Standby Rates Terms and Conditions.
1. Booking Conditions:
By using the Web Site to book accommodation, you expressly agree to the following terms:
Should you need to cancel your booking within the Hotel's Cancellation Policy (# hours prior to 6pm on the day of arrival), your booking fee / service fee of up to $2.00 is non refundable and is forfeited.
Should you need to cancel your booking and have advised us outside of the Hotel's Cancellation Policy, the booking deposit is forfeited and a cancellation fee equal to 100% of your accommodation booking will be charged by the hotel direct to your credit card.
Please note. Some hotels operate their own individual cancellation policy. In this case the policy will be clearly displayed on your booking confirmation email and the stricter of the two policies will apply.
Should you need to amend your booking, this will require the booking to cancelled with the hotel and placed with the hotel as a new booking.
Please note. Some hotels operate their own individual cancellation policy. In this case the policy will be clearly displayed prior to booking and the stricter of the two policies will apply.

(b) We display the number of rooms and the rates that Properties advise us are available. We make an effort to ensure that this information is accurate.
(c) You authorise us to provide the Property with your credit card details. The property will hold your credit card details as security for your booking. On your arrival at the Property, you must make arrangements for payment directly with the Property. You acknowledge that we are not liable for any default or error on behalf of any third party (for example, a bank) in processing the debit to your credit card.
