Without limiting the operation of Clause 7.1, RTC may implement a change to the Services where it arises from:
In exchange for providing the Service, RTC keeps a small portion of the host's price of each stay (10%). As a guest, you agree to pay the amount posted by the host with whom you have chosen to stay. As a host, posting a listing is free, but you agree to pay RTC its then-current service charge for each guest's stay. Some optional services or functionality may incur additional fees.
RTC will retain its commission, booking fee and any credit card charges from the booking deposit paid by the Customer and forward the balance to the Property Owner.
The remainder, (booking deposit less Commission, booking fee and any credit card charges), will be forwarded to the Property Owner at the end of the Calendar month in which it is received, subject to a cut off date 7 days prior to the end of the Calendar month. Despite Clause 8.1 to 8.3, if at any time payment to the Property Owner is made in currency other than £ Sterling the charges incurred when exchanging the currency are the responsibility of the Property Owner and RTC reserve the right to deduct them from any any payments made. RTC reserves the right to increase its Charges. RTC will provide one month’s written notice of such an increase of costs to the Property Owner.
Rentacle does not do business as an owner or operator of hotel or motel rooms, nor is it a provider of rooms, lodging or accommodations. Neither does Rentacle own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, rent, re-rent, manage and/or control hotel rooms, motel rooms or any other lodgings or accommodations. Rentacle does not act as an agent for any providers or users of hotel rooms, motel rooms, or other lodging or accommodations. Rentacle merely makes available a marketplace for Hosts and Travellers to meet and arrange for accommodations. Rentacle is not a contracting agent or representative of the Host or Traveller. Instead, Rentacle’s role is solely to facilitate the availability of this marketplace for the Host and Traveller and to provide services related thereto, and any agreement for the use of any accommodations is solely between the Host and Traveller, and not Rentacle. You understand that we are acting solely as an intermediary for the collection of rents and fees between you and any hosts or guests with whom you choose to enter into a transaction. We cannot and do not offer tax advice to either hosts or guests.
On cancellation by the property owner RTC will offer when possible an alternative apartment. If there are no properties available RTC will proceed to fully refund the 10% deposit paid in advance.
On cancellation of the reservation by the Customer, RTC will retain the 10% deposit paid at the time of the booking as a cancellation charge.
RTC reserves the right to cancel a reservation if the total payment has not been received from the Customer 6 weeks prior to the Holiday or, in the case of Holidays reserved less than 2 months prior to the holiday, if the total payment has not been received 10 days from the Booking Confirmation.
RTC reserves the right to cancel a reservation under any circumstances.
RTC will endeavour to mediate in the event of a dispute between the Property Owner and the Customer but accept no liability either for any damage caused to the Property by the Customer or for any failure by the Property Owner to satisfy the Customer’s requirements.
As a guest, you are responsible for leaving the property in the condition that it was given to you. In the event that a host claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items.
