GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALES
These General Terms and Conditions of Leo Trippi SA ("GTC") apply to all bookings with or through Leo Trippi SA or any of its affiliates ("Leo Trippi") of any property rental, hotel booking, ancillary services or holiday ("Holiday").
It is recommended that you as the customer make a print out of the GTC valid at the time of making any booking.
Leo Trippi acts as an intermediary and/or booking agent for properties being rented and Holidays being arranged and to be delivered by one or more third party(ies), including without prejudice to the generality of the above, acting as an intermediary and/or booking agent on behalf of (i) individual chalet operators providing a packaged chalet/villa rental holiday, (ii) owners or agents of owners of properties offering his/her properties for rental and (iii) individual service providers separately delivering services for the purpose of the Holiday ("Providers"). Any contract regarding such Holiday is directly concluded between you, as the customer, and the individual one or more Providers, as the case may be. Leo Trippi is not a contract party to such a contract, but is entitled to a fee for its intermediary activities.
Leo Trippi is not a registered yacht chartering broker. All chartering of yachts facilitated by Leo Trippi shall be concluded through a registered yacht chartering company specified by Leo Trippi ("Yacht Charter"). Any contract regarding such Yacht Charter shall be concluded between you, as the customer, the owner of the yacht and the stakeholder (as defined in the relevant MYBA Charter Agreement). The relevant yacht broker acting on your behalf may or may not be a contract party to such a contract, but is entitled to a fee for its intermediary activities. Leo Trippi is not a contract party to such a contract and does not act as broker, intermediary and/or booking agent. Accordingly, notwithstanding anything contained in these GTC, these GTC do not apply to any Yacht Charter.
All bookings made through Leo Trippi will be subject to the general terms and conditions and rental arrangements of the respective Provider(s), as well as, the GTC and, you, as a customer, agree that by making a booking through Leo Trippi, you are bound by those terms and conditions.
You, as the customer, conclude your contract(s) directly with the relevant Provider(s) in respect of any Holiday. If you procure or reserve a Holiday from different Providers, you conclude an individual contract with each Provider and accept its respective general terms and conditions and/or rental arrangement. Leo Trippi, as intermediary and/or agent, is not a party to the contract(s) with such Provider(s).

No reservation or booking of any Holiday through Leo Trippi will be valid unless and until Leo Trippi has received the required deposit/initial payment to secure a booking, as well as, a signed booking confirmation from a customer in a form acceptable to Leo Trippi and the relevant Providers in their sole discretion (which signed confirmation, for the avoidance of doubt, shall constitute an agreement to the general terms and condition of Leo Trippi acting as intermediary, as well as, the general terms and conditions and rental arrangements of the relevant Provider(s)).

As a general rule, customers are required to make an initial payment to confirm the booking (without which no price or booking can be guaranteed) and a final payment a few weeks or months in advance of the arrival date. Certain Providers may also require a security deposit.
If a customer fails to make the payments in accordance with the relevant payment terms of the booking, Leo Trippi and/or the relevant Providers shall be entitled to immediately terminate the agreement for the Holiday between the customer and the relevant Providers and refuse the customer access to the property. In this event, no refund or compensation shall be due to the customer from Leo Trippi or the relevant Provider.

The cancellation of a booked Holiday is subject to the cancellation terms set out in the signed Booking Form. As a general rule, booked Holidays cannot be modified or cancelled without payment of cancellation, modification or administrative fees. These fees can amount up to the whole of the price of the cancelled or modified Holiday or the relevant part thereof. If a client wishes to cancel a booked Holiday, he/she must notify Leo Trippi in writing.
If the reason for your cancellation is covered by the terms of any insurance policy you have purchased you may be able to reclaim any applicable non-refunded fees or cancellation charges from the insurers (also see paragraph 8 below). Leo Trippi cannot be held responsible for costs incurred by a customer in relation to a cancelled Holiday or any part thereof.
If a customer wishes to make any changes to his/her booked Holiday, he/she must notify Leo Trippi in writing as soon as possible.

6. Use of the Property
Customers shall use the property booked for the Holiday only for the purpose for which it has been rented to them (personal lodging). It is forbidden to use the premises for any kind of commercial use during the rental (photo shoots, seminars, large parties etc.) unless expressly agreed in writing by Leo Trippi or the relevant Provider or to take and/or use photographs of the Property for any commercial purpose.
Customers shall not assign the rental agreement nor sublet the property in any circumstance whatsoever.
7. Rules and Safety Precautions
Many Holidays booked through Leo Trippi are for the rental of private luxury homes and not hotels. There are no legal notices for precaution as customers may find in luxury hotels. Properties may contain a list pertaining to Rules and Security Precautions concerning the use of the properties or their facilities. Please read these Rules and Safety Precautions carefully if they are provided since they are an integral part of the contractual arrangement with the relevant Providers. All customers and other occupants undertake to adhere to these Rules and Safety Precautions.
Please note that not all properties have safety deposit boxes.
If there is an alarm in the property booked, customers are required to ensure that it is switched on whenever they leave the property and at night before going to bed. Please note that the failure to do so could impact whether or not the property's insurance will cover any losses in case of burglary.
Please note that all properties available through Leo Trippi will not have the same levels of safety measures in relation to children as customers may have in their homes and the supervision of children is the sole responsibility of customers.
If in the opinion of Leo Trippi, any Provider, or any other person in authority, a customer or a member of his/her party behaves in a manner, which causes or is likely to cause a danger, excessive disturbance (i.e. to neighbours), damage to the property, or acts in breach of any provision of any of the booking documents, the Holiday booked may be terminated immediately and the customer shall be asked to leave the property. In this event, the customer shall not receive any refund and the customer shall be fully liable for any expense incurred as a result of his/her behaviour or the behaviour of any member of his/her party.
8. Damages / Security Deposit
The property shall be checked by the owner, his/her agent or another Provider before and after the Holiday. Customers shall be liable for any deterioration or damages caused to the furniture/utilities contained in the property. We recommend that customers' ensure that their insurance policy covers accidental damage to the property and its contents. Furthermore, customers shall be liable for all costs related to the loss of any keys provided to them on the first day of the Holiday.
Any Security Deposit shall be returned to a customer as soon as possible, but in any event at the latest by within 30 days of the end of the Holiday, unless the terms and conditions of any Provider provides otherwise. If a customer or any member of his party has caused any deterioration or damages to the property, these damages will be deducted from your Security Deposit and if necessary, from his/her credit card.
9. Problems with the Providers
If you have any problem with any Provider (e.g. services badly supplied, damage caused etc.) you must raise your complaint or bring any claim directly against the Provider and inform Leo Trippi immediately. Leo Trippi will use all reasonable endeavours to assist you and try to find a solution with the Provider concerned.
10. Exclusion of liability
Leo Trippi is not liable for any damages, loss, death or personal injury suffered by any customer in relation to any Holiday provided by any Provider.

Operators of Travel Packages may be liable for the proper performance of their services. Tour operators and intermediaries may take recourse against a Provider if it has compensated a customer for a non-performance by the Provider.
