Responsibility - Guest
As a guest seeking a room sharing partner, there are certain best practices we recommend which makes the stay convenient for both host & guest.
Send booking requests to hosts only after you have gone through all the details about the listing to improve the chances of your booking request being approved.
Accurate Check-In & Check-Out details
As a guest you have the option to send out multiple booking requests to different hosts. But it is essential that the information you provide in terms of the check-in & check-out dates are accurate because it helps us match your preferred dates to the check-in/check-out dates of hosts who have added their room listings.
Every time a host confirms your booking request, make sure you respond & complete the payment as soon as possible. As a host might receive multiple booking requests, the guest making the payment first would get a confirmed booking and your booking request would not be considered.
Commitment to Bookings
As a guest you have complete freedom to choose your room sharing partner. But once you have confirmed the booking, you need to honor your commitment and make sure that you check-in with the host as per the scheduled dates. In cases where you cannot avoid canceling the booking, make sure that you give the host sufficient time to look for an alternative room sharing partner. Also all cancellations will be subject to the cancellation policies of RoomShare.
Complete & Correct Information
For both hosts and guests, making their expectations clear before sharing a room can contribute to a better experience for everyone. As a guest your chances of booking requests getting approved increases by providing detailed information about yourself and clear expectations of what you expect from the host.
Creating a detailed profile page will help hosts make an informed decision before approving your booking requests. Complete & accurate information increases your chances of finding a compatible host.
