How does the guest booking work?

Guests will look for properties by entering a destination to start a search, or press "View All Properties." They can also view the prices, and from this they will select places where they wish to stay. Once a guest has selected dates and moved through the booking form, the host will be notified.  

 

What is the guest cancellation policy?

  • Each listing will specify its own cancellation policy, so as the host, this is determined by you.

Bud and Breakfast allows for extenuating circumstances in short term booking cancellations:

  • Death of a family member.
  • Severe illness.
  • Natural disaster.
  • Political unrest in your country.

How can I manage calendars on 3 or more channels?

 We share booking info for AirBnB and many other "channels" through CloudBed's MyAllocator.

 
Sign up for an account with MyAllocator, add one "room type" which will represent your property.  Add more room types if you have multiple rooms.  If you have multiple rooms of the same type, a maximum inventory value can be set.
 
At this point this is your "main calendar". Add Bud And Breakfast as a channel, and "map" the property in MyAllocator to the property in Bud And Breakfast.
 
Bookings in any channel (Bud And Breakfast, AirBnB) will update all the other channels.  You can also manually block or free your property through MyAllocator interface and those changes are sent.

How do I get paid?

Bud and Breakfast will payout to your bank account via direct pay or we can mail you a check after your guest has checked in. This avoids issues that come from last minute cancellations.  Payouts are subject to the Bud and Breakfast service fee, so we subtract 4 percent from the amount that is paid by the guest. 

 

Are pictures of my space important?

Yes! Never underestimate the benefit of great pictures. Industry insights and analysis shows that hosts who used professionally shot images of their space experience a higher amount of repeat booking than hosts who do not. A good photo can capture the imagination of potential guests, it also means that guests have a better idea of what to expect when they arrive. Your listing's photo gallery is your opportunity to showcase what you have to offer. 

 

Can I contact the guest?

You can only contact the guest when booking is confirmed 

 

Are there contracts?

There are no contracts. Guests and hosts are welcome to exchange contracts once a booking is confirmed.
