How do I get paid?
Payout: In order for a host to receive payment for a reservation via the AFLOATBNB.COM payment system, they will need to add their payment method. The preferred payment method can be added at: Account > Payout Preferences.
Available payment options and currencies differ by country. To see a list of the payment options available to you, click the ‘Add Payout Method’ button and select your country.
Bank transfer / International wire: Depending on your location, you may need to enter your account number or IBAN. Your bank can provide you with all the necessary details, or you can usually find these easily if you have online banking.
PayPal: Your PayPal account name is an email address. Make sure that it is activated by visiting PayPal.com
Every host has one default ‘Payout Method’, however you can have multiple methods. Your default Payout Method is your preferred way to be paid.
Once a payment is scheduled to be paid, it will automatically be released to your default payment method. Every reservation for which you receive a payment, includes the AFLOATBNB.COM service fee.
When do I get paid?
As a safety mechanism, although AFLOATBNB.COM collects guest payments immediately as soon as a reservation is accepted, we then hold the payment. This is held until approximately 24 hours after check-in, it is then released to the host.
Your payment is released to your payment method approximately 24 hours after check-in*. Every reservation for which you receive a payment includes the AFLOATBNB.COM service fee. The time it takes to receive a payment after it is released, depends on the payment method. You can check on the status of your due payments at any time in your Transaction History: Account > Transaction History
The average time it takes to receive a payment once released is shown when adding a payment method. The usual times are:
Bank transfer/International wire - 3 to 7 business days.
PayPal - Instantly Availability depends on the contry.
Please note: Weekends and holidays are not classed as business days; therefore payments cannot be processed on weekends or bank holidays. For example, if your guest checks in on a Friday, your payment will be released on Saturday. However as banks are not open over the weekend, the first business day to be counted is the Monday.
If you have multiple listings with check-ins on the same day, any payments going to the same method will be deposited together in one lump sum. Some payment methods, such as Western Union, have a minimum payment amount of $60. If a minimum payment amount is set, your payment will not be released until this amount is met.
If you are waiting for a payment, please note that we will not be able to help you track it until after 2 weeks from the date of release.
The check-in time is taken from your listing's details (or at 3 PM in your time zone, if you have no check-in time selected). In the event of a guest cancellation, any payment owed is issued approximately 24 hours after the original scheduled check-in date.
What are host service fees?
AFLOATBNB.COM charges hosts a 3.75% host service fee, every time a booking is completed on our online platform. This fee covers our charges for running the site and comes out of the hosts’ payment. We also charge guests a guest service fee, to cover additional costs of running the site.
Both guest and host service fees are calculated from the reservation subtotal. The subtotal is the complete price of a reservation, before service fees have been added. It is calculated from the listing price settings.
Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction involved, VAT on the service fees may be included as an additional amount over and above the total 3.75% service fee. The service fee presented to you on our website will include such VAT, when applicable.
You can see the amount of the service fee in your host confirmation. You can do this by clicking on the reservation code in your Transaction History and also when you receive a reservation request by clicking on the link next to the subtotal.
What are guest service fees?
AFLOATBNB.COM charges guests a 12% service fee every time a reservation is made, for the use of our online platform. This service fee is added to the guests payment. It covers a part of the cost of running the site and allows us to offer better customer service. We also charge hosts a host service fee to cover costs also.
Both guest and host service fees are calculated from the reservation subtotal. The subtotal is the complete price of a reservation, before service fees have been added and it is calculated from the listing's price settings.
After entering the exact dates and number of guests for a reservation, guests will see the service fee included or quoted on a listing’s page. The exact fee is located on the checkout page, before submitting a reservation request and on any guest billing receipt.
Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction involved, VAT on the service fees may be included as an additional amount over and above the total 12%service fee. The service fee presented to you on our website will include such VAT when applicable. Please note that accommodation fees are charged to the guest directly by the host. These may or may not contain local taxes, including VAT, depending on the business status and local regulations applicable to the host.
If a reservation request is retracted, expires or is declined then we DO NOT charge a service fee. If a guest however cancels a reservation, the service fee is non-refundable. If a guest chooses to be refunded after a host cancellation, the service fee is also refunded. If a reservation is altered, the services fee adjusts according to the new subtotal.
Transaction fees are billed in the users of AFLOATBNB.COM portal. AFLOATBNB.COM offer users different transaction methods. Slower transactions generally mean lower transaction fees. Since we offer different methods, we find it fairer that the users pay accordingly.

