Terms & Conditions
1. Our Service
Through the website we (Surfholidays.com) provide an online platform through which all types of temporary accommodation can advertise their rooms for reservation, and surf schools their products for booking, and through which visitors to the website can make such reservations. By making a reservation through Surfholidays.com, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the accommodation/surf school provider at which you book. From the point at which you make your reservation, Surfholidays.com act solely as an intermediary between you and the accommodation/surf school, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant provider and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the accommodation/surf school provider.
Either a deposit or the full amount must be paid by the Consumer on the Surfholidays.com website in order to secure a booking. This is clearly marked on each option when in the booking steps. If only a deposit is required the Consumer must pay the balance upon arrival at the accommodation/surf school.
3. Accommodation Cancellations
Each Accommodation property has its own cancellation terms which are marked in the Conditions area of its page on Surfholidays.com.
4. Surf Lesson Cancellations
A Consumer must give a days notice when cancelling surf lessons otherwise they will be charged the full amount.
