3. How to book your accommodation

Simply search for your chosen destination and dates, select your preferred accommodation provider and proceed to the final reservation page making sure that you have given us your email address and valid credit card number. Please ensure you carefully check the dates, the price, the destination and the accommodation provider details before proceeding with your booking request.

Any information entered into our payment page is securely encrypted during transit and the BaliHotelFinder.Com site is verified by Thawte. For more details on this area, please refer to "Payment Details" below.

To make 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 to us.

Due to our high volume of reservations, our consultants are unable to do individual availability checks for clients (apart from Instant Availability bookings which our system checks automatically). We only perform accommodation reservations. To make a booking, you must submit a reservation form and provide your credit card details. A block / authorisation will be made on your credit card for the full value of the booking request but no charge will be made to your credit card at this time (unless this is an Instant Availability booking). Then we will check availability with the hotel and revert to you. It is our policy to reply to all requests within 24 to 48 hours (this time may be longer during high season, weekends, festival periods or special events).

If we cannot fulfil your booking request, you will be notified via an e-mail (within 24 to 48 hours after placing your order) and you will not be charged. We will do our best to suggest to you an alternative hotel.

Even if we accept all bookings that are made on the check-in date, we can only guarantee bookings made at least 2-working days (not including Sundays & Public holidays) before the check-in date (if the hotel has not already been fully booked). The earlier you book, the better chance you have to get a confirmed reservation.

If or when we confirm your booking you will receive an email confirmation that will contain a link to a voucher for your hotel stay which should be retained and printed so it can be presented to the accommodation provider on arrival. Please check the accommodation booking voucher carefully as soon as you receive it and contact the BaliHotelFinder.Com customer services immediately if any information which appears on the accommodation booking voucher or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete. As BaliHotelFinder.Com acts only as an agent we will have no responsibility for any errors in any documentation except where those errors were made by BaliHotelFinder.Com in which case BaliHotelFinder.Com will correct the documentation and inform the accommodation provider appropriately.

If special requests are accepted by the accommodation provider, a section will appear on the Reservation Form to insert such requests and submit them to the hotel. The hotel staff will do their best to accommodate special requests. We cannot guarantee that your requests will be granted because they will depend on the hotel availability.

A binding contract between you and the accommodation provider comes into existence when we issue the confirmation e-mail containing the accommodation booking voucher on behalf of the accommodation provider. If you have been requested to return a Credit Card Data Authorisation form and copy of the cardholder's passport & credit card showing the signatures (together "Autorisation"), the binding contract will not exist until BaliHotelFinder.Com receives the Authorisation.

Reservation / booking number and the hotel voucher provided by BaliHotelFinder.Com are for your sole and personal use; no reservation number or hotel voucher may be transferred or disclosed to third parties and you shall be directly responsible for the use of your own reservation number and hotel voucher.

Improper use by you of any reservation number or hotel voucher shall result in the reservation number and voucher being withdrawn, any transaction will immediately be terminated and legal action against you may be considered.

  • Excursions and other personal expenditure
  • Additional charges for rooms, meals or under-occupancy in apartments that are not stated to be included in your booking. However, unless stated otherwise, all taxes and breakfast are included in the price.

    Extra Beds

    Some accommodation providers have twin or double bedded rooms that will accommodate a third bed. Details on any supplement and/or discount applicable where a third bed is to be occupied by an adult can be obtained from the accommodation provider. Accommodation providers may have no, or limited numbers of, extra beds so the ability to provide a third bed will subject to availability.

    Any request for an extra bed must be made at the time of booking and if the accommodation is unable to meet any such request, neither BaliHotelFinder.Com, nor the accommodation provider, will have any liability to you in this respect

    Failure to honour the booking (No Show)

    If, for whatsoever reason, you do not turn up at the accommodation on the arrival date stated on your accommodation booking voucher without prior warning to BaliHotelFinder.Com ("a no show") this shall be considered a cancellation.

    In the event of a no show without prior warning you may not be entitled to any refund. Any refund is dependent on the accommodation providers’ cancellation / no show policy. This policy is set out in the confirmation email that you receive from BaliHotelFinder.Com.

    7. Payment Details

Payment transactions on the BaliHotelFinder.Com website are encrypted by a secure payment system endorsed by some of the world's leading banks and our site is verified by Thawte.

    This technically secure environment ensures that credit card details cannot be intercepted and are not revealed to anyone other than to financial institutions required to process payment instructions from the customer.

    8. Booking cancellation OR MODIFICATION

    You may cancel or modify your booking at any time prior to your arrival date. To cancel or amend a booking before arrival at the hotel please contact BaliHotelFinder.Com by email, fax or telephone.

Once the refund instructions leave our bank it can take up to one month for the proceeds to arrive in your account.

    Cancellations

    If you cancel the reservation prior to your arrival date, you may be charged a cancellation charge. BaliHotelFinder.Com will refund you the amount paid under the contract minus any cancellation charges incurred by the accommodation provider. Typically, but not always :

     

  • cancellation more than 7 days preceding your check-in date : you pay 20USD ( banking fee + administration fee )
  • cancellation 7 days or Less preceding your check-in date : you pay 1 night per room charge. If your booking was for only 1 night then the full amount will be charged.
  • Any cancellation policies dictated by the hotel will always supersede the typical cancellation policy stated above and those hotel policies will be set out in the confirmation email that you receive from BaliHotelFinder.Com. In such case our Customer Service Agents will of course inform you clearly and completely. Otherwise it will follow the typical cancellation policy stated above.

    Please note that the cancellation charge and/or period quoted refer to the time and date in the booked destination.

    Cancellation shall only come into force when confirmation of your cancellation is received by BaliHotelFinder.Com, as opposed to when you send the cancellation notification to BaliHotelFinder.Com. You shall be responsible for obtaining the confirmation and/or acknowledgement of receipt of the cancellation of the reservation by BaliHotelFinder.Com.

    Reservations made via BaliHotelFinder.Com may be cancelled by either party with no penalty whatsoever in the event of force majeure, such as, without restriction, war, revolution, acts of terrorism, closure of borders, epidemics, catastrophes which may affect the various destinations and, specifically, the location of the accommodation provider.

    In the event that BaliHotelFinder.Com, at its own discretion, considers that a booking has been made fraudulently, the booking shall be cancelled and the transaction value will be returned to the same Credit card used for the transaction or BaliHotelFinder.Com will wait until the credit card issuing a bank deduct the money from BaliHotelFinder.Com in the form of a Chargeback.

Any shortened stays on the hotel will be subject to 10% of the amount refunded to you (plus any additional cancellation charges in line with the hotel cancellation policy).

    Modifications to extend the reserved period shall be subject to availability and any increase in price will be charged and become payable immediately.

    Important

  • Any accommodation ratings and/or categories have been provided by the accommodation providers and are in accordance with local regulations applicable to each country. Therefore accommodation in one country may not be similar in terms of services and quality to accommodation in another, despite stating that it is of the same category or rating.
  • BaliHotelFinder.Com will advise you of any information supplied by the accommodation provider regarding the existence and duration of any refurbishment or renovation works within the accommodation. Since BaliHotelFinder.Com is merely acting as an agent in passing on information supplied by the accommodation provider, BaliHotelFinder.Com will not accept any claim from you regarding refurbishment or renovation work of which BaliHotelFinder.Com has not been advised or which extends beyond the planned date of conclusion.
