4.1 That the number of persons occupying the property will not exceed the number stated on the booking confirmation and the Rental Property will not be occupied over night by any persons other than those confirmed and agreed in writing (email) by The Turquoise Collection Ltd. and/or the Property Owner/representative.

4.12 The Lead Guest, personally and on behalf of the Party and any other Visitor/s to the property, agrees not to take or allow others to take drugs at the rental property at any time.
The Lead Guest agrees to take care around the Rental Property and consider the risks posed by balconies and swimming pools. 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 Rental Property and swimming pool depth. 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 stay at the Rental Property and take extra care with swimming pools, balconies, roads, unfenced areas, etc, as it is likely the Rental Property will not have the same child precautions you may be accustomed to in your own home.
During your stay at the Rental Property please be just as vigilant as you would be at home and ensure you take sensible precautions to protect your belongings and personal safety. Burglaries at holiday accommodation do occur in many locations around the word and whilst this is a relatively rare occurrence, we ask the Lead Guest and Party members and any other Visitor/s to the property to be vigilant in ensuring the Rental Property is properly secured and all windows and terrace/ balcony doors are locked whenever the Rental Property is not occupied and at night. Additionally take care to lock the Rental Property when you are relaxing around the swimming pool and terraces. Safes are provided at some rental properties, but it should be noted that their use is entirely at the Lead Guest and Party's own risk, and that safes cannot be relied upon to provide absolute security for their contents in the event of a burglary. 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 travel insurance.
The ground surface inside and outside the Rental Property may be wet due to the maid cleaning them on arrival, departure, and any other day when the maid/cleaning service is carried out. 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 or less mobile. 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. Please take extra care on stairs, most staircases are marble or tiled to be cool underfoot in the heat and some properties may have spiral staircases or may not have handrails. Be cautious when using tiled wet-room bathrooms and/or shower rooms with glass screens.
Please be very careful with windows, and especially full-length glass patio doors. The glass may not be toughened and occasionally, in an unfamiliar environment, accidents may occur more easily than they can do so at home.
6. Pools, garden and general property maintenance
Many of the villas and apartments in our collection are cherished holiday homes owned by individuals and families in several locations around the world. Just as in your own homes, there is an element of wear and tear over time, which should be expected, and on occasion damage is caused by the previous guests that cannot be resolved in the small window we have to prepare properties for incoming guests.
In booking villa and apartment accommodation with us, you understand and accept that we do not guarantee the condition or availability of furniture, fittings, facilities or amenities at your booked property. However, our resort staff are at your disposal throughout your stay should you need their assistance to resolve an issue at your booked property.
All Rental Properties on our website are maintained by staff appointed by the Property Owner who have access to the pool/garden area. Gardens must be maintained on a regular basis, and it is simply not possible for this to be carried out on 'change-over' days. Swimming pools are checked on a regular basis and this is normally carried out early in the morning to avoid disruption to you during your booked stay at the Rental Property. However, it must be noted that neither pool nor garden personnel have fixed hours, so it is not possible for us to advise you of the exact date or time of their visit. We ask for your cooperation when staff visit, as it is imperative to keep the properties well maintained for our customer's enjoyment throughout the year.
Please take care to secure the property at all times and take care of property key(s). You will be responsible for the cost of replacement key(s) if you lose them.
7. Accidental Damage Waiver
Where an Accidental Damage Waiver (ADW) fee is paid, as specified in the booking confirmation, this covers minor accidental damage or loss that may occur at the Rental Property during your booking, up to a limit of liability of £250 for apartments and £500 for villa stay, in aggregate.
The Accidental Damage Waiver fee does not cover intentional, wilful and negligent behaviour. If the cost of accidental damage exceeds £250 for apartments or £500 for villas per incident or is deemed to have been caused by wilful and negligent behaviour, a charge will be made locally or an invoice will be sent to you with 28 days of your return to the UK. The Lead Guest will be responsible for any amount payable in respect of any damage which exceeds the limits shown in the paragraph above.
The Lead Guest will be responsible for reimbursing the amount in excess of the agreed Accidental Damage Waiver limit of liability directly to the Property Owner or their representatives. In the event that the Lead Guest fails to pay any amount due to the Property Owner for loss or damage at the Rental Property, the Property Owner reserves the right to exercise any legal remedies to pursue the amount owed from the Lead Guest.
8. Security Deposit
Where a refundable Security Deposit has been paid, as specified in the booking confirmation, this deposit will be retained by us or a local supplier in part payment of any damage or losses that may occur at the Rental Property during your booking.
If the total amount of any damage and/or loss occurring in the Rental Property during your stay exceeds the amount of the Security Deposit paid, the Lead Guest will be responsible for reimbursing any amount in excess of the Security Deposit paid, to the Property Owner directly. In the event that the Lead Guest fails to pay any amount due to the Property Owner for loss or damage at the Rental Property, the Property Owner reserves the right to exercise any legal remedies to pursue the amount owed from the Lead Guest.
9. Special requests
Special requests may be made prior to travel and whilst The Turquoise Collection Ltd will endeavour to meet the special requests, this unfortunately cannot be guaranteed. In no circumstances will special requests accepted by The Turquoise Collection Ltd form part of our contractual obligations and The Turquoise Collection Ltd will have no liability if the special requests 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 many of the resorts and properties lack the simplest facilities such as ramps and are not necessarily childproof. If you let us know your requirements, we will do our best to furnish you with as much information as possible so you can make informed choices.
The Lead Guest, Party members or Visitor's personal belongings and vehicles (together with their contents) are left at the Rental Property entirely at their own risk.
The Turquoise Collection Ltd. shall accept no liability to the Lead Guest, Party or Visitors for any loss, damage or injury whatsoever caused to the Lead Guest, Party or Visitor's personal property during their stay at the Rental Property. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. do 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 Lead Guest and is limited to the rental of the Rental Property 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, 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 Turquoise Collection Ltd. accepts no liability. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. shall not accept liability for loss of main services such as electricity or water supplies, nor any actions taken in the vicinity of the Rental 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 Lead Guest, Party or Visitor to the Rental Property, arising out of or in connection with the use of the Rental Property. The Lead Guest must ensure that all children or vulnerable adults in their party are supervised at all times, including but not limited to whilst in or around the swimming pool. 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 Rental Property 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.

