Preparing for the Listing (for Hosts).
1. On its Platform DIWERENT publishes each listing for a limited period of time, which cannot exceed 30 calendar days. However, DIWERENT reserves the right to remove or deny the posting of any property listing at any time at its sole discretion.
2. The period open for booking by the Guests on each property is twelve (12) calendar months. This term starts automatically on the date of activation of the Hosts’ Personal Account to enable the Hosts to set the prices and block certain dates while they prepare their Listings, and will end on the last day of a month determined by the system. When the Listing gets published on the Platform the period open for booking by the Guests will be reset and started over beginning from the date of publishing of the Listing and ending on the last day of the twelfth month starting from the month on which the date of publishing falls, and all the dates in the Hosts’ calendar before this date will become unavailable for booking.
3. The Host through his or her personal Account has the opportunity to block certain dates at the Property within the specified period. Certain dates can also be blocked automatically when the Host sells nights at the Property using other sources of sale, and these sold dates get synchronized with the Property’s calendar using the calendar synchronization feature available in the Personal Account. In either case, the number of available nights can not be less than 100.
4. The initial number of available nights that can be booked at each property throughout the available period, whether by one Guest or by many Guests, is 100. Dates blocked by the Host or by DIWERENT do not count in this number except for the cases described in paragraph 17.6 of these Ts&Cs.
5. If the number of nights available for booking at the Property gets less than the minimal number of nights permitted for booking at this Property, the Property can no longer get booked and the Listings ends automatically.
6. In case the Host has made certain dates at the Property unavailable for booking through manual blocking or calendar synchronization, and as a result the number of available dates at the Property together with the number of nights booked at the Property by Guests became less than 100, such blocked nights or nights booked through calendar synchronization will be automatically taken into account by the system for the purpose of application of the discounts. Blocked dates can be unblocked by the Host during the listing except for the dates taken into account for the purpose of application of discounts.
7. Until the Listing is approved by DIWERENT, the Host can change any parameters of the Listing.
8. When creating a Listing via the DIWERENT Platform, the Host must (i) provide complete and accurate information about his or her Host Services (such as description of the property, the location and availability), (ii) describe any shortcomings, restrictions (such as house rules, etc.). The Hosts are able (and are encouraged) to add specific rules, requirements and warnings to Guests to their Listing. This can include the Host’s Child Policy (stating whether children of certain age are allowed and are safe to stay at the property Pet Policy (stating whether animals are allowed and are safe to reside on the property, Contract Policy (stating whether the Host requires the Guests to sign a rental agreement upon their arrival), Policy for people with disabilities (stating whether the property is suitable for people with disabilities), etc.
9. The Hosts can place multiple Listings on the Platform. In any single Listing only one unique and clearly identifiable Property may be listed.
Price, discounts, final price (for Hosts).
1. The Host independently and on his/her own responsibility sets the initial prices, as well as the amount of discount corresponding to each stage of the process.
2. The initial prices for available dates can be changed only by DIWERENT according to the Host’s request at any time during the Listing. DIWERENT has no obligation to change the prices at the Host’s request if it believes that such change will harm or contradict with the principles of fair trade or the logic of price formation mechanism used by DIWERENT. In addition, DIWERENT shall have the right to stop the concerned Listing at its own discretion and shall not be held liable for doing so.
3. The initial price is the price from which all other prices are calculated for each subsequent discount level. Host can set different initial prices for different dates or periods within their Listing, such as base price and season prices.
4. The rental price depends on the total number of booked nights by all Guests on this property during the listing - its public and non-public offering.
5. The transition to a new price occurs when the number of nights booked by Guests and confirmed by a Host is greater than that set in the previous discount level. The information on the number of nights in each discount level is displayed on the property listing page.
6. After the Guest has requested a booking of the Host’s property, the Host may not demand that the Guest pay for his or her booking more than the sum specified in the booking request. However, the Host may charge the Guest for additional services provided to the Guest directly.
The number of nights in each of the 5 stages (for Hosts).
1. Every Listing has 5 stages. Transition to each next stage occurs when the initial price of the Property set by the Host reaches the next Discount level. Discounts pertaining to each Discount level are set by the Host upon creation of the Listing. On the first stage of the Listing, on Discount level 1, there is no applicable discount and the listed Property can only be booked at the Initial price per night. However, for every subsequent Discount level the Host is required to set the amount of discounts that will apply to all bookings made at the Property by the Guests as soon as the next Discount level will be reached.
