Terms and Conditions
1. YOUR BOOKING
1.1 The rates are based on your period of stay. Upon successfully completing your booking and receiving your confirmation, you are entering into a contract with Stayo as per our Terms & Conditions.
The rates that we advertise are inclusive of VAT and have no hidden charges. However, we reserve the right to change any rates from time to time, according to seasonality and demand. Once a booking has been confirmed we will honour the rate quoted unless you amend the booking or our cost of supplying the accommodation service is altered as a result of currency fluctuations or due to circumstances which are beyond our control.
1.2 Restrictions may apply in certain locations including, but not limited to, minimum length of stay and age restrictions. Where applicable, you will be advised of these at the time of booking. We reserve the right to refuse any booking at any time.
1.3 Once you receive your confirmation, please check all details carefully. For any inaccuracies in the booking, please inform us immediately and in writing. However, we regret to inform you that we cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in the documentation.
1.4 Payment in full is required at the time of booking unless agreed otherwise. If payment does not reach us at the required time we reserve the right to suspend or cancel any booking made.
Payment must be made in Pounds Sterling by Credit or Debit card. We accept all major Credit/Debit cards, including American Express Card (Amex). We may pass your Credit/Debit card details onto a third party to process any payments. Payments by Bank Transfer (BACS) are also accepted provided they reach us no later than one full month before the check-in date. Bank details available on request.
For bookings made within 24 hours of check-in, the guest will get 2 hours to complete the payment.
For bookings made within 48 hours of check-in, the guest will get 12 hours to complete the payment.
For bookings made over two full months in advance of the date of arrival, we offer the option to split the payment over two separate transactions. A reservation fee, equivalent to no less than 40% of the value of the reservation, must be paid at the time of booking; the remaining amount must be received by us no later than one full month before the date of arrival. As stated, this option must be agreed in writing at the time of booking.
1.5 A Security Deposit to cover additional charges will be taken on the date of check-in. The Security Deposit will be pre-authorised on your Credit or Debit card two days prior to the check-in date and will be released on the day of check-out once the status of the apartment has been confirmed. We require a security deposit of up to £1000 for any booking made less than 7 days before check-in-date.
We reserve the right to claim part or all of the Security Deposit to cover any additional charges including breakages, damages, extra cleaning, unauthorised late check-out, lost key(s), fob(s) or access cards(s), missing tablet or charger, and further accommodation charges.

1.6 We do not expect to have to make any changes to your booking, however occasionally bookings have to be changed or cancelled or errors in information or other details corrected and we reserve the right to do so. If this does happen, we will contact you by email where reasonably possible. If a change has to be made or your booking has to be cancelled we will, if possible, offer you an alternative apartment of similar type and standard in a similar location for the same period. If you do not wish to accept a change or any alternative apartment offered, or we cannot offer you a suitable alternative apartment, you may be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a refund.
If you wish to extend your stay, please give us as much notice as possible in order to facilitate your request. All extensions are subject to availability and rate change.
1.7 We are not responsible for the theft and/or damage of your personal belongings during your stay in any apartment booked. Therefore, please make sure you have appropriate insurance in place. In addition, kindly ensure you have appropriate travel insurance to cover cancellation and medical expenses.
1.8 Cleaning before the check-in and at check-out is included in the rate. A free of charge stay over clean is included in the price for any bookings of 8 nights or longer. Additional cleaning during your stay can be arranged at an additional cost to be paid either in cash or by Credit/Debit card in accordance with paragraph 3.3.
1.9 Routine maintenance is carried out regularly by our maintenance team. On occasion we may require access to your apartment to carry out essential maintenance. We will normally give you 24 hours notice except in the event of an emergency when we require immediate access.
