The agency commits itself on confirming the booking to the tenant. The booking is settled when this confirmation has been sent.

Prices always include rental and agency fees. All service charges (water, gas, electricity, oil for central heating) are extra when stated in the specifications or in the price list. Heating consumption, telephone, bank charges for transfers of payments from abroad and the 30 € agency surcharge are ALWAYS EXTRA.

The minimum guarantee is 250 €. This guarantee is normally refunded on the day of departure, once the house or flat has been checked either by the agent or the owner.
When the tenant leaves the holiday rental before or after the business hours or if he/she has neglected to make an appointment with the agent to check the house or the flat before its departure (paragraph 8), the guarantee is sent back after the agency or the owner has done this checking.
