We will then - free of charge - provide you with an accurate and comprehensive house description with attractive professional photos. Your holiday home will then be published as soon as possible on our own website and at the same time on those of our more than 2,000 partners.

How do I put my accommodation up for rent?

After we approve your registration (How to join), you’ll receive instructions on how to offer your vacation home up for rent on our website. Once you do this, we will promote your vacation home on more than 2.000 booking sites, such as Booking.com, HomeAway and Airbnb, where millions of potential guests get to see it. After a successful registration, you’ll get access to your personal accommodation-dashboard called ‘My Belvilla’. On this central hub you find all the information you need: calendars, prices, your personal online environment, rental administration, rental performance, guest experiences and more.

Here you can leave your email address for more information.

How can I upload photos of my vacation home?

During the registration process, we ask you to upload photos of your accommodation. This is an important step, because these photos give potential guests a first impression of your vacation home. These don’t have to be professional photos; pictures taken with your smartphone will do. You’d want to upload pictures that give guests a good idea of your accommodation, so it is recommended to add photos that show both the interior and exterior.

How do I update my property details?

Via your own personal dashboard called ‘My Belvilla’, you can update the details of your property simply and swiftly. My Belvilla is your central hub with all the information you need: calendars, prices, your personal online environment, rental administration, rental performance, guest experiences and more. Through this dashboard you can update this information, add photos and report damages.

When will I receive my payment?

You’ll receive the full rental amount (pricing) within two weeks prior to guest arrival. This means the full rental amount will be in your bank account before the guests walk through the door. In case of a last-minute booking, Belvilla will transfer the rental amount as quickly as possible. This way, you can always be sure of on-time payment. And if the booking gets cancelled you will be reimbursed up to 100%.

How much commission do I have to pay?

Already during the contract negotiations we agree on the margin that Belvilla asks for per booking. With this margin, we take care of all the services, services and promotion of your holiday home. This margin is included in the price that tenants see on the websites. The amount is paid by the guest. You do not receive any invoices or write-offs afterwards and therefore no hassle or unexpected amounts. It's all very clear.

Do I have to confirm every booking?

It is not necessary to confirm every reservation manually. When a guest books your accommodation, the reservation gets confirmed immediately and automatically. This way you don't have to check the requests from every potential guest.

What is Belvilla’s cancellation policy?

After a booking a guest can cancel free of charge within 16 working days. After this period and after receipt of payment, you are entitled to compensation as a homeowner. The shorter the cancellation before arrival, the higher the amount to be received by you. Incidentally, Belvilla will only make payment to you after the tenant's compensation has been received. Belvilla always tries to make a new booking for the same period. If this is successful, you will receive the rent for this booking. If you are unable to do so, you are entitled to compensation of up to 100% of the total rent.

What happens when a guest doesn’t show up?

Of course it is very annoying that you have prepared the house completely, but with us you never have to worry about the rent. After all, we always proceed to pay the rent before the guest stays in your holiday home. One of the advantages of renting out through Belvilla!

What can I do when a guest damages my home?

It is important to us that you feel safe renting out your vacation home. For this reason, guests are required to take out a damage insurance policy for each booking. This means your property is automatically insured up to €10,000 in the event a guest damages your cottage. You can report damages via your personal My Belvilla dashboard or you can contact us personally.

Here you can leave your email address.

Belvilla also offers free insurance for vacation homeowners. This insurance is in addition to your own holiday home insurance and it covers sudden and unforeseen damages that may occur during a rental period. These damages may not be covered by your own holiday home insurance. Think of: rental losses, damages in or of the vacation home and vandalism, among others.
