Bookings For You Ltd acts as an Agent supplying Accommodation, on behalf of property owners in Italy and France. Our responsibility to you is to take reasonable care in selecting the accommodation supplied. Your contract will be with the Property Owner. These Booking Conditions will apply to that contract.
Bookings For You Ltd is a sales agent acting on behalf of the accommodation provider. By proceeding with your booking you confirm that you accept our terms and conditions as they set out our respective rights and obligations.
All bookings are subject to these terms and conditions.
1. Your Holiday Contract
When you make a booking as Party Leader, you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party these terms and conditions. You must be at least 18 years old to make a booking with us. Your contract with Bookings For You is made with us on the earliest of either: a) The Party Leader tells us that you would like to accept our written or verbal quotation and you pay us a deposit (or if within 9 weeks of departure, you make full payment); or b) We issue you with a booking confirmation that will confirm the details of your booking and will be sent to you via email.
Your contract will be governed by English Law and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts at all times.
2. Your Personal Details
Bookings For You is not the owner of the accommodation booked and is required to provide personal details of the Party Leader and party members to which you consent.
3. Paying For Your Holiday
At the time of booking, you will be required to pay a deposit of up to 30% of the total rental price, dependent on the particular property. The booking deposit of up to 30% of the total holiday price must be paid to Bookings For You before the holiday booking can be confirmed. The deposit is payable via Credit or Debit card, Bank Transfer, Cheque or Paypal at the time of booking.
The balance of the holiday is paid via Credit or Debit card, Bank Transfer or Paypal and must be received at least 9 weeks before the holiday start date.
If the balance is not paid to Bookings For You at least 9 weeks before the holiday start date, Bookings For You reserves the right to cancel the holiday contract. In these circumstances, the booking deposit will not be refunded.
Please check your confirmation invoice, final itinerary and all other documents you receive from us, immediately on receipt. You must contact us immediately if any information appears to be incorrect as it may not be possible to make changes later and it may harm your rights if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document in a reasonable period of time (taking into account the date of your departure) and in any event no later than 7 days. If you cancel or alter your bookings later on, you may have to pay an amendment charge. We reserve the right to refuse your booking. if we do this, we will refund any money already paid to us.
5. If You Change Your Booking
If, after the confirmation invoice has been issued, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example, your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do out utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from the Party Leader. Where we can meet a request, changes may be subject to payment of an administration fee based on our increased costs as a result of applicable rate changes and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers. You will be notified of the amount of the fee before you choose to proceed with any change. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking, we will treat this as a cancellation by you.
if one of your party withdraws from the holiday, someone else can take their place providing they satisfy the conditions of the original booking, and you inform us in writing at least 14 days before departure. The Party Leader must sign the letter.
6. If You Cancel Your Holiday
To cancel the entire holiday, the Party Leader must write to us directly, by recorded delivery at the address on your booking confirmation. Cancellation takes effect on the day we receive your letter. If you cancel after you confirm your booking, you must compensate us for losses as we incur costs from the moment you make the booking. The closer your cancellation is to the departure date, the less likely we are to recover the costs by re-selling the holiday at the original price. Our cancellation charge therefore increases as the departure date approaches, as shown below.
If you have to cancel for a reason covered by your insurance policy, any losses must be claimed directly from the relevant insurance company. Claims must be made directly to the insurance company concerned.
The following cancellation charges apply:
More than 9 weeks prior to departure – deposit
63-0 days prior to departure – 100% of the cost of your holiday
We both acknowledge the ongoing COVID-19 global crisis and accept our obligations to comply with any official guidance from governments or local authorities, both in the UK and whilst in destination.
We will have no liability for any refunds, compensation, costs, expenses or other losses of any kind incurred by you (including, where applicable, the cost of medical treatment), in the following circumstances:
(i) If you, or anyone in your booking party, test positive for Covid-19 and have to quarantine for a period of time, or are notified or otherwise become aware that you have, or suspect you may have, come into close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 (or where they otherwise suspect they may have Covid-19) and have to self-isolate for a period of time. If this happens within 14 days of your departure date, you must contact us as you may no longer be able to travel. We will offer you the following options where possible and subject to availability:
(a) Postponing your booking to a later date. We will notify you of any impact to the price the postponement may have (please note that you may have to pay full cancellation charges on some elements of your booking, such as the flight, as well any increase in cost imposed by other suppliers);
(b) If not everyone in the booking is affected, you will have the right to transfer your place on the booking to another person nominated by you, subject always to the requirements of clause 5;
(c) Cancelling your booking, in which case our standard cancellation charges shall apply as of the date we receive notice of cancellation from the lead name. You may be able to claim these charges back from your travel insurance.
If this happens whilst you are in destination, please notify us without delay and we will provide such reasonable assistance as we can in the circumstances. However, we will not be responsible for covering the cost of any curtailment of your booking, missed transport arrangements, additional accommodation required (either in the UK or in destination, prior to your departure), or other associated costs incurred by you. You must ensure you have travel insurance which covers these costs.
(ii) You fail any tests, checks or other measures imposed by a supplier, airline, port or airport, border control authority or other government body or local authority or fail to submit for testing or assessment when requested to do so and, as such, you are denied entry to board the flight, entry to the destination, access to the services or you are otherwise unable to proceed with your booking, or that portion of your booking.
8. If We Change or Cancel Your Holiday

Compensation will not be payable if we are forced to cancel or change your travel arrangements because of circumstances beyond our control (“Force Majeure”).

In the event that a Force Majeure event results in you having to stay at the accommodation longer than you have booked for, we will endeavor to arrange for you to stay at the accommodation at the pro rata rate at which you booked.