Early departures will be charged to the full booked duration of the stay. Reimbursements will not be given.

If the Lead Guest wishes to make a booking during low season, it is possible that construction projects may be going on in the area. The Turquoise Collection Ltd. cannot be expected to know the timings and exact locations of every building project and so bookings cannot be guaranteed to be unaffected by construction works.

23. Excursions & activities
We may provide you with information (on our website, and/or in our brochure and/or during your booked stay at the Rental Property) about activities and excursions which are available in the area you are visiting but which you cannot book with us in the UK.
We have no involvement in any such activities or excursions which are neither run, supervised nor controlled in any way by The Turquoise Collection Ltd. These activities or excursions are provided by local operators or other third parties who are entirely independent of us. They do not form any part of your contract with us even where we may suggest operators/other third parties and/or assist you in booking such activities or excursions in any way. Where we or any of our local representatives make or take any booking for or from you in respect of any activity or excursion, we do so solely as booking agent for the organiser or operator of the activity or excursion. This is the case regardless of whether the activity or excursion is advertised or mentioned in our brochure, on our website, in resort, or elsewhere.

Our local representatives are instructed not to sell or book any activity, excursion or other service which they have not been formally authorised to sell or book. We do not act as booking agent and have no other connection with or responsibility or liability for any activity or excursion where this is not the case. Any advice or assistance on or with any activity or excursion provided by any local representative does not mean or imply that the activity or excursion is sold by the local representative or ourselves or that any such advice or assistance is given on our behalf.
Some facilities, activities and excursions could involve an element of risk. These activities, facilities and excursions are neither run nor controlled by The Turquoise Collection Ltd. If you wish to participate, purchase or make use of any optional activities, facilities or excursions, we regret that The Turquoise Collection Ltd. cannot accept liability in relation to these.

The discretion to partake in any such activities, facilities, or excursions is entirely at your own risk. You are responsible for taking sensible precautions for your own safety and for the safety of any children or family members for whom you are responsible.

If you have cause for complaint during your booked stay at the Rental Property or travelling to your destination, this must be brought to the attention of the Turquoise Collection resort representative, or your local resort contact/ property manager (if there is no local Turquoise Collection Representative available) immediately so that action can be taken at the time to rectify the problem. Contact details for resort staff are sent with pre-departure information ahead of your travel date. Should resort staff be unable to resolve the matter, details of the complaint must be notified to The Turquoise Collection Ltd. UK office in writing within 14 days of the end of your holiday. Your complaint will be investigated, and we will respond by email within 31 days of receipt of your written complaint. Failure to report your complaint in writing within 14 days of the end of your booked stay at the Rental Property will affect ours and the Property Owner's/ relevant supplier's ability to investigate your complaint, and will affect your rights under this contract.
