					Positano Dreams Apartment Rentals Terms & Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions carefully as they form the contract for the rental.

Bookings are made through the Positano Dreams website (positanodreams@alice.it) who acts as
agents for the owners.

A confirmed booking is when a deposit or full payment is received. An email will be sent on receipt
of the confirmed booking with a booking reference. Full payment is due as per the terms of clause 3.
Once full payment has been received you will be sent the full address of the property, the owners’
name and telephone number, directions to the property and access arrangements.

When the property is booked a deposit is to be paid of 30% of the rental price. Eight weeks before
the arrival date the balance must be made in full. An email reminder will be sent to you 9 weeks
before the arrival date.

If you cancel your booking up to 56 days prior to the arrival date the deposit of 30% will be kept as a
penalty. Cancellation charges after this are on a sliding scale as follows:
         Between 56-42 days     50% of rental
         Between 41-28 days     75% of rental
         Between 27-0 days      100% of rental

If Positano Dreams has to cancel the apartment rental a full refund will be given unless alternative
suitable accommodation can be offered.

losses during your rental. The owners insure the property and any claim must be made to them

The properties offered are part of the owners own home and, as such, reflect local values and ways
of life. We hope you will appreciate the chance to sample the true Italian lifestyle.

Travel Insurance
We recommend you take out full travel insurance to cover any medical or other unforeseen
problems you may incur, although we hope this will not be used. We can accept no responsibility for
any uninsured losses.

You are expected to care for the property during your rental period and leave it in the same good

properly trained and will be charged at €70.00 per animal per week. Confirmation will be made at
the time of booking.

Number of People per Property
Each property has a maximum number of people allowed to stay and this must not be exceeded.
Any additional people staying at the property will be evicted.

We are sure you will enjoy the property and have a wonderful stay. However, if you encounter any
