Your cancellation policy at Charly Cares
At Charly Cares, we work very hard to help you find a suitable Babysitting Angel when you need it most. However, in some exceptional circumstances, you may have to cancel a planned booking. How does that work and what are the consequences? Read more on this page.
Consequences of your cancellation
Do you have an accepted booking? You are clearly counting on the Angel to come at the time you scheduled. But the Angel is also counting on the babysitting service and the expected income. We want to clarify that cancellations without a good reason are not appreciated. For you as a parent, cancelling has the following consequences:
|More than 48 hours in advance||No costs: you let the Angel know in time that the babysitting service cannot take place.|
|Less than 48 hours in advance||€3,99 service fee + 0 hour payment to the Angel|
|Less than 24 hours in advance||€3,99 service fee + 1 hour payment to the Angel|
|Less than 3 hours in advance||€3,99 service fee + 2 hour payment to the Angel|
Angels can now cancel a booking as well
To give our Angels more flexibility, they can now cancel a babysitting service in the app. When they do, they fill in a reason and are required to send you a message with an explanation.
The angel will be impacted by a cancellation metric, which will be visible to the Angel when they cancel and later also to you when searching for new angels. Our Customer Care team also keeps a strict eye on how often an Angel cancels, in order to monitor the quality and possibly say goodbye to Angels who cancel too often.
