1.1 These Terms and Booking Conditions are available on the website and are issued with the Confirmation Invoice. The making of a booking will form an agreement on these Terms and Conditions (the 'Agreement') between the Guest and the Company for the holiday rental of the property described in the Confirmation Invoice or as otherwise agreed in writing by The Company and the Guest (the 'Accommodation').
1.2 The Company permits the Guest to occupy the Accommodation for the period shown in the Confirmation Invoice ("Holiday Period") together with the use of the furniture, fixtures and effects. It excludes any rights of tenancy.
1.3 The Guest will be responsible for all payments and for any damage whether caused by the Guest or his or her party. References to 'party' in these Terms and Conditions will include the Guest's family, servants, agents or guests. The Guest agrees to make his or her party aware of these terms and conditions.
1.4 The Confirmation Invoice will show the holiday price at the time of booking. The holiday price is set at the time of booking and shall not change. Prices may vary for the same apartments for that period (special offers, price increases or decreases and last minute deals etc), however these do not affect the agreed price of the Confirmation Invoice or any aspects of the Agreement. Should the Guest choose not to continue with their booking, the guest may cancel as per the Cancellation conditions.
2 Security Deposit
A security deposit of £200 is required with your balance of hire. This will be held against your debit or credit card and will be held for up to 14 days after your departure from your holiday accommodation. Parties or any type of anti-social behaviour is strictly prohibited. Any reports of such behaviour will immediately result in the police being called, the apartment being vacated, damages being charged and further legal action taken. We will claim against the security deposit for the repair or replacement of any breakages, losses or damage to the property or contents (fair wear and tear excepted as we do understand that sometimes minor accidents do happen). If you have any breakages, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make any necessary replacements for the benefit of subsequent guests. Please note that damages and losses are not limited to the security deposit and any costs in excess of this amount will be invoiced and payable in full without delay. The security deposit will also be used to cover any additional costs of cleaning if the property is left dirty or if vacated later than the stated time on the day of departure. The Guest agrees the reasonable cost of any repairs or replacement can be charged to their credit card if the Company is in possession of these details.
A deposit of 20% of the total value is required to secure a booking. This applies to all bookings. The booking is secured once the Company successfully charges the nominated credit/debit card. The remaining 80% of the outstanding balance is due 14 days prior to arrival.
For bookings created within 14 days of the intended date of arrival, then full payment is required at time of booking.
4 Final Payment
The full balance of the total holiday cost will be payable not later than 2 weeks before the holiday begins. If the full balance is not paid on time the Company shall notify the Guest of this breach and the Guest will have 5 working days to remedy the breach. If the breach is still not remedied, the Company reserves the right to cancel the holiday booking, and shall retain the deposit as compensation for the damages and any other costs that it suffers under general principles of English contract law. The company may choose to apply a £40 late payment administration fee for overdue payments.
All payments can only be accepted in Pounds Sterling using the Google Checkout online secure payment system or our credit card payments system. It is the Guest's responsibility to ensure full payment is made via the two accepted methods within the time frame. Some cards from certain parts of the world are not regularly accepted by Google Checkout or the Company's card payment system. The Company does not accept cash on arrival
Cancellation within 2 weeks of your holiday will forfeit the full hire amount paid (or due). Cancellation prior to 2 weeks, the full 20% deposit shall be paid (retained) to cover administration and re-letting costs.
7 Right To Refuse/Alter
7.1 The Company reserves the right to refuse any booking.
7.2 The Company reserves the right to cancel or alter arrangements made for the Guest whether before or during the relevant visit (a) in any circumstance which arises from or is attributable to acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond the reasonable control of the Company or Owner or (b) where in the reasonable opinion of the Owner deems it is necessary to perform or complete essential remedial or refurbishment works.
7.3 If a booking has to be cancelled by the Company or Owner, it will take reasonable steps to offer an alternative booking. If the Company is not able to offer such an alternative or the Guest does not accept the alternative offered or the altered holiday arrangements (as the case may be), the Company or Owner will return to the Guest the relevant proportion of the money paid by the Guest in respect of the Accommodation and will not otherwise be liable for any loss caused by cancellation or alteration if it arises out of circumstances beyond its control.
