InapDesa helps the public (or users) to discover accommodation (such as homestays, hotels, etc.) offered by owners for short term rental. Users may browse the InapDesa website to search for suitable accommodation listed there. To book accommodation, users must Sign In after having Signed Up. Booking of accommodation by users is free of charge. Upon submission of booking by users, InapDesa booking system will notify the user by email regarding the booking made and at the same time will email to owner to get his confirmation on the booking. A text (sms) is also sent to owner informing him of the new booking. Owner is expected to respond to the booking request immediately whether to accept or to decline. Immediate action by owner will enable securing of accommodation unit by short notice thus maximizing sales (rental) of units and enhance user convenience and popularity in using InapDesa booking system. A 48 hours’ response time limit is arbitrarily stated but owners shouldn’t really take that much time to respond. When owner responds to the booking i.e. whether accept or decline, user will be notified of such by email and as well as by text (sms). Therefore confirmation of booking should not take too long and it all depends on owner responsiveness. If owner confirms to accept the booking, owner will be provided with the telephone number and other contact details of the user or guest that made the booking. The guest will also receive a confirmation email on the booking. The owner should then contact the guest at the earliest possible time by phone call or text (such as whatsapp or sms) to make the necessary arrangement for payment (such as deposit or full payment as practised by owner), time and place for key collection, etc.

However owners are prohibited to provide any info on communication such as telephone numbers, emails, website or blog address, etc. due to InapDesa requires that all communication leading to confirmation of booking shall be done through InapDesa booking system.
