Terms & Conditions
Thank you for choosing THIRDHOME Rentals
These are the terms and conditions for the booking agreement between you and 3RD HOME LTD. (the “Company”) for the rental of a property (the “Property”). For the purposes of this agreement, “you” means, collectively, the person signing this agreement (whether electronically or as reflected below) and each of the other guests booked to stay at the Property during the rental period. The Company is an agent to the Property owner and/or the Property management company of the Property (the “Owner”).
This agreement becomes binding when submitted electronically or signed by you or once the Company has received your initial payment, whichever occurs first. You acknowledge that the Company is not and does not become a party to any contractual relationship between you and the Owner.
The Company must receive payment of 50% of the total rental fees upon confirmation of availability by the Company and the issue date of this agreement. The remaining 50% is payable no later than 60 days before your arrival at the Property. If your reservation is made less than 60 days before your arrival date, the Company must receive 100% of the total rental fees upon the issue date of this agreement, in order to secure the rental. Any late payments will be accepted only at the discretion of the Company and the Owner and may result in the cancellation of this agreement. You will not be allowed at the Property unless payment has been received in full, and, if late, only if accepted by the Company (in its sole discretion). You acknowledge that the Company acts as the limited payment collection agent for the Owner solely for the facilitation of payments in relation to booking transactions through our site.
If you must cancel this reservation, for any reason, there are no refunds available to you for any paid fees. Upon confirmation of reservation and collection of 50% (outside of 60 days of arrival) or full payment (within 60 days of arrival) of the total rental fees the reservation is binding and all payments made by you shall be non-refundable.
You must provide the Company with a valid credit card to act as collateral for any losses or damages to the Property (including its contents) during the rental period. The Company may charge such credit card up to the amount of any losses or damages. Note that the Company will notify and discuss with you before any such charge is made. If you are required to pay an additional cash security deposit (indicated in your Payment Details), you will be refunded the deposit after we receive clearance from the Owner. While this process usually takes 4-6 weeks, in a few destinations it can take several months before the Owner has cleared the payment for refund.
The individual booking the Property must be at least 25 years old at the time of the booking. Such individual must also be a traveler. All bookings made may be subject to age verification. The Company reserves the right to deny reimbursement on the deposit and/or payment of the Booking in the event of an age requirement violation.
When requested by the Owner you must provide personal photo identification for you, and for all persons travelling, as security measures differ from region to region. In the event you refuse to provide the proper identification, you hereby accept the risk of being refused access to the Property. All identification provided will remain confidential and will not be stored, transferred or used by any third party. In the event of an emergency or security alert, traveller information may be disclosed for safety purposes.
You are solely responsible for all damages, injuries and losses sustained in connection with the occupancy or use of the Property whether caused by you and/or your guests. You must ensure that the Property and all furniture, fixtures and effects remain in the same condition and location as when you checked-in.
