Homestay - host families
List view MapHomestay Certification We at homestaybooking.com want to provide our users with the highest level of security and professionalism we possibly can. Therefore all our homestay hosts listed have the chance to become certified.
Homestay host family certification means that the hosts send us copies of their IDs and(optional) their Criminal Record Certificates electronically. We compare the documents received with the personal data which the host provided to us for their website registration. If the information matches we mark those hosts as certified on our website giving details of whether we have checked the ID only or additionally the criminal record document. The documents themselves will not be shown on the website.
As the certification process causes a considerable amount of administration, the host will be asked to pay a fee for the initial certification. As not all of our hosts may want to spend this money, not every host on our website may be certified. If a host is not certified, this does not necessarily mean that the host is not trustworthy.
For all transactions on our website the rule still applies, that it is always the sole responsibility of the parties involved in the transaction (guest and host) to make sure, that they feel confident in trusting each other. homestaybooking.com has no liability for the transactions, as the contract is always between the guest and the host and never homestaybooking.com or it's affiliates.
If we certify a homestay host, we do this with all possible caution. However, there is always a small risk of fraud as we cannot visit each host personally. Therefore homestaybooking.com takes no liability for correctness of the information provided by the host, regardless of whether the host is certified or not.
