CENTRAL DE RESERVAS DESIG, S.L (from now on referred as the booking central) supplies up to date and useful information about houses, hotels and properties of touristic use (referred as ACCOMMODATIONS) and provides the way to realize online bookings for the mentioned accommodations.
It is very important to read and understand these terms and conditions before using our services. Using our services means the client is legally bound to the present conditions and to the possible changes that may affect the client in the future. Please mind that some apartments have special conditions regarding payment methods, minimum age requirements, check in/out hours, behavior rules, etc. These special conditions can be found at each of the apartment's profile under the title "Particular Conditions". The special conditions of each apartment will prevail, in all cases, over the following general conditions. Be sure to read these conditions before completing a booking.
Our organization acts as an intermediary between the users of our website and the ACCOMMODATIONS. By using our services and making a booking, the contractual relation is established between the users/clients and the owner of the ACCOMMODATION.
The BOOKING CENTRAL is only responsible for the website operational. The website content is provided and updated by the ACCOMMODATIONS owners and is available to users for free.
As far as the ACCOMMODATION owner is concerned, he is the one responsible for all possible claims that he might receive from the client with respect to the ACCOMMODATION, the operation and quality of his services, installations (facilities), etc, so that the clients, in any case, should address their claims to the owners directly. The BOOKING CENTRAL offers the clients a quality control of the services provided via online reviews and questionnaires. Once the user / client has checked out of the accommodation, the client will be asked to fill in a review in order to obtain information about the quality, accuracy ande veracity of the data strengthened by the owners of the ACCOMMODATIONS.
Using the services contained in the present BOOKING CENTRAL website implies that the user has accepted the following general conditions:
The present terms and conditions have been translated to several languages, however, in case of misunderstanding, the Spanish version will be the one imposed.
While completing the booking process, the user has to indicate the exact number of persons that will be lodged in the apartment. Children above 4 years old are considered "Adults" and must be included in the number of adults selected. The "Children" option is available only for children under 4 years old that can sleep in a cot (where available) or in their parents' bed. Please mind that requesting a baby cot might have an additional cost.
The booking center offers free lodging for ONLY one child under 4 years old. In case you are travelling with more than one child under 4 years old. Please mind that only one child will be admitted for free and the rest of them will be considered adults and will have to pay the full rate.
Once the users has checked the availability of the ACCOMMODATION and in order to be able to make the booking, we will charge your credit card with the corresponding booking percentage of the selected ACCOMMODATION total cost, which would have been clearly specified within the booking process in euros (€).
After paying the booking down payment, the user (now client) will receive a confirmation email with all the booking details. If the client does not receive it, he will need to contact email@example.com so the BOOKING CENTRAL can send the booking details once again to the e-mail address provided through the booking process. This e-mail will include the details of a contact person, that can be either the owner of the ACCOMMODATION or his representative, whom is not related to the BOOKING CENTRAL.
Please remember that upon arrival at the ACCOMMODATION the outstanding amount stated in the booking confirmation will need to be paid in cash and in euros (€) to the contact person.
The invoicing amount of the online booking will be send out by the CENTRAL DE RESERVAS. The invoice will be send by mail after the booking transaction.The LANDLORD will send the guest the invoicing of the rest of the amount, which corresponds to the payment of the housing. The guest will need to ask the person he/she will be in contact with as he/she does the check-in to give him/her this invoicing.
