Payment

4. The payment process for a booking will differ depending on whether the relevant accommodation provider is a Gold Medal Operator or 24-hour Operator. Accommodation providers are distinguished in this manner dependent upon the accuracy of their room availability information.

5. Dealing with a Gold Medal Operator

As a Gold Medal Operator guarantees their room availability information is up to date, the amount debited will (subject to Clause 7) be the amount shown on our 'Confirm and Pay Now' screen immediately prior to your executing payment by engaging the 'Pay Now' button.

6. Dealing with a 24-hour Operator

As a 24-hour Operator cannot guarantee the accuracy of their room availability information, the payment process occurs in the following manner:

a. you must engage the 'Request Booking' button on our 'Confirm Booking Request' screen;

b. immediately upon execution of the booking request, an email is sent to the accommodation provider who is to respond within 24 hours confirming or declining the request;

c. if the room is available, you will be provided with a hyperlink to a secure BookEasy webpage where you must follow the instructions in order to complete payment;

d. the amount to be debited to your credit card will (subject to clause 7) be the amount shown on the BookEasy webpage immediately prior to execution of the payment button on that page.

7. Depending upon the currency of the booking, the credit card's money currency and the country in which the credit card was issued, the credit card provider may impose fees in accordance with your arrangements with that credit card provider.

8. Finalisation of your booking cannot occur unless you agree to be bound by the terms of the respective accommodation provider's cancellation policy. You must accept the relevant accommodation provider's cancellation policy by clicking on the check box found on the applicable booking confirmation screen.
