2. PRICES AND PAYMENT
The payment by credit cards is made in Croatian Kuna. If you have a different currency on your credit card a conversion to Croatian Kunas will be made by your credit card company. The reservation is binding, and an advance payment in the amount of 30% of the agreed accommodation price is required at the reservation, after which the reservation is confirmed, the contract with the owner is concluded and these General Business Terms and Conditions, which make a constituent part of the villa rental contract is accepted. After the completion of the reservation process and payment MY LUXORIA shall send a written reservation confirmation by email and it represents a Rental contract concluded with the owner. The rental contract is considered concluded at the moment when MY LUXORIA receives the paid advance amount. The costs of water, gas, electric power and internet as well as bed-linen, towels, kitchen towels, final cleaning of the interior, maintenance of the swimming-pool and exterior, registration of stay and residential tax and the value added tax are included in the accommodation rental price.

For the rest payment (70% of the agreed accommodation price) all payment methods like for the advance payment are permitted. The payment by credit cards, pay pal and bank transfer has to be made no later than 30 days before the arrival to the villa so that MY LUXORIA has enough time for forwarding the payment to the owner.

MY LUXORIA will endeavour to advise you of any work occurring, but work can occur at any time without our prior knowledge. The guest is obliged to obey the instructions of any kind which refer to the usage of swimming pools and which are given by the owner or MY LUXORIA due to his/her own safety. The guest is responsible for using a swimming pool in any sense. The children must not be present at the swimming pool area without the supervision of adults. The guest uses the swimming pool at his/ her own responsibility. If the accommodation is reserved out of the summer season it might happen that the swimming pool is out of use. You should take into consideration that the usage of whirlpools is related to certain health risks, and you use it at your own responsibility. The water in the whirlpools might not be warm until the late evening hours on the day of the guest’s arrival. It is forbidden to stand on the whirlpool lids. The lids are not designed and adjusted to bear weight of a person and can be easily broken. In case that the lid is broken, the guest is obliged to compensate damage directly to the owner.
11. TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT
Villas contain all necessary devices, technical equipment and other conveniences that secure a pleasant stay to the guest. The owner is obliged to secure the proper function of all devices in the villa. In case of a nonfunction or failure of any of the devices the guest shall inform the owner and/or MY LUXORIA about the occurred situation so that MY LUXORIA could demand from the owner to organise the repair and remove the failure as soon as possible. The owner is obliged to remove the reported failure within a reasonable period. The owner is liable directly to the tenant for the failures, and MY LUXORIA shall undertake everything possible to repair or remove the failures or other irregularities in the shortest possible period.
12. SECURITY DEPOSIT
The guest is obliged to leave a deposit in cash on the arrival to the villa for the insurance of the possible caused damages. The deposit sum that the guest is obliged to give to the owner at the arrival shall be stated in a written reservation confirmation. The deposit serves as a security to the owner for caused damages in the villa, and the owner is entitled to cover the damage from the deposit. In case that the caused damage is higher than the deposited sum, the guest is obliged to pay the total damage amount to the owner. If no damage is caused to the villa, the owner is obliged to return the deposited sum to the guest at the takeover of keys at the guest’s departure.
The guest is obliged to behave responsibly towards the rented villa with an appropriate observance. The guest is obliged to return the villa in the condition in which he/she received it. For any caused damage the guest is liable directly to the owner and the owner is entitled to use a deposit to cover the sum of the actual damage in accordance with the Clause 12 of these Conditions. If the deposit sum does not cover the damage the guest is obliged to pay the difference up to the total damage amount directly to the owner. An intentional property damage or disturbance of public order is considered a severe breach of provisions of the Rental contract, in which case the owner and/or MY LUXORIA are authorized to terminate the Rental contract which comes into force immediately, without the notice period, and the guest is obliged to permanently leave the villa within 2(two) hours together with all the persons who stay there, and he/she is not entitled to demand a return of the paid accommodation price from the owner or MY LUXORIA. The guest is obliged to report to the owner immediately the occurrence of any kind of damage on the villa or property around the villa during the rental period.

In case no damage is caused, the owner is obliged to return the deposit from the Clause 12 of these Conditions to the guest. It can be considered that the damage is also a need for an additional cleaning due to the especially bad condition in which the guest returned the villa to the owner, and the owner is entitled to use a deposit to cover that damage. MY LUXORIA has no liability for the possibly caused damages to the owner or to the guest if he/she does not want to return the deposit. All possible disputes the owner and the guest shall settle between himself/herself without MY LUXORIA.
If guest has a problem whilst at your booked villa such as insufficient cleaning, damage or other irregularities, they should bring it to the attention of villa owner so that there is an opportunity to put it right at the time. If the complaint is not settled in a satisfactory way for the guest, the guest shall contact directly MY LUXORIA by phone or email in order to settle the complaint in a satisfactory way. Written complaints are delivered to the email address: email@example.com.
15. LOWEST PRICE GUARANTEE
MY LUXORIA guarantees to its guests that on the official pages of the agency www.myluxoria.com the accommodation prices for individual offered villas are the lowest, i.e. that the same villa cannot be found in advertisements at the lower prices than ours. In case that the guest gets on some other web pages, offers, agency catalogues etc. a more favorable offer for the same villa in the same period, under the same conditions and in the same currency before the reservation than the price which offers MY LUXORIA and delivers an evidence about it to the address of MY LUXORIA, the agency guarantees a rental contract conclusion for the same villa in the same period and under the dame conditions with an additional 5% (five percent) discount on the lower offered evidenced price. The lowest price guarantee is not valid if the price difference is a consequence of the tax or stamp duty increase or significant changes in the exchange rate. It is also not applicable if the lower prices on other web pages are not up-to-date, and it is not possible to make a reservation at such prices, and in case of special last-minute offers. The lowest-price guarantee is applicable only at the moment of reservation and it cannot be applied later or after the already carried out and paid reservation.
16. SPECIAL REQUESTS
If the guest has special requests that are not included in the accommodation price (such as cooks, waiters, special food etc.), they shall be fulfilled, if there is a possibility, by the owner or a third party. Additional services must be announced in advance by email in order to be fulfilled, if there is a possibility, in the top quality. MY LUXORIA neither provides additional services nor charges them, but only gives a support in their arrangement, and MY LUXORIA cannot be considered liable for the quality of services provided by third parties.
17. ACT OF GOD
In case that the concluded Rental contract cannot be fulfilled or its fulfillment becomes significantly difficult due to an act of God (e.g. war, natural disaster, environmental disaster, epidemics, closing of borders, strike and similar act of God) which could not be foreseen at the time of the rental contract conclusion, MY LUXORIA and the owner may terminate the Rental Contract as neither MY LUXORIA, nor the owner can be deemed liable in the above mentioned cases.
