Terms and Conditions – Payment
Payment of the booking deposit constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

Please be advised that 50% of the total quote or R700.00, whichever is the greater is required for all bookings. Failure to pay deposit by the stipulated date will result in cancellation of the provisional booking and Happy Holiday Homes will retain the right to re-hire it to another client.
Please quote your booking code on your deposit slip whenever you make a deposit.

Please ensure that your account is settled in full at least one week, (One month for Easter and December bookings), before the date of arrival. NO KEYS WILL BE RELEASED WITHOUT FULL & FINAL PAYMENT.
A breakage deposit of R500.00, R1000.00 or R2000.00 per booking will be retained in trust. The deposit will be refunded approximately two to three weeks after your departure but may take 4 weeks during holiday periods, less any deductions necessary. You will receive the deposit through a bank transfer to the bank account that you stipulate on your breakage deposit form that is supplied in your arrivals envelope.
Inventories must be checked by the tenant upon arrival, and any discrepancies must be reported within 12 hours of arrival to the Happy Holiday Homes office. If no shortages or damages are reported, the contents of the units will be regarded as correct and the tenants will be held responsible for any shortages or breakages incurred.
