LisboaVacation is an independent provider of quality Holiday/Vacation homes. By booking a LisboaVacation property you are agreeing to the following:

a. Contract– by reserving with us, you are entering a contract for a short-term rental, for the period agreed between you and us. The property can only be occupied during this period, at the end of which you will vacate the premises and return the keys.  No commercial activities/filming/parties are to take place without LisboaVacation’s permission.

b. Habitability– We make the uttermost effort to provide you with a fully functional apartment. In the unlikely event that the apartment is rendered inhabitable after your arrival, we will make our best effort to provide you with a similar accommodation for your stay. If that is not possible, we will refund the cost of the days that you were not able to occupy the property. If the apartment is inhabitable prior to your arrival, we will suggest alternative properties and assist you in booking them. In any case we will just be liable for the amounts that you actually paid us. If you have any issues with the apartment, kindly contacts us.

c. Security deposit/Cost of your stay– we require a security deposit in order to book the property. This will be refunded to you at the end of your stay, during check out or within 24h of departure, after verification that there is no damage in the apartment. Any damages will be paid from the deposit. If damage exceeds deposit we reserve the right of pursuing all legal means to recover damages. Theft will be reported to the authorities of Portugal and your home country.  The cost of your stay DOES NOT includes the deposit.  The deposit shall not be transferred for payment of optional services.

d. Banking/ Paypal/ Credit Card Payment fees–  In our attempt to keep prices competitive and provide value for money, LisboaVacation can not and will not absorb fees associated with payments. Credit card and Paypal payments via processor have a 3% surcharge.

e. Standard cancellation policy– The policy of the site where you made the booking (if not via LisboaVacation directly) will apply before the following. If you booked one of our non-refundable rates, there is not refund in the event of a cancellation.  For all other rates, cancellations up to 4 weeks prior to your arrival, a full refund of the deposit will be made to a bank account of your choosing (all bank/ paypal fees to be paid by Booker). For cancellations between 4 and 2 weeks prior to your arrival, we will issue a credit for a stay within the following 3 months in the value of the deposit. For cancellations within 2 weeks of arrival the deposit will be forfeited. Cancellation policies via the booking site you used will prevail. Changes to this policy may be made in writing in your confirmation letter.
