FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are the properties exclusively for club members?

No, our properties can be accessed by all and we have a wide variety of luxury properties available from small, bespoke properties to large properties suitable for group travel.

Can I contact you if there is a problem with my booking?

You can contact anytime by call or by email.

Can we occupy the property before 4pm on the day of arrival?

To allow time for cleaning (especially during high season), we would ask you to arrive only between 4pm and 7pm on the first day of your stay, If your arrival is delayed please contact us.

Can we vacate the accommodation later than the confirmed time of 10 am?

This is not possible as the accommodation will need to be cleaned and prepared for the next guest. The owner of the property may be able to advise if local chargeable facilities are available for you to use.

Can you arrange additional services, e.g. concierge, chef service, sightseeing, etc. for me?

We are more than happy to arrange any additional services for you. We offer amongst others: concierge, butler, chef or cook services, extra maid hours, sightseeing tours, airport transfers, follow-me service, pre-arrival shopping, car rentals, private jets, flights and many more! It is strongly recommended that any extra services are booked well in advance of your holiday to avoid disappointment. Please note that a service charge applies.

Can you arrange my flights?

We do not arrange flights with property rentals.

Can you send me a brochure?

The best way to find out about the latest properties we have is via our website. Alternatively, we would of course be happy to supply you with some specific property details by email. If this is your preference, please contact us.

Do all properties have swimming pools?

Yes all of our properties have their own private swimming pools. Some swimming pools have safety features such as pool alarms, covers and fences, but not all.

How do you select the properties?

We have a dedicated Contracting and Product Team who work directly with our properties owners allowing us to control the quality of your holiday experience. Once a property has undergone the initial checklist of having a great location, excellent facilities and is very well-presented, we then carry out a rigorous inspection.

What does 'On Request' mean?

An ‘On Request’ property is one where we need to double check the availability and therefore it cannot be booked and paid for immediately.

What is the maximum capacity of your properties?

For each property the maximum capacity is clearly stated on the property’s description. This number includes children and infants.

What does 'sleeps 10+2' mean?

On some of the properties pages the occupancy is detailed as ‘Sleeps # + #’, for example ‘Sleeps 10 + 2’. This means that the property will comfortably accommodate 10 adults, but that an additional 2 guests could potentially be accommodated. However, the additional 2 could be child-sized beds/bedrooms or in separate accommodation which is not up to the same standard as the rest of the property. Obviously this will vary from property to property so please see the property page or ask us for details

Are the pictures and views on your site accurate representations of what we will be renting?

Yes. We are consistently maintaining and improving our properties during the quiet months and we update our pictures regularly. They are provided in good faith and in the belief that they are accurate and based on the latest information we received. However, we decline all responsibility for any modifications made by the owners without our knowledge.

Yes

Are the quoted prices inclusive of taxes?

Yes, unless otherwise informed at the time of booking.

When is my balance due and how can I pay?

Your balance is due 30 days prior to your first rental day. You can pay either by credit card, debit card, bank transfer or cheque or PayPal.

What is the security deposit?

As per our booking terms and conditions a security deposit of euro 500 (or higher amount if required) should be lodged at the time of booking.

This is to protect property owners for the cost of any damage or loss caused by willful or accidental damage by you or members of your party.

The deposit is collected, held and returned to you by us in the form of a credit card authorization as detailed on the booking form.

It is incumbent on the property owner to advise us within 14 days of any claim they have in respect of damage, loss or unpaid amounts. Your credit card authorization will be destroyed 28 days after the last day of the stay.

In the event that you or your party does cause damage or loss to a property, you must agree with the owner or agent prior to departure, the cost of damages.

It is usually impossible to reconcile such issues after departure if both parties are unable to agree the extent and cost of damages involved, and in such circumstances, we will debit the amount claimed from your credit card and then inform you in writing.

Who has access to my credit card details?

Your credit card payment is processed by secure payment site. Your credit card details are encrypted and stored with the Bank.

Will you share my personal information?

Information you supply to us will not be passed to any third party except the owner of the property.

We may share Personal Information with law enforcement agencies in the event of a criminal investigation or suspected illegal activity.

Will I receive written confirmation of my property booking?

Yes, as soon as you processed your credit card payment successfully you will receive a booking confirmation at you designated email address.

However, if you paid by bank transfer or cheque or PayPal, you will receive a notification email first – this is not your booking confirmation.

A bank transfer or cheque can take up to 5 working days. As soon as we receive the bank transfer / cheque we will send you’re booking confirmation to your email address.

Are properties insured?

As part of our rigorous inspection process we ask owners to insure but please note that you are responsible for any loss or damage that you or members of your party may cause to a property or its contents. You are required to report any damage to the property owner or to us, and to bear the cost of repair or replacement.

Can you arrange travel insurance for me?

We are not able to provide insurance cover nor can be held liable for any loss incurred through failure to take adequate insurance.

Should I take out travel insurance for my holiday?

We suggest that you take out adequate travel insurance. Many credit card companies include holiday insurance as do other more general insurance policies, so you should first check these.

Will I need to take travel adaptor plugs?

Yes – the accommodation will be fitted with local plug sockets so you will need to provide your own adaptors for any electrical items you take with you.

We were planning on bringing some DVDs from USA. Will they work on European DVD players?

Probably not, unfortunately. USA DVD players and discs are “Region 1”, while Greek ones are “Region 2”, making them incompatible. Many of our properties have DVD Movies, though, so you don’t need to be entirely without films!

Will my US cell phone work in Europe?

If you have a GSM cell phone, it should work in Europe. Once arrived you can buy a SIM card (you will need your ID for this) and switch your SIM card with it. Alternatively you can rent a GSM phone before you leave. We do, however, recommend you talk to your network provider or local cell phone retailer.

We're coming from the USA. What is the voltage in Greece? Should we bring adaptors or something?

Electricity in Greece and the rest of Europe is 220v (as opposed to 110volts in the US). Most laptops are designed to work at both 200v and 100v. If you have an appliance which only works at 110v you should bring a voltage converter with you as they are difficult to find in Greece.

You will also need a universal plug adaptor as Greece’s sockets are designed for 2 round-pronged plugs.

Can you recommend good restaurants in the area?

Upon arrival, a knowledgeable and English speaking member of our staff, will be happy to direct you to the best area eateries, as well as bakeries, markets, and anything else that may be of interest to you during you stay.

We plan to relax as much as possible and would love to have a masseuse come to our property once or twice. Is this possible?

Once again, we’d be happy to organise this in many of our properties. Just let us know in advance. Additional cost will apply

We plan to do a lot of touring round, sightseeing, but we don't want to drive every day. Can you arrange a private driver for us?

Absolutely! No problem.