2. A hundred nights that can be sold by the Host during the Listing are conventionally divided in five parts, each part containing twenty nights. Each next Discount level of the Property is reached as soon as a group of any twenty cumulative nights from all the available nights at the Property get booked by Guests or blocked by the Host or by DIWERENT in certain circumstances described in these Ts&Cs.
3. Twenty nights from each stage do not have to be adjacent, consecutive, booked by one Guest or booked within the same booking. All nights booked by any Guests (or blocked by the Host or by DIWERENT in certain cases) after the Property has moved to each next stage shall be counted together for the purpose of moving the Property to the next stage.
4. When the new Discount level is reached, the cost of the booking will be changed for all Guests who have already made bookings on this property or will make bookings during the Listing.
5. The final price is the price per night that was reached by the end of the placement of the Listing. It cannot be less than the targeted price reachable at Discount level 5 where the largest possible discount applies.
6. All Guests shall pay for their bookings based on the final price per night.
Hosts who intend to ask Guests for a security deposit must clearly indicate this in their Listings (“Security Deposit”). If a Host chooses to take a Security Deposit from a Guest, he or she may take it directly from a Guest at check-in and return it directly to a Guest at the departure time. DIWERENT is not responsible for payment or return of Security Deposits.
A Host may charge a cleaning fee that will be applied to each booking and will be added to the rental cost. A cleaning fee will be returned to a Guest in case his or her booking is cancelled whether by Host or by Guest before the Guest’s check-in. Return payment of cleaning fees can be subject to commissions as described in paragraph 32.2 of these Ts&Cs.
Hosts can optionally make a provision for the Instant Booking function. If a Host chooses to do so, Guests do not need to wait for confirmation from the Host when making a booking. Properties to which the Hosts applied Instant Booking will be booked instantly after Guests’ booking.
1. Hosts may (and are encouraged to) add photos, animated images or videos (collectively "Images") to their Listings made through the DIWERENT Platform. Such Images must accurately reflect the current quality and conditions of the properties listed by the Hosts. DIWERENT reserves the right to set and change at its own discretion parameters and requirements for the Images, such as a minimum or a maximum number of images per Listing, their format, size, resolution, etc.
2. Hosts can additionally set and adjust other parameters that may from time to time be available in their Member Account.
3. Once the Host has established all the necessary parameters through his or her personal Account, his/her proposal must then be sent for DIWERENT’s consideration.
4. Any conditions included in the Host’s Listings must not conflict with these Terms of Service.
5. Within 48 hours DIWERENT will determine the date when the Listing will be posted on the Platform and inform the Host.
6. DIWERENT reserves the right to refuse a placement for any Listing without explanation or compensation, or being liable therefor.
7. DIWERENT, in the event of discovery of inaccurate, false, unreliable information or other errors, may require that the Host make the appropriate changes.
Hosts represent and warrant that the Listings placed by them, the bookings of the Property by the Guests and their staying at the Property:
1. do not violate any of the Host’s agreements with third parties or rules Hosts are bound by, such as the homeowners' association, the association of co-owners of the apartment building, co-owners’ agreements or other agreements and rules;
2. comply with all applicable laws, including tax, immigration, housing and other legislation as well as other rules and regulations; and
3. satisfy all necessary permits, qualifications and registration requirements.
Hosts shall be responsible for both their own actions and omissions and actions and omissions of persons residing or otherwise present in the listed properties at their request or invitation except for the Guests and any third persons requested or invited by the Guests.
Host's Listing and Current prices.
1. Once DIWERENT approves a listing, it will place the Host’s Listing on the Platform, where it will be displayed in the appropriate location. At its own discretion DIWERENT can postpone posting of the approved Listing based on its experience, knowledge and understanding of the Platform’s operation in order to achieve better results for both Hosts and Guests.
2. Also, the Listing may be placed in other locations of the Platform, according to the algorithms used by DIWERENT.
3. The order in which the property is listed on the Platform is based on the system’s algorithms and no guarantee with regard to preferential position in the search results can be given.
