Bookings are made and accepted only on the following conditions:
Bonaventure Property Services Limited, trading as Bonaventure and bonaventureproperty.co.uk hereinafter called “Bonaventure Property Services”, act only as agents for
- (i) the property owners of the accommodation (“the Owner”) or (ii) other agencies who themselves act as agents for the Owner.
In all circumstances, the Contract of Letting is between the guest (“the Guest”) and the Owner. Bonaventure Property Services is part of a group, and “Agency Group” means Bonaventure Property Services and any subsidiary or direct or indirect holding company of Bonaventure Property Services, and any subsidiary of any such direct or indirect holding company from time to time.
The Owner is solely responsible for providing the accommodation and for the safety of all Guests and/or his/her invitees (jointly known as “the Guests”). Bonaventure Property Services accepts no responsibility for personal injury to, or death of, any Guests, or loss of or consequential loss or damage to their property, or for other matters over which Bonaventure Property Services has no control, except to the extent such personal injury or death is caused by the negligence or wilful default of the Agent.
This agreement is made on the basis that the property (“the Property”) is to be occupied by the Guests for a holiday as mentioned in the Housing Act 1988 Schedule 1 paragraph 9 and the Guests acknowledge that the tenancy granted by this agreement is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy will arise when it ends.
Bookings cannot be accepted from persons under 18 years of age. Group bookings of single sex parties are not allowed unless special arrangements are made by Bonaventure Property Services with the Owner. (Safety deposits may be required).
Any pets you intend to take with you should be declared at the time of booking and checked and authorised via the owner (where requested).
A full payment of the cost of the holiday (“Full Payment”) must accompany the booking request, plus the Booking Fee and the Holiday Insurance (if actively selected at the time of booking). The Booking Fee and Full Payment are non-refundable unless Bonaventure Property Services is unable to accept the booking, and as specified below. The Holiday Insurance is non-refundable if cancelled outside of the 14 day cooling off period. If Holiday Insurance is cancelled within the 14 day cooling off period, a refund will be provided, subject to no claims having been made during that period.
We recommend that Holiday Insurance be taken out (whether arranged by Bonaventure Property Services or otherwise) when making a booking even when payment is made in full – see clause 11. Please note that where Holiday Insurance is taken out with Bonaventure Property Services it is being arranged by Bonaventure Property Services, and not by the Owner, nor by any other agencies or member(s) of Bonaventure Property Services’s group.
No bookings are valid until confirmed by Bonaventure Property Services in writing.
Once a booking is confirmed by Bonaventure Property Services, the Guest is responsible for the full balance of the cost of the holiday. This shall be paid not later than 9 weeks before the booking is due to commence.
Bonaventure Property Services reserves the right to re-let any holiday where any monies due are more than 14 days in arrears whereupon any monies paid by the Guest over and above the non-refundable Holiday Insurance, Booking Fee and Full Payment will be refunded. However, if Bonaventure Property Services is unable to re-let the holiday the Guest will remain liable for the outstanding balance of the cost of the holiday, and (if applicable) the Holiday Insurance, the Full Payment and the Booking Fee.
In the event of the accommodation becoming unavailable (such as fire or flooding), Bonaventure Property Services will endeavour to provide the Guest with suitable alternative accommodation or will refund all monies paid or a proportion in the case of curtailment. We cannot, however pay any compensation or expenses as a consequence of such an event.
In the event of cancellations not covered by insurance, Bonaventure Property Services will endeavour to re-let the accommodation, and if successful the balance of the cost will not be due as in paragraph 8 above, or if already paid, will be refunded. Any request to cancel must be put in writing to Bonaventure Property Services in the first instance. The Booking Fee and Full Payment will be retained. If applicable, Holiday Insurance will be retained, unless cancelled within 14 days of booking.
A Guest requiring a booking to be altered once the booking has been confirmed will be charged £20.00 if a revised confirmation is required.
At certain times of the year Guests will be eligible to secure their next holiday for a Full Payment which is less than as set out in clause 5. We will give you details of any applicable terms before, or when, you make your booking.
Guests wishing to take pets on holiday must abide by the following rules: Responsible pet owners are welcome and the following applies to all bookings: “Regret no pets” relates to properties where pets are not permitted, however there is no guarantee a pet has not entered the premises at any time and does not imply that the property is “Pet Free” such as a guide dog or one belonging to the Owner of the property. “Pets welcome” relates to properties which allow pets (at a standard extra cost). In properties which take “Pets by arrangement”, one small well-behaved dog is usually permitted (at a standard extra cost), but must be checked with us prior to booking.
However young pets i.e. puppies MUST be declared to Bonaventure Property Services at the time of booking and authorised by the Owner. If a puppy or young pet is taken to a property without the consent of the Owner this could result in you being asked to leave without compensation. When booking online it is advised you check the acceptance of your pet by telephoning the Reservations Department.
We ask dog owners to observe the following rules (failure to do so may result in you being asked to leave without compensation).
- Dogs must be under strict control at all times while in the property
- Any fouling of lawns etc. must be cleared up without delay.
- The dog owner must bring the dog’s bed or basket for sleeping in.
- Dogs MUST NOT be left alone in the property or elsewhere at any time.
- Dogs MUST NOT lie on beds or furnishings, and hair must be well cleared up before departing.
Dog owners must ensure that their pets are free from parasites and fleas before they occupy the property. Failure to do so will incur subsequent charges.
Properties which do not take dogs may have on occasions had guide dogs in them.
Each dog or pet will be charged at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter. However, any damage (which must be reported to the Owner immediately) or excessive cleaning that may incur an additional charge, will be at the Owner’s discretion.
The Guests shall keep the Property and all furniture, fixtures, fittings and effects in or on the Property in the same state of repair as at the commencement of the holiday, and shall leave the Property in the same state of cleanliness and general order in which it was found. The Holidaymaker must report and pay to the Owner the cost of any damage or breakages made during their holiday occupancy. Bonaventure Property Services and the Owners reserve the right to make a reasonable charge where guests have contravened an Owner’s request for their property to be smoke free.
The Guests right to occupy the Property may be forfeited without compensation if:-
More people or pets than declared at the time of booking or before the commencement of the holiday to Bonaventure Property Services and/or the number the Property holds, attempt to take up occupation.
Overnight guests are entertained without the Owner’s express permission.
Any activity is undertaken which is illegal, or may cause unreasonable damage, noise, behaviour or disturbance.
If the holidaymaker or guests smoke in the property.
All prices quoted exclude VAT and Insurance Premium Tax where applicable at current rates.
In the event of there being cause for complaint concerning a Property, the matter shall be taken up with the Owner/Caretaker at once, (their details are supplied on the booking confirmation and they understand that they are the first point of contact should there be cause for complaint), only thereafter reported to Bonaventure Property Services if required. It is important that this is done whilst you are still at the Property so that an on-the-spot investigation can be made if necessary and remedial action taken if required. In no circumstances will compensation be considered for complaints raised after the holiday has ended, when the Guests have denied the Owners/Caretakers or Bonaventure Property Services the opportunity of investigating the complaint and endeavouring to remedy matters during the holiday. Please use the Customer Service Department when contacting Bonaventure Property Services. During out-of-office hours, an answer phone facility will be available which will be checked on a regular basis.
The Owner or his representative shall be allowed access to the Property at any reasonable time during any holiday occupancy.
