All refunds will be made using your original payment method.

7 Fees, charges and payment

7.1 The fees and charges will be as quoted on this Site from time to time and, unless otherwise stated, are quoted in pounds sterling. We use our best efforts to ensure that these are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto our systems. However, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the fees and charges on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check these prices as part of our confirmation procedures so that:

7.1.1 where the actual Rental Charges or other fees are less than those quoted on the Site at the time you made your Booking, we will charge the lower amount when confirming the Booking to you; and

7.1.2 where the actual Rental Charges or other fees are higher than those quoted on the Site at the time you made your Booking, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to book the Property at the correct (higher) price or cancelling your Booking. We will not process your Booking until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the Booking process, we will treat the Booking as cancelled and notify you in writing.
7.2 The rental fees may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any Booking which we have confirmed with a Booking Confirmation.

7.3 All Booking Fees, Rental Charges and all other fees and charges quoted on this Site include VAT.

7.4 Before submitting your Booking online, you will be presented with details of the total Rental Charges payable for your Booking together with details of the following amounts payable at the time of your Booking:

7.4.1 the Booking Fee (which is non-refundable) once your Booking is confirmed);

7.4.2 the Deposit and, if the date the Rental Balance would normally fall due for that Booking has already passed, the Rental Balance too; and

7.4.3 any additional fees and charges quoted during the Booking process when you make your Booking (for example, card handling fees, heating supplements, pet charges and linen charges).
7.5 If you are paying a Deposit rather than the entire Rental Charges when making your Booking, you will also be presented with the date by which you will need to make payment to us for the Rental Balance. Please note, we may (but are not obliged to) contact you to remind you of the due date for payment of the Rental Balance.

7.6 We currently accept various forms of payment including via credit and debit card. Please refer to our Payment Methods page for details of the payment cards and methods that we currently accept.

7.7 We take the payments due at the time of Booking from your chosen payment method once you have entered your payment details and have clicked the ‘Confirm Card Details’ button, subject to payment authorisation.

7.8 If the Rental Balance or any other additional payments are due after you make your Booking, then:

7.8.1 if you authorised us to take payment for these amounts when you made your Booking, we will automatically take payment from you using your original payment method. If there has been a change to the Rental Charges due to changes in the exchange rates and additional amounts are payable, we will contact you before taking payment. Please see further paragraph 8.1 below; or

7.8.2 if you did not authorise us to take payment for these amounts when you made your Booking, you will need to make these payments either by using the payment feature within your account on the Site or by contacting us by telephone using the number in the Contact us section below.

8 Payment currencies, interest and credit card surcharges

8.1 During the booking process you may be presented with an option to pay for your Booking in one or more currencies. The payment currencies we accept for a particular Booking will be notified to you during the Booking process. The exchange rate for all payments will be based on exchange rates of Coutts Bank which are applicable on the day payments are made, which may increase and decrease based on changes in the market. If on the date your Rental Balance is due, changes to these exchange rates result in an increase of 5% or more to the Rental Charges we quoted at the time you made your Booking, then we may increase the Rental Balance to include this additional amount. If you do not wish to pay this amount, you may end your Rental Contract giving notice within 14 days of the date we notify you of the increase.

8.2 If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of four per cent (4%) a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

8.3 We incur fees from credit card companies when you pay by credit card and will pass these on. Such credit card surcharges will be advised at the time of booking. We also reserve the right to charge you any banking fees we incur for handling dishonoured cheques, bank transfers or any other payments, which you must reimburse to us within seven (7) days of our written request.

8.4 Please note we charge a ‘good housekeeping bond’, which will be included alongside the charges quoted to you during the Booking process. We will communicate directly with you to collect and (if appropriate) return this bond. We must, within 7 days of the end of the relevant Holiday Period return all or part of the bond to you and, if retaining any part of the bond, notify you in writing of the reasons for doing so.

9.4 Gift vouchers are valid for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase and can be used for any Booking with a Holiday Period that starts before the voucher’s validity period expires. Any remaining balance on a gift voucher may no longer be used after expiry of its validity period.
