Avatar milena Wimdu is a great opportunity to advertise your apartment worldwide. My rental income more than doubled since I've been renting out my place on Wimdu. So far, my experiences with guests have been very positive - they were all really nice! A personal relationship develops on both sides, which is completely different to staying in a hotel.

Avatar annette Wimdu inspired me to turn a small, barely used room into a cosy little guest bedroom. It's been so enlightening, I even travel a lot myself now!

Advantages of hosting with Wimdu

There are many reasons to list your place on Wimdu - here are just a few of them:

Insurance

A leading international insurance company will insure your place for up to €500,000 per year,
which will cover any damages that may be caused by your guests. Learn more

Insurance policy

The guest who books the place is insured, as well as their spouse and children. The insurance is effective as long as the guest is not covered under their own insurance policy, or is unable to receive a settlement through their own insurance policy.

Deposit

Minor damages can be settled quickest between the guest and the host on-site. Therefore it is sensible to request a deposit from guests, in order to insure your belongings against minor damages. Deposit payments cannot be made to Wimdu but must be specified in the listing in advance, including the desired payment date for the deposit.
