2. Use of The Dedica Anthology’s preliminary booking and online booking services
2.1. Preliminary Booking Services
The preliminary booking services are purely informative and are aimed solely at offering the User the opportunity to see what rooms are available at a hotel or in a city of his/her choice. The User undertakes not to use the Website for any illegal purpose or in breach of local, national and/or international laws, in particular as regards intellectual property, as specified in art. 4 below.
2.2. Online Booking Services
Online booking services are intended for the purpose of booking one or more rooms at any one of the The Dedica Anthology hotels.
b. Stipulation procedure
When using the above mentioned service, the User will receive an e-mail stating the booking confirmation procedure. Once the booking is completed, the User will receive an e-mail confirmation which will also serve as evidence of the booking. The User undertakes, in the course of the booking procedure and in making use of the Services, to provide accurate and truthful information and data, relieving The Dedica Anthology of any consequence and/or liability arising from any inaccuracy or untruthfulness of the same.
For each booking made, The Dedica Anthology will request the User’s credit card information as a guarantee.
d. Booking cancellation and penalty
Booking cancellations by the User must take place by 4 p.m. (hotel local time) of the day before the date of arrival. If the User should cancel after this deadline, or in the event of a no-show, The Dedica Anthology will charge the User a penalty equal to the amount of the first night of the stay (VAT and taxes included).
This clause shall not apply during high occupancy periods (fairs, meetings, events etc.) and in the case of bookings made at special rates. In such cases, only the respective special conditions shall apply.
f. Rules regarding children
Rules regarding children are determined by the administration of every The Dedica Anthology hotel facility, as established in current contracts. The Dedica Anthology may request documentation that allows adults to be identified as parents/holders of parental responsibility/teachers/guardians as authorised persons.
g. Prices per room and overnight stay
The prices, expressed in Euros, shall be as stated in writing at the time of booking for the stated period, including VAT. The Dedica Anthology reserves the right to change these rates, without prior notice, at its sole discretion, without this being applicable to bookings which have been already confirmed, except for changes in taxes and/or charges.
Booking fees are specified during the booking process. VAT and sales taxes will be applied to the rates, in addition to any other taxes which apply according to the local regulations of each country. The above mentioned local taxes must be paid directly to the hotel.
If the tax rate should change during the period between the date of booking and the date of the supply of the services, thus resulting in a price difference, depending on the tax regulation, the tax rate applied to the final price shall correspond to the rate applicable at the time of supply of the services or to the accrual, even if the rate at the time of the supply of the services should result in an increase in the final price compared to that communicated to the customer at the time of booking.
