How the Site Works

The Site can be used to facilitate the booking of residential and other properties listed on the Site. As stated above, Kuero makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Guests to arrange for bookings of Accommodations. You understand and agree that Kuero is not a party to any agreements entered into between Guests and Owners, nor does Kuero have any control over the conduct of Owners, Guests or other users of the Site.  Kuero is not an Owner, a real estate broker, agent, insurer or operator of properties, including, but not limited to, hotel rooms, other any other type of lodging or temporary accommodation, nor is it a provider of properties, including, but not limited to, hotel rooms, other lodgings or Accommodations. Kuero’ responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the Site and Services and (ii) serving as the Owners’ collection agent for all payments not collected directly from Guests by Owners.

 

Much of the information regarding each Accommodation is provided by its Owners, including, on occasion, the photographs themselves.  Photographs of, and information about, an Accommodation are published on the Site to offer prospective guests a reasonable notion regarding the quality and characteristics of the Accommodation.  Photographs of the Accommodations are not necessarily accurate visual representations of the Accommodation nor its features and decor.

 

Although Kuero does endeavor to verify and update information about the Accommodations and to update photographs of the Accommodations published on the Site, Kuero does not endorse any User Content or any Accommodation and shall therefore not be liable to any user or Guest if the published information, User Content, or photographs do not reflect modifications to the décor or other features of the Accommodations made by their respective Owners.  Kuero does not control the condition, legality or suitability of any Accommodation.  Kuero is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all listings and Accommodations. Accordingly, any and all Reservations are made at the Guest’s own risk.

 

Bookings and Financial Terms

The Owners, not Kuero, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available Accommodations reserved through the Site and Services.  If you, as a Guest, choose to confirm a Reservation with Kuero, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Accommodation’s Owner, and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Accommodation imposed by the Owner. You acknowledge and agree that that you, and not Kuero, will be responsible for performing the obligations under any such agreements, that Kuero is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of any collection obligations hereunder, Kuero disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.

Only persons who have legal capacity in both their country of residence and the country where the Accommodation is located and who have capacity to guarantee payment of all contracted Services can make Reservations and execute a lease agreement with the Owner of the Accommodation.

 

Stay

The minimum stay required for most Accommodations is two nights; however, Accommodations may require minimum stays of periods as long as one week.

 

Reservation Procedure

You agree to the following procedure for making and confirming Reservations:

  1. a) Upon receiving a Reservation request, Kuero will contact the Owner to verify whether the Accommodation is available. Certain Accommodations are listed on the Kuero Site with the “Book Now” option. For Accommodations that can be reserved through this option, Owners have already provided Kuero with the availability of the Accommodations.
  2. b) If a Reservation request is submitted through the “Book Now” option, Kuero will contact the Guest within 24 hours to confirm the availability of the Accommodation.  If the “Book Now” option is not available for the relevant Accommodation, Kuero will contact the Guest to confirm whether the Accommodation is available on the requested dates at the email address provided after receiving the Owner’s confirmation of availability.
  3. c) To confirm a Reservation, a Guest must pay the Initial Reservation Payment (as defined below under the heading “Reservation Confirmation”) within 4 days of Kuero’ email confirming the availability of the Accommodation for the requested dates and sending payment information to Guest (the “Reservation Payment Period”). Kuero shall hold the requested dates at the Accommodation during the Reservation Payment Period.
  4. d) Once receipt of the Initial Reservation Payment is confirmed, Kuero will instruct the Owner to definitively book the Accommodation for you on the dates you have requested.  Subsequently, Kuero will send you an email confirming your Reservation.
  5. e) By submitting an inquiry you will be opted to receive our Kuero emails.

Your delay or failure to make the Initial Reservation Payment within the Reservation Payment Period will result in the lapse of the hold on your requested dates at the Accommodation, and Kuero will not be able to guarantee the Accommodation’s availability for the requested dates.  If you make the Reservation Payment outside of the Reservation Payment Period and the Accommodation is no longer available, Kuero will reject the payment, in which case you should receive a refund of the entire amount of the payment less any non-refundable credit card charges, bank transaction fees or similar charges.

In connection with your requested Reservation, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to Kuero or its third party payment processor. You agree to pay Kuero for any confirmed Reservations in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods described on the Site – e.g. by bank transfer, PayPal or credit card. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card, PayPal account or bank account provided as part of requesting the Reservation either directly by Kuero or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site. You also authorize Kuero to charge your credit card in the event of damage caused at an Accommodation as contemplated under “Damage to Accommodations” below and for the Security Deposit, if applicable. If you are directed to a third party payment processor, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of that third party’s service and that third party’s personal data collection practices. You are advised to review the terms and conditions and privacy policy of these third parties before using their services.

