Once the Traveller expresses his/her agreement with the Offer received, the Provider will send it by e-mail, a link that will redirect them to the property offered, so that the Traveller can complete the reservation.

Card payments will incur an additional fee of 0.5% for each operation. Once the Traveller completes his reservation he will receive an email confirmation of the reservation from the Provider.

Failing to do so, the Provider may terminate the contract, losing the Traveller the amount paid as a deposit and having to compensate the Provider in accordance with what is established in section g. “Termination of the contract by the Traveller”, contained in this clause 6 of “RENTAL OF PUBLISHED PROPERTIES”.
  • Expenses incurred as a result of making any payments (expenses and bank fees, exchange of currency, etc.) will be at the expense of the Traveller. Travellers, therefore, should take into account bank charges and any others that may be incurred according to the method of payment chosen, and verify that the final amount received by the Provider corresponds to the fixed price stated in the reservation.

The remaining amount until the final price of the reservation is completed will be paid 40 days before the arrival date.

f) Termination of the contract by the Traveller

In the event that a Traveller decides to cancel in advance the signed contract with the Provider, or does not appear in the property on the fixed day and time of the check-in date, regardless of the cause that causes such termination, he/she  has to pay an indemnity to the Provider, as well as all the amounts that have been paid as deposit, which will be taken into account to set the total amount to be paid by the Traveller to the Provider as compensation.

The amount of compensation is fixed according to the following rules:

  • If the termination of the contract has been communicated to the Provider at least 90 days before the contract check-in date, the compensation will correspond to 30% of the total price of the reservation.
  • If the termination of the contract has been communicated to the Provider within 30 to 89 days prior to the contract check-in date, the compensation will correspond to 50% of the total price of the reservation.
