Terms & Conditions
The Client shall pay a deposit of 25% of the Total Rental Amount. The remaining balance is due 4 (four) weeks before the rental period or at check-in, depending on the house. If booking within 4 (four) weeks of the rental date, the Total Rental Amount shall be paid at time of booking, only for the houses who demand it. In any other case, the deposit of 25% of the Total Rental Amount will be paid at time of booking, and the remaining at check-in. If any payment is not made within the times set forth herein, P.E.H Rent-a-House, Lda. may treat the booking as cancelled, and the usual refund terms shall apply (see below). The Total Rental Amount may be adjusted to reflect changes in exchange rates for bookings arranged more than six months in advance.
Villas and apartments are not commercial entities like hotels. Properties offered by P.E.H Rent-a-House, Lda. must be booked far in advance and are not easily re-rented. We strongly recommend clients take out Travel Insurance to protect against a medical emergency or certain other unforeseen circumstances which preclude the client from traveling. Cancellation charges will be levied as follows: (i) on receipt of the cancellation 60 (sixty) days or more before the rental period the charge will be equal to the booking deposit, (ii) on receipt of the cancellation less than 60 days before the rental period the charge will be the full amount of the rental. If P.E.H rent-a-house, lda. is able to re-let the property for the same period, the cancellation charge will be the initial deposit.
Client Responsibility / Security Deposit
Individual owners may require additional security deposits, as a security against property loss or damage and unpaid charges or debts. The Client is responsible for ensuring the property is left in a reasonable condition of cleanliness and in the same condition of repair as upon arrival. Any extra cleaning, loss or damage to the property, or debts or charges incurred will be itemized and charged to the Client. Clients are required to act in a responsible manner at all times, and to act with respect towards other guests, neighbors, the owner and their staff.
P.E.H Rent-a-House, Lda reserves the absolute right to require any individual to vacate a property for disruptive behavior, in which case there would be no refund of any rental payment.
