How the Site, Application and Services Work
The Site, Application and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and renting of personal property ("Items"). Such Items are included in Stores on the Site, Application and Services by Owners. You may conduct searches as an unregistered visitor to the Site, Application and Services; however, if you wish to view complete details about Items, book an Item or create a Store, you must first register to create a kidtrip account (defined below).
kidtrip makes available an online platform for Owners and Patrons to communicate online and arrange for rentals of Items directly with each other. kidtrip is not an owner or operator of items, nor is it a provider of properties, and kidtrip does not own, sell, or resell items. Unless explicitly specified otherwise in the kidtrip platform, kidtrip's responsibilities are limited to: (i) providing access to the Site, Application and Services and (ii) serving as the limited payment collection agent of each Owner for the purpose of accepting payments from Patrons on behalf of the Owner.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE, APPLICATION AND SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO CONNECT OWNERS AND PATRONS IN ORDER TO FACILITATE RENTING ITEMS DIRECTLY WITH EACH OTHER. KIDTRIP CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY ITEMS. KIDTRIP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS AND ITEMS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY RENTALS WILL BE MADE AT THE OWNER’S OWN RISK.

By granting kidtrip access to any Third-Party Accounts, you understand that kidtrip will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third-Party Account ("SNS Content") so that it is available on and through the Site, Services and Application via your kidtrip Account and kidtrip profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third-Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third-Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third-Party Accounts will be available on and through your kidtrip Account on the Site, Services and Application. Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or kidtrip's access to such Third-Party Account is terminated by the third-party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site, Services and Application.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.
kidtrip will make no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and kidtrip is not responsible for any SNS Content.
kidtrip will create your kidtrip Account and your kidtrip profile page for your use of the Site and Application based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via an SNS as described above. You may not have more than one (1) active kidtrip Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. kidtrip reserves the right to suspend or terminate your kidtrip Account and your access to the Site, Application and Services if you create more than one (1) kidtrip Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, fraudulent or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your kidtrip Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify kidtrip of any unauthorized use of your kidtrip Account.
Creating A Store
As an Owner, you may create an online Store to list your items for rent. To create a store, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Items to be listed, including, but not limited to, the make, model, features, age, original purchase price, deliverability, and availability of the Items and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in user searches via the Site, Application and Services, all Items must have valid physical addresses. Items from your Store will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. Patrons will be able to book your Items via the Site, Application and Services based upon the information provided in your Item Profile. You understand and agree that once a Patron requests a rental of your Item, you may not request the Patron to pay a higher price than in the rental request.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Items you post in your Store. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Item you post and the rental of, or a Patron’s usage of and Item from your Store (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as lease or rental agreements, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Item included in your store (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that kidtrip assumes no responsibility for a Patron’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. kidtrip reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Item Profile for any reason, including Items that kidtrip, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or kidtrip's then-current Policies, or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.
If you are an Owner, you understand and agree that kidtrip does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Patron requests a rental of your Item and uses your Item, any agreement you enter into with such Patron is between you and the Patron and kidtrip is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, kidtrip Payments serves as the limited authorized payment collection agent of the Owner for the purpose of accepting, on behalf of the Owner, payments from Patrons of such amounts stipulated by the Owner (including all applicable fees and/or Taxes).
If you are an Owner, kidtrip makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Patrons you choose to confirm for renting for your Item. You acknowledge and agree that, as an Owner, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at the Exchange of Items, excluding the Patron (and the individuals the Patron invites to the Exchange, if applicable.)
kidtrip recommends that Owners obtain appropriate insurance for their Items. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Item carefully, and in particular please ensure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Patrons (and the individuals the Patron invites to the Exchange, if applicable) while using your Item.
kidtrip does not endorse any Member, Store or Item. You understand that Category Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of items in that category. Category Images are therefore not an endorsement by kidtrip of any Member, Store or Item. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although kidtrip may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of Members, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member's purported identity or background.
Any references in the Site, Application or Services to a Member being "verified" or "connected" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by kidtrip about any Member, including of the Member's identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site, Application and Services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to rent from an Owner or to accept a request from a Patron, or to have any other interaction with any other Member. Except as provided in the kidtrip Terms and Conditions , which is an agreement between Owner and Patron, we are not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
By using the Site, Application or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from kidtrip with respect to such actions or omissions. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by an Owner against kidtrip regarding the remittance of payments received from a Patron by kidtrip on behalf of an Owner, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled "Limitation of Liability".
Rentals and Financial Terms
"Rental Fees" means the amounts that are due and payable by a Patron in exchange for that Patron's rental of and Item/Items. kidtrip does not determine these amounts. It is up to the sole discretion of the Owner to determine rental prices for each item in their Store. This includes any additional fees, such as, taxes, delivery, cleaning, security deposit or any other fee permitted by kidtrip.
