Here is how our canceling and refund policy work:

Vegan Hosts are expected to honor any reservation made according to The Vegan Stay Policies. However, we understand that there are extenuating circumstances that prevent them from following with such reservations. In that case, the host authorizes The Vegan Stay to refund guests 100% of the money they paid for services not delivered by the host.
The Vegan Stay strives to protect hosts from any adverse situations that might occur. For that, we allow hosts to set up their own rules for their stay, including: check-in and check-out times, mix/max nights a guest can stay, how far in the future guests can book and advance notice needed before booking.

First impressions matter, especially for a holiday destination. Your profile is the only opportunity you have to show the best your accommodation has to offer, so make sure it looks tempting!
- Pictures: Include high-quality pictures of your stay, covering the interior and exterior areas. If your stay is at a sanctuary, make sure to include pictures of the animals and the areas where the guests can interact with them!
- Bio: Write a friendly bio about yourself so that the guests can know a bit more about you before booking. They need to know that you’re trustworthy and get comfortable with you, so answer as many questions as possible.
- Verifications: You can add a number of verifications to your profile, including having your ID validated, to make it easy for other members to trust who you are.
