Become a Host - How does it work ?

BookStMartin.com is a service published by La Petite Agence whose aim is to offer owners and vacationers a local reservation alternative with more advantageous service fees, this is the principle of Fairbooking

Joining BookStMartin is simple and offers you a unique opportunity to complete your reservation calendars while participating in a fair and innovative initiative on the island!

Yes, we only accept quality accommodation that meets all current safety standards. We reserve the right to refuse any accommodation that does not meet these criteria, ensuring our guests have a safe and comfortable experience.

Also, in order to respect the principle of “fairbooking”, we ask our owners to always ensure that their rates on BookStMartin are never higher than those advertised on other platforms (Airbnb, Booking.com, Abritel etc etc…).

Indeed, to ensure the authenticity and security of transactions, we require all our guests to provide documents attesting to the ownership of the goods.

For professionals, please contact us directly by email.

Membership :
Joining BookStMartin is free! There are no costs or cancellation fees. 

Service fees :
At BookStMartin, we are faithful to the principle of “fairbooking”, which translates into the application of service fees distributed equitably between hosts and travelers : 5% for hosts, 5% for travelers.

Please note that additional transaction fees, generated by Stripe/Paypal, will be billed to the traveler when finalizing the reservation. All fees are clearly stated during the booking process, respecting our commitment to a transparent and fair pricing policy.

When you set up your listing, you can choose your booking method:

– manually validate each reservation request.
– or activate the “instant reservation” option for automatic and rapid confirmation of reservations.

When a vacationer makes a reservation, you receive an email and you can manage the reservation from your dashboard. 

Cancellation policy for travelers are as follows:

  • More than 30 days before the stay: Free cancellation
  • Cancellation less than 30 days: no refund.

To ensure optimal service to our customers, we strongly advise you to keep your calendars up to date, to avoid having to refuse requests or cancel reservations.
We reserve the right to delete the accounts of owners who refuse or cancel reservations, except in cases of force majeure.

No, but we understand the importance of protecting your property. However, experience shows that incidents are rare and PNO insurance generally covers major problems. Small inconveniences are common hazards of seasonal rental.

If you wish to set up a deposit system, you will have to manage it directly with customers, respecting our ceiling:

– 300€ for apartments
– 500€ for villas

You can indicate this detail in the “Additional information” section of your listing.
