4. TRAVEL PRODUCTS
4.1. At the time of making the Booking and/or during the Booking process, Hotelian.com shall inform the Company of the specific terms and conditions relevant for the respective Travel Product as well as any special operational procedures (which may include opening hours, renovations, minimum age at check-in and voucher presentation obligations); all of which shall be displayed on the Service. The Company shall be responsible for ensuring that the specific terms and conditions for each Travel Product will be clearly displayed to its Customers.

The Company and its respective Customers shall be responsible for reviewing all such terms that are relevant to the Booking and to make sure that the Booking made is consistent with those special terms.
4.4. Any important information such as taxes, facility/resort fees and front desk limited working hours may be displayed in the Remarks or Hotel Info on the Booking Platform and/or the information provided by the Provider. Accordingly, it is Company's responsibility to check for updates regarding such information and to fully inform its Customers accordingly. Hotelian.com will not be held responsible for fees or losses incurred as a result of failure to transmit such information. Company assumes all responsibility in relation to the above.
4.5. As we also distribute dynamic inventory (connected directly to the hotel CRSs, where they perform current revenue management), for agencies who have opted to cancel their bookings upon or subsequent to cancellation deadlines, then the rates might be increased, and rooms might no longer be available for the period between when the Booking is made on our system and your reconfirmation to us to release the Booking to the agent.
4.6. In the event that any Provider is unable to provide one or more Travel Products specified in the Booking, Hotelian.com shall inform the Company promptly following receipt of notice from Provider to such effect. The Provider shall be solely responsible to compensate the Customer for any such changes made to the Booking.
4.7. Complaints must be reported by Customer to the Provider and Hotelian.com on a real-time basis. However, we will not be liable for any complaints to Providers. Customer is responsible for making Provider aware of any complaints compensation for a problem which could have been rectified during the Customer's stay, had the Provider been made aware of it.
Usually, the prices for all Travel Products displayed on the Service are the net rates (“Rates”), which are subject to applicable law, and, unless otherwise advised by the respective Provider (and, in turn, advised by Hotelian.com via the Booking Platform), are inclusive of all applicable taxes and fees (i.e. direct taxes, withholding tax, levy, VAT, or any tax applicable in any jurisdiction and/or resort fees). If such taxes/VAT apply after the Booking is made for the Customer, then the Customer will be charged for any differences that may arise. Company may independently determine its own markup and shall charge any such markup directly to its Customers as a markup to the Rates. Breakfast and/or other meals are not included unless otherwise stated. Some hotels/travel suppliers/authorities may charge additional local taxes, which are payable upon clients’ arrival. The applicable currency is shown on every page of the "hotels" section lists.

7.4. Hotels must keep the rooms booked for you until 6:00 PM local time on the day of arrival. If the Customer expects to arrive at the hotel after this hour, he/she must advise you at the time of Booking by providing the estimated arrival time. Should the Customer fail to do so, the hotel has the right to resell the room, and might not be able to accommodate the Customer when he/she arrives. Providing us with the "late arrival" information regarding the Customer is your responsibility, and we will not be held liable for any problems or liability arising out of your failure to do so or any failure by Customer to so notify you. This policy also applies to any facilities or properties having limited front desk working hours.
7.5. Please be aware that hotels are under renovation from time to time. Hotels take all possible steps to limit disruption to their guests. Assuming that renovations were disclosed at time of Booking, we will not accept complaints, or requests for refunds, if a hotel is carrying out renovations while a Customer is resident there.

7.6.3. In some hotels, no additional bed is provided for a child if the addition of a child is not subject to any charges or is subject to a reduced price. The sharing TWIN /DBL room by a child with adults and breakfast may be charged for a child on departure.
7.7. Contracts with hotels are based on sale to the leisure market. Should any Customer on arrival be found to be a corporate client, then the Provider may waive the Booking and charge the full rack rate. We cannot accept any responsibility if the Customer/you have a "corporate rate" agreement with the particular hotel/chain, and the Provider refuses to honor such Booking.
7.8. Hotels may request the guest to present his/her official travel document (passport) and/or other identification certificate. Please advise your Customers accordingly.

While most changes are minor, there may be instances where a major change is necessary, such as a hotel closure or overbooking, which could result in a change of hotel.The aforementioned examples are not exhaustive, and there may be additional circumstances considered as major changes. Please note that a change of accommodation to another of the same or higher standard does not qualify as a major change. In the unlikely event that the provider needs to make a significant alteration to your booking, we will provide you with the following options:
a) The option to accept the proposed change.
b) The opportunity to purchase alternative arrangements of a similar standard to your original booking, subject to availability. If the alternative arrangements are less expensive than the original booking, the price difference will be refunded to you.

