Property Prices and Rental Rates

 

The prices indicated on the Boutiq website for the Boutiq vacation rentals are subject to availability.  Taxes and service charges are only included if indicated in the rate policy.

 

Payment

 

It will be necessary for you to provide credit card or other payment details to secure a property reservation.  The credit card may then be used by the Boutiq property for payment of a deposit as advised at the time of booking or as a guarantee for a future payment, in the case of a no-show, a cancellation or change to the reservation.

 

Cancellations and Amendments

 

You should make any cancellations or amendments to your reservation using the same Boutiq channel through which you booked.  The cancellations and amendments policy that applies to your reservation will depend on the respective Boutiq property’s policy as advised at the time of booking.

 

Rate/Reservation Validity

 

Reservation confirmations are provided to you solely for your convenience.  Boutiq and Boutiq properties retain official records of reservation transactions, including details of dates of stay and property rates. In the event of discrepancies, alterations, modifications, or variations between this confirmation and our official records, Boutiq’s official records shall prevail. Tampering with this confirmation to alter the room rate or any other reservation information is strictly prohibited and will have legal consequences.

 

Currency

 

Reservations will be charged in the property’s local currency as shown on the Boutiq website at the time of booking. 

 

A refund of a deposit or prepayment, if any, will be subject to the exchange rate applied by your payment card provider at the time of any such refund and may differ from the exchange rate applied at the time such deposit or prepayment was made.

 

Prepaid Reservations

 

Some rate plans require prepayment in full and are non-cancellable, non-refundable, non-changeable and non-transferable. This will be identified in the rate description.  For these rate plans, once you make a reservation your credit card will be charged for the full amount.

Boutiq will work with guests to determine an acceptable solution which may or may not include altering reservation dates, providing refunds, or attempting to redirect guests to a comparable property which may or may not be owned or operated by Boutiq. Boutiq will not be held responsible in the event that canceled or altered bookings result in hardship or financial loss for travelers.
