Barter / Exchange
How does a barter work?
If you have put a barter offer online, you will receive offers from other users, or you make a barter request yourself. As soon as you and the other provider have agreed, nothing stands between you and the barter.
Can barter transactions be stopped or cancelled?
As long as barter has not been completed, it can be stopped under mutual agreement. As soon as one party has completed his side of the barter, a cancellation is not possible any more.
What can I do if I have fulfilled my side of the barter offer, but my barter partner has not?
In this case we propose as part of our client service a one-off demand for the outstanding barter offer under threat of legal action from a lawyer. If the implementation is not possible for the barter partner for whatever reason, he can make an alternative offer or propose compensation.
Can I transfer a hunt?
This has to be clarified with the barter partner. Of course you are able to agree individually on the details of your hunt with you barter partner.
I have offered and exchanged something that I have not got any more (loss of hunting grounds, shooting plan has been exceeded). What can I do?
We recommend you clarify with your barter partner in advance how to proceed when the barter has been completed on one side only. A possibility could be an alternative offer or compensation.
I cannot keep a hunting appointment at short notice. My barter partner has already booked his trip to me. What should I do?
We recommend you inform yourself about eventual options of cancellation or withdrawal in the case of both sale and barter hunts.
Are there any hidden costs?
Basically the barter is free of charge. You do not have to either pay your barter partner nor HunterMeetsHunter.com. However, costs for journeys, transport, accommodation, food and hunting documents normally occur. These costs have to be borne by you unless otherwise agreed.
How does a sale work?
After your successful registration, you can create and activate an offer. The customer can then send a request or book the trip directly. Each booking is subject to your confirmation. Only when you (as seller) confirm the date, the hunting trip is fixed.

What happens if I can not perform an already sold hunt?
If the vendor is responsible for the complete loss of an event, he must offer the customer a replacement date or refund the payments already made.
How does a purchase work?
Using the search filters, you can narrow the search results to your needs. Once you have found what you are looking for, you can either send a request to clarify any open questions or book immediately. Each booking is subject to confirmation from the vendor, because often the date has to be check. Therefore, please book flights only if you have received the booking confirmation by e-mail, or a new entry has been created under “My History”.
Can I withdraw from my purchase?
The vendor defines in his cancellation conditions whether a withdrawal is possible. These must be there in each offer.
The prices are shown in the wrong currency?
You can set the currency at the top of the page. The provider must define in which currency he offers the hunting event when creating the offer. On Hunter meets Hunter you have the possibility to view prices in different currencies. An online currency calculator is used for conversion. Therefore the converted prices can be only understood as approximate prices. Invoices will always in the currency, which the seller has defined.
I booked a hunting trip. To whom do I have to pay the deposit?
