1.2.  By booking with us, you confirm that you agree to comply with and accept these booking conditions and the following information which we will provide to you:

(i)  the accommodation rental conditions (which means all information in any specific conditions or restrictions set out in the website description of your chosen accommodations);

(ii)  the Important Information section of our website or other publication we tell you about; and

(iii)  any other written information we brought to your attention before confirming your booking.

1.3. These Booking Conditions apply to bookings of accommodation only.

2. Our role

2.1. We are or act as the owner of the accommodation for which you make a booking with us by arranging bookings and taking payments from you for accommodation bookings.

2.2.  When you book accommodation with us, you enter into a legally binding contract concerning renting the accommodation.

2.3.   Our responsibilities to you are limited to making the booking in accordance with these booking conditions and your instructions, processing any amendments to or cancellations of the booking, and facilitating the booking as specified.

3. Your use of the booking

3.1.  The accommodation we advertise is offered for the sole purpose of holiday lettings and/or must never be occupied as your principal home unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing by us. Accordingly, you agree and accept that you are not offered any rights to the accommodation other than the right to occupy it as holiday accommodation for your booking period. No booking is an ‘Assured Shorthold Tenancy’ or protected under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 or any similar legislation that applies in Scotland.

3.2.  Our booking services with you are available for your personal, non-commercial use only. You may not offer for resale any booking services without our express permission.

4. Website details

4.1.  We aim to ensure that information provided on our website or other websites we choose to use about our accommodation and its facilities or services is accurate and complete on the date given. Descriptions are intended to present a general idea of the accommodation and do not constitute any advice or recommendation by us.

4.2.  Not all details of the relevant facilities can be included on our website. Furthermore, slight differences may exist between the actual accommodation and its description, photography and video content. Occasionally, some facilities or services may not be available or may be restricted. If this happens, we will tell you as soon as reasonably practical.

4.3.   WiFi connectivity is subject to availability and network conditions. It may not be available 24 hours a day and is provided for pleasure, not for business purposes.

4.4.  We cannot accept responsibility for inaccurate, incomplete, or misleading information about any accommodation or its facilities and services that we pass on to you in good faith unless this was caused by our negligence. If we become aware that such information is false, we will promptly correct it.

4.5.  We cannot accept responsibility for any changes or closures to local services or attractions mentioned on our website.

5. Making your booking

5.1.  You must be at least 18 years old at the time of booking as the person in charge of the party (“the party leader” or “you”). By booking, you confirm that you are authorised to make the booking. It is your responsibility as the party leader to ensure that the other party members are aware of and agree to comply with these booking conditions and any restrictions or requirements stated in the accommodation advertisement.

5.2.  You are responsible for making all payments to us as specified, including payment of deposits & balances that are due.

5.3.  You must ensure that all the information you provide us in connection with your booking is true, accurate, current, and complete. If any of your details change, you must promptly update them.

5.4.  If you or any party member has any medical problem or disability that may affect your booking, please tell us before you confirm your booking and give us full details in writing as early as possible before you travel. If we cannot make reasonable adjustments to meet that person’s particular needs, we can refuse or cancel the reservation.

5.5.  If you have any special requests, please let us know when you book. Although we will try to facilitate any reasonable request, we cannot guarantee that any request will be met. Confirmation that we have noted a special request or that it is shown on your written confirmation or any other document is not confirmation that the request will be met. If we fail to meet any special request, it will not mean we or they have broken your contract.

5.6.  If the accommodation is available and we have received all the relevant payments from you, we will give you written confirmation of your booking as soon as reasonably possible. This confirmation, usually sent by email, will show your booking details, the amount you have paid and the amount you still owe for the booking.

5.7.  Your binding contract with us will begin when we issue you (or your travel agent or booking channel) the written confirmation, and you have made the appropriate payments to us (or your travel agent)

5.8.  If you pay a deposit, it does not mean we have accepted a booking unless we have issued you with written confirmation. Please do not make any other travel arrangements (such as trains, flights, etc.) until we have issued you with a written confirmation.

5.9.  If you book with us online, we will acknowledge that we have received your booking and then later send you your confirmation by email to the address given. You are responsible for checking your emails regularly and letting us know about any change to your email address.

5.10.  We have the right to refuse any booking before we send you written confirmation. If we do this, we will tell you in writing and promptly refund any money you have paid to us. In this case, we will not have any legal responsibility to you.

5.11. When you receive your confirmation, you must check the details carefully. If anything is not correct, you should contact us immediately so we can rectify the error. We have no responsibility for any errors in any documentation except where we made an error.

5.12.  If you book through a travel agent or OTA such as Airbnb or booking.com, we will send your confirmation and any other documentation to your travel agent

5.13.  Even if we have sent a written confirmation, we have the right to cancel a booking where there are reasonable grounds to believe that (i) it is not legitimate, (ii) you are likely to breach these booking conditions or any restrictions or requirements stated on the accommodation advertisement; (iii) information supplied by you concerning your booking is incorrect; or (iv) you have behaved in a vexatious, abusive or unlawful manner to our staff at any time before during the booking process. If we cancel your booking in these circumstances, we will tell you in writing and we will not have any legal or financial responsibility to you.

6. Payment

6.1.  When you book, you must pay the deposit amount that is due (see also clause 7 Deposit). You must pay by debit or credit card; we only accept pounds sterling payments.

6.2.  We must receive the rest of the money owed no less than i) 8 (eight) weeks before the start of your stay if your booking commences. We will email a polite reminder 7 (seven) days before any outstanding balance owed is due unless you settle the amount owed before that date or tell us otherwise. You are responsible for checking your emails regularly and letting us know about any change to your email address.

