HOW HOSTING WORKS

Sign up to host

Start by creating your listing. It’s like a profile page for your place.

 

What’s in a listing?

You’ll fill out a description, take and upload photos, and pick a price. Your listing helps guests get a sense of what your place is like.

 

Who can make a booking

You set the availability and house rules for your listing. Host controls and calendar settings can help make hosting easier.

 

We’re here to help

From getting your home ready and choosing a price, to understanding your responsibilities under local laws — we’ve got tools and resources for you.

Guests find your listing and they make a booking

You’ll get a reservation confirmation and a message from your guest.

 

Message your guests

Messaging online and via the app helps you get to know guests and answer any questions.

 

Plan for check-in

Some hosts meet guests in person to hand over a key, others provide a door code. You choose what works for you.

Welcome your guests

Some hosts offer breakfast, others are more hands-off. How you host is up to you.

 

Start with the basics

Most hosts clean all the spaces a guest can use, and provide essentials like clean sheets, towels, and toilet paper.

 

How do guests pay

Govacationshop handles all of the payments—you never have to deal directly with money. Guests get charged before they arrive.

 

How do you get paid

Some of the ways you can choose to get paid include Paypal, direct deposit, and international money wire. Your payment is automatically sent 24 hours after your guest checks in. Easy.

 

Earnings and fees

Listing your space on Govacationshop is free. Govacationshop takes a 2 % host service fee on each reservation.

 

What to charge

What you charge is up to you. After you sign up, you’ll get access to tools to set a price that factors in travel trends and prices for similar places.

We’ve got your back

Govacationshop plans ahead to protect you and your home.
