Control to Hosts
Giving Hosts back control
Why Host Need Control of Deposits
Problem with other platforms
if you’ve been a host already for any period of time, odds are that you have had guests that have violated your rules or caused some damage to your property.
If you booked through a booking platform then you know how difficult it can be to claim damages or your security deposit.
Hosts set security deposits on these sites for exactly these reasons, yet they have to run through a long and tedious process to claim those deposits. Why is that?
It feels like YOU are on trial when attempting to claim what is rightfully yours to claim
Even then these platforms make this process incredibly difficult and at times will completely ignore you and your claims.
The result? Guest take advantage of the platform’s terms and conditions and you the host pays for it.
How Vacation Angel is giving you your power back
- Deposit amounts are set and collected by hosts on their Property Profiles.
- Deposits are held for 48 hours after a guest departs
- If a host puts in a claim for a deposit the deposits are granted.
- That’s it!
- No trial that lasts weeks and takes hours and hours of your time trying to contact support.
- We make it quick and easy. Just like it would be if you booked with the guest directly. The way it should be!
It’s your property. It’s time you were treated that way.
