In some properties (especially villas and residences) security is payable on arrival before the beginning of the tenancy, to cover during your stay the cost of any damages to the property or its contents. The amount must be paid with cash at the time of check-in directly to the Homeowner or keyholder. The amount less any applicable claims will be refunded to you in the same way it was paid to us or the property owner, at the time of check-out.

8.Our Responsibility for Your Booking

Your contract is with us and its terms and conditions apply. As an agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the accommodation. Our responsibilities are limited to making the booking in accordance with your instructions. We accept no responsibility for any information about the accommodation that we pass on to you in good faith.

We promise to use reasonable skill and care in making your booking and selecting the properties, property owners and any other suppliers we work with. We have no responsibility for the properties themselves or for any services provided by or on behalf of property owners or other suppliers or for the acts or omissions of any property owner or other supplier or any of their employees, agents, suppliers or subcontractors. Please note it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used by us in our selection of the relevant property(ies), the property owner(s), or other suppliers if you wish to make a claim against us.

In addition : 

We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example loss of enjoyment or possessions), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any nature whatsoever which does not result from failure on our part to use reasonable skill and care in selecting the properties, property owners and any other suppliers we work with as referred to above. By way of example and not by way of limitation, we will not be responsible for any claim which results from any of the following:
- the fault of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party or
- the fault of a third party not connected with the provision of the contracted services which we could not have predicted or avoided or
- force majeure (see clause 11)
- the fault of anyone who is not carrying out work for us (generally or in particular) at the time.

We cannot accept responsibility for any services which we have not specifically contracted to provide. This includes, for example, any services or facilities which any property owner or other supplier agrees to provide for you where the services or facilities are not advertised by us as forming part of your arrangements and we have not agreed to arrange them as part of our contract. In addition, regardless of any wording used by us on our website, in any advertising material or elsewhere, we only promise to use reasonable skill and care as set out in clause 10(1) and we do not have any greater or different liability to you.

We limit the maximum amount we may have to pay you for any claim or parts of a claim which does not involve personal injury, illness, or death. Except where the loss of and/or damage to luggage or personal possessions is concerned or a lower limit of liability applies to your claim under clause 10(5), the maximum amount we will have to pay you for any such non-personal injury claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is twice the price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from the contracted services.
Where we are found liable for loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions (including money), the maximum amount we will have to pay you is £50 per person affected as you are assumed to have taken out adequate insurance at the time of booking.

We cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss, expense, or another sum (s) of any description which (1) on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you or (2) did not result from any breach of contract or other faults by ourselves or our employees or, where we are responsible for them, our suppliers. Additionally, we cannot accept liability for any claims, expenses or losses that relate to any business (including without limitation, self-employed loss of earnings).
