Hotel Booking Terms and Conditions

Your Contract

All arrangements are made subject to the following terms and conditions and by making a payment the Holidaymaker is confirming that he/she accepts and agrees to be bound by these booking conditions. Telephone transactions where debit/credit card details have been supplied are also considered as meeting this requirement. When you book an accommodation only holiday, either via the internet or telephone, your booking is confirmed immediately and it is at this time a binding contract comes into existence and you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking conditions. You must be at least 21 years old to make a booking with us. Please note that single sex parties or groups of young adults (under 21) may only be accepted at selected accommodation. Email confirmation of your booking will be sent to you once payment has been received.

The contract is subject to these booking terms and conditions. All booking conditions will apply to each and every booking made with The Turquoise Collection Ltd. Once the contract is made, it is the accommodation providers' responsibility to provide you with what you have booked and it is your responsibility to pay for the accommodation in full before you travel.

All relevant documentation will be sent to you via email. It is important to check carefully all the details of your booking once you receive it. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. will not be responsible for any information you do not receive as a result of your failure to provide a valid e-mail address. Your contract with us will be governed by English Law and is subject to the jurisdiction of the English Courts at all times.

We reserve the right to make changes to these terms and conditions from time to time without prior notice which will take effect from the date of posting on the website. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms and conditions. Continued use of the website or service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

The Lead Guest

The lead guest is the person or agency that holds the booking, to whom all correspondence and invoices are addressed and who is responsible for the rental. Spouse's names are not considered interchangeable. Where a booking is made by telephone, email or fax, the booking is subject to, and the client must accept these Internet terms and conditions and any made by our suppliers. Where two or more people are included in the same booking, the person requesting the booking shall be deemed to do so, on the basis that he/she acts as an agent for all members of the party and accepts these booking conditions on behalf of each member of the party.

Your Responsibility

It is your responsibility to ensure that;

  • Any specific passport, visa and health requirements are obtained
  • All members of your party, including infants, have a valid passport
  • You have adequate travel insurance to cover your holiday
  • The balance of your holiday is paid by the due date on your invoice.

Please be advised that in the event that you or any of your party are disruptive, or behave in an unsociable manner we do reserve the right to terminate your holiday and will have no further liability or responsibility to you in respect of accommodation or transfer/car hire, nor will refunds be made.

During the period of the holiday, the Holidaymaker (personally and on behalf of all other people visiting the property) undertakes (for the benefit of the property owner and The Turquoise Collection Ltd.) as follows:

  • That the number of people occupying the property will not exceed the number stated on the holiday confirmation
  • That the property will be used solely for the purpose of the holiday by the holidaymaker and his/her party
  • To show due consideration for other parties (to include, but not limited to, refraining from abuses of the property and/or dangerous, offensive or rude behaviour to the property owner, his representative or any third parties such as neighbours)
  • To keep the property and all furniture, utensils, equipment, fixtures and fittings in or on the property in the same state of repair and condition as at the commencement of the holiday and to ensure that at the end of the holiday the property is left in the same state of order and cleanliness in which it was found.  The property owner reserves the right to levy the holidaymakers occupancy and for any sub-sequential loss
  • To report as soon as possible to the property owner (or his representative) any breakages or damage caused by the holidaymaker during the holiday and to reimburse the property owner with the cost of replacement. The property owner reserves the right to make a claim against the holidaymaker for any repair or loss as a result of damage caused
  • To arrive at or after the stated check in time on the arrival day and to vacate the property by the stated check out time on the day of departure unless prior arrangements have been agreed with the property owner, The Turquoise Collection Ltd. and/or the holiday confirmation states otherwise
  • Not allow any person other than guests booked and staying in the property for their holiday to use the facilities and amenities of the property
  • To notify all other members of the party of these undertakings.

In the event of a breach of any of the undertakings set out, the property owner (or his representative), or The Turquoise Collection Ltd. can refuse to allow the Holidaymaker to take possession of the property or make the Holidaymaker leave the property before the end of the holiday. In either case the Holidaymaker shall be deemed to have cancelled the booking and the Holidaymaker shall have no claim for compensation or reimbursement whatsoever.

