2. Platform


You understand and agree that (i) the Site merely is a platform that enables You and other Users (i.e. Hosts and Guests) to connect and conclude rental transactions in respect of properties listed on the Site and, consequently that (ii) Vacedo is not itself a party to any rental transaction and disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such transactions to the fullest extent permitted by law. Vacedo’s role is solely to facilitate the availability of the Site and Services for Users and to provide certain services related thereto. We do not purchase, buy-in, own, sell, provide, furnish, rent, sublet, control or manage nor can We contract in our own name for the provision of any holiday rental property listed on the Site.

Hosts may be either owners of any such holiday rental space or are persons, including professional property managers) who are duly authorised to arrange or enter into rental transactions of such properties direct with Guests.


We are therefore not a party to the actual rental transaction between Hosts and Guests and are not a contracting agent or representative of any Host. Rental transactions are only binding among the concerned Hosts and Guests, who are both solely and entirely responsible for their performance and Vacedo disclaims all liability arising from or in connection with such transactions. We encourage Users to communicate directly with one another regarding any bookings or listings made via the Site. Vacedo does not make any recommendations or endorsements of listed properties or Users of the Site and We assume no liability in respect of the condition of any listed property on our Site.

More information on how to add such requirements is available on our Site. All accommodations must have valid addresses in order to be featured in listings on the Site. Your listings will be made publicly available via the Site and Guests will be able to book Your holiday rental property via the Site based upon the information provided in Your listing. You, and not Vacedo, are solely responsible for determining the rental price to be displayed in Your listing and any additional charges (for example, cleaning fees) to be included or factored into such price (your “Host Fee”). You understand and agree that once a Guest requests a booking of Your listed accommodation, the rental rate You have set for such booking request may not be altered. As a Host, You acknowledge and agree that You are solely responsible for any and all of your listings of holiday rental properties on our Site.


7.2 You warrant, represent and undertake that all and any listings You place on Our Site relate to available accommodation at an existing property and that You have all necessary rights and permissions, including without limitation, planning permission, or, if You are not the owner of such property, the express authorisation from the owner, to deal with the property, including creating listings related to it and offering it for holiday rentals.


7.3 In accordance with these Terms, if, as a Host, you add a property as available for rental on our Site, Your Use of the Site is a means of enabling You to connect or be introduced to Users who may become Guests for the purposes of concluding a rental transaction with You. Our Service to You as a Host shall include supporting and assisting you in listing, marketing, promoting and advertising Your property on our Site. However, as noted above, We cannot and do not in any way act as a contracting agent or representative for You as a Host, nor as a broker or insurer in each case, in relation to Your rental transactions which You conclude with Guests via the Site, but we can and shall act as your disclosed agent or intermediary in Your name and on your behalf in relation to handling or managing payment collection processes involving advanced payment and cancellation transactions with Guests, which processes are governed by the Booking Terms. Our Service to You as a Host in relation to the provision of information and email or messaging services shall also include assisting You in respect of communications with Guests through the Site, for example, in receiving, notifying and forwarding to You any booking requests or enquiries made through the Site by a Guest and in receiving and handling cancellation requests from Guests.


7.4 You acknowledge and accept that We do not consider that we act as a travel agent generally in relation to the provision of our Site and/or our Service or in respect of Your actual rental transactions concluded with Guests as We are not a party to such actual rental transactions and We do not buy-in, re-sell or provide accommodation or other travel services in our own name as mentioned in Section 2 above. However if, as a matter of law or in the opinion of any tax or other authority in any jurisdiction Vacedo is or could be considered a travel agent in respect of taking part in, or providing Services consisting of the intermediation in, the provision of accommodation by Hosts to Guests pursuant to a booking on our Site, You acknowledge and accept that in those circumstances and for the purposes of these Terms and rental transactions You have concluded with Guests, the Service supplied by us in taking part in the provision of accommodation listed on our Site and/or in facilitating or providing intermediation in the conclusion of such rental transactions, shall be supplied to You as Host, acting as Your disclosed agent or intermediary in Your name and on your behalf and not in any way in our own name, as We shall not and cannot be a Host. Any necessary modifications may be made to these Terms as a consequence of this provision or part thereof applying.


