Your holiday contract
When you make a booking either through the Company’s website or otherwise you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party group the terms and conditions of this booking. You must be at least 21 years old to make a booking with us. The booking is confirmed when a successful payment is made. Booking can be made either online via our website or manually through any of our representatives. Your booking with us will be governed by Cyprus Law and is subject to the jurisdiction of the Cyprus Courts at all times.
Paying for your holiday
When booking a holiday, you will be requested to pay a 30% deposit of the total amount.
The balance of your holiday price must be paid at least 30 days before arrival. If you fail to pay in full 30 days before arrival your holiday will be cancelled, and you will lose your deposit and any insurance premiums you have paid. If you book within ‘30 days period’ prior to your arrival this will be classed as a late booking and in this case, we must receive full payment. You can pay for your holidays by debit or credit card before we can confirm your booking. We accept payments via Paypal or Secure Trading (UK debit/credit secure payment system) or SIX payment Service (Swiss debit/credit secure payment system). Also, we accept payments via bank transfers; the booking will be confirmed as soon as the payment is received in our bank account. We only accept payments in Euro so any exchange charges will be undertaken by your part/client.
Your holiday price
We reserve the right to alter the prices of any of the holidays shown in our website. Upon your request, you will be advised of the current price of the holiday that you wish to book before your booking is confirmed. Please contact us to obtain the latest prices for holidays, transportation and any other supplements required.
When you arrive to your holiday destination, we will require a refundable breakage deposit paid locally 350 Euros per property. Please note that the breakage charge does not fully cover you for any improper and negligent behavior. If the cost of accidental damage exceeds the breakage deposit, a charge will apply on the spot. You are responsible for the full payment of any damage caused to the property. In addition, you are responsible to inform Villas2let about the details ie full names of the entire holiday group as well as a secondary mobile number which Villas2let shall use to contact you in case of an emergency.
Please always check your booking summary confirmation and all other documents you receive from us immediately. You must contact us straightaway if any information appears to be incorrect as it may not be possible to make changes at later stage. On top of that, we do send various automated emails to the email address used whilst booking your holiday. Those emails are related to bookings terms and conditions, directions to the property, instructions how to access the holiday property and finally information about the guest list. Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to acknowledge and agree with the content provided or request additional clarifications. Unless we hear from you otherwise, we understand you understood and agreed with the entire conditions and information provided.
We are responsible for providing the holiday home we have confirmed to you. If you cancel or alter your booking at any stage later, you may have to pay an amendment charge. We reserve the right to refuse your booking. If we do, we will refund any money already paid to us. Booking is confirmed when the deposit payment is reached our bank and relevant confirmation is provided to you.
If you change your booking
If you wish to change your accommodation arrangements in any way, for example your chosen arrival and departure date, we will do our utmost to make these changes, but it may not always be possible due to availability restrictions. We clarify that changing from a holiday property to another is not possible without additional charges. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking – the party leader.
If one member of the party withdraws from the holiday, someone else can take his/her place providing he/she complies with the booking conditions. At this case, you must edit the guest list and email the new guest list to our reservations department ([email protected]).
If you cancel your holiday
To cancel the entire accommodation booked, the party leader must email our reservations department ([email protected]). Our contact details are quoted here but they are also stated in your booking summary. Cancellation takes effect on the date we receive your email/notice. If you cancel after we confirm your booking, you must compensate both the property owner for losses as well as us, as we incur costs from the moment the booking was confirmed. The closer your cancellation is to the departure date, the less likely we are to recover the costs by re-selling the accommodation at the original price. Our cancellation charges therefore increase as the arrival date approaches, as shown below. If you must cancel for a reason covered by your insurance policy, you should be able to recover the cancellation charges. Claims must be made directly to the insurance company concerned. For all holidays and accommodation types the following cancellation charges apply:
- More than 30 days prior to arrival– loss of deposit
- Less than 30 days prior arrival– loss of total amount
If we change or cancel your holiday
It is very unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your accommodation arrangements; however, in the event of a significant change or cancellation must be made to your accommodation arrangements, we will notify you as soon as possible. You may then: a) accept the changed arrangements; b) take an alternative villa subject to availability. If the alternative is of a lower price than that originally booked, then the difference (if already paid by you) will be refunded. If the alternative is more expensive, we will do our outmost to cover the difference in the cost; or c) cancel your booking completely, and in this case, we will refund you all monies paid by you.
We shall only examine any compensation claim if you notify us within 24hours from the time of the event occurrence.
Note that compensation arrangements do not apply to any occasions and especially circumstances beyond our control. We can cancel your holiday arrangement in the following circumstances: force majeure, war, threat of war, riots, civil strikes or terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disasters, fire, airport, port or station closures, bad weather conditions and similar events beyond our control. Also, we may be forced to cancel your accommodation if the holiday property is classed uninhabitable in case of water and/or electricity failure or if the holiday property does not qualify or meet our holiday standards.
Data protection policy
Tenancy Terms and Conditions
This is reserved exclusively for the people named on the guest list and no other persons are permitted to stay at the accommodation unless this has been agreed with us in writing and additional payments are made (if applicable). Additional guests will be asked to vacate by our representatives or any other person in authority.
On departure day you should leave the accommodation in a reasonably clean and tidy condition so that we can efficiently prepare it for our next guests. Note that we reserve the right to post charge you with restoration cleaning fee if the condition of the holiday property is found in inappropriate standards. Please note that single sex parties or groups of young adults (under 21) may only be accepted at selected villas and after our confirmation. The latter entails greater security bond.
Arrival and Departure
The holiday period will normally begin after 16:45pm on the rental arrival date and terminate at 11:00am on the scheduled rental departure date. Guests need to call/ask the Villas2let representative to arrange for an inspection time on the changeover day. Please note that the inspection appointment must take place exactly at the time which is confirmed since our Villas2let executives have pre-organized the inspection appointments and any delay from your part will result to further successive delays to our already confirmed appointments. Please note that our executives can only spare 5 minutes extra time waiting, if you fail to meet this requirement, then our executives will have no option to proceed to the next appointment. As a result, the security deposit will not be refunded to you. If after the inspection, we discover that damages were made, then the amount relevant to repairs/replacements will be charged on the party leaders’ credit card. With this said, we strongly advise you to buy the damage waiver.
We strongly advise you to make insurance arrangements before your holidays. In case of cancellations or accidents that may occur during your holidays the role of Villas2let as the owner’s representative is to provide witness and information to both guest’s and owner’s insurance companies. It is expressly clarified to the guests that as the owner’s representative will not take any responsibility in such cases. Such unfortunate event, if ever happens, will be sorted out between the guests and the owner.
Villas2let liability to you
If you have any query regarding your accommodation, we will do our outmost to ensure that this will be sorted out as soon as possible. Our liability shall be limited to make the necessary arrangements to enhance your holiday. Always be aware that we act on behalf of the owner, so any unresolved issues must be arranged between the two parties. In cases of building activity which may occur after your booking confirmation, we have the liability to inform you about such event with the intention to advise us how you would like us to proceed on your behalf. However, we will not accept responsibility for any of the following circumstances a) you fail to comply with our terms and conditions, b) if you or any member of your party is at fault, c) if the fault is of someone else not directly related to your accommodation but related to people yourselves bought services from, d) any unusual or unexpected circumstances beyond our control which we could not have avoided even if we had used all possible care, e) any event which we or the owner could not help or prevent.
