2. 0 Liability

PetsPyjamas provides an online platform for you to browse and search accommodation, and acts as booking agent only in respect of bookings we make on your behalf. By booking accommodation on our Site you will be entering into a contractual relationship with the accommodation provider, we act solely as an intermediary and agent. 

PetsPyjamas shall not be liable for any losses, expenses or damages of any sort due to you as a result of the acts, errors, omissions, breaches, negligence, fraudulent intent, misleading or untrue statements, breach of contract, breach of statutory duty, wilful misconduct or any other tortious act attributable either wholly or in part to accommodation providers or any other independent business or suppliers of services who sell their products and services through us, which includes their employees, directors, officers, agents, representatives or affiliates. This means that in the event of you suffering personal injury, illness or death as a result of any act or omission of an accommodation provider or other supplier of services (or their employees or agents) or you have any complaint about the quality of the services provided or having any other complaint at all, your sole right of redress will be against the independent third party who provided such service and PetsPyjamas will be under no liability at all (whether in contract, tort or otherwise). 

You understand that we may not have conducted any quality or other checks on the accommodation providers and we make no representations about the suitability of the accommodation and/or services offered for sale through the Site. The inclusion or offering for sale of accommodation and/or services by PetsPyjamas does not constitute an express or implied endorsement or recommendation by PetsPyjamas of such accommodation or services. We do not guarantee the accuracy of, and disclaim liability for any inaccuracies relating to the accommodation and services offered for sale through us. We shall not be liable for any damages arising as a result of any inaccurate information or errors on our Site which relate to accommodation information. We shall not be liable to you for any losses in the event of accommodation providers overbooking, cancelling bookings in full or in part, force majeure events or any other cause beyond our or their control. 

You accept that we have not in any way selected or assembled your travel arrangements for you. Your accommodation arrangements are not a package and do not fall within the meaning of The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

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.  

Where you, or any of the people that you are booking on behalf of, are in breach of any of the provisions of these Terms or contravention of any laws or rights of a third party, we reserve the right to cancel your booking without refund or compensation in any way and recover from you any costs incurred as a result of your behaviour.

Nothing in these Terms shall, nor shall be deemed to exclude or limit the liability of PetsPyjamas for any death or personal injury caused as a result of our negligence, or the negligence of our employees or for fraudulent misrepresentation. 

 

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. Further details of cancellation policy are set out in our email to you confirming your booking and are also shown on the hotel's room details page prior to you making a booking. 

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. 

 

Policy details as of 20th December 2020 in regards to customer bookings and the COVID-19 outbreak.  Please note that all bookings are still subject to the standard T&C’s

From the date shown above, these Terms & Conditions are now in place and will apply to all bookings.

Updated 20th December 2020

Overview

The safety and wellbeing of our customers are paramount to what we do. In support of the Government efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 in the United Kingdom, all of our properties in 'Tier 3' and 'Tier 4' are closed from Saturday 19th December 2020 until it’s safe to reopen and welcome PetsPyjamas travellers once more. If this should change, we will provide an update on this page. Customers living in 'Tier 4' should not leave their local area.

 

If you have a booking with us, there is no need to call. We are contacting our customers due to check-in during this period to rearrange travel plans. Please bear with us while we work through these bookings on a consecutive basis.

What is your policy/ cancellation policy/ where does PetsPyjamas stand with COVID-19?

As per our Terms and Conditions, we have posted the following Covid-19 policy on the website, to be found at this URL: https://www.petspyjamas.com/about/coronavirus/

If restrictions are put in place due to significant reasons such as events of force majeure and/ or the'four tier restrictions' put in place by the government and/ or the ‘national lockdown’ these restrictions collide with your booking (please check the official Government website:https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus, then your booking will be automatically cancelled. Please see below for your cancellation options: 

 

1. We are able to rebook your stay to an alternative date. This can be arranged for you to stay at the same accommodation or other accommodation found on the PetsPyjamas website. This is our suggested option as preferred properties have very limited availability for dog-friendly travel due to many customers not travelling abroad in late 2020 and early 2021. In order to avoid the disappointment of your preferred property being fully booked, we would highly recommend to change dates or rebook now. 

 

2. We can transfer the amount you have paid onto a credit voucher, which can then be used towards a new stay of your choice. This option provides full flexibility if you are unsure as to when you would next like to travel. Your voucher can be used towards multiple holidays and we will also include a 10% discount code as a goodwill gesture, which can be used towards a new stay. Both voucher and code are valid for up to 12 months.

 

3. If this is an option to you at all, you can amend your booking by reducing the number of people on your booking to six people or less, which then adheres to the current official Government guidelines. 

 

4. You can request a full refund to your account*. Refunds will be returned to the same account used when the booking was made. Unfortunately, we are unable to refund vouchers and so, your voucher will be reactivated, allowing you to rebook your future PetsPyjamas stay at a date of your choice. Refunds can only be approved and issued following an investigation by our Support and Finance teams, in line with the property's own cancellation and refund policy.

5. We would strongly recommend that you take personal travel insurance that covers your party for any travel arrangements you confirm with us. This should include adequate COVID cancellation cover which covers you in the event that you or someone in your party contracts COVID and you are prevented from travelling even if the destination you are travelling to is not under a lockdown.

We will update this page should our policy on this change.

In offering vouchers as credit and a further 10% discount, PetsPyjamas is providing a generous and flexible set of options that enable you to continue with your holiday plans when this global crisis ends.
