HOLIDAY LETTING - TERMS AND CONDITIONS

RAINE & HORNE MOLLYMOOK MILTON - 91 Princes Highway, MILTON (PO Box 480)

02 4455 3800

Please read carefully the following conditions before signing your Guest Registration Form. The terms and conditions of the holiday letting as agreed to by both parties are as follows:

Deposit: 50% of the total booking amount is payable by credit card upon booking OR within 2 days via mail or bank deposit. Only the receipted deposit together with completed Guest Registration Form creates an agreement. Credit cards attract a 1% fee.

Final Payment: The balance of the booking is to be paid 30 days prior to arrival by cheque, bank deposit or credit card. This is essential and will be deducted from your credit card unless prior arrangements have been made in writing. By not paying in full within the allocated time may result in cancellation of your booking.

Security Deposit: Will be held against your credit card until inspection of the vacated premises. If no damage has occurred, or no extra cleaning required or extra rubbish removal, your security deposit will be released and your card details disposed of.

Cancellations: Must be in writing. A cancellation fee of $100 will apply under ANY and ALL circumstances.
1. If the property is relet for the total period, only the cancellation & booking fee will apply and the deposit refunded.
2. If the property is NOT relet for the total period THERE WILL BE NO REFUND.

COVID Cancellations: All bookings that are made during the pandemic are done so with the knowledge and understanding of the State Governments restrictions and knowing that at any time, further restrictions may be put in place. It is the responsibility of the person making the booking to seek and understand this information by visiting the Australian Government website www.health.gov.au.

Therefore, if a Government mandated lock down is in place and you do not cancel your booking at least 3 weeks prior to your arrival date you will forfeit all monies held for your booking.
We are implementing this clause due to the increasing number of guests deciding to cancel their bookings at the last available opportunity, thus preventing us from being able to rebook the property and reclaim money lost in bookings for our landlords.

During this period, transfers of your booking to a later date will not be accepted unless the property is rebooked for the full period of your booking.

For guests who wish to cancel their booking for any reason other than a Government mandated lockdown, the usual cancellation policy applies.

STRICTLY NO SCHOOLIES AND NO PARTY POLICY
