After visiting our Site you may wish to book Tastings with a Provider. Once you have decided on the proper Provider, you'll be required to create a booking. At the time of each booking you'll be required to pay in full, the total amount of the reservation (Total Booking Payment) or to pay a Deposit

The Total booking payment is comprised of a payment to the provider and Tasting Escapes Service Provider Fee (which is a percentage of the total payment). Total booking payments are calculated based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the rates per person provided by the Providers, and the number of guests.

Although your credit card may be charged at the time of booking, please be aware that no bookings are confirmed until after you have received a confirmation notification from a Provider confirming the booking.

Rates displayed in other currencies are an estimation based on current exchange rates.

When you make a sale through Tasting Escapes, you will be charged a Tasting Escapes Service Provider Fee up to 16% of the total booking payment. The Tasting Escapes Service Provider Fee is automatically deducted from the payout to the seller.

Stripe charges a payment processing fee of 2.9% + 30 cents for processing each successful transaction through Stripe. This fee is assessed on the total booking payment, including tax. Unlike other fees, the payment processing fee is deducted from the transaction amount as the funds become available for deposit.

Tasting Escapes reserves the right to change and alter any fees at any time. If any changes to the fee or commission structure occur, Tasting Escapes shall notify the affected party. If a User or Provider fails to accept such fee changes, the User or Provider's sole remedy is to terminate these Terms and to cease using the Site and Platform immediately. A Provider or User's continued use of the Site after such notification shall constitute acceptance by Provider or User of the fee changes.

When a client books an activity the total amount will be charged to the client and kept by Tasting Escapes in an escrow account.

The total amount minus the Tasting Escapes agreed commission payment will be initiated to the providers bank account 1 business day after fullfilment.
Providers which are located not in countries supported by our third party payment processor: Stripe, will not be able to choose the full fee payment model. These providers will need to use our deposit payment model.
