Terms & Conditions for property rental with Blue Grenadines
Our policy is to be as flexible & helpful as possible
Bookings are confirmed when a 50% deposit is paid and confirmation has been sent by email to the guest by the Blue Grenadines team. The remaining balance of 50% is due 8 weeks prior to the rental period. Therefore, if a booking is made with 8 weeks or less until the rental period, Blue Grenadines will ask for the FULL rental payment upon booking. Once Blue Grenadines has also received the bank/wire transfer or a signed credit card payment, the booking is fully secured. A credit card authorisation form provided by Blue Grenadines must be provided with a valid credit or debit card, which is valid for the period of the booking and 8 weeks beyond the check out date.
On approval the property owner agrees to hold the dates for the guest and in return the guest agrees the payments will be provided at each stage and understands the following terms;
1. Reservations will be held for 5 days after the invoice date. Payment options include wire transfer or credit card (please note there will be a 5% surcharge for credit card payments). Wire transfer may incur additional bank charges which need to be paid at source by the Guest.
2. This invoice excludes security / damage deposit payment. If property owner requires a deposit to be made, this will be arranged separately with property owner and guests.
3. Cancellation Policy. In the event of cancellation after payments have been made, every effort will be made to re-book the property. An admin fee of 20% of the full rental fee will apply. In the unlikely event that the property is not re-booked, then the full rental fee is non-refundable.
Bank fees deducted by the Guests bank are not covered by Blue Grenadines. Charges incurred for dishonoured cheques etc will be passed onto the guest. All prices quoted include or clearly state VAT & any Government Taxes where applicable at current rates.
Tips are at the discretion of the guest for staff services and are always appreciated.
Please assume all of our properties are non-smoking. Please do also remember that it is illegal to smoke cannabis.
