There are cases where customers would ask you to remove their booking. This is when we recommend that you cancel the booking instead of removing it completely.
What's the difference between canceling and deleting a booking?
When a booking is canceled, it leaves a trace in the system. This way you can always come back and check when the booking was originally requested and who asked for its cancellation. Further, when you or a member cancels a booking, the cancellation policy gets applied ensuring the proper charge is applied to the customer account.
You would only delete bookings when you don't want to keep any traces of them and you don't need any cancellation policies to be applied.
