PRELIMINARY CONDITIONS TO USE THE WEBSITE AND SERVICES
The following conditions apply to all bookings of travel services made by you through this website.
(1) Making a reservation
On making a reservation, you shall pay a non-refundable guarantee deposit (being a fixed percentage — usually 10% — of the total value of your reservation) together with a flat reservation service fee (usuallyUSD$2.00 per reservation). You will also be responsible to the travel services provider for payment of the balance of the cost of the travel services booked by you, the payment of any additional services subsequently contracted with the travel services provider, including service charges, surcharges, and any taxes pursuant to the terms and conditions of trade applied by such travel service provider.
You must use a credit card or debit card to guarantee a reservation. By making a reservation with your credit card or debit card, you agree that in the event that you cancel your reservation less than 24 hours from your agreed check-in time or if you fail to arrive by your agreed check-in time, you authorise the travel services provider to charge your credit card or debit card, without further consultation to you, an amount not exceeding the fee for one night accommodation or such an amount as may be set out in the service provider’s terms and conditions in the case of a non-accommodation product. Your non-arrival by the agreed check-in time, without previous notice, will result in the cancellation of your entire reservation.
Any amendments to your reservation must be notified to, dealt with, and agreed by the travel services provider directly.
In making a reservation, it is your responsibility to disclose to the travel services provider any physical or mental limitations and conditions that may affect you or any member of your party in any way that the travel services provider should be notified or consulted upon the requirement of special arrangements or facilities.
(2) When a reservation is confirmed
MC WEB Management will issue the booking confirmation on behalf of the travel services provider for each reservation, but does not undertake to include charges for additional services or details of the service charge or taxes charged by the travel services provider.
MC WEB Management strongly recommends that you review and confirm with the travel services provider, the precise terms and conditions upon which the travel services provider makes the reserved service available to you upon receipt of the booking confirmation.
You must quote the reservation numbers found on your booking confirmation in all enquiries, cancellations or modifications pursued with the travel services provider.
MC WEB Management does not undertake any responsibility for cancellations made by you or by the travel services provider, regardless of the circumstances in which the cancellation is made.
MC WEB Management shall not accept any liability for losses, additional expenses, or any claim whatsoever due to changes in accommodation or other travel services due to sickness, natural disasters, weather, wars, strikes, or any cause whatsoever.
