handy Select renewal date.