 

Reservation Confirmation

Guests using credit cards issued in certain countries may be subject to surcharges required by local law. You assume all costs, expenses, fees, taxes or other expenditures applied to any payments or wire transfers by any credit card company, bank or government authority involved in the transaction (even if the credit card company, bank or government authority technically charges Kuero).  Following successful processing of your Initial Reservation Payment, Kuero (or its representative) will send you a confirmation email summarizing your Reservation. Kuero reserves the right to charge the Initial Reservation Payment and the Reservation Balance (as defined below) together, summing to 100% of total Booking Payment, according to each property’s booking & payment policy.

 

Reservation Balance

The Reservation Balance is the remaining balance of the total Booking Payment after deducting the Initial Reservation Payment.  Payment of the Reservation Balance is due at least 20 days in advance of check-in. (Reservation balances differ from property to property. Please check at point of booking for exact payment policies for your rental.) It can be paid via Visa, MasterCard or via bank transfer. Any and all commissions, charges, taxes and rates applicable to Reservation Balance shall be solely borne by the Guest.

 

Administration and Additional Fees

In some properties, you will be charged a Service Fee, which is payable in conjunction with the Initial Reservation Payment. Additional fees may be charged for cleaning services provided more frequently than once per week during your stay. Our Reservations Team will inform you of any fee prior to booking.

 

Extensions

Any desired extension of a Reservation that has already commenced will be subject to availability and will be treated as a new Reservation. Consequently, the Accommodation may not be available to occupy and prices for the Accommodation may not be available at the same rate. In order to confirm an extension with a start date within 30 days, you will need to immediately pay the full amount of the Booking Payment for the term of the extension. In order to confirm an extension more than 30 days in advance of its start date, 50% of the total price of the Booking Payment for the extended term will be due, with the remaining Reservation Balance for that term due according to accommodation’s payment policy. In either case, a new contract must be signed upon confirmation, and any monies paid towards an extension are non-refundable.

 

Unavailability of the Accommodation and Situations Affecting your Stay

If, for any reason, the Accommodation booked becomes unavailable on the requested dates or if any problem or defect is discovered or occurs during check-in or during the Guest’s stay, which would frustrate the Guest’s use and enjoyment of the Accommodation prior to completion of his or her stay, Kuero will notify the Guest that made the Reservation and make all commercially reasonable efforts to provide an alternative Accommodation for the requested dates. Kuero will use commercially reasonable efforts to locate an alternative Accommodation with similar amenities at the same price until the problem or defect in the Accommodation is resolved or the Reservation contract terminates (whichever is sooner), but if we cannot locate a suitable, similar Accommodation, we will inform the Guest of available alternative Accommodations and how they differ from the reserved Accommodation with respect to features and price.

If the Guest is unsatisfied with the alternative Accommodation offered as a result of unavailability, a problem or a defect, he or she may choose to: (a) cancel the Reservation and receive full reimbursement of the Initial Reservation Payment and the Reservation Balance (if any) paid to Kuero if the unavailability, problem or defect is discovered before or during check-in; or (b) receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the unused Reservation term if a problem or defect is discovered during the Guest’s stay.

Neither Kuero nor the Owner will relocate Guests, reimburse Reservation payments or cancel a Reservation in response to requests or complaints resulting from or related to causes that are  beyond Kuero’s or the Owner’s control, unrelated to the Accommodation or due to acts of God or other force majeure event, including without limitation, general street noise or any kind of disturbance caused by construction, maintenance or repair (whether or not to the Accommodation or the building in which it is located), the condition of the hallways or other amenities, maintenance or repairs of common areas ordered by the building management, repairs to neighboring properties, interruption of the Internet or other services and any similar events affecting the Guest’s stay in the Accommodation but beyond the Owner’s or Kuero’s control.

 

Nevertheless, Kuero will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve or minimize the situation.  Kuero cannot and does not guarantee that its eventual resolution of the situation will not increase expenses for the Guest, including increased Reservation Payments or other expenditures. A Guest’s exclusive remedies against Kuero in any of the above-described events are to: (i) accept Kuero’s alternative Accommodation arrangements or (ii) cancel the remaining portion of the accommodation agreement and receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the reservation term cancelled.