If you book less than eight weeks before the start of your stay, we must receive full payment of the total cost of your booking when you make the booking.

6.3.  If you do not make any payment in relation to your booking by the appropriate date, we are entitled to assume that you want to cancel your booking. In this case, your booking will be cancelled immediately, and the provisions of clause 10 (Customer cancellations) will apply. You may also need to pay additional charges.

6.4. If you have booked accommodation through a third-party travel agent or OTA (such as Airbnb & booking.com), please know that they may collect payment differently. Please check with the third-party travel agent or OTA before making a booking.

7. Deposit

7.1.  For most bookings, we will ask you to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your booking.

7.2.  The standard deposit is £100, but we may occasionally require you to pay more or less. You will be told what the deposit is before making the booking.

8. Pricing

8.1.  We constantly review the prices charged, and the prices of our accommodation may be increased or decreased at any time. We may also correct mistakes in our accommodation pricing at any time. We will confirm the price of your booking when you make it. As changes and mistakes can happen, you must check the price of your chosen accommodation and all other details when booking.

8.2.  All prices quoted or otherwise given to you include all charges and any taxes or government charges that may apply to your booking at the time it is made. Variations in the tax rate or government charges may result in variations in the sums due for your booking, and you may be required to pay any additional taxes that arise after your booking has been confirmed.

8.3.  After we have confirmed your booking, we can pass on to you, in total, all costs or charges connected with it, including any price increases due to changes in the exchange rates of currency.

8.4.  All accommodation prices are for the accommodation as a whole and are not on a per-person basis.

9. Changing your booking

9.1.  If you want to change any details of your confirmed booking, you must notify us by calling us as soon as possible. We will do our best to arrange the changes, although we cannot guarantee that we can meet your request.

9.3.  If we can facilitate your change, you may also have to pay any costs incurred in facilitating this change for you. Where relevant, these will be charged at the current website price, which may differ from the price on the website from which you booked your chosen arrangements.

10. Customer cancellations

10.1.  If you have to or want to cancel your booking after it has been confirmed, you must notify us as soon as possible. We will cancel your booking on the day we receive your notice by phone.

10.2.  As shown in the table below, You will have to pay a cancellation charge based on the number of days before the arrival date at the accommodation that we receive notice. This means that if you have already paid the full balance of your total booking cost and then have to, or want to, cancel, you may receive a refund of part of the cost. However, if you have not yet paid your total booking cost by the time of your cancellation, you may have to make a further payment to cover the cancellation charge.

10.3. In the table below, total accommodation cost means the rental price plus any extra items we charged as part of the booking, such as pets and welcome packs.

10.4.  The cancellation charges below have been calculated as a genuine pre-estimate of the losses incurred if you cancel your booking within the stipulated time period.

10.5.  If you have booked through a third-party agent, the term ‘total accommodation cost’ in the table below does not include any charges made by that agent or anyone else for booking fees, flights, other travel services, or any other amounts not paid to us, and you may be liable to pay such charges in the event of cancellation in accordance with the cancellation policy of the third party agent or OTA.

10.6. Cancellation tables:

We ask that you familiarise yourself with the following, confirming what charges will be incurred should you (i) choose to cancel your booking at any point prior to arrival or (ii) not, for what ever reason, complete payment(s) on an outstanding balance due after a standard deposit has been paid:

 

11. Part Cancellations

11.1. If any person(s) in your party needs to cancel, this will not affect the total cost of your booking.

11.2. No refunds are payable if you cut short your stay for whatever reason.

12. Changes by us

12.1.  We do not expect to have to make any changes to your booking. However, sometimes bookings must be changed, or mistakes must be corrected. We have the right to do so. If there is an error or mistake, including on pricing, then the contract between us will be void, and you’ll be entitled to a refund. You won’t, however, be entitled to compensation or to have the holiday at a lower price.

12.2.  If we need to make changes, we will contact you by phone if reasonably possible in the case of a significant change or by email if reasonably practical in the case of a minor change as soon as is reasonably practical. We will explain what has happened and let you know about the change. However, we will have no further liability to you.

13. Cancellations by us

13.1. If we cancel your booking or are prevented from providing the accommodation you have booked, you may choose to:

(i)  accept alternative accommodation – you may have to pay any difference in price if the cost of the new accommodation is higher or be reimbursed the difference if the cost of the new accommodation is lower;

(ii)  request a voucher/promotional code with a redemption value equal to the amount previously paid by you for the booking – the voucher /promotional code terms and conditions will be available before you make your choice under this clause; or

(iii)  obtain a refund of the amount already paid by you for the booking.

13.2. In these events, we will contact you to inform you of these options.

14. Refunds

14.1. In cases where a refund (full or partial) is due, we will typically return the funds to the original payment method used during booking. This process usually takes between 3 to 5 business days from the date the cancellation and/or refund agreement is confirmed.

15. Events Beyond Our Control

15.1. Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions, we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations are affected by “Events Beyond Our Control”. For these Booking Conditions, Events Beyond Our Control means any event beyond our or the Owner’s control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken. Examples include warfare and acts of terrorism (and threat thereof), civil strife, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination (including epidemics, pandemics and the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic) or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which prevent you from travelling to the travel destination and/or make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination or remain at the travel destination, the act of any government or other national or local authority including port or river authorities, industrial dispute, labour strikes, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster, unavoidable technical problems with transport and all similar events outside our control.
