General conditions

Guests making bookings are required to accept these BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS

RENTALS:

The Glasgow Collection (The Company ) advertises apartments (‘properties’) as owner of all the properties. All properties are managed to ensure that they meet the high standards of accommodation on which the Company’s reputation is based. At the time of publishing, the properties are furnished and equipped as described in the detailed and technical descriptions provided to renters and guests (‘Clients’) on the Company’s web site. From time to time the Company may change the layout, furniture or fittings and the Company will seek to update these on the website at the earliest opportunity and notify renters if the changes to the property change the nature of the accommodation. Differences between the description and photos on the website and those actually found at the property do not constitute a basis for cancellation, refunds or other claims against the Company.

Prices and seasons published on the Company’s website are indicative and subject to variation without notice prior to the confirmation of a booking. A quote will be provided at the time of inquiry and the confirmation of the booking will occur when the total payment has been paid and the confirmation of booking form is issued. The base currency of referral is the £ POUNDS. 

Rental prices include nightly rate of the property and such other inclusions that are listed in the special notes for each property listed under the price list in the property pages. 

PAYMENTS:

The booking is not confirmed until you not receive a confirmation from the Company. The Company accepts all credit card and debit cards except American Express. Full payment of the rental price is payable on booking and confirmation will not be effected until the whole of the payment has been received. The Company will provide an invoice upon request. The Company will not enter into correspondence in the event that the full payment is not received within the hold (option) period and the property is allocated to another Client; however, the Company will do its utmost to find a replacement property acceptable to the Client.

Payment by credit card or debit card are not subject to any commission.  

CANCELLATION:

Cancellation is effected by the Client when written notification is acknowledged to have been received by the Company. Should the Client for whatever reason cancel the booking, they will have the right to reimbursement of all money paid subject to the deduction of cancellation charges. Cancellation charges are based on the total rental price and are calculated from the date of the beginning of the rental period as follows:

Period before beginning of rental within which written cancellation is receivedAmount of cancellation charge shown as a percentage of the property rental price
Up to 7 days prior to arrival date100% refund
Less than 7 days prior to arrival date100% charge – no refund
No show100% charge – no refund

Changes to booking dates, or properties constitute an extra fee (subject to availability). 

Clients are strongly advised to take out adequate insurance to ensure that they are protected from unforeseen events which may give rise to cancellations. 

HOUSE SUBSTITUTION: 

If as a result of a serious breakdown or failure in the rented property, or the Company decides that it is not possible to continue with the booking, the Company will do its utmost to find a replacement property acceptable to the Client, or refund any moneys paid on unused rental. The Client acknowledges that in this event, the Company’s liability for damages will be limited to the amount of unused rental, based on a pro rata calculation of unused rental days. Should a property become unserviceable prior to the arrival of a Client, the Company will do its best to find a suitable replacement property of an equal standard. In the event of a more expensive property being selected, Clients will have the choice of paying the difference or receiving a full refund of monies paid.

ARRIVALS AND CONDUCT: 

Assuming full payment has been made Clients will be issued with arrival instructions for the property. In the weeks leading up to the arrival the Company will request name and contact details, expected arrival time, method of transport, a photograph of the passport / driving licence of the booker and a photograph of the credit / debit card used to make the booking as part of the “Wishbox pre check in process”. If the pre check in process is not completed the access code to the key box will not be provided. Upon successful pre check in, an arrival email will be send with detailed instructions for check in including the code to open the keybox. You will have one set of keys to the apartment. If you lose the key the compensation fee is £40. You can smoke outside the apartment. There will be a minimum fee of £100 for cleaning if smoking inside occurs. 

The Client acknowledges that the following circumstances provide the Company with a basis for the immediate termination of the rental agreement without recourse by the Client and forfeiting all moneys paid to the Company:
