You pay us partly or the full amount beforehand. Depending on your payment, the remaining amount has to be paid to the host directly after a satisfactory experience.
Full payment in advance:
When making a reservation, it is possible you have to pay the full amount in advance. In this case you pay us the full amount stated on the website which is paid to the host, within 72 hours after the reserved event has taken place in a satisfactory manner, while deducting the Withlocals fee payable by the host. As a traveler no additional payments are needed; when the reservation is confirmed by us, all payments are done.
Partial payment in advance:
In some cases, you will be asked to pay a share of the full amount upfront, as stated on our website. In this case, the remaining unpaid share has to be paid by the traveler to the host directly after the reserved event has taken place in a satisfactory manner.
In case of a full payment in advance, Withlocals will facilitate the payment as a commercial agent on behalf of the host. Therefore, by accepting this Terms & Conditions, the host enters into an agreement with Withlocals determining that Withlocals is authorized to negotiate or conclude the sale of the services provided by the host on behalf of the host.
Once you (being the guest) have made the payment, you have discharged your payment obligation, i.e. there is final settlement of the host's claim on you as a guest.