"Reservation Statement" will be made available to the Owner after a reservation is booked. It will include a summary of the Items, Rental Fees and Owner Fees as well as dates of reservation ).
"Service Fees" means the fee that kidtrip charges an Owner for the use of its online platform, which is calculated as a percentage of the applicable Rental Fees. The Owner Fees will be displayed to the Owner on the Reservation Statement made available in My Inbox after a reservation is booked.
"Total Fees" means collectively the Rental Fees and the Service Fee (plus any Taxes in respect of Owner Fees, such as VAT in Europe).
When a Patron is interested in renting an Item or Items from an Owner’s Store via the Site, Application and Services, the Owner will receive a notification email from kidtrip on their personal email they verified with kidtrip upon sign up. The notification will include (i) the first and last initial of the Patron who has requested the rental, (ii) the Item/Item’s of interest for rent, (iii) whether delivery or pickup is requested, and (iv) description or address of delivery site if available. The Patron and Owner will have the opportunity to Inmail each other regarding the Exchange. Owners are encouraged to correspond with Patrons in order to make the rental experience positive and efficient. By not responding to Patron Inmails, Owner’s risk reservation cancellation and negative reviews.
kidtrip Payments will collect the Total Fees at the time of reservation and will initiate payment of the Rental Fees (less Service Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Rental Fees) to the Owner within 3-10 business days after the reservation date. The time it takes for the Owner to receive payouts may depend upon the method for receiving payouts chosen by the Owner.
If you owe or agree to pay any amount via kidtrip Payments to kidtrip (whether as a result of your rentals or actions as a Patron or otherwise), then kidtrip Payments may (but is not obliged to) withhold the amount owing to kidtrip from any payout amounts due to you as an Owner, and use the withheld amount to offset the amount owed by you to kidtrip. If kidtrip Payments does so, then your obligation to pay kidtrip will be extinguished to the extent of the amount withheld by kidtrip Payments, and kidtrip will cease to owe to you any obligations (including, but not limited to, any obligation to pay you) with respect to the amount withheld.
Appointment of kidtrip as Limited Payment Collection Agent for Owner
Each Owner hereby appoints kidtrip as the Owner's limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Rental Fees from Patrons.
Each Owner agrees that payment made by a Patron through kidtrip, shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Owner, and the Owner will make the Item/Items available to the Patron in the agreed-upon manner as if the Owner has received the Rental Fees. Each agrees that kidtrip may, in accordance with the cancellation policy reflected in the relevant Reservation, (i) permit the Patron to cancel the rental and (ii) refund (via kidtrip) to the Patron that portion of the Rental Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. Each Owner understands that as kidtrip accepts payments from Patrons as the Owner's limited payment collection agent and that kidtrips’ obligation to pay the Owner is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Patrons. kidtrip does not guarantee payments to Owners for amounts that have not been successfully received by kidtrip from Patrons. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Owner, kidtrip assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Owner.
Please note that kidtrip does not currently charge fees for the creation of a Store. However, you as an Owner acknowledge and agree that kidtrip reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of a Store. Please note that kidtrip will provide notice of any such fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Store fee feature.
Rentals and Financial Terms for Patrons
The Owners, not kidtrip, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed rentals and making available any Items reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Patron, choose to enter into a transaction with an Owner for the rental of an Item or multiple Items, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Owner and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Item or Items imposed by the Owner. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not kidtrip, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that kidtrip is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, kidtrip disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that kidtrip is not a party to the agreement between you and the Owner, kidtrip acts as the Owner's payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Owner. Upon your payment of the Total Fees to kidtrip, your payment obligation to the Owner for the Rental Fees is extinguished, and kidtrip is responsible for remitting the Rental Fees (less the Service Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Rental Fees), in the manner described in these Terms. In the event that kidtrip does not remit any such amounts as described in these Terms, such Owner will have recourse only against such kidtrip entity.
The Total Fees payable will be displayed to a Patron before the Patron submits a Reservation Request. If a requested reservation is cancelled (i.e. not accepted by an applicable Owner), any amounts collected by kidtrip Payments will be refunded to such Patron, depending on the selections the Patron makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Patron's credit card will be released, if applicable.
You as a Patron agree to pay kidtrip for the Total Fees for any confirmed Reservation at the time of booking. In order to establish a rental pending the applicable Owner's confirmation of your Reservation Request, you understand and agree that kidtrip on behalf of the Owner, reserve the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting, to verify your credit card. Please note that kidtrip cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Patron by his or her bank related to kidtrip's collection of the Total Fees, and kidtrip disclaims all liability in this regard.