 

Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by law, you accept all risk related to your use of the Site and Services. Neither Kuero nor any party involved in creating, producing or delivering the Site or Services will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data, loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure, the costs of substitute products or services, damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress associated with use of the Site or Services or in any way in connection with these Terms, or for any damages for which you are held liable in connection with your stay in an Accommodation even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose.  Your exclusive remedy against Kuero in any way connected to your use of the Site or Services is to discontinue your use of the Site or the Services.  You hereby waive and release any and all statutory, equitable or common law remedies for monetary damages you may have against Kuero in connection with any damage related to these Terms, the Site, the Services or your stay in an Accommodation. All limitations on liability in these Terms and the exclusive remedies described herein are fundamental bases of the bargain between you and Kuero.

 

Flight Information

Our Guest Experience staff will contact the Guest upon confirmation of Reservation to request his/her flight information. This information is necessary for Kuero to monitor the Guest’s flight and take any and all appropriate measures related to scheduling and/or rescheduling the check-in process. If the Guest misses or changes his or her flight or any other changes to the Guest’s flight information occur, the Guest must inform Kuero as soon as practicable.

 

Supplies at the Accommodations

The Accommodations will be supplied with basic hygiene products, including towels, toilet paper and soap. Kuero offers Guests the optional Services of supplying the Accommodations with beverages and snacks throughout the Guest’s stay.  We will charge you for the cost of beverages and snacks in addition to an administrative fee; you will be informed of the relevant administrative fee at the time you request this Service.

 

Special Requests

Please inform Kuero of any special request via email before making your Reservation so that Kuero can verify whether your request can be met.  Special requests may be subject to additional charges; Kuero will notify you of the proposed additional charges for your special request in writing for your authorization. Kuero shall not be responsible for your failure to notify us of any special request or necessity and shall not be liable, and shall not make any reimbursement, to any Guest whose stay is inadequate as a result of a failure to appropriately notify us of said special request or necessity.

 

Concierge Cancellation Policy

There will be no refund for the cancellation of any service (including, a la carte, pre-stocking of the home, tours, and activities) that is made after you confirm said service with Kuero, either via written confirmation or by paying for the service. Kuero acts on your behalf as your agent to schedule and confirm these services, and once it is scheduled and confirmed, you are obligated to pay Kuero. Please note that rescheduling an activity is the equivalent of canceling it and scheduling a new one.

 

Payment Processing Errors

We will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors of which we become aware. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.

All guests making reservations through Kuero are required to accept these terms and conditions. In order to complete your reservation, you must enter into this Accommodation Agreement between you and the owner of the Kuero property (the “Accommodation”).

Your reservation is not confirmed until you have agreed to and executed this Accommodation Agreement.

 

General Terms

  1. This Accommodation Agreement is between the person named on the Booking Confirmation, as defined in Paragraph 1.1 below, (the “Guest” or “you”) and the owner of the Accommodation (the “Owner”). The Owner is the person who owns the Accommodation or the person who is duly authorized to arrange for the occupancy of the Accommodation. This Accommodation Agreement details the terms and conditions which apply between you and the Owner concerning the use and occupancy of the Accommodation.
  2. You have chosen Kuero as your reservations supplier. Kuero is not the Owner, an agent of the Owner, or an agent of the Guest, and Kuero shall not have any obligations under this Accommodation Agreement. You understand and agree that Kuero is not a party to any agreements between you and the Owner, including this Accommodation Agreement. Kuero is not responsible for the availability or condition of the Accommodation, or for the Owner’s compliance with any statutes, laws, rules, bylaws, regulations and agreements to which the Owner is subject or which relate to the Accommodation or by which the Owner of the Accommodation is bound.
  3. This Accommodation Agreement is a LICENSE TO OCCUPY the Accommodation for your requested dates. THIS IS NOT A LEASE OR TENANCY AGREEMENT, NOR DOES IT CONVEY ANY PROPERTY RIGHTS OR INTEREST IN REAL ESTATE TO THE GUEST. THE GUEST IS NOT A TENANT OF THE PROPERTY AND HAS NOT BEEN GRANTED EXCLUSIVE POSSESSION OF THE PROPERTY. By accepting this Accommodation Agreement, you accept that you are entering into a non-exclusive license to occupy the Accommodation for your requested dates. You acknowledge that you have no right to stay in the Accommodation or occupy any part of the Accommodation after the period outlined in your Booking Confirmation, as defined in Paragraph 1.1 below, and have no rights to recurring usage or renewal of the Accommodation. You are not entitled to make any changes to the Accommodation nor can you move or remove any of its furnishings, appliances, fixtures, or other items in or around the Accommodation. You must abide by the Terms and Conditions of Kuero, as well as any additional restrictions imposed by the Owner.

