Terms and Conditions

General terms and conditions updated July 1st 2020

Please read these Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) carefully as they contain important information about your legal rights, remedies and obligations. By booking an apartment with Navigare, you agree to be legally bound by these Terms.

These Terms are at all times accessible, in the latest version, through https://navigare-properties.com/terms-and-conditions/

1. Scope

These Terms regulate the legal relationship between Navigare Properties (“Navigare” or “we/our(s)”) and its customers (the “Guest” or “you/your(s)”) and shall apply when Navigare rents out its serviced apartments or villas (“Properties”) to the Guest (the “Rental Services”) as well as provides any other services or goods to the Guest. By sending an electronic request and when having received a written confirmation of the booking of an Apartment from Navigare (the “Booking Confirmation”), the Guest confirms that you have read, understood and agrees to be legally bound by these Terms.

Notwithstanding the aforesaid, the Terms are supplementary to the specifications set out in the Booking Confirmation and in case of conflict between a provision in these Terms and the Booking Confirmation, the Booking Confirmation shall take precedence.

Navigare reserves the right to, at our discretion, change and or modify the whole or parts of these Terms at any time without notice and, unless otherwise indicated, such changes will become effective immediately upon posting; therefore, please check these Terms periodically for changes. We will display the effective date of these Terms and Conditions at the top of this page. If such changes have a significant effect on already confirmed bookings, a notice of the new Terms and Conditions will be sent to the Guest.

2. Booking accomodation

2.5   Return and final cleaning

The Guest is responsible for leaving the Apartment (including any personal or other property located at the Apartment) in the condition it was in when the Guest arrived.

The price of the Rental Services and any additional services provided by Navigare to the Guest shall be as set out in the price list, as amended by Navigare from time to time in its sole discretion.

3.2   Payment conditions and late payments

The price to be paid by the Guest for the Rental Services, and the date of payment, shall be set out in the Booking Confirmation and, when applicable, the invoice.

Payment against an invoice shall be made by the Guest within fifteen (15) days from the date of the invoice, or as stated in the booking confirmation. If the Guest fails to pay any invoice that falls due, then the Guest shall be in default. In such event, Navigare shall send the Guest a written reminder to pay the amount owed within seven (7) days. If the Guest do not pay the amount owed within such grace period, Navigare reserves the right to take relevant legal action to recover the amount owed by the Guest and/or to terminate these Terms and the relevant Booking Confirmation immediately.

For any late payment by the Guest, Navigare shall be entitled to charge interest at the rate of [five (5)] % from the due date of the relevant invoice.

Navigare shall in all cases be entitled to request a reasonable advance payment from the Guest. The amount of the advance payment and the date of payment are agreed upon in writing in the Booking Confirmation.

3.3   Currency

For the Properties, rates confirmed in foreign currencies may be converted to local currency by Navigare at your time of stay, based on the exchange rate used by the Property and are subject to exchange rate fluctuations.

3.4   Payment methods

For bookings by telephone or email, any amounts owed may be paid by bank transfer, debit or credit card or in cash at the time of check-in, according to the booking confirmation.

6. Overbooking and unforseen circumstances

In the event that a Guest cannot be accommodated due to overbooking, Navigare will attempt to accommodate the Guest, at its expense, at a comparable property in the area for the night(s) for which Navigare is unable to accommodate such guests, and will pay for transportation to that property.

For the period of 30th of January 2021 and 30th of November 2021 the Properties are under development.

Navigare might change the reserved Apartment to another Apartment within the resort with short notice and will make this information available to the Guest at a timely manner.

Should Navigare not have the possibility to accommodate the Guest, Navigare will inform the guest as soon as possible and offer a full refund or attempt to accommodate guests, at its expense, at a comparable property in the area for the night(s) for which Navigare is unable to accommodate such guests, and will pay for transportation to that property
