hotel or other ground service in its capacity as agent of the relevant third party
supplier, your contract for that accommodation or service will be subject to the
supplier's terms and conditions which could limit or exclude liability to you.
No contract will come into existence until we accept your request for a booking
and receive full payment in cleared funds.
When you submit your request for a booking, you guarantee that you have the authority
to accept (and do accept) these conditions on behalf of yourself and all persons
covered by your booking. It is your responsibility to ensure that any information
given to you in connection with this booking by us, or any third party supplier,
is passed on to everyone on whose behalf you are making, or have made, the booking.
If you are making a booking for more than one person, you are responsible for all
payments due from every person for whom that booking is made. All the featured
hotels and services are subject to availability.

neither of which is covered by the price quoted on this website.

card guarantee or deposit at check-in. The deposit is refundable at the time of