Booking & Cancellation Details

  1. The Accommodation will be booked for your requested dates once you have agreed to the terms and conditions of this Accommodation Agreement and have received a Payment Confirmation by email, collectively, the “Booking Confirmation.” The Owner is not obliged to make this Accommodation available, nor is a binding contract in place, until the Payment Confirmation is sent by email.
  2. Unless otherwise stated in the Booking Confirmation, then the terms below will apply.
  3. Cancellation penalties can differ broadly from property to property. To cancel your booking you must provide Kuero with written notice of your cancellation. Generally speaking cancellation penalties are as follows:
    1. No fees apply if the reservation is cancelled earlier than eight weeks prior to the scheduled arrival date. Any taken deposit is fully refunded.
    2. 31-60 Days: In case the booking is cancelled between 60 and 31 days prior to arrival, 30% of the total accommodation cost is charged as cancellation fee.
    3. 01-30 Days: In case the booking is cancelled later than 30 days prior to arrival, in case of no-show or in case of early departure, the total accommodation cost (100%) is charged as cancellation fee.

Please check at point of booking for exact cancellation penalties for your rental.

  1. We strongly recommend that you have adequate travel insurance cover for you and your party. This will not only provide cover for you while you are away but will also provide cancellation cover should you, for whatever reason, be forced to cancel your trip. As explained in our cancellation policy, should you cancel your booking 4 weeks prior arrival you will remain liable for the full cost of the holiday.
  2. Except in extenuating circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Owner or in emergency situations, as determined by Kuero, the Owner is not entitled to cancel a reservation once a Payment Confirmation has been sent. If, for any reason, the Accommodation you booked becomes unavailable on the requested dates or if any problem or defect is discovered upon check in or during your stay, which would reduce your use and enjoyment of the Accommodation prior to the completion of your stay, Kuero will notify you and make all commercially reasonable efforts to provide an alternative Accommodation for the requested dates. Kuero will use commercially reasonable efforts to locate an alternative Accommodation with similar amenities at the same rental price until the problem or defect in the Accommodation is resolved or the rental contract terminates (whichever is sooner), but if Kuero cannot locate a suitable, similar Accommodation, Kuero will inform you of available alternative Accommodations and how they differ from the reserved or rented Accommodation with respect to features and price.
  3. In the event that you are unsatisfied with the alternative Accommodation offered to you, you may choose to:
    1. Cancel the reservation and receive full reimbursement of the Initial Reservation Payment and Rent Balance (if any) paid to Kuero if the issue is discovered before or during check-in; or
    2. Receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the unused rental term if an issue is discovered during your stay.
  4. In the event that Kuero is unable to assist in finding suitable alternative accommodations, you will be provided with a full refund. Kuero and the Owner shall have no further responsibility or liability as a result of cancelling the reservation.
  5. Neither Kuero nor the Owner shall have any obligation to relocate guests, reimburse rental payments, or cancel a reservation in response to requests or complaints resulting from or related to causes that are beyond Kuero’ or the Owner’s control, unrelated to the Accommodation, or due to acts of God or other force majeure events, including without limitation, general street noise of any kind, disturbance caused by construction, maintenance, or repair, the condition of the hallways or other amenities, temporary malfunctioning of elevators, maintenance or repairs of common areas ordered by building management, repairs to neighboring properties, interruption of the Internet or other services, and any similar events affecting your stay in the Accommodation. Nevertheless, Kuero will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve or minimize these situations. Kuero cannot and does not guarantee that the eventual resolution of the situation will not increase expenses for you, including increased rent payments or other expenditures.

 

Payment Details

  1. The Initial Reservation Payment is defined and stated in your Booking Confirmation and is typically 30% of total rent, depending on the type of your Accommodation and the duration of your stay. Kuero reserves the right to charge the Initial Reservation Payment and the Rent Balance, as defined below, together, summing to 100% of total rent upon Reservation Confirmation, together with applicable Service Fees. You will be notified of these payments and any additional fees prior to booking.
  2. Payment of the Rent Balance is due at least 20 days in advance of the Check-In Date.