1.1 The following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply to the use of the platform www.varoya.com. Varoya provides you (as 'User') its services, especially the use of the database, based on these user conditions.
1.4 Differing business conditions of the users are not valid, even if varoya does not contradict individual cases.
2.1 The website www.varoya.com is an online platform. Natural or legal persons and business partnerships that have registered, and whose registration has been confirmed by varoya (hereinafter: 'User'), can provide and rent apartments, rooms or other accommodations ('accommodation'). The conclusion of the user contract is free.
2.2 Varoya provides a website platform for posting content and offers, making contacts, and preparing and concluding rental contracts. Rental contracts come to stand exclusively between the offering user (“provider”) and the renting user (“renter”). Varoya itself does not provide its own accommodations and does not accept any offers. Varoya is not a party in the contract concluded between the users on the website. Varoya is entitled to act with power to contract on behalf of the provider and arranges accommodation between renter and provider, however does not fulfill any obligations derived from the contractual relationship between renter and provider. The fulfillment of the contracts concluded between users on the website is solely between users.
2.3 Rental offers and content posted by users on the website will not be verified by varoya as to their legality, accuracy or completeness and do not represent the views of varoya. Varoya is not responsible for third party offerings and content.
3.1 The use of varoya's services requires that the user has previously registered. Registration is free and requires that the user accept the GTC. By receiving a confirmation e-mail at the user-specified e-mail address by varoya, a contract between varoya and the user to use varoya's services ('user contract') comes to stand. There is no legal right to conclude such a user contract.
3.2 Registration is allowed only to unrestricted, legal capacity natural persons, legal persons and partnerships. Minors may not register with varoya. The registration of a legal person or partnership may be made only by an authorized natural person who must be named. During the registration, only individuals may be listed as the owner of the user account (i.e. no married couples or families).
3.3 During the registration, the user is obligated to provide accurate, up-to-date and complete information as required by the registration form, especially first and last name, current address (a PO Box is not acceptable), a valid e-mail address and, where appropriate, to state the name of the company and an authorized representative. The data must be up-to-date and correct at all times. Multiple registrations under different member names are prohibited. During registration the user chooses a user ID and password. The member name may not be an e-mail or Internet address, may not be damaging to the names, trademarks or rights of others, nor offend against good manners. After registration, the user receives a password and a name assigned to his membership account.
3.4 Legal transaction declarations (e.g. confirmation messages, changes to the GTC) may be sent to user by e-mail.
4.1 The user is obligated to maintain up-to-date and accurate information in his membership accounts, and in the event of a change, to correct it immediately. A user account is not transferable and not inheritable.
4.2 The user is obligated to ensure that his membership account is only used by himself and is obligated for this purpose to keep his password secret.
4.3 Users are liable for all activities that are carried out while their member account is used. The user is not liable if he was not responsible for the misuse of his membership account as long as the existing duty of care was not violated.
4.4 Once the user is aware that third parties have access to his member account or have otherwise gained access to his member's account, he shall forthwith notify varoya. Varoya shall then block the member's account until the situation has been clarified. The expenses incurred to the account until it was blocked shall be paid by the user, unless disclosure of the access data is due to a fault of varoya.
4.5 Varoya only carries out a very limited review of registration data, as the identification of people in the Internet is only very restrictedly possible. Consequently, despite various security precautions, it is not possible to exclude that incorrect data was provided for a user account. Each user has to convince himself of the identity of his contractual party.
4.6 Users are obligated to set their systems and programs in connection with the use of varoya's services so that neither the security, integrity or the availability of systems set up by varoya to provide their services, are affected. Users may not block varoya generated content, rewrite, modify or in any way interfere with varoya's services. Varoya has the right to set up necessary measures (such as blocking access) that are necessary to ensure the system integrity of varoya's systems or third parties.
4.7 Users are responsible to archive on a storage medium independent of varoya the visible information on the website and information stored by varoya, which they deem necessary for their own purposes of evidence, accounting, etc.
5.1 The user is responsible that the accommodation he offers is described correctly and completely. He must at least provide the information in the mandatory fields in varoya, so that the accommodation and the offer is adequately described. In addition, it is up to the provider to request additional conditions, such as a deposit amount, the cost of cleaning, the possibility of canceling, etc. The various, contractual cancellation policies can be found at the following cancellation policies.
