RENTALS & CONDITIONS 2010

Arrivals & Departures:
During the busier summer period, June – September inclusive, most rentals in the area of Positano start and finish on a Saturday requiring a minimum stay of one week. During the other months arrival and departures days can be negotiated. However, I do have a group of very attractive beach apartments in Positano (APT SPIAGGIA) that will often handle bookings for 4 -5 days during mid/ high season, so please consider them.

Security Deposit:
There will always be a security deposit to pay on arrival at your apartment or villa. This will ensure payment of phone expenses and/or property damage. It will be reimbursed on your departure minus any expenses incurred during your stay. This will range from 200 € – 500 € according to the size of the property and will be specified on the property information page, it should be given to the guardian who will hand over the keys and guide you through your property. This is NOT to be send via bank transfer with your initial deposit, but paid on arrival.

Cleaning Services:
Are generally included in the weekly rental fee. This will range from an initial and final weekly clean to daily service where staff is included in the larger villas. In most cases extra cleaning services can be acquired at an additional cost together with cooking services. This will also be specified on each property information page.

Transport:
I can also suggest a good local Limousine service to get you from Naples or Rome to Positano. Prices vary according to the company : Naples – Positano , apx 120€ one way. And Rome – Positano apx 450€ one way. Both these tariffs are for a regular limousine sedan service, but station wagons for clients travelling with extra luggage and mini vans for larger groups can also be booked with an additional fee.

PAYMENT

All villa and apartment prices are quoted in Euro. All bookings are confirmed with a simple bank transfer (Swift) directly to Italy. Rentals are payable in full at time of booking where the booking is made less than six months before arrival. For booking made more than six months prior to arrival, unless discounts are involved, the booking is confirmed with payment of a 50% deposit with the balance due two months before arrival. Bank fees for these transfers are at the cost of the client. Bank details will be supplied at the time of booking confirmation. Some property owners may negotiate alternate deposits and final payments. Payment installment 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.

Cancellation Conditions:
In the event of a cancellation, refunds of booking payments are made by the property owner after deducting any bank charges and any cancellation fee applicable for their booking conditions. Refunds are made in Euro converted to your local currency at the rate of exchange applicable at the date of refund.

Booking conditions may vary slightly from property to property and will be confirmed with the owner at 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 – Full refund, less any bank charges.
  • Between 4 and 6 months prior to arrival – Refund less a cancellation fee of 25% of the full rental for the period of booking and any bank charges.
  • Between 2 and 4 months prior to arrival – Refund less a cancellation fee of 50% of the full rental for the period of booking and any bank charges

Less than 2 months prior to arrival – No refund is applicable.

TARIFFS

Seasons:
All property owners determine their own dates for High, Medium and Low season. Some properties deal with only High and Low seasons and this can vary slightly from owner to owner. But generally speaking June – September is considered High Season, so the rents are more costly , May and October can be considered Medium season OR High Season and all the other months are considered Low Season when tariffs are at their lowest, excluding Easter and Xmas which are High Season.

Villa & Apartment Prices:
Please see individual property pages on this website. Mid and Low Season prices will be apx 30-50% less than High Season prices.
