It is only upon receipt of a fully completed, signed booking form and cleared funds that a booking will be confirmed. By signing the booking form, you agree to rent a villa on the terms specified and accept the terms and conditions set out herewith. Signing the booking form constitutes a legally binding contract as set out in our terms below.
The villa you have booked is available only between the dates specified in our Agreement. Entry to the villa is no earlier than 4pm on day of arrival and the villa must be vacated by no later than 11am on day of departure.
The deposit amount to secure the requested dates is shown on the booking form. The balance due, including a returnable damage deposit which is also specified, will be due by the date indicated. If the balance has not arrived by the due date, the right is reserved to offer those dates to other clients.
When booking within 10 weeks of your arrival date, the full rental and damage deposit in the sums specified are payable in full.
In respect of villas where rentals are quoted in currencies other than UK Pounds Sterling, an adjustment may be required due to currency fluctuations. We will advise you of that at time of payment. You can protect against future currency fluctuation by paying for the rental in full in advance.
In all cases, a formal acknowledgement letter/fax and or e-mail confirming receipt of funds will be sent to you once your cheque has cleared or bank transfer completed. It is suggested that wire transfers or Bankers cheques will speed up clearance of funds.
Upon receipt of the total amount due for the rental, any necessary information will be forwarded to you, ie: maps, contact and key collection details etc.
No refund will be given in the event of any cancellation by you. Both the deposit to secure dates and balance are non refundable. Only the damage deposit is refundable to the sum specified on the booking form which is paid with your final balance.
It is strongly recommended you take out travel insurance against sickness, personal accident, cancellation cover, etc., as no responsibility for any losses howsoever incurred will be accepted. Upon signing a booking form, you agree to become liable to paying all rental costs and the form constitutes a contract between the two parties.
Whilst properties are maintained to a high standard, we cannot accept responsibility for the breakdown or absence of equipment and facilities offered. If any facility offered is not functional or available at any time during the rental, the management company should be informed and reasonable effort will be made to have such facility replaced or repaired as appropriate.
The right is reserved, should the booked property be unavailable for any reason beyond our control, to provide alternative accommodation of an equal or superior standard or offer a 100 per cent refund. No claims for additional sums in lieu of compensation will be considered.
Return of villa keys are to be as specified by the local representative or ourselves. Keys not returned within 14 days of your departure from a villa will entail a deduction as specified for the villa rented, as the front lock and other locks will need to be changed.
Your damage deposit will be returned 14-21 days after your departure from the villa and subject to the return of all keys. Any deductions as a result of damage will be assessed by the local representative and notified to us. Any agreed deductions for services such as extra maid service, cot/high chair hire and telephone usage will also be deducted at this time, unless they have been paid in advance.
This contract is for vacation/holiday rentals only. You should indicate if there are to be any commercial activities carried out while at the villa or an excess number in your travel party than was originally booked.
We are not responsible for any damages, injuries or losses suffered by you or anyone staying at the villa and we recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover your party.
This contract shall be governed and interpreted by English Law and in the event of any dispute arising between the parties the Courts of England shall have jurisdiction. The place of performance of this contract is England.
