UNIVERSIA is not involved in any way in the activities of BEROOMERS, limited to make available the domain, its look and feel, being exempted from any commercial relationship that may arise on the mentioned website.
For the purposes of the general conditions “Landlords” and “Users” are understood as follows:“Landlord”
Any natural or legal person that lists any accommodation.“User, Roomer or Client”
Any natural person that, looks for, registers or books any type of accommodation through the website.
We inform you that these general conditions are the terms and conditions applicable to the booking of accommodation and are available on our website permanently.
These general conditions regulate the terms and conditions of the contract applicable to the booking of accommodation through this platform.
The user must be of legal age (18 years old) and competently capable of contracting. By accepting these conditions, you declare that you are of legal age.
We recommend that you read everything beforehand, download and print them for conservation. We inform you that proof of usage and purchase will be kept and that the website does not have technical means of correcting errors.
The conditions of booking will be found in Spanish and are governed basically by Law 34/2002, of July 11, Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce and by Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of November 16 , which approves the revised text of the General Law for the Defense of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, among other applicable standards.
The purpose of this “online booking contract” is to enable, through our platform, the selection and booking of accommodation among other additional services. BEROOMERS and the landlords of the accommodations are independent parties. There is no relationship of any joint venture, employment relationship or franchise.
CANCELLATION POLICY AND BOOKINGS
The booking of accommodation is made exclusively on the website and the language selected by the user through this website. Once a booking is made, we proceed to confirm it to the user by email within 24 hours. In the event that the booking is not confirmed by the landlord within this period, it will be understood as “cancelled” by releasing BEROOMERS any pre-authorization of the credit card of said client, if applicable.
Subsequent to this booking, you must know that BEROOMERS is not part of the accommodation and lodging tenancy agreement that you have to sign with the landlord of the home, not forming part of it or assuming any responsibility regarding its execution and development. Without affecting that above, BEROOMERS is authorized by the landlord to receive charges from you in order to accept and process the booking.
If the User or Roomer requests the cancellation of the booking, before confirmation by the landlord, it will be understood as “cancelled” by releasing BEROOMERS any pre-authorization of the credit card of said client, if applicable.
If the User or Roomer requests the cancellation when the booking has already been accepted by the Landlord, and before the check-in date, the following policy will apply:
If more than 60 days are left for check-in, BEROOMERS will apply a penalty of 100% of the service fee paid by the roomer and will refund 100% of the booking amount.
If there are less than 60 days left for the check-in BEROOMERS will apply a penalty of 100% of the service fee paid by the roomer as well as 100% of the booking amount.
If the User or Roomer requests the cancellation when the booking has been accepted by the landlord, and after the date of the check-in (within the 48 hours after the check-in) the following procedure will be followed:
If the cause is not justified, a penalty of 100% of the service fee and 100% of the booking amount will be applied.
if the cause is justified, all amounts are returned (Service fee and boo amount).
For these purposes, the following reasons shall be considered as justified cause:
“The accommodation is not the one I've booked”.
“The accommodation is the one I’ve booked but is not habitable”.
The User or Roomer must send an email to email@example.com requesting cancellation and arguing the reasons for it and attached evidence of the reason given.
In the event that BEROOMERS assesses that one of the justified causes is applicable, the Landlord will not receive any amount for the booking, and BEROOMERS reserves the right to remove the landlord from the platform if the reason is attributable exclusively to the Landlord.
If the cancellation occurs for reasons attributable to the “Landlord” (for example the apartment is in poor condition or does not meet the habitability standards), the “User” may choose to be relocated in a similar accommodation or the refund of the amount of the booking.
In no case will the cancellation proceed if the user and landlord have already formalised the tenancy agreement for the accommodation.
PRICES AND PAYMENT METHODS
The price of the booking service includes a commission for the service (“service fee”) that will be informed prior to the contracting, as well as the payment of an amount equivalent to the first monthly payment or the amount for the formalisation of the reservation that stipulate the Landlord to satisfy the “User” (“booking amount”).
BEROOMERS is authorised by the landlord to receive charges and thus will make a charge on the account of your credit/debit card (Visa, MasterCard) that you provide to pay the booking amount.
You can pay by card or by transfer to the account that will be provided.
In case of payment by card, we will send a debit request to your bank, and the amount will not be debited to your account until you obtain authorisation from your bank. The debit term will depend on the rules applied to your form of payment (immediate, debit, deferred, etc).
In case of a rejection of the bank, the order will be automatically cancelled, and the user will be informed by email.
Your card can be declined for one of the following reasons:
The card could be expired. Check that it does not exceed the expiry date.
The limit of the card may have been reached. Check with your bank that the card has not exceeded the amount allowed to make purchases.
Some data entered may be incorrect. Check that all the necessary fields are correct.
The lack of payment of the booking will imply the cancellation of the same by BEROOMERS.
You agree to pay BEROOMERS the previously detailed amounts associated with the confirmed booking authorising the collection of these amounts by charging them to the credit card provided as part of the booking request. Once your booking transaction is confirmed you will receive a confirmation email that summarises your confirmed booking.
The applicable taxes will be included in accordance with the applicable legislation at the time.
