We offer a service through which visitors to the Website can either buy quality goods of different nature as advertised by our partners, or make reservations with the hotels which advertise their rooms for reservation on the Website.
4. BOOKING OF TRAVEL PACKAGES
4.1. By making a reservation through the Website, you accept that you will be entering into a contractual relationship directly with the hotel in question. We act solely as an agent for the hotel. We transmit details of your reservation to the relevant hotel and send you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the hotel. We do not have, and never intend to have, any contractual involvement in your link with the hotel.
4.2. Where we receive a payment from you in connection with a reservation, we do so on behalf of the hotel in question, and our responsibility then is solely to ensure that payment is transmitted to the hotel.
4.3. The information contained on the Website is provided by the hotels and, whilst we use reasonable skill and care to ensure that such information is accurate, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of such information.
3.4. The service that we offer on the Website is made available for personal use by you and non-commercial use only.

5.1. We believe that the prices shown on the Website are highly competitive. With regard to hotel reservations, all prices are per room, either for double or single use as specified, for the entire stay and are displayed including VAT and all other taxes (subject to changes in such taxes), unless stated differently on the Website or in the confirmation email that we send to you. Depending on the accommodation package that has been reserved for you at the hotel in question, prices may include meals and other services and facilities, and this will be clearly defined in the confirmation of your reservation.

If an increase in the price already confirmed with you has to be made and exceeds 10 per cent of the total cost of the reservation, you will have the option of cancelling the reservation and receiving a refund of all sums already paid. Whilst we will use our reasonable endeavours to process such refund as quickly as we can (usually within 7 days), the responsibility with regard to the refund shall remain with the hotel in question.

In the event that it becomes necessary to modify one or more of the essential elements of your reservation, we will notify you by email as soon as we can. Should you decline to accept the modification, you must reply to us by email as soon as possible, and your reservation will be terminated. You will not be liable for any penalties, and you will receive a refund of all sums already paid. We will use our reasonable endeavours to process such refund as quickly as we can (usually within 7 days). Where the modification originated with the hotel, you accept that the responsibility with regard to the refund shall remain with that hotel.
As an alternative, you may choose another hotel of equivalent quality, or a hotel of lower quality with the difference in price refunded. You will need to utilise the alternative reservation within 6 months of the commencement of your original stay.
In the event that the hotel with whom your reservation has been confirmed cancels the reservation, we will notify you by email as soon as we receive notice of the cancellation from the hotel. We will then endeavour to agree with you an alternative reservation (which may be with a hotel of equivalent or higher quality without your having to pay any additional in price or with a hotel of lower quality with the difference in price refunded). Alternatively, you will have the right not to proceed and to receive a refund of all sums already paid. We will use our reasonable endeavours to process such refund as quickly as we can (usually within 7 days). However, you accept that the responsibility with regard to the refund shall remain with that hotel.