All payments are processed directly on kidtripco.com. Users are not directed off kidtripco.com to process payment and immediately receive payment confirmation from kidtrip.
In consideration for the use of kidtrip's online marketplace and platform, kidtrip charges Owners Service Fees between 14-18%. There are no hidden processing fees and Owners have the opportunity to lessen their service fee percentage through kidtrip’s Enthusiast Program. Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in respect of the Rental Fees and Service Fees. kidtrip deducts the Service Fees from the Total Fees before remitting the balance to the Owner as described in these Terms.
Balances will be remitted by kidtrip to Owners via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in the Owners’ currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Owner makes via the Site, Application and Services. Amounts may be rounded up or down as described the "Rounding Off" section below.
Please note that kidtrip may impose or deduct foreign currency processing costs on or from any payments or payouts by Patrons in currencies other than U.S. dollars. More information on any such costs or deductions will be available via the Site and Application. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
General Rental and Financial Terms
Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a Patron, you cancel your Reservation before the Reservation is confirmed by an Owner, kidtrip will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the Reservation within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Patron, you wish to cancel a confirmed Reservation made via the Site, Application and Services prior to the reservation date, kidtrip will refund the Total Fees if the reservation is cancelled 24 hours prior to 8am of the reservation date. Details regarding refunds and cancellation policies are available via the Site and Application.
If an Owner cancels a confirmed Reservation made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) kidtrip will refund the Total Fees for such rental to the applicable Patron within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Patron will receive an email or other communication from kidtrip containing these details. If an Owner cancelled a confirmed Reservation and you, as a Patron, have not received an email or other communication from kidtrip, please contact kidtrip at email@example.com.
If, as an Owner, you cancel a confirmed Reservation less than 24 hours from the reservation date (as calculated by 8am 24 hours before the reservation date), kidtrip may apply penalties or consequences to you or your Store, including (i) publishing an automated rating on your Profile, (ii) impose a cancellation fee (to be withheld from your future payouts).
In certain circumstances, kidtrip may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed Reservation made via the Site, Application and Services. kidtrip may also determine, in its sole discretion, to refund the Patron part or all of the amounts charged to the Patron in accordance with the Cancellation Policy. You agree that kidtrip and the relevant Patron or Owner will not have any liability for such cancellations or refunds.
kidtrip may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Patrons or Owners to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest dollar, euro or other supported currency); for example, kidtrip will round up an amount of $101.50 to $102.00, and $101.49 to $101.00.
Some currencies are denominated in large numbers. In those cases, kidtrip may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100 or 1,000 of the currency; the corresponding examples for such currencies would be for kidtrip to round up an amount of 1,045 up to 1,050 and 1,044 down to 1,040, or 35,450 up to 35,500 and 35,449 down to 35,400, or 837,500 up to 838,000 and 837,499 down to 837,000.
Payment Processing Errors
kidtrip will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors that we become aware of. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from our Owners, or to withhold taxes from payouts to Owners, or both. For instance, IRS regulations stipulate that we must collect an IRS Form W-9 from our US Owners, and an appropriate IRS Form kidtrip-8 (e.g. Form W-8BEN) from non-US Owners with at least one Item Profile in the US. You as an Owner are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you as an Owner fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold payments to you (e.g. where you are a US Owner and you fail to provide us with a completed IRS Form W-9), we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.
You as an Owner understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Reservations. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. kidtrip cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members.
Where applicable, or based upon request from an Owner, kidtrip may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Owner.
You understand and acknowledge that appropriate governmental agencies, departments or authorities (the "Tax Authority") where your Item or Items are located may require Taxes to be collected by Owners from Patrons on the amount paid for the right to use such Items, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these taxes are generally required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the Rental Fees.
