By proceeding to book accommodation and/or other services through the Site or by contacting us via the phone, you accept that you will be entering into a contract with the accommodation provider on their standard terms and conditions. If they are provided, we will endeavour (but undertake no liability to do so) to make copies of the accommodation provider's terms and conditions available to you.  Please review the accommodation information for any applicable terms and conditions.

3.0 Accommodation information

Any information placed on the Site relating to accommodation advertised on the Site including, but without limitation; details of the accommodation, the availability of rooms at the accommodation, the price of the rooms, the facilities available at the accommodation, any accreditations afforded to the accommodation such as a star rating,  details relating to any other services advertised on the Site have been placed on the Site by accommodation and/or other service providers who are independent businesses and are not agents or employees of PetsPyjamas or its affiliates. Such information does not constitute any advice or recommendation given by PetsPyjamas and PetsPyjamas shall not be held liable for inaccuracies or errors (including obvious manifest or typographical errors) in the accommodation information or any of its elements including rates and availability. These independent businesses provide the services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which may limit or exclude their liability to you.

Please note in particular that any accreditations or descriptions of quality such as a star rating have been placed on the Site by accommodation providers and not by us. We do not independently verify star ratings and the star is only indicative of what level of quality you can expect from a particular accommodation provider. 

As PetsPyjamas acts only as a booking agent we will have no responsibility for any errors or inaccuracies in any documentation supplied by the accommodation providers.  Rates shown on our Site are per room per night, (and not per person).  It is your responsibility to check the total price before completing the booking form.  

Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints and typographical errors) are not binding. In the event of an error or mistake being made, we or the accommodation provider reserve the right to cancel your booking and refund all monies paid (if relevant), this will be without any liability to you. We will make all reasonable effort to advise you of any cancelled bookings as soon as possible.

 

4.0 Special requests

Please advise at the time of booking if you have any special requests in order that this information is given to the accommodation provider. We cannot guarantee this request will be met. Such requests will be subject to availability and if the accommodation is unable to meet any such request, neither PetsPyjamas, nor the accommodation, will have any liability to you in this respect. This request may only be available at an additional cost unless otherwise expressly stated in the description of the accommodation provider, and if any additional cost is applicable this should be paid by you direct to the accommodation provider.

 

5.0 Special access requirements

If you have special requirements, such as needing a room with wheelchair access, please contact us before making your booking so that we can ensure that your needs can be meet. Please note that all such special requests are subject to availability and PetsPyjamas cannot guarantee that all accommodation providers will be able to meet your needs. Once you have booked your accommodation, depending on the cancellation policy of the applicable accommodation provider, your booking may be refunded, cancelled, modified or you may be offered alternative accommodation if your request cannot be met. 

 

6.0 Confirmation of booking

To confirm a booking, you must be authorised to make the booking by all persons named on the booking and their parent or guardian for all party members who are under 18 when the booking is made. By making the booking, you are confirming that all persons named on the booking accept the Terms and that you will inform the other persons named on the booking of the confirmation details and any other appropriate information. 

By making the booking you also become responsible for making all payments due under the booking.

The display of hotel rooms for sale on our Site is an invitation to treat only.  Neither completing the booking process online or making a booking via the telephone constitutes acceptance of your offer.  We will send you an email confirmation following your booking on behalf of the accommodation provider confirming acceptance of your offer and forming the legally binding contract subject to any applicable terms and conditions of these Terms. 

If you cancel, amend or change a booking: 

You may modify or cancel your booking at any time prior to your arrival date by contacting us via telephone.

If you cancel or amend your booking, there may be a cancellation charge or amendment fee levied by the accommodation or other service provider. In any event, if you fail to cancel or amend your booking in accordance with the accommodation provider's cancellation or amendment policy, you will be charged a cancellation or amendment fee by the accommodation or other service provider. Upon request we can make a copy of an individual accommodation provider's terms and conditions available to you.

Where the cancellation charges imposed by the accommodation provider are less than 90% of the total value of the booking, in all cases PetsPyjamas will charge an additional cancellation fee of 10% of the total value of the booking.

If, for whatsoever reason, you do not turn up at the accommodation on the arrival date stated on your booking confirmation email, without prior warning to PetsPyjamas ("a no show"), this shall be considered a cancellation. Accommodation providers will charge you a cancellation fee.

If you fail to arrive at your accommodation on time on the day of your reservation and do not tell the accommodation provider in advance, the accommodation provider may cancel the remaining days on your reservation and you may be charged a cancellation fee, please see details in the accommodation providers’ cancellation policy for details.

The accommodation provider’s cancellation policy will continue to apply even after your arrival at your hotel. So for example, should you decide to shorten the duration of your stay, such a request will be dealt with at the discretion of the accommodation provider, and not by us in our capacity as the booking agent.   If you amend your booking in this way there may be a cancellation fee levied by the accommodation provider and you should refer to the provider’s cancellation policy for more details. 

Where the accommodation provider requires a minimum stay for rooms attracting a certain price, this will be clearly stated on confirmation. Some accommodation providers may also charge additional fees for early check in or late check out. Please check the accommodation details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
