Terms & Conditions
Thank you for choosing to book with us - we hope you will enjoy your stay at Glenlockhart Cottage.
The following terms and conditions apply to your booking for a short-term holiday rental. They form the terms of a legally binding contract between Glenlockhart Estates Ltd as the Owners of Glenlockhart Cottage (referred to as “us”, “we”, “our”) and the person making the booking and all members of the holiday party (referred to as “you”, “your”, “guests”). Scottish law will govern the contract. The contract will be subject to these booking conditions, and must be complied with.
The person whose name is on the booking form (referred to as “the Responsible Person”) agrees to take full responsibility for ensuring that all the following Terms & Conditions are adhered to by all members of the party. The Responsible Person must personally stay at the accommodation throughout the holiday and be at least 25 years of age at the time of booking.
Only those persons detailed on the booking form may occupy the property. The names, addresses and ages of all members of the party must be shared with the Owners on request.
Please read the following conditions of let carefully, and ask for an explanation of any point that may be unclear to you.
When you submit a booking via our online reservation system you will receive an automatically generated booking summary by email to the email address you provide in the booking form. This does not form a contract between us. Your booking is provisional and a contract shall only arise when your booking is subsequently confirmed in writing by email from us. We aim to respond to your booking request within 24 hours. Bookings made by telephone will be held for a maximum of five working days pending receipt of a completed and signed Booking Form and the deposit/holiday payment.
Bookings are confirmed by email from us on receipt of the booking form and receiving the deposit of 30% of the holiday rental cost (minimum £350). The balance of the holiday rental cost is payable 42 days prior to the holiday rental commencement date; you will be notified by email that the balance is due.
We reserve the right to cancel a booking where payment in full has not been received 42 days before the commencement date, in which case the deposit is non-refundable. If the booking is made within 42 days of the rental commencement date, then payment will be due in full upon booking.
No entry to the property will be allowed without payment in full, and the Security Deposit being cleared beforehand. Once you have a confirmed booking (and the deposit has been paid and processed), you are responsible for the full rental costs even if you subsequently cancel. The deposit will be returned if we are unable to accept the booking.
In making a booking you accept responsibility for any theft, breakage or damage caused by you or by any member of your party or guests, and you agree to indemnify us in full for any loss that we may incur as a result. A Security Deposit of £200 will be held on the credit/debit card of the Responsible Person seven days prior to the date of arrival. For bookings made less than seven days in advance of arrival, the Security Deposit will be held from time of booking and payment in full.
The Security Deposit will be released within two days of the end of your holiday less the cost of any loss, damage, breakages or additional cleaning required.
CANCELLATION AND INSURANCE
By making your booking, our agreement is a legal contract and your deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances.
Cancellations must be immediately notified to us by email so that we can release the dates for re-booking. If we are able to re-let your dates we will refund the final letting price to you (which may be less than you paid) less the deposit and an administration fee of £50.
If we are unable to re-let you remain responsible for the full rental costs and there will be no refund under any circumstances.
Holiday Cancellation insurance is not compulsory, however we strongly recommend such insurance to protect against the cancellation penalties if you are unable to take your holiday.
NON-AVAILABILITY OF ACCOMMODATION
We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control such as fire, flood, exceptional weather conditions, epidemics, destruction/damage to the property (“force majeure”). In this circumstance, you will be refunded all monies paid by you up to that point. If we have to terminate your holiday early for any of the above reasons we will refund part of the booking fee pro rata based on the time remaining of the booking. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund. No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.
As far as the law allows, Glenlockhart Estates, its employees and representatives shall not be liable to you or your party for injury sustained, loss or damage to any belongings, additional expense incurred or inconvenience during their stay at Glenlockhart Cottage.
The owners accept no liability for accident, injury, loss or damage sustained by any guests, their family, visitors, vehicles or personal effects however caused, unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves or our employees or contractors whilst acting in the course of employment.
