You are kindly requested to also call or text the phone number given to you upon your reservation when you are leaving the airport or train station of your arrival destination to go to your property.

If you choose our car service, then there is no need to call us (your driver will call us for you).

Failure to do so will result in an extra charge at your expense (equal to the price of the missing/broken items). This includes lost or stolen keys. Please notify DesignerStay of any damage or loss of property as soon as possible.

 

Cancellation policy

 

Full payment is required when the property is booked. Payment must be made 24 hours after reservation in order to guarantee booking.

Cancellations are non refundable unless otherwise agreed upon.

Kindly bear in mind that should you leave the rental property before the end of your designated stay, we will not provide any reimbursement. These reasons include but are not limited to sickness of any kind, changing your mind about the property that you chose, or an unplanned return to your country, etc.

Responsibility


Designertay is responsible for making arrangements for the services offered. The carriers, hotels, properties and other suppliers providing services are independent contractors and are not agents, employees, servants, or joint venturers of Designerstay or its affiliates. Airline flights and routings are subject to change by the airline and will not result in any refunds. Flight delays and other transportation changes are unfortunate, but are an inherent risk of travel and are therefore outside the control and responsibility of Designerstay. All certificates and other travel documents for travel services issued by Designerstay are subject to the terms and conditions specified by the supplier and to the laws of the countries in which the services are supplied. If the services included in the tour cannot be supplied or if there are changes in an itinerary for reasons beyond the control of Designerstay, the company will arrange for provision of comparable services.

Designerstay reserves the right to accept, reject or expel travellers, and to make changes in the itinerary or services whenever the company deems it necessary to the comfort, convenience or safety of the trip participants, and to cancel a trip at any time. If Designerstay cancels a tour, the company has no responsibility beyond the refund of monies paid to the company by the traveler.

Neither Designerstay nor its affiliates shall be liable for any damage or loss including personal injury, death, property loss, delays, change in air services, sickness, strike, war, quarantine, terrorism, bankruptcy, weather, upset, disappointment, inconvenience, or expense occasioned by any act or omission of any supplier or person providing tour services. Also, Designerstay is not responsible for failure of clients to follow instructions given in travel documents including, but not limited to, check-in and check-out times and baggage handling, and failure to obtain required documentation such as passports, visas and health certificates where required. In the above cases, travelers will not be entitled to any refund. Only Designerstay representatives, who possess written authority to do so, may vary, add or waive any term or condition in this contract, to include terms or conditions set forth in the preceding provisions. Any legal proceedings both on behalf of or against Designerstay must be instituted only in a federal or state court located in New York, and such claim will be decided using the laws of the state of New York. Any legal proceeding against the company must commence no later than one year after the travel services have been completed.

The tour operators assume no responsibility in this connection. Transportation within the United States may be provided by any member carrier of ARC.
