Website features, contracts between users, and payment methods.
3.1 Bydays offer registered users an online platform by which they can enable other users to utilize (but by no means own) and act as guests in their entire property provided that both users have agreed to a price and the payment of the agreed price has been completed. Likewise, a user can search the website for suitable accommodation and request a booking via this online platform. Bydays makes data found on its website available for guests and hosts to then voluntarily come to an agreement and use the accommodation at a price agreed between them beforehand.
3.2 The accommodation provider will be referred to hereinafter as the ‘host’, while the person seeking accommodation will be referred to as the ‘guest’. The term ‘user’ refers to both the host and the guest.
3.3 Bydays offers all users the opportunity to use the online platform both as a host as well as a guest.
3.4 It is specifically emphasized that Bydays does not directly offer accommodation, nor participate in any way with the contracts concluded between users (hosts and guests). Within the framework of contract negotiations between guest and host, Bydays does not submit any declarations of will.
3.5 Bydays takes on the simple and operative management of the service discussed in these T&Cs;.
3.6 Bydays displays all accommodation prices exactly as they have been entered by the host. The prices displayed are decided solely by the host of the property and Bydays has absolutely no influence or say regarding accommodation prices posted on the website.
3.7 Bydays offer users the opportunity to publish their own content in the form of images and text.
3.8 Bydays communicates reservation requests made by guests to hosts via the website, email, SMS and/or similar means.
3.9 Bydays transmits the acceptance of a binding booking request from the host to the guest and thus the guest and host finalise a contract with each other regarding the use of the accommodation. Consequently, Bydays sends an email to the host and the guest again specifying the information provided by the contracting parties including: the type of accommodation; duration of stay; price; and for the first time, in this email there will be an exchange of further personal contact details between the host and guest (contact details previously entered on to the website, hidden from the user ́s public profile but sent to the other party involved in a finalised booking/reservation).
3.10 Bydays offer users the option to configure an extensive personal profile, however this is not compulsory. To begin using the service, the website will only require the data mentioned in 2.4. Bydays will facilitate the exchange of personal (additional) data between guest and host only if a binding reservation between the parties takes place. Bydays is not responsible for the information specified in the user profile, the user accepts sole responsibility.
3.11 Bydays offer users a credit balance that will be credited as a result of specific actions such as: registering suggested friends, writing an initial review etc. These credits have no cash value, but can be used during payment on the website when a booking through Bydays takes place. The specific terms for credit offers will be published separately when such offers are available.
3.12 Bydays offer users a messaging system within the website through which they can communicate with each other. Users are solely responsible for the content of their messages.
3.13 Bydays offer users a rating system through which they can evaluate other users.
3.14 Bydays offer insurance to hosts. Visit the Insurance for hosts section on our website or via this link for detailed information regarding our insurance policies.
3.15 Bydays can't guarantee that the website and the services will always be available in a continuous way. We strive to maintain that these services are always accessible; however, regular maintenance, extensions or technical failures may limit or temporarily halt operations.
4.1 With the acceptance of the binding booking request, an effective contract comes into force between the host and guest regarding the host’s obligation to make an accommodation available for the guest’s use for a certain period of time and the guest’s obligation to pay the specified fee to the host for this. The fee to be paid results from the price agreed between the host and guest for the usage of the accommodation (accommodation price), and any other payments agreed such as cleaning fees, which are already visible in the accommodation profile.
4.2 With the binding contract in effect, the guest must immediately make the agreed payment, which will be held by Bydays until 24 hours after checking in to the property.
4.3 Bydays commits to paying the host a sum of the accommodation price minus a maximum fee of 15% of the accommodation price. If the host requests to receive their payment in a currency different from that displayed on the website, such payments will be subject to changes in exchange rates. Bydays can provide the host with special promotions and/or discounts that are subject to conditions imposed solely by Bydays, in this case the user will be notified about the discounts and/or special promotions mentioned above, through the user account and/or mail.
4.4 The parties agree that the price is paid 24 hours after the check-in of the guest at the accommodation, on the condition that there has been no reason to terminate the contract. Any disputes must be reviewed by Bydays.
5.1 In the event of a cancellation, both guest and host have revoked the contract regarding the accommodation unanimously. In principle, the cancellation is only possible for the guest according to the cancellation policy. Depending on the cancellation policy set by the host, the claim for recovery of the accommodation price paid by the guest may be refused, completely valid or in part.
