RESERVATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
These terms and conditions apply to all reservations made directly with any entity displayed on this site. By completing your reservation you confirm acceptance of these terms and conditions as a client and on behalf of all members of your party. These terms & conditions, the reservation confirmation and any amendments in writing (including email communication) shall comprise the only and complete agreement between any ‘ENTITY’ on this site and the client. An ‘ENTITY’ is defined as any hotel, apartment or property listed on this site.
1.1 Any reservation made by you shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the relevant accommodation subject to these terms and conditions.
1.2 The offer will become unconditional after the client has supplied valid credit or debit card details that have been subject to payment or pre-authorisation. No contract between you and the ENTITY shall come into existence until the ENTITY receives confirmation of payment or pre-authorisation.
1.3 The pre-authorisation comprises the first night’s rate of your booking. This is required at least 6 days prior to arrival and will be retained by the relevant bank and not the ENTITY. This amount constitutes a guarantee for your booking. On arrival you will be charged the full amount of your booking. The bank concerned will then release the retained amount used to guarantee the booking into the account concerned. Please note that the release time is subject to the terms and conditions of your bank account in question.
1.4 All Advance Purchase reservations are required to be paid in full at the time of reservation and are strictly non-refundable.
1.5 If the client does not provide valid debit or credit card details such that payment or pre-authorisation cannot be obtained, then the reservation may be released and resold without any further notification to the client.
2. SUPPLY OF THE SERVICES
2.1 The ENTITY shall provide the client with all services relating to the agreement.
2.2 The client shall at its own expense supply the ENTITY with all necessary data or other information relating to specific requests within sufficient time to enable the ENTITY to provide such required services. The client shall ensure the accuracy of all such information.
3.1 The total payable by the client shall be detailed in writing by the ENTITY in the reservation confirmation. Any extra facilities to those detailed in the reservation confirmation will be charged at the prevailing rate on the day they are requested.
3.2 The ENTITY retains the right to vary their rates. However, the rates secured in your booking confirmation will not change.
3.3 All charges are inclusive of Value Added Tax at the applicable rate at the tax point unless otherwise stated.
4. DEPOSIT PAYMENTS
4.1 The ENTITY reserves the right to request a non-refundable deposit during certain periods. The particular terms of the deposit will be clearly communicated where applicable.
4.2 Advance deposit charges will be deducted from the total payment detailed in the reservation confirmation.
4.3 Any payment made up-front will be treated as a deposit and is subject to our cancellation policy.
4.4 A security and incidental deposit may be asked for in person upon check-in in or in advance of check in by email communication.
4.5 When booking more than 3 rooms, different policies and additional supplements may apply.
5.1 Payments as specified in the booking confirmation are to be made by the client upon arrival at check-in or in advance where applicable.
5.2 The client will be liable to pay for the cost of repair of any damage to the ENTITY. The reasonable cost of such damage will be calculated at the sole discretion of the ENTITY and charged to the client’s debit or credit card. By providing a valid debit or credit card on or before arrival the client agrees that these reasonable costs may be charged to that card. The client will be notified of any such charges.
6. CANCELLATION CHARGES
6.1 The client agrees to pay the ENTITY compensation (the value of the first night of the reservation) in the event of cancelling a standard (not advance purchase) reservation less than 24 hours prior to arrival.
Arrival is calculated at 2pm on the scheduled reservation date. This compensation is the rate of the first night’s accommodation as stated in the reservation confirmation. As this amount will have already been validly pre-authorised, the ENTITY reserves the right to retain the pre-authorised amount as compensation. See Section 1 for more information on pre-authorisation.
6.2 The Client agrees to pay the ENTITY compensation should they fail to arrive on the date specified in the booking confirmation, known as a ‘no show’. This compensation is the rate of the first night’s accommodation as stated in the reservation confirmation. As this amount will have already been validly pre-authorised, the ENTITY reserves the right to retain the pre-authorised amount as compensation. See Section 1 for more information on pre-authorisation.
6.3 Advance Purchase bookings are pre-paid and non-refundable whereby payment is taken on receipt of the reservation.
7. LIABILITY OF THE ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES
7.1 The ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES shall have no liability to the Client for any loss, damage, costs, expenses or other claims for compensation arising from any written instructions supplied by the client which are incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate, illegible, out of sequence or in the wrong form, or which arise from their late arrival or no show, or any other fault of the client. In no circumstance may any instructions be provided otherwise than in writing.
7.2 The ENTITY shall not be liable to the client by reason of any representation, or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the contract, for any loss of profit or any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs, expenses or other claims (whether caused by the negligence of the ENTITY, its servants or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the provision of the services (including any delay in providing or failure to provide the services) or their use by the client.
7.3 In respect of death or personal injury caused by the ENTITY negligence the entire liability of the ENTITY in connection with the contract shall not exceed the amount of the ENTITY charges for the provision of the services, except as expressly provided in these Terms.
