Guest Terms and Conditions

We, as Zennova  OE, Tsimiski 27, 546 24 Thessaloniki, Greece, hereinafter referred to as "Zennova ", offer our services exclusively on the basis of the terms and conditions, which were sent to you in full as part of the Internet booking form before booking. Please read these carefully as you will be acknowledging the terms and conditions as binding in their entirety to you and persons registered with you when booking.

 

1. Conditions of Payment

The payment terms of the price you selected apply.

2. Cancellation Policy

As described, on the selected price and on your booking confirmation.

If there is no complete description, the following applies:
"If a guest wishes to cancel his/her reservation, 100% of the travel price will be refunded if notice of cancellation is 61 days before the check-in date, or earlier. If the reservation is cancelled within 60-31 days before the check-in date, 70% will be refunded. In case of a cancellation between 30-2 days before the start of travel a cancellation fee of 50% of the travel price will be charged. In case of a later withdrawal before the start of travel, the cancellation fee is 95%, if clients fail to start travel, 100% of the travel price are charged.

The payment balance must be paid 30 days prior to arrival."

A booking is considered cancelled on the day that Zennova  has received a written cancellation from the guest.

3. Insurance Requirements

Holiday and travel Insurance, including cancellation cover, is essential for your own protection and we strongly recommend that you and all members of your party be suitably insured. If you choose to travel without adequate holiday insurance, we will not be liable for any losses however arising in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.

4. Damage deposit

A security deposit will be requested at check in, to cover any damages caused to the property and / or condominium. The security deposit will be returned to the customer, until 7 days after the check-out date, if there is no damage to register.

The aforementioned is for standard bookings only. If you are renting a property to hold a function, in addition to the venue fee, we will also require an additional damage deposit.

Groups under the age of 25 may be subject to an additional damage deposit.

The guest must ensure that the property is returned in a presentable and tidy state including the washing of dishes, cutlery, and kitchen utensils etc.; emptying of the refrigerator, the freezer, and dust bins; cleaning the barbecue; and removing rubbish/trash. This is required even though the guest has paid a final cleaning or such a cleaning is already included in the rent. Zennova reserves the right to deduct any additional cleaning costs from the security deposit if the guest should not leave the property in the above-mentioned state. Should you or any member of your party behave unrespectfully towards the property and its contents, Zennova has the right to ask all guests to vacate the property  immediately.

In some cases a generous allowance of water and electricity is included in the rental price; however, you will be charged for abuse of these services (leaving water on/hoses open and running them for long periods of time, leaving doors/windows open when using air conditioning/heating, etc.). Water and electricity readings are taken before and after every stay in every property.

5. Party Size

The holiday properties may only be occupied by the number of persons in the travel registration. Children count as persons. Property owners or their agents reserve the right to refuse admittance if this condition is not observed.

Entertainment parties and functions involving a large amount of invitees are strictly prohibited unless fully approved by Zennova in advance and notified to us (venue fees may apply). Should you make an unauthorized unauthorised   use of the property in such a way, Zennova has the right to ask all guests to vacate the property immediately and your security deposit will be fully forfeited until all applicable claims are fully assessed by the owner.

6. Property Standards

We have carefully selected and inspected all the properties that we advertise and we endeavor to maintain high standards. However, if you have a problem during your holiday, immediately inform the local representative who will then endeavor to put things right. If you fail to do this we cannot accept responsibility, as we have not had the opportunity to investigate and rectify the problem. Although we will make every effort to deal with problems promptly, a reasonable amount of time should be allowed for repairs to be completed by outside contractors.

Although Zennova carefully inspects and controls the holiday home before each single arrival, it could occur that a defect, fault or damage is detected. In such a case Zennova Customer Services should be informed in writing by email to info@zennova.gr within 24 hours after arrival.

Please note that we accept no liability for intermittent failure of public supplies or utilities such as water or electricity over which we have no control, nor of sewage systems, plumbing or mechanical equipment in villas, but shall use our best endeavors to arrange prompt repairs where possible.

Inevitably, items break or require maintenance, therefore please be aware that you may encounter maintenance staff and gardeners during your stay. Please also remember that these are people’s homes – please leave the villa in a reasonably clean and tidy condition, and remove all rubbish at the end of your stay. We reserve the right to charge for extra cleaning and rubbish removal if necessary, and to charge this to your credit or debit card.

7. Check in / Check out times

Your accommodation is available after 02.30pm on day of arrival and must be vacated by 11am on day of departure.

Check-in time is from 2.30pm to 7pm. In case of flight delays or inconvenience while travelling, clients should  contact us at the earliest. We cannot guarantee early check-ins or late check outs  unless confirmed by us in advance.

For check-in after 7pm a minimum fee of EUR 20 and after 11.30pm a minimum fee of EUR 35 is payable locally.

The maid, gardener, pool man need this time to prepare the accommodation properly for incoming guests. Although you are not required to vacate your property before 11am please be aware that staff may arrive before this time.

8. Change and Non Availability of accommodation

On rare occasions it may be unavoidable to change your chosen villa because of circumstances beyond our or the owners control; we will endeavor to inform you of this as soon as possible and offer you either alternative accommodation of similar or superior standard, a refund if nothing is suitable or discuss other options. No further claim against the owner or the letting agent for any loss suffered will be considered.

9. Liability

Zennova does not accept liability for any act or neglect on the part of the owners or any other person not within their employ or their control, nor for any accident, damage, loss, injury or expense, whether to person or property, which the tenants may suffer arising out of, or in any way connected with the letting. The owner and the letting agent also accepts no liability for loss of or damage to the tenants’ possessions on the owners’ property, force majeure or any other unpredictable events that Zennova could not have prevented.

Should a gross defect or fault be detected in a holiday home, Zennova will normally offer the tenant an equivalent holiday home of the same price level. Should the alternative holiday home be of a lower price, the price difference will be refunded. Should it not be possible to find a satisfactory solution due to a lack of available properties or due to the non-acceptance of the alternative holiday home by the tenant, the total rent or a part of the rent will be refunded according to the degree of liability determined by Zennova.

10. Accuracy

We endeavor to ensure that all the information on our website is accurate, however occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct details in such circumstances. We make every effort to make sure that descriptions, photographs of furniture and fittings etc. are accurate, however there may sometimes be changes we are unaware of, and therefore vary from our website copy and photographs. We accept no liability should a description or a photograph be inaccurate. If a particular facility offered in a property is essential to the booking of your holiday, please ensure that we are made aware of this prior to you completing the booking confirmation pages.

11. On Arrival

Immediately upon arrival at your holiday home please familiarize yourself with the layout of the property and identify any potential hazards e.g. unexpected steps, slippery surfaces, pool depths etc.

12. Pets

Pets are welcome at some of our properties. Please ask.

13. Swimming Poll

The swimming pool, when available, will be kept clean and operational by the property staff. If your rental period is before 15 June or after 15 September, please check with us if the swimming pool is operational. Some but not all properties will provide pool towels for guests use. Beach towels are usually not provided

14. Cooking Service

Most properties do not provide cook service unless specified otherwise.  Should you require a private cook or a caterer, please advise us at the time of booking. We cannot guarantee availability at any time but we will do our utmost to satisfy your request. All quoted charges will need to be prepaid at the time of booking the specified extra service.
Please note that we must be informed if a third party caterer has access to the house at any time.

13. Cleaning

The maid service will be on your day of arrival and day of departure only. If you are unsatisfied with the cleaning standards, we require immediate written notice upon arrival at the villa. The cleaner will return within 24 hours to rectify and clean any aspect which may have been overlooked.
