These terms and conditions, as may be amended from time to time, apply to all our services directly or indirectly (through distributors) made available online, through any mobile device, by email or by telephone. By accessing, browsing and using our website or any of our applications through whatever platform (collectively referred to as the “platform”) and/or by completing a reservation, you acknowledge and agree to have read, understood and agreed to the terms and conditions set out below (including the privacy and cookies policy).
These pages, the content and infrastructure of these pages, and the online boat reservation service provided through the platform (the “service”) are owned, operated and provided by Boataround.com, a.s., Medena 17, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia (“Boataround.com”, “us”, “we” or “our”) and are provided for your personal, non-commercial use, subject to the terms and conditions set out below.
Through the platform, we (Boataround.com and its affiliate partners) provide an online platform through which all types of boat operators (for example, charters, marinas, individual boat owners, travel agents, collectively the “boat provider(s)”), can advertise their boats for rent, and through which visitors to the platform can make such rental. By making a rental through Boataround.com, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the boat provider at which you rent a boat. From the point at which you make your rental, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the boat provider, transmitting the details of your rental to the relevant boat provider and sending you a confirmation email on behalf of the boat provider.
When offering our services, the information that we show is based on the information provided to us by the boat providers. As such, the boat providers are given access to an on-line system through which they are fully responsible for updating the rental price, availability and other information which is displayed on our platform. Although we will use reasonable resources in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our platform or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or nondelivery of information. Each boat provider remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the information (including the rental price and availability) displayed on our platform.
Our services are made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to use, copy, sell, display, or reproduce any content or information, products or services available on our platform for any commercial or competitive activity.
All prices on the Boataround.com platform are per boat for your entire reservation, including VAT and all other taxes, unless stated differently. Please check the rental details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding.
Our service is free of charge and we will not charge you for our service or add any additional commission to the boat rental price. Boat providers pay a service fee (small percentage of the boat rental price) to us after the booker has paid the rental price.
Boat providers ask the rental price to be paid (fully or partly) to guarantee the rentals. You will be asked to guarantee your rental during the reservation process. Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of boat provider through a third party payment processor. Please check the rental details thoroughly for the payment conditions prior to making your rental.
By making a reservation on our platform you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation policy of that boat provider, and to any additional terms and conditions of the boat provider that may apply to your rental, including services or/and products offered by the boat provider. The delivery terms and conditions of a boat provider can be obtained with the relevant boat provider.
The cancellation policy is available on our platform on an individual rental page, during the reservation process and in the confirmation email. Please note that some rentals are not eligible for cancellation or change. Please check the rental details for any such conditions prior to making your reservation. We recommend that you read the cancellation and payment policy of the rental carefully prior to making your rental and remember to make further payments on time.
Please note that a rental may be cancelled (without a prior notice) if the relevant (remaining) rental amount cannot be collected on the relevant payment date in accordance with the relevant payment policy of the rental. Late payment, wrong bank, debit or credit card details, invalid credit/debit cards or insufficient funds are at your own responsibility and you shall not be entitled to any refund of the prepaid amount unless the boat provider agrees otherwise. If you wish to view, modify or cancel your rental, please see the confirmation email and follow the instructions there.
