Content in their Listing, along with updating and maintaining all information
in respect of its Accommodation and Listing, including the property

Host and should be included in the room price. The prices quoted by a Host in
their Listing must be inclusive of any applicable local taxes and charges.
5. Bookings & Payments
All bookings made through the Site and
Affiliate Websites are agreements between the Host and Guest. Once the Host has
agreed they are available for the requested dates, the Guest can proceed to
make the Booking where they agree to pay a non-refundable Booking Fee.
Applicable Booking Fees will be displayed to Guests prior to completion of the booking online. Whilst the Booking Fee is part of the price payable for the accommodation supplied by the Host, Homestay Technologies Limited will retain the booking fee as the consideration due from the Host for the supply of the services by Homestay Technologies Limited to the Host. Homestay Technologies reserves the right to change the Booking Fee at any time, giving adequate notice of any such changes before they become effective.
Homestay Technologies will process the
booking, charging the applicable Booking Fee and the Guest agrees to then pay
the Price of Stay to the Host. This payment is paid directly to the Host in
accordance with the Host's preferred payment method.
Most Hosts will require the Price of Stay paid on arrival, others may advise the Guest directly if they require part or full payment prior to arrival.
Where the Host wishes to receive the Price of Stay from the Guest in advance of the Guest’s arrival, the Host must clearly state this in their Homestay.com Listing.
Where a Host requests payment in full from
the Guest prior to arrival, the Guest should always make contact with Homestay
Technologies Limited directly prior to transferring payment in full.
In some jurisdictions it may be possible for Homestay Technologies Limited to collect a Deposit payment from the Guest on behalf of the Accommodation. In these circumstances the guests will pay part of the Price of the Stay upfront at the time of booking online. Homestay Technologies will transfer these monies through to the Accommodation one business day after the scheduled guest arrival. A Host Service Fee will be deducted from the Deposit amount at the time of transfer.
On completion of a Booking on the Site,
Homestay Technologies Limited will provide both Host and Guest with booking
confirmation emails, containing the necessary contact details, map, directions
and Accommodation booking details for the stay. Upon arrival, the Guest agrees
to abide by any house rules the Host had made visible on their Listing, during
the stay. The host is solely responsible for the accuracy of this information
on their Listing on the Site.
The Host agrees to honour all Bookings for the dates, room prices and room types as booked by the Guest through the Site or Affiliate Website. Homestay Technologies will use its best endeavours in co-operation with the Host to resolve any issues arising with respect to any Booking as quickly and efficiently as possible. Homestay Technologies Limited shall bear no responsibility for the compliance by the Host and/or Guest with the terms of any Booking and Homestay Technologies Limited disclaims all liability in this regard.
In the event that the Host must cancel a Booking, the Host agrees to notify Homestay Technologies Limited directly of the cancellation and the reason as to why the Booking cannot be honoured.
The Booking fee collected by Homestay
Technologies from Guests at the point of Booking, is non-refundable (except in
cases where the Host cancels the Booking). In any or all other cases where a
refund of the booking fee paid by the Guest is under review by Homestay
Technologies Limited, the Guest must have made raised the issue to the
attention of Homestay Technologies Ltd at least 48 hours after the check in
date. Failure to make contact within 48 hours of check in will mean a review
into the issue cannot to be undertaken.
Where the Guest has paid any or all of the Price of Stay directly to the Host in advance of arrival and then cancels the booking any eligible refund will be in accordance with the Hosts own cancellation policy as stated clearly in their Host profile and agreed to by you on booking.
Where the Guest has paid a deposit payment directly to Homestay Technologies Limited at the time of booking and the Guest cancels the Booking at least 7 days in advance to the arrival time and date, Homestay Technologies agrees to issue a full refund of that amount directly to the Guest. If the Guest has paid a deposit directly to Homestay Technologies at the time of booking and the Guest cancels the Booking less than 7 days prior to the arrival time and date, the deposit will be transferred directly to the Accommodation and the Guest will not be entitled to any refund of this amount.
Homestay Technologies Limited has no
control cancellations of Bookings and disclaims all liability in this regard.
