No, it is absolutely FREE to list your properties.
Of course, there is no limit in how many properties you will list on TravelStaytion. In fact the more properties you add the more chances you will have of securing a booking.
Certainly! What we look for is professionalism and a high standard of service. This is the most fundamental facet for any property listed on our site. If for instance, your town does not offer reliable public transportation, we recommend you offer transportation arrangements to your guests to make their stay more pleasant.
If you face any issues inserting the address of your property, please contact us at [email protected], or you can have a Live Chat with a member of our team directly. We use Google Geolocation, and sometimes some property addresses are not recognised. Nevertheless, we have a dedicated host department that will help you finalise this process.

The description of your property has incredible significance. Essentially it is your way to make it distinct, and entice your potential guests.. Let them know why they should book you over another host. Try to be very accurate and include as many details as you can. It is important for the guests to be very well informed about your property so that they know what to expect. We recommend describing various aspects including but not limited to the amenities, rooms, and the neighbourhood. We also encourage you to describe any negative aspects of your property. Transparency is always appreciated by our guests.
When describing your property, we advise you to don't promise something you can't deliver. We would recommend that when listing your property, you list as many features as possible such as whether there is Wi-Fi service, free cleaning or local shops. Let the guests know what is it about your place that makes it stands out. We also encourage you to describe any negative aspects of your property. Transparency is always appreciated by our guests.
Good quality photos are incredibly valuable to guests in terms of booking a property. Properties with quality photos tend to generate more bookings, and for this reason we advise that when taking pictures, you get as much natural lighting, tidy up and keep your setting to a minimal. By describing your property accurately and uploading beautiful photos, you give guests a clearer picture and they can make more confident decisions.
In order to make changes to your listings, you need to select the edit listing option from the 'edit your listings' section from your user's dashboard. From there you will be able to manage your listings by altering the description, dates and prices.

There are different factors that affect your property's visibility:

1.TravelStaytion Quality and Comfort Algorithm: This is a fair feature that we have in place that ranks properties based on the features provided to guests. Such features range from flexible cancellation, updated calendars and rates, and quality photos. Look for the "boost my property" information box to see what features you can choose to increase your visibility and track them in the "my ranking" section;

2. Customer reviews rating: The better reviews you have on your property, the higher the visibility for the listing. We recommend you to always ask the guest for a review after their stay.

3. Response rate and acceptance rate: The quicker you are at replying to your guests and the more consistent in accepting booking enquiries, the more popular you will be among the travellers.
All featured properties are ranked based on guest's reviews and experiences and the comforts, conveniences and services provided by the host (i.e. luggage storage service, emergency number, self check-in service, etc.). (Guest's Reviews + Property Comforts + Host Reception Services) = TravelStaytion.com rating
You can easily increase your reservations by implementing the following:

1. Offer discounts when possible.
2. Use quality photos. Make sure the room is tidy, the pictures are clear and the lighting is bright.
3. Keep your rates and calendar up to date.
4. Respond quickly to the enquiries and reservation requests that you receive. 5. Contact our host's team to discuss your needs and we will help you boost your properties.
We strongly advise you to be diligent with the amount of information you share. It is for your own personal interest that we ask you to take caution for your privacy and safety.
If you want to delete your listing, you can choose from two options. You can either contact our team on: +44 (0)20 3624 0359 from 9:00AM till 9:00PM Monday to Wednesday and 9:30AM till 7:30PM Thursday and Friday, or email us at: [email protected] Alternatively you can hide it from the search results. The "hide" option is located in the "manage my listings" section in your dashboard. It is the red "off" button on the right side of each listing.
Absolutely. In fact we actively encourage you to synchronise as many as you can. Visit your edit your property page in the dashboard and at the "calendar" section, look for the option "sync my calendar". This will allow you to import and update calendars seamlessly from any other platforms that you use. Keeping your calendar synchronised and updated makes it easier for us to promote your listings and boost your properties overall.
TravelStaytion has a vigorous verification process in place and several verification layers are used. This helps us to create a safe environment and to prevent fraud. We do this to ensure a community that is based on trust.
You can easily access your upcoming and past reservations by going to your Dashboard > Hosting > Upcoming / Past Reservations. Also, every time you receive a new reservation you will find a notification in your dashboard (click dashboard > notifications); and you will also receive an automatic email.
There is no charge policy; the selected prices depend entirely on you. We strongly advise you to check some other listings in your area, similar to yours in order to get an understanding about the market. If you are a new host you may find it useful to charge slightly less than your competition in order to get more booking reservations.
Yes, hosts are very welcome to adjust and apply different rates, depending on the season of the year. The prices that you set are entirely up to your discretion.
You can charge a cleaning fee which is located in additional costs which can be found in the Pricing & Terms section under the edit my listings option from the hosting menu. However, we recommend you to include cleaning costs in your nightly rates.
It is well within your rights as a host to ask for a security deposit, but TravelStaytion has no involvement in the negotiations and handling of deposits. The transaction cannot be processed through our website; you need to arrange terms privately with your guest. In order to charge a security deposit to your guests the amount must be detailed clearly in your description.
There is a time limit up to 24 hours for hosts to either accept or decline booking requests. We advise that you avoid letting a booking request expires or decline it. Expired or declined booking requests will negatively impact your ranking on our website.
You are entitled to reject a booking request but only in extreme and rare circumstances. We expect your property to be fully updated and able to accommodate any requests. Your ranking score is partially dependent on your rejection/expiration rate.
If a guest decided to cancel his/her reservation you will receive payment according to your selected cancellation policy. In this case we advise you to check the cancellation policy page, or contact the Travelstaytion team on: +44 (0)20 3624 0359 from 9:00AM to 9:00PM Monday to Wednesday, and from 9:30AM to 7:30PM Thursday to Friday (CET).

