An ‘Instant Booking‘ is the fastest and easiest way to accept a booking.

In addition to the reduced effort on your part, immediate bookings also have other advantages, such as:
If you are interested in making your apartment instant bookable please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org, reach out to your Account Manager, or submit the form below.
Homelike verifies and charges the tenant’s credit card instantly and directly upon booking. This means every booking with card payment will have a successful payment. If the card payment fails, the booking will not be finished.
To protect you, and the guest, from any unnecessary refunds when there are last-minute adjustments, guests are charged the amount of the first month’s rent when they book accommodation on Homelike. After guests have checked into their accommodation, hosts typically receive the payment within 2 business days.
Homelike transfers the first month’s rent, minus our service fee, to your elected bank account. Generally, your payout is sent 2 business days after the move-in date.
All subsequent monthly rental payments, as well as the security deposit, will be transferred to you directly by the tenant.
Important: Companies booking apartments for their employees always require a proper invoice. As the landlord, you must issue these invoices.