4. During the listing period, all registered users can make bookings based on the conditions stated in the Listing.
5. DIWERENT has the right to post information about the property listing on any other websites in order to attract attention to it and to the Platform. In addition, DIWERENT reserves the right to show information about the property, including its Images, at the main page of the Platform, its previews, quick views, etc.
6. During the listing period, the Host may not make changes to the Listing except as described in paragraphs 17.6 and 18.2 of these Ts&Cs. The listed Property cannot be changed to another Property. However, certain nights available for booking can be blocked and made unavailable. Hosts must agree that by blocking the nights during the listing, these nights will affect the price changes for Guests (for more details, see the price section and its change).
7. The prices per night, once set by the Host, shall be converted into Singapore dollars and shall not change throughout the whole listing period other than by applying discounts in accordance with the DIWERENT algorithm as described in these Ts&Cs.
8. The Current price of the listed property shall be shown to all Platform users in certain places such as the catalogue, property page, booking page, certain section of the Members’ Personal Account (for example, the Trips section in Guest’s Personal Account), etc. The Current Price shown to the Platform users is the price per night set by the Host upon creation of the Listing and selected by DIWERENT as explained further. The Current price is indicative and shows the most common price for the Property at the time of creation of the Listing. The Current price is not necessarily the price at which Guests can make a booking. The booking price can be found in the Property’s calendar for each available date.
9. Since the prices set by the Host for different dates or periods within one Listing can differ, DIWERENT uses a special algorithm to determine what Current price will be shown to the Platform users. Determination of the Current price is performed only once at the time of opening of the Listing. The algorithm chooses one of the following to be shown as the Current price:
The lowest price per night set by the Host for the period available for booking;
Base price per night set by the Host for the period available for booking;
Price per night set by the Host for the largest number of nights available for booking at the Property.
1. DIWERENT, at its own discretion, may post the Host’s Listing in a Private Placement. While in Private Placement only registered users who have previously sent specific requests for villas which meet their stipulated requirements are able to view the property.
2. Private Placement may last for up to 10 days.
3. The Host will be notified by DIWERENT that the Host’s Listing has been placed in Private Placement.
End of listing (for Hosts).
1. Each property listing has an expiration date for its Listing. When this time comes, the property will no longer be available for viewing or booking. However, Guests who have confirmed bookings for the property with an ended listing will still be able to view it.
2. Property listings can be terminated early, if all the available dates are booked or if the number of available dates is less than the permitted minimal number of days for stay.
3. In exceptional circumstances the Host can also contact DIWERENT and ask to end the listing of their property. DIWERENT shall on case-by-case basis decide if the Listing can be ended before expiration of the listing period, if the confirmed bookings should be cancelled and if any other possible consequences should arise in connection with the Listing’s end. In case of early ending of the Host’s Listing DIWERENT will have the right to block up to 25 nights in the Host’s calendar and such blocked nights shall be included into calculation of the Listing’s Discount level.
4. If by the time the Listing closes the Host has unconfirmed bookings, the Host will be given 24 hours starting from the time when the booking request was made to confirm or decline the booking until the request will be auto-rejected by the system.
5. If the Host has two or more booking requests (whether on the same dates or not) and the number of nights available for sale at the Property allows accepting only one booking, confirmation of such one booking will automatically reject all other booking requests and end the Listing.
6. If the Host’s property has become uninhabitable and not fit for occupation due to any actions by third parties or natural disasters, this may be considered by DIWERENT as a valid reason for the suspension of property listing due to force majeure circumstances.
7. If by the end of the Listing the Property remains on Discount level 1 (meaning no discounts have been applied), Diwerent, upon agreement with the Host of the listed Property, may extend the period of such Listing for additional term not exceeding 30 calendar days. In this case the additional term will start on the date on which the Listing would have expired if it wasn’t extended. All the other Listing parameters, such as prices, discounts, available dates, etc. will not be changed.
1. If the Host refuses to honour confirmed bookings for any other reason, DIWERENT has the right to block access to his/her account and not allow the placement of their Listings on the Platform in the future.
