When you make a booking with our Site you will have to provide us with your credit card information, such as its name number expiry date. It is also required should you go via our provided third party payment gateway such as PayPal. When your booking is confirmed, the charge that is clearly displayed during the booking process will be charged to your credit card. This will be charged by awinetrip on behalf of each Listing Partner. If your booking is not confirmed, your credit card will not be charged. Under no circumstances will awinetrip be liable for any kind of commission that your bank might charge you. The outstanding balance or additional charges that may be incurred during your consumption of service or stay will be settled by you in the local currency with the Listing Partner. For certain rates or special offers, our Listing Partners may require credit card details or via PayPal payment gateway in order to guarantee your booking. For certain rates or special offers, your credit card may be pre­authorised or charged upon booking and confirmation of the booking, sometimes without any option for refund. In such circumstances (ie. pre­authorise) we will forward your credit card information securely to our Listing Partner at which your booking is made. By making the booking through our Site you are deemed to have unconditionally and irrevocably authorised and consented to our release of your credit card information to the Listing Partner concerned for this purpose. Awinetrip does not accept liability for any loss or damage or other sum or claim of any nature whatsoever (whether direct, indirect, consequential or otherwise) which arises directly, or indirectly in connection with the Site including for the avoidance of doubt and without limitation, any use of information or material contained on the Site. 

For payment made via third party payment gateway such as PayPal, a commission percentage will be charged since the use of PayPal services has a percentage of charge for each transaction. In consideration for the use of awinetrip’s online booking platform, we may charge a service fee where applicable. Unless stated otherwise on the Site or in any email confirmation received from our Site or from our Listing Partners, all prices on the Site are displayed including any applicable taxes (Please check with the relevant Listing Partner to confirm whether additional local taxes are payable to the Listing Partner at the time of your arrival if in doubt).

Each Listing Partner will have its own terms and conditions for cancellation / no­show policy. You are, therefore, strongly advised to read such terms and conditions , which are displayed on Listing Partner’s respective profile, carefully before making your booking. You will be bound by such terms and conditions once your booking is confirmed. In case of cancellation, we suggest that you should promptly and directly contact us to minimise any penalty or charges payable. When your booking is cancelled, the deposit, if one was paid to awinetrip upon booking and where applicable, can be either fully refunded to you or awinetrip may deduct necessary cancellation fee (details will be stated on your email confirmation at time of booking). Depending on the cancellation policy of the Listing Partner you booked with, and on whether penalties apply, the Listing Partner shall directly charge to your credit card account all penalties or charges that you are liable to pay for the cancellation. However, this does not apply in the case of a non­refundable rate where you cannot cancel your booking nor be reimbursed by any party. Any disputes relating to cancellation of reservation shall be dealt with or settled directly between you and the Listing Partner concerned, and we will not be involved or be held responsible in any way except to arrange for the refund of the deposit, where applicable, to provide information needed to calculate the penalties that apply and to pass your credit card information on to the Listing Partner concerned as aforesaid. No claim whatsoever shall be made by you against us in respect of any penalty or charges levied by the Listing Partner concerned for your cancellation / no­show of a booking and you shall seek your redress, if any, directly against the Listing Partner concerned. In order to cancel or amend any booking, please follow the instructions set out in your email confirmation and refer to the applicable policies and/or terms and conditions of the relevant Listing Partner. Please note that awinetrip will not be able to provide or procure that any refund is paid or amendment made to a booking to the extent that a Listing Partner s not obliged to provide any refund or make any amendment. Partners may update their offers (including any applicable cancellation policy and terms and conditions) on a regular basis. Please ensure that you have reviewed the relevant cancellation policy prior to booking through our Site. As stated above, when you make a booking with a Listing Partner, you enter into a contract with that Listing Partner directly and not with awinetrip. Your ability to cancel any booking and/or seek a refund if you fail to show up for any accommodation or service provided by any Listing Partner (for any reason whatsoever) depends on the cancellation policy and/or no-show policy of the relevant Listing Partner. 

Where you have entered your credit card details into the Site, the relevant Listing Partner may have placed a block on your card in the amount of the quoted cost of your booking and, if the check in date for any accommodation or service has passed, the relevant Listing Partner may have taken payment from your card in the amount quoted in your booking and/or cancellation fee. Where you have entered your credit card details into our PayPal payment gateway, we may have placed a block on your card in the amount of the quoted cost of your booking and, if the check in date for any accommodation or service has passed, we may have taken payment from your card in the amount of the quoted cost of your booking and/or a cancellation fee. We will use all reasonable endeavours to pay any refund due to you and/or remove any block on your credit card within 14 Business Days of receipt of your cancellation request. In respect of some special offers for accommodation or service we may list differing rates for the same offer on the same dates. The rates may take account of different standards of accommodation or service, different cancellation or refund policies or other reasons.
