Booking Procedure

As a user of the Website, you may create an Accommodation listing for visitors (“Listing”).  To create a Listing, you will be asked questions about the Accommodation to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, size, capacity, features, and availability of the Accommodation.  You may also be asked to provide an accurate photograph or photographs of the Accommodation.  You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all information you post in your Listing(s).  You acknowledge that any Listing you post will be in compliance with all applicable laws and tax requirements.  You acknowledge that any Listing you post will not violate any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, including but not limited to those with condominium or homeowners associations, leases, or other rental agreements.  You acknowledge that any Listing you post will not conflict with the rights of third parties. BudLodge, Inc. reserves the right to remove any listing for any reason.

Each Host hereby agrees that BudLodge, Inc. shall be the Host’s exclusive payment processor for accepting the fees paid by Guests for Accommodations (“Accommodation Fees”).  Each host agrees that payment for an Accommodation made by a Guest shall be considered and treated the same as a payment made directly to the Host, and the Host will make the Accommodation available to the Guest in the agreed-upon manner as if the Host had received the Accommodation Fees itself.  Each host agrees that BudLodge, Inc. may permit the Guest to cancel the booking upon reasonable terms, and refund to the Guest applicable Accommodation Fees. If upon arrival the accommodation is clearly not as represented, the guest has 24 hours to notify BudLodge, Inc. customer service of the issue. Each Host acknowledges that BudLodge, Inc.’s obligation to pay the Host is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payment(s) from the Guests. BudLodge, Inc. does not guarantee payments to Hosts for amounts that have not been received by BudLodge, Inc. from Guests. BudLodge, Inc. assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Host.

All Guests acknowledge that Hosts, and not BudLodge, Inc., are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Accommodations reserved through the Website.  Any Guest choosing to enter into a transaction with a Host for the booking of an Accommodation agrees and understands that it will be entering into an agreement with the Host and agrees to accept any terms, conditions, and restrictions associated with such Accommodation imposed by the Host.  Each Guest acknowledges that it, and not BudLodge, Inc., will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Taste of Travel is not party to any agreement, and that BudLodge, Inc. disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.

All Members acknowledge that appropriate governmental authorities where the Accommodation is located may require taxes to be collected by Hosts from Guests on the amount paid for the right use or occupy Accommodations.  The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these taxes are generally required to be remitted to the taxing authority by Hosts based on particular amounts collected, and may be charged to Guests.  Hosts hereby agree that they are solely responsible for determining their applicable taxes and their tax reporting requirements.

Guests are responsible for leaving the Accommodation in the condition it was in when they arrived.  You acknowledge and agree that, as a Guest, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation.  You agree to pay the cost of replacing any damaged items at the Accommodation with equivalent items.

Both Guests and Hosts agree to cooperate with BudLodge, Inc. in good faith and to provide BudLodge, Inc. such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by BudLodge, Inc. in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Accommodations or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation.  If you are a Guest, you understand and agree that BudLodge, Inc. reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s, or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you have caused or been responsible for or to an Accommodation or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation.  You as a Guest agree to cooperate with and assist BudLodge, Inc. in good faith, and to provide Taste of Travel with such information as may be reasonably requested by BudLodge, Inc. in order to make a claim under your relevant insurance policy.