5.2 Users are obligated to comply with applicable laws when using the website. Varoya therefore prohibits, for example, to offer accommodations, whose offer and/or application violates statutory provisions, infringes on the rights of third parties or offends against good manners.
5.3 It is the sole responsibility of each user to ensure that his offers are legal and do not infringe on the rights of third parties.
5.4 Users may not use addresses, contact details and e-mail addresses, which they have obtained through the use of the site for any purpose other than for the pre-contractual and contractual communication. It is especially forbidden to sell this data or to use it to send advertising, unless the user in question has expressly agreed in advance.
5.5 The website content stored by varoya may not be copied or distributed without prior consent of the respective owners, or otherwise used or reproduced. This also applies to copying in the way of search engine technologies or via other automatic mechanisms.
6.1 The user is soley responsible for offers and content, such as images, that he uploads on the website or otherwise makes publicly available or distributes. These may not be injurious to the rights of third parties, in particular, injure personality rights or copyrights of third parties.
6.2 The user exempts varoya from all third party claims on the first request, which are made applicable against varoya on the basis of content, violation of GTC or other conduct for which the user is responsible. The liability exemption includes reasonable legal fees and court costs
By submitting content (text and images), the user grants varoya the following non-exclusive, transferable, temporally and spatially unlimited rights (including the right to grant sub-licenses) to the posted content, for the purpose of the offering varoya services:
(a) the archival and database rights, i.e. the right to archive the content in any form, and in particular to digitize it for database entry and save it on all known storage media and on any medium, and to connect it other work or work parts;
(b) the reproduction and distribution rights and the right to public playing, i.e. the right to store the content as desired, to copy and to make it available or disseminate it in full or in part in electronic or other media (such as Internet, newspapers, magazines);
(c) the legal process, i.e. the right to edit the content as desired, to change and in particular to reduce, to complement and link with other websites, and also prepare for use on mobile devices.
8.1 The right of users to use the website exists only in the context of the current state of the technology. Varoya temporarily restricts use if this is necessary regarding safety, integrity, capacity limitations or to the implementation of technical measures, and also when such restrictions serve to improve performance of the services used (maintenance). The legitimate interests of users are acknowledged by varoya, for example, by communicating this information in advance. varoya's regulated liability, applicable in section 15, remains hereby unaffected.
8.2 Varoya reserves the right to change the arrangement of the website, and takes users' legitimate interest into reasonable consideration.
9.1 If a provider posts an accommodation on the varoya website, this is a non-binding invitation to bid on the proposed property with the specified conditions (rent, etc.) and will conclude with a rental contract. The renter can click the appropriate button to make a binding offer for conclusion of a rental contract by a certain date. The contract stands if the provider accepts the offer within 24 hours in appropraite varoya procedure. If the provider does not accept the renter's offer within 24 hours, he is no longer bound by this bid.
9.2 If a contract is concluded between users, varoya notifies the contract partners accordingly by sending an appropriate confirmation email. Varoya shall also communicate the necessary contract data, especially the duration use and total price. The total price consists of the price of the accommodation and varoya's commission. The current commission fees are available at fees. The settlement of agreed upon conditions such as a safety deposit or cleaning costs is made directly between users.
9.3 The renter then pays the total cost. Varoya collects this money from the renter on behalf of the provider. Payment is to be made by bank transfer, credit card or PayPal, and upon conclusion of the rental contract, will be debited and kept by varoya in a non-interest bearing escrow account for the benefit of the provider. Should the amount receivable not be paid, the user must reimburse varoya for the additional costs to the extent that it is his failure. Providers are not allowed to add additional costs or fees, which were not specified in the tendered price, and then demand these from the renter.
9.4 The registration as a user of varoya is free. Varoya does not charge for listing offers. Should a rental contract be concluded between a provider user and a renter user as result of provable service or brokering, which took place on the varoya website, the provider is to pay varoya a processing fee. The current processing fees are available at the cancellation policies page.
9.5 The commission is due immediately upon conclusion of the rental contract, and can be paid by the user by bank transfer, credit card or PayPal. The total amount will debited by varoya together with the escrow administered rental fee. Should the debt recovery fail, the user must reimburse varoya for the additional costs incurred to the extent that it is his failure.
9.6 Users may only set off due and/or future claims of varoya commissions unless these claims are legally established or undisputed. The assignment of claims to third parties is not possible.
