1. THE BOOKING
These Terms and Conditions and the Booking Form, to be signed for each booking (the Booking Agreement), contain all the provisions of your booking with Impera Businesses Group LLP. They apply equally to you, the Group Leader, as to all guests staying in the property and visitors you invite to the Property, including staff, friends, and service providers (Occupants).
Your booking concerns a lodging in a furnished property with services to be delivered by Impera Businesses Group LLP and such other third party supplier(s) as may be requested. All bookings are governed by a standard check-in time to the property on the day of arrival at 4pm and a check-out at 10am on the day of departure. Early arrivals and late departures will be accommodated where possible only if there is no back-to-back booking in the property on that day and must be agreed in writing prior to arrival.
Unless otherwise agreed, if you do not comply with the check-out time, we reserve the right to withhold your security deposit and charge an amount to it equal to one day of extra rental pro-rata.
