The contract is not effective until the required payment has been received and confirmation sent from the Owner to the Guest.
The Agent does not accept liability for any act, neglect or default on the part of persons not within their employ or otherwise under their control, nor for any accident, damage, loss, injury, expense or inconvenience, whether to person or property, which the Guest or any other person may suffer or incur arising out of, or in any way connected with the occupation. In addition, Clos A Jaon accepts no liability for loss of or damage to the Guests personal possessions (including pets) on the owners' property or land.
Clos A Jaon accepts no responsibility for personal injury to, or death of any Guests, or for other matters over which Clos A Jaon has no control, except to the extent such personal injury or death is caused by negligence or wilful default of Clos A Jaon.
3. The Holiday
This agreement is made on the basis that the Property is to be occupied by the Guest for a holiday only and the Guests acknowledge that the license granted by this agreement is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy will arise when it ends.
Bookings cannot be accepted from persons under the age of 18 years. Group bookings of single sex parties (Hen/Stag parties) are not allowed unless special arrangements are made with Clos A Jaon (Extra safety deposits may be required).
5. Authority to Sign
The 'Guest' who completes the booking form procedure, whether over the telephone, in writing or on line, is deemed the legal signatory. The Guest certifies that he/she is authorised to sign the Booking Form on behalf of all persons who will occupy the property during the period for which he/she has booked and that they, including those substituted or added at a later date, are aware of the Booking Conditions. A booking is confirmed by payment of deposit and constitutes acceptance of the booking conditions and the advertised price. Clos A Jaon reserves the right to decline any booking or to refuse to hand over a key to any person who is not considered suitable, or who has not complied with the booking conditions.
Rentals are for a maximum of 4 weeks and commence strictly at 4.00 pm on the start day of the holiday. The property must be vacated by 10.00 am on the day of departure.
The number of persons occupying a property must not exceed the maximum stated in the current property description (babies who do not occupy a bed are not counted as a member of a party). Occupation of the property by more than the permitted number of Guests will be deemed a termination of the booking, resulting in forfeit of payments and vacation of the property.
7. Bookings & Deposits
A deposit of 25% of the cost of the holiday ("Deposit") must accompany the booking request plus the Booking Fee. Any bookings made within 6 weeks of the start of the
holiday will require full payment at the time of booking.
The Booking Fee is payable per booking and together with the Deposit, is non-refundable unless the Manager is unable to accept the booking.
Where the property being rented has optional extras, they are listed in the property details and will be charged at the rates shown.
A holiday booking is a legally binding contract and the Deposit paid upon booking is accepted in part payment for the holiday property. In the event of a cancellation for any reason, the Guest will become liable for the full cost of the holiday.
8. Damage to the Property
It is a requirement that the Guest has suitable holiday insurance in place to cover the stay in the property for the entire party, for any accidental damage to the property and its contents. By completing and paying for the booking the Guest confirms they have a policy that covers accidental damage to the booked holiday property and contents by any of the party.
9. Final Payments
The balance of the booking is payable 6 weeks before the start of the holiday. The balance due date can be found on the confirmation form. If the balance is not received within 7 days of the due date, Clos A Jaon reserves the right to cancel the booking as per the conditions for cancellation and re-let the property.
10. Non-availability of Property
In the event of the accommodation becoming unavailable such as fire or flooding, or any other reason beyond the control of the Clos A Jaon the Clos A Jaon will endeavour to provide the Guest with suitable alternative accommodation of up to equal value, or will refund all monies paid, or a proportion in the case of curtailment, whereupon the Clos A Jaon lliability will cease.
11. Changing a Booking
Once a booking has been confirmed, the booking cannot be transferred to another property, except by treating it as a cancellation of the original reservation (see cancelling a booking). The dates of a booking may only be changed within the same calendar year, and are subject to availability and the Clos A Jaon agreement, in which case another booking fee will be payable.
Any alterations to a booking by the Guest will be subject to an administration charge of £25.
12. Cancelling a Booking
A booking can only be cancelled prior to the start of the holiday. A Guest who wishes to cancel the booking must notify the Clos A Jaon in writing, as a phone call alone will not suffice.

If the Guest cancels the booking more than four weeks before the date of arrival, the Deposit shall be forfeited to the Clos A Jaon who shall be entitled to keep it.
