Terms & Conditions for Advertisers

By advertising on this website, cottage owners agree to the following terms and conditions:

Accuracy - West Wales Cottages cannot accept any legal responsibility for the accuracy of the advertisements, or any alleged breaches of contract on an advertiser's part and the advertiser indemnifies West Wales Cottages against all costs, expenses and losses arising out of a claim relating to the content of an advertisement. Advertisers are responsible for informing West Wales Cottages of any bookings taken by themselves. Advertisers should inform us immediately of any material change required in the description of the property.

Liability - West Wales Cottages does not warrant that the operation of the West Wales Cottages site will be uninterrupted or error-free. In no event shall West Wales Cottages be liable to the advertiser for any special, consequential, incidental or indirect damages, including lost profits. 

Cottage owners are entirely responsible for ensuring that their property and grounds are properly maintained, cleaned and prepared for guests for each booking. Complaints regarding cleaning and the preparation of properties received by West Wales Cottages will be referred to the owners.

Cottage owners are responsible for ensuring that their properties and contents are fully compliant with statutory regulations and fire safety.

All cottage advertisers must have specific holiday home liability insurance and West Wales Cottages cannot be held liable for claims arising from loss or damage to the contents of the property, loss of revenue, public liability or compensation.

Deposits/ payments: West Wales Cottages will take a part payment deposit for each booking. This deposit is non refundable to Hirers, but can be used by the Hirer as a deposit for another holiday at the property if booked within 6 months. The balance of payment will be sent to the owner by the Hirer 6 weeks before the holiday ( or as specified by the owner ).

Commission: Commission will be charged monthly at 10% on all bookings taken through our office. Commission will not be payable on bookings that are unable to take place because of Government restrictions/lockdowns etc.

Damage / Loss / extra cleaning etc - West Wales Cottages standard Terms and Conditions of rental state that the contract of hire is between the Hirer and the property owner. Any claim for 'loss of enjoyment', by guests for any reason, or any claim for damage, loss or extra cleaning caused by guests from the owners, is entirely the responsibility of the property owner. West Wales Cottages cannot act on an owner's or guest's behalf in cases of dispute arising from any cause.

Photographs -  West Wales Cottages will take photographs used on the website and reserve copyright to these and reserve the right, to amend, edit or refuse copy provided by advertisers. Photos taken by West Wales Cottages cannot be used on any other website for advertising purposes. Use of photos taken by West Wales Cottages elsewhere would result in a property being withdrawn from the website.

Star Grading - We do not require a star rating to list a property, although we would expect the minimum standard of advertised properties to be equivalent to at least a 4 star rating. Visit Wales' grading logos and logos from other Tourism / Travel grading schemes will not be displayed on index or listing pages as many properties do not subscribe to the Visit Wales or other similar schemes. To ensure fairness, the display of such logos on some properties only, might imply that these are of a higher standard than those that do not display ratings logos.

Advertising with other agencies - Advertisers must advise West Wales Cottages as soon as a booking is obtained elsewhere - This is to ensure that there is no possibility of double bookings. If West Wales Cottages processes a holiday booking that has been previously booked by another agent without West Wales Cottages being so informed, then the owner will be liable for the commission due at the time the booking was made. West Wales Cottages reserves the right to refuse or terminate advertising from advertisers using other agencies and not giving notice of bookings..

Priority on the order of advertising and the addition of banners on the listings of our websites will only be given to those properties who do not advertise with any other agencies.

Termination of advertising by West Wales Cottages - West Wales Cottages reserves the right to refuse any advertisement for the West Wales Cottages web site, and will not be liable for any loss or expense in so doing. If West Wales Cottages receives a complaint from a person who has rented an advertiser's property which West Wales Cottages, acting reasonably, considers is justified, or an advertiser knowingly double-books a property, or engages in any unacceptable practices or is in breach of its obligations to West Wales Cottages , then West Wales Cottages reserves the right to remove the property from the West Wales Cottages web site without notice. Failure to pay an invoice for commission owed will result in advertising being suspended.

Termination of advertising by the cottage owner - In the event that a cottage owner terminates their advertising with West Wales Cottages, then owners will be liable for any commission due for any outstanding bookings made  prior to the termination of advertising.

Cancellation of bookings by owners - In the event that an owner cancels a confirmed booking for which a payment has already been made, then the owner will be responsible for informing the guests and making any refunds. Owners will be liable for the commission due at the time the booking was made.
