Is it better to set a seasonal, weekly or daily rate?

Everything depends on your preferences and location. You can choose a mix of rate policies depending on the season through the host back-end, by selecting different date ranges in the calendar. During our 1 Hour Expert Session, we can work with you to establish best rate policies according to your location, cottage set up & preferences to find a golden middle.

How do I determine the best rates to charge?

The rate is best based taking various factors into account, including other host listings in your area, seasonal nearby activities, neighbour considerations, cleaning policies & availability, preferred time spent on management & frequency of bookings you desire & more.

How do I ensure my cottage will be respected by guests?

Every listing has a section for specific house rules which guests are made aware of before they send a booking request - you can include rules such as no parties, pets, fireworks, or age restrictions. In responding to email inquiries & direct bookings, we suggest hosts sign separate rental agreements with each guest which will outline property damage penalties & processes.

How do I cancel my subscription?

If you upgrade from a free to a bronze or silver listing, your subscription will automatically renew on the date of your upgrade. If you wish to cancel future annual charges, you may do so from the subscription page on your account at any time. Once annual payment has been taken, no refunds will be issued.

How can I communicate with the guests?

You will receive an email from Royal Cottages with completed Guest’s form including the contact details the guest wishes to provide (email, mobile number, etc). Post receipt of email, you are responsible for following up/progressing with the inquiry with the guest. Platform communication, online booking & full booking management services to be released soon.

What should I do if something was broken/damaged at the cottage?

If you signed up for the Basic or Silver listing levels, you are responsible for communicating with guests regarding any damages, payments, and deposits. RC does not take damage deposits from guests in these plans. Please contact with guest directly to resolve (we suggest options such as guest provides service provider to fix or reimburses you for the damage).

Can I use my own booking agreements?

Under the current Basic, Bronze, and Silver listing levels on the platform, execution of booking contracts are the sole responsibility of the host directly with the guest. Royal Cottages takes no responsibility for enforcing host booking contract terms or conflict resolution at this stage.
