Transaction Reporting Requirements to Governments

Transaction Reporting Requirements to Governments Many governments around the world now require all accommodation to be reporting to their tax authorities. We expect most OECD countries in the world to adopt these requirements soon. The OECD has recommended all its members adopt new reporting laws for digital platform operators, effectively requiring all accommodation bookings (and other digital transactions) to be reported to local tax Authorities in the countries that the Stay is locate...

What Wi-Fi Speed is Needed?

What Wi-Fi speed is needed? Business grade internet is highly desirable. With the expansion of 4G & 5G cell tower networks and low earth satellites its quite feasible for much of the world now to get 50+ Mbps internet speeds. It can be hard to conduct video conferencing with internet speeds less than 5MBps up and down so we generally talk about minimum requirements of: - 10 Mbps download speed minimum, and - 5Mbps download speed minimum This is for all guests. So its worth testing...

Is My Large Apartment or House a Coliving Space?

Is my large apartment or house a Coliving Space? Let's look at Coliving Spaces a bit. Coliving spaces have developed in recent years to become something like upmarket hostels or private long-stay guesthouses. Whilst bathrooms and kitchens might be shared amongst the coliving members these spaces are managed as a professional, cooperative living location. To be listed as a Coliving Space you'll need a few attributes. - Officially registered business with necessary short stay tourist ...

Limited Availability

Limited Availability What happens if I have limited availability? In order to remain listed for free on our marketing & accommodation booking platform you'll need to ensure you have enough availability for us to sell your rooms throughout the year. As a general rule you'll need at least 45 nights bookable in the next 6 months. Below Minimums When your availability falls below our minimums your listing will be turned off and it won't be possible for our members to see or book yo...

When Should I List a Package?

When should I list a package? You should list a new package as soon as you have it ready for taking bookings. The earlier the better as many of our members book 6 months ahead of time. With Nomad Stays you can set the opening date of a package to a date in the future. Leaving a package's visibility until the last minute when it opens severely restricts your ability to attract pre-bookings.

Can I List a One-off Event for Sale?

Can I list a one-off event for sale? Not at this time. Our platform is primarily an accommodation booking platform designed for digital nomads that travel virtually full-time. Our members are seeing extended stays around the world throughout most of the year. Meetups and one-off events are best promoted through our partner, Wozin (https://www.nomadstays.com/partners) whose events are listed on a range of Nomad Stays pages. You are also open to promoting it on The Nomad Marketplace https://...

Do you Accept Apartments?

Do you accept apartments? Yes. Official short stay apartments rentals and apartment-hotels are a mainstream part of many tourism destinations which we cater for. Bookings longer than 3 months are not expected to be part of our services so long stay residential-style apartment rentals are not part of our service.

Do You Accept Home Stays?

Do You Accept Home Stays? No. We're not expecting to list homestays, room shares, couch surfing or unofficial accommodation properties. While home stays are great places to experience as a tourist, they tend to be a leisure experience rather than one that is suitable for most digital nomads. Many digital nomads will work around the clock and need some privacy for calls at obscure times of the day and night, as well as privacy for confidential client and employer conversations. Wher...

Can I list my Stay if I also live at the property?

Possibly. Its quite normal for owners to live onsite at premises such as guest houses, farm stays, BnBs and hostels etc. Nomad Stays adopts the same mainstream standards as are applied by many governments around the world for hostels. In essence owners or managers that live onsite need to have their own completely separate area independent of guest areas. i.e. - Separate bedrooms - Separate entrance - Separate indoor and outdoor living areas - Separate entertainment areas unable t...

What Wi-Fi speed is needed?

What Wi-Fi speed is needed? Business grade internet is highly desirable but we understand this can be hard to get in many regional areas of the world. Similarly it can be hard to conduct video conferencing with internet speeds less than 10 Mbps up and down so if you have less than this we will need to notify guests in advance. Your internet setup must also be large enough to cater for all guests using it at the same time. - 10 Mbps is our current minimum standard for wifi download spe...

Must I have a coworking space?

Must I have a coworking space? Each Stay needs somehere digital nomads can work on their computers. These working areas will need facitlies like desks, chairs, wi-fi and power. If you don't have this at your own Stay you will need to be near a Coworking Space where the nomads can work from. Ideally, within a 30-minute walking timeframe. This is important as our members are fundamentally entrepreneurs, freelancers, and remote workers. They earn their money by working online regularly. Sitting...

Can I set maximum package lengths?

Can I set a maximum length of a package? Example, 14 days maximum booking. Not at this stage. Currently our nomad members are able to add extra days from their base package. A member that books one of your 14 day packages can add extra days, using the same per-day rate, to increase their booking length. If your room isn't available due to other bookings, or availability restrictions, then these extra days will be prevented from being added into a new booking. But right now we don'...

Can I restrict packages to start on a fixed day of the week?

Can I restrict packages to start on a fixed day of the week? Example, when you only take bookings from Saturday to Saturday only. Sorry, no. This fixed-day technique is sometimes used in domestic leisure markets, during peak tourist seasons, but not something you find in most business traveler booking engines. Digital nomads are much more like business travelers than leisure tourists. Digital nomads need much greater flexibility in dates usually. Saturdays and Sundays for in...
