TERMS OF USE FOR GUESTS

Guests can make bookings for rehearsal spaces through our platform. Once a booking is made, it will be considered a confirmed booking when the Host confirms the booking. The transaction will be completed once the booked session takes place (or in the case of no-show without prior cancellation by the Guest in line with these terms and conditions). The booking allows you to enter the premises as advertised for the time period advertised to use the space for music rehearsal purposes only. No other activity is permitted through such bookings, including commercial use. You agree to vacate the premises at the time specific on your booking and leave the premises in a clean condition. You agree that you will not damage, destroy or cause any loss to the Host’s premises or any of the instruments, furniture or equipment within said premises. You agree to adhere to the reasonable instructions of the Host for the duration of your booking.

Guests must inform the Hosts of the following information (Guests accept that Hosts have the right to refuse the booking if they do not agree to any of the below):

How many individuals will be attending the premises during the booking.

If the Guest will be bringing any instruments/equipment.

If the booking is intended to be used for commercial teaching/tuition session.

Hosts may have their own individual restrictions for their premises. Guests must communicate beforehand in order to inform the Host of the above information so the Host can refuse the booking if necessary.

TERMS OF USE FOR HOSTS

Hosts must apply for a listing on our platform to rent their space as a rehearsal room. Hosts are responsible for selecting the price of the hourly rental at a reasonable rate which adequately reflects the location, premises and services provided in their space. Hosts are responsible to select their own rates but the platform may intervene and suggest an amended rate if the initial rate is not representative of the space offered. Hosts agree they will take responsibility for the accuracy and detail of all listing information which includes accuracy of location, descriptions, images, measurements, condition and any other supplementary information about your rehearsal space and the instruments, equipment and furniture it contains. Hosts must ensure all instruments advertised are in a full working condition prior to the arrival of Guests. Host agree to provide the rehearsal space in a clean and hygienic condition. Hosts agree to allow free and uninterrupted use to Guests for the duration of their booking.

We have the right to remove any posting or listing you make on our platform and take any other proactive action reasonably necessary if, in our opinion, your post does not comply with our content standards or is later found to be inaccurate, false or mis-descriptive of the space or services actually provided.

BOOKING CANCELLATIONS
Use of the platform is subject to our cancellation policy. We reserve the right to obtain and collect cancellation charges specified below in accordance with this cancellation policy.

Cancellation fees:

  • Guests and Hosts may cancel a confirmed booking within 30 days of the booking date ad time and receive a full refund, minus booking fees.
  • Guests and Hosts may cancel a confirmed booking within 7 calendar days and receive a 50% refund minus booking fees.
