You will see a tab that says ‘INQUIRE ABOUT THIS PROPERTY’. This will put you in contact with me. Here’s were you get to ask me all the questions you have! OR GO TO THE BOOKING PAGE NOW..
When you have confirmed your booking, all bank details will be forwarded for your payment or deposit. Please do not forget to supply us with a phone number to contact you in case there is a type error with your email address. All promotional and discounted prices will be given at the time of booking.
VILLA & APTS PAYMENTS .
A 50% deposit in euro is required via bank transfer to our Italian financial institute immediately on booking to hold your property. The balanceis due two months prior to arrival.
If you have booked a property for less than one week, the full amount is due immediately to confirm your booking.
Some property owners may negotiate alternative deposits and payments and you will be notified at the time booking.
Payment instalment dates are established at the time of booking and late payments will attract a surcharge to be established by the owners at the time of payment.
PAYMENT FOR HOTELS & GUEST HOUSES.
To secure your hotel or guest house booking, your credit card details are required. Your card will not be debited until your arrival so you are free to select another form of payment on arrival.
ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES FOR VILLAS & APARTMENTS.
Most rentals on the Amalfi Coast during the High summer period (June – Sept) start and finish on a Saturday with a minimum of one week. There are however a few exceptions, so please ask. During less busy months, some properties will negotiate your required dates.
Generally check-in time is between 2pm & 7pm and check-out time at 10am. Please check this when booking.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURES FOR HOTELS AND GUEST HOUSES
Most check-in times are from 2 pm but this time will vary from hotel to hotel.
Check-out time is generally from 11 am – 12 noon. Again please check each individual hotel or guest house on booking.
All property and hotels may have varying seasons, the owners determine their own dates for high, mid and low season.
But generally speaking:
June – September, Easter & Xmas New Year – high season
March – May & October – mid season
All remaining months – low season
All Villa & Apt rentals will attract a cash security deposit to pay on arrival & the sum will be determined by the size and value of the property. This bond will cover any expenses for damages or costs (phone, shopping etc) incurred during your stay.
This security deposit will be reimbursed on your departure minus any expenses incurred during your stay. This is NOT to be sent via bank transfer with your initial deposit or payment, but paid in cash on arrival.
Naturally there is no security deposit for Hotel and Guest House bookings.
In the event of a cancellation after deposits or full payments have been made for a villa or guest house, refunds are made by the property owner after deducting all bank fees and any cancellation fee applicable to their booking conditions. Refunds are made in Euro converted to your local currency at the rate of exchange applicable to the date of refund.
Cancellation conditions may vary slightly from property to property and will be confirmed at the time of booking. Unless otherwise advised the following cancellation conditions apply to all properties.
If a booking is cancelled:
6 months or more prior to arrival – There will be a full refund according to the exchange rate at the time of cancellation, minus any bank charges.
Between 4 and 6 months prior to arrival – The refund will be minus a cancellation fee of 25% of the total rental price given at the time of booking and according to the exchange rate at the time of cancellation, minus any bank charges.
2 and 4 months prior to arrival – The refund will be minus a cancellation fee of 50% of the total rental price given at the time of booking according to the exchange rate at the time of cancellation, minus any bank charges.
Less than 2 months prior to arrival – There will be no refund.
If your need to cancel your hotel or guest house booking, please remember that most will not charge a cancellation fee up to one month prior to arrival.However during the month before your arrival there will be cancellation fees, according to how close to cancel to your booking. Naturally a ‘no show’ will attract full payment. For this it is important to check the cancellation conditions of each individual hotel or guest house when booking.
TRANSPORT to the AMALFI COAST
I can suggest a good local limousine service to get you from Naples, Rome or anywhere else in Italy to your property in Positano. Prices vary accordingly:
Naples – Positano – 120 euro one way and vice versa.
Rome – Positano – 450 euro one way and vice versa.
Both these tariffs are for a regular limousine sedan service, (4 pers) but station wagons for clients travelling with extra luggage and mini vans for larger groups can also be booked at an additional fee.
All my drivers have immaculate cars (generally Mercedes), speak good English, are local and will know details of where to take you and contact your concierge prior to arrival into Positano and are a wealth of information on the area….so ask away!
Cleaning services are generally included in the weekly rental fee. This will range from an initial and final weekly clean to daily cleaning where staff may be included in the price of the larger villas.
In most cases extra cleaning services can be requested at the time of booking for an additional fee together with cooking services. This will also be specified on each property information page.