If you do not notify Kuero of any such damage, you will be responsible for such damage on a repair or replacement-cost basis.
    3. If damages or losses are found upon inspection during or after Check-Out Date, the cost to repair or replace such damages or losses shall be charged to your credit card or other method of payment pending the receipt of documentation duly evidencing the resulting repair or replacement costs, and the remaining amount of the security deposit will be returned to you.

Kuero is not responsible for any damages caused to or within the Property, including without limitation, any broken, stolen or lost items – whether they be your property or that of the Owner.
    4. If damages to the Accommodation or its contents exceed the amount of the security deposit, you shall be responsible for delivering to Kuero the funds necessary to fully repair such damages within 5 business days of Kuero sending you the relevant estimates or receipts.

How the Site Works

The Site can be used to facilitate the booking of residential and other properties listed on the Site. As stated above, Kuero makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Guests to arrange for bookings of Accommodations. You understand and agree that Kuero is not a party to any agreements entered into between Guests and Owners, nor does Kuero have any control over the conduct of Owners, Guests or other users of the Site.  Kuero is not an Owner, a real estate broker, agent, insurer or operator of properties, including, but not limited to, hotel rooms, other any other type of lodging or temporary accommodation, nor is it a provider of properties, including, but not limited to, hotel rooms, other lodgings or Accommodations. Kuero’ responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the Site and Services and (ii) serving as the Owners’ collection agent for all payments not collected directly from Guests by Owners.

 

Much of the information regarding each Accommodation is provided by its Owners, including, on occasion, the photographs themselves.  Photographs of, and information about, an Accommodation are published on the Site to offer prospective guests a reasonable notion regarding the quality and characteristics of the Accommodation.  Photographs of the Accommodations are not necessarily accurate visual representations of the Accommodation nor its features and decor.

 

Although Kuero does endeavor to verify and update information about the Accommodations and to update photographs of the Accommodations published on the Site, Kuero does not endorse any User Content or any Accommodation and shall therefore not be liable to any user or Guest if the published information, User Content, or photographs do not reflect modifications to the décor or other features of the Accommodations made by their respective Owners.  Kuero does not control the condition, legality or suitability of any Accommodation.  Kuero is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all listings and Accommodations. Accordingly, any and all Reservations are made at the Guest’s own risk.

 

Bookings and Financial Terms

The Owners, not Kuero, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available Accommodations reserved through the Site and Services.  If you, as a Guest, choose to confirm a Reservation with Kuero, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Accommodation’s Owner, and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Accommodation imposed by the Owner. You acknowledge and agree that that you, and not Kuero, will be responsible for performing the obligations under any such agreements, that Kuero is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of any collection obligations hereunder, Kuero disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.

Only persons who have legal capacity in both their country of residence and the country where the Accommodation is located and who have capacity to guarantee payment of all contracted Services can make Reservations and execute a lease agreement with the Owner of the Accommodation.

 

Stay

The minimum stay required for most Accommodations is two nights; however, Accommodations may require minimum stays of periods as long as one week.

 

Reservation Procedure

You agree to the following procedure for making and confirming Reservations:

  1. a) Upon receiving a Reservation request, Kuero will contact the Owner to verify whether the Accommodation is available. Certain Accommodations are listed on the Kuero Site with the “Book Now” option. For Accommodations that can be reserved through this option, Owners have already provided Kuero with the availability of the Accommodations.
  2. b) If a Reservation request is submitted through the “Book Now” option, Kuero will contact the Guest within 24 hours to confirm the availability of the Accommodation.  If the “Book Now” option is not available for the relevant Accommodation, Kuero will contact the Guest to confirm whether the Accommodation is available on the requested dates at the email address provided after receiving the Owner’s confirmation of availability.
  3. c) To confirm a Reservation, a Guest must pay the Initial Reservation Payment (as defined below under the heading “Reservation Confirmation”) within 4 days of Kuero’ email confirming the availability of the Accommodation for the requested dates and sending payment information to Guest (the “Reservation Payment Period”). Kuero shall hold the requested dates at the Accommodation during the Reservation Payment Period.
  4. d) Once receipt of the Initial Reservation Payment is confirmed, Kuero will instruct the Owner to definitively book the Accommodation for you on the dates you have requested.  Subsequently, Kuero will send you an email confirming your Reservation.
  5. e) By submitting an inquiry you will be opted to receive our Kuero emails.