9.7 Users are forbidden to bypass varoya's commission and fee structure.
9.8 Varoya can change the rate of commission at any time. Varoya will advise users by e-mail of any such changes taking effect on the website in due time. The change is effective for any provably obtained or brokered rental contracts, and unless the user objects within four weeks, varoya shall expressly point out the dissemination of amendment to user.
9.9 The user herewith assigns varoya to pay the rental price, minus the commission of varoya, 24 hours after beginning of the stay in the provider's rented property. The renter has the right to revoke the transfer to varoya should the accommodation not have been left to him in the contractual state. In this case, the revocation is to be sent in due time by email to custom support. The timeliness of receipt by varoya is significant.
9.10 The provider is soley responsible for the proper payment of applicable taxes.
9.11 Providers must be able to let the rented property to the renter for the agreed time period. For this purpose, providers and renters will agree on the necessary arrangements (location, time, etc.) soon after the conclusion of the contract.
9.12 The accommodation description and the images used may not infringe on the rights of third parties, and must relate strictly to the accommodation offered. Advertising that does not refer to the accommodation on offer is prohibited.
9.13 The users are forbidden to add links to other content in their offers.
9.14 In the event of an agreed cancellation option, the current, contracted conditions under cancelletion policies shall apply.
10.1 The website allows users to evaluate each other after renting an accommodation. The evaluations shall provide a meaningful index of users' trustworthiness. The evaluations are not reviewed by varoya and may be inaccurate or misleading
10.2 The user is obligated to only make truthful statements in his evaluaiton and to comply with the law. The views expressed by him may not injure third party rights, nor, in particular, infringe on personality rights. They must be objective and must not contain defamatory criticism
10.3 Any use of the evaluation system contrary to the purpose of the evaluation system is prohibited. It is specifically prohibited for users to write evaluations about themselves or to arrange for third parties to incorporate circumstances into evaluations that are unrelated to the settlement of the underlying contracts or evaluations for any other purpose than the trade on the website.
10.4 Varoya does not intervene in the evaulation system. Evaluations are neither altered nor removed by varoya. Evaluations cannot be altered after they have been posted. They are stored permanently in the feedback profile of a user, and can be viewed by all users. Users can be held legally responsible for the damage to the reputation of another user if feedback contains vulgar, obscene, racist, not permissable for minors or criminally offensive comments. Since varoya niether censors nor reviews evaluations for accuracy, varoya cannot be held legally responsible for posted comments, even if those comments are defamatory.
10.5 Should there be an abuse of the evaluations by a user, varoya has the exceptional right to remove the evaluation, and take measures stated in section 14. This is especially true if: the evaluation must be removed because of an enforceable court decision against those who have created the post; the comment contains vulgar, obscene, racist, not permissable for minors, or criminally offensive remarks; the evaluation contains another member's personal information, which includes, for example, name, address, phone number or e-mail address; the evaluation contains comments that indicate that law enforcement agencies or varoya have initiated investigations; the evaluation contains links or scripts; if a user has inadvertently posted a negative evaluation to a user, has however already fixed this error and assigned the same evaluation to the correct user; the evaluation has been made by a person who was at the time of the transaction or posting the evaluation was not authorized. The evaluation is from users whose members account were blocked by varoya within 90 days of registration. For member accounts that have been blocked, for example, due to non-payment of a commission or for situations where the users are given an opportunity to solve the problem and the member account is reinstated, the evaluation can not be removed.
10.6 If both parties agree, they can retract the posted evaluation online. The evaluation post will be removed and does not enter into account's evaluation profile. The comment will be retained and expanded to include a reference to the withdrawal.
11.1 The user contract runs for an indefinite period of ti
11.2 The user may terminate the user contract at any time without notice. A termination notice to varoya in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) is sufficient. User's already exisiting proven or brokered rental contracts with other users remain unaffected by the termination of the agreement. Same applies for commission claims already due.
11.3 Varoya may terminate the user contract with a period of two weeks. The right to block remains hereof unaffected.
11.4 The right to terminate for just cause, as well as the individually agreed upon termination rights of the user remain hereof unaffected. Just cause for varoya exists in particular if: the user does not comply with a considerable payment obligation in whole or in part, despite a reminder with an appropriate deadline having been sent to the user-specified e-mail address; the user violates his obligations in this user contract, and despite a reminder with a timely deadline, does not take remedial action. A reminder is not needed if this is deemed not promising or the breach is so serious, or holding the contract is so restrictive as to be unreasonable for varoya. Thereby, a serious breach is assumed when regular violations of the obligations under articles 5 and 6 ("user requirements") occur. Furthermore, the severity of the offense can also result from the fact that the user has already been warned several times due to a comparable violation; the user contradicts changes according to the GTC in articles 1.3 and 9.8; is required by the law, a court or an authority shows that the use of the site can no longer be offered in this form varoya terminates its website or its buisness; insolvency proceedings are opened against user's assets.
