BEST PRICE GUARANTEE

Terms & Conditions: The advantage of booking with us is our guarantee that you are booking the best publicly available price existing online at the time of booking. If you find a lower price online, we will give you your first night free, as well as price match the remaining nights of your stay.

This guarantee is based on the Price of the exact room type available on a Travel Agent Website, as compared to the Price of the same room type available online via our Direct Booking Channel at time of booking. This guarantee does not apply to any existing bookings of Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartments. The lower price room that has been located on the travel agent website must match the exact room type, minimum night requirement, inclusions and number of guests (etc.) being booked as it is stated on Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartments direct booking channel.

The Best Price Guarantee applies only to prices both advertised and available to the general public online on a travel agent website at the time of booking. The Guarantee does not apply to prices offered on a membership program; corporate discounts; negotiated prices; group, rewards program, loyalty programme, incentive, prices obtained via auction or similar process; or prices available only by using a coupon or other promotion offered by the online Travel Agent. The Guarantee also does not apply if the average nightly lower price is obtained from a website where you call to get the price, or from an e-mail that you received.

Verification of Claims. All claims are subject to verification by Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartment. Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartments must be able to verify all elements of the claim and the required terms found on the online travel agent website website at the time the claim is processed and verify that both the room price and the total room cost at the time of verification are lower than those found on Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartments website.

Changes to these Terms and the Guarantee. Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartments reserves the right to modify, restrict availability, or discontinue the Best Price Guarantee and to make changes to these Terms and Conditions, at any time, for any or no reason, and without prior notice or liability to you. Terrigal Sails Serviced Apartments Best Price Guarantee Terms and Conditions that are in effect at the time of your booking will determine your eligibility under the Best Price Guarantee.

CANCELLATION POLICY Off Peak

A non-refundable deposit of $25 is required to guarantee all bookings, and on check in we will require payment of Balance owing. We will also require presentation of a Drivers License or Passport on your arrival. If you wish to cancel or amend your reservation please do so 72 hours prior to check in, otherwise a cancellation fee of one nights accommodation will be incurred. For no shows, cancellations and amendments made after check in time, the full booking amount will be forfeited.

CANCELLATION POLICY Peak Period

Period 20 Dec 13 Jan, long weekends and public holidays maintain a 14 day cancellation policy, and a non-refundable deposit of the first night's accommodation is required to guarantee all bookings. Full payment is required 14 days prior to arrival, and Terrigal Sails will automatically charge your credit card. For cancellations and amendments within 14 days prior to arrival, the full booking amount is forfeited.

REASONS FOR POLICY

Our Hotel Policies are in place to ensure that guests are made completely aware of our guiding principles when confirming a booking at our Hotel. While we always regret the necessity to impose charges upon guests who do not use the accommodation, we have found it necessary to implement these charges in the event of a cancellation in the hope that it will encourage guests to assist us in advising of any travel changes at an early time to allow us to relet the room with minimal loss.
We believe that our cancellation policy is more generous than most particularly in our offer of accommodation credit in a number of circumstances. Our cancellation policy has also been necessary to allow us to maintain our policy of not over booking in the hotel in busy periods, as is the case of the major hotels to cover the "no shows", as we prefer to be able to guarantee our confirmed guests their room on the day. Securing your reservation with a credit card means that you accept the terms of our Cancellation Policy and these policies are set out in our agreement with you and available on our Hotel Website. However, in special circumstances, solely at the management's discretion, you may be offered such amount as a credit for subsequent accommodation charges.

We hope that you will understand the basis of our policy and to keep us informed of your plans to avoid any unnecessary charges.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

We suggest that you consider travel insurance to cover any losses incurred if unforseen circumstances force you to alter your travel plans.
