Frequently asked questions
Who can host?
It’s easy to become a Smily host in Europe, and it’s always free to create a listing. Entire apartments and homes, villas, treehouses, and castles are just a few of the properties hosts have shared on Smily.
How much does it cost?
Signing up for Smily and listing your property is completely free. Once you receive a reservation, we charge a Smily service fee of 5% plus payment gateway fees, to help cover the cost of running the business. Such service is commonly provided by agencies between 15-20%.
What protection do I have against property damage?
Property owners can request damage deposits from guests. Deposits help cover any potential damage caused by a guest, offering some reassurance that your property will be treated respectfully.
