Reservations for short-term holiday accommodation are accepted by SE Queensland Holiday Homes Pty Ltd Trading as Toowoomba Holiday Rentals (THR) ABN 72 626 901 657 of 74 Mackenzie Street, Mount Lofty, QLD 4350 (“the Booking Agent”) as agent for the Owner of the Property and to which bookings the following terms and conditions shall apply.
Changes to Holiday Bookings
Where possible, THR will accept certain changes to a booking after a booking has been confirmed with a deposit. Changes such as moving from one property to another after the final payment has been made will only be possible under exceptional circumstances. In such cases and administration fee of $50.00 may be charged.
Cancellations & Prepayment
Guest will be charged a deposit of 20% at the time of booking, with the balance due 2 weeks before arrival.
Guests who cancel at least 14 days before check-in will be refunded 100% of the amount that they have paid.
Guests who cancel less than 14 days before check-in will be offered a refund subject to our ability to re book the house.
It may also be possible to change the date of the booking, rather than cancelling, subject to availability.
The Booking Agent recommends that the Guest takes out comprehensive holiday cancellation and protection insurance with a reputable insurance company to cater for any unforeseen circumstances which may arise including accident, ill health or any other matters beyond the Guest’s reasonable control, as once the booking is within the 14 days of arrival the Guest will be responsible for payment of the full rental whether or not occupation of the Property occurs.
The Guest acknowledges that the Booking Agent acts as a booking agent for the Owner only and not as a principal. The contract for accommodation shall not be effective until the Booking agent sends the Guest written confirmation of the booking (via email). The rental contract is between the Guest and the Owner of the Property for which the accommodation booking is made and is subject to the terms and conditions herein.
Once a Guest’s booking has been confirmed, the Guest shall be responsible for payment of the total price for th rental period and all extras (if any) as shown on the confirmation notice email on or before the date or dates referred to in such notice.
The accommodation booking will not be confirmed by the Booking Agent until the Guest’s deposit payment is received and cleared. If the accommodation booking is made within 14 days of the date of commencement of the Guest’s proposed holiday, the full rental payable for the Property is required, together with credit card information and $300 Security Bond. The deposit is calculated at 20% of the full booking fee.
Final Payment and $300 Security Bond
The full amount payable in respect of the Property rental shall be paid at least 14 days prior to the date of commencement of the booking. If the full payment has not been received by the Booking Agent at least 14 days prior to the start of the rental period, then the Booking Agent and the Owner reserve the right to cancel the booking without notice and the Guest will forfeit the Guest’s deposit which will be non-refundable in such circumstances.
At the time of the final payment a Security Bond of $300 will also be required via credit card, which will be refunded within 7 days of departure from the property.
