Ordering and payment
The booking advance payment must be made within 5 days of the receipt of confirmation for the lease, 30% of the total amount. The remaining balance must be paid no later than 60 days prior to the first day of rental. In the case that the remaining amount (70%) is not paid in time, the booking will be automatically canceled and the advance is not reimbursed. Upon payment confirmation, you are in agreement with details and conditions of the lease.
You can choose to pay through your bank with a bank transfer (without charge), or you have the option to pay for your holiday home rental with your credit card. When you pay with a credit card, you always have a guarantee for reimbursement if, for example the company would go bankrupt.
During the final payment, BLUE SUMMER HOMES will issue and mail you a proof of rental agreement between the tenant and the owner, which must be presented upon arrival at the property. The rental agreement will be received approximately one month before departure. The rental agreement contains information on how you will arrive to the premises along with the mobile phone number of our representative on the spot. If there are errors on the rental agreement, or specific agreements are not included, this must be mentioned upon receipt of the rental agreement.
Cancellations and changes
A signed lease can be terminated until 60 days before arrival date. Only a written cancellation can be accepted. Upon termination until 60 days before rental start, the advanced amount paid will be lost (30% of the price). Upon termination or modification of the lease later than 60 days prior to arrival date, the lease is considered as void and the total rent will be lost.
Late arrival or earlier departure according to what is stated in the rental agreement must be communicated to BLUE SUMMER HOMES. This is not included in the refund policy and there will be not provided any kind of refund. Any changes in travel times must be notified to BLUE SUMMER HOMES.
Arrival at the holiday home is usually between the hours 14:00 and 20:00. If you already know that your arrival will be later than agreed, please inform us. Not all holiday homes provide the possibility of arrival after 20.00. Please contact us if you know you are arriving late. In case of sudden delay, it is important that you immediately notify directly the property owner. Departure is normally no later than 10:00, where final cleaning is taking place and the accommodation must be left in the tidy condition you found it.
The landlord will charge a deposit on the spot, paid in cash on arrival (amount on the price list). The deposit is refunded on departure.