2. DIWERENT reserves the right to suspend or terminate any listing at any time at its own discretion.
3. The Host hereby undertakes the completion of all confirmed bookings, including any bookings made in a Listing that has been closed early;
4. If the Host claims to be unable to accept any of the Guest who has made a booking at the Host’s property that has been confirmed by the Host, the Host will be obliged to explain to DIWERENT and to the affected Guests the reasons why this cannot be done. In this event DIWERENT will not accept any liability for the Host’s fault to respect the confirmed bookings.
1. When you use the Platform as a Guest you must acknowledge and accept that a confirmed booking of a Property made through the Platform is a limited permission granted to you by the Host, whose Listing you used to book a Property, to enter and stay in the Property and use it for the period of your stay specified through the Platform. Please note that subject to your arrangements with the Host and to the extent permitted by applicable laws the Host may retain the right to reside in the same Property or visit the Property from time to time.
2. Guests undertake to vacate the Property no later than the time and date agreed with the Hosts whether through the Platform or personally. In case Guests continue their stay in the Property after the said time and date without the Host’s permission, the Host will have the right to charge such Guests an additional fee at double the usual amount per night as well as to require the Guest to vacate the Property and to take other actions in any way provided for by applicable laws at his or her own discretion.
3. If you submit a request to book a Property on the Platform, the Host must respond within 24 hours, otherwise the booking request will be automatically rejected. Once a Host has accepted an offer from you to book a Property, DIWERENT will send you a confirmation of the booking. A binding agreement between Guest and Host arises only when DIWERENT sends the confirmation of booking.
4. For Hosts who offer the “Instant Booking” option for their Property, any booking request made by Guests will be immediately confirmed and booking confirmation emails will be sent to both Guests and Hosts.
5. Guests must at all times acknowledge, agree and accept that the agreement between a Host and a Guest as described above does not grant or intend to grant to the Guest any ownership or other rights in the Property, including lease of the Property or the right to offer the Property for booking to any third parties.
6. DIWERENT reserves the right to cancel any booking, whether confirmed or not, at its own discretion within 24 hours from the moment when such booking was made. DIWERENT will not hold any liability for making such cancellation.
Refusal of booking requests by the Host.
1. The Host has the right to refuse the booking request without providing any reasons. In such cases, DIWERENT reserves the right to block on the calendar up to 2 nights chosen at its own discretion from the entire available rental period as a penalty. DIWERENT will have the same right in case the Host does not respond to a booking request from a Guest within 24 hours after such request has been made through the DIWERENT Platform. Nights blocked by DIWERENT as a penalty shall be always counted for the purpose of application of discounts.
Cancellation of a confirmed booking by the Host
1. In the event of a cancellation by the Host of a confirmed booking, the Guest will receive a full refund of the total cost of the booking and no payment to the Host will be made. Failure to provide the Guest with the reasonable ability to gain access to the Property shall be considered as cancellation of a confirmed booking.
2. If the Host decides to cancel a confirmed booking without providing valid reasons, he or she will be obliged to pay DIWERENT a penalty equivalent to 15% of the current booking price if the booking is cancelled more than 60 days before check-in, 30% if it is cancelled 60 to 30 days before check-in, 40% if 30 to 7 days prior to the check-in, and 50% if cancelled less than 7 days in advance. In addition, DIWERENT has the right to charge the Host a cancellation commission of 6.8% from the amount of refund payable by DIWERENT to the Guest, including return payment of cleaning fees, resulting from such Host’s cancellation to cover the transaction expenses incurred by DIWERENT. At its own discretion DIWERENT may, but is not obliged to, release any Host from payment of the cancellation commission. Such release shall not in any way and under any circumstances be construed as waiver from DIWERENT’s right to charge the cancellation commission in the future. DIWERENT shall have the right to deduct any sums due by the Host from any payments that DIWERENT will be making to the Host in the future as well as to demand the Host to pay the outstanding amounts of penalties and cancellation commissions by any other legal means.
3. If a single booking for any one listing has been cancelled by the Host without providing valid reasons, DIWERENT reserves the right to cancel all unfinished bookings from that listing and to not pay the Host any compensation for cancelling those bookings.
4. In addition, DIWERENT reserves the right to not publish any listings from this Host in the future.
5. In order to cancel a booking that has already been confirmed, the Host must contact DIWERENT.
6. Valid reasons for cancelling a booking without incurring a penalty and other sanctions are solely those situations governed by force majeure, such as natural disasters, epidemics, and declarations of state of emergency.