The host reception is a range of extra services that you as a host can provide to your guest; this devotion to quality of service is what distinguishes our partners from other platforms. You can offer them at any time during the guest's stay; it is up to you whether to charge for these services or not. The host services are a key aspect of our value proposition, therefore the better host services you offer, the higher the visibility of your property on the search results.

The payment for your booking is released within two business days after the planned check in date of your guest. If you are a new host, we may hold off on payment for slightly longer in order to ensure our guests have had a smooth check in experience.

The only way for a guest to pay is through our secure payment system on TravelStaytion. This is for the security of both the guests and the hosts. Once the booking request has been confirmed, the guests will need to pay the full amount for their stay online through our payment system. We strongly urge that you never agree to accept payment without using TravelStaytion's payment system. Do not accept any transfer of money in any method that does not adhere to these terms.

Additional fees are charges that you can apply on top of the nightly rate that you set. These fees include but are not limited to cleaning, damage, deposit and late checkout. Please note that the cleaning fee is inclusive of the total amount paid by the guest, and is collected by TravelStaytion. However, fees such as late check out, and security deposits are not charged and processed from TravelStaytion. Additional fees are required to be arranged with the guest. These fees must be included in the property description.
The cleaning fee is included in the price that is paid by the guest, and is paid to you along with the price paid for the rental.
The deposit fee cannot be processed through our website. Guests and hosts are liable for negotiating terms. The deposit is usually paid in the local currency upon arrival. Security deposits can only be collected, if stated in the Pricing and Offers section. At check out, the deposit should be fully refunded as long as there is no damage to the property.

When you receive an availability request and for whatever reason you can't accommodate the guest at the particular property, you can suggest an alternative option to your potential guest. This platform allows you to provide alternative solutions to your potential guests that caters to everyone's needs.
We always recommend that you exchange keys directly with your guests, as this is the best way to make a good first impression. It also gives you a great chance to take time to share local tips, answer their questions, and help them to make the most out of their experience. If you are unable to meet your guests, please inform them of this prior to their arrival and also provide them with self-check in instructions to ensure a stress free check in experience.
In the unlikely event of your guest not arriving we urge that your firstly try to contact your guest directly. If you cannot reach him/her, please contact our team at TravelStaytion directly on: +44 (0)20 3624 0359 from 9:00AM till 9:00PM Monday to Wednesday and 9:30AM and 7:30PM Thursday and Friday (CET). Alternatively you can contact us via email: [email protected].
Reviews are incredibly valuable in the booking process. At TravelStaytion we understand the importance of this, and to help facilitate this process once a guest has stayed in your property a member of the Travelstaytion team will send an email asking for his/her feedback. We strongly recommend all guests leave reviews. Note: Only guests that have stayed in a property can leave a review. This is in the interest of all parties, and helps to safeguard a fair and objective booking platform.
A. Go above and beyond - Exceeding expectations of your guests comes down to paying attention to detail. For example what type of guests are you entertaining – are they young? If so a suggestion of local clubs or activities can go a long way.
B. Communication - Making sure that you are in contact with your guest when they need your assistance is paramount. It shows that you care, and that you are reliable.
C. Give an accurate and detailed description - A description gives your guests an understanding of what to expect. Make sure your descriptions are accurate, clear and do not promise anything that you are unable to deliver.
D. Quality of service - A 5 star service, and going the extra mile is vital in ensuring great feedback. Remember! Leaving a good impression, leaves good FEEDBACK.
Reviews are pinnacle in getting your next booking. If a customer is interested in a property listing they are more than likely to check the reviews, as the reviews provide users with more certainty. A negative review can impede your chances to secure future bookings. If a guest does leave a negative review, we strongly recommend that you deal with the situation by contacting the guest directly and finding out what went wrong and what could have been done better.

