If you make a booking with La Finca del Castillo Arabe, a binding contract will come into existence when we issue and send you a written confirmation of booking. Your contract with us will be governed by Spanish law and subject to the jurisdiction of the Spanish courts of law. The contract is made with the person named on the Confirmation of Booking, who must be over 18, and who is deemed responsible for informing all members of the party about all matters relating to the booking.
Bookings will be confirmed on receipt of the appropriate deposit payment (or faxed or e-mailed proof of bank transfer thereof). Upon receipt of the appropriate deposit payment, a Confirmation of Booking will be issued by La Finca del Castillo Arabe detailing the total cost of the booking, the amount paid and how much remains to be paid (final payment).
The final payment must be paid four weeks before commencement of the holiday. If it is not paid on time we reserve the right to cancel the booking, retain the deposit and apply cancellation charges as described below.
We will absorb the the first 2% of any cost increase caused by currency fluctuations or taxation rate changes, including IVA (VAT), but thereafter a surcharge may be made. If the surcharge represents more than 5% of the holiday price then you may cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid.
Any cancellation must be notified to us in writing (this includes e-mail) by the person who has contracted the holiday. If such notification is received more than 28 days before the holiday commencement date, only the deposit will be retained by us. Otherwise the following charges apply, which are based on the expenses and charges suffered by us as a result of cancellation: 21-28 days before, 50%; 15-21 days before 75%; 14 days or less, 100%.
Please note that we very strongly recommend that all members of the holiday party obtain appropriate travel and personal insurance cover.
It may very occasionally be necessary for La Finca del Castillo Arabe to cancel bookings. In such an event we will refund all monies paid in full.
If you wish to alter or amend the booking, we will always do our best to comply with the request. However, changes of dates of bookings may be treated as cancellations and such amendments may be subject to additional charges. Occasionally a change may have to be made by us to confirmed arrangements after a booking has been made. If a major change becomes necessary which we consider could seriously affect the enjoyment of the holiday, we will give you the option of accepting the changed arrangements or a cancellation of the booking with full refund of all monies paid.
Under no circumstances may more than the maximum number of persons (including children) as stated in the accommodation description occupy the property, except by prior written agreement with us. Failure to observe this condition is deemed to constitute a cancellation of the booking by you and La Finca del Castillo Arabe. We reserve the right to refuse admittance or terminate the booking and apply the appropriate cancellation charges.
