Rentals commence at 15:00 on the day of arrival and end at 11:00 on the day of departure unless different check-in and check-out times have been agreed, subject to prior arrangement and an additional fee, in which case the latter shall define the rental period. This period is hereafter referred to as the “Rental Period”.
The Rental Period dates will be stated on the reservation confirmation provided to the Guest when they book and cannot be exceeded unless Paymán Club gives written approval.
If there is any delay in vacating the property beyond the agreed time a full day’s rental is charged to the Guest. The Guest will be liable for any cost, of whatever nature, incurred because of an unauthorised extension.
All prices are quoted in UK Pounds Sterling, unless otherwise specified, and the prices quoted include VAT at the prevailing UK rates if applicable. All prices are based on costs prevailing at the time of quotation and may be subject to change.
Unless otherwise specified, the prices quoted for all serviced property include utilities and taxes. Any extra charges are at the management’s discretion.
Please note that check-ins before 15:00 and after 20:00 carry an additional charge of £10 per hour up to 2 hours and after that 50% of the nightly rate. The earliest possible check-in is 12:00, subject to availability. The last check-in for this property is 23:00. Arrivals after 23:00 will not be granted access to the property and no refunds will be given. Check-in for last-minute bookings is only possible 1 hour after payment has been processed.

The Guest cannot check out later than 4 PM, otherwise, they have to pay a full night (For Austria properties, city taxes will be added to these amounts.)
A Security Deposit is required prior to arrival for each unit booked as advertised at the time of booking. This will be captured as a pre-authorisation of funds from your payment card before arrival and will be auto-released 48 hours from departure if no charge against it is made (in the case of Hotels, this Security Deposit can be authorised upon arrival).
Should a charge be made, you will be notified of the amount and the reason over an email. An additional fee may be charged if house rules are broken or if the damage exceeds the amount held as a pre-authorisation.
Please note that funds could take up to 14 working days to show as available again on your card, depending on your card provider’s timescales, and this delay is outside of our control.
The amount of Security Deposit for Serviced Apartments will be determined prior to the arrival of the Guest. For Hotels the following figures will be applied:

A deposit may be withheld if refuse is not recycled correctly or not placed in the appropriate bins. If a bin collection date of which the guest has been advised is missed, the deposit may be likewise withheld. Any bank fees transferred with the refund of the Security Deposit will be charged to the guest. If the bank charges exceed the figure that needs to be refunded, that figure shall not be transferred.
The full price of the booking is due at the time of booking. For bookings through the website, payment must be completed online at the time of booking to secure the reservation. For bookings placed over the phone, the Guest is given a specific time to make the payment prior to the arrival and submit the proof of payment via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
