Rental Terms for Guests
Last updated 18 April, 2019.
Your.Rentals is a holiday rentals service provided by Your.Rentals A/S.
This Agreement defines the terms and conditions (the “Terms” or the “Agreement”) for Guests when booking holiday homes offered by Your.Rentals for rental on third party websites (“Sales Channels”).
By making a booking, you (“Guest”) are entering into an agreement with the owner or licensed rental agent of the holiday home (“Property Manager”). YOUR.RENTALS acts as an intermediary between you and the Property Manager and shall be only liable as such. Where reference in these booking conditions is made to YOUR.RENTALS taking an action, that action is taken on behalf of the Property Manager.
The booking of holiday homes shall always be subject to these Rental Terms, which, together with the Booking Receipt form an agreement between you and the Property Manager. Any amendments to the Rental Terms shall only be valid if they are made in writing. If you choose to order or buy additional services or products from the Property Manager, or should you be provided with any additional services or products not included in the Rental Terms, such as transfers from the airport, entrance to a tourist attraction or similar, these additional services or products will represent a separate agreement between you and the Property Manager of the holiday home or the facilitator of the service/product.
Upon confirmation of your booking, you will receive by email a Booking Receipt which contains travel directions and contact details of the Property Manager to arrange check-in and key collection.
1. Rental Period
The booking receipt contains information regarding the time at which the holiday home is ready for check-in on the first day and check-out on the final day. The key will only be provided if the full rent has been paid in accordance with the booking conditions and upon presentation of the booking receipt and valid photo ID.
2.1 Age of Guests
When booking a holiday home, the Guest making the booking must be at least 21 years old.
Youth groups, meaning parties of 4 persons or more who are primarily under 21 years of age must notify the Property Manager that they are a youth group at the time of booking. The Property Manager shall be entitled to reject a group before or upon check-in if such notification is not made.
2.2 Number of Guests
At any time, the holiday home and the grounds of the property may be occupied by no more than the maximum number of Guests stated on the booking receipt. The maximum Guests number includes children regardless of their age. If you have paid for additional Guests, then the maximum Guests is the sum total of maximum Guests plus paid for additional Guests.
If the house or the property is occupied by more than the maximum number of Guests allowed, the Property Manager shall be entitled to request the additional people to vacate the holiday home without notice. If the Guest does not comply with this request within 12 hours, the Property Manager shall be entitled to terminate the rental agreement with immediate effect and to oblige all occupants to vacate the holiday home without further notice and with no refund.
3. Bookings and Payments
3.1 Instant Bookings
When your payment is accepted for a property on Instant Booking, the booking shall be immediately “confirmed” and binding.
3.2 Request Bookings
Some holiday homes are available on Request Booking where it will be stated that “the Property Manager requests 24 hours to confirm your booking”. In such a case, your payment card will be authorised for the full booking amount for a period of up to 24 hours. If the Property Manager accepts your booking request, your card will be charged and the booking shall thereafter be “confirmed” and binding. If the Property Manager declines your booking request, the payment authorisation on your card will be immediately canceled. Depending upon your bank, this payment authorisation may be removed from your account immediately or it may take up to 7 days.
3.3 Payment Instalments
Depending upon the payment policy of the Property Manager, the payment policy of the website where you made your booking and the number of days before check-in, you may be required to pay the full amount to confirm your booking, or you may be offered to pay in two instalments.
When making payment by instalments, your card will be charged the first instalment upon booking and the second instalment will automatically be charged to the same card at a time before your check-in date. The due date for your second instalment is determined by the cancellation policy of the Property Manager and communicated to you at the time of booking. In the event that we cannot charge your card the second instalment amount, we will notify you so that you can ensure we can charge your card. In the event that we are still unable to charge your card after repeated attempts, your booking will be cancelled and your deposit forfeited according to the cancellation policy applied to your booking.
Your.Rentals or the website where you made your booking will securely store your card details at the time of booking in order to charge the second instalment. Your.Rentals is a PCI DSS certified merchant and uses a world-class payment processor to securely store your card details. Your card details are never exposed nor stored on Your.Rentals servers.
3.4 Booking Receipt
When your booking has been confirmed by the Property Manager, either by way of Instant Booking or by the Property Manager’s acceptance of your Request Booking, YOUR.RENTALS will send to you by email a unique confirmation page for your booking (“Booking Receipt”). This confirmation page contains important information such as your unique Booking reference number, contact details for the Property Manager, exact address of the property, travel directions and optional extras and services that you may order from the Property Manager.
3.5 Rates, Taxes and Currency
Unless otherwise stated, all prices are in Euro (EUR) and payments for bookings will be made in Euro (EUR). Some third party websites and sales channels may convert the price into your local currency, however when the payment is processed by YOUR.RENTALS it will be charged to your card in Euro (EUR).
The rate charged includes all sales taxes and VAT. However some localities require the Property Manager to collect “tourist taxes” which are shown when you make your booking and on your Booking Receipt.
Should you be required to pay the Property Manager upon check-in for tourist taxes or for optional services that you have ordered, you will be required to pay for these in the local currency.
3.6 Payments for optional services
It may be possible to order optional services from the Property Manager from the Booking Receipt page. If you place an order for optional services, e.g. a boat, extra bed, airport transfers or internet, directly with the Property Manager and beyond the agreement which has been entered into with YOUR.RENTALS as the intermediary, you may be charged an additional amount which should be settled directly with the Property Manager. While YOUR.RENTALS provides a facility for you to order optional services from the Property Manager, we are not party to any agreement for these optional services.
All consumptions (fx. electricity, heating, water usage) are included in the Rental Rates. Your.Rentals does not allow Property Managers to charge additionally for such consumptions. In the event that you are asked to pay for consumptions while staying at the property, you should report a problem according to Section 6 below.