Safety

The Holidaymaker agrees to take care around the property and gardens and consider the risks posed by balconies and swimming pools to children. Swimming pools should be accessed by the steps and not by jumping or diving in. Please take the time on arrival to familiarise yourself with the layout of the hotel and swimming pool depth. In particular if you are travelling with children, please take the time to point out to them any areas in which they should take particular care such as the pool or on balconies. Parents are responsible for the actions of their children at all times. Please ensure that children are not left unsupervised at any time during your holiday and take extra care with swimming pools, balconies, roads, unfenced areas, etc, as it is likely the accommodation will not have the same child precautions as you are accustomed to in your own home.

On your holiday please be just as vigilant as you would be at home and ensure you take sensible precautions to protect your belongings and personal safety. Adequate travel insurance is essential to cover your personal belongings - there are usually limitations placed on money and valuables so check your policy carefully. In the event that you should lose any items of value whilst on holiday - through theft or otherwise - you must report the facts immediately to the local police or other competent authority and obtain a written report. If a report is not obtained, it will be difficult for you to pursue any claim through your holiday insurance.

The ground surface inside and outside the hotel may be wet due to cleaning. At other times, ground areas open to the elements or subject to dousing in water from the swimming pool may be wet and caution is required at all times. Be aware of the ground condition at all times and be cautious by taking the necessary steps to ensure your safety and especially that of children and the elderly.

Please be very careful with windows, especially full length glass patio doors. The glass may not be toughened and occasionally, in a strange environment, accidents occur more easily than they can do so at home.

Booking Details

Immediately upon receipt of the holiday confirmation from The Turquoise Collection Ltd., the Holidaymaker must check the details and notify The Turquoise Collection Ltd. of any mistakes/errors made as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days; no changes can be made to the booking after this time. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. reserves the right to charge holiday booking amendment fee to administer/correct any error made by the Holidaymaker. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking.

Rental Conditions

Access to your hotel suite is available from the stated check in time on the first day of rental and we will ask you to vacate the suite by the stated check out time at the latest on the agreed departure date, to enable cleaning and preparations for the next guests. Hotel suites are reserved exclusively for the people confirmed as guests at the time of booking and no other persons are permitted to stay at the suite unless agreed by us in writing prior to the rental period.

Under no circumstances will animals be allowed in the hotel (with the exception of guide dogs used to aid sight or hearing).

The Holidaymaker agrees not to smoke or allow smoking inside the hotel at any time.

Financial Protection

Accommodation only bookings (exclusive of flights):

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: http://www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate.

Special Requests

These may be made prior to travel and whilst The Turquoise Collection Ltd. will endeavour to meet them, this unfortunately cannot be guaranteed. In no circumstances will requests be accepted by The Turquoise Collection Ltd. form part of our contractual obligations and The Turquoise Collection Ltd. will have no liability if they are not met. We are happy to give advice and opinions about the suitability for those with limited mobility, elderly, families etc., but we would point out that some of the hotels featured may lack facilities such as ramps and are not necessarily childproof. If you have mobility issues, please contact us and we will do our best to advise you.

Liability

The Turquoise Collection Ltd. shall accept no liability to the Holidaymaker for any loss, damage or injury whatsoever caused to the Holidaymaker or to the Holidaymaker's personal property (or to persons in the Holidaymaker's party or their personal property) during their stay at the hotel. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. does not accept any responsibility or liability for acts of omission of third parties which may prevent or disrupt a customer's booking. The booking contract exists between The Turquoise Collection Ltd. and the Holidaymaker and is limited to the rental of the hotel suite for a short period of time and associated services only. The information and descriptions supplied here are believed to be accurate and offered in good faith. Certain features or facilities may not be available from time to time due to circumstances beyond our control for which we accept no liability. Such situations may be dictated by local circumstances, necessity for maintenance or repair (eg: swimming pools), unsuitable weather conditions, fuel shortages, power cuts or other circumstances beyond our control for which the The Turquoise Collection Ltd. accepts no liability. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. shall not accept liability for loss of main services such as, but not limited to, electricity or water supplies, nor any actions taken in the vicinity of the property by any authority over which there is no control. Refunds or compensation would not be payable and cancellation charges would still apply.