7. In certain circumstances, DIWERENT may, at its discretion, decide that it is necessary to cancel the confirmed booking and make the appropriate refund and payment.
Cancellation of the booking by the Guest and late check-in.
1. The Guest may cancel a booking if it has not yet been confirmed by the Host. After cancellation the Guest will receive a notification about the booking cancellation through the system, and the funds previously authorized by the Platform to secure the booking will be unblocked.
2. Once a booking has been confirmed by the Host, it can be cancelled by the Guest, but will no longer be refundable, unless the Guest has made a booking at the initial price and the price has not been changed by the time of closing of the Listing, in which case he or she will have the right to cancel the booking no less than 7 days before check-in but will incur a penalty in the amount of 10% of the Current Booking price for so doing and the DIWERENT’s service fee will not be refunded. Please note that refunds will be processed after the end of the Listing. DIWERENT makes an exception for the first booking cancellation of each Guest, meaning that where a Guest for the first time no less than 7 days before check-in cancels his or her confirmed booking made at the initial price and by the time of closing of the Listing the price has not been changed such cancellation will not be subject to a penalty described in this paragraph.
3. Where a Guest fails to check-in to the Host’s Property on a date or time indicated in the Guest’s booking (“Late Check-in”), the Guest must inform the Host and DIWERENT as soon as he or she becomes aware of such Late Check-in and agree with the Host the details of check-in on a later date and/or time within the Guest’s booking period. Guests shall not be entitled to refunds for any time of their booking period missed due to the Late Check-in.
Guests’ requests for specific dates/properties
1. Any Platform user, whether authorized or not, can send a specific request to DIWERENT using the form provided on the Platform. This request will be processed by DIWERENT and any suitable properties that meet these requirements will be sent to the registered user.
2. However, DIWERENT does not guarantee that the request received will be satisfied, or proposals will be sent on it.
3. If the request is made by an unauthorized Platform user, DIWERENT will automatically create a Personal Account for such user using the e-mail address provided by the user. Temporary password and access instructions will be sent to the user’s e-mail address. To avoid creation of duplicate Member accounts we strongly recommend registered Members to send requests for specific dates being logged in their Personal Accounts.
Refusal of check-in by the Host
1. The Host has the right to refuse the check-in of a Guest who has provided inaccurate personal details such as name and surname, date of birth, and country of citizenship.
2. The Host has the right to refuse the check-in if the number of people staying in the property is greater than the number of guests indicated when the booking was made.
1. DIWERENT charges the Guests a service fee (commission) in the amount of 13% of the sum of all initial prices indicated in the Listing for the nights booked by the Guest. This service fee is charged upon booking confirmation on top of the booking price.
2. The initial price per night is the starting price from which all discounts are calculated. Initial price for different dates within one Listing can be different depending and are set by the Hosts.
3. All applicable service fees will be displayed at the time of booking. Please note that service fees are non-refundable except in the case when a booking is cancelled by the Host. Payment of service fees does not grant any preferences to a Guest and does not guarantee the availability of a property.
4. Hosts pay a service fee of 3.5% of any sums paid to the Hosts by DIWERENT. This service fee is deducted from the sums payable to the Host for the booking.
5. At its own discretion DIWERENT can use any part of the commission payable by a Host, his Guests, or both, to promote the Host’s Listing to the Guests by offering them an additional discount, moving the property to the next subsequent discount level or otherwise as DIWERENT may think fit provided that the Host shall not bear any additional expenses arising from such promotion and the Host’s missed profit shall be covered from the commissions charged by DIWERENT.
Payments for Guests
1. Guests make payments through the DIWERENT Platform with credit or debit cards.
2. After a booking is made by the Guest the funds required to pay for the booking will be authorised by DIWERENT, but will not be debited by the Guest’s card or account until a booking is confirmed by the Host.
3. DIWERENT will debit the authorised amount of funds from the Guest’s card/account after a booking has been confirmed by the Host. Where the Guest’s currency of payment if different from Singapore Dollars, currency conversion rules set below shall apply.
