All Bookings of an Apartment are subject to these Terms.

These conditions apply to your booking of, and occupance of, the Property (as identified in the booking confirmation issued by us). "We" are Highland Coast Limited, company number 333860110 ("the Company") and we act as agent for the owner of the Property ("the Owner"). "You" are the person whose booking of the Property we have confirmed. You will ensure that all persons who occupy the Property are aware of, and shall comply with, these conditions.

The contract is formed between us when we confirm your booking (whether by email, post, fax or verbally) and these conditions, together with any special conditions in the booking confirmation, are incorporated into the contract.

Prices shown on our website may vary from time to time; we will advise you of the current price when you enquire about a booking and we will confirm this when we confirm your booking.

Your booking must be accompanied by a deposit payment of 25% of the accommodation fees. This is a non-refundable deposit unless we cancel your booking. You may cancel up to 30 days before arrival without incurring any further charges besides the non-refundable deposit. The non-refundable balance of the accommodation fees must be paid 30 days before your arrival. If a booking is made less than 30 days before your arrival, full accommodation fees are due at the time of booking. All amendments must be made 30 days before arrival.

After we have issued a booking confirmation, you must check it carefully and let us know within 7 days if it contains any errors. After this 7 day period, if you require your booking to be amended or re-invoiced for any reason, if we accept the amendment we will charge an administration fee of £10.00.

Non-payment by a due date will be treated as a cancellation of your booking but you will remain liable for payment of the full amount due. In such circumstances, credit will be given for any accommodation fees received from re-letting the Property (up to the amount you paid in respect of accommodation fees) less a £20.00 administration fee.

We accept payment by most major debit and credit cards and by bank transfer. Cheques are also accepted in respect of advance payments only. Accounts (for extras) are rendered weekly and / or departure and must be settled immediately. You may be asked for your credit card details for the purposes of a security deposit.

In the event that we require to cancel a booking, we will refund to you all the deposits and other fees you have paid to us in respect of that booking. We will use reasonable endeavours to offer you alternative accommodation and / or alternative dates. The refund of these monies discharges all our liability, and all liability of the Owner, to you in such circumstances. We will not pay any compensation or other reimbursement of any costs or expenses you may incur as a result of cancellation by us.

Check-in time is 4 p.m. on the first day of your stay (or later if we notify you of unavoidable delays) and you must vacate the Property by 10 a.m. on the last day of your stay.

You must take good care of the Property. You will be responsible for the full cost of damages or breakages and any exceptional cleaning. You will leave the Property in the same condition in which it was found on arrival (with the exception of dirty linen) and fit for occupation by the next guest. In particular, ovens, hobs and worktops must be left clean. To assist you with this, a cleaning service is available on the day of your departure at extra cost.

We reserve the right to enter the Property (without prior notice if necessary) if special circumstances or emergencies arise (e.g. If repairs require to be carried out). Damages and breakages must be reported to us immediately. We will use reasonable endeavours to repair or replace any faulty equipment but have no liability in this regard.

Your vehicles, their accessories and contents and your personal possessions are left entirely at your own risk. We accept no responsibility for any loss or damage from or to any vehicle or personal possession from any cause whatsoever.

This contract is not a tenancy agreement and does not grant you or anyone else any rights to occupy the Property other than as provided for in this contract (short-term holiday).

We accept no liability on our own part or on the part of the Owner or any other person for any losses or additional or unexpected expenses incurred as a result of scheduled transport delays, personal injury, sickness, weather, industrial action, war or act of terrorism or act of God or any other event entirely beyond our control. We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence but otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we exclude all liability for any accident, damage, loss, injury, expense or inconvenience whether to person or property which you or any other person may suffer or incur arising out of or in any way connected with your reservation of, and occupancy of, the Property or resulting from any other cause whatsoever.

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance in respect of your stay.