7.5 You agree that in the event You conclude a rental transaction with a Guest as a result of using our Site and Service, then, in consideration of providing our Services, including support, payment facilitation, and any other services as intermediary, as part of our Service as further described herein to You as a Host, Vacedo shall charge You a service fee, exclusive of any applicable VAT and similar sales taxes which may be charged in addition thereon, and in respect of which We may issue or be required to issue to You as a Host a valid VAT or similar sales tax or other invoice (or We may so issue to You at Your reasonable request). Such fee is based upon a percentage 8-12% of Your Host Fee in relation to Your listed property, and shall be indicated and disclosed in the Host section of the Site. The higher the subtotal, the lower the percentage.


7.6 Our Service to You in respect of payment facilitation and processing shall not include the collection of deposits or additional charges from Guests that are not included or factored in your Host Fee and Vacedo shall not be responsible for administering or accepting a request or claim from You related to such additional charges or payments and disclaims any liability in this respect. You will need to carry out a separate arrangement with Guests in respect of such charges and expressly state in the listing of Your property that additional charges in the form of a deposit or otherwise (for example, cleaning fees,
security deposit and late checkout fees) are required separately from the Guest (for example upon arrival or check-out) if such charges are not included or factored in your Host Fee.


7.7 Please note, however, that as Host, You are solely responsible for honoring any booking confirmation sent to a Guest and for supplying and making available and providing Your listed property on the Site to the Guest on such terms, conditions, rules and restrictions as you have set and agreed with the Guest. As a Host, You acknowledge and agree that You are responsible for Your own acts and omissions and for the acts and omissions of any individuals (other than Guests and members of the Guest’s party) who reside at or are otherwise present at Your rental property. Each Host is solely responsible for compliance with laws, rules and regulations, including any tax and VAT requirements (see also the next provision below) and in respect of any conflict with or breach of rights of third parties.

You may also be required to issue an invoice, including without limitation, a valid VAT invoice to Your Guest in respect of your Host Fee and any additional charges whether or not included in your Host Fee. You should in any event consult your tax advisor.

Hosts further accept and acknowledge that We may contact You to require details (acting reasonably) of Your VAT registration number (if any) or otherwise copies of reasonable commercial evidence or records, for example contracts, business letterheads, a commercial website address, publicity material, certificates from fiscal authorities, in each case, which You shall provide or procure to provide within your power or ability to do so. A digital certificate from a reputable organisation can also be accepted for this purpose.


7.10 If Your listed property is requested by a Guest via our Site, you will be required to either confirm or reject the Guest’s request within 24 hours of that request, after which
the booking request shall automatically expire. If, as a Host, You confirm that Your listing is available and a Guest’s booking is subsequently accepted and confirmed by You through our Site, You will receive Your Guest’s relevant contact details (including phone number) from Us and We will also forward Your contact details to the Guest. Once such contact details have been provided, all communication including concerning details and information about the rental transaction should be direct between You and Your Guest through our Site as facilitated by our Service where required/applicable.


7.11 We shall hold all monies collected by Us from Guests upon a booking confirmation, subject to a duty to transfer or account to You in respect of such monies (provided always that You have honored such booking), which we shall pay to You by bank transfer or, for Euros payments only, PayPal transfer, in the currency you have set for the relevant property, less our Fees as described above. You acknowledge and agree that we shall be entitled to deduct and retain our Fees from such monies collected. We shall generally initiate the payment to You of all net monies collected from Guests which are due to You within two business days of the planned date of Your Guest’s check-in at Your listed property (and We shall have no further commitment to You under these Terms), subject to any other arrangement as may be agreed between You and Vacedo. Vacedo reserves the right to pay You in installments if the duration of the stay exceeds 21 days. If You do not honor a booking, You may lose Your entitlement to Your Host Fee and We reserve the right to retain the corresponding funds collected in order to refund the Guest as also referred to further in the Booking Terms.


7.12 Guests can cancel their booking at anytime, but always accordingly to the cancellation policy that You have selected as a Host. In the event a Guest cancels, We shall transfer to You the monies collected by Us from such Guest, less our Fee, in accordance with Your selected cancellation policy.


7.13 As a Host, You should not cancel a confirmed booking. If however, exceptional circumstances require You to cancel a booking, please contact us for assistance in relation to Your communications with the Guest. Please also refer to the Booking Terms in this respect in terms of refunds payable to Guests.


7.14 We reserve the right to cancel any booking at any time for security or fraud-protection purposes.
