In consideration for providing the Platform, we will charge the service fees (including any third party payment processing fees) as set out on the Platform (Rent My Berth Service Fee). To the extent permitted by law, the Rent My Berth Service Fee is non-refundable, includes the payment processing fee, and will be included in the Listing Fees.

If you are a Host, you appoint us as your limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Listing Fees from the relevant Guest.

Your Membership may begin with a free trial. The free trial period of your Membership will last for the period specified on the Platform. We determine free trial eligibility in our sole discretion and we may limit eligibility to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and suspend your Account at any time in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. If you do not cancel during the free trial period, we will charge your chosen payment method for the Membership you have chosen and its corresponding membership fee (Membership Fee) on the day your free trial ends (Payment Date). If you do not pay the Membership Fee at the end of the free trial period, your access to the Platform and access to Membership benefits will finish at the end of the free trial. The date you make payment (Payment Date), your Membership will start and the free trial will end.

To the extent permitted by law, the Membership Fee is non-refundable and non-cancellable once paid.

The Membership Fee will be charged upfront on a monthly basis for month to month Memberships and upfront on a yearly basis for annual Memberships on the calendar day corresponding to when you created your Account or your free trial ends (Payment Date). In some cases, your Payment Date may change, for example, if payment is unable to be processed or if your Membership began on a day not contained in a given month.

Month to month Memberships automatically continue until cancelled in accordance with the cancellation clause below.

If you do not cancel your annual Membership in accordance with the cancellation clause below, it will be renewed for another year at the end of your current Membership term. We will notify you 30 days prior to the end of the current Membership term.

We may modify our Memberships and the Membership Fees from time to time. For month to month Memberships, any price changes will apply to you no earlier than 30 days following notice to you. For annual Memberships, the price changes will apply to you no earlier than the start of your renewed Membership. The notice may be provided at any time via email or via notification to your Account. If you do not agree to the price change, you may cancel your Membership in accordance with the cancellation clause below.

Upgrading or downgrading your Membership

You may upgrade or downgrade your Membership to another tier at any time in the Account page / manage Memberships (or similar) or by sending us an email. The payment method linked to your Account will automatically be charged the Membership Fee for your new Membership tier on the Payment Date on which the upgrade or downgrade becomes effective.

The upgrade or downgrade will apply to the next month if you upgrade or downgrade your Membership at least 5 business days before the next Payment Date.

If you upgrade or downgrade less than 5 business days before the next Payment Date, the upgrade or downgrade will become effective for the following month. 

If your need to upgrade is urgent, please send us an email and we may upgrade your Membership prior to the Payment Date on which the upgrade was due to become effective. We may organise for the payment method linked to your Account to be charged the pro-rata Membership Fee for your new Membership tier.

Cancelling Memberships

You may cancel your Membership at any time in the Account page / manage Memberships (or similar) section of your Account settings unless a Booking is in place.

The cancellation will apply to the next month for month to month Memberships or the next year for annual Memberships if you cancel your Membership at least 5 business days before the next Payment Date. 

If you cancel your Membership less than 5 business days before the next Payment Date, you will be charged the Membership Fee on the next Payment Date and the cancellation will become effective for the following month for month to month Memberships or the next year for annual Memberships.

General 

We may pre-authorise or charge your payment method for a nominal amount to verify the payment method. 

We provide a number of payment methods on the Platform, including our third party payment processors. The payment method you choose may be subject to additional terms and conditions imposed by the applicable third party payment processor. By making payment through a third party payment processor, you accept the applicable terms and conditions.

We may from time to time issue promotional discount codes for the Platform. To claim the discount as a Guest, you must enter the promotional discount code at the time of submitting your Booking Request through the Platform. The conditions of use relating to promotional discount codes will be specified on the Platform at the time they are issued. 

In the absence of fraud or mistake, all payments made are final.

Refunds and Cancellation Policy

The cancellation or refund of any services ordered on this Platform is strictly a matter between the relevant Guest and Host. The terms and conditions agreed to between the Host and the Guest must be set out clearly in the relevant Booking Request.

For disputes between Guests and Hosts, we encourage Parties to attempt to resolve disputes (including claims for returns or refunds) with the other Party directly and in good faith, either on the Platform or through external communication methods. In the event that a dispute cannot be resolved through these means, the Parties will accept the findings of Rent My Berth as the final determination in relation to the dispute. 

Identify verification

If we choose to conduct identity verification or background checks on any Guest or Host, to the extent permitted by law, we disclaim all warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Guest or Host or guarantee that a Guest or Host will not engage in misconduct in the future. Any verification of Hosts on the Platform is not an endorsement or recommendation that the Host is trustworthy or suitable. You should do your own due diligence before using a Host’s services/buying goods from a Host.

We may offer you the option of verifying your identity and/or validating your Account using a third party verification service (Third Party ID Service).

Where you have elected to verify your identity under this clause, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) we may contact, connect to or otherwise liaise with Third Party ID Services to validate your identity and information (Identity Check); and (b) Third Party ID Services may provide us with your personal information or sensitive information, and you consent to us receiving and using this information to enable us to perform an Identity Check; and (3) you will be charged a non-refundable fee for the Identity Check (as set out on the Platform), and we will be under no obligation to perform the Identity Check until the relevant fee has been paid to us, in accordance with the requirements specified on the Platform and these Terms.  

Following a successful Identity Check, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) we may permit you to use verification signs, icons or badges in connection with your Account to indicate that a successful Identity Check has been performed (Verification Icon); and (b) a Verification Icon may only be used by the individual or business for whom the relevant Identity Check has been successfully performed and the relevant Verification Icon has been issued, and then, only where that individual is directly providing the relevant goods or services. 

You acknowledge and agree that: (a) the Identity Check and the issuance of a Verification Icon may not be fully accurate, as they are dependent on the information provided by the relevant individual or business and/or information or checks performed by third parties; and (b) you should not rely on the Identity Checks or the Verification Icons, and you should make your own inquiries as to the accuracy, legitimacy, validity, credibility or authenticity of any users of the Platform.
