11. Non Reliance of Information

11.1 The information contained on this Site may contain inaccuracies and typographical and other errors. The information on these pages may be updated from time to time and may at times be out of date. We have the right to change the prices of the accommodation arrangements featured or mentioned on this Site at any time without prior notice. If any price is obviously incorrect, neither we nor the Principals will be bound by it. We accept no responsibility for keeping the information on these pages up to date or liability for failure to do so. You must ensure you check all details of the chosen holiday or travel arrangements (including the price) at the time of booking. Neither we nor any of our third-party providers of information guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any such information, nor its merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.

11.2 Commentary and other materials appearing on our Site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

11.3 If you feel that any information appearing or posted on our Site is inaccurate, untrue or inappropriate or breaks any of the rules set out in these Terms of Use, please let us know by contacting us through the Site.

12. Suspension

12.1 We will determine, in our discretion, whether there has been a breach of these Terms of Use through your use of our Site. When a breach of this policy has occurred, we may take such action as we deem appropriate, and this may include the immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our Site.

13. Pricing

13.1 Prices displayed on accommodation pages, and special offers displayed throughout the website, are intended as a best possible guide, but do not constitute a firm offer or a guarantee of rates for any particular stay. Likewise any rates shown during the initial enquiry process (i.e. before a Principal has replied with a quote for a specific stay) are intended as a best possible guide, but do not constitute a firm offer or a guarantee of rates.

13.2 Prices are displayed in either GBP or Euros.

13.3 Quotes provided by the Principal will be made in their preferred currency. Any prices shown are based on seasonal costs supplied by the Principal.

13.4 Any outstanding balance due to the Principal, as well as any additional charges, including local taxes, that may be incurred during your stay at your chosen accommodation will be settled by you directly with the Principal in its local currency which may be subject to exchange rate fluctuations (depending on the date charged) and charges from your bank or card issuer for which we have no liability.

14. Privacy Policy

14.1 The booking information that you provide to us will be passed on only to the relevant Principal or other persons necessary for the provision of your accommodation. The information may therefore be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration authorities if required by them, or as required by law. Certain information may also be passed on to security or credit checking companies for the purposes of processing your booking. If we cannot pass this information on as above, we will be unable to provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons.

For further information please see our full Privacy Policy.

14.2 Our system includes a facility for the user to send messages to the Accommodation provider and/or the Tour organiser, and vice versa. As is common practice with all web-based messaging systems, we may monitor messages from both parties to ensure, inter alia, that they are clear and unambiguous to both parties, and that they are not offensive, defamatory or potential scams. We also reserve the right to remove either party's direct contact details from such messages, as these are provided automatically to both parties when a booking is confirmed. Providing them earlier may result in two parallel lines of communication about the same booking, which in turn may lead to confusion about its current status and other details.

15. Applicable Law

15.1 We are an English registered company. Our business and the services (as directory agent) we offer are governed by the applicable laws of England and Wales. No warranties and/or representations of any kind, express or implied, are given as to the compliance of the information shown on this Site, the services offered by or on behalf of us, any information relating to such services and/or our business in any respect with any laws of any other country. Such laws do not, in any event, affect or apply to the same.

15.2 Access to this Site is conditional on your agreement that all information contained in it and all matters which arise between you and us will be governed by English law. Access is further conditional on your agreement that any dispute or matter which arises between you and us will be dealt with by the Courts of England and Wales only to the exclusion of the Courts of any other country.

16. Governing Law and Jurisdiction

16.1 These terms and conditions are subject to English Law and the Courts of England and Wales shall have sole jurisdiction.
