TERMS AND AGREEMENTS
1. Please note, Puerto Viejo Rents does not own or manage any of the rentals on our website, so it’s always best to contact the owner with any questions or concerns regarding your booking.
2. Who provides the travel services? We facilitate the processing and booking of accommodation and other travel services (the "travel services"). We do not provide, own or run any travel services ourselves and in particular we do not provide, own or run any accommodation. Any listings or rankings on this Website should not be taken as an endorsement or recommendation of any particular accommodation or services by us.
We collect the deposit on behalf of the travel services provider. When you make a booking on this website you will be required to pay a deposit which we collect as agent for and on behalf of the relevant travel services provider. The travel services provider will deduct the amount of this deposit from the total charge for the booking and you will pay the balance directly to the travel services provider on arrival.
4. Transaction Fee
We also ask you to pay a transaction fee. You will also be required to pay a transaction fee to us when you make a booking. The transaction fee is non refundable. Transaction fee consist of 2.9% Paypal(for security of your card info) and the remainder administrative fees.
Sometimes we have to convert the currency that you pay in. The deposit and the transaction fee that you pay will be payable in the currency that you select as your "settlement currency" when making your booking. Where the accommodation price was uploaded by the travel services provider in a different currency, the deposit amount that you will be charged in your settlement currency will be calculated by converting the deposit price into your settlement currency using an exchange rate that we derive from a daily feed from a reputable currency conversion website.
6. No Show
Charges for "no-show". In the event of a no-show without 24 hours' notice of cancellation (or more, where required by the travel services provider's cancellation policy in its Terms and Conditions), the travel services provider has the right to charge your credit card for the first night's stay (where you have booked accommodation) or for the full price of the tour or other travel service . You should check the travel services provider's own terms and conditions for full details of their cancellation policy.
7. Online Travel Agent
We act as agent for the travel services provider – what does that mean? When you make a booking on the website, your contract for travel services (including accommodation) is with the travel services provider, NOT our website, which is acting as agent for the travel services provider. It is the travel services provider's responsibility to provide you with the travel services. We are not responsible for the fulfillment of any booking made through our website or for the quality of any accommodation or any other travel services that are booked and in particular we are not responsible for any difficulty, accident, illness or any other problem which is caused by the accommodation or other travel services or which is suffered by you or any of your party during your stay at the accommodation (and we recommend that you check the travel services provider's own Terms and Conditions for details of your rights in relation to the services they provide).