Your delay or failure to make the Initial Reservation Payment within the Reservation Payment Period will result in the lapse of the hold on your requested dates at the Accommodation, and Kuero will not be able to guarantee the Accommodation’s availability for the requested dates.  If you make the Reservation Payment outside of the Reservation Payment Period and the Accommodation is no longer available, Kuero will reject the payment, in which case you should receive a refund of the entire amount of the payment less any non-refundable credit card charges, bank transaction fees or similar charges.

In connection with your requested Reservation, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to Kuero or its third party payment processor. You agree to pay Kuero for any confirmed Reservations in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods described on the Site – e.g. by bank transfer, PayPal or credit card. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card, PayPal account or bank account provided as part of requesting the Reservation either directly by Kuero or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site. You also authorize Kuero to charge your credit card in the event of damage caused at an Accommodation as contemplated under “Damage to Accommodations” below and for the Security Deposit, if applicable. If you are directed to a third party payment processor, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of that third party’s service and that third party’s personal data collection practices. You are advised to review the terms and conditions and privacy policy of these third parties before using their services.

 

Reservation Confirmation

Guests using credit cards issued in certain countries may be subject to surcharges required by local law. You assume all costs, expenses, fees, taxes or other expenditures applied to any payments or wire transfers by any credit card company, bank or government authority involved in the transaction (even if the credit card company, bank or government authority technically charges Kuero).  Following successful processing of your Initial Reservation Payment, Kuero (or its representative) will send you a confirmation email summarizing your Reservation. Kuero reserves the right to charge the Initial Reservation Payment and the Reservation Balance (as defined below) together, summing to 100% of total Booking Payment, according to each property’s booking & payment policy.

 

Reservation Balance

The Reservation Balance is the remaining balance of the total Booking Payment after deducting the Initial Reservation Payment.  Payment of the Reservation Balance is due at least 20 days in advance of check-in. (Reservation balances differ from property to property. Please check at point of booking for exact payment policies for your rental.) It can be paid via Visa, MasterCard or via bank transfer. Any and all commissions, charges, taxes and rates applicable to Reservation Balance shall be solely borne by the Guest.

 

Administration and Additional Fees

In some properties, you will be charged a Service Fee, which is payable in conjunction with the Initial Reservation Payment. Additional fees may be charged for cleaning services provided more frequently than once per week during your stay. Our Reservations Team will inform you of any fee prior to booking.

 

Extensions

Any desired extension of a Reservation that has already commenced will be subject to availability and will be treated as a new Reservation. Consequently, the Accommodation may not be available to occupy and prices for the Accommodation may not be available at the same rate. In order to confirm an extension with a start date within 30 days, you will need to immediately pay the full amount of the Booking Payment for the term of the extension. In order to confirm an extension more than 30 days in advance of its start date, 50% of the total price of the Booking Payment for the extended term will be due, with the remaining Reservation Balance for that term due according to accommodation’s payment policy. In either case, a new contract must be signed upon confirmation, and any monies paid towards an extension are non-refundable.

 

Unavailability of the Accommodation and Situations Affecting your Stay

If, for any reason, the Accommodation booked becomes unavailable on the requested dates or if any problem or defect is discovered or occurs during check-in or during the Guest’s stay, which would frustrate the Guest’s use and enjoyment of the Accommodation prior to completion of his or her stay, Kuero will notify the Guest that made the Reservation and make all commercially reasonable efforts to provide an alternative Accommodation for the requested dates. Kuero will use commercially reasonable efforts to locate an alternative Accommodation with similar amenities at the same price until the problem or defect in the Accommodation is resolved or the Reservation contract terminates (whichever is sooner), but if we cannot locate a suitable, similar Accommodation, we will inform the Guest of available alternative Accommodations and how they differ from the reserved Accommodation with respect to features and price.

If the Guest is unsatisfied with the alternative Accommodation offered as a result of unavailability, a problem or a defect, he or she may choose to: (a) cancel the Reservation and receive full reimbursement of the Initial Reservation Payment and the Reservation Balance (if any) paid to Kuero if the unavailability, problem or defect is discovered before or during check-in; or (b) receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the unused Reservation term if a problem or defect is discovered during the Guest’s stay.