11. CANCELLATIONS AND AMENDMENTS
11.1. The cancellation policy for each Booking, as determined by the respective Provider, shall be clearly displayed on the Booking Platform at the time of making the Booking or during the Booking process (the “Cancellation Policy” or as might appear on the Platform “CXL”). The Cancellation Policy will specify until what date and time cancellations will be accepted and what cancellation fee, if at all, will be due to Hotelian.com for such cancellation. The Company shall be responsible for ensuring that the relevant Cancellation Policy will be clearly displayed to its Customers.
11.2. Without derogating from Section 10.1 above, Cancellation Deadlines apply for each particular Booking and depend on several factors including the Travel Product type, the Provider and any third-party suppliers or aggregators, and dates of travel. The Cancellation Deadline will be provided with the Booking confirmation, except as otherwise specified by us. If the Customer cancels after the Cancellation Deadline or fails to show up at the Travel Products provision point ("no-show"), then the Customer will be charged a minimum of 1 night/day/unit cost of each Travel Product, and up to 100% of the total amount booked (“Cancellation Charges”) We will do our best to avoid Cancellation Charges and will only charge you if a Provider charges us.
11.3. In the event of duplicate Bookings the Company may incur additional charges for all such identical confirmed Bookings. Hotelian.com will endeavor to minimize the charges but cannot guarantee to waive these charges, in part or in whole.
11.4. All and any cancellation or amendment requests must be made in writing, preferably online on the Website or Booking Platform. We will not process any of your requests made by phone. The original status of the bookings will be deemed accurate and applicable for all purposes, including payment.
11.5. If a hotel is overbooked, then the hotel may offer alternative accommodation for the Customer. We will advise you immediately, upon receipt of such notice from the Provider, and you will be free to accept or decline and cancel the reservation with us within 24 hours. For clarify, we will bear no liability towards yourselves and/or the Customers for any such overbooking or for any failure to find alternative accommodation. Should the Customer wish to re-book a different hotel of facility at a higher price, then, he/she will be liable for the additional costs.
11.6. Any amendments or cancellations of bookings must be made directly through us and not via the Provider. Should you fail to comply with this, full charges will apply for the Travel Products booked through us, regardless of your direct dealings with the Provider.
11.7. We will not accept any direct communication, correspondence or instructions from Customers.
11.8. If the Customer decides to shorten/partially cancel Travel Products during the time he/she is already using them (for example: shorten the hotel stay and leave earlier than booked), then it is strongly recommended that he/she will obtain written consent from an authorized representative of the Provider that they will not be charging for the unused part of the Travel Products and share such a written consent with you. This will facilitate our claim to obtain a refund on the Customer's behalf. We will not be able to guarantee any refunds, and in the event no refund is granted by Provider, the full cost of such Travel Products as paid or payable to us will be unchanged. All and any refunds must be first confirmed by the Provider, and we will not be able to refund you if we do not receive a refund from the Provider for any reason.
11.9. All extensions and extra Travel Products outside the scope of the original vouchers provided by us, will be handled and paid for by the Customer directly on a real time basis, and we will not be held liable in any way for such dealings, which are fully at the Customer's sole discretion.
11.10. Any change (including without limitation name and date) is subject to Provider's approval.
11.11. When special events take place (exhibitions, international or local holidays, conferences, festivals, etc.), the Provider may change the rate of a future booking made for such dates after the reservation is made. In such cases, we will have to respect the change determined by the Provider and you will have the option to cancel the reservation.
12. GROUP BOOKINGS
The Booking Platform and API cannot be used for a Group Booking. Such bookings must be sent by email and will be subject to a quotation and prepayment. If Group Bookings are added using the Booking Platform or API the hotels are not bound to accept the Booking. Group Bookings are subject to longer cancellation terms and early prepayment. You will be advised of the particular terms for each Group Booking upon confirmation from the Provider. Should the Customer fail to comply with payment deadlines, then the Group Booking will be automatically cancelled.
Submitting related Bookings that do not rise to a Group Booking is possible. However, you must inform us that the Booking you placed is related to another Booking. The Company will not be liable in any way for the joint execution of Bookings not reported as being related.
