Frequently asked questions
Can I continue to host on other platforms?
Yes, of course. We do not require exclusivity, and we have features that allow you to easily manage your listing across multiple platforms, such as calendar sync.
What happens in case of damages?
We are there to mediate your disputes personally and have a dedicated and hands-on customer service team who are there to protect both our hosts and our guests. As a host, you can set the security deposit for your property. Upon booking, our guests agree with our Terms of Service which state that they’re responsible for any damage. In the event of damage, all you need to do is notify Plum Guide and the guest within 48 hours of checkout.

For added security, we offer the option to require ID verification for guests via Onfido if you choose to enable instant book for your listing. In addition, it’s helpful to note that almost 75% of our bookings are made through our Matchmaking service, which means someone from our team has already personally vetted the guest.
When will I get paid?
You should receive your payment on the Friday after the guest's check-in following a grace period of 24 hours. This means you’ll have your payment between 1 and 8 days after check-in.
How do I synchronize my calendar between booking platforms?
At Plum, we use iCal links to synchronise calendars across various platforms. iCal is a standardized calendar format that is widely accepted and used by other platforms like Airbnb, Booking.com, Homeaway, and VRBO. It’s simple and only requires pasting your iCal links from your other booking platforms into your account.
Can you explain more about your fees?
For all bookings we charge you a host service fee of 3% of the total accommodation charges plus any applicable local and sales taxes. Guests pay an additional service fee which varies based on a variety of booking factors and is included in the final price displayed. We also charge a one-time fee of £300, which is deducted from the payout of your first Plum booking. If you never get a booking, you won’t be charged. This fee is to cover the cost of curation and a visit from one of our Home Critics upon your first booking in order to officially award your home with the Plum Award. This will supercharge your bookings with Plum Guide.