Neither Kuero nor the Owner will relocate Guests, reimburse Reservation payments or cancel a Reservation in response to requests or complaints resulting from or related to causes that are  beyond Kuero’s or the Owner’s control, unrelated to the Accommodation or due to acts of God or other force majeure event, including without limitation, general street noise or any kind of disturbance caused by construction, maintenance or repair (whether or not to the Accommodation or the building in which it is located), the condition of the hallways or other amenities, maintenance or repairs of common areas ordered by the building management, repairs to neighboring properties, interruption of the Internet or other services and any similar events affecting the Guest’s stay in the Accommodation but beyond the Owner’s or Kuero’s control.

 

Nevertheless, Kuero will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve or minimize the situation.  Kuero cannot and does not guarantee that its eventual resolution of the situation will not increase expenses for the Guest, including increased Reservation Payments or other expenditures. A Guest’s exclusive remedies against Kuero in any of the above-described events are to: (i) accept Kuero’s alternative Accommodation arrangements or (ii) cancel the remaining portion of the accommodation agreement and receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the reservation term cancelled.

 

Limitation of Liability

To the maximum extent permitted by law, you accept all risk related to your use of the Site and Services. Neither Kuero nor any party involved in creating, producing or delivering the Site or Services will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data, loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure, the costs of substitute products or services, damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress associated with use of the Site or Services or in any way in connection with these Terms, or for any damages for which you are held liable in connection with your stay in an Accommodation even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose.  Your exclusive remedy against Kuero in any way connected to your use of the Site or Services is to discontinue your use of the Site or the Services.  You hereby waive and release any and all statutory, equitable or common law remedies for monetary damages you may have against Kuero in connection with any damage related to these Terms, the Site, the Services or your stay in an Accommodation. All limitations on liability in these Terms and the exclusive remedies described herein are fundamental bases of the bargain between you and Kuero.

 

Flight Information

Our Guest Experience staff will contact the Guest upon confirmation of Reservation to request his/her flight information. This information is necessary for Kuero to monitor the Guest’s flight and take any and all appropriate measures related to scheduling and/or rescheduling the check-in process. If the Guest misses or changes his or her flight or any other changes to the Guest’s flight information occur, the Guest must inform Kuero as soon as practicable.

 

Supplies at the Accommodations

The Accommodations will be supplied with basic hygiene products, including towels, toilet paper and soap. Kuero offers Guests the optional Services of supplying the Accommodations with beverages and snacks throughout the Guest’s stay.  We will charge you for the cost of beverages and snacks in addition to an administrative fee; you will be informed of the relevant administrative fee at the time you request this Service.

 

Special Requests

Please inform Kuero of any special request via email before making your Reservation so that Kuero can verify whether your request can be met.  Special requests may be subject to additional charges; Kuero will notify you of the proposed additional charges for your special request in writing for your authorization. Kuero shall not be responsible for your failure to notify us of any special request or necessity and shall not be liable, and shall not make any reimbursement, to any Guest whose stay is inadequate as a result of a failure to appropriately notify us of said special request or necessity.

 

Concierge Cancellation Policy

There will be no refund for the cancellation of any service (including, a la carte, pre-stocking of the home, tours, and activities) that is made after you confirm said service with Kuero, either via written confirmation or by paying for the service. Kuero acts on your behalf as your agent to schedule and confirm these services, and once it is scheduled and confirmed, you are obligated to pay Kuero. Please note that rescheduling an activity is the equivalent of canceling it and scheduling a new one.

 

Payment Processing Errors

We will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors of which we become aware. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.

+ Guest Accommodation Agreement

All guests making reservations through Kuero are required to accept these terms and conditions. In order to complete your reservation, you must enter into this Accommodation Agreement between you and the owner of the Kuero property (the “Accommodation”).

Your reservation is not confirmed until you have agreed to and executed this Accommodation Agreement.

 

