TERMS AND CONDITIONS CHARGES
Escapes is able to charge you for your bookings in a choice between:
You shall provide the details of your payment card and Escapes will have to verify: (i) the validity of the payment card (through a charge of a nominal value that is either refunded within a few days or deducted from the final payment due to the supplier) and, (ii) the availability of funds on the payment card (to be confirmed by the bank issuing your credit card). Escapes reserves the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion. Charges should be paid by the customer in the currency quoted by Escapes.
Many bank and credit card companies charge their account holders a transaction fee when the card issuer and the merchant location (as defined by the card brand (e.g. Visa, MasterCard, American Express) are in different countries. The currency exchange rate, if applicable, and any transaction fee are determined solely by the bank or other agency processing the transaction. These fees may be applied by the card issuer as a charge to the cardholders account. When applied by the card issuer, the fees will be listed separately from the transaction amount on a credit or debit card statement. This means the amount listed on your credit or debit card statement may be a different figure than the figure shown on the billing summary page for a reservation booked via Escapes. If you have any questions about these fees or any exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
