Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about Babaracine rentals

Getting Started & Building Profile

When you book a place on, you’re making arrangements to stay in someone’s home or Hotel. Each host has their own style of hospitality, rules, ppricining starting with how they like to get to know their guests. Some hosts want to approve reservations, while others are comfortable letting you book their place instantly without waiting for approval. Babaracine will help you find a right place that fit your need. 

You will not be charged until the host accepts your request; your payment method will be charged as soon as your reservation is confirmed. We offer two types of payment options:

Full Payment:

Full payment will be taken after the host confirm the availability of the room.

Partial payment:

If you choose to pay a partial payment, you will pay a portion of the total ( fee + deposit if applicable) when your reservation is confirmed, and the remaining balance will be automatically charged on the date(s) listed at checkout at location of your stay.

Whether the reservation is two days or two months away, we hold the payment until 24 hours after check-in before giving it to the host. This gives both you and your host some added time to make sure that everything is as expected. One we give the payment to host there will be no cancellations offered.

What is VAT ?

What is VAT and how does it apply to me?

Value Added Tax, or VAT, is a tax assessed on the supply of goods and services. Babaracine charges VAT on its service fees for customers from Albania, Belarus, Chile, Colombia, Iceland, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, the Bahamas, the European Union, Uruguay, and the United Arab Emirates.

In Mexico and Taiwan, VAT applies to the accommodation price plus any fees for other items, such as cleaning, extra guests, and guest service fees. For listings and Babaracine Experiences located in Mexico and South Korea, VAT applies to guest and host service fees (unless otherwise exempt).

Babaracine is also required to collect VAT on its service fees from all users who contract with Babaracine China. In Japan, Japanese Consumption Tax, or JCT, is applicable instead of VAT. In Japan, JCT applies to the hosts (via the “reverse charge” system) and the guests.

In Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore, Goods and Services Tax, or GST, is applicable instead of VAT. GST applies to the hosts and the guests. In Malaysia, service tax is applicable instead of GST or VAT. Malaysian service tax applies on service fees for guests and hosts in Malaysia.

VAT, JCT, and GST rates are usually calculated according to the local rate of the customer's country of residence or the place of supply.


VAT, JCT, GST, or service tax is charged at the time of payment and is based on the total guest service fee for a reservation. If you change your reservation, VAT, JCT, or GST adjusts to reflect any change in the service fee. Babaracine charges JCT from guests who reside in Japan (and then Babaracine reports and pays the JCT). In this regard, Babaracine (Babaracine Ireland) is registered as a Registered Foreign Business under the JCT act (Registration No. 00046).

Babaracine collects VAT from guests who reside in Taiwan on the guest service fee. Babaracine also collects VAT on the full accommodation price plus any fees for other items, like cleaning fees or fees for extra guests, if applicable, from all guests staying in Taiwanese listings (i.e. domestic and inbound travelers) and Mexican listings. Babaracine is required to charge VAT on the guest service fee from all guests whose reservation listing is located in South Korea.


VAT, GST, or service tax is deducted from your payout and is based on the total host service fee for a reservation (unless otherwise exempt). If a reservation is changed, VAT or GST adjusts to reflect any change in the service fee.

For hosts who reside in Japan, each host is obligated to report and pay the JCT because the hosting services that Babaracine provides are subject to the “reverse charge” system under the JCT act (Babaracine does not charge or report/pay such JCT). As to the JCT payment by way of the “reverse charge” system, please refer to the explanation on the National Tax Agency of Japan's website.

Please consult your nearest local tax offices or your tax advisors as to your specific tax consequences.
