3. Service Fees

Guest Fees

After visiting our Site you may wish to book Accommodations with a Host. Once you have decided on the proper Host, you will be able to create a booking online. At the time of each booking you’ll be required to pay a deposit equal to 30% of the Total Fees plus any optional trip cancellation insurance you elect to purchase.  The balance is to be paid 60 days before your check in date. If a booking is made within 60 days of a check in date, the Total Fees will be due immediately. (“Total Fees” is equal to the Rental Fee plus any optional fees and applicable taxes.)

Rental Fees are calculated based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the rates per night provided by the Hosts, the duration of the booking, and the number of guests. Details for each rental are listed on the property’s page on the Site.

Guest Service Fee

Clanventure charges a flat $79 guest service fee for guests to use the site. This fee is non-refundable. Clanventure will provide Property Protection Program (Contents) for the duration of the guest’s stay in lieu of a security deposit in most cases, see below.

PROPERTY PROTECTION PROGRAM (CONTENTS).  Our properties and their contents are valuable and reasonable care should be taken with them during their rental. Our company, including the participating rental property homeowners we represent (“we”, “our”, “us”), is an additionally-insured participant in a Property Protection Program that reimburses certain costs for unintentional accidental damage to our properties during their rental occupancy. With our participation in this Program, except in certain circumstances, we do not collect and hold refundable security deposits.  We charge renters a non-refundable administrative fee to defer our costs for Program participation. If, during a renter’s occupancy, renter or a member of renter’s party or renter’s guest causes any damage to real or personal property of our rental property as a result of unintentional accidental acts or omissions, renter must notify our property management office at that time, and before check-out. For rentals that exceed the coverage limits of the Program, we may collect a supplementary refundable (net of any damage reimbursement) security deposit from renter upon check-in. Renter is liable to us for any damages caused by renter or a member of renter’s party or renter’s guest that are not reimbursed to us or exceed the maximum per-incident limit of our coverage, and the credit card on file and/or any collected security deposit will be charged. If renter wishes to pay a refundable (net of any damage reimbursement) security deposit, renter must notify us before check-in. Special or large event or pet deposits may be charged in certain situations. This Program is not offered or available for sale to renters.

Optional Fees

Optional Fees include trip cancellation and travel insurance, offered through a third party platform via RentalGuardian.com.

Travel insurance is for your protection and we strongly urge that you purchase this important coverage.

A Pet Fee will be charged for guests who wish to have their pets at the property. Please refer to the property page to insure that the home is pet-friendly and the amount of the Pet Fee charged.

Some Owners charge a Cleaning Fee. The fee charged can be found on the property page of each Accommodation. Please read the rental agreement provided by the Host and be aware of check out procedures and expectations. If extra cleaning is required, the Host may charge an Excessive Cleaning Fee to the credit card on file.

Host Booking Fees

Clanventure charges Hosts “Host Service Fee” every time a booking is made through our Site.

The total fees will be collected through a third-party processor (Stripe). The third-party processor will disburse the Rental Fees and Optional Fees (minus Clanventure’s Host Service Fees) to the Host as processed. All cancellations and refunds are the responsibility of the Host. Any refunds will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Changes in Fees

Clanventure reserves the right to change and alter any fees at any time.  If any changes to the fee or commission structure occur, Clanventure shall notify the affected party.  If a User or Host fails to accept such fee changes, the User or Host’s sole remedy is to terminate these Terms and to cease using the Site and Platform immediately. A Host or User’s continued use of the Site after such notification shall constitute acceptance by Host or User of the fee changes.