In certain jurisdictions, kidtrip may decide in its sole discretion to facilitate collection and remittance of Taxes from Patrons on behalf of and in-lieu of Owners, if such tax jurisdiction asserts kidtrip or Owners have a tax collection and remittance obligation. In any jurisdiction in which we decide to facilitate collection and remittance of Taxes, whether you are a Patron or Owner you hereby instruct and authorize kidtrip to collect Taxes from Patrons on behalf of and in lieu of Owners at the time Rental Fees are collected, and to remit such Taxes to the Tax Authority. When kidtrip facilitates collection or remittance of Taxes in a jurisdiction for the first time, kidtrip will provide notice to existing Owners with Store’s in such jurisdictions. The amount of Taxes collected and remitted through facilitation by kidtrip, if any, will be visible to and separately stated to both Patrons and Owners on their respective transaction documents. Patrons and Owners agree that in any jurisdiction where kidtrip facilitates collection and remittance of Taxes on behalf of and lieu of Owners, such Owners are not permitted to also collect and/or remit such taxes on any portion of the Rental Fees. Owners and Patrons acknowledge and agree that in some jurisdictions, kidtrip may not be able to facilitate collection and remittance of Taxes. In any jurisdiction in which we have not provided notice of, or are not facilitating collection and remittance of Taxes to the Tax Authority in your jurisdiction, Owners and Patrons remain solely responsible and liable for the collection and/or remittance of any and all Taxes that may apply to Items. For any jurisdiction in which we facilitate collection and remittance of Taxes, Owners and Patrons expressly grant us permission to transfer data and other information relating to Taxes, if any, collected and remitted relating to your transactions.
Whether you are a Patron or Owner, you agree that any claim or cause of action relating to collection and remittance of Taxes shall not extend to any supplier or vendor that may be used by kidtrip in connection with collection and remittance of Taxes, if any. Patrons and Owners agree that we may seek additional amounts from you in the event that the Taxes collected or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge your obligations to the Tax Authority, and agree that your sole remedy for Taxes collected is a refund of Taxes collected by kidtrip from the applicable Tax Authority in accordance with applicable procedures set by that Tax Authority.
Damage to Items
As a Patron, you are responsible for returning the Item in the condition it was in when you received it. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Patron, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you share, or otherwise provide access to, the Item. In the event that an Owner claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. After being notified of the claim and given forty eight (48) hours to respond, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit card used to pay for your reservation. kidtrip also reserves the right to charge the credit card on file, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to kidtrip in this regard, in situations in which you have been determined, in kidtrip's sole discretion, to have damaged any Item, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Owners under the kidtrip terms and conditions, and in relation to any payments made by kidtrip to Owners. If we are unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Item to the applicable Owner or to kidtrip (if applicable).
Both Patrons and Owners agree to cooperate with and assist kidtrip in good faith, and to provide kidtrip with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by kidtrip, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Items (including, without limitation, payment requests made under the kidtrip terms and conditions) or with respect to any investigation undertaken by kidtrip or a representative of kidtrip regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are an Patron, upon kidtrip's reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with an Owner, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by kidtrip or a third party selected by kidtrip, with respect to losses for which the Owner is requesting payment from kidtrip under the kidtrip terms and conditions.
If you are a Patron, you understand and agree that kidtrip reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused, or been responsible for, to an Item (including without limitation amounts paid by kidtrip under the kidtrip terms and conditions). You agree to cooperate with and assist kidtrip in good faith, and to provide kidtrip with such information as may be reasonably requested by kidtrip, in order to make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as kidtrip may reasonably request to assist kidtrip in accomplishing the foregoing.
Safety and Sanitation
Safety is a primary concern when renting baby equipment. Owners agree that all Items in their Store are up-to-date, meet current federal safety standards, and not currently subject to any manufacturer or distributor recall. Owners must have a product manual via hard copy, pdf, or link to pdf available to the Patron upon receipt. Patrons should inspect all equipment received from Owners upon receipt. Your satisfaction and child’s safety is our top priority.
For more information on product safety please see the Consumer Products Safety Commission at cpsc.gov
Owners agree to properly clean and sanitize Items before each rental. Sanitation procedures may vary and kidtrip requires Owners to uphold the highest standards. Patrons are encouraged to inquire with Owners regarding cleaning practices.
Car Seat Safety
Under no circumstances may an Owner install a car seat for a Patron. Information on installing car seats is generally posted on the car seats themselves or Patrons may request a product manual for the car seat. Local fire stations can also install car seats.

kidtrip's online platform facilitates rentals between Patrons and Owners who may prefer to pay and to receive payments in different currencies, which may require foreign currency conversions to accommodate these differing currency preferences. Although the kidtrip platform allows users to view the price of Items in a number of currencies, the currencies available for users to make and receive payments may be limited, and may not include the default currency in any given geographic location.
Each foreign currency conversion is processed at a foreign currency conversion rate. This rate generally refers to the amount of one currency that must be paid to buy a certain amount of another currency at a given time. For example, if it costs US$125.00 to buy â‚¬100.00, the currency conversion rate of US dollars to Euros would be 1.25, and the currency conversion rate from Euros to US dollars would be 0.8. Currency conversion rates will vary from time to time.
"Display Currency" means the currency in which users view Item prices on the kidtrip platform. In the future, Patrons may choose and change the Display Currency in order to view the pricing for a Store in a number of different supported currencies.
