On receipt of your Confirmation & Invoice, please check it carefully, particularly with regard to spelling of names which must agree with that in your passport, as any errors may incur administration charges.
Normally payment is taken at the time of booking your arrangement. However in some circumstances, we can accept a deposit with a Final Balance due as shown on your Confirmation & Invoice. This Due Date will normally be 10 weeks prior to departure. If the Confirmation & Invoice is issued less than 10 weeks before departure, the Final Balance is due immediately.
Failure to ensure that we receive cleared payment on the Due Date will result in your holiday being cancelled. The Final Balance may be paid by:
Cheque, Bank Transfers, PayPal Money transfers and credit card payments.

For complicated reservations 5 EUR, per person Booking Fee (max. 20 EUR per booking) may apply (no refundable).
To allow time for payments to clear, please allow 14 days after posting for cheque payments and 5 days after making a card transaction.
Because we act as an agent, the payment we receive will be held by us on behalf of the accommodation provider including our share of the commission and passed onto them in due course. Where the commission received by us from a supplier is insufficient to cover costs, a booking fee will have been included in the price quoted.
Prices can go up or down, but we guarantee that once you have booked the price on your booking confirmation will not change unless you make an amendment to the booking details. We reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. We will do so as soon as we become aware of the error.
Payments for extras (such as incidental charges, mini-bar charges, laundry and telephone bills or any extra nights) should be made directly to the hotel when you check out.
Please note that we shall address all correspondence and deliver travel documents to the Lead Named person on the Confirmation & Invoice who is responsible for all payments and ensuring that others named on the Confirmation & Invoice accept these conditions also. Gay2Stay.eu will not make any cancellation or amendments or enter into correspondence regarding the reservation with any other party other than the Lead Named Person.
We cannot accept any responsibility for any matters arising from a failure to advise us of changes in postal address or email address.
Passports & Visas
It is your responsibility to ensure that you and all those travelling with you have a valid passport and any necessary visa and that you have obtained any necessary vaccinations to gain entry to any country you are visiting. Airlines will not permit passengers to travel who do not have proper documentation and comply with all regulations. All passengers must be carrying a valid passport in the same name as their airline ticket. Please check Entry and Immigration Requirements if you are in any doubt about your ability to comply with the immigration requirements of the countries you will be visiting.
It is a condition of our contract with you that you have suitable insurance cover for the journey.
We aim to issue all your holiday travel and information documents at least 14 days prior to your departure. If we are unable to meet this target, we will notify you by email of any delays. Please note that for some holidays, we may issue these documents significantly in advance of this target.
It's a common fact of modern travel that hotels and airlines seek to maximise their occupancy by taking more bookings than there is space available in order to compensate for no-shows. We monitor our suppliers very closely to avoid any potential disruption to your holiday. Consequently, if we feel that there is a chance you may be inconvenienced, we will contact you as soon as we are aware of the possibility and propose alternative arrangements.
If you have a special request for anything that is not automatically part of the arrangement booked, please advise us and we will pass this information on to the companies we work with. Our note of your request on your invoice/receipt confirms we have received it and does not guarantee that we, or the relevant supplier, can meet with your request. Where possible they will try to help you, but we cannot guarantee any request unless it is noted on your invoice/receipt and we also confirm the request separately in writing. We must emphasise that, verbal confirmations of special requests cannot be taken as a guarantee that they will be met.
3. Amendments & Cancellations
In order to avoid misunderstandings, all amendments and cancellations should always be made directly at the hotel/guesthouse/lodging/airline or car rental.
Amendments to your holiday booking:
We will consider any requests from the Lead Named person to change your holiday arrangements and will use our best efforts to assist you. We may need to make a charge for this and will advise you prior to accepting your instructions. In some circumstance, it may be necessary to treat the change as a cancellation. Please note that if the number of passengers on your reservation changes, we will recalculate your holiday price to reflect the new occupancy levels. We can only accept changes that are notified in writing by fax or by post.
Cancellation by you:
If you wish to cancel your holiday, the Lead Named person must advise us in writing. We will then calculate any refunds based on the charges incurred with each individual supplier and refund any balances to you less an administration fee of €50. Cancellation is unlikely to provide refunds for the flight or transfer elements of a holiday. It is a condition of booking that you have Travel Insurance with cancellation cover in place when you book your holiday as any refunds are likely to be only a small percentage of your total holiday cost.
Changes to your holiday arrangements after departure:
If you decide to change your holiday arrangements whilst overseas you will be breaking this contract. All remaining accommodation will automatically be cancelled and we shall be unable to accept any liability for any loss, damage or other claim resulting from your holiday.
Price increases may occur any time prior to full payment being received from you, and you will be liable to pay any such increases in full.

You can cancel your booking free of charge within 24 hours of making it, provided that the booking was made more than 15 days in advance of your planned arrival date at the accommodation.
Cancellations must be made online or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by the person who made the original booking. The e-mail must contain your booking reference together with the accommodation name. If you cancel within 24 hours of booking, and outside of the 15 days prior to your arrival we will refund your deposit by re-crediting the credit or debit card with which it was paid. Cancellations are effective from the time they are received by us.
The following cancellation charges will apply for all the other periods:
