Finding a place to stay is easy. Simply type your destination into the search bar and select your travel dates to search. Click on properties to see more details and to read reviews of the property.
Before you book, we recommend sending a message to the host to find out more information and to confirm availability. Once you've decided on your chosen accommodation, follow the steps on the checkout page to send a booking request to the host.
A host has 24 hours to accept a booking request. You receive a confirmation email once it's accepted. With Instant Booking, confirmation is immediate. To ensure your payment is secure, Wimdu only transfers the money to the host 24 hours after you have checked in.
Once your booking is confirmed, your trip can go ahead! You’ll receive the contact details of the host so that you can send them your estimated arrival time. Your host will meet you at the property, will show you around the place and hand over the keys.
After your stay, it’s important to leave a review of your accommodation. Your feedback is valuable and helps future guests gain an insight into what the property is like.
