We are registered in Spain under company number B42575811 and with our registered office at Calle Cannes 8, Javea, Alicante, 03730, Spain

- (a) You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
- (b) You have the authority to accept these conditions and do accept them on behalf of your party.

3.1 Payment for all Services must be by bank transfer or by credit card as stated on your client page
3.2 The price is fixed in the currency as shown on the villa description page. Payment may be made in another currency at our discretion, and the rate will be determined on the daily rate when payment is made, not when the booking is made. The exchange rate used will be the HSBC selling rate. This may occur when paying the deposit and/or when paying the balance.
3.3. In order to book a property, a non-returnable 25-30% (depending on the villa) deposit of the full balance is required. The non-returnable balance should be paid no later than 10 weeks prior to departure. Failure to do so, means that we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled, and may re-let the accommodation without any refund.
3.4 If a booking is made within 10 weeks, the full balance will be required.
3.5 The price of any Services will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
3.6 Our site contains a large number of villa properties and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our booking procedures so that, where a villa’s correct rental price is less than our stated price, we will advise you of the correct charge being the lower amount when contacting you later. If a villas correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before confirming the booking offer, or reject your booking and notify you of such rejection.
3.7. We are under no obligation to provide the villas to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Booking Form, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
4.1 We provide services as a booking agent for consumers who wish to book holiday villas in Spain.
- (a) Accordingly we give as accurate information as possible on our website, but can not vouch for the accuracy of the advertisements, or be held liable for any errors. On arrival at your destination, the local office may ask you to agree to their terms and conditions. Consumers are notified that Prestige Villas Spain Limited is not a party to this separate contract and accordingly cannot make payment or give refunds for damages or claims of disappointment or loss of enjoyment whatsoever.We act as your booking agent in good faith with the local agent and therefore in the event of holiday disappointment not caused by our breach of agency duty and/or contract and/or negligence you must seek redress from the local agent directly. Happily in our experience problems are rare.
5.1 After requesting a booking, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your request. Please note that this does not mean that your booking has been confirmed. Your booking constitutes an instruction to us to reserve a villa with the local agent. This offer we may accept or reject. All bookings are subject to this contract as well as the terms and conditions of the local agent’s terms and conditions. Accordingly acceptance by us of your offer means that we will confirm to you by sending you an e-mail with the Booking form. The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Booking Form. This means a villa reservation has been placed, however this does not mean a holiday has been bought. See 5.2 below.
5.2 The viilla will be reserved for 5 days, giving you time to return the booking form by email, and make the necessary payments. If this does not happen, we will assume you no longer wish to book, and the booking will become cancelled.
5.3 This Contract will relate only to those Services that we have confirmed in the Booking Form.
6.1 As stated we accept offers of bookings as agents on behalf of local offices.