12.1 If there is sufficient indication that a user culpably breached legal provisions, rights of third parties or GTC, or if varoya otherwise has a legitimate interest, in particular to protect members from fradulent activities, varoya can, pending a conditional cancellation, take one or more of the following actions: warn the user; delete user's offers or other content; restrict user's use of website; temporarily or permanently exclude (block) user from website.
12.2 Varoya takes the legitimate interests of the user in quesiton into consideration when choosing these measures.
12.3 Rental contracts, which have already been concluded between the user and other users, are not affected by deletion of an offer. Same applies to claims already due commission. If, an offer that was not accepted by a user, is deleted by varoya no effective rental contract is concluded.
12.4 Varoya has the right to permanantly exclude (block) a user from using the website in each of the following cases. In as far as it is reasonable, the user is given prior notification by varoya so that he has the opportunity to dispel suspicion or seek help. If a previous warning is not reasonable, for example, because the exclusion is necessary to prevent possible damage at varoya or other media and their users, the user will immediately be informed by varoya, and then be given the opportunity to comment and receive help. The right to block a user exists when: in the evaluation system according to article 10, repeated negative evaluations is received and the blocking is necessary to safeguard the interests of other market participants; there is false contact inforration in a member ccount, in particular, a false or invalid e-mail address; a member account is transferred to another party; user's acommodations and/or furnishings are significantly damaged, destroyed, stolen, etc.; There is good cause due to comparable risk and responsibility of the user.
12.5 Once a user has been permanently blocked by varoya, he is not entitled to re-establishment of the blocked user account or the evaluation profile. The user may not use the website with any other member accounts nor re-register.
13.1 Varoya is not liable for the behavior of users. In particular, varoya shall not be liable for the fulfilling of obligations under the rental contracts concluded between the users, and therefore not for the contractual service provisions in these contracts and/or lease of a responsible party for damages of any kind.
13.2 Varoya has unlimited liability for intent and gross negligence. In the case of slight negligent breach of a primary obligation, or a secondary obligation, which jeopardizes the purpose of the contract, or makes possible the proper execution of the contract in the first place, and compliance with which the customer should be familiar (essential accessory obligation), the liability of varoya is limited to typical, foreseeable damages at contract conclusion.
13.3 varoya is not liable for the slight negligent breach of accessory obligations, which are not essential accessory obligations found in the mentioned clause 14.2.
13.4 The abovementioned exclusions of liability do not apply to fraudulent concealment or acceptance of a guarantee of quality, or for the liability of claims on the basis of product liability and for damages resulting from injury to life, body and health. A change in the burden of proof to the detriment of the user is not hereby connected.
13.5 Subject to article 13.2, varoya shall only be liable for the recovery of data only if the user regularly and with caution made backup copies, which were kept in a safe place, and it is ensured that the data can be reconstructed from these backups at a reasonable cost. In this case, the user carries the burden of proof. Any further liability for data loss is excluded.
13.6 With the exception of claims arising from tort liability, user's claims for compensation, for which liability is limited according to this article, fall under the statue of limitations clause one year from the statutory limitation period.
13.7 In as far varoya's liability is excluded or limited, same also applies to the personal liability of its employees, workers and other staff and vicarious agents
14.1 The headings in this contract are for convenience only and are not to be considered in the construction of the contract.
14.2 Varoya has the right to transfer its rights and obligations in this contract in whole or part to a third party.
14.3 This contract shall be governed exclusively by the substantive laws in Denmark with the exception of the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
14.4 Should any individual provision of these GTC be or become wholey or partially invalid, the remaining GTC's are still valid. In the event of such invalidity, the parties will replace the invalid provision with a similar, legally binding substitute provision. Same applies in the case of a regulatory gap.
14.5 All statements within the context of the concluding a user contract must be sent in writing or by e-mail to varoya. The postal address and e-mail address of a user must be those that are specified as current contact data in the user's member account.
