WoofAdvisor policy for adding business listings

We list all accommodation types both services and rental / self catering.

The accommodation must have an official name and address.

To be listed in a particular accommodation category, we need to verify that the accommodation either:

Meets the WoofAdvisor guidelines in that category as listed here, which means that we would need to see those services listed on the accommodation's website or a partner's website, such as a tourist board or reservations partner.
Is licensed specifically as that type of accommodation by either the local tourism board or governmental officials.

To qualify for the Hotels category, the accommodation must meet all four of the following criteria:

  • A front desk service opened and staffed on a 24/7 basis.
  • Daily housekeeping included in the room rate.
  • Private en-suite bathroom for each unit.
  • If there is a minimum-stay requirement, it must be no more than 3 nights.

To qualify for the Guest House, B&B, or Inns category, the accommodation must have:

  • Onsite staff daily.
  • Daily housekeeping included in the room rate.
To qualify for the Hostel category tab include:

  • The accommodation must have onsite staff daily.
  • Any accommodation that offers shared (dorm-style) rooms will be considered a hostel, and will be listed in accordingly.

"Vacation Rentals / Self Catering" include:

  • Private vacation homes, villas, or apartments that are available to one party/group of travellers at one time for exclusive use.
  • Accommodation where homes/units are at different addresses, even if they are owned/managed by one company.
  • Accommodation without full time staff onsite at the same location with the guest accommodation.

We list permanent places of interest to tourists. The attraction must have an official name, address, and published telephone number. It must be open/available to customers on a regularly scheduled basis. Pre-determined hours or departure times must be published on an official website or in a printed brochure.

If the attraction is not in a fixed place (e.g., tour or cruise), then scheduled departure times, place of departure and destinations (if applicable) must be provided on the website or in the brochure.

WoofAdvisor reserves the right to change these policies at any time and to refuse or remove any listing for any reason.