In addition, no liability can be accepted by the Turquoise Collection Ltd. for any injury, loss or damage to the Holidaymaker, any member of the Holidaymaker's Party or any visitor to the hotel, arising out of or in connection with the use of the hotel or facilities. The Holidaymaker must ensure that all children in their party are supervised at all times whilst in or around pool and balcony areas. You hereby waive all rights of recourse against The Turquoise Collection Ltd. and/or any of their subsidiaries as to any incidental or consequential damage or loss of whatsoever nature occurred during the performance of any service rendered by The Turquoise Collection Ltd. or during your respective rental period either arising from or anyhow related to the use of the hotel and rental period which you may suffer and commit to hold harmless The Turquoise Collection Ltd. against any claims, actions, law suits or proceedings carried out by any third party or its successor for any damage, loss, bodily injury or death claimed to occur by reason of or connected with The Turquoise Collection Ltd. and/or any of their subsidiaries.

No Liability can be accepted by The Turquoise Collection Ltd. when the contract is affected by force majeure. In the context of these terms and conditions 'force majeure' is any event that we or any of our suppliers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. These events include, but are not limited to; War, threat of War, riot, civil commotion or strife, hostilities, industrial dispute, natural disasters, acts of god, terrorist activity and its consequences or the threat of such activity, the act of any government or other national or local authority, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather, sea and ice conditions, government action, technical problems with transportation or any other events beyond our control.

Internet Access and WiFi

Internet access and Wi-Fi is available when stated in the relevant accommodation description. Please note there may be restrictions with the availability and speed of the service transmitted by the local provider and technical issues may cause temporary withdrawal of internet facilities. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. are unable to accept responsibility for any down time or consequences of using this service and refund/compensation cannot be offered due to circumstances beyond our control.

Number of Nights

The number of nights stated in the price refers to the number of nights the accommodation has been reserved for you. Some flights may be night flight; when you arrive in resort your accommodation will only be available if you have reserved it for that night. Please bare this in mind when booking your flights.

Out of Season Kalkan Bookings

The 'Season' in Kalkan runs from 15th May to 15th October.

In Turkey, all work by private construction companies, in places designated as tourist areas, is prohibited between 15th May and 15th October. In previous years some builders have agreed to finish sooner, at the request of the local Belediye, but they have a right to continue until the official deadline. Until the 15th May, construction work, some of which may be noisy, is permitted between the hours of 8am and 8pm.

If the Holidaymaker wishes to make a booking outside of the 'Season', it is possible that construction projects may be going on in the area. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. will endeavour to inform the Holidaymaker of this and The Turquoise Collection Ltd. will only take bookings out of season where there is no known building work going on nearby or it is expected to be completed by the holiday start date. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. cannot be expected to know the timings and exact locations of every building project in Kalkan and so bookings outside the 'season' cannot be guaranteed to be unaffected by construction works.

Our Accommodation Price Guarantee

Prices on the website do change from time to time; prices go up as well as down and you will be able to determine your up to date price for your chosen accommodation prior to confirming your booking online. We guarantee that once you have made your booking, we will not increase the price of your accommodation. Please note once you have agreed the price of your accommodation and made your booking this is the price you pay. If the price decreases, you are not entitled to the accommodation at the changed rate.

Unless otherwise stated, the balance of the rental charge (if any) must be paid by the Holidaymaker to The Turquoise Collection Ltd. at the time of booking.

Where this is the case we will inform you of this in response to your request to change your holiday. You will be asked to pay an administration fee of £50, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration including any cancellation fees payable according to our cancellation policy.

They do not form any part of your contract with us even where we suggest particular operators/other third parties and/or assist you in booking such activities or excursions in any way.