4.Guests will receive confirmation emails about successful completion of payments for their bookings. Such confirmations are sent automatically to the email addresses indicated by the Guests upon signing up with DIWERENT. Amounts of payments in these confirmations are always indicated in Singapore Dollars regardless of the currency in which the payments have been made.

Both Guest and Hosts must treat other users’ personal information with due care and take all reasonable measures available to them in order to protect such information from unauthorized disclosure. Both Guest and Hosts shall not post, upload or transmit any content that contains such personal information of any users and other third parties without receiving prior appropriate consent of the subjects of such information; both Guest and Hosts acknowledge and agree to assume all liability for the misuse, loss, or unauthorized transfer of such information.
Both Guest and Hosts shall not post, upload or transmit any spam or unsolicited commercial electronic communications of any kind. It is also prohibited to misuse the DIWERENT Platform or any part or system thereof by sending unsolicited commercial communications (spam) or disclosing personal information of other users to a third party, unless such user has granted his or her express permission to such disclosing person. DIWERENT will have the right to delete, suspend or block any such information and users responsible for its posting as described below.
DIWERENT’s right to delete content
1. It is the Members’ responsibility to ensure that their communications, content, Guest Reviews, Listings posted and other information posted through the Platform, do not infringe the law, the rights and freedoms of any person or entity, or contain false, misleading or fraudulent information, personal insults, anything that infringes copyright or data protection law.
2. Any information or content posted through the Platform can be deleted or altered by DIWERENT at its own discretion when DIWERENT believes such information or content is inaccurate or out-of-date or in breach of any provision of these Terms of Service and the Member responsible for posting such Listing can be suspended.
Rights, obligations and undertakings of the Host
1. Without prejudice to other general obligations and undertakings, the Host will have the following specific rights and obligations:
1.1. The Host shall submit valid, complete, accurate and truthful information of his or her personal identity, payment details, the Property offered by him/her in the property listings and other communications posted through the DIWERENT Platform.
1.2. The Host is solely responsible for accuracy, completeness and actuality of any information provided to DIWERENT, including, but not limited to all representations about any listed Property, its amenities, location, price, and its availability for a specific date or range of dates. The Host represents and warrants that any Properties listed by him or her is entitled to be rented by Guests.
52.1.3. The Host must ensure that:
- the information on the Listing is kept complete, accurate and up-to-date for the entire time the Listing remains on the Platform,

52. 2. In order to adhere to the principles of fair trade and to maintain the logic of price formation mechanism used by DIWERENT we ask our Hosts to set competitive market prices for their Listings published on the Platform. In cases when the Host offers the Property listed with DIWERENT through other sources, whether online or offline, the prices set in the DIWERENT’s Listings should be equivalent to the Host’s prices for the same Property listed elsewhere. In case the Host starts offering the Property through other sources after the Property was listed on the DIWERENT Platform at the prices not equivalent to the prices offered through DIWERENT, or the Host changes the prices for the Property offered through other sources in a way that they cease to be equivalent with the prices in the Host’s Listing of the Property with DIWERENT, the Host must inform DIWERENT accordingly at once. In any such event DIWERENT will have the right, but not an obligation, to adjust the prices for the Host’s Property so they would be equivalent to such prices of the Property offered through other sources.
52.3. DIWERENT can monitor third-party sources, both online and offline, to check the prices the Hosts offer for their Properties through such sources. In case DIWERENT finds that the Host has his or her Property listed on the DIWERENT Platform and simultaneously offers his or her Property though other sources at the prices not equivalent to those offered through the Platform, DIWERENT at its own discretion may adjust the prices in the Host’s Listing so that they would be equivalent to those offered through other courses.
52.4. The Host undertakes to carefully monitor and check all information regarding any bookings made by Guests at his or her property as well as any changes, cancellations, requests and communications pertaining to such bookings in his or her Personal Account and, if applicable, in other parts of the website. The Host must understand and agree that although DIWERENT aims to implement and maintain certain informational features and services such as calendar synchronization or email notifications, it may not always be technically possible to ensure communication of valuable information to the Host. The Host must further acknowledge and accept that the most up-to-date and complete information regarding his or her listings, prices, discounts, available dates, property descriptions, photos, bookings, payments etc. can be found in the Host’s Personal Account, and that it must be checked regularly.
