TERMS AND CONDITIONS AGREEMENT (T&CS)

 

 

PAYMENTS & DEPOSITS & CONFIRMATIONS

To make a reservation we require a minimum of 100% of the total payment. Without this, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation at any time without penalty. At this point, your booking will be ‘pre-booking’ status. Once you have made full payment for your reservation and registered your card with our secure deposit software – Swikly – your booking will have a ‘confirmed’ status. Once your booking is confirmed you will receive check-in details 1 day before arrival at 10 pm UK time. We accept no liability for people who arrive before your reservation has been confirmed. All major debit/credit cards and bank transfers are accepted forms of payment. Please note that a reservation remains provisional until 100% of the full payment has been received.

We use the Swikly secure online service that allows you to enter your details for your deposit online, without impacting your bank limit. This means NO money will actually be taken from your account. When making the registration Swikly will ask for a pre-authorization of 1€, this will not be charged to your account but is like a hold. We would like to inform you that the value requested for the deposit will be displayed in Euro instead of Pound (which is showing in the channel you booked). This is due to a limitation of the channel, which currently does not allow the option for displaying the deposit value in euros. This is just a registration.

After the check-out time ONLY if we encounter damages to the property of higher value or any misconduct from your side happening during the stay, we will contact you either by phone or on channel chat to inform you why we would like to charge and show proof.

NO SMOKING OR DRUGS POLICY

We operate a strict NO SMOKING POLICY, this includes any kind of smoking or vaping and reserve the right to levy a £150.00 charge for deep cleaning charge and possible compensation for the next guests in the event of you smoking in the apartment or building.

APARTMENT UNAVAILABILITY

Should your apartment be double booked or unavailable for any reason our liability is limited to the payment received for the accommodation booked with us.  This liability does not extend to travel commitments or other costs. We will try our best to accommodate you in one of our other properties.

CANCELLATIONS

If you cancel your reservation more than 30 days from your arrival we charge 0% of the total price, 100% if you cancel within 30 days of your arrival date.