Our platform wants to ensure easy navigation so you have access to reach hosts for any possible questions that you may have. You can check the hosts' answers in your inbox. Whilst we encourage communication between hosts and guests, please be careful in making sure that you do not exchange any contact details, such as phone numbers and email addresses.
TravelStaytion prides itself on not only offering you purely just a property for your stay, but with it, host services that help to enhance your experience. The Host reception is a range of services that the host/property management company can offer you prior, during or after your stay. Every host can select from a list of services, such as emergency assistance, airport pick up and luggage drop off. These services are either included in the total cost or may include an extra charge. All Host reception services offered by your host, can be found in every listing together with the property details.
All the hosts we collaborate with, go through a thorough background check, to establish that they have a positive hosting record and years of experience in the industry; but on top of this we particularly collaborate only with professional hosts and established property management companies. We take verifying hosts incredibly seriously as it safeguards the experiences of our travellers and we take every possible measure in order to make certain of this.
When a booking is made a significant distance in advance, an 'early bird' discount is applied to the total price of the booking. The discount amount varies in accordance to the home-owner's preferences.
When a booking is made for a lengthy period of time, a discount is applied to the total price of the booking. The discount amount varies in accordance to the homeowner's preferences.
When a booking is made with short notice, a last minute discount offer is applied to the total price of the booking. The discount amount varies in accordance to the homeowner's preferences.
A best price guarantee is our promise that the price displayed for any given property (during specific selected dates) will not be matched by any other booking platform. You will not find the property for those specific dates cheaper anywhere else. This is a TravelStaytion promise.
The best way to do this is simply by entering your destination, dates, and number of guests in the search engine.

Yes you can. This is a great feature that has been created to improve your convenience and to provide flexibility. Travelstaytion allows you to pay your reservation in several instalments (up to four). The total price of the booking may vary depending of the number of instalments that you will choose to pay. However, paying in instalments is not always available. The split payment icon will be visible on the search results page, on the properties where this option is available. In the payment page you will be able to select the number of instalments as per your convinience.
If you cancel a booking that you are paying in instalments, the cancellation policy works as described. In case of a cancellation in split or shared payment booking plans, the customer is refunded based on the cancellation policy applied to the property. However TravelStaytion fees are not refundable.
According to our TravelStaytion Payment Plan terms, if you fail to pay your instalment within the deadline and you fail to notify us, your booking will be cancelled and we will refund you according to the cancellation policy.
On our platform you can invite your friends to share a reservation with you. To do so in the payment page, select the shared payment icon, and add the email addresses of the people you would like to invite to the payment. The booking will not be processed until everyone has paid their share of the total bill. All the invited guests, will be able to proceed to payment within 24 hours and the property will remain available until all guests have paid their share of the reservation. The total price of the booking may increase, depending on the number of people paying.
The currency that you will pay for your reservation will be the one requested by the host. The currencies that are currently supported are GDP, US Dollars and Euros.
We are currently working to provide different payment options in your more currencies. However, you can view the price in any available currency on our website. Simply go to to the bottom left of your screen to change it.
Additional fees can be included but are not limited to cleaning, security deposits or late/ early check in fees. The cleaning fee is always included in the price, however the security deposit is paid and processed directly with your host. Note: Any additional fees such as late check in or early check in, needs to be listed in the description of the property.
Yes, hosts are welcome to charge a cleaning fee, which will need to be added in the pricing section of the property and will be included in your total payment. Cleaning fees help with ensuring guest's comfort. The cleaning fee is not payable upon arrival and is processed through TravelStaytion.
Hosts are welcome to ask for a security deposit, but it is not processed through the website. Guests and hosts have to arrange it by themselves and agree on it. Your deposit should be fully refunded as long as there is no damage occurred to the property. The security deposit should be mentioned at the property page and at the booking confirmation. It should only be payable if it is mentioned clearly there.
No it won't. Your debit/credit card will only be charged when your booking request is confirmed.
You may receive an alternative option to the property you were initially interested in as the host was may not be able to meet your requirements. It’s for this reason that hosts have the ability to recommend an alternative option matching the pricing and dates you originally requested. If this is a suitable option for you, you will be able to proceed to payment and book the property.
The check in/check out times will be listed clearly in your booking confirmation. Once the booking is confirmed and in order to arrange your specific check in and check out for your booking, we advise that you contact the host directly. Please make sure to provide your host with an estimated time of arrival and set up an appointment for your check in. In doing so, both parties help to facilitate a smooth check in experience.
The check-in/out time depends on the host and the specific property. Most of our hosts are happy to accommodate your check in and check out requests. Nevertheless it is fundamentally important to contact your host prior to the arrival date in order to agree and confirm your check in time. Your host will also inform you about the check out time at the property. The check-in/out time can be negotiated and agreed with the host once the booking has been confirmed.
Situations like this can happen and it is of course outside of your control. If you are in a situation similar to this we recommend you to notify your host as soon as you realise that there will be delays with your check in. Some of our hosts provide flexible/24 hour check ins; others may charge a fee for a late check in. Therefore it is always important to speak directly to hosts after your booking has been confirmed, and make arrangements with them. Also make sure to keep them updated regarding your arrival time at the property.
Once you have received your booking confirmation, you will have all the necessary details of the host. Please contact your host directly in order to arrange picking up the keys of the property.
The return of keys are best agreed and arranged with the host. After you check in to the property, your host will let you know about all the important details for a pleasant stay and when and where you are expected to return the keys.
If by any chance you have made a reservation and your host does not turn up, we strongly recommend that you firstly give him/her a call.