General Terms

  1. This Accommodation Agreement is between the person named on the Booking Confirmation, as defined in Paragraph 1.1 below, (the “Guest” or “you”) and the owner of the Accommodation (the “Owner”). The Owner is the person who owns the Accommodation or the person who is duly authorized to arrange for the occupancy of the Accommodation. This Accommodation Agreement details the terms and conditions which apply between you and the Owner concerning the use and occupancy of the Accommodation.
  2. You have chosen Kuero as your reservations supplier. Kuero is not the Owner, an agent of the Owner, or an agent of the Guest, and Kuero shall not have any obligations under this Accommodation Agreement. You understand and agree that Kuero is not a party to any agreements between you and the Owner, including this Accommodation Agreement. Kuero is not responsible for the availability or condition of the Accommodation, or for the Owner’s compliance with any statutes, laws, rules, bylaws, regulations and agreements to which the Owner is subject or which relate to the Accommodation or by which the Owner of the Accommodation is bound.
  3. This Accommodation Agreement is a LICENSE TO OCCUPY the Accommodation for your requested dates. THIS IS NOT A LEASE OR TENANCY AGREEMENT, NOR DOES IT CONVEY ANY PROPERTY RIGHTS OR INTEREST IN REAL ESTATE TO THE GUEST. THE GUEST IS NOT A TENANT OF THE PROPERTY AND HAS NOT BEEN GRANTED EXCLUSIVE POSSESSION OF THE PROPERTY. By accepting this Accommodation Agreement, you accept that you are entering into a non-exclusive license to occupy the Accommodation for your requested dates. You acknowledge that you have no right to stay in the Accommodation or occupy any part of the Accommodation after the period outlined in your Booking Confirmation, as defined in Paragraph 1.1 below, and have no rights to recurring usage or renewal of the Accommodation. You are not entitled to make any changes to the Accommodation nor can you move or remove any of its furnishings, appliances, fixtures, or other items in or around the Accommodation. You must abide by the Terms and Conditions of Kuero, as well as any additional restrictions imposed by the Owner. Your license to occupy the Accommodation is subject to immediate termination if you or any parties that occupy the Accommodation during your stay violate the terms of this Accommodation Agreement, the Terms & Conditions of Kuero, or any other agreement between you and another party in relation to the Accommodation.
  4. You agree to cooperate with and assist Kuero in good faith, and to provide Kuero with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Kuero, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Guests or Owners relating to Accommodations or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation or with respect to any investigation undertaken by Kuero or a representative of Kuero regarding use or abuse of the Site or the Services.

 

Booking & Cancellation Details

  1. The Accommodation will be booked for your requested dates once you have agreed to the terms and conditions of this Accommodation Agreement and have received a Payment Confirmation by email, collectively, the “Booking Confirmation.” The Owner is not obliged to make this Accommodation available, nor is a binding contract in place, until the Payment Confirmation is sent by email.
  2. Unless otherwise stated in the Booking Confirmation, then the terms below will apply.
  3. Cancellation penalties can differ broadly from property to property. To cancel your booking you must provide Kuero with written notice of your cancellation. Generally speaking cancellation penalties are as follows:
    1. No fees apply if the reservation is cancelled earlier than eight weeks prior to the scheduled arrival date. Any taken deposit is fully refunded.
    2. 31-60 Days: In case the booking is cancelled between 60 and 31 days prior to arrival, 30% of the total accommodation cost is charged as cancellation fee.
    3. 01-30 Days: In case the booking is cancelled later than 30 days prior to arrival, in case of no-show or in case of early departure, the total accommodation cost (100%) is charged as cancellation fee.

Please check at point of booking for exact cancellation penalties for your rental.

  1. We strongly recommend that you have adequate travel insurance cover for you and your party. This will not only provide cover for you while you are away but will also provide cancellation cover should you, for whatever reason, be forced to cancel your trip. As explained in our cancellation policy, should you cancel your booking 4 weeks prior arrival you will remain liable for the full cost of the holiday.
  2. Except in extenuating circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Owner or in emergency situations, as determined by Kuero, the Owner is not entitled to cancel a reservation once a Payment Confirmation has been sent. If, for any reason, the Accommodation you booked becomes unavailable on the requested dates or if any problem or defect is discovered upon check in or during your stay, which would reduce your use and enjoyment of the Accommodation prior to the completion of your stay, Kuero will notify you and make all commercially reasonable efforts to provide an alternative Accommodation for the requested dates. Kuero will use commercially reasonable efforts to locate an alternative Accommodation with similar amenities at the same rental price until the problem or defect in the Accommodation is resolved or the rental contract terminates (whichever is sooner), but if Kuero cannot locate a suitable, similar Accommodation, Kuero will inform you of available alternative Accommodations and how they differ from the reserved or rented Accommodation with respect to features and price.
  3. In the event that you are unsatisfied with the alternative Accommodation offered to you, you may choose to:
    1. Cancel the reservation and receive full reimbursement of the Initial Reservation Payment and Rent Balance (if any) paid to Kuero if the issue is discovered before or during check-in; or
    2. Receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the unused rental term if an issue is discovered during your stay.