5.2 The guest can also file this objection towards Bydays as the new creditor of the receivable. Bydays is consequently obligated to reimburse the guest for the corresponding cancellation amount pursuant to the cancellation conditions agreed between the guest and host.
5.3 In the event that the guest raises a dispute and so files a complaint against the host, in written format (via email) within the 24 hour period after check-in time, as a result of finding defects or problems with the property, Bydays will review such complaints and attempt to provide a solution for each specific case, to be commonly agreed by the guest and host.
5.4 If the parties (guest and host) come to a common agreement, the accommodation price may subsequently be reduced as a solution to the dispute.
5.5 In the case of a dispute resulting in a discounted accommodation price being later agreed (due to previously unknown damages or defects being found in the property) Bydays will reimburse the agreed amount to the guest.
5.6 If parties (the guest and host) later agree on a cheaper accommodation price, the host is still obliged to pay Bydays the commission amount calculated from the accommodation price originally agreed during the booking.
5.7 In the event that no commonly agreed solution is reached within two weeks after the guest check-out date, Bydays will be forced to settle the debt in full through legal processes. The host and the guest are obliged to cooperate by providing honest and true data.
6.1 If given any reason to suspect that guest and host are acting simultaneously in prejudice against Bydays pending the completion of a joint agreement regarding the use of accommodation with no intention to actually use such accommodation, but instead to act fraudulently against Bydays; or if suspected of negotiations under the penal code, all parties of that contract will agree that the claim sold is considered nonexistent and the agreed purchase price (accommodation price minus the commission and fixed price service) will not be paid to the host while the guest and/or host cannot be exempted from the suspected fraud.
6.2 Bydays are obliged to reimburse the money already paid by the guest, minus any fees expended for the processing of suspected fraud, which may in some cases extend to one hundred percent of the amount paid by the guest.
7.1 Bydays give hosts the ability to advertise their accommodation on the website using a description, images, price(s), availability calendar and a hosting profile, as well as the ability to specify and charge additional fees.
7.2 Bydays offer hosts the opportunity to set up a cancellation policy for their guests. The cancellation conditions chosen by the host will be a binding part of the contract between host and guest. The contract between host and guest may be revoked only in the event that both parties declare their consent to the revocation and an approval has been shared with the Bydays team in written form by email at least one week before the previously agreed check in date and without prejudice to our commission.
7.3 Bydays transmits binding booking requests to hosts from guests. With the acceptance of the booking request from the host a binding contract between guest and host is implemented.
8.1 The host agrees to fulfill the service delivery and its cancellation policy.
8.2 The host agrees to provide true and correct information, including payment information.
8.3 The host should complete the offer posted regarding their accommodation with accurate and up-to-date information, with images that correspond with the reality of their accommodation, allowing the guest to make a decision concerning the status and characteristics of the property.
8.4 The host agrees to specify in the accommodation profile the full price of that offer, in which VAT and any other component of the price are included. The price charged for any other services besides accommodation must be expressly stated in the offer in a separate section, with no possibility of acquiring the payment of any service if it has not previously been explained on our website.
8.5 The host is obliged to offer their guests the possibility to cancel (as part of the Bydays service). The cancellation policy is part of the contract between host and guest.
8.6 The host agrees to indicate in the accommodation profile if any rooms or objects in the property are not included in the right of use or other rules of conduct that are part of the contract. The "House Rules" to be completed by the host are intended to indicate such rules.
8.7 The host agrees to accept or reject requests from guests within 24 hours. Failure to respond within 24 hours will result in the offer automatically being cancelled.
s8.8 The host agrees not to charge the guest any other fee, commission or additional payments apart from the total price indicated in the accommodation profile.
8.9 The host agrees to give an invoice to the guest if requested. The invoice provided must be in line with the local regulations of where the property involved in the booking is located.
8.10 The host agrees to ensure that the identity of the other contracting party is correct. Bydays is not responsible for the accuracy of the identity of users, although will try to ensure data reliability thereof. Due to limitations with online identity checking the possibility exists that the user is not using accurate information, therefore both parties (guest and host) must ensure this themselves.
8.11 The host agrees to facilitate Bydays with all information regarding the guest, thorough and truthful, for the exercise of the courts in case necessary. Bydays reserves the right to involve the host in the process within the possibilities from the Spanish law of civil and criminal prosecution.
