1.7. Terms of provision of services
The Portals provide information on accommodation bookings and other services, providing the User with the possibility of making their reservation online.
The descriptions and conditions of the bookings offered by Different Travel S.L.U. at any given time are stated on the Portals. This includes those for services considered package bookings, which will depend in each case on the elements involved in the package in question.
When making a booking on any of the Portals, the User accepts the prevailing conditions at that time. Should you not agree, do not make any booking. A copy of these Terms and Conditions can be printed for future reference.
Prices are displayed on the Portals depending on the search criteria entered (stay, number of people, board basis, etc.), including VAT or other applicable similar taxes. City tax or local taxes are not included and will be payable directly to the hotel (price per person and night will be determined by the local authorities). All prices will be paid in Euros, except for direct payments to the hotel, which will take place in the local currency. In these cases the price will depend on the current exchange rate at the time the payment takes place. Unless otherwise stated, any other additional services such as visas, insurance, tips or anything not expressly included, will be paid separately.
It will be understood that the service has been provided, from the moment the User finishes the booking process and receives the confirmation, as explained in the following section. As from that moment, the User will have no right of withdrawal, under the terms established in Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the Consolidated Text of the General Law for the Protection of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws. Nevertheless, the User may cancel or withdraw the booking. However, in this case the cancellation fees stated in the contracting process, both during the booking process and in the voucher and confirmation email, will apply.
Additionally, the User will forfeit the total amount paid to Different Travel S.L.U. when making the booking, or that has been paid in advance, or a payment will be taken by the hotel or corresponding service provider in those cases in which the User does not show up at the place, date and time agreed for the service to be provided, without having previously cancelled the booking by the established procedure – a no-show.
Different Travel S.L.U. will inform you, where appropriate, of specific cancellation and no-show policies that may apply.
For accommodation bookings, once check-in has taken place, in case of early departure the hotel is entitled to bill 100% of the stay initially booked, exempting Different Travel S.L.U. from any liability.
Some bookings may include a gift or extra services (ski passes, tickets, etc.) for which you need to print a specific voucher, which you will receive as an attachment to your confirmation email. The cancellation of the booking also implies the cancellation of these gifts or extra services included in your booking, which you will no longer be entitled to use.
A hotel may or may not accept group bookings, whether they have been made in one reservation or in several. Any booking of 5 or more rooms or 10 or more people for similar dates, can be considered a group booking. If and when the hotel accepts the booking, specific conditions to be advised by the hotel may apply.
It is necessary to always hand over the printed voucher for both the accommodation and other extra services, if any.
As what we offer is a service, product warranties under consumer regulations are not applicable.
How our price match works.
- For us to be able to price match, the User needs to have a booking confirmed on one of our Portals than can still be cancelled/amended free of charge.
- Non-refundable bookings are definite, they do not allow any changes or cancellation and, therefore, we cannot price match or apply any further discounts.
- The User who has confirmed a booking on one of our Portals has 24 hours* from receiving the confirmation email to inform us they have seen that same booking with the same conditions – same hotel, same kind of room, same meal plan and same cancellation policy – for a lower price on another online travel agency.
- In order to prove this, the User will send an email to [email protected] including a screenshot of the booking found for a lower price on another portal or an alternative way of proving so, along with the conditions of that booking, which must be the same as the one made on one of our Portals. Different Travel S.L.U. will check that the booking found is still available, that its price is lower and that the conditions are the same.
- In the event of proving our Portal’s price not being the lowest, according to the above conditions, Different Travel S.L.U. will match the price. In the event of the booking conditions being different, Different Travel S.L.U. will offer a more competitive option.
- We will not price match in the following situations: if the rate of the booking found with a lower price is wrong; if on the website it does not say the name of the property; if the price offered is subject to special conditions (discounts, members’ prices, loyalty programmes, etc.).
- *NB We offer 24 hours to contact us taking into account the frequency with which hotel rates change (both up and down). It is the estimated time we take to updated our prices to improve them.
In those cases when the contracted service receives the consideration of a package booking, the specific legislation (Book IV of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the Consolidated Text of the General Law for the Protection of Consumers and Users and other complementary law) will apply. In such cases, cancellation of the contract on the User's behalf will imply the obligation to pay the cancellation fees specified in the contracting process, as well as a penalty. The amount will depend on how far in advance the cancellation of the trip is communicated:
- Between 15 and 10 days before the check-in date, a 5% penalty of the total price will apply.
- Between 10 and 3 days before the check-in date, a 15% penalty of the total price will apply.
- During the 48 hours prior to the check-in date, a 25% penalty of the total price will apply.
In a package booking, the User may transfer their booking for free to a person who meets all the conditions required thereof. In order to do so, the cession must be communicated in writing to Different Travel S.L.U. at least 15 days prior to the date of the trip. In any case, the assignee must meet the same requirements as the assignor, generally required for package bookings, and both will jointly and severally be liable to Different Travel S.L.U. for the payment of the trip and any additional costs justified by the assignment.
You may direct any questions or address any complaints regarding the services through the contact means of Different Travel S.L.U. provided in these Terms and Conditions.
1.8. Conclusion of the contract
The information provided in the Portals is not an offer, but an invitation to make a booking. By clicking on ‘Confirm booking’ it is considered that the User has placed an order, has accepted these Terms and Conditions and is obliged to pay the corresponding amount. Different Travel S.L.U. will confirm the services booked and the conditions thereof both on screen and by sending an email to the User (check your spam folder or any similar ones to ensure that you receive it). You will be informed in the same way, if the booking cannot be confirmed or honoured for any reason. In the case of package bookings, said confirmation will include the written contract with the corresponding elements. Should the booking not be confirmed, the period during which the User may demand confirmation will be stated.
The contract will only be considered concluded once this confirmation has been sent.
If the contract is considered not concluded or the booking cannot be not honoured pursuant to the above and the User had already made any payments, Different Travel will reimburse the User fully.
The vouchers or any other documents necessary to enjoy the booked service will be emailed together with the confirmation email.
Different Travel S.L.U. will keep, for each transaction, an electronic copy of the conditions applicable to the transaction. However, the User may retain their own copy of the conditions applicable to each transaction.
For group bookings (more than 5 rooms or 10 people for similar dates and whether they have been made in one single reservation or in several), the hotel reserves itself the right to confirm or reject the bookings. Once confirmed, they may have different specific payment conditions to be advised by the property. In this case, the acceptance of your order is subject to the relevant hotel confirming it and advising the conditions.
It is possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services offered on the Portals are mispriced. If the price of a service is higher than the price displayed on our Portal, we will inform you in order to take the appropriate measures. If the mistaken price is a manifest error, which is unquestionable and could have reasonably been detected as an error, we will not be obliged to supply the service at the incorrect price, even if the booking has been confirmed.
In the case of package bookings, the User is required to report any breach of contract performance, in writing, to Different Travel S.L.U. and to the provider of the service. The User is also informed that the limitation of actions period for non-execution or poor execution of a package booking contract is two years.
