Bath Tourism Plus
Standard Terms and Conditions for the Supply of Accommodation
1. Formation of the Contract
1.1. Completion and submission of a booking form constitutes an offer by you to reserve the accommodation specified in the form. Bath Tourism Plus acts as agent for the accommodation providers and the booking will be binding upon you and the accommodation provider when Bath Tourism Plus issues an acceptance form on behalf of the accommodation provider.
2.1. The total price of the accommodation will be stated in the booking form.
2.2. You are required to provide details of your debit or credit card when submitting the booking form online or when making a booking by telephone and by doing so you authorise the accommodation provider or Bath Tourism Plus on its behalf to deduct any sums due and payable by you in relation to the booking from that card.
2.3. Bath Tourism Plus will deduct a non-refundable deposit equal to 10% of the total accommodation price from your debit or credit card upon issuing the acceptance form.
2.4. You must pay the total accommodation price (less any deposit already paid) to the accommodation provider on or before the date you depart from the accommodation. Some accommodation providers may require a further deposit e.g. damage deposit, especially self-catering providers, or additional guarantee of payment prior to arrival, in which case you must contact the establishment as soon as possible to arrange this. Some establishments do not accept credit or debit card payment.
2.5. If booking an exclusive accommodation offer through Visit Bath, the individual terms and conditions may vary dependent on the offer. Please check the specific webpage relating to any such offer for full details.
3.1. In the case of a cancellation the deposit equal to 10% of the accommodation price and the booking fee, if applicable, are non-refundable.
3.2. If you cancel the booking a cancellation fee may become due and payable immediately by you as compensation to the accommodation provider. You must contact the accommodation provider as soon as you are able and request their cancellation terms and conditions.
3.3. If the accommodation provider is forced to cancel the booking for reasons outside of its control it will give you as much notice of the cancellation as is reasonably possible and it will reimburse any sums already paid by you to the accommodation provider in respect of the accommodation, but it will not have any further responsibility to you in respect of the cancellation.
3.4. If you do not cancel the booking but fail to arrive at the accommodation for the whole or any part of the period booked with the accommodation provider you may still be charged the total accommodation price.

You should contact the accommodation provider directly to agree arrival and departure times.
4.2. If you fail to vacate all or part of the accommodation premises by the requisite time the accommodation provider may make a charge for a further night's stay which shall be due and payable immediately by you. For the avoidance of doubt, failure to vacate includes any persons staying in your party remaining in the accommodation premises and you and/or they leaving goods and/or personal property in the accommodation premises (except by prior arrangement).
4.3. Bath Tourism Plus maintains descriptions of the accommodation on its website based on the information provided by the accommodation providers.

5. Information Provided by You
5.1. You must accurately state the number of people for whom you are booking accommodation.
