How the portal and services work
Algarrental.com only controls the contents of the listings which do not comply the Terms and Conditions. Algarrental.com is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all listings and accommodations.
Algarrental.com currently charge fees for creating listings: 180days €69.90.-, 365days €99.90.- and 730days €149.90.- (Prices per listing, TAX inc.). To create a listing, you are requested a variety of information about the accommodation or service to be listed, including the location, capacity, features, availability, pricing/rates and house rules. In order to be featured in Listings on the portal, all accommodations must have valid physical addresses. Inserting personal information in the listings is not allowed (email, phone number, bank account number, names and links to external portals). These will be validated and made publicly available via the portal.
When listing accommodation or service on Algarrental.com, you accept and agree that it may be used on the different communication channels used by the portal (recommended accommodation, social media and other means of communication within our reach).
You understand and agree that once a guest requests a booking of your accommodation, you cannot ask to pay a higher price than the one advertised according to the period indicated in the booking request. If a guest requests a booking of your accommodation or service and stays at your accommodation or using your service, any agreement will be concluded between both parties (you and the guest) and Algarrental.com is not a party thereto. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all listings that you post. You acknowledge and agree that, as a host, you are solely responsible for the compliance with any and all legal requirements associated to vacation rentals. Algarrental.com has the right to at any time and without prior notice, remove or disable access to any listing for any reason, including listings that Algarrental.com, in its sole discretion, consider objectionable, for any reason, as a violation of these Terms and Conditions, or otherwise detrimental to the portal.
Bookings for Hosts
If you are a Host and a booking is requested for your accommodation or service via the portal, you will be asked to confirm or reject the booking request within the Booking Request Period (48 hours). Otherwise, the booking request will automatically be cancelled. As a Host, by confirming a booking request you are the only person responsible for it and for the information published on your listing (such as price, features, photos, availability, etc), once Algarrental.com disclaims its consequences. When a booking is requested via the portal, you are informed of the first and last name of the guest who has requested the booking and the period for which they intend to make the booking. If, in a 7 days period, you don't respond to three or more booking requests or don't answer/reply to any of the contact attempts made by Algarrental.com, your listing will automatically be removed.
Booking Cancellations for Hosts
If a Host cancels a booking, Algarrental.com may apply penalties or consequences to the Host or their listing, including (i) publishing an automatic review on the listing indicating that a booking was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for the listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled booking, or (iii) reduce the rating given to the Host’s profile. As a Host, if, after the payment of the Service Fee, you cancel a reservation or don’t make contact with the respective Guest, you are solely responsible for the consequences that may arise and your listings and profile will permanently be blocked. In order for you to regain access to your account and to advertise your properties on our portal, you will have to pay back the Service Fee the Guest has paid.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations and tax obligations that may be imposed for the use of the portal, services and content published by you. In connection with your use of the portal you agree that you will not:
• Contact a Guest for any purpose other than asking a question related to the booking or the use of the accommodation;
• "Stalk" or harass any other user of our portal or store any personally identifiable information about any other user other than for purposes of transacting as a Algarrental.com Host or Guest;
• Offer, as a Host, any accommodation that you do not yourself own or have permission to rent or advertise;
• Use the portal to find a Guest, and then complete a booking of an accommodation independent of the portal;
• As a Host, submit any listings with false or misleading price information, or submit any listing with a price that you do not want to honour;;
