Regulations for Your Stay with Us
Terms and conditions of sale and guidelines on conduct
CONTRACT AND BOOKING
Bookings may be made by email, on the internet, at our offices or directly on our website using our online booking system. The booking is made in the name(s) of the specified guest(s), and as such it is valid only for the guests whose name(s) appear(s) on the booking contract, along with the selected type of accommodation, the selected arrival and departure dates, the exact cost of the stay, the methods of payment to be used to confirm the booking, and the cancellation conditions.
By confirming the booking and/or the payment of the deposit/balance, the booking contract for the tourist services/packages is deemed complete, and as such it is binding. Acceptance of the booking is dependent on payment of the deposit and/or balance of the total cost of the stay. Any preferences expressed by guests in relation to the location of the accommodation are treated as such, and are not, therefore, contractually binding or able to be absolutely guaranteed, since the assignment of the accommodation takes place on site, at the exclusive discretion of the accommodation provider. The personal and contact details that you supply during booking will be used to issue a tax receipt for the amount of the stay (amount paid). Should you require a different sort of document (such as an invoice rather than a tax receipt) or should you require that the document be made out in another name, you will need to give us this information in the notes at the time of booking, because once the document has been issued it can no longer be changed.
Guests who wish to make/confirm a booking for a stay must proceed with the payment of the deposit/balance by the deadline set out in the quote, using the methods specified in the online booking or in emails from our personnel. Payments can be made by bank transfer or credit/debit card. If using a credit/debit card, payment is not taken at the same time as the booking. Once payment has been made successfully, you will receive definitive email confirmation of the completed payment. To safeguard and encrypt your credit/debit card information during the transaction, we use SSL technology. Failure to comply with the payment terms constitutes an express termination clause that may result in the termination of this agreement, without prejudice to any claims that may be made for compensation of further damages incurred by the organisation. Any failure to comply with the payment terms shall result in the loss of the quoted prices and associated benefits envisaged by the contract. Should the accommodation provider notice a difference in the rate following the communication of erroneous information at the booking stage, the payment of the outstanding balance on the booking must be paid upon arrival directly to the accommodation provider.
Alghero City Council levies a “tourist tax” on non-residents, to be paid on site at our offices. The accommodation rates shown on the price list, on the web pages and in the confirmation schedule are inclusive of VAT. Should the tourist tax be subject to variations with respect to the current 10% rate and the amount due were to increase, the difference must be paid directly on site to the accommodation provider.
