Searching for, booking, or using Terms of Service
Last Updated: May 10th, 2023
Thank you for using Zymzo!
These Terms of Service for all Users (“Terms”) are a binding legal agreement between you and Zymzo software provider that govern your right to use the websites, applications, and other offerings from Zymzo (collectively, the “Zymzo System”). When used in these Terms, “Zymzo,” “we,” “us,” or “our” refers to the Zymzo entity set out on Schedule 1 with whom you are contracting.
The Zymzo System offers an online venue that enables users (“Members”) to pay for the city tax, service fee, parking, late check-out, early check-in, late check-in and book other services of the Host (“Hosts”). Members who search for, book, or use services are “Guests.” Hosts offer a variety of services through Zymzo (collectively, “Host Services”). Be aware that credit card is needed to be able to finish the check-in (paying for city tax, service fee and security deposit).
You must fill in the guests’ details to access the reserved accommodation and use many features of the Zymzo System. Keep your account information accurate. As the provider of the Zymzo System, Zymzo does not own, control, offer or manage any Host Services, or tourism services. Zymzo is not a party to the between Hosts and Guests, nor is Zymzo a real estate owner.
- Our Mission.
Our mission is to create a system, where you can easily find all the information needed after making reservation of one of the properties we’re software provider for. If you have questions, just message the Host via reservation channel where you made a reservation. You can also write us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Making reservation on Zymzo.
- Making reservation
When you make a reservation of a room or apartment (collectively “ Accommodation ”), you are agreeing to pay all charges for your reservation including the city tax, Zymzo service fee, parking (if needed), extra cleaning (if needed) etc.. When you receive the check-in confirmation, the booked property’s details (a “How To“) will unlock on THE DAY OF YOUR ARRIVAL, at your check-in time. It is your responsibility to read and understand these rules, standards, policies, and requirements prior to reservation. Be aware that Zymzo is a software provider and will do everything to make your stay better and easier, but it can only help to improve your stay by informing the rental manager that is hosting or co-hosting your reserved property.
- Late-check-out and number of Guests fee.
If you stay past checkout, you will be charged with security deposit – the amount is defined by your property’s rental manager. You may see the security deposit amount on the reservation. Host and co-host have the right to make you leave in a manner consistent with applicable law, including by imposing reasonable overstay penalties.Double-check the number of guests on the reservation. You may not exceed the number of guests that you made the reservation for and if you do so, you will be charged a fee per person per night – an extra guest fee (this fee is specified by a property’s host), city tax, service fee, plus security deposit. If this should happen and there is not enough bedding available at the time of your arrival, we will do our best to provide you with extra bedding within 24h of your arrival. Most importantly, you may not exceed the maximum number of guests that the accommodation can host. If you do so, you will be charged with a penalty of 1000€ because of breaching legal and house rules.In case you do not leave the property until the check-out time (for the check-out time please see your reservation) and you didn’t pay for late check-out (check the services in our app) upfront, the security deposit is taken, plus you must pay for the late checkout and leave the property until noon. If you do not leave until noon, we charge you an extra day plus you must immediately leave the property.
- Reservations for Other Host Services.
Other Host’s or software provider’s Services (“Services”) may be chosen and paid via Zymzo System. You are responsible to follow all the instructions given in the Services and How to section.
- Cancellations, Refunds and Modifications.
- Cancellations and Refunds. In general, if you cancel your paid Services (such as Zymzo Service fee, parking, tourist tax etc.) the amount refunded to you is determined by the cancellation policy that applies to your reservation. Be aware, that the free cancellation period is the same as it is for the reservation of the property made via the reservation channel. For the refund, the appeal must be sent a maximum of 24 hours after your departure via reservation channel messages.
- Reservation Modifications.
Hosts and Guests are responsible for any reservation modifications they agree to make via the Zymzo System or direct Zymzo customer service to make on their behalf (“Reservation Modifications“) and agree to pay any additional amounts, fees, or taxes associated with any Reservation Modification.
- Your Responsibilities.
You are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you invite to join or provide access to any Accommodation or Experience. For example, this means: (i) you are responsible for leaving an Accommodation (and related personal property) in the condition it was in when you arrived, (ii) you are responsible for paying all Damage Claim amounts necessary to cover damage that you, your guest(s), or your pet(s) cause to an Accommodation, and (iii) you must act with integrity, treat others with respect and comply with applicable laws at all times. If you are making a reservation for an additional guest who is a minor or if you bring a minor to a Host Service, you must be legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor and you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor.
Zymzo may charge fees (and applicable Taxes) to Guests for the right to use the Zymzo System. Any applicable fees are disclosed to Guests before making a reservation via the reservation channel.