"Rental Currency" means the currency in which a Patron has to pay for his or her rental. At the time the Patron submits a rental request, the kidtrip platform will select the Rental Currency, based on the Patron's country of origin and the payment methods available for that country. kidtrip supports only a certain number of currencies as Rental Currencies. The Rental Currency for a rental may be different from the relevant Item Currency.
"Item Currency" means the currency in which an Item's price is set.
"Payout Currency" means the currency in which an Owner's payout will be paid to the Owner. The Payout Currency is set by the Owner.
"Base Exchange Rate" means a system-wide rate used by kidtrip for foreign currency conversion that is in effect at the time the foreign currency conversion is processed, and does not include any fee or mark-up by kidtrip. kidtrip establishes the Base Exchange Rate using data from one or more third parties such as OANDA (oanda.com).
"Adjusted Exchange Rate" means a rate for foreign currency conversion that is calculated by adding a mark-up to the Base Exchange Rate. This mark-up represents a charge imposed by kidtrip for its holding costs and foreign currency risks.
Foreign currency conversions on the kidtrip platform
kidtrip will process a foreign currency conversion in the following situations:
- The Display Currency is different from the Item Currency when a user views an Item or Store: kidtrip will calculate the estimated Total Fees in the Display Currency, by applying either the Base Exchange Rate or the Adjusted Exchange Rate at the time of the view to the estimated Total Fees in the Listing Currency. The Adjusted Exchange Rate will be applied if the Display Currency is a supported Rental Currency, and it is different from the Item Currency. Otherwise, the Base Exchange Rate will be applied.
- The Rental Currency is different from the Item Currency when a Patron submits a rental request for an Item or Items: kidtrip will calculate the Total Fees in the Rental Currency, by applying either the Base Exchange Rate or the Adjusted Exchange Rate at the time of the rental request to the Total Fees in the Listing Currency. The Patron will be able to view the actual exchange rate applied. The Patron Fee, which is a percentage of the applicable Item Fees, will be calculated based on the Item Fees in the Rental Currency (i.e. after conversion from the Listing Currency). The Adjusted Exchange Rate will be applied if the Display Currency is the same as the Rental Currency, and it is different from the Listing Currency for the Listing. Otherwise, the Base Exchange Rate will be applied.
- The Payout Currency is different from the Item Currency when kidtrip initiates a payout: generally, kidtrip will calculate the payout to the Owner, by applying the Base Exchange Rate on the date that kidtrip initiates the payout to the Item Fees (less Patron Owner Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Owner Fees, such as VAT in Europe) in the Listing Currency. The Owner will be able to view the actual exchange rate applied in his or her transaction history in the Site or Application. In some cases where the payout method selected by the Owner involves certain third-party payment processors (such as Western Union), (i) kidtrip will send the payout amount to the processor in a major currency (e.g. US dollars), by applying the relevant Base Exchange Rate for the Item Currency to that major currency, (ii) the Owner will be able to view the payout amount sent by kidtrip in that major currency in his or her transaction history in the Site or Application, and (iii) the processor will calculate the actual payout to the Owner by applying its own foreign currency conversion rate for that major currency to the Payout Currency.
- When a confirmed rental is modified or cancelled, and there had been a foreign currency conversion when the rental was submitted: the foreign currency conversion for any additional payments required of the Patron or any refund to the Patron will be processed at the same rate as applied to the earlier payment by the Patron.
When you as a Patron submit a rental request for an Item, you will be able to view the actual exchange rate used to calculate the Total Fees in the Rental Currency. Where the Adjusted Exchange Rate is applied, you will be able to view the mark-up included in the rate. The actual exchange rate (and any mark-up included in the rate) will also be stated in the billing receipt for your rental.
kidtrip updates the Base Exchange Rate on a regular basis, but not on a real-time basis. In particular, kidtrip does not always change the Base Exchange Rate immediately when its costs of foreign exchange change. Accordingly, the Base Exchange Rate may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time a foreign currency conversion is processed.
Please note that your payment company (for example, your credit or bank card issuer) will use a currency conversion rate for and may impose a currency conversion fee on your payment or payout, if your card or bank account is denominated in a currency that is different from the Rental Currency or the Payout Currency respectively. Similarly, third-party payment processors may also use a currency conversion rate for or impose a currency conversion fee on your payment or payout. All of these currency conversion rates and fees are not controlled by or known to kidtrip.

The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and kidtrip otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where kidtrip resides. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and kidtrip submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator's Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. kidtrip will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, kidtrip will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modification" section above, if kidtrip changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" above or in the date of kidtrip's email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and kidtrip in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of kidtrip to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of kidtrip. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
